TOWN HISTORICAL SOCIETY MEETS AT LAKELAND LAKELAND, , Feb. 7. (Tribune News Service.) Members of the Florida Historical society closed one of the best meetings in their 67 years of existence here this afternoon after an all-day session at Southern college. One of the big features of the day was the luncheon held at social hall, with A. J. Hanna as toastmaster. The luncheon was the bright social spot in a series of lectures and papers given by some of the most able workers in the state. Frederick T. Davis of Jacksonville, read a highly interesting paper on "Neglected Phases of Florida History." Mrs. Minnie Moore Wilson, of Kissimmee, also . contributed one of the feature talks, "The Seminole Indians." Dr. S. G. Coe, head of the history department at Southern was on the afternoon program. AFTER THE PARADE "People like parades, but they don't realize how much work is involved in staging one," Fred A. McKay, superintendent of the sanitary department said yesterday. "Besides the work the organizations do in getting their men and floats ih line, the police department is worked over time when the parade is moving. The night before the police department has to put up ropes along the streets and then take them down after the marching is over. But that isn't all. The sanitary department has a big job to clean the streets along which the parade moved. Early yesterday morning we hauled five big truckloads of newspapers that cluttered Franklin, Lafayette and Water streets. And believe me, they were loads, too. Usually, we move about one good truck-load of trash from that area each night. Y.u can see what a. job it was to sweep up all this litter and haul it out." THOSE CHURCH THIEVES "Next thing we know somebody will be stealing a pipe organ or a pulpit out of one of Tampa's churches," a city detective said yesterday. "I know they would try to steal 'em if they thought they could sell 'em and not get caught." ,-. The remark was prompted by a report to the city detective bureau that a burglar entered the First Baptist church Monday night and stole an electric fan, a few song books and other articles that happened to be loose. Several days ago the First Methodist church was broken into, and thieves got away with a typewriter and other articles. DREDGING RUINS IIOME Mrs. Anna T.
