GREAT CHANGES PLANNED

The Women's Political Science Club
of Portland came to life last week af
ter hibernating for the Summer, and
let out a lusty yell.
The members of the club. declare its
swaddling clothes are too tight and frot
in fasiiion. In other words, the
Women's Political Science Club is grow
ing, and having grown "a tolerable
bit" already, is going to shake off some
of the old ties that bind the ties of a
club constitution now found too inade
quate for its own good.
At the meeting of the club last Tues
day at Central Library the members,
chafing under the restrictions of a two-year-old
garment, took steps to "grow
up" and at the meeting to be held this
coming Tuesday at the Library In room

Rule Gown Tried On.
The initial "fitting" was had amid a
conference of constitutionalist modistes
and a little combustible oratory. The
result was the club decided a new ward
robe would be made up for use about
next January, when the club holds its
annual election of officers.
The Women's Political Science Club
was organized two years ago and its
purposes were to educate women voters
and women who ought to vote and to
stir up a livelier feminine interest in
the body politic and the civic condition
of the communty. Economcs, current
events and politics from a non-partisan
standpoint play a big part in their ef

Modestly the club hopes by its efforts
to lend its mite of strength in bring

The club constitution worked out two
years ago, which provided for an un
usually large number for a quorum to
do business, was found a handicap by
some of the members and at the re
vival of the activities last week those
who were in favor of remodeling the
constitution scored a victory in getting
the movement under way.
Mrs. Sharp Jiow President.
Prior to taking up plans for recon

unanimous regrets. Mrs. Rockwell an

At the meeting Tuesday afternoon at
2:30 o'clock Mrs. Mattie C. Rhoades
will address the club on "Should Capi

club keeps a standing invitation to the
public to interest itself in the club and
attend the meetings.

Struck and Robbed.
PARIS. Sept. 7. A Scottish visitor
to France, though with the un-Scottish
name of John Siem, has been the vic
tim of too much confidence.
Walking in the Tullerles Gardens,
Siem met two strangers Americans.
At a cafe in Montmartre one of the
Americans asked Mr. Siem for French
change for $500. The Scot produced $500
in French notes, but all he got In
change was a blow In the face from
one American, while the other snatched
the $500 worth of notes and fled.
