The grace with which the Woman's club carried out the plans of hospitality toward the women visiting the city marks a new era In civic affairs; it accentuates the breadth of woman's i view and the depth of her civic pride. The women of the club are or all po litical belief as are the representative man of the city; but beyond and above all party differences they are women. Their chief interest in life being the welfare of -women and children their outside working interest must be the welfare of the city and state which houses and governs them. Therefore when the Woman's club was asked to undertake the responsibility of enter taining the visiting women during con vention week it thought only of its duty to the city, its hospitality toward other women of other clubs of the state, and Republican, Democrat. Progressive and Stand-patter alike, they worked as an organization to further the pleas ure of the city's visitors simply because they were guests of our home city, for which the Woman's club has always heretofore acted as hostess in coopera tion with the chamber of commerce as host.
