KIWANIS CLUB WORK TO START HERE AT ONCE

       Exemplifying the speed and efficiency of sister clubs everywhere,
the Athens Kiwanis Club got down to business Friday night, (June 10, 1921)
in spite of the heat, and adopted the uniform by-laws prescribed by the
international body, and elected officers.
       The results of the election follows: president, John R. Lostro;
vice-president, Merrill Kerr; treasurer, Clarence H. Horn; seven
additional directors were Milton D. Hughs, Judge H. T. Phillips, Carl Beasley, Charles E. Cameron, Dr. Lloyd C. Strecker, Emmett Cotton and Ned Wolfe.  The board appointed a secretary, (Charles T. Moore) subject to his
acceptance, and these eleven men will be the governing body of the Athens
Kiwanis Club during the first six months of its adventuresome career.
       The university was honored by the election of Prof. Thomas N.
Hoover as the district trustee.  Mr. Hoover will represent the local club
twice a year at the district conferences.  The semi-annual conference of
district officers makes the Kiwanis district laws.  This conference was
held at Lima the last time and at Toledo the meeting prior to that.
Inasmuch as the Chamber of Commerce forum has adjourned for the summer,
and arrangements are under way to use the Chamber's delightfully cool and
spacious rooms; Wednesday was selected as the meeting day.
       President Lostro reported a meeting with the district governor, Al
Miller, at Toledo this week; Miller seemed elated at the fast time made in
assembling the club here.  The club voted to erect "slogan" signs at all
the principal entrances to the city, and especially at the Union Depot.
These signs will bear a slogan, something like this:  "Athens, the City
Beautiful."  Action will be taken on this piece of work at once.  The
Athens Kiwanis Club is a throbbing reality with its 50 charter members,
and the eyes of Athens will have to live up to Kiwanis traditions and they
are reported to encompass constructive achievements.
       The meeting was conducted by the Field Representative, C. F.
Lender, who bade adieu to the club Friday night.  From now on the club
will be coached by the International Extension Department in Chicago.
