erine of the Barnes Club, Mrs.
Sam Martin of the Camden Club.
Mrs. Maurine^ Holleman of the
Moscow Club and Mrs. J. D. Shef-
field of the Livingston-Lamont
Club. The crafts taught at camp
were fabric flowers, pine straw
baskets and straw bracelets and
earscrews. If your club did not
have someone attending camp
then you may ask any of the
above women to teach you the
crafts. Council paid the expenses
of five delegates so that the
crafts might be brought back to
the county. Make arrangements
with any of the above to teach
the crafts to your club. They will
not be done by the agent in a
training meeting. It is the re-
sponsibility of each club presi-
dent to contact one of the wom-
en and ask her to teach any of
the crafts to the clubs.
