The officers of the Field Motor Company of Auburn are feeling much pleasure over the successful trial trip of their new touring car this week. This car, which the company has been building the past winter attracted much attention on the streets of Auburn. The car is a large one of the tonneau type, finished in red with brass trimmings and is upholstered in rich leather. Altogether it is one of the most beautiful cars ever seen in Auburn and the officials claim that it is easily the swiftest of them all. Great credit is due Mr. Edward Fields for the success of this machine, Mr. Field is one of the finest machinists of the twin cities and claims to have built the first horseless carriage ever constructed.

This week has been designated National YWCA Week and the Lewiston-Auburn YWCA will be among the 5,000 Clubs located across the U.S. and 80 countries to observe the occasion. Programs and problems change from year to year, but the mission of the YWCA is not so different from what it was 102 years ago, and that is to meet the needs of the women and girls and their families. An organization is only as good as the people in back of it, and, in Lewiston and Auburn, there are 20 dedicated staff members who work daily to make the YWCA an important service agency for the Twin Cities and the surrounding communities.
