Armistice Day, will be a
quiet one locally. The only busi

opinion that to "carry on" with no
interruption of work, would be the
most patriotic observance this year,

days is optional.
The only two events scheduled
for the day are the annual dinner
of the American Legion and the ' expected to he present, including
annual dinner meeting of the local
