Hurgess Song -4 OirK Choir The miignrine hcelion of (bo Io Iim Angelen Kvetiing Herald of March 7th contuins nn article rlr-criptivr of tho latest dance taken up by Lok An geles nml San Francisco society, something entirely different from tho so-called "rag" dances. It is a so cial dance primarily, and though con taining n few fancy blcps nnd figures, is not difficult to master. The Wilcox xlid Is the name, the dance having been comjiosed by MLsh Jane Heers for Kiln Wheeler Wilcox, who has added fcomo oints nnd dnneed it nt n number of funcliom given in her honor. Chnliff, one time winch of the MetrnMlitau ballet, complimented the iwetess very highly ujon tho Wilcox glide. The muslo for the dance was composed by Professor Ilorher, and several Medford ladies already have copies in their music cabinets. Mrs, J. V. MncClntchio in trodneed tho dance nt nn informal home party recently nnd it imme diately "mnde n hit." Following arc the steps: Position Ilegular ballroom pod lion, ljidies' part first step-right, foot to right side, point, step right foot in buck of left, step left to left side, .step right foot in front of left two measures. Second step- ''Hop slide"-hop on left foot, Mide right lo to right side, bringing heels together. While, the woman ii dancing this solo, her part ner continues to keep the time and ihythm of the dance, or to dnnee nfter her, but without taking hold of her hands until the beginning of n new measure or until a lime indicated, when he rejoins the lady. Third Step "T two-step turn," slide, right, left, right, left, turn hulf way again to make a complete tutu two measmes. HeK'nt all from beginning. Tho lady's partner goes through the snme steps, beginning with tho op posite foot, however. Prof. Chnliff nays "The Wilcox Olide," "The One Step," "Tho Frisco Walk," Iheso are. some of tho new dances of the moment. They nre not difficult if one has n good sense of rjthm and the love of dancing. With out these two factors no one can dnneo well, und most people who lack rhythm und tho joy of living never wnut to dunce anyhow." If tho ludv uses a scarf the effect is prettier and more graceful, There- will ho special services at the Episcopal church, Palm Sunday, March 10, nt 7:30 a. m, Mr. Fish will sing "Tho Palms," Flulo ohli gnto by Mrs, Merman of Now York and Mr. Middleborgor will sing "St. Antlii'ins," assisted by tho choir.

Two rooms arc how com fortably furnished nnd tbey were well appreciated Saturday, March 15, when a chafing dih suprfcr was served to Indies, especially for the convenience of business women who work Saturday evruing. Wednesday the society will eater tain the Merchants' Association, through whose aid the plan of a rest room has been successfully carried nut. Tho popularity of tho Ilest Room has compelled the furnishing of an other room. Tho manual training de partment of the high school mado a splendid llbrnry table for use here.

They will servo coffee, pie and sandwiches besides a sub stanlal concoction on the chafing dish. Let all who aro Interested take advantage of this chance to visit the rooms. HOME ECONOMICS How would you equip a model laundry What is tho chemical aualysls ot soap! Give the test which Indicates which, bluing will roak'o your clothes yellow? Does the wicker basket lend Itself to proper sterilization? T These and scores of other Important questions were an swered at the meeting ot the homo economics department on Wednesday of this week. Tho chemistry ot the household, especially In connection with the laundry, or the cleaning and restoring of textiles, proved an thing but a commonplace subject. Uy a very clever test those present were shown the effect of an alkali on ani mal and vegetable fibres as found In wool and cotton. That bad Iron rust stains on cotton or linen can be re moved was ulso demonstrated satis factorily. So much of real benefit comes out at each meeting of thU department, the members feel tbey cannot ufford to miss any ot the pro grams. The real object ot a public nottco of these meetings Is to Indi cate to the women of Medford the na ture of tho work undertaken and ex tend an invitation to them. In all of the Women's club movement In tho country tho home ecouomtcs is the strongest department. Magazlues und newspapers mention trequeutty their share In tho real activities of the. world. It will not long be the caso that tho college womon aud thoso with u broader outlook on life uro the only ones to realize the dig nity ot home-making as a profession. Mrs. J. U, Fleming, prominent In tho State Federutlou of Women's clubs ot Ohio on a recent visit to Los Augeles related in clear, terse lan guage what tho' women ot Cleveland aro doing lu social service, explaining In detail tho workings ot tho break fust kitchens In the schools, which huvo been operated three or four years In tho pooror districts, with tho aid and endorsement ot the mu nicipal authorities, and saying that statistics show a gain In the scholar ship of children supplied In this way with proper nourishment ot sixteen per cent. The cost of these meals It four cents each. Sho also told ot Ida fly swatting campaign, Inaugurated by tho federation and the city govern ment, the latter paying a bounty of ten cents a quart for flies during the spring season. Tho long hatpin pro nlbltlon also was a result of the work of the women's clubs of the city. Tho peoplo of Portland wero given last week a real demonstration on the reducing of high living costs by In telligent buying. The three day ap ple lo was the result of the efforts of the home economics department of the Woman's ctub. "Duy them by the box" was the slogan and tbey certainly did. It was a great success, and the apple sales of the city worn doubled. All the merchants of thu city claimed they did a greater busi ness in apples than ever before In the history of the city. "The apple sale was only an Incident to the broad character of the further investigation that we propose to make along sim ilar lines. We started out to Impress people that the buying qt foods should be confined to fair quantities Instead of small lots, and. thanks to the press, we believe we have done so In a largo measure," said Mrs. Wilson, chairman ot tho committee. "The lesson taught to the housewives ot Fortlaad ought to be a priceless one, as tho demonstration showing what can be dene with the apple ap plies with equal force to other dally supplies." In tho Club News section of the Sunday edition of the leading Le Angeles paper, there is an exeellent photo of Mrs. Garrett, treasurer of the Friday Morning club. Mm. Gar rett annually handles $18,009 and bi making a record for financial man agement. As a result of her training In mathematics which she excelled In as a teacher, she carries on this very Important and accurate work with great credit to herself and Is an Im portant factor In the movement started for building a large modern club house for the Friday Morning club, banquet ball and the whole equipment ot an up to date club. It's an Inspiration to hear of the untiring energies ot sister club women and to know ot the many avenues ot use fulness they are entering. The won derful change In the recognition they are receiving is proof ot their real work. The program for tho Good Govern ment and Civic department of the Greater Medford club on Tuesday, March ISth, will be as follews: Parliamentary Drill. The rtecall Judge E. E. Kelly. Current Erents Mm. Hoon. Mlulm'um Wage Law Mrs. Schus ter. Minimum Wage Law as It Affects the Consumer Mr. H. E. Gore. This will be an especially Inter esting meeting, dealing with the vital things of the day, and every woman In Medford should take advantage of the opportunity to hear these things discussed. All are urged to atteod. Meeting at 2:30. I00K REVIEWS HELEN C. OALB. "Dawa O'lUru," by Edna Ferber. Published by Stokes Company. Those who have read "The Stories ot a Traveling Saleswoman," by Edna Ferber, that have appeared from tlmo to time In the American Magazine, will welcome this com plete novel by the same author. Edna Ferber knows how to tell n story delightfully. Her first para graph usually attracts attention. Sho acquaints you with some breezy, capable sort ot person at the outset and as you read on through the story you are moved to tears one moment and are laughing at somo unexpected humor the next. Her women nre women of the workaday world, capable, clever, lovabto. Uor men uro the men we meet every day, but she analyzes them and shows us their best side. Her characters may appeal, the ro mance may please, but It is the hu man Interest vibrating from every page that makes her stories whole some. If you want to read a good book, merely for recreation, read "Dawn O'Hura Tho air) "Who Laughed," and yqu will find an Interesting, sweet love story that will leave ypu happier for having read It. a "Sister Carrie," by Theodore Dreiser.
