It is planned to erect a building that will be'of general service to all members of the community, whether residing in or out of .the town of Whittemore. ' " The proposed building would include adequate club room for members of the Legion, and a place where they can hold meeting and conduct regular programs. An auditorium is planned of sufficient size to meet the requirement of the community. This would make available a place where meetings could be held, and motion pictures could be shown and whore other civic of community functions could be conducted. In the basement a bowling alley is planned. It is expected to house the Whittemore public library, recognized as one of the best in the country for a small town. If sufficient funds ore made' available there will be provision for a city hall to be leased to the council (or the regular condiict of the town's business. ''In a word the contemplated building would be planned and deVls&d to hieet all of the needs of; the entire community, provided Only, that sufficient funds are % made available lor that purpdsc, ' : '-, It is generally .known that the town council has, had under consideration for sbrrte time the construction of a town hall.- HoWcvcr, With all other requirements such as water supply .; and' extension, sewer extension, strfcct maihlenr ance, the tax levies are';too small lo accomplish much,.* in the Way of a public buildfni? program. ' To finance thi§ 'proposed project the* Legion expects to solicit the fund 1 ? Irom the members of the community a^ large. Small subscriptions \yjll bo accepted as donations, but for surr)s r of '$50 or over there will be issiied a c£fl ficate of indebtedness 'payli$ upon call with intfercs't at 3 p«- c«nt, The boys figure with.soUnld mariagement,.the building should be erected upon a self liquidating basis ahd the darning of ,<fhe building devoted to repayment lo the donors of their money over* a period of years with interest.- . While no one can predict the future, we do know that there, is a definite nccrl for such a builtP ing -and it can 'be handled so as to render .a maximum service to the community and at the »^nte time .pay for .itsplf With careful management. • ( It is also well, recognised now (ho lino that once existed th^ toWn a,nd the coun- and. automobiles A furm"! 4 with his car a as close to town as the person who livc^ *hfee bjofifts from mam stteet, and ai! all members of this rommunitv n*>ed sfioh tation This Machine Did The Job .-•'- • «• *^ Fined For Drunken DrMtig ....-• f .
