Preliminary steps looking to the organization of a Kiwanis club in Fairmount were taken Thursday night' at a meeting of some forty business and professional men held in the banquet room in the Masonic temple, the arrangements for the meeting had be?n rather hurriedly made after word had been received from Marion that r.ill Mallard, state organizer for the Kiwanis, could be in Fairmount that evening, and that if arrangements for a meeting could be made he would be accompanied by Lewis DeWolf, president of the Marion Ki wanis, and Dr. Horace Gear and Walter B. Stephenson, and "Chick" Hut-chins, 'Marion Kiwanians. As many of the business and professional men as could be seen or notified in the short space of time were asked to attend the meeting, which was to have banquet features attached, in the way of a fried chicken dinner, and the Mas onic bnnquet room was secured for the occasion. Forty or more responded to the invitation, and the meeting developed more real enthusiasm and get-togeth- " nnism" took charge of the meeting " V i r-li nroc iA,-kA r,-i v V,. T nfn T?iK oie. 1 Mallard is not onl a booster. but considerable of a singer, and he lead the crowd in singing some of the Kiwanian songs, from the Kiwanian song books one of which was at each plate. It proved to ba a delightful surprise how many good voices were in that crowd, and the singing brought the spirit of good-fellowship out of every fellow there until he was ready to concede that his dinner companion was one of the best fellows he ever met. During the progress of the dinner, and there was a bountiful supply of mighty good fried chicken served by Ralph Moon, of the Moon Eat Shop, the enthusiasm ran high, so that bofore the conclusion of the feed every one was converted into a real Kiwanian booster. The Kiwanian handshake was given when each diner introduced by his first name his companion sitting on his right, and then the Marion bunch began talking. Stephenson talked. Gear talked, Hutchins talked, and then Dewolf told what Kiwanis had done for Marion, and how through the Kiwanians Marion was being cemented together in a real working organi zation for the upbuilding of the town and for everything that meant pros perity and progress. By the organization of a Kiwanis club Fairmount, he said, had an opportunity to start a forward movement that would make Marion sit up and take notice, and not only that but every other town in the state, for Fairmount would have the distinguished honor of being the smal lest city in the state, if not in the country, with a Kiwaniclub. Mal lard went into detail regarding the national Kiwanis organzation and also explained the method of procedure for the orgnization of a local Kiwanis. At each plate was a blank application for membership, and when these had been gathered up it was found that some thirty had been signed. Fifty charter members are required before a charter will be granted, and it was unanimous vote of those present that the fifty be secured and secured at once, putting Fairmount in big, big letters on the Kiwanis map. Taking necessary preliminary steps for the organization of the club temporary officers were elected as follows: President, Lafe Ribble; vice president. Will Parrill; secretary, Earl Morris; treasurer, Victor A. Selby. Temporary trustees were elected as follows: R. A. Morris, Dr. C. N. Brown, Wayne V. Fowler, L. E. Nolder, Kenneth Hol-lings worth, E. H. Lafler and Palmer Ice. . During the evening short talks were made by most of. the local men pres- , ent all expressing themselves as hear- -tily in sympathy with the movement. Another meeting will be held during (Continued cn Pae Four) I v J . . Quaker discipline, will be the first one that has taken place in that church for j fifty years, it is said.
