IN ANNUAL BANQUET
H. A. C eensti:ie and G. H. Kings
bury, president and secretary respec
tively of the Itock Island Business
Men's association, were guests of the'
Moline Retail Merchants last evening!
at the annual banquet of the Plow No More Bowing( Snuffling or Morn-
i ny organization. The affair was held mg Hawking to Dislodge Mucus,
the funds. But the price they paid
was too great, say the mothers and
wives who assembled at two meetings.
Mrs. D. Harry Hammer, president
of the Mothers' Relief association and
member of numerous social civic
clubs, denounced the custom and re
fused to take any part in getting the
fair solicitors of the future.
"It is outrageous for a pretty girl
to appeal to a man for money," she
said, "aud the cloak of 'sweet, charity'
is a sin and is simply teaching the girl
sinful practices and showing her the
i way to win man's money.
"Mothers who will not even allow
their innocent, daughters to attend a
nickel show will dress them in their
best gowns and send them from home
with their sweetest and most alluring
smiles and wiles to beg money. Is
that charity? If it robs young girls
of their innocence, then we had better
get along without charity."
Mrs. Hammer told of several in
stances In which men who dropped
their offerings into the paste-board
boxes not only forgot their gallantry,
but were Insulting in their remarks.
From the 'tag day" of 1911, it also
was remembered, grew an "affair"
that caused the wrecking of one home.
Mrs. Charles D. Boardman, 932 Argyle
street, was one of the speakers who
rose in support of Mrs. Hammer.
"Mothers," she said, "cannot realize
the situation and must be misled, pro
bably by the desire to see their pret
their daughters to solicit funds," said
discription in the newspapers. It Is
true that chaperones were sent along
with the girls, sometimes, but it
might have been well to watch the
Other women supporting the protest
were Mrs. George E. Colby, Mrs. John
S. McClelland, Mrs. Frederick H.
Greene and Mrs. Orva G. Williams.
"We shall start this campaign urg
ing mothers to refuse permission for
their daughters to solicit funds," said
Mrs. McClelland, who is assistant sec
retary of the Hawaeye Fellowship
club. "It Is wrong and we are the
ones to rlnht it."
