Jrank Meat Co. Semi-Weekly "Zooms" Howdy, Folks! . . . Well, Ihc picnic has come and gone . . . and we want lo tell yon it was quite a whing-ding. Sixty-eight people were present—and all of the Frank Meat Company employes were not there, a few of the more timid ones, being afraid to compete in the contests, remaining at home . . . for fear they would be shown up. We had potato races, board sawing contests, guessing contests, baseball, etc. . . . The ice cream eating contest ended in a three- way tie, with Clarence Tucker, Colonel Hayes and Mrs. Ted Frank coming down the homestretch for a photo finish which the judges called a three-way tic. It was an honest decision. Kenny Dunbar walked off with first prize for guessing the combined weights of three Frank Meat Company butcher- cites . . . and Mrs. Sam Smith, Jr.; won the ladies' prize for board saw- L ing. Earl Harris got first prize for dart throwing, and little Donna May ' Carr won first prize in the children's potato race. Sammy Smith the Third won first prize in the babies' potato race. Sammy the Third is a true Smith, just like his grandad, Sam the First. Miss Joyce Smith, daughter of Sam the First, copped first prize for skipping to victory in the one-legged potato race, and none other than old Sam the First got third prize for guessing the weight of the butchcr- etles. As you fan see, this Smith family sure did walk oft* with the lion's share of the prizes and it has been suggested that next year they be given a handicap to compete. Baseball was one of the main attractions . . . with Joe Thompson, Fred Scheible, Lieutenant Dillard King and Eddie Worlhington starring... "Of course, there was some mighty good ball playing displayed among 'the others, and we understand that both the New York Yankees and the St. Louis Cardinals had scouts there, looking for future Mort Coopers and Bill Dickeys. Oh, yes, we almost forgot about Joe Berelta. He would have been dart throwing champion if it had not been that old Sam Smith the First beat him. .. . MEAT the people at Frank Meat Company's six busy markets. Frank's Reporter. SERVICE CLUB TO CONVENJLSOON DATE OF MEETING TO BE FIXED; OFFICER NAMED To discuss five or more topics of interest to the club women, a special meeting of North of the River Women's Service Club has been called for September 5, at 7:30 p. rn., at Klliott hall, according to Mrs. A. B. Shore, president. Lions Club meets on the usual Tuesday meeting date of the .women's service club, so there will be discussion of the possibility of changing to co-operate with this organization. If the meetings are not changed, there will be the question also of suspending the bylaws for November as the club house is a voting precinct. There is a suggestion that the election date for club officers be changed in order that the lists may be in time for publication in the federation pamphlets. With the moving of Mrs. Arnold Peters to northern California!!, and the advancement of Mrs. A. B. Shore to the post of president, a vacancy was incurred in the vice-presidency. This is to be filled at this meeting. The final matter listed for discussion is the need of a county park in the North of the River area. Clubhouse facilities also will come up for discussion probably. PROMOTED TO CORPORAL Kelmer W. Downing, son of Mrs. Julia L.

Tentative arrangements were made for a local postwar planning program in connection with the November meeting, and a Christmas party in December. A suggested questionnaire, which may be circulated by league, deals with foreign policy issues, postwar employment and price control. It opens with the challenging question "Does it matter what each voter does on election day? Did it matter what each soldier did on D-Day?" Tf circulated the questionnaire will ask voters to decide whether there is a better chance of jobs for everyone if private business has no interference from government, it gov- ernment rout nils industry, or if private business and uovrrnmcnt share the planning fur postwar jobs. A qiiostion members of the I.eacrue think voters should bo deciding is how the COM of living can best be kept from going up—by government price control, during the war only? or by government price control as long as goods are scarce, during and after the war? The National League has long been interested in the problem to tariffs, so one question on the list asks in which of the following ways voters think American workers can be most sure of steady work—by selling American goods to other countries without this country buying their goods: by selling to and buying from other countries; or by selling American goods at home onlv? >> than ever. 1 ^ Men* Bit'.
