Text

The Study Club of the Falls Church local of the Fairfax county branch of the N.A.A.C.P. met last Wednesday night in the school house and spent the major part of the evening in perfecting plans to assist in the N.A.A.C.P. drive. Following this Mr. E. B. Henderson gave a lecture on social hygiene. The talk was illustrated by charts loaned by the public health service. Mrs. Harris, of Hall's Hill, and a host of raceworkers attended. Mrs. Harris outlined the work and plans of the National Woman's Republican Club and a committee was appointed to look into the prospects for organization in Falls Church. Major Harrison Tinner of Merrifield was also present.
