have kindly volunteered their sorvicf and
by porsonal Invitation, some of the older
of tho young men nnd women may be In
duced to come and irecolvo the worlt laid
out for them.
Tho all absorbing question to tho com
mittee now is, how to secure space for
practical talks, for It Is qulto evident that
a small room will not bo suitable for the
purMso, for It will not accommodate
enough peoplo at a tlmo. Plans or sugges

The committee Is titll looking for a few
volunteers to take charge of tho reading
room during the evenings. Mr. Fauquot
has given his time on Tuesday evenings
and Friday and Saturday evening havo
been provided for. But tho second sem
ester's work has burdened tho committee
In this to somo extent. Several students
work at tho settlement now And them
who had volunteered to take up library
solves unable to do so because of addition
al school work. The committee antici
pates hut little difficulty in finding stu
dents who will volunteer for tho other

ctts. G. Music commlttee-Tho music committee
has divided Itsolf into three heads, social,
concert nnd Instruction. Sickness and bad

7. Visiting committee This committee

Lela Wheeler, W. T. Elmore.
S. Tho committee has decided upon tho
plan and method of tho lino of work to

tlmo all arrangements for the work havo
not been completed.
A directory Is to be placed at tho houso
to contain the names of 'those desiring
work, so '.hat the committee may at all
times know whom to help.
A thorough canvass of tho district i'H
bo made next week and cards will bo
printed and used for this purpose. The
result of this canvass will bo entered In
the directory. From present Indications It
is men and not the women who need
work. Several wants for girls could not
bo sunnlled. An effort Is being mado to
get the co-oporatlon of the "associations
of the city for this branch of work. Ida
