TRI-CITY women are as capable entertainers as can be
found anywhere in the country and they will prove it
this week. - '
And first of all, its the men who appreciate this fact.
They know that Rock Island, Davenport, and Moline WO7
r.ien know how to entertain and they know, too, that only
a woman understands just what to arrange for visitors.
Just a glimpse of what the local caldrons are to do
for visiting wives, mothers, sisters and sweethearts of the
Veiled Prophets is revealed in the program of events for
the three-day session which they have arranged. The vis

Just three years ago, June 5, a
group of Rock Island women inter
ested in Masonry, founded the
Daughters of Mokanna.
The families of Amoo grotto were
adverse to permitting the men to
! enjoy all the good fellowship, get
i together meetings, smokers, and
other events all to themselves, ana
some women conceived the idea
that as the grotto proved such a
magnet to the men, an organiza
tion of similar character should
prove of the same benefit and in
terest to the women.
This idea spread rapidly -with the
result that a grop of earnest wo
men organized Amoo caldron.

name from one of grotto's most
