Time hag certainly moved on wings
fhia year, and here we are planning
for Thanksgiving, Christmas and the
New Year when it still seems the heart
of Rummer. Affairs have been few as
society always manes it propitiatory of
ferings to beneficent docds before be
ing satod with music, dances, bridge
parties and other festivities. The cul
mination of the many concurrent events
for the Y. W. C. A. has been most
gratifying and the donations which
were generously offered played no small
part in the success of the undertaking.
This week has been a busy one, and
there have been a number of delightful
affairs, one of tho most attractive bo-
ing the dinner over which Mrs. Hubcn
Boise presided, ns a farewell attention

inrown together and the guests enjoyed
a gay evening of dancing. Mj-s. Knight
