Women's Clubs Demand Gush And Eye-Wash BY RUTH MILLETT .... Women’s clubs in the United States are “lapsing more and more into gush and eye-wash” says Ferdinnand Tuohy, writing for “Britannia.” Mr. Tuohy of fers as a solution the divorce of social clubs from improvement clubs. ? Anybody who expects women to get rid of the social side of improvement clubs doesn’t know women. It’s just natural for women to make a social occasion out of any shared undertaking. No matter what weighty mat ter Madam President plans to bring up at club meeting, she is as much concerned with what she is going to wear when she presides as what she is going to say. And many a club has found out from the day it decides to stop serving refreshments at tendance at meetings falls off alarmingly. Something or Them No matter how earnest their purpose when women organize to work together, they just have to make it a social occasion. They’ll work and often work hard for any good cause. But they want to get something out of it for themselves. And what they want is some social life. Make an improvement club all improvement and no gush and eye-wash,” and the im provement quickly loses a lot of its members. ST. MATTHEW'S NEWLY ELECTED OFF ICERS—Left to right are Mrs. R. J.

Yes, I am speaking of the approaching Dramatics club play, ‘‘Seven Sisters.” It's really going to be a big hit and it has more fastmoving scenes than any play ever to be on our stage. Being a little curious as to how the cast was doing, I stopped in on one of their practices the other day and was amazed to see how well they were coming along. The stage directors were adding a few touches to the already decorated scenes and I noticed Ethel Pendleton, one of the student directors, finishing up one side of the walls. Jack Shytle was busy hammer the door and other odd things together. Everyone was pitching right in to help and it really looked nice. The cast has been practising every afternoon until very late and sometime at night. The costumes arrived Friday and, of course, the members of the cast were excited over their attire. There were such remarks as, “Oh! My costume is too little,” or, “Tres charmante” (in English, “Very charming”.) The costumes are brightly colored peasant ones and the men are dressed in high collars and large ties, the Hungarian style. The colorful play will get underway Friday night at eight in the high school auditorium. It really was a lot of fun”. This is the ram ark one of the freshman was heard saying as he left the Freshman Frolic Sat urday night. Miss May was in charge of all games and some proved to be a little rough. I don’t mean to criticise the games, but if you had been there you would know what I mean. One particular game that everyone enjoyed was one in which the girls got into a circle and the bqys made a circle around them. The girls went clockwise and the boys counter clockwise. When the music stop ed you had to find your partner. Of course, you all know a straight line is the shortest distance between two points and so the center of the ring was the way everyone went to get his or her partner. Mr. and Mrs. Hamilton joined in with the games and they, too, found it a wee bit rough, but fun. Miss May had dancing games, volley ball games and numerous other kind. Punch and cookies were served and the gym was beauti fully decorated in bright color ed paper. This party was just for the freshmen, but the social marshals were in charge of help ing Miss May so they were the only upperclassmen admitted. When Mr. Chase announced the end of the dance, there were cries of dissatisfaction. I believe that this was the biggest affair that has ever been held in the high school and the freshmen really showed up in a big way. Again I am proud to say that two more of last year seniors have been placed in the hall of fame by being elected class of ficers. They are Ann Jordon and Patty Jones, who have recently been elected president and sec retary, respectivly, of the fresh men class at Flora Macdonald in Red Springs. Congratulations Ann and Patty and keep up the good work. Yesterday the students hold ing tickets to the matinee for ‘'Henry V” were excused at two thirty in order to attend. There IS WASHING A WORRY?
