May Establish An Out-of-Door School Here In Near Future FAMOUS BAND TO PLAY IN CITY FOR SPRING FESTIVAL Fine Boxing Card Staged In Sarasota Sarasota got its first taste of boxing this season Thursday evening at the Machinery Hall, Sarasota County Fair grounds. The fans are yelling for more. Staged under the auspices of the American Legion with George London directing, it was one of the peppiest boxing cards ever turned loose in South Florida. Two knock-outs featured the evening’s entertainment. The next bouts will be staged Thanksgiving night, according to London, who plans to schedule matches every two weeks throughout the season. Plans are well under way for the establishing of an out door school in Venice. Mrs. Frank Warren has donated the use of her yard for the school and there are already 11 parents who have signified their intention of sending their children there as soon as the school is an accomplished' fact. Mrs, Warren and Mrs. Fred Albee are both active workers for this project. They are consulting with foremost authorities on the subject of out door schools, and expect to have it run according to the most modern methods. The length of the session has not yet been decided upon, but it will probably be from about nine to three, with an hour at noon for lunch. A light lunch will also be served in the middle of the morning. A school of this sort will be of inestimable value to Venice, and the plan is receiving the support of the leading Venice citizens. “Advertising is the life of trade.” —Coolidge.

He is president of the First Na-' tional Bank of Berwyn in Chicago and is a director in several other successful business organizations. His enthusiasm over Venice was not offhand. He spoke as a shrewd business man. Makes Records Thousands have heard Kryl’s phonographic records. Florida this winter will have the pleasure of hearing the symphonic band at its best. Daytona Beach will be host to Kryl until March when the director will bring his players here for the festival.
