The city ot Pittsburg has recently
staged a pageant in commemoration
of the civic and social betterment
that has taken place progressively In
that populous steel district.
One hardly realizes that such pro
saic and materialistic things as bath
houses, child labor, Juvenile Courts,
playgrounds, recreation programs,
associated charities, legal aid, etc,
can be successfully carried out In
poetical form and symbolism to
things of beauty and gripping power,
yet that is what has been accomplish
ed in this civic pageant written by
Thomas Wood Stevens and presented
for the twenty-fifth anniversary of
the Civic Club ot Allegheny County
by the School of Drama of the Carne
gie Institute of Technology, Pitts
burgh. As the curtain rolls up, tho city,
as a Smith, is found sitting asleep 1b
a chair, bound therein with many
golden chains. Near him " sit his
evil counsellors, Worldly Power,
Pride, Complacency and Greed.
Below them are symbolic figures
of Government, Social Science, Art
In groups throughout the masque
The Mokihana Current Events Club
that meets . every other Monday
morning for an hour has proved a
decided success which was rather a
surprise even to those most interested
in getting the club started.
The plan adopted is the ono that
is in vogue in the Women's Club In
Berkeley that has proven to bo Buch
a vital factor in club life there as
well as elsewhere on the mainland.
Each member takes a single sub
ject and gives a five minute talk
thereon at each meeting. If more
than one person chooses the same
topic, they study together and divide
up the work.
Such subjects' as latest Book Re
views, New Poetry and Drama, Haw
aiian Legislature news, Child Welfare,
China and the Orient, European
Affairs, Domestic Relations In the U.
S. A., the Banking World, and Immi
gration are all talked about at each
meeting. The same person takes
her particular topic straight for six
months running and thus tho Club
will have "experts", more or less, on
many vital present-day subjects.
From time to time may appear a
brief summary of a few of the things

in idleness, the plague stricken, the
.These groups from time to time
speak and as they do the spotlight is
thrown on them. They are despon
dent and miserable until the Civie
spirit, a beautiful figure clad in
white appears in their midst. She
and her ministers then hold open
court as it were and listen to the
woes and wrongs of mankind. The
unclean one (with no water), the
stricken one, (the tubercular), the
children begging for playground
space, idle youth, youth shackled to
crime, the evicted one all lay their
piteous claims at the feet of Civic
Meanwhile Smith's four evil coun
sellors, Worldly Power, Prido, Com
placency and Greed are trying to run
the city and are using their influ
ence to keep Smith asleep, r.nd chain
ed with the golden bands, so that
they may do as they will.
In face ot their opposition Civic
Spirit calls to her aid Government,
Social Science, Education, Art and
Charity who each in turn listen to
the piteous pleas of the different
groups and start reforms that finally
bring peace and joy to all alike.
All characters have special cos
tumes, save those of the four evil
counsellors who wear conventional
The tableau of Yuth, a beautiful,
innocent young girl chained to crime,
a bearded, leering fellow, is startling
in its presentation, with aversion on
the face of each, and each striving
vainly to break the fettered bond.
Civic Spirit steps in
"And from pale childhood's wrist

five minutes if the speaker has done
a lot of research work from which to
cull her main points.
The result of all this is that each
one is on the lookout for any news
appertaining not only to her own topic
but to all the others, so that she may
be able to pass on articles to her
friends or add a few facts that may
have been overlooked by the others.
The informal discussions that come
up are very Intelligent and show a
wide awake body of women on the
qui vlve to learn all they can of the
current news that is fraught with
euch meaning to the world at large.
Books, magazines, periodicals and
newspapers all are requisitioned to
help the women in their researches.
