Their Position on Problems of the Day
Mrs. Havelock Ellis and Others Have Addressed This Star Chamber Council
of Thinking Women, Which Has Among Its Members Charlotte
Perkins Oilman and Mrs. Frederic C. Howe?No
FOR a lonfr time it has been evident
that there was something ap?
proaching a ?tar chamber coun?
cil of the prominent women of New
York. But who? Where? When?
How? These ?eemed questions to
which there were no unswer?. Now '
the answers are given for the lir.-t
time. Its name is the Heterodoxy, and
it meets once a week at the Greenwich
Village Inn, at No. 7i> Wat<hington

Has No Bylaws.
V the first there were no rules as to
membership, and even now than
no ruad and fnal rules. Indeed, one of
the most unusual things about this
most unusual club is the fact that it
may be said, to have no bylaw..
From the first it was the daaire of
the women to dispense as far a." |
ble with red tape. To such an extent
have they succeeded in thi? laudable
endeavor that the Heterodoxy, speak?
ing strictly, ean leareelj, be called an
organisation. Only two rules have
been laid down as to membership.
The first is that only women who are
what is loosely termed al
shall become ".ember?.
"It is hard to tell just what we mean
by that term, even," said one of the
member?. "Certainly we do not mean
that all of the women ?hall have the
same viewpoint. If so, what would be?
come of our diaensaioni which
lust until dinner time? But we
do mean that the members shall be
