The Thursday night club that meets on Monday

Every week six Minneapolis businessmen plan to get to- gether on the following Thursday evening to discuss their hobby-- woodworking. Included in the schedule of events is a talk by a professional craftsman-- one who makes his living teaching the principles of operating a table saw and using a hand plane. And, if you investigated, you'd probably find that the date-- next Thursday-- is circled in red on the calendars of all five in each of their offices.

Too many TOYS? Or not the right ones?
