From the November 10, 1921 Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), page 1:
Why Not Organize?
In years gone by Skidmore had a band, but this year it has not been organized. We have gone through the summer and fall without a single concert. There are not less than 12 or 15 persons here who own instruments and have played in a band at some time. It is known that some of these would like to organize a band. Why not get together?
