to the federation, said:
"The form of service of clubwomen to
day Includes the domestic life of the com
cunlty nnd the cultuial life. Any as
sumption that women's participation In
the nffalrs of the world will Injure tho
home Is a false assumption, and It la
the business of women to remedy any
belief of that kind. Tho homo Is the
economic institution, nnd It Is Important
for the women to make tho home nn
economic factor. If social conditions are
to be made wlint they should be, men
and women must co-operate In remedying
the condition.
"When women learn thnt men are as
good as themselves, and when men learn
that women are their equals, then this
great State will take its foremost place
in ninny ways, as It already has In sorno
