Farnam Will Celebrate Armistice Day Nov. 11


Again a year has rolled around and we are called upon to do homage to our lads in khaki. As Armistice Day dawns upon us, there rushes to our minds, memories both sad and sweet, of those gallant men who offered all and those who gave all. Blood shed upon battle fields has brought to this nation her freedom of today, and on Wednesday Nov 11 Farnam will pause in her routing of life and rightly and justly honor her Soldiers True.

The program, at the Community hall will consist of patriotic musical numbers, reading and address, which will begin at 11 o’clock. Dinner from 12 to 1:30. 1:30—dedication of the German Gun, a war trophy recently awarded to the local Legion boys; 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. the various sports will be held.

You who have a large family, have a roll call early and bring them all to Farnam, Grandpa’s try your luck at driving a car, and don’t forget to drag “old lizzy” out of the junk pile and bring her to Farnam. You who are tall, stretch a mile or two and be taller.

Races for the kiddies, and a pig catching contest, the winner gets the pig. Boys you had better go out in Dad’s hog lot and practice awhile.

Read the complete program of the day on another page of this paper. Arrangements are being made to run a picture show in the afternoon for those who do not care to attend the football game.
