The next regular meeting of the Winnetka Woman's club will be held this afternoon, when Mrs. W. D. McKenzie will read a paper on "The Immediate Needs of the Public School." The club opened the season for 1912-13 at a regular meeting, held in the club parlors, on Thursday afternoon, Oct. 3. The program for this meeting was the report of the biennial convention, held at San Francisco in July, a meeting whose delegates represented a federation of 900,000 women. This report was given by Mrs. C. G. Bolte and Dr. Alice Barlow Brown, both having attended the San Francisco meeting. At the close of the report, groups of songs were rendered in a charming manner by Mrs. W. G. Baxter. The social cup of tea was then served under the direction of Mrs. Charles Fuller, chairman of the social committee. The public school teachers of Winnetka and New Trier have been invited as guests to today's meeting, and it is hoped that a large percentage of the membership will be present. The activities at the club house are many and varied. Three different instructors have engaged the use of the club for dancing classes. On Tuesday mornings, beginning last Tuesday, Miss Emma J. Mead will hold a ladies' class, and on Saturday mornings, beginning Oct. 19, Miss Mead will hold two classes for children -one beginners, and one more advanced. These will be classes in aesthetic and gymnastic dancing. On Wednesday mornings, beginning Nov. 6, Mrs. Ruth Coffin Collins will hold two dancing classes for ladies, and on Tuesday afternoon, Oct. 29, Mr. Bournique will begin his series of lessons for children in ball-room dancing. On Monday afternoons Miss Clara Mott gives piano lessons, and on both Tuesday and Friday afternoons the Columbia School of Music has piano and class lessons, and on both Tuesday and Friday afternoons the Columbia School of Music has piano and class lessons, in charge of Miss Kathleen Air. The public school kindergarten and Art Institute classes occupy the departmental room the six mornings on the week. The bowling alley is in first-class shape, and Tuesday and Friday evenings are already engaged by private bowling clubs. Many advance engagements have been made for afternoon and evening affairs and the season promises to be a prosperous one. The waiting list for new members is a long one, and as there is no membership limit, it is expected that many new members will be received the coming year.
