Women’s Civic Club (1955) 

News by Mrs. F. E. Winn - The Women’s Civic Club met Wednesday, January 19, at the Community hall with Mrs. Myron Osgood presiding.  The usual amount was voted for the March of Dimes campaign.  Reports of committees were heard.  Miss Glyde Graves, music instructor at the high school, asked for help from the group in a home talent entertainment to be given by the music department.  The club members voted to take part in the program.  Mrs. E. L. Witte, program chairman, who has as her house guest a displaced woman with considerable musical talent, asked to have the privilege of presenting this lady at the February meeting.  The club voted its approval. 

The study topic "Agricultural Wisconsin" was presented by Francis Steiner, vocational Ag teacher at the local high school.  Mr. Steiner told of several things wherein Wisconsin ranks first, but confined most of his talk to our own Clark County and what can be found on farms here at home. 

Mr. Steiner believes there is no better life to be found than life in rural Wisconsin, but adds that farming, like all other business, requires lots of energy, vision and business ability. 

Following his talk the hostesses, Mrs. Clark Waterman, Misses Bess and Pearle Beeckler, served a dainty lunch.  The table was prettily decorated and place cards bearing the names of Al Smith, Daniel Webster, Martha Washington, James Olgethorpe and other great Americans were found at the covers.  It was for the ladies to find the name of the great with initials like her own. 

The next meeting will be in February.
