If you are interested in child welfare, you will hear Judge Kelly Wednesday afternoon, September 22, at the Baptist church on "Juvenile Work." The judge is very much interested in this work and can give you facts that will make you sit up and take notice. Dr. Hill will speak at the same place on "Charity Work." If you think the doctor had a picnic last winter, come and hear him. Dr. Carstens will give us new food for thought on the social center problem. You are certainly interested in one of the three and they are all live issues before the people. Don't be a dead one. Take an active interest in the things of today. Remember the time and place. A Demorest contest will be held in the Baptist church on Wednesday evening, September, 22, at 8 o'clcok. The contestants are young people of our town and should be encouraged in this line of study. No admission.
