Rotary Members ‘Dig In’ To Provide Shuffle Board Court Passers by the court house Tuesday afternoon were startled by sounds of hysterical laughter mingled with the strains of “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad,” and shouts for a non-existent wa ter-boy. The shuffle-board court was in process of construction. “Isn’t'it dreadful the way they make those convicts work. Look, they don’t even give them uni forms as we do up North,” ob served one fair visitor, hurrying on after a hasty glance at the tell-tale visages of Key West's Rotarians as they wrestled with the deerepit wheelbarrows, or dis played an instinctive abhorrence of pick-axes while they tried to pry boulders out of the ground with long-handled shovels. All the Rotarians who could get there were sit* the job of provid ing a recreation aerfter for Key West people- and people lucky enough to be visiting Key West, and while high officials, clergy men, and executives loaded wheel barrows and Mbled dirt away. Lunch-Room Projects Are Operating Very Successfully "The lunch-mom projects atj the Division Street and Harris grammar schools have been very successful”, Rev.

One hundred and twenty pupils have been fed daily at the Harris School and 110 at the Division' Street school since October 26, he continued. Most of the meals are given free of charge to chil-j dren of certified relief but there are many other pupils who buy their weekly ticket. Ail •at together and there is no cm-; harassment among them. A varied menu is prepared for the students, and has been com mended by a great number of parents. This is the first year that the lunch-room project has been sue-! ceaafully operated. There was anj attempt to get it organised last year but after a short period of operation it fell through. The, present project was begun Octo-j her 26.

Key West Folk Turn Out In Observance Of Armistice Day APPLES DISTRIBUTED Thirty thousand pounds of ap ples were given to certified re lief clients by C. Nestor Recio, Supervisor of the Commodity Dis trict Division, during yesterday. Starting at eight o’clock in the morning, the distribution was not completed until three o’clock in the afternoon. Distribution was from the Commodity Room at the corner of Simonton and Angela streets. ithey were envisioning the tomor ; row when the discs would go , hurtling down the courts, and uqjier the shadow of the palms, chessmen and checkers would be deployed across their mimic battle fields. Proving that Key Westers still had plenty of push were W. W. Demeritt, chauffering a wheel barrow, the Rev. Joe Tolle busily fulfilling the injunction to gath er up the stones; Charles E. Smith, also chauffering, and Charles Taylor, manipulating a shovel in the manner prescribed by Mrs. Emily Post; the army and navy in the persons of Lt. John Faigle and Major Mac Mullen led the attack. Virtue was its own reward when all hands were ordered to knock off and look at the pretty birdie while they had their pic ture taken so that through all the coming ages there will be documentary evidence that the Key West Rotary Club was a most industrious lot in this par ticular effort. The School Board has installed | permanent equipment at the lunch' rooms. NY A students made the necessary tables sinks, piping, with the School Board furnishing equipment. The P.-T. A. is grateful to the Florida Public Utilities and Gas Cos., which donated two stoves, ; Thompson’s lee Company, which added two iceboxes, and the Key West Electric Company, which I sent an electric icebox. The WPA has been giving part of the food, and furnishing three helpers for each school, but a growing number of local *ner chants, clubs, lodges and in dividuals are doing their share to make the project possible. Any one wishing to make donations are ! requested to get in touch with the principal or any of the P.-T. A. ! members of either school. Rev. Tolle wishes to thank all those actively working in the proj jact. but he especially wishes to I recognise the splendid services of . Mrs. S. A. Petersen and Mrs. Mer *vin Russell.

Simultaneously with the firing of the volleys at Fleming and Du val. a memorial salute was fired at the naval station. Following the exercises, Arthur .

What he said was, that if traffic warrants it, there would be a reduction in ferry rates. It must be remembered that operation of the ferries with shorter runs, did not mean that expenses would be cut down on ferry operations. These would re main the same, and if a deficit was created the county was in no position to take on this addeu burden of expense. Finally it was decided that the ferry committee would on Mon day evening 8 o’clock, meet with the committee from the bridge commission in the court house ami in an executive session come to an equitable agreemet on rates.
