The Woman's Auxiliary of the Jam
bes Post held Its regular January
meeting in the club rooms on the af
ternoon of the seventeenth at three
thirty. The meeting was called to
order by the Commander. Mrs. G. A.
Ricks. Eight members were present.
The minutes of the previous meet
ing were read and "approved.
The Commander read a letter to the
Auxiliary from Miss Ida May Yow
thanking them for conferring upon
her the honor of electing her Adjutant
and Finance Officer, yet declining the
ofllce on account of prssure of other
work. Nominations to All the vacan
cy thus created Were called for and
Miss Mattie Allen was unanimously
elected Adjutant and Finance Officer.
The question of yearly dues was
brought up for discussion and it was
c'early shown that after tho general
and state dues had been paid the sum
of one dofTar per "member did not le i
sn amount sufficient for current ex
penses; consequently a motion was
made and carried that the yearly due?
be increased to one dollar and a half
(11.50) per member. It was also an
nounced that this year the member
cl ip cards will ke sent out from head
quarters when the annual report and
dues have been received. No mem
bership cards will be issue dy Individ
ual units as heretofore.
The financial report for the year
was read as follows: Total amount
received from all sources $458.30; to
tal paid out for all purposes )240.63;
cash "on hand towar I memorial fund
Some splendid suggestions were
made by the Commander for plans to
lenew or arouse fresh Interest In the
c'.nb. In accordance with these sug
gestions the Auxiliary will probably
