"The program committee has fleem
ed it wise to make some changes in re
porting the activities of the past year.
Owing to war conditions standing com
mittees were able to do little worn ana
this 'being a year -for a change of ad
ministration, with possible changes of
committee chairmen, it seemed best ta
eliminate committee conferences and
give more time to speakors who have
vital messages for club women. We
will therefore Uav a- speaker from the
state board of vocational education,
one from tho national "social service
bureau upon Americanization and one
from the newly created child welfare
commission. Ample time is to tie giv
en for delegates to inspect the Agricul
tural college -and .dclighttui mncneon
followed bv convocation on the earn-
pus is to be given for the delegates
by the college faculty. President Kerr
will deliver an address at this session.
'The musieal features promise to be
delightful and. will give the club, wo
men an opportunity to learn of this
phase of life at the college.
'This year bids fair to eclipse any
former year in attendance. See that
your club sends a full delegation and
let us turn onr eyes toward s renewed
activity in clubdom."
Tho call also contains the amend
ments, to the constitution, which will be
offered. The most vital of these asks
that the federation meet annually in
the spring at a place and time desig
nated by the board of directors, that
tho dues be increased from 10 to 15
cents and that five cents per capita be
set aside for the president's traveling
fund; that the section be struck out
that provides that no menvbeT shall be
eligible to the same office for more
than two coneeentivo years.
