85; sandwich trays made 74; waste paper baskets made 4; lamp shades
32; chairs; recanted 8; book ends 29; portfolios and book covers 31;

The leaders and her cooperators have worked
hard and faithful and we feel that the women’s work has gone over
bigger and better than ever before. We are hoping even more
enthusiasm will be shown when the new project is undertaken.
