WOMAN'S International Council five years ago. There can be no doubt that the desire ot the German Committee of Arrangements to invite a just proportion of speakers from the It American Council is keen and sincere. is not improbable that the letters of invitation will have been received prior to our Executive. Then there must be a canvass to ascertain who among the invited can go. If, for any, it should prove impossible, then again, there will be an opportunity to nominate available substitutes. It is evident that the program for the approaching Executive (aside from the charming social entertainments which will be arranged for it, and the brilliant evening of public exposition with which it will entertain the public) will hold work enough of sufficient interest to induce the members of the Executive from far and near to meet in this fair city of the Middle West. Already it is known that the indefatigable President of the Council, Mrs. Mary Wood Swilt, who on Council business has already crossed the continent four times wTithin the last ten months, will make another long journey again from San Francisco to preside in person.
