Building of the building contained a swimming Pool and a modern gymnasium practically every working girl would be a member. We can get along with our old Library a few years yet. We need a place for our Young girls and Young women to turn to. Where can a homeless girl or a stranger turn to to the y. W. C. A.? with what result she May meet someone there but there Are no rooms she has to go a room ?� she can to afford an apartment nor a hotel room. She Tell have to Gamble on a room from a private Home or a Rooming House. A new y. W. C. A. Building will be a greater asset to our Community than will a new Library or a Nat Atory in e. T.
