The Decora Study Club met at the Victoria Women's Clubhouse on Oct. 9. President Jo Cornstubble called the meeting to order at 10 a.m. and welcomed everyone.
Program chairman Dolly Stokes introduced her husband, Jim Stokes, a West Point graduate. Mr. Stokes gave an early history of West Point and discussed how some of the cadets affected Texas history.

Linda Johnson led the collect, and the pledge to the American flag was led by Jeanette Totah. Federation Counselor Francisca Watts introduced Anne Roddy, who gave the federation report on the history of Texas; she also sang "Rivers," which was delightful.
