Prt.fi a committee tu work among moor conization and so on. An I we women I't raise the money The last campaign The nuance committee, of the Hoard of Aldermen received yesterday from David Welch, representing real estate, manufacturing and other Interests allied with the Bronx Hoard of Trade, a long brief protesting against tho proposed erection of a I2.S0O.000 garbage disposal plant on Hiker's Island, half a mile from tho Bronx shore line on one side and less than a mile from the shore lino ot Queens on the other. The committee Is expected to report on the projected plant at the meeting ot the Board of Alder men to-morrow. The Hoard ot Kstlmate and Apportion ment some time ago awarded a con tract for the disposal of the garbago of the boroughs of Manhattan, Kings and Bronx to a recently formed company, Oaffney, Uahagan & Van Kttcn, whoso purpose It Is to erect on eight acres of land on Hiker's Island the 12,500,000 garbage disposal plant. The company, according to the terms of the contract outlined yesterday by Mr. Welch, Is to dispose ot the refuse ot these boroughs ror nvc years, nml at the end of the five years turn the plant over to the city for 1,500,000. In IMac-r of Barren Island Plant. The proposed Dlnnt. It Is understood. wilt take the place of the plant on Bar ren Island of tho New York Sanitation ltlllzatln Company, which Is now Im volved In litigation with the city re gardlng Its own business and the pro Jected enterprise. The whole proposi tion will come before the Hjard of Al dermen In the application for the li suauce of !,!io0,000 corporate stock In connection with the work. Residents. real estate Interests, manufacturers and others In The Bronx and Cjueens have already protested against the proposed plant, and the brief .Just submitted cm- tKslles their pleas. The brief sets forth that If the plant Is built on Hiker s Island, with an Intended rapidly of 2,r.ou tons of garbage u day, southeast winds, prevalent especially In the summer months, cannot fall to bring uhout the most offensive, obnoxious and disagreeable smells and fumes that could possibly be Inflicted on a commu nity. U Is nrgued that properly values would be affected to the extent of about 50 per cet.t. and that the plant would be detrimental to tho health and Inter est of people In both Bronx and Queens. VMicn The Bronx and Uueens people first protested the city authorities argued mat the pronosed Want, modelled on the Cobwcll disposal plant at New Bedford, M.tss., would not send forth any objec tionable odor?. Thereupon Mr. Welch, several engineers and others visited the acw Bedford plant and found, accord ing to allldavlts, photographs, &c, pre sented In the brief, that not only was the "model" plant at New Bedford situ ated In an Isolated and desolated sec tion, a mtln to a mile and a half from the nearest house, but thai It was con demned by New Bedford residents, property owners, &c as a nuisance. The Btonx and (Jueens brief also con tends that the erection the plant on Biker's Island would mean a proces sion of no less than twenty-two scows tilled with stench laden refuse through the Kast ltlver every day, to the offence of and detriment to the health not only of The uronx but to users or ferryboats, coastwise craft and yachts and to In terests along both sides of the Kast ltlver, especially in the hot days of the summer. Tho brief says that an epi demic nmy be caused which would have a disastrous result upon the health of the city. It It contended that, while the In tended election of the plant at Biker's Island would replace the works of the New York Sanitation L'tillzatloti Com pany, on Barren Island, seven oilier refuse disposal plants would remain In operation to annoy the residents of ltockaway, Neponslt and other seaslds resorts, wli'le the new plant presented a nuisance to The Bronx and Queens. The Interests lighting the plan fear too thai If nn disposal plautttalns a foot hold on the Island others will follow. Mr. WeMi said Jestetday that every enterprise, private and public. In The Bronx was opposed to the plan and that business Investment approximating J'JflO.noo.ooo In Tim Bronx would be affected by It execution, MANY PARTIES AT CLUBS deprecated the fact that the contract hint been awarded without notice to the affected Interests and residents. The people of The Bronx Iind the affected portion of Unions, lie said, are aroused as never before "to oppose this Impend ing and dangerous nuisance." rr.iNeinvv, N. .1., Feb. 21. Prince Ion's Junior class began the spring term social season here to-night with Its annual promenade dance In the univer sity gymnasium. More than 300 guests came to Prince ton for Uie "prom." some, of them as early as yesterday morning. There has been a continual round of parties at the different upper class clubs and the "prom" and concert of ttie musical dubs to-night proved a fitting climax to a season of unusual gaycty. Con trary to the usual custom, there were no athletic contests to afford enter tainment to tho visitors and as u con sequence the smaller parties wero em phasized more than ever before. The l'e.tms) Ivanla basketball game, which wouM have been a feature, comes a day too late. The "prom" opened at 10 :30 P. M. and was preceded by a concert Klven by the combined musical clubs In Alexander Hall. The gymnasium was beautifully decorated for the "nrom" In an attrac tive color scheme of canary' yellow and j wmte similar to mat empioyeu iu n sophomore "pra.n" last spring, supper was served at the end of the thirteenth dance at small tables In the southern end of the gmnaslum.

In college an adeipiate amount of time should be given to the study of child hygiene, physiology and child psychology In order to produce trained mothers; a mother who can care for and rear a child Intelligently. Kven If a mother wishes to hire Hit- care she should have sultlclent knowledge to know whom to biro and how to supervise. The women who do not look forward to motherhood cannot escape thin re sponsibility. Any "socially conscious" woman must study these fundamental tnatteis and must do her part to rear healthier, happier children. If she does not exjiect to have children of her own, there arc still many children who need her. She can h.
