New Problem Looms Unless

PARIS.—The world soon must
the problem of the tired business
woman unless feminism is checked,
warns Mrs. Alice Foote MacDougall
of New York.

She has more money than she wants,
she says. She would like to retire
and spend the rest of her life just
being womanly. Hut she can t.
Says Own Case Pitiable.
A million dollar coffee business in
New York, which she built up from
nothing in five years' time, has her
pinned to the wheel of success.. She
is, to her own mind, a pitiable object
—"the successful business woman
whose affairs leave her no time for
the things that make life worth
Three mSnths' travel on business in
Europe has only deepened her con
viction th!U woman’s place is in the
home. She disapproves of the grow
ing feminism among European
“Women cannot be too womanly
for their own happiness,” she an
nounced in Paris. "To my mind the
happiest women I have seen are the
Italians, who are supposed to live in
a semi-feudal state. They live for
their husbands and their families.
Their homes are beautiful. The world
could learn a lesson from the marvel
ously happy women of Italy."
The American business woman, ac
cording to Mrs. MacDougall. is fol
lowing the lead of the American busi
ness man. She is becoming more and
more absorbed in "deals" and in golf.
If she tries to combine marriage with
business the children suffer. If she
gives up marriage for business the
wo than herself eventually suffers the
penalty o# a lonely old age.
Mrs. MacDougall went into business
to support her children. She has
taken two sons into her business. Her
grown daughter lives a sheltered life
and has no desire to copy her mother’s
business career.
50 Members of Ancient Order
Conduct Ceremonies at
Correspondence of the Associated Press.
SALISBURY. Eng.—Within the
Double Circle at Stonehenge, the
gneient seat of Pruidical worship, 50
members of the most Ancient Order
of Druids, attired in purple cassocks,
•whife surplipes and red head-dresses,
celebrated their annual Service of Re
membrance. *
Gathered in horseshoe formation
and facing the sun. the modern
Druids used ceremonies which they
declase were exactly the same as
those used more than 1,560 years ago.
The Chief Druid. Dr. MacGregor-
Reid, conducted the ceremonies, which
consisted mostly of incantations with
upraised arms, to which the members
replied in unison-
A modern touch was injected by
the singing of such a well known
hymn as “Lead. Kindly Light.”
Druldism Was the ancient religion
of England, before the approach of
Christianity. Many Druid eeremonies
were perfromed in the forests under
spreading trees. At Stonehenge are
tremendous stones said to have mark
ed the spot of one of their places of
worship* < *
Bryn M*wr Dsan Says Outside
Interests Are Benefit to
’? Children.
Bv the Associated Press.
PHILADELPHIA, July 23,—Mothers
who have careers outside the home
may not be neglecting their children
but benefiting them, believes Mrs.
Helen Taft Manning, dean of Bryn
Mawr College.,
♦‘Nowadays, because of facilities to
lighten housework, there is far more
danger of a woman becoming too com
pletely absorbed in the lives of her
children,” says Mrs. Manning.
“It is better for children to feel
they are leading their own lives, and
they gain' much by not being with
their mothers every minute. A moth
er cannot measure her influence over
( j»er children by the number of heure
ghe spends with them.**
