Tlie St. Joseph Oa.cttv of Sunday
lost, had a charmingly written "fea
turn" article on the Oregon Fudo
Club," an organization of young la
(Ilea, who attended our HIk'Ii School,
vowing to olitaln a college education,
and how beautifully they kepUthelr
vow. The most reinarkahle feature
In the lives of these young ladles is,
that they have heen Inseparable only
when away to school, atid are still as
chiimmyi and dear to each other as
when they llr-l mel and organized the
"ludge. Club" ten years ago. Not in
a single Instance has one oft hem ten
derod their withdrawal from the club
because, forsooth, she could not be
rnc president, or chief fudge, maker
they have been bound togother hy
that golden chord of love, and as such
liavu gone through their lives loving
each other, a help and stay to one an
other that makes their lives only the
more beautiful, and an example every
way worthy of emulation. While
they are not in any sense man-haters,
they do not feel thai he Is necessarily
essential and we hope their ranks
may neer be broken Just on account
of a man. TiiiiSkntinici. extends Its
congratulation to the Fudge Club,
and to caehofltsinemb.irs personally.
