Neighborhood Home Holds Incep

"BOOFUL LADIES" P0UE TEA

Work Being Done for Young
America Arouses Great
Neighborhood House, 470 N Street
Southwest, had great "doln's" yesterday
afternoon, for the boys and girls who
work and play there were at home to
the grown-up folks, who help to make
that delightfully informal club possible.
Really, It might be called a party that
the Neighborhood House boys and girls
had, for besides showing off the pretty
baskets and needlework that Neighbor
hood Club members had made, and tell
ing about what each room and hall was
for, the house offered things to eat and
"booful ladles" poured tea.
Mr. and Mrs. J. P. S. Nellgh and Miss
Levlna Woodworth. who live at Neigh
borhood House and have Immediate
charge of the industrial, social, and
boys' club work, and Norton M. Little,
who helps look after the finances of
the house, were a general reception
committee, and showed the visitors
through the house and through the In
fants' and Children's Dispensary, next
door, where Dr. W. J. French and Miss
Ruth Merrill preside as physician and
Some Remarkable nooms.
There were some remarkable rooms
there. There was a loom room where
rugs and fine fabrics were being woven
with wonderful deftness by little hands
that had not long been trained to the
work. There was a dye room, where
young girls were coloring beautiful stuffs
with a process that outside of Paris
only Neighborhood House knows. Neigh
borhood House learned It through the
kindness of Mrs. Christian Hemmlck,
who has done so much for the house.
There were sewing rooms, and wash
rooms, and a resplendent kitchen, where
the girls who make Neighborhood House
a sort of second home learn to cook
dainty, edible, nutritious foods. A dining-room,
neatly set. was hard 6y, and
the little cooks served some of their
Though there was no program, a class
of girls sang songs as they sat at their
sewing, and up In the day nursery two
babies cooed a welcome. They seemed
to like the diversion.
Bnys Provided For.
Now, back of Neighborhood House Is
the first public playground ever opened
in Washington, and Neighborhood
folks are proud to show It. Thirteen
thousand children played in it last
summer, and it's rather small, too. But
yesterday the Neighborhood folks took
their visitors across the playground to
the workshop, where pretty baskets are
made. And above the workrooms there
were the boys' clubrooms, in which the
boys were playing pool and billiards,
and talking about their several
"gangs." now grown into "True Ameri
cans. "Progress," "Eagles," and half
a dozen other "clubs."
Neighborhood House boys and girls
took great delight yesterday In telling
visitors Just how Important their work
is. For they not only have a kinder
garten school and playgrounds and
clubrooms and those delights, but the
grown folks of the neighborhood use
Neighborhood House at night to play
billiards and pool, to read for there
Is a branch of the Public Library there
to talk, and they have little dances
there, and the young men and maidens
sit together In the parlors and talk of
their Important affairs.
A Busy Place.
It's a very busy place all the time,
that Neighborhood House.
Besides the resident workers there was
a reception committee of Miss Sophia
Slebert, Miss Amaryllis Glllett, Mrs.
Christian D. Hemmlck. Mrs.. Adella
Gates Hensley. Mrs. Archibald Hopkins,
Mrs. Adolph Kahn, Mrs. Norton M. Lit
tle, and Col. Thomas W. Symons. Miss
