ly shown by the following letter from
Mrs. J. P. Johnson, Secretary of the
Social Economy Club of Grants Pass,
Oregon, which was received by Miss

At a late meeting of our Social
Economy Club, under whose auspices
Dr. Rebec came to our city and spoke
to us, it was unanimously voted to
extend our most hearty thanks to
your department, and particularly to
Dr. Rebece, for his most excellent ad
dress. His discussion was enjoyed by
practically who heard) him, and a
large number were enthusiastic in
their praises. We consider Dr. Rebec
a very fine speaker and a most capa
ble teacher. We hope to have him
with us again at the first opportunity.
We wish Dr. Rebec to be made ac
quainted with the contents of this
letter, and would very much appreci
ate it if the same could be published
in •'The Emerald.” the college paper.
WTe want everyone to know how we
enjoyed his address.
Very truly yours,
MRS. J. P. JOHNSON.

of clothing,” said Miss Zahl. “In
each of these families there are chil

age, three of whom are cripples.
“After finishing with these families
the society intends to find others and
continue with this kind of work.”

dropped from the college.
