The Greens had arranged what turned out to be one of the finest programs staged in this section for some time and the only thing to mar a perfectly grand afternoon for the staunch Bremen fans was the defeat which the Greys dished out in the last stanza. As scheduled our garment factory got into action Monday morning and is rapidly assuming the aspects of a modest manufacturing plant of efficiency and enterprise. The room is large, well ventilated, well lighted and the whole arrangement strikes one as having been conceived not only with an eye to efficiency but with due consideration for the comfort and health of the personnel of the factory. Eleven women and girls are already started in the work and more will be added from time to time as the earlier ones attain a degree of proficiency. Mr. Boyer is highly pleased to find that several of those now helping have had experience that is of great assistance in training the unskilled hands.

Mr. Felter hastened to the car to help the occupants and Mr. Hoffer, arrived while other men from the Harmon Garage, on the comer opposite, also came.
