AGORA IS PREPARIMG
Women Intend to Publish Pertinent
Facts Concerning the
Mrs. Parsons, chairman of the
Referendum Booklet Committee, gave
a report of progress at the meeting of
the Agora Club Thursday evening.
The questions which are to be an
swered in this pamphlet are now be
ing considered. Though the money
to cover the cost of publishing will
be advanced by the University, it
seemed advisable both as a means of
advertisement and as a matter of
principle that the expense should be
met by the University women. To
this end a committee was appointed
to attend to the collection of fifteen
cents from every woman on the cam
pus. This is a slight individual bur
den and the committee is urging
every woman to do her share.
Portland people are taking a great
deal of interest in the work and sev
eral requests have been received from
them for copies of the booklet when
Miss Guppy told of the work of the
committee of fifteen which is work
ing against the referendum in Port
land. She spoke of the work Port
land women are doing and urged the
University women to take hold in or
der to accomplish results. She also
read a paper on Home Economics,
dealing with the women food inspec
tors of Seattle.
