He covered the areas of books, paper, photographs, paintings, furniture, silver, metal, glass, ceramics and clothing. He displayed and explained the use of several products on the market. A question-and-answer session followed the presentation.

Rodgers gave the treasurer's report and Billie Alderman gave the flag moment. Clark read the constitution moment. Hostesses were Dottie Glover and Gladys Brownlee.
