F. W. IK 50 NEW HERS Fifty men were voted to membership in the James L. Xoble post No. 3, Veterans of Foreign Wars, at a post meeting Tuesday night with Bruce Crum, senior vie commander, presiding in the absence of J. Harry Shearer, commander. Judging from appearances of the success of the local drive, the national canvass will add several thousand new members to the rolls. The drive closes March 31. Budd Williams, chairman of the drive, stated that he believed that an additional 100 members would be added before that time. The new members will be initiated at the next meeting on March "Z. There are several prizes offere for members who secure the most new members. The post membership is divided into two equal divisions under Joseph Pitcher and H. O. Niekola. Under the rules, the losing division feeds the winning army and, from appearances. Pitcher's army will be given the treat. N ' A motion was passed to appoint a committee to make arrangements ! for the annual poppy sale. Com-! mander Shearer, upon returning to the city, will appoint the members of this committee and arrangements will be made in the near future. Following the meeting, a splendid entertainment program was provided. Billy MacAteer and Ken Keller played and sang several selections. Then a saxophone octet played for the veterans. Membership of the octet consisted of James Vaughn, Wilbur Beck, Budd Williams, Budd Riggs, Nick Note, Hadd Houser, Anton Hoffman and Fiore Lastort.
