This method of giving prizes has
proved so successful that the state
association has this year offered 15 1
prizes under the same regulations.
Five are to consist of $100 each and t
10 of fifty each. Applications for
.hese are already being received.
Two bulletins of general interest to
embers of the association have
en issued by the executive commit
e, within the last year.
The association has been officially
laced upon the roll of the Federa
on of Womans' Clubs and will be
represented at the annual meeting in
lay by two delegates %who are to ser
,e on t;he program.
The Federaition has placed at the
disposal of the School Improvement
association its 130 traveling libraries
and its traveling art gallery. Mrs.
Eugene B. Heard of Middleton, Ga.,
who is the Gen. Supt. of the Free 1
Traveling Library System of S. A. L., 1
has made t-he president very cour
teous offers of the use of her travel

Senator Latimer, who is here now
ttending the meeting of the immi

101nmber says lie didn't do it, that is,

''These boats carried cotton down

to do it. The poling is so hard that it
is impossible to get anybody to .pole
