In True Fellowship
Who belongs to the YWCA?
Women and girls of all
occupations, of varying interests, of many religious beliefs, of many
nationalities, of many races--women of widely different backgrounds,
who agree on some things and disagree on others, but who are moving
together toward their goal--"To build a fellowship."
Membership in the Portland
YWCA is open to all women and girls. The fee is $1.00 a year.
Frankly this dollar does not buy anything, but it is a symbol of your
interest and support.
That Old Gang of Mine
"That Old Gang" is
probably just a memory, so why not [join a] new one? Supper clubs
and other groups in the YOUNG WOMEN'S DEPT. mean friends, good times,
and [new] interests. If you're a "toiling Tillie" in a store, office,
factory, or shipyard--"COME OUT, COME OUT, WHERE-EVER YOU ARE."
Come right from work "THE WAY YOU ARE TONIGHT" -- "WITH THE WIND AND

Portland) you'll want to go.

day living, will help you find it.
All The Things You Are
YES--"ALL THE THINGS YOU
ARE"--wife, mother [house]keeper, cook, seamstress, nurse, neighbor,
. . . and still you have the satisfaction of serving a worthwhile
cause. When you serve as a VOLUNTEER on a Y committee or club group,
as a HOSTESS in the lobby or Lunch Box Canteen, or belong to the recreation
CLUB for housewives, you know what it means to sing "MANY HAPPY RETURNS
OF THE DAY."

"IT'S LOVE, LOVE LOVE"--yes,
when you play tennis or badminton you base your score on the word
"Love," and the less skilled you are the more "Love" you get. ("Love"
means "zero.") If you want to become an expert or simply learn
the fundamentals of the game join the [illegible] badminton classes.
Fun and Exercise is the "net" profit.
"MINNIE THE MERMAID" may
not be headline you're angling for but you wouldn't mind a big splash,
would you? Swimming, the exercise that uses all the muscles, is taught
by experts. Whether you know nothing, know a little or know it all
about aquatic maneuvers, the pool is the place to keep afloat with
"ME AND MY SHADOW"--Do you
both agree? If you've been working hard and are a shadow of your former
self, or have been eating too much and yourself is more than your
former shadow, you'll enjoy the normalizing classes and body conditioning
exercises. For poise and [grace] try modern or interpretive dancing.
It's expressive as "THE FLIGHT OF THE BUMBLEBEE"!
