To Educate American Girl.
Th Society of American Woman, In

. ' educational achema which It proposes to
bring before the general federation at
Ita biennial meeting la St. Paul next

Mra. Ulynea." who U prealdeat of the
oulaty of theae expatriated women of
London, - waa formerly a prominent
member of New- York Soroala. In-aa
Interview with a Loadon paper she said:
"It Is an attempt to 4 for the women
of th United States what the Rhodca
cholarahlps are doing for the men.' .
The ecliem Involves an outlay of
several million dollars, aa It la proposed
to take ! ' young women from the
T'ntted State and give them a two or
three year' rouraa at some of the great
)!. unlverelllea. Toward raising
this fund Mrs. Olrne confess- that
the Society of American Women In Loa
n enuld d but little, but she aays:'
W pcl great raauita frum the
cooperation tha General Federation of
Women duns at Ita next conference.
There w ar going to appeal to the
educational committee to aak each atate
to contribute aufnclent funda to enable
each to provide In perpetuity for either
the two or three-year courae."
Th 1(0 American women who form
this Engllah aoclety think they may
Doaaibly be able to raise funda suffi
clent to educate one girl from the lia-
trlct of Columbia, but the greatest In
ducement they offer la that tha yeung
women will hapom honorary members
of the English, society and, while re
ceiving their education, . will have the
benefit of this prestige end chaperon xa
It hardly aeema possible that with
Mrs. Decker's practical aense the time
of . the biennial meeting will be' wanted
In discussing a proposition Ilka thla
In every atate there are hundreds of de
serving young women eager to get an
education, even in tneir own stats uni
versities, -who would bo quite willing
even to be put In th wsy of sarnlng
this education and would obligate them
selves to psy back a loan if It could
be gotten, so thst with theae conditions
existing it Is hardly . likely that th
clubs of th country would b wining
to contribute toward giving already
wall educated women the advantage of
foreign travel and a foreign unlveralty
education. . . - -
it will be . a aueatlon. however, that
will be brought np and it would b well
for any who fnay have in mind at
tending th biennial to be prepared for
It Any action the national body . might
take would not. of course, be binding
upon states, but it would do no harm
to enter a good hearty protest In time.
