Last Friday evening a committee of Gentlemen from Athens, consisting of Messrs. J. J. Faulk, C. H. Coleman, and Brad Bartlett, visiting Malakoff in the interest of the Y.M.C.A. war fund. Senator Faulk in a short address to a number of our citizens briefly explained the objective of the movement, and a committee of five, consisting of Roy I. Weir, Hubert W. Barton, George B. Thompson, Dr. W. W. Beach and J. K. Derden were selected to solicit funds for this caused.
The gentlemen then left for Trinidad on a similar mission and from there went to Eustace to organize the movement at those places.
Up to the time of going to press, the committee had raised the sum of $69.75.
