Churches to Hold Open Atr Services.
Many people in North Platte have
asked th different ministers why
union open air meetings were not held
during the hot summer months, espec
ially during July and August Thj
Ministerial Association took the mat
ter up and after careful consideration
the Methodist, Presbyterian, Lutheran,
Episcopal and Baptist churches decided
to unite in such services during the
months of July and August.
The school board very kindly con
sented to allow the churches tho use
of the high school grounds for this
purpose, and should the weather bo in
clement they have granted the use of
the high school auditorium for the ser
vice. The meetings will bo held at
eight o'clock in the ejqning when it
willbe cool and pleasant. The different
ministers of the city will preach at
these sm vices.
It is the plan to have a large chotus
made up of tho choirs of the city. Be
sides this there will bo the best of in
strumental music at all of the ser
vices. Seats will be provided for all.
It is thought that this will be the great
est step yet made for a closer unity of
the churches in our city, and will help
to oorrect the criticism which has been
made that our churches do not work to
gether. It is the common consent of
the ministers concerned that these
meetings should be of the Old Gospel
type, and such may be expected.
The following committees have been
appointed to see that nothing shall be
left undone to make these meetings a
success: Music Bruce Brown, chair
man; James Shaffer, Mrs. Hinman and
Mrs. Sam Ralston; Seating and Usher
ing Fred Peterson, Louis Johnson,
David Brooks. John Reynolds, Gustave
Dahlstrom, Ell Hanson, M. E. Crosby,
Frank Buchanan; Lighting C. 0. Wein
gand and M. E. Scott.
