IIS Strange personages confronted downtown shoppers along Main Street Friday evening, and were being seen again today as members of Prairie Players took to the streets in masquerade costumes to publicize the Tri-Arts Ball. A seven-foot brown bear (Don Torrance) strolled along the north side of Main Street, towering over his companion, Mrs. Jack Kimmitt, who displayed colorful sandwich boards and a fantastic hat. The south side of the street was patrolled by a jester in multicolored satin (Mrs. Robert Cabeen) and a second sandwich "man," Miss Cecile Smith. The sandwich boards announced the date of the ball, Nov. 2, and the masqueraders reminded passers-by that tickets are available at Carroll's and Ray's Hobby Shop; that four music groups will appear during the ball at the Custer Inn ballroom; that costumes or formals with masks must be worn; and that proceeds from the ball will benefit the Symphony Guild, Prairie Players, and the Civic Art League.

Reviews Little Theater Movement "From modest beginnings, a playhouse of national reputation developed in premises previously occupied bjr a dingy saloon in a prairie town in Illinois. It's short chapter in American theater history is important in the influence it exerted upon the entire little theater movement." Thus, Miss Eila Hiler described Galesburg's pioneering in "little theater" for members of Chapter HO of PEO meeting Thursday afternoon in the home of Mrs. Ray E. Thompson Jr., 1456 N. Prairie St. Gleaning material from a number of sources including a book by William Grandgeorgie on the theater of Galesburg from 1915 to 1917, a scrapbook of Galesburg in the public library and a 95-page report on the movement by Jess Crafton, a pioneer in the theater in Galesburg, Miss Hiler recalled the location of the old theater and opera house mentioning that the courtroom was on the third floor. The building burned in 1883. Later the Auditorium was built on North Broad Street. Although history on the group is scarce, many interesting memories of theater and play productions were recalled including activities of the O. T. Johnson Players between the years, 1910 and 1915. Mrs. R. B. Eyre, president, conducted the business meeting. The dessert luncheon for which Mrs. J. K. Erffmeyer was co-hostess, was served from a table decorated with a centerpiece of fruit and nuts.

MAIN executive Secretary Speahb to dorpud Clkn&ti JP ^^A Christians today have many challenges or problems which need solution through group participation rather than as an Individual task, declared Larry Matthews, addressing Corpus Christ! High School Parent-Teacher Association members at the meeting Thursday evening in the Youth Center. Mr. Matthews, executive sec* retary of the Peoria Diocesan Council of Catholic Men, spoke on "What Can the Lay Person Do" to solve some of the difficulties encountered in our complex society. Three areas for lay action were listed by the speaker as Catholic-Protestant relations, Inter-racial relations and the shortage of religious vocations. Noting the "new dimension" in Catholic-Protestant relationship at the Ecumenical council the secretary urged a community attempt to make this feeling of cooperation a concrete reality by bringing it to the parish level. The inter - racial relations problem is a more immediate one than the previously mentioned challenge, said Mr. Matthews. Possibilities of action in this field are unlimited at this time with the need to change prejudices on the part of both races. The speaker urged self-education of the community as the first solution to the challenge with the application of Christian ideals as a necessity. Home visitation on the part of both parties might aid in the solution of this problem. A tremendous lag in the number of religious vocations was noted by Mr. Matthews. In 1970 the number of lay teachers in parochial schools will double due to the lack of vocations in the religious life. Parental objection was cited by the speaker as one of the main obstacles for young people interested in the religious life. In closing Mr. Matthews urged all Christians to read in order to develop an understanding of the problems involved, and then to unite in the Apostolate Lay Movement to seek a solution. The business meeting presided over by Ted Grothe, president, preceded the program. During this period Rev. Richard Covenant Women Have Program In Harvest Theme "Harvest Festival" was the theme at the meeting of Covenant Women in the fellowship hall on Thursday evening.
