Miss McClintock Says This Question Most
Important To Be Discussed By
Federated Woman's Clubs.
The following interview with Miss
McClintock upon the importance of
intermediate schools for the South
and the good work which may be
done towarda securing them by the
approaching convention of the Fed
erated Clubs for Woman's Work to
be held in Columbia is from the Col
umbia State. Miss McClintock is pres.
ident of the Presbyterian College for
Women in Columbia. and is the
talented and accomplished daughter
of Dr. E. P. McClintock, of Now
berry. The State says:
There is an immense amount of
interest in the convention of the Fed
oration of Woman's Clubs, which be
gir.s hero on April 21, and those per.
sons who are laboring under the im
pression that the ladies are coming
here from all over South Carolina to
(iscusA new Parisian vogues, multi
colored spring gowns, lingerie and
all the fol de rol that sometimes
makes the heart, of woman glad
n:igkt just as well dissipate the idea
Neither is it the purpose, so far as
can be ascertained, to seriously con
sider the advisability of bifurcated
or abbreviated skirts, after the fash
ion of the Rainy Daises and Sorosis.
Very different snbjects will inter
est the hundred or more delegates
and some of t.hese are of the deepest
posible interest to the people of
South Carolina and of vital import
ance to the welfare and advancement
of the whole State. Among these
is the edocational question. Miss
Euphemia McClintock, the president
of the Presbyterian College for Wro
men, who will be a sort of steering
committee for the convention, ro
ceived a letter from the president of
the federation yesterday and it has
been practically decided that the
morning and afternoon Resions will
Lhe given up to business and the
evenings the ladies will give up to
On Thursday evening there will
be a music and art reception at the
Presbyterihn college, which Miss
McClintock hopes to make exceed
ingly interesting. The (1Uestion of
advancing the usefulness of the
State schools and the paramount
importance of intermediate institu.
tions will iii all probability be the
all consuming theme for discussion.
Miss McClintock, who is a South
Carolinitn by all tates ani inlclina

high noon and the brilliant sun rays
fell through the forest of trees on
beds of luxuriant violets, bay trees,
sweet olive, clinging vines of wistaria
jessamine and the thousand and ont
rare plants that grace the grounds in
rare brilliance. The rippling melody
of innumerable song birds fillea the
air, rustling spring zephyrs stirring
an accompaniment among the bud
ding leaves radiantly green. Here
and there through the vistas of hedge
and clinging vines now and then one
caught a glimpse of some pretty giri
in white. In all verity the atmos
phere seems to have been preserved.
Discussing the needs of the State
in an educational way Miss McoClin
tock said after the writer had come
back to thf prosaic that because t here
was no high school in the State the
colleges were now compelled to take
girls that were really not far enough
advanced. This was not as it should
be and she hoped very much that
something would come out. of the
discussion of the Federation.
"Are you im favor of the very ad
vanced ideas' that exist in the big
colleges of the east, Miss McClin
"I am in favor of anything that
fits the woman more thoroughly for
her duties in the home. I am a firm
believer in mind training and I do
not believe in teaching the girl math
ematics because she may need that
study later on, but because of the in
fluence on her inind. There is soie
thing she should know besides the
Miss McClintock's attention was
called to the immense harm that had
been done by some of the great east
ern colleges for women. It was meni
tioned to her that in a little village
in Maine the other day it was dis
covered that among 1,700 women in.
habitants there had been only seven
marriages in the last five years. A
large proportion of the women in
that place were college women. Miss
McClintock answered the relative
query by saying that out of five of
her students that would graduate
this year only one intended to accept,
"There is no danger of any such
results here," said Miss McClintock.
"The southern girl cannot stand the
drive that a girl in the north can.
They have to be nurtured and cared
for and fo.r that. reason all the condi
tions for her advanement should be
of the best.''
Mis. MleClintock weont on to ex
plain that tihe college education she
hoh eves ini and( practices is the onie
which hest fits the girl for her home
life. 'T' polite accom plishments are
of course necessary, but there must
be somet hing more-son et hing t hat
trains the mind.
The writer tried to gather fromi
Miss McClintock just how far this
education must go, and called her
attention to the fact. thnat the number
of Vassar, Wellesley and girls from
