"Dear Club Women of Orepon:
One of the greatest needs of the Ore-
icon Federation of Women's clubs Just
now Is a larser membership. If the
object and alms of federation were
ixiorc thoroughly understood, there
would be no shortage of members.
".Since the state federation is a link
between the individual club and the
treneral federation, it is a means of
unifying the work of club women.
The many can accomplish what the
few can not. The fceneral federation
Is the larsest body of organized
women In the United States, whose
aim is the putting of true Amer
icanism into our social, industrial
and political life. This common aim
Is greater than our differences of
party, creed and (reopraphy.
"As the federation, both etate and
national, has well regulated machin
ery, I am asking you to increase its
power.
"Do yon know of some women who
Bilght like to join -your club? Ask
them.
"Do yoli know of some clubs that
BiiKht join the federation?
"If so, waste no time; Bend the In
formation to Mrs. L. W. Hyde, chair

Christian Temperance union in a cen
ter which recently has been estab
lished In the heart of a foreign dis
trict, the residents of which are main
ly from south central Europe, repre
senting nearly all the Slavic peoples
from that district. Teaching English
and the fundamentals of American
citizenship is done here, but in a way
that is quite different in its method
of approach from the practices in
other Americanization centers.
Home teaching of the women of
tbe household is the basis of the
plan adopted by the Woman's Chris
t!an Temperance union. Visiting
teachers who go into the bouses of
the foreign-speaking women teach
them English Birch as they need to
do their marketing and for commu
nication with the trades people in tbe
neighborhood. As the lessons pro
cted, the knowledge of English grows
until the mother arrives at that point
in speaking and understanding that
she stands on an equal plane with
the husband and 'father, who has
learned or is being taught in the fac
tory or shop where he works, and the
children, who are rapidly being
Americanized in the public schools.
In this contribution to the Ameri
canization work of the nation, the
Woman's Christian Temperance union
is meeting in an effective way a .con
dition that is not being so success
fully met by any other organization
or the public schools. Mrs. Lee Dav
enport is the Americanization chair
man for Oregon.
