WOMA\'S CLUB, OP'ELOLUSAS. Loi pos The last regular meeting of the woK pelousas Woman's Club was with ide, ss Edith Mayer, Saturday, Febru- wil ary 18th. The president being sick, bra the vice-president, IMrs. John Deb- lea lieux, presided. The roll was called als and minutes of the last meeting were abi read and adopted. mu A' report from the treasurer showed tio that $130.00 was cleared from the ] tacky dance given at the Elks Home me on February ;th. bringing the fund in for the library up to $367.46. inf The chair appointed two commit- toc tees, of three each, to confer with exl the chairmen of the Parent Teacher's acd Association and the High School Ath- me letic Association, offering to both, the cooperation and assistance of the Sc club. The first committee named' was foi tirs. W. -B. Robert, Mrs. Ivan Deb- da lieux and Mrs. W. T. Stewart, who ha were to confer with Mrs. Alex W.* he Robertson, chairman of the Parent an Teacher's Association. The second be, cqinmittee, Mrs. Fred Hollier, Mrs. pa D. E. Durie and Miss Evelyn Stagg th; to confer with Mr. Mendoza, chairman eI of the Athletic Association. n The club has undertaken two more fa 'enterprises whereby we may enlarge the library fund. The first is to se- Ifo cre 100 subscriptions to a popular on spthern magazine, by March 11th, in return for which the publishing com- sii pay will give $50.00 to the club. The H second enterprise is the staging of z a musical comedy, under the able di- h rection of a professional director. D This will be staged Monday night af- fe ter Easter Sunday, at the high school of auditorium. b3 It is the aim of the club to raise at least $500.00 before making the gen- Si ral appeal or drive for funds for the S, public library and we feel sure that this amount will be raised over and as above after the two plans now on foot in have been completed. The play for the afternoon was A lostand's most delightful one, Cy- ri inme de Bergerac. Miss Evelyn Stagg ce ib her most inimitable way gave the i sory of the play and afterwards read to b a quite charming manner some of et the particularly characteristic parts od the play, giving us at first some '1 the humorous sketches, then some the more serious and beautiful Miss Stagg's readings are a very clever and the club antici with pleasure her renditions al Mrs. Ivan Deblieux, taking :ohn Deblieux's place as critic, iº most delightful and interesting on the play, showing a close of the play, the author, and ly Cyrane himself.

Mrs. F, V. I* T. Powers and Mrs.I red the first pro-i :and to them formu hensive outline of lI -task. Fortunately, I and kindly guid-. . Seroggs who then , -Economics at tls Louisiana State University, it was m possible to plan a coherent outline of work in harmony with the general fit idea in view. The charter members at will ever hold in grateful remem brance his help at that time. To the m leadership of Mrs. Emerson, the club T also owes a debt of gratitude. Her spec ability and strength of purpose did ent, much to establish the sound founda- has tion upon which the club now stands. mer It was at first agreed that the club T membership should not exceed twelve Alfi in order that all discussions might be Bloc informal. This number was found T. too small for best results so it was Her extended and there are now twenty C. active members and three associate ret, members. Mr. A distinctive feature of the Social drei Science Club is that it meets in the Bea forenoon on the first and third Fri- smi days of each month. A rule that Nu, has been strictly adhered to is that Re3 the meeting be not longer than one J. and one half hours. Thus, business Mur, begins promptly at ten o'clock and dell papers and discussions are limited so Nie that the sessions may be over at Etl eleven thirty o'clock. This, as a work ing principle, has proven most satis factory. The year's program makes provision I for one or two lectures from some the one outside who will elucidate some exp point or problem before the Club. Be- tha sides Dr. Scroggs, Dr. Mason, Dr. C. wel H.'Bean of the Louisiana State Uni- wel versity has given a number of very nat helpful talks to the club.
