Eight Logansport, Indiana Pharos-Tribune News ™d Views By Mary.D'Andrea As summer's muggy blanket descends on the Logan-land area, many women's clubs and organizations adjourn for the hot months or at least limit their activities to picnics, swimming parlies, family outings or something of that back-to-nature stuff. • So it seems appropriate at this time to offer a vote of thanks to the all-important and often overlooked link in any organization —the club reporter, or publicity chairman. SHE HAS A JOB lhal offers little reward and a lot of work. She has to deal with a society editor (who must not be dealt with before a cup of coffee) ... she must write accurate and legible reports . . . and she must, above all, be timely; If her story doesn't gel in the paper the way she wrote it, she may be Karrassed by her president or other members who don't understand the space problem on a. society page ... she must remember to take notes at every meeting and then.try to decipher them when she writes her reports . . . she must remember deadlines and first names . . . dates . . . time . . . speaker's names . . . program topics . . . and on and on. Among these efficient souls who diligently supply this page with news are NORMA SABATINI, who keeps us posted on Tri Kappa . . .

"Yes, I do, Mr. Greensfelder," lo which he counters, "But do you know which one . . ." (You're Janet's husband . . .) Special thanks to all the fine BETA SIGMA PHI reporters ... I can't recall all of their names because there are several local chapters (all girls do a fine job) ... to JOAN MUCKER who's so prompt with Sigma Phi Gamma reports ... to FLORENCE BAUER'S excellent reporting for the National Council of Catholic Women . . . lo the numerous women who give us news about PTA's, HD clubs. Study Groups, Home and School '. activities, church circles and Women's Associations . . . there are - just too many to name but their work is certainly appreciated by this corner . . . we'll look forward to hearing from all of you (and the new ones) next fall.
