“SERVICE” IS KEYNOTE
OF lawrencbmlle CLUB
Believing with the late President
HaixihAjr that “service is the greatest
thing in the human calendar,” and
with this as its keynote, the Law
renceville Woman’s club has been able
to do many worthwhile things during
hte year. Every movment tha has
meant the betterment of the commun
ity has been promoted. The organiza
tion of the Junior club, which is com
posed of about forty young ladies and
which is sponsored by one of the club
members, has been one of the biggest
achievements. The future Lawrence
ville club woman will be a trained
club woman, according to these en
thusiastic young women.
The club has added very materially
to its treasury by serving the weekly
luncheons to the members of the Ki
wanis club. Through the instrumen
tality of the Kiwanis club and others,
it has a splendid clubhouse, which it
has made into a regular “community
club house.” In addition to these im
provements, each department! and
divisional chairman has done some-
thing worth while.
Constitution Day Celebrate*!.
The department of American citi
zenship, Mrs. W. T. McGee chair -'an,
began its activities by celeb ins:
“Constitution day” in a most splendid
way, speakers for the occasion being
Professor C. O. Stubbs and C. E.
Monfort, of the city schools. This de
partment also secured Mr. Monfort
for a series of lectures on “Citizen
ship.” “The Edward Bok peace plan”
was presented before the club by the
president and voted on. The club ease
a “straw ballot” for president, Mc- (
Adoo leading the ticket.
The club has a 100 per cent regis
tration and all members took active
part in both city election and demo
cratic primary. One of the members
was a member so Mr. McAdoo’s cam
paign committee and another member
is on the state democratic committee.
The civics committee has been very
active, having planted a number of
dogwood, crepe myrtle and water oak
trees on courthouse square. Other
spats in town are being made attrac
tive with flowers, the business men
cooperating by planting flowers
around the business block. Land
scape Gardener Harvey has made
outline of work to be done on campus
and clubhouse grounds and work will
be begun at an early date, various
organizations cooperating. This com
mittee sponsors a chrysanthemum
show annually. A rest room is also
maintained by this committee. Arbor
day was observed with a very appro
priate program by the senior class of
the public school. Many trees were
planted. One memorial tree was
planted. At a later date trees will be
ilanted along the highway. The de
partment of applied education has
done exceedingly well. Mrs. C. 0.
Stubbs is chairman.
During children’s book week, this
committee urged all schools to parti
cipate. The teachers of the public
school cooperated by . haviag special
story hours and posters illustrating
famous children’s books. A program
was given, the P. T. A. cooperating.
A most interesting number was "Liv
ing Pictures,” characters from fa
mous children’s books being represent
ed. A silver tea was given, also a
book shower. A number of children’s
books were given and a nice sum of

TO WOMAN’S CLUB
BY MRS. BAGWELL
Four years of service as President
of the Lawrenceville Woman’s Club
have been completed. It has been
four years of development, achieve
ment, happiness, for all who have
carried forward the program of ad
vancement which has put our club
among the women's organizations
working for the betterment of life.
As president, it has been my privi
lege to serve the Woman’s Club, with
the exception of the time of my ill
ness with my entire strength.
Always, it has been my pleasure
to respond to every call for advice
or aid and I have felt that the loyal,

of the club and th,e beautiful spirit
of sacrifice always shown in our un
dertakings were my inspirations.
The entertainment oi the Ninth
District of Federation of Women’s
Clubs, will bring to a climax the
strenous work of the past year and
I am sure will place our club before
the eyes of the whole state of Geor
gia. Our membership has increased
each year and we feel that we have
had a part in helping the Kiwanis
Club carry on Its ap.’endid work, by
our spirit of cooperation.
We have the distinction of moth
ering the only Junior Club in the
Ninth District, which is being spon
sored by Mrs. T. A. Smith, one of
our club members.
A beautiful avenue of trees is one
of our best gifts to the town, and
when we view the beautiful new
school building we like to feel that
we helped to put across the bond is
sue that made it possible.
A rest room in the central section
of town is maintained by this club,
which has meant so much to the
Tallulah Falls school, the Federa
tion’s own child, and which is locat
ed in the Ninth District, has had a
large support from us, having sent
SIOO.OO, besides a supply of beauti
ful towels only very recently.
The library in our own school was
given $35.00 and o. $25.00 set of
books, besides many other volumes.
OUr club room in the Kiwanis
building is being equipped.
It has been our pleasure to pre

we have appreciated and found use
for much home talent. Our ministers
always being so gracious to respond
to our calls in our various programs,
on Literature, Music, Health, Home
Economics, Education, Library Ex

partly sponsored by our club, was
an inspiration to the town. A hand

MRS. BRANTLEY STRESSES
CLUB INSTITUTES TO
BE HELD IN SUMMER
Before the clubs close the meet
ings for the year I would like to
stress the fact that two club insti
tutes are to be held this summer, one
at Mercer university for the training
of women in civic leadership, and
the Georgia federation will take a
definite part in this institute for the
time assigned them for the training
of women along the lines of club
work, club ethics, club courtesy, club
organization and club ethics.
The part assumed by the federa
tion will be presided over by Mrs.
Nichols Peterson, of Tifton, as gen
The institute at the state universi
ty at Athens is, strictly speaking, a
dub institute with its object the
training of women in club work,
club courtesy, club organization and
club ethics. The outline of the work
is that prescribed by the federation
and is the same as was used by Mrs.
Winter in the club institute she con
ducted at Chatauqua last summer.
The executive board of the Georgia
federation has had in mind in ar
ranging for these wonderful insti
tutes to put the advantages of both
within the reach of everybody and it
is earnestly hoped that the club
women over the state will avail
themselves of the excellent advan
tages these institutes will offer. Mrs.

CAL JUNIOR CLUB
After attending the Biennial, m
Atlanta last year, Mrs. T. A. Smith,
who was the treasurer of the Law
renceville Woman’s Club, went oaik
home enthused with the idea of or
ganizing a Junior club in Lawrence
ville. On June 5, 1923, she called
together the young girls of the town,
at a little informal reception in her
own home, and organized these
charming young ladies into what is
familiarly known now by the town as
“The Lawrenceville Junior Club,"
and a little later federating them in
the State and General Federation.
These girls, numbering about thir.
ty-eight in all, are quite young,
ranging in ages from twelve or four
teen to about twenty years—a hap
py, wholesome, clean-minded little
band of young womanhood, with a
high sense of honor, and a very
broad vision of purer ideals, with a
longing to be up and doing, to ac
complish something. Enthusiasm and
activity are among their chief char
“Service” being their motto, they
stand always ready and willing to
respond to any call made upon them,
and are untiring in their efforts to
do their duty. The officers include:
president, Miss Edna McKelvey; vice
president, Miss Alma Reynolds;
treasurer, Miss Corrie Belle Holt;
secretary, Miss Bernice Williams;
parliamentarian, Miss Mary Wil
The meetings are held the first
and third Tuesdays in each month in
the Comunity club house with the
different committees appointed to
carry out the club program, which is
done with quite as much dignity as
the grown ups. For the length of
time since their organization,
nave accomplished some good work.
They have had parliamentary drills
and are quite familiar with club eti
quette. Last summer the girls served
several lunches and suppers in a va.
cant case next to the postoffice.
Each one contributed to the “upper
the necessary articles, making almost
clear profit what they took in, there

Christmas week they sponsored a
royalty play, “Myistrels of 1924”,
directed by the T.arkin Dramatic
company, and our receipts showed
something over SBO.OO and after ex
penses were deducted, the ba'ance
was turned over to Prof. Stubbs to
help on the curtain fund for the
school auditorium stage. Christmas
gifts were donated to the poor and
warm clothing given to the needy.
A goodly number of trays and
flowers haw been sent to the sick
in by the Junior club
girls, notes of sympathy and letters
of condolence written; and when
several of the members have been ill
in the hospitals, post card showers
have been the result.
At the October meeting of the lo
cal Woman’s club our Juniors acted
as hostesses on this occasion, serving
delicious refreshments, and were
very highly complimented by these
ladies. They have recently cooked
and served the Kiwanis club a boun
teous feast, which was so thoroughly
enjoyed by them that the girls were
asked to serve the Kiwanians again
at their next meeting which is in
May. This money also goes into their
treasury. On the 16th the club will
have another lunch and supper in
the case, the proceeds from which
win be sent to the Tallulah Falls
On the 11th of November (Armis
tice Day) the Junior club sold the
poppies for the Woman’s club. The
girls made these poppies themselves
and sold $22 worth on the streets of
Lawreneeville. Everybody whom
they asked bought a poppy or sever
al. One of the merchants' bought
enough for his window display. They
received a nice note of thanks for
the check sent the Legion from the
sale of the poppies from Mr. Mc-
Whorter, also one from Mrs. B. M.
Boykin expressing her appreciation.
The Juniors are also rehearsing
for a play which they will give at an
early date for the benefit of the
school curtain fund. And on Monday
after Easter they gave an Easter
