Two Meetings Per Month The meetings of the club are held on the second and fourth Monday evenings in each month. The first is a social meeting and the second a business one. Every social meeting is in charge of a special committee ap- pointed by the president. In this way the members have leen given a chance to actively display their tal- ents and the success attained can be attributed largely to this fact. The social meetings of the club have been in charge of the following commit- tees: Social Meetings The first social meeting on April 24 was gaciously presided over by Miss Virginia Rogoski, chairman; Charlotte Welch, Francis Jackson, Gordon Ginnochio, Vesta Jarrett anti Eleanor Bert.

This entertaining program was put on by the following committee: George Mather, chair:. man; Christina Field, Patricia Street, D.J. ,I Ryan, Bill Wiggins, Zita De- Clerk and Arline Duerr. Money akers Every attempt of the club at money making has been ifighly successful and it feels that this has been due as much to the. hearty support of the parish as to the true co-operation of the members. The various activities of the club along this line have in- cluded dances, shows and a food sate. The vaudeville show given May 29, "The Four Queens," was given under the direction of James Mullens, chair- man; George Mather, Arline Duerr Annie O'Hara, George Trapp ann Francesca Zeisler.

The play was directed by Mr. James Mul- )ins of the committee and was said by many to be the best amateur perform- ance that has been produced in this city. The play was prese:nted first at Mount St. Mary's Academy on the 14th of November as a dress rehears- al. It was presented twice to the pub- lic at Cathedral Hall and at the open- ing of the new Nurses' Home at St. Vincent's Infirmary it was given for the benefit of the home. The follow- ing members of the cast and the parts they played deselwe special mention: Miss Francesca Zeisler as Mrs. Bunch McCann of Detroit, the lady with every ailment known to medical scmnce; Miss Helen Burke as Mrs. Sol Whipple of Whipple's Corner, Connecticut, the old lady with the nerves; Mr. George Mother, as Mr. Butternip of Peoria, Illinois, the old man with the thirst for tonic; Miss Catherine Clark as Tessie, the (le- mented case; Miss Mary Lee Beavers as Maudelia, young daughter of Mrs. McCann; Miss Francis Mallory as the nurse; Mr. Hickey Himstedt as Major Kellicott, the fake stock salesman; Miss Eleanor Bott as Sylvia, engaged to Jim Anthony, which part was taken by Mr. Ed Wright. The part of Buddy Brady, the ball player, was first taken by Mr. H. L. Glazer and he was succeeded by Mr. James Mul- lins. The members of the cast work- ed hard in making this play a suc- cess, which it was, as stated by many of the critics who were present. There was some talk of taking this show on the road but as "the cast could not very well get away from their other duties, this had to be abandoned. At the second benefit dance given by e club, February 2, 1923, Frances allory acted as chairman, assisted by Ben Kordsmier, Hugh Kearns, Dan Leahy, Marian Lensing, Marie Ma- honey, W. B. He-bert, Marie Graham anti Ed Massar. The food sales given March 17 was in charge" of the following commit- tee: Virginia Rogoski, chairman; Elizabeth Trapp, Rose Mary Tu0hey, Rose Bernier, Ruth Church, Marie Helm, Christine Hanson, Elizabeth Kelly, Wilhelmina Hart, Margaret Powers and Marion Lensing. Pays Old Bills and New Debts Something over $900 has been raised through these efforts and the funds used by the club iv carrying on its work in the parish. An unpaid debt of $50.50 of.tlm defunct Cecilian money was easily raised at the first vaudeville show. Then came the Or- phans' picnic. Something over $260 was cleared on the "Noise and Toys" booth at the picnic and turned over to the Orphanage. In the parish itself two new holy water founts purchased and placed at the two side entrances of the Cathedral and the club contributed one-half of the pur- chase price on a new piano for the Cathedral Hall. Some literature for distribution among converts was also purchased. Fh)ral offerings have been sent the Right Reverend Bishop on Easter and Christmas and the Semin- arians at St. John's Seminary were remembered at Christmas time, as was also our Spiritual Adviser, Rev. Father Moran. Membership Starting with something over forty nembers the elub now has, by actual count, 292. A good number of these are really active and every meeting is well attended by a representative assemblage. A total of twenty-one members have dropped their member- ship in the club owing to their ab- sence from the city; six have resign- ed; nine were married, and 71 were dropped from the roll owing to lapse of dues. Officers for 1923 At the last business meeting after an exciting contested election, the following were elected as officers for the ensuing year: Frank Letzig, president; Anthony Rogoski, vice president; Agnes Auderer, secretary; Katie Durst, treasurer; Marie Benton, historian, and James Tuohey, serge- ant-at-arms. The club feels ihat they have chosen wisely and tha success for the coming year is already as- sured if the newly elected will only contribute that hearty and intelligent spirit as officers which they have shown as individual members. "Guardian Boosters" Under Father Moran's direction the C. C. C. has taken up the Apostolate of the Press in a most efficient man- ner. Every Sunday he makes a pul- pit plea for the people to read The Guardian. drawing the attention to some current Catbolic event or events of interest. The Guardian is distributed after each Mass by mem- bers of the C. C. C. The sales have increased weekly and on last Sunday they sold 200 copies, a work which is very much appreciated at The Guardian office. TREASURER'S REPORT OF C. C. C.
