The officers of the Mahwah Woman’s Club for the year were announced at the meeting of the evening division. Chairman was to be Mrs. Vivian Skues. Mrs. Otto Ulrichs was chosen as vice-chairman. Mrs. Edward Phair of Owner Rd. was the winner of two tickets to “My Fair Lady” and dinner for two awarded at the meeting. The program of the evening was a slide presentation on Japan given by Mrs. John Scially. Her program focused on the city of Kyoto where she had lived. She said that Japanese women rarely wear hats, except when it rains, they are working in the fields or when they get married. She said that often Japanese women would gather outside the American Church to enjoy the sight of the American women arriving for services wearing their peculiar hats. They found this very entertaining. Mrs. Scially said.
