Yankton Press & Dakotan
4 Jun 1938 (Evening), p. 6, col. 1
The Yankton Woman’s Relief Corps, at its meeting Friday afternoon, was honored by a visit from the state president of W.R.C. in Nebraska, Mrs. Grace Hamar.
Mrs. Hazel Ollerman, vice president, presided in the absence of the president, Mrs. Blanche Stuelpnagel. Mrs. Hamer was presented to the Corps by Mrs. Helen Royem and gave an interesting talk stressing the continued usefulness of the W.R.C. whose work, she said, is not yet ended.
Mrs. Vina Feldman was installed chaplain to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Mrs. Electa Danforth. She also gave a report of the Memorial Day exercises held by the Corps at the Yankton cemetery. Mrs. Gracy Gurney, past department president, was installing officer.
The members reported 23 sick calls made and $28.50 in relief extended since the last meeting.
Announcements were made of the state convention of W.R.C. to be held at Huron from June to June 9, opening with a reception on Monday evening.
Mr. and Mrs. Warner Imig, of Boulder, Colo., where Mr. Imig is head of the music work in the city schools, and teacher of voice at the University, have arrived for a vacation visit. Mr. Imig is an Yankton for a few days and Mrs. Imig, nee Norma Rapalee, plans to remain for a summer visit at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. N. Rapalee.
Tomorrow Mr. and Mrs. Rapalee and Mrs. Imig will drive to Lincoln, Neb., where Miss Ruth Rapalee will be graduated from the University of Nebraska at exercises to be held Monday morning.
Miss Rapalee has made an outstanding record in scholarship during her work at Nebraska U.
I purchased roughly 25 original issues of the Yankton (South Dakota) Press & Dakotan, dating from 1938 to 1946. I am systematically going through every issue and will be posting the articles that include the names of individuals. I am happy to email full-size scans of any article. Feel free to ask.
