. Mrs. Howard Etheridge, Federation
Director, Talks Of Golden Jubilee
BY SUSAN IDEN,
Executive Secretary
Mrs. Howard G. Etheridge, o!
Asheville, immediate past president
of the North Carolina Federation of
Women's clubs, and General Federa
tion director with special charge of
the Golden Jubilee celebration in
North Carolina, was in Raleigh
Tuesday and visited the federation
headquarters in the Carolina hotel,
coming with her husband for just a
day’s visit.
Mrs. Karl Bishopric ,of Spray,
chairman of Juniors, was also in
Raleigh Tuesday and paid a v'sit to
club headquarters.
Much has already been said about
the Golden Jubilee of the Genei U
Federation of Women's clubs, but
there is much more to be said.
“Possibly the high spot of this
celebration will be reached during
Golden Jubilee Week, the week of
April 22, “Mrs- Etheridge said. "The
chairman of radio in the General
Federation is preparing for coast to
coast broadcast of a program from
New York, which will as nearly as
possible, be a replica of the first or
ganization meeting of the General
Federation of Women’s clubs.
:“By declaring this Golden Jubilee
"Week, we hope to have every club
woman in North Carolina listen to
this program,” Mrs. Etheridge said,
“either by gathering in groups at
the regular club meetings or special
meetings arranged for that purpose
ajone, or even at a birthday party if
the club has not already celebrated
that occasion.
X>eiure UI uunug nno wccft
amount realized from participation
in the celebration in whatever man
ner chosen by the individual club
should be sent immediately to Mrs.
P. R. Rankin, state birthday chair
man, who will present it in a form
al program arranged for that pur
pose, at our state convention in
Greensboro.” In this way Mrs.
Etheridge hopes to have more money
than her purse can hold to take the
council meeting in Milwaukee in May.
: One cannot think of a birthday
liarty without planning for prizes,
Mrs. Etheridge said, and the general
federation has most generously pro
vided this In the following awards
which will be made:
One hundred dollars to the state
with 201 or more clubs, which in
cludes North Carolina, w-hich raise.;
the highest per capita contribution,
based on membership in the general
federation.
Fifty dollars to the district which
raises the highest per capita con
tribution, based upon district mem
bership.
Fifty dollars to the club which
raises the largest contribution.
Twenty-five dollars to the club
which raises the largest per capita
contribution.
The North Carolina Federation will
present $2.50 to the district chair
man showing the largest increase p- -
capita in amount contributed through
birthday parties for the Foundation
Fund over the amount paid the past
year.
National housekeeping is a great
deal like house keeping in the home,
and the principles of national thrift
are identical with those practiced in
the family, Paul V. McNutt, Federal
Security Administrator, said when
he addressed the board of directors
of the General Federation of Wom
en’s clubs at the meeting in Wash
ington in January. Mr. McNutt is to
be one of the principal speakers at
the state convention of Women’s
clubs in Greensboro in May.
Women have the largest stake in
the security of the family, Mr. Mc
Nutt said, because it is around the
woman that the family revolves.
When it is necessary to economize
it is the woman who does it.
"Thrift in the home and in the
nation is not a simple matter of
saving money,” Mr. McNutt said.
"There is a difference between thrift
and parsimony, between economy and
hoarding- Science and inventions
have added to the expense of run
ning a home and they have added
to the expense of running a nation.
"We have come to believe that we
save money by preserving life and
health. We are now coming to be
lieve that it is sound economy to
conserve our soil, our forests and our
“There is one more item of nation
al thrift?” Mr. McNutt said, “that
cannot be ignored. We must spend
the necessary amounts to save for
ourselves and our children the ideals
of democracy. We do not hesitate to
spend enough to make our country
safe against military invasion. We
are at last -ealizing that it is equal
ly important to invest the amounts
necessary for social security.
“A nation that is adequately pre
pared agains . the hazards of econo
mic insecurity has an impregnable
defense against the threats of poli
tical insecurity. A policy which af
fords such protection is true econo
my and genuine thrift."
The North Carolina club women
are looking forward with keen in
terest to hearing Mr. McNutt at the
convention in May.

Klondike Solitaire Is Great Game To Play on Cold Winter
_Evenings
BY W.M. E. McKENNEY
America’s Card Authority
Klondike, often miscalled Can
field, is played with one pack of
52 cards. After shuffling deal out
seven piles of cards, with one card
in the first pile, two in the second,
and so on—a total of 28 cards. The
top card of each pile is face up,
the rest are face down. The usual
method of dealing is crosswise—
one card face up and six face
down; then a card face up on the
second pile and five face down on
the piles to the right; and so fol
lowing.
This row of seven piles is the
tableau. The foundations are to be
the four aces. When an ace turns
up and is available, place it above
the tableau. Building on the foun
dations is by suit and ascending
sequence up to the king. The game
is won if you get all 52 cards huilt
up by suits on the aces.
On the face-up cards of the
tableau, build in descending se
quence and alternating color. Thus,
a red jack may be placed on either
black queen. Two or more cards
face-up on a tableau pile are mov
ed as a unit. Thus, a stack such
as s9-d8-c7 may be transferred
bodily onto a red tenspot.
Whenever all face-up cards are
so removed from a tableau pile,
turn up the topmost face-down
card. A prime object is of course
to get all buried face-down cards
into play. A space in the tableau
created by' the entire removal of
a pile may be filled only by a
king. No other card may be placed
in a space at any time.
After operations on the original
layout have come to a standstill,
tdfrn cards up from the top of the
pack one by one, placing them in
a single talon or wastcpile. The
top card of the talon is always
available for play onto foundations
or tableau. You may run through
the pack only once.
