A Few Short Notes About the Reunion By Joshua Williams At the evening service at the Presbyterian church last Sunday, when Rev. Yates preached, the long-hoped- for opportunity of hearing Dan Davis' fine voice In a quartet number, once mote, came to a Lime Springs audience. With Anna Mae Davis as accompanist, he. Hugh Morris of West Pullman, m. (another old-time Thomas' Price nod Ben Davis ST. sang two numbers. One of these, "More Than Conquerors Are was simply wonderful. 'A bad'head cold kept Dan from being able to sing at the Reunion programs--much to the disappointment of his many old friends. Evan O. Williams. Des Molnes, remarked that Lime Springs has evidently grown a whole lot since he lived here. He Judged this from the number of freight trains which could be disturbingly heard during the Reunion programs, as these trains pulled out of town. The Class of 1918--and all from quite a distance--were here for the Reunion. Frances Barlow Holgate of Bismarck. N. Mabel Roberts Markee. Mason, and Lucile Elwood of Des Molnes. The Class of 1899--Mrs. Elizabeth Owen aiid Belle Pettit--were also here both live here. There was one big advantage that the 1939 Home-coming had over the 1922 and 1927 Home-coming. There were no ball games or street sports to distract the attention of the visitors. The visitors came here to see and visit old friends, not to watch street sports, which would use up a lot of their valuable time. They sec enough ball games at their own homes And as it was, the visitors left with many visits Incomplete. And best of all, we had no street games of chance or any fakirs, such as were seen at the two former Home comings. LOCAL VALEDICTORIAN WINS READER'S DIGEST AWARD Abner A.
