Woman's relation to tho wnr hns been tho
grimmest lesson of the present conflict. That
tho women who nre most holplcss In prevent

dens liaB been nn appalling realization. It 1b
tho women who drnln war's bitterest lees,
not only tho Belgian women, whoso homes
have been lcclcd to n great wnsto to make

women of England and Germany, whoso

women. It li thrilling to read of tho construc
tive attlludo tuken by our American women,
while there Is still time, In tho formation of a
Woman's Pence Party, umlor tho presidency
of Jnno Acldams Tho Independent devotes
sovernl pnges to tho Woman's Peaco Move
ment, nnd Rpenklng editorially says (1):
On Sunday afternoon, Jnnunry 10, 3000
women crowded Into the ballroom of tho
Now Wlllard at Washington, D. C. They
formed themselves Into tho "Woman's Pence
niny, mo nrst in tho world. They Issued
a manifesto, unsurpassed, we think, ln power
and mornl fervor by anything that has been
Issued hero or nbroml since tho Great War
began They ndopted a platform rndlcal,
sound, Rtntesmanllke, conBtructle. Though
i not a lino about tho conference appenred
the next morning In five of the six leading
New Yoik newspapers, which found spneo
f(i devote (13 rolumns to tho man-kllllng In
Europo nnd tho alleged reasons why the
I nltod States should Inrrenso her army and
niiy wo think the conference bo Important
that we publish In full the final document
Issued by It, and we urge every ono of our
women renders to Join tho party.
Tho Peaco Party's "Declaration of Princi
ples'' says In part:
We women of tho United States, assembled
In behalf of world pence, grateful for the
security of our own country, but sorrowing
ior mo misery or all Involved ln the present
Btruggle. do hereby band ourselves together
I to ilemnncl that war should ho abolished.
I Wp demand that women bp given a shnro ln
deriding between wnr and peace ln nil the
courts of mwi debate; within the home, tho
school, tho church, tho industrial order nnd
I tho State.
I Protesting nnd Demanding
So protesting and so demanding, wo
1 hereby form oursoKes Into a national or
ganization to be railed tho "Woman's Peaco

passed tho following resolution. "That we
denounco with all the earnestness of which
wo nre capable tho concerted attempt now
being made to forco this country Into still
further preparedness for wnr. Wo desire to
make a solemn appeal to tho higher attri
butes of our common humanity to help us un
mask this menace to our civilisation."

Into the national treasury. Until the ap

Post. Mrs. John Jay White.
Among tho most powerful and vivid arti
cles describing tho war are those written
by a woman, Corra Harris In her "Bravest
of tho Brnvo" (2), sho has summed up very
skilfully tho position nnd temperament of
each of the various nationalities of women In
volved In tho war. Sho writes:
The Belgian women have been the literal
victims. They have been scattered to the four
winds of tho earth. They have been
trampled in the dust by the feet of an Invad
ing army. I have seen women who wero
forced to witness tho execution of their hus
bands, women who ran screaming with ter
ror from their burning homes Into a world
filled with German soldiers. I havo seen
not ono or two, but literally thousands of
them who were famished for water and
starving for bread. I have seen children less
than two years of ago who havo been with
out food for four days, young babes ln their
mother's arms, whoso breasts had been dried
by tho awful terrors through which thoy had
passed. I have seen women accustomed to
every comfort staggering Into a strange land,
without shoes on their feet nnd without n
centime In their pockets.
Ono must entertain the highest ndmlration
for the German women. In a sense, they aro
no less the victims of the Kaiser's army
than the Belgian women. They Impressed
mo as tho greatest women of Europe, the
most pathetic In their bondago to men. They
wero by far the most thoughtful, tho moat
capable, tho most helpless. They had tho
mournful sense of sibyls ln regard to their
position. They were not hopeful, they wero
only patient. . They had the brains of
scholars and philosophers, the seer spirits of
poets. Thoy wero tho slaves of the order
of thlng3 thero. This war Is tho great op
portunity for the women of Germany, And
they have met It with courage. They aro
filling men's places ln every walk of life.
They aro no longer at the bottom, but at
Of all the women In the world nt tho pres
ent moment, what the French woman Is and
what she does are most Important. Of all
the women I have seen, she ls tho least self
conscious. Sho does not think of herself
nt all. She Is the last perfect stroke In this
torrlflo picture a little figure In tho back
ground, standing Ilka a spirit In the deeper
Bhadows, with dark oyes looking serenely
out of a set white face: with red lips firmly
closed, not smiling, never drooping, always
looking beyond the hour of this tragedy to
the France of her faith. She belongs, as Im
mortelles belong, above tho graves of tho
bravest; ns hope transfigures despair. Such
dignity and such repose havo never been sur
passed by the women of any nation Invaded
by a hostile army.
Clubbing the Clubs
An article which, thought It may not be
popular, ought certainly to rouse comment,
belabors "Clubwqmen's Reading" (3) with
tho entire courage of Its convictions. Jt la the
first of a series and ls called "The Malady,"
The other two will be "A Diagnosis'' and
"Tho Remedy." Mr, A. E, Bostwick appears
to bo more than a mere antl-suftraglst,
though just what ho Is he does not reveal
In this urtlcle, He seems, however, to ba
very frank, and quite brave.
Unfortunately, the horizon of our women's
clubs is that of the puddle Instead of the
ocean. When I assert boldly that at the
present time the majority of vague and
illogical readers are women, and that
women's clubs are responsible for much of
this kind of reading, I shall doubtless Inour
the displeasure of the school of feminists
who seem bent on minimizing the differences
between the two sexes. Obvious physical
differences they have not been able to ei
plain away that men and women should
have minds of the same type is a physiologi
Why the feverish anxiety of tho girls eol-.
leges to prove that their graduates aie mar
rying and bearing children? The fact is
