Daughters Of Veterans Act As Hostesses; Boys Attend Vine Theatre--Rev. Miller Makes Stirring Address--Men Enlist For Cause of Humanity Without Thought Of Self Says Speaker--As guests of the Daughters of Veterans, the members of Battery E highly enjoyed the lawn fete given in their honor on the public square Tuesday evening. There was much sinking of hearts early in the evening over the threatening aspect of the sky, which gave every indication of rain, but happily this passed over and the boys gathered at the long table placed on the grass and illuminated by strings of electric lights. After the men had been served with ice cream and cake, Rev. Hilas H. Miller and First Lieutenant Headlington gave short addresses and the battery then marched to the Vine theatre to see a special show as the guests of Fred Harris, manager of the theatre.
