the year of The Young Married
W 'omnan's So ial cdub, will be the
annual business meeting for the
election of otllcers,I and will be
held at the residence of Mrs. W. F.
Taylor on June 30th at 0.:?0 a. i).
During the past year, and the first
is always the most difficult year to
st' ccssfully steer a new craft, Mrs.
Taylor has held the chair of Pre.si
dent to the entire satisfaction of
the club, proving herself perfectly
at home in both social and otllcial
capacities. Mrs. John P. Scott and
Mrs, John .,i. Comegys, in their
respective positions of Treasurer
and Secretary, have won laurels
of approval from the members for
the professional manner in which
they have kept the books of the
club, demonstrating that ease in
the nmachinery.of a social club, is
due to systematic art, not chance.
