with only two general offlcera and four
vice preeidents ef the Nebraska Federa
tion of Women's oluba eligible to re-election,
club women are naturally looking to
ths election of officers as one of the Im
portant features of the annual conven
tion to be held at Kearney In October
and In the mean time are casting about to
find suitable candidates. Mrs. C. B. Let
ton of Falrbury, recording secretary, and
Mr. Nellie B. Miller of Omaha, auditor,
of the general offlcera and Vice Presidents
Mrs. Laura M. Woodford of Weeping
Water, first district; Mrs. Charles Belleck
of Blair, Second district; Mrs. N. 8. Clark
of 8tromburg, Fourth district, and Mra.
Delia Hartsough of Mlnden, Fifth district.
are eligible for re-election. Naturally
chief Interest centers In the successor to
Mrs; H. M. Bushnell of Lincoln aa presi
dent. Perhaps the most generally talked of
woman for that office Is Mrs. H. L. Keefe
of West Point. Mrs. Keefe has served aj
vice president of the Third district for two
yeara and has made a splendid record and
It la said that the women of that district
will be unanimous In asking the convention
to elect her president. Mrs. Keefe Is one of
the best Informed women In the federation
In almost all the branches of work In which
the clubs are Interested and haa demon
strated exceptional executive lability dur
ing her term aa vice president of the Third
district. She haa attended the paat two
atate conventlona and waa a member of
the Nebraska delegation at the St. Paul
There Is very little settled talk of other
candidates snd Mrs. Keefe seems to be
generally popular. Chief among the mat
ters that the convention will be called
upon to consider la an amendment to the
constitution providing that the atate meet
ing be held biennially Instead of annually.
There Is a wide difference of opinion among
club women regarding the advisability of
thla change.. . Many" feel that the -biennial
