WANT VAN LEW HOME

There were present more than 200 members of the club, and the meeting was most enthusiastic. An address was made by Mrs. Whitlock, representing the Federation of Mothers’ Clubs. Joseph H. Saunders, principal of the school, spoke on Five Ways in Which Mothers Can Co-Operate in the Work of a School.
The following officers were elected: President, Mrs. W. H. Curry; First Vice-President, Mrs. W. F. Smith; Second Vice-President, Mrs. J. G. Carter; Secretary, Mrs. A. B. Clarke; Treasurer, Miss Mattie W. Hatcher; Librarian, Miss E. P. Neale.
