Helen Harrison of York, Nebraska, re
lated the story of the organization and
growth of the town and county club in
York. Mrs. Harrison is the president
ot the club and her report was breezy
and sympathetic. The real object of all
club life k sociability and unity. So far
the country has not shared much in the
movement The experiment at York
has been successful in uniting town and
county. Every community contains the
type of woman represented with such
perfection in Mrs. Harrison. Somebody,
at once brave, hopeful, full of tact and
willing to spend .herself fo: others, con
tent if the end be reached. Such a club
should be started in every town in Ne
braska by women who have reflected

played a most sympathetic and carefully
shaded accompaniment. Dean Wilson
ot the University of Nebraska spoke on

the Denver Biennial. Then occurred
the election of officers, the result of
which was published in last week's

liked in the state. Her efficiency and
activity have been tried and great satis

serve the club again but she emphatic
ally declined. Mrs. Stoutenborough has
