THE DIXON SHEET METAL CO. Rear Stafford Block. Lethbridge, Alts. NOW TAKE SHAPE The whole scheme for Chautauqua week was discussed at a general meeting of the committees held in the board of trade rooms last evening, 'when considerable more enthusiasm was displayed and plans gotten well under way. The chief problem discussed was that of entertainment and of billeting the large number of visitors that are expected in the city during that week. A specJil entertainment committee was appointed'whose duty it will be to extend courtesies of hospitality to the noted artists who will visit the city with the Chautauqua. This committee includes Mayor Hardie, president board of trade, president civic club, president Red Cross, president Muth-esla club, president Chinook club, regents of the�t\vo chapters I. O. D. E., and Messrs. Layton, Brymner and Hughes, of the musical festival committee. , The matter of billeting visitors from outside points was left in the hands of the entertainment committee of the board of trade. - The matter of eating accommodation was also thoroughly discussed, it being realized that accommodation was not sufficient to handle any large crowds, unless special provision was made. It was announced that the Red Cross planned to erect a tent where afternoon tea would be served during the Chautauqua week. Friday of this week was decided upon as "ticket day" when extra effort will be made to dispose of the 550 guaranteed season tickets. TicketB will be on sale at the Red Cross Drug Store, Hedley's drug store and Htg-Inhotham's Drug Store, In addition to the office of W. J. Lloyd, chairman of the ticket committee, in the Sherlock block. All those from outside points contemplating purchasing season tickets should do so as early as possible i in order to give the billeting committee some idea of how many visitors there will be in town during that *eek.'
