Pilsen is greatly pleased with the electric current which they have recently secured from the Abilene company. Through very liberal donations from several of the people there, about $3,600 was raised to secure the current.
Several from Marion, Al Richardson, Homer Hoch, Dr. E.L. Braddock, John Gardner, and Wallis Hoch attended the dinner. People there prevailed upon Congressman Hoch to stay and make a speech in the afternoon.
