There was a good program, however, Including music by the F. B. orchestra, a talk by J. H. Jensen, former representative, some movies, some singing, a dance put on by the Union township Four-H girls, and a talk in favor of organizing a club at Bancroft given by Mary Mescher. Edw. Droessler, Ramsey township F." B. president, spoke o£ the "farmers' holiday association," which Is sponsored at Bancroft by such men as H. J. Presthus, president of the Bancroft Farmers' Union, and Robert Elchenberger. Mr. Droessler said these men were present to explain the association to persons interested. The association Is now having pledges signed. The signers agree not to buy or sell from the time a strike Is called till prices of farm products have been benefit-) ted. The orchestra was made up of Mrs. 'Ray Miller, leader; A.
