American Women to Erect Memorial to Titanic Heroes
tributes First Dollar to the
v Sent to All Sections
of the UnitedStates.-
Womankind of all America has start'
ed a campaign more riganUc that any
other of lti kind la the history of the
world to erect In this city a perpetual
memorial to the heroism of mankind,
brought out so tragically by the men
who died on the Titanic that the wom
en might be saved.
Mrs. John Hay. wife of former Secre
tary of" State Hay, and .Mrs JohnHays
Hammond, wife of the multimillionaire
mining engineer, are In personal charge
of the movement Mrs. William Howard
Taft. wife of the President of the United
States, has contributed the first dollar
toward Its fulfillment. But from these
three the moement Is spreading over
the entire country. It is for all wom
en, of air positions, color, race, and
creed. The wife of the President con
tributed only one dollar, but that was
all that was asked. That Is all that
Is asktd -of any woman. '
The movement was launched at a
meeting held In this city Thursday
night. At that time pUns were laid
for the formation of a "committee of
one hundred' to further the work. This
committee will be national in Its scope,
comprising membership from every State
In the Union. And already letters are
pouring In from women of world-wide
soda standing and from women who
must work for their living All will
Sent Throoahoat Country.
As a result of this preliminary work,
tens of thousands of letters have been
sent broaDcast to the women of every
where In the United btates. asking them
to contribute 51 toward the erection of
a lasting memorial to the men who save
up their own lrtes to save those of tnelr
sisters. Many responses hate already
neen received from the nearer localities
Before the end of the week dollar bills
will be pouring In from everywhere The
committee expects to dedicate the memo
rial Before the expiration of the year
The money that has come In Is being
handled so that, of Itself. It will swell

91emnrlal In Capital.
J. or. despite the fact that the idea
found Its birth In this city, is the memo
rial being conducted by the women of
INaEhlngtcn. It Is being conducted, by
the women of America. Only after long
and most serious of consideration was it
decided to erect the memorial in this
city. The decision was finally reached
solely because Washington Is the Na
tion's Capital, and. hence belongs to all
States equally The men who went down
on the Titanic thst women might live
came from all the States. There is
scarcely a city in the nation that is not
grief-stricken over Its own Titanic dead.
Hence a Titanic memorial in the Na
tions Capital will belong to all sections
alike. And this is as it should be. i
In order to make the national Import
of the memorial .final .in its. absolutism
few Washington women have been
chtsen to serve on the "committee of
And as the memorial will be national
In its import, so will it be national even
down to the. small details. No mention
of individual names- will be made on the
bronze pillars and marble columns to be
erected. The men of the orchestra, who
standing knee-deep In tee chilled water,
went down to their death playing
Nearer. My God, to Thee," the stokers,
the oilers, and the coal passers will
rank with the men whose names were
listed on the first cabin list. For after
all, the humble stoker, with his pitiful
wage of &ew dollars monthly, was Just
as much a hero In his own modest way
as Col. John Jacob Astor. with his mil
lions, or even our own MaJ Archibald
Butt. All had but one. thing to give
their lives. And all gave It willingly
without a royrmur.
Memory of Death.
It Is moH -than a century since the
women of tile land, back in the colonial
days, sold their clothes, sacrificed their
Jewels, even starved themselves, to" aid
their husbands and brothers In their
fight for Indepenaence. Then they were
sacrificing self for life. To-day they
are asked to sacrifice self, though In far
lesser degree, to the memory of death.
The manner' in which these women of
to-day are responding shows that the
spirit of those former days still reigns
strong So much did the Plan appeal
to Mrs. Taft. wife of the President of
uie nation, that In contributing the first
dollar she abandoned the custom she has
followed ever since she has been In tho
White House and commented on the
memorial In a signed statement, whlcA
"latTti.es me pleasure to start the
vro&w a Titanic -memorial fund by giv
ln.the first dollar, r am glad to do
this in gratitude to the chivalry of Amer
ican manhood, and I am sure that every
woman will feel that the smallness of
the contribution solicited will enable her
to.do the same HEtlN H. TAFT."
Unlike all other memorials, the plan
to bonpr the Titanic dead is not con
nected with any-fixed amount of money.
It is merely hoped that every woman
will give her mite the greater the num
ber of givers the greater, the more mag
nificent; (be more lasting will be the
memorial. And the greater also will be
the tribute to the women of to-day and
their sense of appreciation.
Appeal to Erers- Woman.
With this object In view. then, Ian ef
fort will be made to reach either, perx
sonally or by mall every woman in the:
United States. There are approximately

In the meantime, while the money is
being gathered, the committee of one
hundred faces the problem of getting.
congress to contribute a site for the
memorial. There will be no difficulty
In actually securimr the contribution.
The trouble lies in selecting the most
There Is a general consensus of opinion
that the memorial will be most Imposing
on the Mill. Just what part of the IJall,
however, is a subject for argument.
There are any number of locations, all
seemingly of almost equal advantage.
Whatever the final spot chosen, how
ever. It is certain that Congress will
give It to the memorial gladly and that
It will be a spot chosen because on it
the memorial will seem most Impressive.
The Idea has recently been advanced
that the memorial might be erected near
tne group of new departmental buildings
which the government plans to erect on
the MalL If this Is done there need be
no fear that the gotemment buildings
will detract from the memorial. iThough
the former will coat million, it will
rrobably be them rather than the latter
tltat will suffer from the comparison
.Location, however. Is a Question which
must be-! worked out later. It will, of
course, depend In -a decree on tho
amount of money that is donated.
Scores of Plans. ,
Scores upon scores bf plans connected
with the memorial were considered and
rejected before the final idea was tnit
In working order. Some there were'who
wanted to fill the memorial with statues
Some even thought that a group of stat
ues would best express the appreciation
of heroism which Is the memorials
reason for existence.
But the statuary plans were wisely
rejected. Only a few days go a famous
French sculptor one whose name
known all over the world frankly told
the members of a Congressional commit
tee that our nation pas too much atten
tion to statues, to the bitter detriment
of characteristic, pure, and classic archi
tecture. And the other really great ones
In the worldof art are Inclined to agree
with this Frenchman, who, being hlm-
seit a sculptor, certainly must have been
"Real Ideals." said this famous French
man to our Congress, "can best be ex
pressed by architecture It is the archi
tecture of a land by which we judge Its
culture. Its ambitions, and Its realization
of those ambitions."
And puttlngsthia statement to the proof
u is remerapereq. last ancient Greece is
remembered rn6re for ier temples than
her statues. The most wonderful, the
most impressive, probably the most beau
tiful and certalnlv the most awe insntr-
ing renc ol ancient Rome is the Coli
seum. So It is tilth the Pyramids of
Egypt So It is and has been with all
nations, of all times.
And so. realizing this, the women of
tne Titanic memorial decided that there
should be a simple building of the sim
plicity that really counts, and reallv
speaks. There was no showlness about
the men who sacrificed their lives on the
Titanic They made their sacrifice sim
ply, manfully The women who honor
them, and who In bo many cases loted
them, win erect their memorial slmolv
and with true womanliness.
.Deep and Solid.
There Is nothing "showy" about eten
the tiniest detail connected with the
memorial. It is deep and 'solid a simple
womanly recognition of a chltalry and
heroism which.! before the Titanic dis
aster, pessimists declared to be dead.
wnereter possible appeals will be
made to women In person to contribute.

Such Is the letter, which added to ether
appeals and the added efforts of those
receiving those appeals Is expected to
bring In hundreds of thousands -of dol
lars for the memorial The sum asked Is
so small that there Is scarcely a woman
In all the nation but can afford to
contribute and have her part In the
memorial. Certainly there Is not a. wom
an but wants to have her part In it
If the Idea which also Is an ideal ap
peals to the women of the rest of the
United States aa strongly as It does to
those of Washington, the gathering of
the fund will be only a matter of days.
Not a woman In all the Nation's Cap
ital who has been asked for a contribu
tion has -yet refused. Nor has it been
only the women socially prominent whd
hate been asked Women from the less
brilliant walks of life hate been asked
and they hate git en as readily, as en
thusiastically aa their wealthier sisters.
This, too. Is as it should be. The men
who went down on the Titanic did not
sacrifice their Uvea solely for the wom
en who actually were saved From a
literal standpoint, this perhaps may
have been the case But from the
broader, the real, and tho true stand
point, they sacrificed their lltea .ior
woman not the Individual, but the sex.
Tho Titanic memorial has jast started
but In Its very birth It Is so gigantic.
io appealing to all classes, that already
it has extended to the farthest limits of
the United States. It Is certain to grow
with leaps and bounds.
And by this time next year the memo
rial will have been dedicated a lasting
monument to the heroism of mankind
as emphasized y the dead soldiers of
every-day life, who went down on the
