"I hate not jet siven the matter of
entertaining for the Fair much consid

"though I have no doubt all women of
the city who have large houses and who
hold important positions socially, will in
a measure contribute to the city's social

As Mrs. Walsh Is the wife of Julius S.
Walsh, intlmatelj associated with many
largo business enterprises with the
World's Fair Board of Directors and as
she Is alo a tlce president of the newly
formed Women's Club, many duties rela

naturally devolve on her.
Her hitherto large household of daugh

on. have considerably thinned, since this
winter will remove the only unmarried
daughter. Miss Josephine Walsh; but with
her daughter-in-law. Mrs. C. K. Dickson
