The New Elgin Hotel ballroom was formally opened last Friday evening. Marion Dancing Club and other especially invited guests were entertained by Mrs. Immer and her brother, C.H. Wheelock, who recently have taken over the management of the hotel. The Greasart girls furnished music for the dance.
The new management has recently improved and remodeled the interior of the hotel. Hard maple floor has been laid in the dining room, new tables have been built in at the sidewall, and a balcony built in the northwest corner of the dining room.
The New Elgin is an unusually fine hotel for a town of this size, and in making these excellent improvements, the new management shows a spirit of progress.
Many Marion friends of both bride and groom are interested in the announcement, carried by Peabody papers last week, of the marriage of Percy Potter, son of Senator T.M. Potter, to Helen Baker, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R.N. Baker.
Attention is called to a warning issued by peace officers concerning sale or gift of cigarettes and tobacco or the use of the same in public places by minors.
