The club is to meet Monday, January 21, in the newly opened Red Cross work room at the Warren M. Crosby store. E " The "politics" of th.s Woman's Kan sas Day olub are being a good deal discussed among the membership. In asmuch as the presidency of the club is a position that has been more or less a coveted one, numerous names for the presidency are annually sug gested and discussed. The subject is considered with reference to the exec utive ability of the candidate, -somewhat with reference to the length of her tine of membership in the society and her service to it in minor ways, her experience and her preparation other club work, as well as her gen eral fitness' for leadership in an or ganization of the siz and importance of the Woman's Kansas Day club. Mrs. A. Marburg is the outgoing president of the club. She served last year, finishing out the unexpired term Mrs. A. Marburg, president of the Woman's Kansas Day club. of Mrs. Kannie Cooper Atkinson, who died, during the preparation for the annual meeting.

Mrs. Morgan is a past president of the Kansas Equal Suffrage associa tion, and she is a favorite among the women speakers of the state. She has originality and a certain "spice" of temperament that removes her far from the commonplace and makes her unusually attractive. Mrs. Bullard, on account of the many public activities in which she is engaged, finds it im possible to consider becoming a can didate. Mrs. Roark has been active and prominent in club work in her part of the district, and she, too, has c large personal following of Kansas women who will be interested in her candidacy.

An eastern woman of distinguished personality and achievement to be in Toneka for a number .of weeks dur- I ing the late summer and early spring. is Mrs. Anna iJangnt curry, aean oi the Curry School of Egression, Bos ton, Mass., and wife of S. S. Curry. Ph. D., Lilt. D., president of the school. It is her plan to conduct a midwinter term of classes in this city from February 2 to March 1. The term will be held in the Topeka high school, and will offer credits toward the diploma course of the school for regular students. The work will be in voice, correction of defective speech, mind, body and voice train ing, reading, public speaking, Bible reading for ministers, platform and dramatic art, extemporaneous speak ing, and studies of scenes from Shake speare. Mrs. Curry belongs to a celebrated Boston family, being descended from the Carpenter and Baright families of Revolutionary and Colonial times. General Barker, who served in the revolution and the war of 1812, was an ancestor of hers. She is a gradu ate of Cook's Collegiate institute, Poughkeepsie, K. Y., and also of the Boston University School of Oratory. While she was very young she at tracted attention by her dramatic ability. Soon after graduating from Cook's Institute, she took a position as teacher of expression in the Milwau kee Female college. Prof. Lewis B. Monroe, Dean of the Boston University School of Oratory, recognized her powers, and under his influence she continued her studies. In 1877 she was graduated from the School of Oratory with the highest class honors, and appointed by the faculty to represent the class of 1877 at the first Boston University com mencement held in Tremont Temple. In July, 1879, she opened at Mar tha's Vineyard the first summer school of oratory held in the United States. Professor Monroe was to have con ducted this school, with Miss Baright as an assistant. Professor Monroe died at the open ing of the term, and Miss Baright conducted the school to the end of the session. On May 31, 18S2, she was married to S. S. Curry, Ph. D., afterward Snow Professor of Oratory in Boston Uni versity and founder of the School of Expression, Boston, and on June first sailed with her husband for Europe, where, they spent several months in travel, returning to Boston the fol lowing autumn. Mrs. Curry's strongest characteris tic is the harmonious co-ordination of intellectual and emotional . power. Her dramatic instinct has developed into a deep insight into truth. She has done some strong creative work in the vocal interpretation of the dra matic and lyric spirits in literature, notably in her readings from Mrs. Browning's "The Rhyme of the Duchess May", old ballads, Shelley's "Prometheus Unbound," and Rossetti's "Sister Helen"; of the epic spirit in an adaptation from Homer's Illiad and modern epic poems. Mrs. Curry, while not a club wo man, has held membership in the New England Woman's Club, Can tabrigia Club (Cambridge), Boston Browning. Society. Mrs. Curry was editor of "Expres sion" a quarterly Review no longer published. 46- X BETTER OF A DEBUTANTE. Dear S. R. Everybody is quite possessed to get a look at the wonderful diamond in its platinum setting that is beinff worn by a Topeka girl. It is thought to be the largest stone, of its kind in cap tivity in Topeka, and its cost- well, it sounds like war figures, and not war economy figures either. As she didn't wear it for a good while after she re ceived it, for reasons that I am not going to explain to you, not everyone in town haj had a look at it. It is cer tain that another ring is to be placed above it in the near future by the same person who slipped that beauty onto the tell-tale finger. The -other evening I was reading a story by O. Henry, and nearly jumped out of my negligee and slippers when I saw the names of two Topeka men not two lines apart. This is what it said: "'Boys,' said the lieutenant, waving his hand to the rangers, 'this is Jimmie Hayes. Captain MacLean has sent him down.' ' Can you beat it? Captain MacLean is our local war hero who was on the Mexican border and is now in the army, and Jimmie Hayes of course everybody knows. By the way, speaking of the Jimmie Hayses but that is another story. tl hear a story about little Patricia Shoaf, whose confusion of pedple and articles of furniture is forming the stock joke of the family to which she I belongs. One of the adoring km- j folks of the child makes frequent use of the telephone on days when it is impossible ior her to make a visit to the baby "Pat." And now the child calls every telephone she sees "Aunt Daisy." The Red Cross continues to occupy the center of the stage, A Red Cross conference was held at the First Meth odist church Friday night and the most polished, sane, fair-minded, clear headed speaker I have had an oppor tunity to hear since the war began was on the program. I hope you heard John D. Barry. If you didn't, you ; have something coming. He was such a finished and agreeable speaker without any of that oratorical, bal looning bombast, that characterizes so many western platform performers that I made inquiry about nim. He is the same Mr. Barry who writes for some of the high class magazines, and they say he is very close to the presi dent. And going on with this Red Cross meander, 1 have just heard it said that seven million women of America are giving- utterly without remuneration- their work to the Red Cross society. These women leave their homes and take all the time they can spare from their business, to engage in the tasks of the Red Cross rooms. This does not count the millions who are knitting at nights and in concerts, and other times while they rest. I was just wondering how gtnanv mil- It is unnecessary for you to suffer with eczema, blotches, ringworm, rashes and similar skin troubles.

Another thing that makes me wondefr a great deal is how the men get all the best jobs in the Red Cross. -That .society, you . - , , , j know, was founded by a woman and its drudgery is practically all done by) women, but somehow, now that the , Red Cross has grown so great, one , 'i - ' Vint nntioa hat Vi o man ac net ml can't but notice that the men, as usual. consiuuie uie Dossing sum. cuuisb : its not personally any of my business , A Doerr. the wife of Senator Heaven knows.

This time it is an Ohio visi tor, an attractive college and sorority girl, Helen Cashatt, of Columbus, who is inspiring a bit of gayetyJui "our set." She . is visiting Altha' Watson, and believe me, she couldn't have picked out a better hostess if sh'ewas coming for a really good time. Altha always sort of chooses for her court presentations, an attractive selection of guests, and she gathers about her the crowd that has the pep and the fun, In her retinue are always a group of week-end visitors from Fun ston, and you know yourself that a uniform lends no end of . class and eclat even to the simplest of social functions. The really important thing this week, as everybody knows, is the Council of Defense meeting. Some of the girls were asked to1 help register the delegates, but only four or five of them showed .up, to do the work. It is such a bore o be dug out of one's downy cot prior to ten o'clock in the morning just to go down to Memerial hall .and write, an endless number of names. There were very few eligible young men among those to be regis tered; nearly all of them were com fy, fat, sleek, sleep-o'-nights, old married men and college professors who looked precious little like a flir tation. But among the girls who put duty before comfort and went on up and worked like harvest hands at the job, I noticed Clyde Bonebrake, Edna Hopkins, Helen Yoder, Altha Watson and Ceora Lanham. They have the gratitude of the head of the Woman's Committee who asked them to serve, and one has faith to think they'll get some more reward in the blessed here after. And more about this Woman's Com mittee. I guess we all remember how the men manage a public meeting when they have some distinguished foreign speakers. Let's see, how about the Belgian Commissicm meet ing, when four or five local speakers took the biggest part of the afternoon program, and left a scant hour for the imported guests, and that hour at the last of the session when nearly everybody had to rush home pell mell to eat dinner before the steak got cold and the salad hot. I was about to say that Kansas women have the edge on them when it comes to managing a public meet ing. The presiding officer, Mrs. Mul vane, at the woman's special session, spoke about three minutes, and at that she didn't burst into any ora torical flitrlits, and she didn't pro pound any theories. She told briefly and in simple words what her organi- j was given tier, zation had done. To be sure, I heard Miss Easley has covered the coun It said that a woman speaker in the j try from Cody in the west to Devens evening didn't know when to stop, j in the east anri she hq-j toured the and that she delayed a committee j , meeting until way late. That, at least, is what Dean IJlackmar of K. U. told me, but the dean has a grouch. He is not a bit crazy about Topeka audi ences at times. He called 'um names, Said thev were proud and "hotty," bumptious . and self-satisfied. Take Dean Blackmar didn t half mean it, I'r.i sure; so let us go on being smug and complacent: s ' There are going to be a new set of officers down from Funston this week- end. 't he hign sounding titles wnicn graced our banquet boards and ball rooms, for a wnue nave gone taver there." or are about to go. Wasn't it disagreeable of some of the Jealous bachelors to tell that these good look ing army men were married, especial ly after some perfectly delightful, wild parties had been given for them, when the prettiest and nicest young girls in town were asked as partners for them? But put thy mind at ease. Oscar;., they were unattached. and that word comes from those who speak with authority and not as the scribes.

(Miss Hoyt will answer in this col umn all questions on mat tern of et iquette addressed to her in care of this paper. If a personal answer is desired enclose a three-cent stamp.) Jack: Unless you have been pay ing attentions to the young lady for sjme time, and are very fond of her, I advise you not to present her with a Christmas gift. Since in any case you are not engaged to her, your present should not take the form of jewelry, nor should it be very costly. It might be a half dozen pretty handkerchiefs, a book, a large box of candy, a vase, a candlestick a framed mirror, a pict ure, a knitting-bag, a shopping-bag. a hat-pin, or a box of initialed or mon ogramed stationary. She will prob ably not give you a present unless she is indebted to you for gifts in the past. i The young man takes the initiative in 'this matter; and the Jady probaby will not return your igift -until next j year. . Helen: Women of refinement, do i fiot give finger nails such a high de j gree of polish as they did a few years ago; nor do they tint them.
