Mr. Foster, state leader, just be-
before leaving for the Washington
office sent out a report of the year's
work in New Mexico. There were
many things of real interest bat the
one item that gave the most pleasant
surprise was the summary of the cost
values.
We do not like to think of club
work in dollars and cents. That is
not the greet appeal in the movement
there are other great basic motives
back of it all citizenship, teamwork,
neighboriiness, manhood, womanhood
those are the things that club work
means to those boys and girls who are
its.' disciples. 13ut when the dollars
arfd centa side of the question pre
sents itself it is a real comfort to get
the message from Mr. Foster's report.
Total value of club work
foil 1920 160,349.46
Cost ef production 20,266.07
Total value above cost $30,184.38
The expense for club work, includ
ing supervision, salarit travel ex-j
penses, etc., amounted to sometning
like $22,200.00, leaving a net gain of
over $7,000.00 Club work more than
paid for itself in 1920.
Another item of interest in that
report was the percentage finishing j
an indication that only those young-
sters who carry a thing through are
entering into the work.
Let us be even more sure for 1921.
For the girls in the sewing classes,
it may be some encouragement to
know that Queen Mary of England
is an expert milliner. If spring bon
nets are as high as they were last
Easter there will be more queens
turning out their ovn creations--and
even wearing them perhaps.
California leada in the production
of beans this year. The crop waa
valued aa second to that of the citrus
fruit
It would be a project worthy of
standard elub efforts this year.
The purple coat and black hat still
hangs in the office, also a boy's coat
Surely they are missed these cold
days.
Mr. Greer of Shiloh was an office
