Some of the men who have tome in to the xiice are known In the country at large. John W. Kern, the defeated vice presidential candidate, and Benja min F. Shivley, for several years a member of congress from the. South Bend district, belong to this class. Benjamin F. Chivley made an en viable record in congress.

A. has made considerable progress in the" days that have Intervened since its organization On Nov. 10," said Miss Myra Fishback, ptate secretary of the organisation to irhe Forum today. "The success and stability of the organization are as sured by the splendid interest on tha part of the women of the city, and tftelr fine spirit of co-operation in be ginning the work. "There is every reason to believe that the Y. W. C. A. will be a vital ^factor in the life of the community jind that it will do for this city what it is doing for other cities all over the United States and throughout the world. The organization has been well tried and has devoted its fitness to meet the needs of women every where in England, continental Europe and the far east as well as in the United States. The Fargo association will soon be affiliated with the great national organization and a committee has also been appointed to take steps toward procuring a charter from the state. "At present the work of the associa tion is largely In hands of the board of directors and the members of three standing committees, the administra tions committees being the only ones appointed thus far. These women have taken up the work with wisdom and energy and have given time to the matters of business and organization which could hardly be spared by th'e younger women whofce time is usually taken during the day. The interest and effort of the women of the city are especially appreciated and are essent ial in giving stability and permanency to the new organization. The young er women will be ready to fall into line as other committees are appointed and other departments of work open up. "There will bfe opportunity for ail to Work together and co-operation is the asoclation idea —that all women of the community shal be united in Its felowshlp to give and to receive. Every girl or woman of moral character in the city is eligible to membership and entitled to the benefits and privileges of the association. It should be stated also that the young women of Moor head who are interested In the Y. W. C. A. are Cordially invited to become members. "It is the plan to have the associa tion work started In earnest by the first of the year and steps are being taken to secure a secretary of training and experience who can be on the ground by Jan. 1 and It is proposed to open suitable rooms at that time. "The house committee will make an effort to secure desirable quarters, where there can be reception, reading and rest rooms, and, if possible, one large rom for lunch-room and gymnas ium purposes. "The lines- of work to be followed will be determined largely by the wishes and needs of the members and requests have already come In for classes in embroidery, German and English, besides the usual activities and the. social side and practical serv ice features which will be emphasized. "The matter of membership is of primary importance at the present time. A city of the size of Fargo should not be satisfied with a mem bership of less than 800 and it Is hoped that two-thirds of this number may be charter members. To be counted as a charter member the membership fee must be paid before Nov. 30, as It was decided to close the books of the charter members at that time. The membership committee is at wprk and they will be glad to receive the names of all women who wish to Join. This committee is composed °f Mrs. S. Dunlop, Mrs. R. A.
