FIFTH REGIMENT BAND
ORDERED TO QUINCY
DANVILLE MUSICAL ORGANIZA-
TION WILL PROBABLY GET
AWAY THURSDAY NIGHT.
The Firth Regiment band, the second Danville military organization to get orders to entrain, will probably leave Danville some time Thursday night, for Quincy, the home of the colonel of the regiment, and which city is the headquarters for the regiment. The orders came to Lieut. George W. Bushong Wednesday evening and immediate preparations were made to get out of the city. The only thing that is holding the band back is the lack of transportation and this is expected some time Thursday afternoon.
