ELKS GIVE SEND OFF TO GENTRY BROS.
As a farewell send off to the Gentry Bros. the Elks held a social session
following the show at eleven o'clock last night which was largely attended
by the members and much enjoyed by all. The Gentry boy's [sic] were all
present together with members of their executive staff and band. Exalted
Ruler Joseph Barclay was toastmaster and called for speeches from Judge
Miers, Atty. Batman and Postmaster Bradfute, all of whom responded, in a
happy manner, reciting the achievements of the Gentry's and expressing pride
that home citizens generally take in the show. H. B. and Frank Gentry each
responded feelingly, telling of their start and rise to the present time.
After the meeting refreshments were served and the special train left with
the show for Bedford.
