100 Years Ago: 1920

The YWCA  girls are not letting the present campaign for funds, which opened Monday, be entirely to the interested and philanthropic persons, who have generously volunteered to conduct the campaign and do the bulk of the work. They all appreciate too well the benefits of the association; they are infused with the spirit of fellowship and ready  to extend a helping hand every other girl. Individuals and in teams organized in every factory and in some of the mills, the girls are  helping in the work of raising $1,300 with all the energy and enthusiasm they can muster.
