The O’Neill Woman’s Club enters

activities with a bright outlook, and
with much anticipation. The program
committees have done their work well,
the year-book is in the hands of the

It will be plainly seen that no one
can afford tto miss even one of these
programs, so the President, Mrs. Gil
ligan, asks that each member consti
tute herself a committee of one to
