Washington. D. C Oct. 10.
Through an announcement made
here today it became known that
the National Conservation Con
gress has arranged to establish an
organization in every state for the
first time in the istorv of the Con
servation movement. T h e state
organizations are to be under the
direction of the Congress and are
being formed under a policy that
wtll give powerful impetus to the
work of the national body. Plans
have been made for nation wide
activity by the state organizations
prior to the Fifth session of the
Congress which is called to meet
in Washington November 18, 19,
Through the machinery thus
created the Congress expects to be
able to set in motion in the various
states con rete plans for putting
into practical effect the conserva
tion principles for which the Con--J
j;ress stands. Heretofore the Con
gress has contented itself for the
Amost part with working- up public
sentiment through its annual meet
ings. In this it has been highly
successful. Each of the four great
annual meetings of the body has
had a noticeable effect on senti
ment and legislation.
The Congress is already power
ful in its function as a clearing
house among the state Conserva
tion Commissions and the Conser
vation committees of various
national organizations. Through
these, and particularly the latter,
, wit has been able to exert great, in
fluence. President Charles Lath
rop i Pack feels that its scope should
become still.iroader. To this end
he has caused the state organiza
tions to be perfected. Each state
organization will consist primarily
- of a state vice president and a state
secretary. Contrary t o custom
these officials will aot b e mere
figureheads. Active men of known
influence have been selected and
are committed to energetic appli
cation to the work in hand.
The Vice Pres. for Hawaii is
Ralph H. Hosmer of Honolulu.
I The Secretary is Mrs. W. F. Frear

held last year was so favorably
commented upon, that many spe
cial orders were placed by patro
nesses with Mrs. Brown fo.- this
years's samples, which in many
cases are destined for Christmas
presents. Many intricate and ex
tremely arli.tjc designs in fancy
work will be shown, the work of u
