Members of the Evanston Woman's club are deeply interested in the operetta, which is to be produced in the new club building the first week in December. "Casilda" is the name of the playlet and Mr. A. Mendenhall is the author. The cast will be an exceptionally good one. It will be composed of semi-professional talent. The club members are anxious to make it a success. This statement alone is enough to assure the success of the affair. The same week the operetta is produced there will be a Christmas sale at the club. Here many Evanstonians will find it possible to purchase many gifts delicately made by local society matrons.
