By DOROTHY SYKES

Carbondale is Proud to boast of the fact that one of its Negro women, Mrs. Hannah Woods Hinchley, has been chosen as one of America's leading Negro women.
Mrs. Hinchley is a former student of Southern Illinois Normal University. For many years she taught in he public schools in Indiana and Illinois. After she had taught for some time, she came
to Carbondale and married Mr. Henry Woods, who at that time was one of the city's mail carriers.
Their home was on North Illinois avenue. There Mrs. Woods lived for many years, and while there she made it possible for many of the Negro students to have a place to stay and attend this college
Among the many organizations to which she belongs are the following: The National Association For The Advancement of Colored People, and the Illinois Association of Colored Women. Mrs. Hinchley is now the state president of the I.A.C.W. This Organization, too, makes possible the continuation of many Negro students' education. She is also a very active worker in church work and social work. She is a member of the Eastern Star Edge.
Another project that Mrs. Hinchley help to promote was the nursery school for the Negro children of this city.
Several years after the death of Mr. Woods, she married her present husband. Mr. Wayman Hinchley, who is a state employee of the college.
Her booklet, The Missionary Guide, is used in many Christian organizations of the different Baptist churches.
Mrs. Hinchley's picture appeared in the Crisis magazine this month as one of America's leading Negro women. All the students of this school and of other schools are very proud of Mrs. Hinchley, and we are sure that the whole population is equally as proud.
