I Women's Committee Plans
! 1 For Victory Loan Campaign
I Miss Anne Hossinger, chairman !
of the Women's Committee for the
Victory Liberty Loan campaign is j
arranging all preliminary details i
: in readiness for the drive which j
begins on Easter Monday, April f
i and closes Ma.\ 10. I
I Miss Eleanor Harter has been |
aapointed publicity chairman and I j
the personnel of the committee will ; '
be the same as for previous loans. !
This arrangement, Miss Hossinger \
stated this morning, is best from
an economical standpoint since :
those who have served in previous
campaigns are .familiar with the | ^
work and consequently no time is I
l° s t in organization and instruc- ! ^
tion.
For this campaign the women |
will have no special circulars pre-i
pared for they believe that there
is more force in an appeal that ap-i
!

i
plies equally to men and women
than in one prepared Tor any spe
cial class. This is one of the sev
eral developments resulting from
a closer cooperation of the men
and the women workers.

Farmers' Trust Company of Newark
Newark, Del.
called a meeting on last Wednesday
evening, and after a very enjoyable
social time and the serving of re
freshments, unfolded a plan for in
creased attendance at the Sunday eve
ning service.
This plan is in the nature of a
spirited contest. The roll of member
is divided equally into two camps, the
"Reds" and the "Blues", each under
able captains. Miss Ethel Campbell
and Mrs. Jennie R. Frazer lead the
former; J. A. Hays and Anna Ritz the
latter.
Attendance at meetings, speech
making, prayer, securing new mem
bers, or inducing former members to
attend, each constitutes a given num
ber of points. Competition is keen.
The attendance on Sunday night was
unusually large and interest and en
thusiasm were especially manifest.
