Chairman of Advisory Committee... Mrs. F. Morrison, Gorgona, C. Z. At the meeting, Miss Boswell was waile an honorary member of all the Zone clubs, and a rising vote of thanks was tendered her for the grand work she had accomplished. From this time on, the clubs have shown a healthy life. The membership is growing rapidly, and schemes of interest are being taken up and pushed by all. The Ancon club has taken a particular interest in the school question, liorticulture, and the study of Spanish. The other clubs have organized Halloween parties, and various works for social diversion. The spirit of the women is best exemplified by a resolution passed by the Cristobal club and endorsed by all the others, reading:

* Be it resolved, that every club woman in the Canal Zone constitute herself a committee of one to foster favorable, instead of adverse criticisms of the conditions of the Zone, and the Isthmus of Panama."
