These two societies are being organized now for the benefit of pupils and school in general.

*Mayor of Deloit Makes Good - Mayor O. W. Wier, of Deloit, has demonstrated that he will not tolerate any rowdyism and started in Saturday night to make a house cleaning.

It is said that a young man who has been making his home in Denison and near by territory was among the bunch and after being confined for a time, decided the jail could not hold him. Acting upon the aforesaid brainstorm, he broke out of the close confinement and came to a place near Denison where he was apprehended the next day and returned to Deloit for trial. He was taken before mayor Wier and after some little parley, the mayor though $100 would about pay for the repairs and imposed that amount together with the costs of the trial. He also thought the young man had been carrying too much of a load and taxed him an extra $10 for being intoxicated. Others of the party made up the purse that brought the amount up to a little better than $140.00. Mayor Wier says everybody is welcome to come to Deloit at all times but that they must preserve order.

Denison Review, Wednesday, July 25, 1917
*The Deloit branch of the Denison's chapter of the American Red Cross society meets each Wednesday and Friday and all members are urgently requested to be present or to help sew at home. If you have one spark of patriotism or love for your best young men who are called upon to spend their life blood for your freedoms you cannot refrain from aiding in some capacity. If you cannot sew, help your neighbor while she sews or encourage one to be present, or pull basting threads, or thread needles or run small errands; there are countless ways of helping, but help. This work is very much needed at present and we do not want our boys to go to foreign lands and actually need and suffer for lack of garments or medicines because some American ladies were to selfishly busy giving pink teas or gossiping about their neighbors to lend a helping hand. We all must do our part in some way. Our room is quite small and we have to carry our machines to and fro for work and it is no warmer there than other places, but you will be heartily welcomed and better satisfied with yourself to know that you have helped a little. Please come and bring your friends. The Denison young ladies are helping along this line by giving a high class entertainment, followed by a dance at the Midway Heights on Thursday evening of this week to which everyone is invited.
*Ray Winans of Percival, Ia. spent Sunday with his father and sister. In the evening he was taken to the train at Denison by Mr. and Mrs. Merle Myers.
*Mr. and Mrs. Jas. McKim have departed for a few days' outing at Lake Okoboji, Iowa.
*Elder Chas. Harp is holding a series of tent meetings at Fort Dodge and was called upon to preach the funeral sermon of the little nine year old girl of Mr. and Mrs. Whited near Dow City on Sunday afternoon. He filled the pulpit morning and evening at the L. D. S. church, returning Monday noon to his field of labor.

Mrs. Worley set forth an abundance of dainties suitable to childish palates, after which Mr. Worley took them auto riding on the installment plan. Many little tokens were given Lyle in fond remembrance of the occasion.
