Hostesses for the meeting were Gladys Hightower and Marydean Motz. Registrar Mary Beth Lozo announced two new members, Beth Whitley of Seguin and Mary Elizabeth Horn of Austin. A report was given on the State Conference. The chapter won first place in Colonial Heritage, first in Pocahontas Scholarship, first in New Junior Members, first in Total New Members and second in Public Relations. Members attending the conference were Jewel Kirkham, Mary Beth Lozo, Vesta Lee and Elizabeth Deden. Helen Sterns National Defense chairman gave an interesting report on the military and the United Nations. In her program on Colonial Churches, Mary Beth Lozo covered several states. In Virginia, each new settlement became a parish. The church kept all records on land as well as family records until 1770. The Pilgrims established a religious minority. The Huguenots were a middle class educated people whose social life revolved around the church. In Massachusetts, the Massachusetts Bay Company governed over 2000 subjects.
