lln'a hall Saturday night, the colored
members of the Wayman mission,
with Mrs. Lavlgne Garnett still direct

church $525.25. This is slightly over i

$1,500. Said Mrs. Garnelt today to
a representative of The Argus: "We

how long or how hard we have to

the aid which we need.''

Mrs. Garnett Is now working out a
plan for holding a fair in the near
