Picnic Is Success. A crowd estimated as high as 2500 people attended the Santa Fe picnic at Soden's grove Wednesday, frolicked and. visited with their neighbors, and returned to their homes early Wednesday morning. Many declared the Big Four Brotherhoods' picnic one of the best they ever attended. Visitors from the eastern, western and central divisions of the Santa Fe were kept busy from their arrival at 10 o'clock Wednesday morning until the last strain of the dance music died away at midnight Wednesday night. Two trainloads of the picnickers who arrived in Emporia at 10 o'clock tonned a nucleus for the picnic and every train arriving in Em- porift added to the crowd?. At 2 o'clock Emporia business houses closed their doors and Emporians went down to Soden's, listened to President Storey's talk, and became better acquainted with the railroad men. Special trams coining from the east and the west were met at the Santa Fe depot by approximately 150 cars donated by the Emporia Chamber of Commerce. The pic- u's were loaded in and were 'alien for a tour of Emporia before tne picnic started. The first event at the grove was the flag raising ceremony by the American Legion and the Emporia municipal band.
