WOMEN'S CLUBS AND. WORK
xSorne Men's Opinions .
About Women's ' Clubs.
. Excepting the United States Congress,
I know of no body of men or women
representing so .much of Intellect and
newt, ao much of culture and mnuenoe,
- and ao many of the highest hopes and
noblest possibilities of the American
people as the General . Federation .of
Women's clubs. -
"'"The Industrial revolution which trans
ferred many activities from the home
, to the factory has created new social
conditions and new problems or adjust'
-ment It Is fitting that women who
hare now been freed from the burden
laid on them by the age of homespun
. ahould devote aome of the new leisure
thus bestowed to the solution of the
new problems thus created. '
cjtlooks as- if --women's clubs might
take a leading"" TaTt 1n the-reat-work
. of industrial improvement and in estab
lishing right relations between em
ployers -and employes. As wives they
- sympathise with, the perplexities of the
former, and aa women they sympathise
with the hardships of tha latter. With
a hand upon each they, may do' much to
reconcile both. .
President of American Institute of So
cial Service. ., .
My hlet,pblnt of contact with
women's clubs has been in the-cauaa of
pure food. In thla matter I found them
the most efficient organisations now ex
isting. They ar enthusiastic hard
working, persistent and effective; I
" fully believe that whenever -the women
of this country, as, for Instance, through
the Federation of Women's clubs of
America, shall demand legislation regu.
latins: Interstate trafflo In adulterated
fooa afflr-ailliaa, that Isglslatlna. will
be forthcoming. When the . women s
clubs are fully aroused In this, matter.
it will not be possible any longer for
.organised selfishness to block the
wheels of legislation for the purpose of
securlns- an additional profit in trade.
"The Federation-of -Women's r olubs Of
America ia in favor of pure food legis
lation because It means honesty, free--dom
f ron danger to- the-family, aecurlty
for the proper spending of the money
for household needs and a general lm-

I appreciate so deeply tha effective
.work that the clubs have dona through
out the country in arousing an Interest
on the subject of child labor that I am
glad of an opportunity to express frlm
appreciation. No better illustration of
. the fine educational work and high
moral purpose of the women's, clubs, aa
. represented In tha General Federation,
'""can be found than in their' persistent
' and discriminating atudy of the prob
lem of child labor in the United States.
.1 have found in all the states where
the clubs are active and federated that
--the ground ia prepared for progressive
. legislation on thla subject. This is a
great work for the' American home, and
"7 the arousing Of tile intelligent-Interest
of thousands of women, who otherwise
would not know of the great evils of
child labor-ls-'a worthy-contribution to
1 American civilisation. ,
SAMUEL. MoCUNB LINDSAT.
Secretary National ChUd Labor .Committee.
' Tha women'a . clubs : throughout tha
- country have taken an active part, dur
ing the last three years, in the child
labor movement. Tha General Federa
tion, of Women'a cluba, at Ita biennial
convention, held at St. Louis, Missouri,
last May, for tha information of its
constituent members;- adopted xesolu
- tlons In favor of a definite national pro
gram throughoutthe United - Statea.
These resolutions represent, so far as
we are aware, the only. attempt to state
a definite national program of child
labor legislation based upon a study of
' all legislation and efforts to secure its
enforcement up to the present time.

Your Little Boy
And My Little Boy. ' " '
" Do you remember that day when they
- marched aturdlly off to the '"big school." J
i how .you andJJllpped around the other
aide of the block and watched until the
..' great door closed on themt- Then we
went home and put the houae in order
ard aet their playthings In rowa againat
- the wall. . They were not babies any
more: they war bat boys. . We watched
their aspirations rise from driver of
sprinkling cart to the motorman on
the streetcars, anil tthrn thnlr problems
were very hard we used to sit up night
to study long-forgotten theories to help
them in their work next day.
We aald: "We will keep them hdnest
and pure, and the world will be better
for their having lived In It." .
One day they met a boy who had
found a package of cigarette papers.
He put aome dried clover blossoms In
one and rolled It up and lighted It and
each took, a puff. It waa great fun.
It waa ao like being men. We were
onty women, so they did not tell us.

stock is f 6,000. This institution has a
aurplua. of ' 9250.000; It has deposits
amounting to t47t,57; It haa Interest
and exchange to the amount of 16.311.
And' it baa women In posit tans of "re

Its cashlerls a woman, the assistant
"cashier is a woman, and thcjpe book
keepers are women. . . . ,
There , Is ..fond torr thought in this
array of figures and femininity.
Incidentally, it might be remarked
that-ln Iewa-there-are-at- present 14
women bank Cashiers and 1 1 women
assistant hsnk cashiers. And .-these
banka are solvent, sound and substan
tial, and make money. Statistics, more
over, show that no bank directed by a
woman In Iowa ever closed its doors
through failure. '
- But thla la not all. ' No woman official
of any bank anywhere in the country
haa ever betrayed her truat -to the ex
tent of a single penny. -.
It baa frequently been remarked that,
even though evidence may seem againat
It, the woman, after all. la more honest
In trivial thlnga than the average man.
Perhapa tha other extreme likewiae
proves true; perhapa ahe la honeater In
the big things and the important .things

It Is certain that she is more consci

of honor and commercial integrity.
Manipulation In buslnesa affairs., that
men call shrewdness, she calls dis

She may not prove brilliant In busi

plying to. the question, "What doea a

a means' of - getting 'thlnga. I would
not try to answer this question of what
a club gets. It would take too long. It
geta too much. It gets all it can carry,
all It can abaorb. . If it ia a. very little
sponge, with all Ita pores ' open wide
to receive, having given wholly of Itself
to the federation, it can go home wltu
enough to keep everything ' that ap
proaches It ' full , of inspiration. Join
tha federation, and find out for yourself
what you can get out of It, and do not
forget that -much, dependa upon - your
own capacity for receiving. -
."Ask rather, What does a club lose
by federating? ' Well, flret. your dues.
They are gone sure. Whether it is loss
or not . la for you - to- consider. Tour
club also loses a self-sufficient-feeling-
which keeps you when you have It
from growing. ' .
"On the other hand; what doea a club
lose by not federating? Tou lose a
width of view a broad apirlt, an Inter
eat In your state. Don't you know, how
your - heart jump when you are In
foreign , land and run across tha St
and Stripes flying In-an . alien air? It
is the symbol of your whole great coun
try,, not Just your little town. .-.
. ."So pride In your state work, your
own interest in it. Is lost If you . have
no part In it Be a member of ita body
and thus become a help and a support,
to the larger work, as well as the small

every senae." -.
