FOURJi-THE MORNING AVALANCHE ^*n^~~T-—- / Texas,/ Friday; March 27, ,1942 T HE SEVENTH district conven- ,-tion will go down in history ;>s a meeting that adhered to the .,- program; both as to subject matter and time allotment. Mrs. T. V. Reeves of Canyon, 1 district program chairman and one of the.' most efficient women we ever hope to meet, has a little time box. It flashes a warning at i) minutes, 2 minutes, 1 minute 1' and T. U. (.time's up.) Presiding officer Mrs. H. F. Go• deke's husband is an engineer and one of his students at Tech college made the bo.v. Mrs. Godeke and Mrs. Reives were determined that the convention was not going to lag and it was no small matter to crowd material for a 2 and ^i day convention into a stream-lined 1 and ?i day matter. « * * CHALLENGING IDEA VX7E LIKED what Mrs. W. B. '' Irvin, acting chairman of education, said in making her report before the convention body Thursday afternoon and asked her for her closing remarks. Here they are: "Reports are valueless save as they challenge to greater achievement. The past is gone; the present is extremely uncertain. The follies of two World wars is not to be attributed to thoughtless youngsters but to full "grown adults. "Adult education, while costly, will not cost one-tenth as much as our adult ignorance is now actually costing us every year. better education of- adults will save civilization from complete collapse. We all want to do all we can for democracv's victorv " * * » rpHOSE corsages of defense J- stamps that Mrs. H. F. Godeke, Mrs. J. W. Walker, Mrs. J. M. Perkins and Mrs. Jud Collier were wearing Thursday were Mrs. Collier's idea. As state chairman of legislation and chairman of the sale of defense stamps and bonds, the energetic Mumford woman originated the idea to supplant the expensive corsages that ^usually mark such gatherings. JDon't -ever get the idea that organizing a convention program is easy. Mrs. Reeves says it is worse than, making over last year's suit in to this year's dress. '" :! Pretty Mrs. J. W. Walker says she has no use for maudlin senti- mentaliay but she idoes feel that she can let down her hair and really be her self in this her own district. She has two more conventions to attend before turning her complete time and energy to the convention of the General Federation to be held in Fort Worth April 26-May 2. - r m * "* rriHERE'S a Latin-American dis- -*- play off of the art exhibit room at the First Methodist church, convention, headquarters, that is sponsored by the Lubbock Woman's club. Mrs. A. H. Douglas was chairman, assisted by Mrs Web Cammack. here are a number of interesting articles from Juarez and Mexico City. Mrs. Chester A. Hubbard wanted; to call the painting-of her son, Burl, which won first place in the art contest, "Seventeen." Her son protested with "Aw shucks, -why call it -(hat; call it Hub!" '"Hub" is his nickname. Women of the seventh district (assisted no doubt by the assistance of their husbands) have bought, nearly >i million dollars worth of defense bonds, Mrs. W. B. Price, legislation chairman for the district, announced in giving h-ir report Thursday afternoon. Mrs. Walker says her husband is one of the best "club women" she knows. He can look through her mail, assorting the important from that which appears not quite so important. For instance he forwarded a letter from Governor Steve/ison's office the very day it arrived. * » * NEED SONG BOOKS rvNE HUNDRED copies of "The ^ Golden Book of Favorite Songs" are needed at the Lubbock Army Flying school, according to word from the chaplain's office. The books are unavailable in Lubbock stores at present and ordering being what it is now-a- days no one can be sure how soon they can be obtained. If you have some copies of the books won't you take them by Dr. Bessie League's home at 2621 Twentieth street? Dr. League will see that the sons books get to the base. * * • MORE FLOWERS TF YOU'LL go by Mrs. J. G. - 1 - Keaster's home, 1912 Ei"hi- eenth street, today she will give you violet plants. Mrs. R. \V. Walker, 1313 Avenue M, has bulbs of large flowering red cannas she wants to give to some one rather than throw them awav. T OTHEH.
