Work of the Institute Club

What 13 Being Accomplished Among the Poor of the North End and How
It Is Being Done.
SO KEEN and wide-spread is the
Interest aroused by the enthusias
tic little people who, after their
busy year of study and work in the
school, are enjoying such happy hours
of fun and frolic in the "Toy Shop"
in preparation for presentation Mon
day, Tuesday and Wednesday at the
Heilig, that many people are inquiring
"What is the People's Institute?" and
"What is the Institute Club, for the
benefit of which this opera is to be
The Institute Club is an organization
whose membership consists of some
250 women f this city who are united
for the purpose of conducting non
sectarian social settlement work, the
object of which is to. extend educa
tional, industrial, social, religious and
friendly aid to the Women and chil
dren within its reach. The- work of
the clnh Is located In the buildlne
known as the People's Institute, at the
corner of Fourth and Burnside streets.
In the midst of tne district recognized
as the North End. The club was or
ganized November 11, 1904. by the
ladies of the First Presbyterian
Church, but its phenomenal growth has
toon placed it upon a non-sectasian
basis. The members of the executive
board of the club are: Mrs. Helen Ladd
"orbect, president; Mrs. T. B. Wilcox,
vice-president; Mrs. J. G. Gauld, sec
nd vice-president; Mrs. William Mac
kenzie, secretary; Mrs. C. E. Ladd,
treasurer; Mrs. George Simmons, chair
man finance committee; Mrs. A. H.
Tanner, chairman woman's department;
Mrs. A. E. Rockey, chairman chil
dren's department; Miss Valentine
The membership of the club consists
of all women who contribute regularly
to the support of the work, either
financially or by active service. The
work is supported by subscriptions and
donations. The work conducted by this
organization consists of educational
and industrial classes for boys and
girls, including a free kindergarten,
sewing school, kitchen garden, house
keepers' class, cooking school, gym
nasium, basket work and other hand
work, story hour, union Sunday school,

These are working mothers, many of
whom can only come occasionally; not
recipients only, but sharers in the
world-wide circle of helpfulness is the
spirit which is inculcated.
- The classes are conducted by ten paid
teachers and 3a volunteer assistants from
among the young women of the city,
whose definite willing service has been
largely instrumental in achieving the suc
cess of this work. What is the need for
work of this kind?
In every city, because of the complex
ity of city life, there is a more or less
large proportion of the population who
represent what may be termed the low
est working class. A- class whose entire
time, strength, energy and interest is
spent in procuring the necessary food,
shelter and clothing for their families,
leaving no residuum of time, strength,
energy or interest for either the physical,
intellectual, ethical, moral or religious
training, of that family. And of this
class there is always a portion who are
unable to obtain even these necessities
without assistance. These are the people
who have never been trained to do any
thing well, either with head or hand, and
the avenues for wage-earning which are
open to them are, therefore, limited.
In many Instances the mother is obliged
to eke out the limited income of the
father by her own efforts, and in many
more instances the mother is left to
fight the battle of maintenance alone,

erty and the progeny of poverty includes
intemperance, immorality, crime and a
host of lesser evils. The sad but Inev
itable truth is apparent that the chil
dren of these homes are bound to grow
up into the same t:lass unless help from
some source' Is offered to them.
In most cities this class is largely made
up of foreigners. And when we know
that each 12 months is bringing to our
country 1,000.000 of these people we be
gin to realize the responsibility which
rests upon every church, every Institu
tion and every individual to lend their
aid in providing for them just these
things which we have adopted a3 the aim

When the test for genuine goodness
and piano value is made by an un
biased and competent person the deci
sion is Invariably given to the New
Scale $425 Eilers a piano that cannot
be equalled elsewhere for much less
than double the club price of $292.
To sum it all up. we have waited
planned and experimented, sparing no
expense for years to bring out this
piano, to excel all other $425 pianos,
and we are safe now In saying that
we have succeeded.
CAREFCL PLANNING AND
Nearly five years ago, in a real
estate news item to be exact, on Janu
ary 24, 19.14 The Oregonian said:
"The southeast quarter block at
Thirteenth and Northrup streets, has
been bought by Eilers Piano House.
On this property a three-story brick
building will be erected. A large,
three-story frame structure now on
the ground will be moved over to the
Northrup side of the lot and devoted
to factory purposes. Experimental
work toward building pianos has been
carried on by this firm at the present
warehouse at Thirteenth and Marshall
streets, and the new factory will be
completely equipped for the manufac
ture of the 'Eilers piano.'"
Thus the Eilers piano has developed
into an instrument that we can point
to with personal pride and say to any
one and especially the most critical
musician there It is, our greatest
effort to give more than a dollar's
value for every dollar invested. Criti
cize it examine it carefully, give its
action the most severe test. Judge its
pure, singing-tone quality in fact,
find one weak point. This criticism
we ask of all.
We have in the New Scale $425
Eilers Club Piano an instrument that
always welcome at the People's Institute,
where observation of the actual work
will furnish a much more adequate un
derstanding than written words could
