AS WOMAN to WOMAN
<€ T LIKE the lad who when his
J father sought
To clip his early morning nap
By hackneyed tale of vagrant Worm by
early songster caught.
Cried: 'Serves him right; 'tis not at
The worm rvas punished, sir, for early
rising. , "
We all know there is such a thing as
being too late. But aren't we apt to
ignore the fact that there is also such a thing as being too early?
At least it seems to me that there is.
There are some people who are always a least 10 minutes late to an ap
pointment. There are others that are always correspondingly early. And,
whereas it is invariably trying to have to wait for any one, it is sometimes equally
trying to have people invariably come before you are ready for them.
I have a friend who frequently calls for me when we are going out to
gether. We always appoint a time for her to come which will give us more
than ample time to reach our destination, even allowing for all possible delays
— she sees to that. And then she always comes from 15 minutes to a half
hour before the time appointed.
Needless to say, lam never ready at that time. Then, of course, I have
to stop and Welcome her and make her comfortable, and because of that delay
and because of the feeling of being hurried, which her air of patient waiting
inspires in me, and which naturally makes me slower than usual, I am not ready
/ have another friend "who always gets to any appointed place of meeting
at least 10 minutes ahead of time. And then if by any chance lam two or
three minutes late she snaps her watch at me reproachfully and assures me that
she has been waiting 1 5 minutes. I know that lam only to blame for a few
of those minutes, but she evidently feels that I am guilty of them all and some
how contrives to make me feel the same way.
People of this temperament always go to a train or boat from five min
utes to five hours before the starting time, the length of time depending on the
length of the trip. They never lose their trains, to be sure, but they waste as
much time waiting around in depots as they would by missing a train once or
twice in a lifetime. My ideal man must carry a watch that is exactly right,
and arrive at a train not more than five minutes before starting time, prefer
ably less. I don't want him to appear to hurry. I want him to leisurely board
the train and take his seal just as it starts.
From our youth up it has been dinned into us that punctuality is a virtue,
and I don't deny that. I merely wish to call your attention to the fact thai
punctuality does not mean being early one bit more than it means being late.
Listen to Mr. Webster's definition of punctual — "adhering exactly to a regular
or appointed time."
Therefore those people who are always early are just as far from being
punctual as those who are always late.
But wouldn't they be mad if you told them so!

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 1913.
TO RECEIVE ARMY
"Votes for Women" Sounds
on Princeton Campus
President Elect Wilson Not
in Town to Receive the
PRINCETON. X. J.. Feb. 13.—The
strrcato yell of Princeton university
with the appendage, "Votes for women!
Votej[ for women! Votes for women!"
greeted the "army" of suffragettes
which is marching to Washington when
it arrived here at 7 o'clock tonight.
The women. 13 strong, had covered 27
miles in eight hours of active walking,
and several of them were on the point
of exhaustion when the lights of the
i university town twinkled a welcome.
"General" Rosalie Jones, commander
of the expedition, declared that for real
I hardship today's walk exceeded any
j thing she had experienced.
"Corporal" Martha Klatschem, who is
less than five feet tall, had to be sup- I
ported the last four miles of the march.
She staggered into the village an hour
after the arrival of the vanguard,
pluekily refusing offers of a lift from
passing , automobiles.
TAKE THE WRONG ROAD
The scheduled 20 miles between
Metuchen, N. J., the day's starting
point, and this village was stretched
j into 27 as the result of the women I
taking the wrong road. This carried J
them over a stretch of rough marching
before they found the main highway
again. Three women dropped out en
route, leaving 13 regulars tonight.
Mrs. John Boldt. who reached the out
skirts of the village nearly an
ahead of the "main army," received a
reception whien* frightened her. The
students discovered her plodding along
and sent word back to the campus that
the first hiker had arrived. Two hun
dred strong, the students marched out
to meet her. They surrounded her,
two of the students taking her arm.
Thus they escorted her for a mile, sing
ing and yelling. Mrs. Boldt finally
appealed to two proctors of the uni
versity, who rescued her.
A student filled automobile that had
been scouring the country roads in
search of the "army" came into town
Bhortly afterward and announced that
the "main division" was approaching.
The students immediately went out to
meet them, and the scene was renewed.
MARCH TO THE INN
The students fell in line and marched
to the Princeton inn, their numbers this
time swelling to more than 500. Here
the students called for a speech from
"General" Jones. The suffragette
leader, undaunted, mounted a chair and
asked that the students form a men's
league for woman suffrage.
The day's march was through a
stretch of comparatively lonely «oun
try, but there was scarcely a farmhouse
passed whose inhabitants did not give
the army words of encouragement.
President elect Wilson, to whom the
suffragettes expect to deliver a mes
sage at the time of his inauguration,
was in town tonight, but "General"
Jones decided to make no attempt to

Speakers Explain That the
Old Spirit of Narrowness
Has Left the World
Addresses by those engaged various
ly in the work of aiding humanity
were listened to yesterday afternoon
by members of the Council of Jewish
Women. The speakers were Mrs. Eve
lyn Brown K"ck of tie Y. W. C A.,
Mrs. Emma "\V. lAUie of thn Homefiml
ing Society of the Native Sons and
Daughters, and Ralph C. Goodwin of
the Y. M. C. A., who said that he re
joiced in the gradual elimination of the
old spirit of narrowness which had
prevailed in the world. He said that
such an action as a group of Jewish
women asking , a secretary of the Y.
M. C, A. to address them on hie work
would have been an impossibility In
the days of our ancestors. Getting to
gether for the betterment of mankind
is now destroying old prejudices.
Mr. Goodwin said that the aim of
his organization was to adapt itself
to the needs of young men. He spoke
of the immigration problem, told of
ths work of the Y. M. C A. In all parts
of the world. He said that prepara
tions were beginning for the reception
of the immigrants in San Francisco
after the Panama canal was opened.
Mrs. Keck told of what has been
done by the Y. \V. C A., particularly
along , the lines of Travelers' Aid work,
which has been the means of helping
thousands of girls who traveled alone.
