Hendon C.W.L.'s First Birthday

What promises to be a very lively section of the Catholic Women's League celebrated its first birthday at Hendon with its annual meeting on Sunday. It began with sixty members, anti has practically doubled that number now. Besides sewing and knitting garments for the poor and needy, they have adopted a soldier and an airman for whom they provide comforts ; visit the hospitals; help the Youth Club by lending a hand with the catering and refreshments; and soon They hope to have a " Suggestion Centre," which will be a circle where people can come and discuss various subjects.

Mgr. Canon Coote, who presided, was enthusiastic about the work of the Leagtie, which, he said, should exist. in every parish. " You should hammer at everybody's door," he said.

The Hon. Mrs. Bower urged members to study the education question so that they could be in a position to state the Catholic case when refuting T.U.C. misstatements. " Support the Catholic Press," she told them, " and spread good literature by demanding suitable books from the public and other libraries."

Mrs. George Rendel, speaking of the Catholic Women's League Huts for the Forces, said that they have become so famous' that men arriving at a town for the first time invariably ask " Is there a C.W.L. hut here?"

Mrs. Given Wilson (President of the Westminster branch), Mrs. Anderson (Hon. Treasurer of Westminster branch, who was instrumental in starting C.W.L. work at Hendon), Mrs. Swan (Canadian member and co-director 'of the Beaver Club), were among the visitors who were welcomed by the Hendon President (Mrs. O'Reilly).

The Hon. Treasurer, Mrs. Fortens, handed to Mgr. Coote a cheque for £10 10s. towards his church expenses.
