New York. Nov. 1-Ethel Barrymore Is
piqued. She Is quite accustomed to re
ceiving nothing but the most flattering
comments irom aramaiic critics when
she appears In a new play In New York.
It seems to be habit to overwork a lot
of perfectly Innocent adjectives In de
scribing her charms.
When she appeared the other day In a
play written by Edna Ferber. the Chi
cago short-story writer, the usual thing
happened. Every critic went Into a
frenzy of "blurbs." That la, all but one.
Ills criticism was frankly cold and re
served and at least showed he had the
courage of his convictions. Tbe critic
was Heywood Broun and he graduated
from the baseball editorship of the Tri
bune vto the dramatic editorship. The
Herald Interviewed Miss Barrymore on
her most recent success and among
other things she said:
"All the critics praised my work ex
cept one, whom I understand was for
merly a baseball writer." '
II. Mitchell is one of New York's fore
most artists and II. T. Webster la like
wise aleadlng cartoonist. They spend
their vacations together In tthe Adiron
dack, borrow each other's cigars and
show other traits of untrammeled friend
This period of chummlness has extend
ed over several years and in that time
neither knew the other's first name.
When the subject was ever brought up
they have shown such a sklttishness that
they quickly veered to other topics.
The other night, however, both at
tended a banquet. The toastmaster an
uncouth person with no regard tor the
finer sensibilities called on "Harold
Jlltchell" to speak. Webster almost fell
off his chair with joy until later tbe
toastmaster called, upon "Harold Web
Neither .refer ta tha incident .for. It
seems that they' had often discussed with
great vehemence how they hated the
name of "Harold."
There Is a touch of pathos about the
suggestion that Robert Henley has made
to tne municipal labor bureau. Henley
Is a college graduate with a wife and
five children depending upon him and
nas oeen unsuccessful in a two years
search for work.
He says there are many Jobs, but for
none could he quality to the satisfaction
of the employer. He believes that there
are hundreds of other men in New York
wno are tramping the streets in the same
He wants the labor bureau to give each
man who has been, out of work more
than six months a blue tag to wear In
his coat lapel. He believes this will at
once create sympathy for the Job hunter
and in many cases result In employment.
Thomas L. -Masson. editor and writer,
has two hobbles golf and the education
of his four children As a golf player,
he Is an excellent editor, but as a parent
educator he Is unique. Every morning
between the time of 1:15 and 9:15, In the
big attlo of his home at Glen Rltye he
and his four children two girls and two
boys hold converse with the classics.
Mr. Masson has contrived to shake
the dust out, of the dustiest books to
throw ancient truths against an Interest
ing screen of modern existence and Inject
Into academic subjects the living spark
of erery-day life.
He believes that there Is a certain
prison twangjabout the word school and
he has overcome that prejudice and In
stilled In the minds of his children the
desire to know about things.
Getting past the barbcd-wlre entangle

for the securing of a suffrage ameml-
ment to the Constitution at the coming

Announcement was made that the Con
gresslonal Union for Woman Suffrage
would immediately open branch head
quarters In New Tork City. The organi
zation had been requested not to com
mence Its activities In tbe State until the
State election had been held ThH was
to prevent the confusion of State and na

Congressional Union, has left for New
York to assume charge of the branch.

will leave the city tomorrow for the meet
ing. Miss Paul speaks tonight at a lis
suffrage meeting In New York.
The union now has organized in nrteen
States and Is prepared to wage a strenu
ous campaign for national suffrage.
An open-air meeting was held last
night under the auspices of the union at
Ninth and E streets northwest. Mrs.
Jesse II. MacKaye was the principal
Regarding Ttiesda's elections. Miss
Psul yesterdsy said:
"While we are regretful that suffrage
did not win In New York. Massachusetts,
or Pennsylvania, we realize that these
defeats will greatly strengthen the
movement for a national suffrage
amendment to which the Congressional
Union for Woman Suffrage Li dedicated.
"The defeats in four States this au
tumn will undoubtedly convince all suf
fragists of the vtsdom of concentrating
on an amendment to th national Con
stitution rather than dissipating their
energy and money In laborious and cost
ly State referendum campaigns such as
have Just-been unsuccessfully waged In
New York. Massachusetts. Pennsylvania,
and New Jersey.
"We are making extended preparation:
for work with the next session of Con
gress, and are full of hope that the lev
erage which we possess In that body as
a result of the fact that one-fourth of
the Senate, one-sixth of the House, and
one-fifth of the vote for President, now
come from suffrage States, will mean tha
passage of the national amendment In
the next session."
The following statement was issued
from the headquarters of the national
congressional committee of the National
American Woman Suffrage Association
by Mrs. Laura Puffer Morgan, press
"The campaign in the four big East
ern States, thought It has not enfran
chised women In any one of them, has
put the cause of suffrage on a footing
rever before attained In this country,
and Impossible of attainment In any
"In New York alone It has put on rec
ord one million women who want to
vote and has registered at the polls half
a million men In favor of suffrage. This
enormous suffrage sentiment can not 'ail
to be converted Into votes 'or our Fed
eral amendment In Congress. If the mem
bers from these four States pretend to
represent their constituents."
