Beasley; flint glass workers league No. 9, John Fody and Ed Ulrach; flint glass workers league No. 23, John Dodd and Harry Neurman; cigarmakers union, John Fox and Barry Johnson; musicians association, U.G.

The various other unions will soon present credentials with representatives and the delegation will be accompanied by a number of outside parties also who have taken great interest in the effort being made by Muncie. This city as usual will furnish music in abundance, as two bands will be taken. The committee has notified the Trades Council to make an assessment or apportionment for necessary expenses. One of the objects of the committee meeting will be to appoint sub committees which will have charge of the preliminary work pertaining to the general arrangements of the programme [sic] program, security and selecting speakers, etc. The Muncie delegation will go via the Big 4 and have secured tickets good going on Saturday, March 12th.
