“Modern Women in A Five Year
Plan for the Home." Mrs. Wood
opened her program with a beautiful
tribute to tiie home, calling it the
eldest foundation of time. She
spoke of its types and the character-
istics that go into the making ol a
home, and made clear it was not the
hcusing. wall, equipment, or prem-
ises that make home, but the co-
operation. fellowship, spirit and
understanding of each for the other,
parent and child, and their spiritual
reverence for God that make a
Mrs. Wood also spoke of the pio-
neer. the colonial, the up-to-date
and the exclusive home of today and
discussed the fact that each could
be a success.
Roll call was answered by famous
mothers. Mrs. Wood was assisted
by Mrs. Hartman, whose subject was
"Making the Most of Our Posses-
sions." She made a clear word pic-
ture as to the value we place on
what we have and also that others
esteem our possessions in the same
light that we estimate them. What-
ever we prize highly will be recog-
nized as valuable. The most costly
furniture, carpets, and clothing
lose their value if tke owner does
not associate them with excellent
A truly beautiful lesson in making
the most of our possessions was
brought out in a discussion by Mrs.
Grady Fooshee, “Art in the Home
Life." This talk convinced club
members that anyone could have
beautiful surroundings no matter
how crude or meager the house or
premises. Nature will grow flowers,
shrubs, and trees for the poorest of
God's children, and willing hands
can weave into beauty the discards
and wastes from extravagant homes.
Shacks and waste lands become
priceless treasures with willing hands
and a love of beauty that work them.
Mrs. Woods’ beautiful interpreta-
tion of home with her helpers gav
the club members a priceless lesson
of home and in the language of
Donald G. Mitchell who said. “From
my heart I pity him whose soul does
not leap at the mere utterance of
that name ‘Home,’ pity him as
he need pity.” '
Mrs. Woods, assisted by Jerry,
served a delicious refreshment plate
to twenty-two members. The next

home of Mrs. C. E. Quillin Thursday,
April 20. The subject of the meet-
ing will be “Health Day."
