CLUBWOMEN TAKE A STAND
Roused by publicity given the John
son case, clubwomen took a hand in
the fight against abortion in a meet
ing of the City club social evil com
mittee. Facts on conditions growing
steadily worse were discussed and a
remedy in the form of publicity which
would bring a better understanding
of the evil was advocated.
Married women outnumber single
four to one, according to a statement
of Dr. Efla V. Davis, member of the
qommittee. It is their money which,
in many cases, causes a poor physi
cian to perform an abortion.
The health committee of the city
council met and appointed a subcom
mittee to investigate the evil. Pub
lic hearings coupled with a secret
quiz aimed at physicians who per
form abortions will be the action of
the body. Publicity again was advo
vated as a remedy.
