It was agreed to take up disaster relief, of which R. G. Tarrant hM been appointed chairman. Mr. Tarrant reported the personnel of  his committee: Boyce R. Gantt, of Monetta; W. ll trop Brodie, of Kitch-ings Mill and Salley; Rev. John Owens, White Pond; M. F. Bush, of Ellenton; George H. Leitner , of Graniteville and D. M. George, of Aiken. Mr. Tarrant spoke of disaster in Red Cross terms, and said that money and plenty of it can be secured for disaster relief, but the important thing is having a dependable committee who on short notice can wisely and justly administer the relief.  Mrs. R. H. Wilds made an excellent talk in which she congratulated the chapter in taking tho wise stand of concentrating on the two objectives, home service and disaster relief,             —  —   -   ..
