Boasting an active membership of 331, the Y.W.C.A. is indeed an up and coming organization. This year a new plan was established- interest groups, meeting once a week, took the place of the discussion groups that were held three times a quarter last year. Included in these interest groups were contemporary plays and poetry headed by Peggy Woodward and Wilferene Konecny, girl reserves under the leadership of Dorothy Christofferson and Ethel Gustafson, public affairs directed by Dolores Kopriva, personal religion handled by Ruth Dahlberg and Dorothy Rankin, music and its background guided by Marian Mercer and crafts coached by Mary Lyon. Early in the year a tea was held for freshmen and other new stu- dents and later on the freshman Y was organized. Marilyn Miller and Dorothy Anne Comstock presided over the group during fall and winter quarters. The freshman Y, with Dorothy Grant as chairman, has its own cabinet which meets bi-weekly and also its own interest groups. Melanie Schroeder and Virginia Dunker headed the person- ality group, Margaret Mauss and Ora Clark were in charge of travel and Anne Anderson directed crafts. Y. W. C. A, Dorothy Evans, finance chairman, kept the organization from going in the red, and the annual bazaar held under the chairmanship of Marian Mercer helped fill in gaps in the budget. The Y-Knot groups headed by Frances Lennon organized board and room and town girls into groups according to the location of their homes. These groups met twice a month for social, spiritual, business and inspirational meetings. The summer conference at Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, was attended by nine girls, seven drove to Grinnell for the International Relations Conference and ten attended the Iowa Area Conference held at Palisades. The Y participated in the Armistice Day observance. Religious Emphasis Week and Universal Prayer Day. It also sponsored a radio program every other Tuesday, with Florence Valencourt in charge, and vespers held once a month under the direction of Dorothy Rankin. Betty Whipple ably presided over the organization during the year assisted by Dorothy Evans, vice-president; Alice Atchley, secretary; Mildred Gauley, treasurer; and Mrs. Donald Rock, advisor. Back row: Dahlberg, Mercer, Moehl, Hoeflin, Lyon, Grant, Comstock, Lennon. Front row: Cash, Rankin, Atchley, Whipple, Mrs. Rock, Valen- court, Gauley.
