Proceed Will Oo Towitrd Tablet
In Woman's Building.
THE interest manifested and sup
port given by the P. E. O. sister
hood to all things "educational" are fa
miliar to many, and possibly nothing
is more noteworthy in this particu
lar than the $500 tablet pledge to
the women's building. University of
Chapter A of Portland made one of
the first gifts of 25. Later chapter
C also made a 25 contribution. The
idea grew steadily, but it was not
until it reached chapter M. a small
but very active group, that the am
bition took root to place a taolet on
the women's building bearing the
name of P. E. O.
The enthusiasm registered by chap
ter M quickly made its way into Us
sister chapters, with the result that
not only in Portland, but over the
state as well, all P. E. O. have joined
hands in helping to crown the un
dertaking with success. To this end
a two-day card party will be given
at Laurelhurst clubhouse, March 80
and 31, the days being Wednesday
and Thursday of Easter week. Sixty

Five Big Y. W. C. A. Clubs
Social and Educational Work Cov
ers Important Field.
THE innovation of parties at the
Young Women's Christian associ
ation, with young men "among those
present," has gone a long way toward
making successful the social affairs
of the five industrial clubs of the
association whose activities comprise
one of the big pieces of work being
accomplished througn the sponsor
ship of this organization.
The young men, who are procured
through the Young Men's Christian
association, welcome the parties and
rarely fall to accept. Recreational
games, relay races, the dancing of the
Virginia reel, informal dancing and
the serving of refreshments make up
an evening's entertainment. Delight
ful return parties have been given
by the men.
The industrial clul) Idea was
launched less than two years ago,
when three clubs were formed with
a total membership of 40. Today
there are five large clubs Four L,
Bide-a-Wee, Blue Bird, Golden Links
and Swastika and in the activities
of these organizations the lives of
at least 25U0 young folk have been
Meetings are held every Tuesday
evening at 6 o'clock, beginning with
an informal supper served by the
women of the various organizations
of the city. Among those who have
given their services are women's as

church and the First Congregational
ch- -eh, Philathea class of the White
temple, Corinthian circle of the First
Methodist Episcopal church. Pi Beta

short talks after supper on current
events and character standards, and

given a series of courtesy talks cov
e.ing introduction, conversation, let
ter writing, table etiquette, courtship
and marriage. From 7:30 to 9:30 there
are classes In subjects chosen by the
girls themselves. When eight or more
girls ask for a class in any subject,
a teacher is provided. Classes are
being conducted in millinery, dress
making, knitting, crocheting, basket
ry, postermaking, needlecraft, dra
matic express'on, gymnasium and
"Self Governing for Self Expres
sion" is the motto of the clubs, and
the chief aim not only is to help the
girls to help themselves, but to give
an opportunity to get away from the
daily routine of life. During the hol
idays a new baby was outfitted by
one club, another visited and took
gifts to the 47 elderly women at the
county farm and another took care of
a needy family.
The annual banquet and meeting1 of
all five clubs will be held tomorrow

and the aspirations of the clubs will
