As those who have listened to past unditions of Sioga can testify. This season ‘Sloga leaves the field of strictlv vocal music, and has entered the instrumen- tal field with a tamburitza or- chestra, under the direction of Matthew Blazin.

A compromise agreement was made between those who wished to stay open every night and those wishing to close at 7 P. M., except Satur- days, when it was agreed to open Monday, Friday and Sat- urday nights and close at 7 P. M., on other evenings of the week.

In any -event, there is «no doubt that they will be able to place the citizens of Spanish origin in a_ position where they will‘ be able to demand recognition for. their nationalities. Time passed all to quickly. ‘ht not before the members and guests enjoyed a series of games. opened by the editor of the Herald and cloned bv !Mrs. M. Golen. Mrs. J.

The same boy, or man, who 'driv'e ‘30 or 40 miles and pay an entry fee of 40c without a tquibble, when the team is playing ‘away from home, will ‘ither jump the fence, set mtside in his auto, or stay away entirely when a game is =taged [in the local stadium.
