WILL LECTURE ON
To the Ladles of Hood River County:
The Woman's Club announces that
on the afternoon of January ".1st, at
the Commercial Club rooms, will be
given an Illustrated lecture on home
decoration by Mrs. Dollttle of Port
land. Mrs. Dollttle Is a professional deco
rator, lately from Chicago, ami those
who have heard some of her talks,
and had the pleasure of examining
the fabrics, draperies, etc., that she
carries with her In Illustrating her
lectures on beautifying the home,
can testify to the artistic conceptions
and harmonious color schemes that
There are few women who nre not
thoroughly Interested In making
home attractive. To some this Is
an easy matter, for with the artistic
temperament good fortune has sup
plied nn ample purse. The full purse
does not always mean good taste
and we fret because our chairs are In
the way, our carpets strike us In the
face when we open the door, and our
curtains anil draperies are not ns
satisfactory ami beautiful as Mrs.
Blank's, ami yet cost More money.
Why Is It thus?
It Is Mrs. Dollttle's purpose to give
some directions nnd, In fact, inexor
able rules to help us overcome some
of these seemingly small questions
which are, In all seriousness, barriers
to many a housewife's ierfect happi
ness. There Is no gainsaying the
fact that harmonious surroundings
produce harmony lu the home In
life, and so It Is the duty of every
woman to study this Important
question not alone for the pleasure
of the eye, but for the comfortable,
soothing Influences upon the family.
We hope the ladles of Hood River
town and countryside will take ad
vantage of this opportunity to hear
Mrs. Dollttle and to examine the
beautiful fabrics, but there Is another
excellent reason why we want you
to be present on the .'list of January:
that Is the day on the calendar of
the Hood River Woman's Club
known as "The Scholarship Loan
Fund Day." The Federation of the
stite considers this one of Its
most precious departments. The
purpose Is to aid deserving girls who,
through no fault of their own, are
unable to cope with the financial
world ami secure the education that
they desire and deserve. There Is no
publicity given to the names of the
girls; they are known by number to
all club women other than the ofll
cers who have charge of this depart
ment, such olliceis not being allowed
to disclose names. There are at this
time twenty girls receiving aid
through the Federation of Women's
( lulls lu Oregon, oue a resilient of
Hood River, ami two others In New
York City studying art.
All can readily understand that
this means that we must have
money and that we do not wish
Hood River to fall down In her re
port at tin- srid of the year. I-t us
have a pride In this very commenda
Besides the lecture by Mrs. Dollttle,
we are vry happy to say that Mrs.
