ON THE LIBERALS
Higher atandards of living waa the
keynote of the Mothers' congress meet
ing Tuesday afternoon In the council
committee room of the city hall. The
large room was overcrowded. Reports
were read from the various mothers'
and teachers' circles, whose meeting
are held In the schoolhouaes, and plans
discussed for the National Mothers' con
gress meeting, to be held in Denver
June 10-17. .
The lively discussion that .followed
the principal address of the afternoon
showed that the many mothers and
teachers present were Intensely and
thoughtfully Interested in the aubject of
a finer Idealism for tbe youth of 'Port
land. The principal paper of tbe aeealoa
was read by Mrs. Emma Carroll. If the
mothers and teachers had come 'In an
ticipation of learning aom of the se
crets of tha educators' craft they were
not disappointed. Th speaker made It
plain that high aspiration and eternal
vigilance must be. the price of success
In the teaching art.
Following Mrs. Carroll's address,
many of the women present aroused to
an appreciation of their own- shortcom
ings and those of many others. whom
they might influence, Joined in a 'dis
cussion of practical ways and means of
raising the standards and ideals set be
fore their children and pupils. Mrs. J.
W. Hawkins suggested that a closer as
sociation between the mother surround
ed by wealth and culture and the moth
er compelled to rely somewhat upon the
earnings of her children for the family's
livelihood, might be beneficial to both,
the one learning how to Inculcate the
habit of industry In her charges and
the other how to assimilate culture.
At the close of the meeting the wom
en were 'loath to drop the subject of
parental responsibility, and gathered
Into little groups to talk over among
themselves the Inspiration with which
they expected to go back to their In
dividual life tasks as mothers and
Ists. Chief of Police Cox has again
