The Leader wants every woman to keep the dates of the school in mind and to invite friends to join In attending. The school will be more interesting and better than ever. .—.—• A mee Seventh Annual Convention operators of Mill* County Or- ' held ln ganization Community Night at the HilUdale Church Friday Board .Ponders Data of School Pay* $2600 Warranter Re- viewt Start of Year's Work> .? .
