The little society organized with 20 nnembers, three years ago, has grown to oe a potent factor in the lives of many AnnArbor girls. It is a place where all meet on the common ground of womanhood. It is a helpful sisterhood, with no lines drawn by money, position or education. It is a helpful sisterhood, " each giving to the other's need, each helping on the other"s best," and all are learning'to "preach the gospel of f riendliness." In looking over the records of these three years, we lirid tliat the growth in capabïlity and usefulness of some of our young women has been remarkable. Somewho knewalmost nothing of these things at fir-t are now both ready and competent to lead a religious meeting, take charge of an entertainment, manage a committee, or do almost anything whieh is put into their hands, and have a much larger view of life than before. The growth in this respect has been very marked during the past year. Our work lias been a quiet one, but we are trying to do for the young women of our city that which the Y. M. C A. aims to do for the young men- to niake life worth while - better worth the living. During our iirst year we tried hard to coax girls in for a socia hour each week, but in vain. During the past six weeks, 150 have taken ad v-antage of the Tuesday evening's open ooms. The number of afternoon caliere during the year has been 2,110. 15o vomen have asked us for work, and we ïave found employment for 55 of these. Including the Sunday meetings, business meetings, etc. the attendance has been 5,325. This shows to some extent iow our work has broadened since the oeginning. Go down our streets some pleasant evening, and as you pass the scores of young women you ineet.think whether we do not ne d j ust such a cosy place as our assoeiation room in Ann Arbor. Look into the rooms on Tuesday evening and see if it is not apprecia"ted. , , We hope to organize a girls' branch. Do you care to look into the problem of what will become of the young girls who are on our streets every evening, if they are not given higher standards of life"? Who is fltted better to do this than the Y. W. C. A., if she had a few more workers and a little more money to use in this way ? Do you know tb at one brisrht snrl. neglected during the ast years, is even now being the rum f manyof our little girls, some of them rith iis'good a home as your own ? Will ou help the Y. W . O.
