At the request of tho Twentieth Cen
tury Club the council has designated
tho cast ond park as Memorial Park in
honor of Lincoln county boys who
passed away while In sorvlco in tli"
world war. This pnrk has been n
glected by reason of lack of funds
put in a water system, without whl !
trws, shrubbery and blue grass cm'
not very well exist. With m Incroan 1
levy for parks, tho monoy from whw h
will becomo available beginning noxt
May, and with the co-operation of th?
Twentieth Century Club, It Is hoV'l
to mako a start with Improvemfliits
that will flnnlly result In making thr
park a beautiful place. Unfortunately
North Platte purchased parks but nn
glected to provide funds In a proppt
amount to beautify thorn. Ton thous
and dollars aro needed to mnko im
provement that should have boon
made several, years ago. Tho drst
step to bo taken Is a water suMy.'
not only for tho oast ond parkwi
for tho Fourth ward park, and It Is
probably that In both Instances this
water supply must be obtained
through Independent plants, for the
present mains leading to both pnrks
aro Inadequate to supply tho needed
wntcr and the city is not in financial
shape to lay larger mains.
Rod Cross Roll Cull.
The third Red Cross Roll Call will
start Sunday, November 2d, and end
November 11th, and tho Lincoln Coun
ty Chapter is getting ready for the
campaign. In soliciting members In
tho country, the school districts Mil
bo used as tho unit division, and the
treasurer of each district will bo ask
ed to take charge of tho soliciting In
his district. Here in North Platte
committees will bo appointed to mako
a house to house canvass.
Tho Rod Cross needs universal co
operation In carrying out its .peace
program. It needs now, as It needed
then, tho dollars and tho hearts of
those who subscribed to tho second
roll call, and needs them as badly,
for the future work of tho organiza
tion Is great.

The keenest musical ear can not distinguish
any difference between the voice of the living
artist and the RE-CREATION of that voice by
the New Edison.
And does it not amaze you, too, that Mr. Edison

captures every subtle sweetness of the human
voice that gives you all the ear can give you of
the art of the world's great artist. No other
phonograph dares to make this direct comparison.
