;
Miss Gladys West entertained three
tables at bridge Friday evening.
Mrs. Noble Prentis made an ad
dress before the visiting women in
Topeka Friday at the Art Guild rooms.
She suggested that the Guild engage in
a membership campaign, with a view
to procuring 500 members. This
number, at for each associate mem
bership, would insure an income of
$1,000 yearly with which the Guild
could bring some first class exhibits to
Topeka without the worry and diffi
culty of realizing enough money from
the exhibitions to pay the expenses at
tendant upon their presentation. The
current expenses of the club are nearly
met with the revenues -obtained from
percentages of sales of the work of the
members who exhibit there, and by the
rentals of wall and floor space to local
exhibitors who are members of the
Guild. About 50 new "members have
ioined the Guild since the opening of
the famous Borglum exhibit, which j
has been, held at the rooms since the
first of January, and which will close
Sunday.
Mr. Merrell Gage will speak Sunday
afternoon and evAning to visitors at
the exhibit.
The program committee of the Ce
ramic Art club left the order of en
tertainment for this week's meeting
to the pleasure of the hostesses, ' who
gave a colored minstrel show, in
which Mrs. Oscar Perkins, Mrs. T. S.
Stevens and Mrs. Edna Stuart took the
principal part. This was followed by
a mock trial. Mrs. Stoart represented
Judge George H. Whitcomb and Mrs.
Stevens was the Judge Robert Garver
of the court. Prisoners at the bar
were Mrs. J.'K. Jones, Mrs. George O.
Boone and Miss Marie Witwer.
The feature of the afternoon was
the showing of a perfectly appointed
luncheon service. A complete set of
luncheon china for two places was
prepared for the event. Miss Gertrude
Anderson made the design, and it was
worked out in the studio of Mrs. Edna
Stuart, under her direction. Those
who did the work were: Mrs. Stuart,
Miss Anderson, Mrs. W. C. McDon
ough, Mrs. Stevens. Mrs. H. E. Lyman.
Miss Marie Mayhew and Miss Winifred
Hartley. The decoration was dusted
work in pale green, old rose and dull
blue in a conventionalized basket pat
tern, outlined in black and gold. The
luncheon linen was embroidered in
pink and blue French knots and edged
with cluny lace. The work was done
by Mrs. Fred Hale. The luncheon
menu was as follows: Oyster cock
tail, almond cream bouillon with
crackers, creamed cheese, mushrooms,
potatoes, asparagus tips, alligator pear
salad with brown bread sandwiches,
strawberry shortcake with whipped
cream, and coffee.
The luncheon napkins were finished
with a crocheted edge in blue and em
broidered in one corner in a teapot and
cup design in blue. The serving was
done by Miss Maria Mayhew. Guests
of the club were Mrs. J. A. McLean,
Miss Alberta Hale. Miss Kate Thomen
and Miss Bertha Hempstead.
The Shawnee County Political
Science club gave its annual speaker
dinner Friday night at the First Con
gregational church. Mrs. Festus Fos
ter, president of the,club, presided.
The first speaker of the evening was
Mrs. W. A- Johnston, introduced as
the "dean of Kansas equal suffrage."
Mrs. Johnston is president emeritus of
the Kansas Equal Suffrage association,
which which the Shawnee County Po
litical Science club is affiliated. Her
subject was "A Retrospect." She
talked on the steps by which political
rights are being obtained for women,
beginning with a picture of Puritan
timAt in A m n-iTi nrnan iVio Tlrifa
walked to church just three steps be- I
hind her husband. She reviewed the
granting of educational advantages to
women, giving the date of 1850 as the
first time when an American college
(Oberlin, Ohio.) was opened to wo
men. She spoke of the entrance of
women into professional and business
life, and finally her entrance into the
political arena.
Mrs. W. Y. Alorgan of Hutchinson,
president of the Kansas Equal Suf
frage association, made a clever ad
dress, in which she told of the meet
ing of the National Suffrage associa
tion in Atlantic City, when nearly a
million dollars was raised in thirty
minutes for the suffrage cause. Mrs.
Morgan has pledged $100 from her as
sociation to the help of suffrage work
in unenfranchised states.
Mrs. J. M. Miller of Council Grove,
president of the State Federation of
Women's clubs, was called upon to
speak. She announced, as the largest
and most significant work of her
organization in the past two years, the
increase of the .scholarship loan fund
for the education of Kansas girls. The
Amount is now upwards of $7,000. A
gift of $400, two scholarships, has just
been received from the club women
of Parsons as a memorial to Fannie
Cooper Atkinson. The membership
of the federation has increased to
about 9,000 individuals and' 350 clubs.
Mrs. DeWitte C. Nellis, president of
the Kansas Society of .Native "Daugh
ters, made an address, telling of the
purposes of the club to promote com
radeship among Kansas women, give
patriotic instruction to the younger
generation, to keep alive the memory
of the pioneers, and to preserve
authentic history that has never been
recorded. She also spoke of the bill
the society is fostering for an appro
priation for the John Brown park at
Osawatomie.
Mrs. H. O. Garvey, chairman of the
women's organizations for the League
to Enforce Peace, made an address,
setting out the plan of the league, an -3
telling of the method of getting the
membership campaign before the
public, thru the organizations of the
state, "While the world is now in
volved in war, jhe situation is still
encouraging for the reason that a
horror of war, such as never existed
before, is in the minds of the people,
with a determination to find a way to
abolish war."
Mrs. Hattie Smurr, vice president of
the Kansas branch of the Ladies of
the G. A. R., told cf their purpose to
teach patriotism in the schools, and
to keep the organization alive thru
the generations to come by extending
the membership to the direct descend
ants of Civil war veterans. The Circle
sees- that a flag is placed in every
School house.
Miss Effie Graham, acting president
of the Kansas Council of Women,
spoke on behalf of her organization.
Th,e council is made up of presidents
and past- presidents of state organiza
tions of women. 'The club," Miss
Graham said, "have solved a problem
that the United States cannot solve.
We know what to 'do with our retir
ing presidents, so as to keep them so
occupied and.- satisfied that they do
not pop up and run for office again."'
She said she believed that clubs un
dertook too much work in too many
departments of welfare, civics, philan
thropy and education. Every time
the men think of something that
should be done -fhey go before some
woman's organization, praise their
power and influence, and shove the
burden of the performance off onto
them. Miss Graham went, on to ox
plain how the clubs provide a post
graduate system of education for the
state absolutely free, prividing their
own teachers, textbooks, pupils and
letwners. She went on to say that the
women of Kansas had taken a false
step when they were enfranchised in
saying that they did not want public
offices. "Women rhould be in the
legislature, on commissions and in
other public offices, instead of form
ing an outside fringe in the legislative
hall balconies."
Mrs. Noble Prentis, who was with
the Hughes special train, spoke on the
urgency of the need for women to use
the ballot to assist other women in
obtaining it. .
Mr. Walter Johnson, chairman of
the auditorium committee of the
Chamber of Commerce, presented to
the club the plan of the men for get
ting a new auditorium. He wishes the
club women to consider the questions
the committee is asking, whether the
city should bund a new auditorium.
repair and enlarge the old one, and if
the former, what shall be done with
the present building. The committee
will take- these questions to all the
important organizations of the city,
and then make recommendations to
the city commission.
Mrs. Joseph Hicks read a chapter
from Miss Graham s cook "Aunt Liza's
Praisin Gate." Miss Jeanette Price
sang "Airy Fairy Pipers," and "Daf
fodils." Mrs. E. G. Brown sang
"Where My Caravan Has Rested," a
song by one of the composers now
highly regarded in the east.
A young woman invited to a party
of one of the dancing clubs was dis- !
cussing the habit of the club of wast- j
ing money on punch with which to ;
spike the champagne. "You know," I
she said, "that the people who don't j
like -the refreshments they provide go ,
off by themselves and dance with each
other. Of course the forming of ,
cliques is expected from the married :
sets, but as for me, 1 wouldn't dare to j
do that " - . ,
''Why not," she was asked, "are you !
afraid the others would call you a j
snob?"
"Snob, nothing!" the young woman :
replied. "They would do worse than i
that they would call me a stick. To ;
be called a snob implies some sup-
posed superiority, but when they call 1
you a stick, they think you're a dub I
and don't know how to be anything
else." j
