Methodist social circles will be active this week entertaining delegates to the Rock River Conference of the Methodist Church which convenes here tomorrow and will be in session throughout the week. The First Methodist Church will be the center of all the functions and some attractive entertainments have been arranged for the members of the conference. Without a doubt the most inviting announcement on the program is the organ recital to be given Wednesday afternoon at four o'clock in the church by Mrs. Kathryn Howard Ward, organist of the First church. Mrs. Ward has an international reputation and music critics agree that she has no superior in this country. Needless to say, the church will be filled long before the concerts starts. Another interesting feature of the conference meeting will be the reunions that will be held throughout the week. Many of the ministers who will attend are graduates of either Garrett Biblical institute or Northwestern university. In many instances they have completed courses in both schools. This week they will have the pleasure of meeting former classmates and renewing acquaintances with former Evanston friends, many of whom they hae not seen since they were students here. For this reason the conference committee could not have named a more suitable place than Evanston for the holding of their sessions. Mr. W. E.
