The Cap and Bells Club was organized for the development of wit and humor, and for the study of the drama, music, languages and kindred subjects.
The pointed cap, wand and bells of the Jester form its emblem, and unusual dramatic and musical talent characterizes the membership list, so that the programs during the sixteen years of the club's existence have been of great excellence.
Section work, always an indication of progress, has received much earnest attention, and has proved a marked success during 1918-1920.
The study of Art, under Mrs. J. H. CRABBE, of Household Economics, under Mrs. J. A. KUYKENDALL, of Literature, including California authors, with Mrs. Jesse WHITED, of French with Mrs. J. K. PLENCZ, bridge with Mrs.Marshall HARRIS, and modern dancing with Mrs. A. J. ROSSI as chairman, added knowledge and variety, broadening, also, the outlook and self-expression of the members. Mrs. M. H. HEYNEMANN was chairman of an excellent Red Cross Section during 1918.
The Cap and Bells Orchestra, with Mrs. B. Frank HOWARD as leader, preceded by Mrs. Charles KER, furnishes delightful numbers for programs, and is of much advantage to the members composing it.
The dramatic work has been in charge of Miss Mae F. O'KEEFE, during 1918-1920.
