Officers Chosen by Methodist WSCS Ladies Wednesday Mrs. Jacob Cantlin Will Continue as The President Woman's Club to Aid Mount Carmel Children's Home Since the Mount Carmel home Is the project this year of the Whiteside County Federation of Woman's clubs, the Rock Falls Woman's club has taken action to do its part toward this worthy cause. Mrs. Francis Grennan has been named Mount Carmel home chairman in the Rock Falls club, and will be assisted on -the committee by Mrs. Peter F. Dletz, president of the Rock Falls club, Mrs. Ivan Holderman, Mrs. Clarence Scott and Mrs. E. J. Relsener; The committee does not expect to start work on the project until a visit to the home has been made to investigate what Is ^needed there. Clothing for the children Is always acceptable at any tune the committee knows, but the members are anxious to secure the ages and correct sires for the children there at the present time before doing any •olldting. This Is essential since clothing that is not the right alee will not be of any use to the children. Word has come to the committee that the home Is in need of curtains, Ice box, new stair treads, electrical equipment and many more household necessities. The committee hopes to work out means of raising money to turn over to the county federation to assist in the purchase of some of these articles, or to purchase them outright. What can be done by the Rock Falls club for the home will be more definite after the committee has visited there in the near future. Mrs. Grennan has had considerable experience In such projects ai this and is keenly Interested in welfare work.
