Friday night, October 27th. the
ghosts held a hallowe’en party at the
church under the auspices of the Sun
day school class of Mrs. A. J. Johnson.
It was a spooky place for the first
hour. During that period newcomers
were initiated into the mysteries of
“spookdom” and identifications were
the order. Appropriate contests were
enjoyed, officers were elected and a
fine lunch served and somehow the '
preacher got two pieces of chicken.
We stood the ordeal and went home
with nerves In good roder. It was a
Superintendent A. J. Johnson was
elated over the fact that v.c had "4
at Sunday school last Sunday break
ing all records. Offering was nearly
$10. Looks bad for the preacher. Av
erage attendance for October was 255. j
Such a record speaks of a deep inter
est on the part of our people. No body
is happier than the pastor. Our total
attendance in Loup City last Sunday
was over 1.000. We had a full house
at Wiggle Creek. Six auto loads went
out from Loup City. That was fine.
It is a pleasure to preach to the folks
out there. They had new song books
last Sunday which were enjoyed. They
had abount 80 at Sunday school. Mrs.
Homer Hughes is the superintendent.
The temperance rally in the school
house at Wiggle Creek Monday night
was a live one. It was held in the new
school house, the finest country school
we ever were in. It reflects great
credit upon the live folks out there.
The speeches of J. W. Long and Rev.
Steen were of a high order and just
as good or better than imported tal
ent has been given us.

Kennedy stands for a staple form of
prosperity for Nebraska. Kennedv
stands for efficiency and service to
