The bill for $40.00 presented by Mrs. Layman for rent of her piano at eight dances was presented and after slight discussion was ordered paid.

A letter was read from Miss Sadie Anderson, a nurse whom the Legion engaged to take care of Comrade JP Judkins during the worst part of his illness. the letter was in answer to Com. Schooley's request that she foreword her bill to the Legion for payment. Her reply was to the effect that she was glad to help the ex-service men in whatever way was possible and that as far as she was concerned the account was square.

The motion was made & seconded that a vote of thanks be tendered Miss Anderson by this post in return for her favor. Carried.

Communications in regard to the big meeting of Commanders & Adjutants at Des Moines to be held on Feb 12th, were read by the Adjutant. Vise Com Hulle went on to explain that because of the hurried answer required by the State Adjutant as to whether or not this Post would be represented, a meeting had been called for the post officers on the previous week to determine what delegates to send. He reported that the inability of the Post Com. & Post Adjutant to go made it necessary to press two other officers into this service and that Bert Coleman & Oliver Reno were appointed delegates.

The motion was made & seconded that these delegates keep strict tab on their expenditures for R.R. fare, board & room while away and to present their bills to the Legion upon their return - Carried.

On the call for unfinished business, the matter of a Post talent play was talked of again. A report was made by the Adj. as to what material he had gathered. The Adj. read a letter from the Lyndon, Vt. Post in answer to his inquiry as to getting the manuscript for the play "From Reveille To  Taps", which they had put on with success. Their letter appeared favorable to the Post and after considerable discussion it was decided the we await the manuscript for this play and put it on. The Adj. was instructed to write immediately to the Vt. Post for information as to probable date the m.s. would be ready and about what it would cost.

A suggestion made by V.C. Hulle that steps be taken to get a baseball team organized seemed to meet a good response, although nothing was done other than getting the names of several players.

Volunteers were asked to make up a rifle squad, this squad to take care of rifles as soon as the locker is built and rifles placed where they would be convenient. Enough names were presented and the list was given to A.D. Coleman.

A number of men questioning the right of former Army nurses being admitted to The American Legion, it was suggested that the Adj. communicate with Dept. Headquarters for information. It was thought that in case the ruling will permit, we mail application blanks to several nurses who might wish to become members of this Post.

The motion was made & seconded that we adjourn to Tues. eve, Feb 15th 1921. Carried.
