I Women arc Discouraged Ovar the
Lack of Interest
To Thi Tribune An erroneous
1 idea was given by a local paper
| last week concerning the amount,
realized on the Clark recital. The
paper stated that $100 was codec
ted by the club women and that |
this sum amply covered the neces
sary expense of the entertainment.
The fact is, oidy $71 was realized
by the promoters of this splendid
literary treat, and this after long
and untiring etl’ort. Had it not
been for the fact that a considera
ble amount was in the club treas
ury from one of last season’s en
tertainments the women would
have faced a deficit. Many of the
club members justly feel discour
aged over the lack of interest dis
played by many prominent Falls
City business men in literary and
musical features of unquestioned
merit. Members of the commer
cial club are constantly urging
citizens to make every effort to
build up the town. That is credi
table, but are our commercial fea
tures everything? Shall we stop
there? Shall we base everything
ou dollars and cents? Falls City
and many of bei well to do people
have done this ter a harmful ex
tent and she should awaken to her
error. A Cu t: Mpmiii.h.
