The President then spoke on the subject of Scholarships stating that the
Faculty had approached her regarding the advisability of giving a Scholarship to the value of $150.
After considerable discussion it was moved by Mrs Weidenhammer and seconded by Mrs Germann that our Auxiliary provide for this year a Scholarship of $150 – Lutherans only to be eligible, it being the consensus of opinion that this should be the case because the funds of our Auxiliaries come from Lutheran Congregations. Other matters dealing with the Scholarship was to be left in the hands of the Executive Committee together with the Faculty. Carried
Moved by Mrs Huehn seconded by Mrs Mueller that we give $500 to the Seminary Board Carried
Moved by Mrs Wonnenberg seconded by Mrs Mosig that the Laundry Bill and other bills on hand be paid. Carried
Mrs Kalbfleisch moved a vote of thanks to Mrs Hagen for her untiring
efforts during her term of office for the past twenty years, Mrs Hagen on account of ill health being forced to give up her office as Treasurer. We certainly all were sorry to have Mrs Hagen resign but she nevertheless promised not give up her interest in the work.
