EIGHT MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE APRIL 3 1934 Mason City Club Leaves Federation Finances Make Withdrawal From State Group Necessary. The Mason City Woman's club voted to withdraw from the Iowa Federation of Women's clubs for the coming year at its meeting Tuesday morning at the Y. W. C. A. The action was brought about by financial stringency rather than by any dissatisfaction with the Federation. The Woman's club was the largest group in the Federation. The board felt that in order to maintain the high type of program, both general and departmental, which it contributes to Mason City women, at such a small cost to them, it was necessary that no per capita fee as great as $.35 be sent to the Federation, but that a sliding scale of dues payment be arranged. This idea has been presented to the Federation. Flay Writing Contest. It was voted to sponsor a one act play-writing contest for members of the Woman's club. A committee will ,be appointed to draw up plans for 'the contest and an out of town judge will pass on the manuscripts. Mrs. Charles Grippen presented to the Woman's club the plaque won by the drama department in the Iowa City Play production contest with the entry, "Ten Minutes by the Clock." Mrs. Gripen also reported progress being made in, the plans for the spring Woman's club play which will be given in May. Annual Reports Made. Annual reports were made by the chairmen of the various departments and committees. Tentative programs for the coming year were discussed by some of the chairmen. The handicraft department will have four demonstration lectures by an Ames expert next year. Mrs. C. E. Dakin announced that the outdoor life department will conduct a plant exchange in April and a garden show in August. The child conservation department has arranged for a benefit bridge during April, according to Mrs. R. W. Willis. The music department's next meeting will be a summer outdoor musicale.
