Phone 2 Licensed Pharmacist in Charge STAMP OUT THE WAR WITH THRIFT STAMPS Mr. Thompson GRAND THEATRE WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20tb Dear Sir:—I wish to thank you for your generosity in sending me the paper. You don't realize how the boys in khaki appreciate the home news. As you will see by this letter I have moved from Waco. Texas, to this camp. We start work at our trades in a few days. Just at present we are getting settled and cleaned up. We have fine barracks here—all finished in white, inside and out, and is kept clean at all times. It is a great change for us to get in beds, as we have been sleeping on canvas cots in tents all the time, and you know how good the spring is in tight canvas. There are only about 3,000 men in this camp. They keep coming and going all the time. There was only three Squadrons sent here from McArthur. All the rest were sent to Garden City and then across, but it won't be long before this bunch goes over. We get six weeks schooling here and it sure is schooling, as we are at it from 5:30 a. m. until 9:30 p. m. The night classes are from 7:30 until 9:15, that is, when we get the theory of the work, and during the day we get the actual work on the aeroplanes. As this is a service Squadron, we will probably be near the front lines to help in the crippled planes and autos, as our course of instructions cover automobiles of all makes, and also motorcycles. They certainly have a bunch of both. Officer's Tan The new tint in parchment paper 50c. Easter Greetings box papers. A for men. Price First showing of these now ready.

At eight o'clock in the evening of March 20, 1918, at the Grand Theatre, the curtain will rise on Westfield's first attempt at home talent in the large, new theatre. Prices 50c, 75c, $1, $1.25, $1.50 The big 8-act vaudeville show, given under the supervision of the Entertainment Committee of the Red Cross, is the biggest theatrical production ever undertaken by Westfieid home talent. This show was not gotten up over night, but the several committees in charge of the several acts have been hard at work rehearsing for the past three months. Each act is finished in the minutest detail. Candy Tempoint Pens Iceland Moss Squares, The same old Boston safety with a new name, bec'ause of change in makers . All sizes, from $2.50 up.

Many new colors not in other makes. Our stock has just been renewed. Price 10c a cake, enough for one pound of goods. The first act is an extremely clever portrayal of life in sunny Italy, and brings us in close touch with that nation, whose music is so impulsive and whose sentiment is so profound and with whom we have locked arms in the great worldstruggle for liberty.

Never used—bargain for some one. The third act, which is given over tothe orchestra, which is excellent throughout the show from beginning to end, is especially brilliant in this act. Am'sorry I can't get a furlough while so n*ar home, but have been told by the lieutenant that none will be given now or later, so guess I'll have to wait till the war jjp oyer before I see Westfield again.

It -i* short, snappy and full of action. The girl's chorus in the fifth act is a rare musical treat. The large number of well-trained voices and excellent selection of music makes this act one of the best. Yours truly, William T. Richardson, 257th Aero Squadron. Fairfield, Ohio. EASTER ST To combine mystery and comedy in a 20-minute act requires the artist's touch. This is done in the sixth act, "The Egyptian Sketch." Egypt with all her mysteries and a touch of up- to-date comedy, keeps the audience on the edge of its chairs for the full 20 minutes. Mew Enterprise. COMING Westfield has now a chance to be on the map in a new way. Messrs. J. W. Home and C. F. Hummel, of Erie, Pa., were in town last week trying to interest our capitalists in establishing a first class laundry at this place. Their plan is to establish a chain of ten laundries, of which the Westfield plant shall be one. Mr. Hummel says the plant here is a No. 1 plant, and if our citizens will give them a reasonable amount of encouragement he will establish a laundry here, and turn out work that any one may feel proud of. Their plan of starting the plant is a practical one, as they do not ask any great amount of capital at the start, so as to show to the people that they are practical men and mean business. It is to be hoped that their efforts may be success* ful, as it will add another industry and give quite a number of people steady employment at good wages. Are You Ready? 1 — -t. Mile. Pavaloinskia, in her soft shoe dance, comic song and up-to date costume is worth the price of admission. fF you have been pay* ing around $21 and $25 in the past, take a look at Styleplus before you pay more. Easter Sunday has come to be , The finale is a fitting climax to the bill. From the beginning the audience is graduiliy worked up to the very pinnacle of patriotic pride. The act, which is thirty minutes long, might be likened to the strains of a gigantic orchestra, commencing with the slenderest no es and gradually broadening and deepening until the full burst of martial music fairly overwhelms the audience. This is a patriotic living picture, 30 minutes in the making, every minute fraught with the keenest desire to throw your hat in the air and hurrah for Uncle Sam. something of a clothes parade.
