Ninety-Five Commercial Club
Hustlers Spend Day in

The ninety-five men who hustled
for more Commercial club members
yesterday afternoon dragged them
selves into the club rooms at 6:30
o'clock last night, washed up their
faces and brushed their hair for the
H. O. Wilhelm, captain of the crew
that set out to drag in the 100 new
members in a single day, headed the
table and managed the evening's en

Many of the men who signed up
for membership during yesterday's

A few weeks ago Wilhelm and his
Hosts attacked the city with a view
to bringing in 100 members in a
three-day campaign. This time they
went out determined to bring in 100
in one day. The task was almost too
much for them, but they came with
a good day's kill just the same.
Now that the work of the various
teams hustling Commercial club
membership yesterday has been
checked up, it is found the committee
brought sixtv-seven membtrshins
actually in the game bag in the eve
ning of a single day's work, and that
some fifteen others promised to send
their checks in by mail at once. Others
are contingent upon this or that so
that it looks as though the 100 mark
for the single day, which was the
goal set, will probably be practically
reached when all the results of yes
terday's work are finally in.

republican spirit," "id Mr.
Howell, "but a lesson Is to be learned
from one of these campaigns. After
the heat pi the battle has passed we
settle back into an American spirit.
the campaign was a partisan one
where we chose our would-be stand
ard bearer and followed the best
fight that we could to take him to

are grown to manhood the future of
the United States will rest in you.
"We sometimes lose dignity in po
litical discussion, but when the elec
tion is over and our president is
chosen it is the duty of every patri
otic citizen, regardless of preference
or tor whom he may have worked,
to assist that president so far as it
is in his power so to do. If he then
does not measure up to your ideal,
cross swords with the party that put

The boys showed their appreciation
and republican spirit by giving Mr.
Howell three cheers, followed by
