29 Music Club Sponsored by Miss Helen Jerard, the music club began its fourth successful year by electing Irene Limper president, Margaret Hobbs vice-president and Faye Clapp secretary-treasurer. This year the music club initiated a new plan for programs. Instead of one program chairman, there were five, each having charge of a group of seven or eight students in the club, every group had charge of two programs during the year. Mary Razak. Clara Lou Davis, Marjorie Gould, Margaret Avers and Shirley Marlow were program chairmen. The programs for the year varied from miscellan- eous numbers to group singing. One of the high- lights of the year was a musical knowledge program conducted by "Professor Quiz." Mrs. Chartier, who visited the N. B. C. studios and the "Good News of '38" program-besides attending the Rose Bowl game and parade, made one club day verey interest- ing for the members by her talk.

G. R. Club The Girl Reserves enjoyed a very successful and worthwhile year under the sponsorship of Miss Mar- jorie Berger. Initiation se1'vices W91'9 held in the fall for over two hundred members. The cabinet members for the year 1938-39 were President, Ruth Jenkins, Vice-president, Catherine Naboursg Program Chairman, Mary Margaret Ar noldg Secretary, Helen Stagg, Treasurer, Katherine Newman, Social Chairman, Sara Winkler, Service Chairman, Marian Penleyg Publicity Chairman, Ruth Kretzmeier, and Song Leader, Jean Hummel. Irene Limper was the club pianist. Each cabinet member chose a woman to act as her city sponsor, and these nine women composed the community Y. W. C. A. These women were Mrs. 28 baskets to the poor. The two clubs also held two joint meetings, one a "Professor Quiz" program, and the other an address by the Reverend Joe Riley Burns of Hays, Kansas, as well as the Hi-Y-G. R. caroling party, which was held in December. The Hi-Y - G. R. play, 'tTake My Advice" was pre- sented November 29 under the direction of Mr. Ronald Hopkins. Three G. R. girls participated in it. Each week programs were presented which in- cluded plays, talks, musical, and miscellaneous pro- grams. One of the most enjoyed meetings was a style show presented by the Freshman Commission of the college Y. W. C. A. Through the work of Ruth Kretzmeier the bulletin board in the hall has received as much attention from the boys as from the girls. The posters have been superior in artistic qualities as well as in in- W. E. Sheffer, Mrs. H. L. Kugler, Mrs. F. V. Berg- man, Mrs. F. J. Hanna, Mrs. J. D. Arnold, Mrs. R. H. Brown, Mrs. Frank Prentup, Mrs. H. H. Bishop, and Mrs. H. F. Lienhardt. These ladies entertained the G. R. seniors and faculty with a lovely tea in the spring. The faculty sponsors, besides Miss Ber- ger, we1'e Miss Helen Wilmore, Miss Kathryn Zipse, and Miss Hellen Houghton. , The club was divided into eight committees of -about thirty members each. The committees met nearly every month, and each was responsible for ,earning five dollars for the G. R. club. They did this by holding candy, cup cake, and cookie sales after school in the afternoons in the main hall. Many worthwhile activities were sponsored by the Girl Reserves. At Thanksgiving the G. R. club co- -iiperated with the Hi-Y club to send Thanksgiving terest and thought. Subjects have ranged from how to arrange your hair to the motto "Spare time is the difference between success and failure." The G. R. Bulletin board has received a great deal more at- tention than in previous years thanks to Ruth. Heart Sister Week, February 13-17, was as en- joyable as ever, and was climaxed by a tea on Fri- day, to which all of the Girl Reserves, and the city and faculty sponsors were invited. According to their annual custom, the Girl Re- serves attended church in a body on Palm Sunday. They attended the First Christian Church. Holy Week services were held in the G. R. room at 7:45 each morning during the week following. The social events of the year were ended by the Mother-Daughter Banquet which was held May 13. At this banquet the new officers were installed.
