    Popular Lectures at the Art Institute and Other Events of the Polish Arts Club

    (Edited by the program committee and issued as often as necessary for members and friends of the Polish Arts Club).

    The club was organized for the purpose of: (a) Promoting fellowship between Poles and Americans interested in the fine arts. (b) Providing and facilitating its members' enjoyment of the arts.

    The program committee spared no effort in arranging all programs to meet with our purpose. It appreciates the cooperation of members, and welcomes your frank criticism and suggestions. It would like to plan programs six or more months in advance, but this cannot be done until financial support is greater.
