Musical and elocutionary numbers
by members and dolegates added to tho
enjoyment of all sessions.
An important point mado clear to
tho dologates by tho stato officers, to
wit, that communication had been had
with Washington on tho question of
whother it would bo best to abandon
tho holding of the convention on ac
count of tho war conditions, and that
tho national council of dofenso had ad
vised that such gatherings bo not
abandoned, as thoy furnished ono of
th most effective means whoroby
patriotic advlca and instructions
could bo sent to tho states and in
telligently distributed by tho dolegates
who come from all parts of tho state.
Anothor point that Is of gcnoral
pulbllc" intorost was contained in an
ftddroHS by Mrs. Maude Goodwin, of
Omaha, Mrs. Goodwin was a dolegato
to the convention and she is also stato
chairman of ihe surgical supply work
of tho Red Cross Sho urged tho Im
portance of keeping up tho supply of
surgical dressings by steady work,
not by excessive output at times. At
timos tho production has been groator
than was necessary, our troops not yot
being ongagod in tho war to any con
sldorablo extent, but tho time is close
at hand when tho need will bo greatly
Increased, and an adequate supply can
bo had only by a steady output from
all tho workors every week.
