Palmer Ice, s-jargent at arms, had gone to Clyde Lewis to collect the admission ft?, it being charged that Clyde had "crawled urdtv the op.i.-vass" evading payment. Lewis indignantly denied the charge, and ice called on A. S. Roberts to corrob( rate him. Roberts claimed he had peen Lewis slip past the doorkeeper; Lewis denied the assertion, and gave his accuser to understand, that while they had hertofore been friends, he in - miii cfon.i f,. n,.tl-,;.ir f .rt and if that was the sort of friend Roberts was he wanted none of his friendship. Roberts came back with equal vigor and the quarrel had just reached its height wlfen President Ribble ordered the two expelled from the room, to settle their differences man to man outside. The two were taken out and soon returned each with torn clothing and blackened eyes, but Roberts had the money and Lewis admitted defeat. The stunt "took", and while the two gentlemen ate their dinner in torn clothing and with black ened eyes, the merriment from then on waxed warm. Dr. L. D. Holliday acted as toast- master of the evening, and did the job as only a real health officer can do things of that sor. Stones were told, Wayne Fowler'taking first prize and Attorney Chas. Parker second for the best imp'romptu story; Rev. Sweeney was accused of being accountable for silverware the ladies of the church had been missing, and the goods were found on him, while Will Parrill barely managed to clear himself of the charge of having slipped the spoons into the Reverend gentleman's pocket. Kiwanis songs 'were sung with Prof. Otto Hamilton "choirmeister," and a "good time was had by all." After the fun had spent its force. Toastmaster Holliday introduced Ser geant Downajan, of Anderson, who has just returned from France and Belgium, where he had been sent Dy the government to receive decorations from the King of Belgium and the President of France, for gallant service during the war, he having participated in many of the hardest battles of the war, and having lone handed captured a German machine gun nest killing two of the Germans and bringing in the other ten, with their gun. Sergant Downajan gave an interesting account of his experiences, and then the speaker of the evening, Hon. Oswald D. Ryan, of Anderson, spoke on the subject of "Americanism." His talk was intensely patriotic, eloquently showing the need today for patriotism in peace to be as urgent as patriotism in time of war. The evening closed with the "KiwaT nis handshake" and all voting the occasion to have been one of the most ibers of the Board of Directors of the1;,.;,,,, included fTmrlpa and Joe Pic- . .
