DOAK Yesterday, the meeting of dis trict ten of the North Carolina Federation of Women’s clubs, held at Clarkton, brought to a close the sixteen meetings which have been attended by Mrs. James A. Gupton, Char lotte, federation president, and the second vice-president, Mrs. Edwin P. Brown of Murfrees boro, covering the entire state. All of the meetings were well attended, and reports to Feder ation hadquarters bring high praise for the two new officers as speakers and leaders. In turn these officers say, “The spirit of the clubwo'men everywhere is all that we could ask for, and the clubs are ready to do what is expected of them.” Many of the clubs now have their p r ograms completed and most of them have held the first meeting, in most instances a formal dinner with a notable speaker. The themes suggested by the federation officers for the year have been v/ell re ceived and the clubs will now proceed to emphasize the two major themes proposed—world peace, with the International Relations department leading in three fields, study of atomic en ergy control, support of the United Nations, and foreign and territorial club work, particu larly in the Philippines; and, second, a continuation of the fine program of Youth Conser vation being directed by Mrs. J. Henry Highsmith and an able committee. All of the departments of the Federation, Citizenship, Ameri can Home, Art, Education, Mu sic, Literature and Public Wel fare, have built their programs to further these two important objectives. The Citizenship department is urging clubs to continue to spon sor “Citizenship Day” in their communities, and to begin now to plan excursions to the “Free dom” Train” when it passes through the state. Also, clubs are urged to promote the study of world citizenship not only in their meetings but to provide public schools with plans of work in this subject that will be supplied by the General Fed eration of Women’s clubs. That the public schools will come in for a great deal of study and attention from club women this year is evidenced by the passage of a resolution presented at district meetings in the east, following its adop tion by district eight, and ap proved by hundreds of club women. It calls for correction of conditions brought about by the war, such as over-crowded classrooms, unqualified teach ers, etc., and pledges efforts to secure Federal aid for schools and lunchrooms * * * Mrs. T.
