was the 'speaker for the Decem

Lakey spoke to the members at
the Woman’s Club Building in
Bryan. His topic concerned the
proposed revisions of the exist

haven’t been altered since 1911.
The revision of these laws is a
part of the legislature program
of the Texas division of the
AAUW for this year.
Lakey is at present a member
of the American Public Health As

of the Association of Food and

area. His last visit was in 1947
on the stage of Guion Hall.

Another was the effect it may
