Forty Attend Duck Dinner Sen, Spencer Guest of Honor at Hotel Henry More than forty local citizens were guests of the Diamond Cafe Tuesday night at the establishments annual duck dinner in the dinning room of the Hotel Henry. Senator Lloyd Spencer, who is home from Washington to spend the Christinas holidays, was the guest of honor and the principal speaker. Roy Anderson acted as master of ceremonies. The dinner, which has developed into an annual affair, was started by Ralph Bailey and Buck Powers, owners of the cafe. Good Rations Napoleon fed all captured soldiers such excellent food that many of them preferred to remain with him after war rather than return to their own county's meage ations. Mwuy of them j willingly surendered to get the good food offered, SPG Employes Donate Work Patriotic Group to Give Government Days Work Major Werner C, Strccker, Area Engineer, Southwestern Proving Ground, Wednesday announces that while it has long been known and evidenced by actual achievement that the employes of W. E. Callahan Construction Company engaged in the performance-of constructing the Southwestern Proving Ground at Hope, Arkansas, have been a conscientious, patriotic, loyal group of workers. It is inspiring to note that this fact has been so forceably punctuated by in-? illation on the part of employes of the Electrical Department, Electricians, Technicians, and helpers of a movement whereby they will donate to the cause of the defense program, through patriotic devotion, a full day of their work, without reference to any remuneration whatsoever. This in no small way expresses their patriotism and reflects deeply the unity and loyalty of these men to the greatest government on earth. Colonel D. C. Cabell, Commanding Officer, has expressed willingness of the government to accept such patriotic contribution of their services in the very near future. Certainly actions like these coming from Christian workers of a Christian nation at Christmas time are expressive of the principals and rights as believed in by all and for which our government stands.
