Y. M. C. A. Meeting.
While the attendance at the V. M.
C. A. meeting held in Murray on
Monday evening was not quite up
to what was expected it would be, it
made up in enthusiasm and interest
what it fell short in the attendance.
Everyone in the audience will prove
a worker for the good cause, and
will do all they can at that. Mr.
E. H. Wescott, of Plattsmouth, was
present and delivered a very able
and interesting talk along the lines
of the good work being done by the
"Y" in th army. Hilt has placed his
whole heart and soul in the Y. M. C.
A. work in this great war, firmly be
lieving it to be one of the funda
mental principles upon which this
great struggle will be won, and too
much work cannot be done along
these lines. His talk was well re
ceived by all. Mrs. Wescott favor
ed the audience with vocal selections,
also Mr. Don York, and Miss Cald
well violin selections, and Mrs. Wm.
Baird in interesting readings, made
up the evenings entertainment, af
ter which donations for the "Y"
benefit were received, raising al
most $200.00 at this meeting. Mr.
W. G. Boedeker was chosen Precinct
Chairman at the Weeping
meeting, and at-this meetingA. L.
