J. 6'Neil was program chairman at the Monday afternoon meeting of the Harrisburg Woman's club. Guest speaker for the afternoon was Mrs. R. C. Davenport, who spoke on "Literature m English and American Schools. In regard to American Literature in English schools, Mrs. Davenport had'written for first-hand, information from her cousin, who is headmaster of one of the large schools in Central England. He stated that favorite, books by American authors among the students of pri mary schools are the "Wizard of Oz," the "Katy" stories, and "Uncle Tom's Cabin," and the students still learn by heart Longfellow s "Children's' Hour," a poem Mrs. Davenport remembers learning as a child when she attended school in England. In English schools emphasis is placed on oral reading, which helps to create a : love of reading. In secondary schools American literature is widely read. The teachers set up their own comprehensive lists which include such books as "Little Women/' "Tom Sawyer," "Huckleberry Finn," and works written by Jack London, O. Henry, Poe, Hawthorne,- Emerson, Longfellow, and Whitman. In covering-literature in schools here Mrs. Davenport sought information from Miss Bess Pemberton, Mrs. Lois --Locke, and. Miss Frances Batctfeldor, teachers in local, schools. A thorough account of literature and how it is taught in our schools, taking it from the first grade through high school, was given by Mrs. Davenport. She also read a list, prepared by Mrs. Locke, of well selected books now in the. splendid library at Junior high school. ,, "An urge we have through life, she said, "is wanting to know what is going on, not only in our- own community but in the far flung corners of the world. This complished first by reading. In our American schools the first aim in literature is to satisfy this urge to. read. A good book warrants reading several times. Reading arouses the imagination, creates! ideals, matures our judgment, helps | us to. become wiser. American lit-' erature is coming into its own, with many fine books and wonderful poems." In the absence of Mrs. Bob.Bur- nett, Mrs. D. H. Hiller read the devotional prepared by Mrs. Burnett, which expressed* the thought that each New Year is a gift from God to us. Therefore time is precious, she said, and asked that each.- member strive- to make this yea? the best year of his life. Mrs. Hiller closed with- a- poem entitled, "My New Year's Wish." Mrs. J. B. Biackman was hostess at the meeting, and two honorary members. Mrs. E. M. Oakes and Mrs. R: W. Waliis, were present, together with 21 regular members of-the club. Announcement was made by Mrs. R. C. Davenport, district president, of the district board meeting to be heldL in Eldorado, on Thursday. Jan. 15, at 10.a. m. at the Calvary Baptist church. Luncheon reservations are $1.00 and every member. is urged to attend.

Funkhouser, Eighteen -.nembers were present, and-Mrs. Paul Frankenstein was assistant hostess. -^"Mrs. Moore gave names together with detailed descriptions of those water fowls which are most] commonly known to this section \ of. the country.
