ItECORD ATTENDANCE MADE
AT B. OF h. E. MAY 1'AItTY.
Tills Is a yonr of record smashing In
North Platto, a yonr In which everyone
is " ori his toes" roady for the word
"gu" and whon the command Is Riven
he spurts. This rolatos to everything
connected with the war or with war
measure, and whon Division 88, B. of
L. E.. annoucod that thjri net proceeds
of the Thirty-sixth Annual May Party
would bo donated to tlio Hod Cross,
the arrangomont committee had reas
on to oxpoct a hlg crowd; a record
breaking crowd, and yet notwithstand
ing the awful Jam, overybody had a
good time. i
This May Party, which for thirty-six
years has been North Platto's big so
cial function, was held Wednesday
ovonlng, following tho concert given
at the 'nark by tho camp Kiinston oanu
Tills band concert made a slight delay
In ononlnc tlio May Party, but this did
not In any manner detract from tho
evening's onloymont. It was a little
after nlno when Stamp's orchestra
rondored 'the first numbor of tho con
cert program which preceded the
grand march. This program, which
lnculdcd solos by Paul Harrington,
whoso vocal work always delights tho
audience, was ono of more than usual
merit: It was a musical offering that
was Indeed complimentary to the
orchestra and each number received
the hearty npphiuso It so richly de
served. At tho conclusion of tho first
half of tho iprogram slides woro
thrown upon tho Bcrecn, these Includ

Tho attendants filled tho Jmlcony,
put a premium on stondlng room and
so crowded wns tho floor of tho big
hall that only about two-thirds of tho
floor spaco was bo dovoted to dancing.
This, of course, discommoded tho dan
cors to some extent, but tho Jolts and
Jostlo wcro taken, good naturedly.
Tho committees handtekl tho big
crowd nicely, won tho thanks of tho
dnncors when each of tho latter was
presented with a rose during the grand
march, and In overy way posslblo used
their itifrorts to mako tho ovonlng on
Joyablo to" each attendant. Sebastian
Schwnlger was chairman of tho com
mittee of arrangements, and with tho
aid of the committee had nicely dec
oratcd the hall In tho national colors.
Tho not proceeds of tho party will
bo in tho neighborhood of threo hun
dred dollars, which will bo turned
over to tho Red Cross Chapter.
