The senior division has two groups. The first is the unmarried contingent, rhese girls also have their bit of work that is unselfish and altruistic. For instance they devote themselves to bringing cheer to the war veterans of Hospital No. 48. Then they attend .•lasses of arts and crafts, history, gym and others offered specially by the club under well-known instruc tors. The last branch is that of the ma trons. These ladies are not only giv en an opportunity to establish a cen ter of thought and activities for their children, sisters or friends, but they themselves take an active part in the civic, educational and social features of the club. Any classes such as his tory, child psychology, arts and crafts or golf are readily arranged for as small a group as ten at a very nomi nal cost.
