She retjorts that the day ses sions will be held In the Congrega tional Church, and the evening meet- ngs probably at the Methodist. Both churches have been put at the service of the club, and each seems specially suited for the meetings that It is de sired to hold there.

In most parts of the country, but down in Georgia the "Girls' Canning Clubs" have solved, not only many of the knotty problems In the matter of employment, and entertainment for girls, but they are building up an Industry both cred itable and profitable. In 1911 two counties of Georgia or ganized the girls of from 12 te 16 years into clubs for the purpose of raising and canning tomatoes. The girls were given one-tenth of an. acre each, and a teacher was employed in each county to Instruct the girls In raising, and later in canning the tomatoes. In these two counties 15 girls sub mitted complete records of work in gardening and canning on tenth-acre plots under the instruction of the Unit ed States Department of Agriculture, and the Georgia State College of Agri culture. The best Individual record of that year was by a 12-year-old girl who had produced 2155 pounds of tomatoes from her tenth-acre; had canned 600 No. 3 lars, making a profit of $24. A year later' 18 counties of Georgia had taken up the work and had organ ized canning clubs for the girls, and in 1913, 28 counties had taken up the work. 1813 Records Profits. The returns from 1913 have not com menced to come in yet, and the profits will not be known till October, but in 1912, 2200 girls were represented in these clubs and 13S took part in the annual state contest at the corn show In Atlanta. These girls had produced vegetables on their tenth-acre plots to the value of $4850, and had put up 25 000 cans of vegetables. The average profit on these tenth-acre gardens was $24.88. One girl raised 3000 pounds of tomatoes, canned 760 No. 3s and made a profit of ?72. These are the results, but the method of attaining them is much more impor tant, for it shows the necessity for or ganization, and demonstrates into what useful channels the energies of young people can be turned if properly, and efficiently directed. In putting these clubs into action, and carrying them to success, numerous agencies have been employed. First, and perhaps most important at least the first essential, was the financing. This was done almost wholly by local support. The School Boards, State Fair Association and various county organ isations supplemented private contri butions. In the- organization of canning clubs the county is the unit and work is car ried on in direct co-operation with the County Superintendent of Schools and his board of education. It will be seen from this that the work is rather more educational than gainful, though the latter may give zest to the former. Teachers Flam Orsrailz&tlons. The organizations are planned by the teachers at their institutes, and the clubs are perfected during the school year. The clubs study the instructions sent them by the Government, and an effort is made to have older women in the community join in the study. Summer brings the "canning parties" where, under the leadership of a spe cial teacher, groups of members meet to work and be instructed. The "Can ning party" opens up the social season as well, and Is one of the events in the life of the rural community. Then the prize-giving at the State Fair is the culminating event. An ef fort is made to have these prizes all of an educational nature, and at the last distribution they consisted almost wholly of scholarships many of them In the State Agricultural College at Athens. These prizes are given by women's clubs, the State Federation of Women's Clubs, and various other or ganizations of Georgia and other states. In the last analysis of the success of this enterprise must be accounted the practical commonsense which com bines the school and home life of the girl in one common interest. Mary B. Creswell, director, writes: . , Opportunities Are Manyi The activities of the clubs are planned with reference to relating the work of the school and home in the training of girls In matters of home making. Attention is focused upon fundamental activities In the home, in the doing of which the girls find op portunity for genuine service to the home, happy co-operative work in groups or clubs, and the necessity for instruction at school which will enable them to learn the best way of garden ing, cooking and canning." With Oregon's school gardens, juven ile market and home credit system, why cannot some enterprising club' ad vance the canning club Idea for Ore gon girls? At Its adjournment this Summer the Ontario Woman's Club, formerly the "Work and Win Club," reviewed the most efficient year's work it fias ever accomplished. With Mrs. H. H. Whit ney as its president, and with a mem bership of 30, this club has made Itself strongly felt as a factor for helpfulness in Its community. Chief among its good works, perhaps, Is the aid. always so unfailingly given the public library, which though no longer a club property, having been turned over to the city and become a tax-supported institution, nevertheless still needs help, as it Is now passing through the critical pro cess . of buying a permanent location and erecting a Carnegie building. A total of $225 was given the library by the club this year. Another big work was the relief fund sent the flood sufferers In Ohio and Indiana this Spring. Through the in strumentality of the club, Ontario sent $108 in money, also two crates of eggs, two boxes of canned fruit, two boxes of clothing, and a carload of vegetables. Other good causes which received as sistance from the club this year were the town's Cemetery Association, which profited nearly $80; the local school grounds, for the beautifying of which tne ciud set aside SaO to buy seeds and bulbs; the local hospital, where the club furnished a room last year, to which $25 worth of furniture was add ed this year; the Federation's scholar ship loan fund, for which $17.25 was realized at the annual tea. given for mat purpose, and the Red Cross Seal fund, for which seals to the amount of $6.54 were sold. The club also agitated the subject of garDage cans, awarded small cash prizes for flowers shown at the Countv f air, and tooK charge of the women s restroom at the Fair grounds. Co-ope ration with the schools was main talned at a higher pitch of Interest than ever before, and. the attention given scnooi questions was very noticeable, several thoughtful papers and thorough Discussions on these subjects making . part or the year s programme. Club's Name Changed. The club's name was changed to the Woman's Club, with the hope that it may become the representative woman's organization of the town, and that the acquisition or larger quarters next year (in the new public library) will be followed by a corresponding Increase In the membership. The money for the various benefl cences mentioned was secured in sev eral ways. The annual tag-iay in Sep tember, the annual tea on Red Letter day and the annual ball in February, were all very successful. The heaviest undertaking of the year was the pub lication or a jsew rear s issue of a local paper; which netted the club and the newspaper's owner each about $200. A vaudeville entertainment at one of the local picture show houses also brought excellent returns. The study for next year is to be largely a good citizenship study, with several programmes on the Panama Canal Interspersed. At the annual elec vice-president, Mrs. T. Murphy; secre tary, Mrs. M. Ellen Sheldon; treasurer, Mrs. C. Sommerville, Here is a hint to some of the clubs that are making inquiries regarding next year's programmes and desiring 'something different. The Woman's City Club, of L.os An- ereles. is having a programme of two types the coming season. One will con slst of lectures and addresses relating to facts as. they are. on matters- that admit of no particular difference of opinion. The second will deal with suDjects of controversy, which will be dis cussed pro and con, leaving the mem bers to form their own judgment. Also there will be occasional pro grammes of a literary nature, without relation to civic problems. Menus for the Week Tuesday. Fruit soup. Sreaded veal strips. Sptnach. Noodles in tomato sauce.

The latest Improvement In " school desks is the American steel sanitary desk, which is guaranteed to last a lifetime and is sold at prices little higher than formerly asked for the best cast-iron desk. These new steel desks are hygienic and sanitary. The smooth steel sides, with gunmetal fin ish, afford no lodgment for dust or dirt. All filigree work is eliminated. School heating and ventilation, also sanitary drinking devices, are receiv ing more attention today than all other problems connected with the school system. Doctors and scientists have emphasized that without pure air and clean, uncontamlnated drinking water in the schoolroom, the health and lives of the school children are constantly endangered and their physical and mental strength lessened. There are now especially designed furnaces built for heating and ventilating the rural schools, as well as those of the larger towns and cities, and bubbler drinking fountains on the tank gravity style for use in schools where piped water is not available. The Northwest Com pany is headquarters for these appliances.-. GRAPHOPHOXE WIDELY TJSED Mechanical Appliances Increase Ac curacy of Instructors With the growth of the use of me chanical appliances to lessen the bur den of teaching and increase the accu racy of instruction In schools one or the devices that has been foremost in the field and is assuming a continually more important place Is the grapno- Dhone A realization or tne importance oi the place which the graphophone Is as sumlnar in educational-work is found in the fact that one company, the Co lumbia Graphophone Company, Is de voting a great degree of exclusive work to the preparation of grafonolas and Columbia records for use In the schools. In the New York schools the grapho phone records have come to be a recog nized factor in musical, calisthenic and similar training in the various grades, and In many other cities similar con ditions are coming to pass In Portland an example is to be found in the playgrounds. Professor Robert Krohn, director or tne playgrounds, is using a number or graronolas to tur nlsh music for the folk dances and I drills which are being taught the chil dren. Several of the public schools of the city are also supplementing their teachers' work with grafonolas. The chief merit of the grafonola In ted by the leading educators, is that It makes It possible to place before the children a flawless example in Instru mental or vocal training. Ordinarily, while the superintendent of music In a school may be an expert, it is difficult to find a teaching force all members of which are trained musicians, or are capable of giving the best musical di rection to their pupils. It is in cases like this that the grafonola comes in for effective use. With the development of the use of the grafonola in the public schools has come about the development of a new and special department In the manu facture and producing of machines and records. Phonographs especially fitted for schoolroom use have been devised and in producing records careful at tentlon has been given to the demands of the school in its various grades. In thk- Columbia Company the result or this development nas Deen tne ex tensive course outlined and graded for school use by James McLaughlin, di rector of music in the schools of Bos ton, and issued as the "Columbia Uni versal Graded Course."

The attendance at the school has been increasing at the rate of about 25 per cent a year for some time past, and corresponding increases in the equipment and teaching force have been necessary.
