The Priscilla Club, now part of
the Navy Comforts League of U. S..
met with Mrs. Liddle as hostess.
Monday afternoon. There was a
goodly number present, earnestly
working at their knitting. Dcl'gl.t
ful refreshments were enjoyed. The
secretary read a letter of acknow:
edgement for finished garments al
ready sent in. Everybsdv is very
enthusiastic over the work, but all
felt a little dull when we lear'ned
that we were not allowed an; more
than thirty members to the unit and
that the amount of wool furni .ed
by the Comforts League of U. S.
was limited to fifteen pounds for
each unit. 'However, the whol3 club
felt relieved when it was announced
that Mr. J. A. Salmen had come to
the rescue with an ofier to furnish
all the wool the ladies of the club
care to knit for an unlimited time.
Mr. Salmen's kindness is '"ertainly
appreciated not merely as a ciub but
as individuals.
The writer feels the importance
of the Navy Comfort. Leag:e so
much that she hopes thiat another
unit will soon be formed, so that
some who are anxious t0 coms in and
knit might get full benefit and prop
er credit-so many of the y:,ung
ladies would find it pleasant and
profitable.
Any one desiring to form another
unit may obtain the necessary in
formation from Mrs. A. V. Hover,
president of the local club, or direct
from Washington.
