Proceeds From Showing of Big Picture to be Used as Starter of Fund for Community Projects The Kiwanis club Wednesday completed the details of an arrangement with Manager Ferguson of the Royal Theatre, whereby the club takes over the house for the nights of Wednesday and Thursday, March 1 and 2, and will put on one of the latest pictures and one of the big ones, which has not yet been seen ih either Mhrion or any near-by city, these nights being benefit nights for the club. The proceeds from these two nights the club will put into a fund which it will create, for use solely for community interests. It has been suggested, and is being favorably considered by the club that this fund be set aside toward a fund to be used at the proper time toward securingi for Fairmount either a public park, suited for a public recreation place, as well as a gathering place for family reunions, out-door gatherings of any kind, as well as ultimately having the park equipped with a base- ball diamond where the boys of the town may have a place to play at any time, and also with the long talked of municipal swimming pool.
