I ( CLUBWOMEN OF THE NATION j Club for Blind Women Is Affiliated With General Federation — Woman Voters Receive Gift —Democratic Women Resume Program. I ! i BT CORINNE FRAZIER. t I M i N unusual club organization— ! I /\ unique, perhaps, for, so far as ! Z-\ known, it is the only one of its A V kind in the world—hes been lormed recently in Berkeley. Calif., »y Mrs. Edgar N. Pickering of Oakland, president of the Alameda County Federation of Women’s Clubs. It is a club composed entirely of blind women (except for one member, its secretary, Mrs. Mary Carroll). It is known as the East Bay Club for Blind Women, and is affiliated with the Gen eral Federation of Women's Clubs. Programs calculated to help the blind will feature the club work of this new group, which was admitted to the dis trict and county federation of its State on December 16. just three months from the time of its organization. Mrs. Elford Eddy, the first woman in the United States to make use of one of the dogs for the blind from the i ' Seeing Eye” organization of Nashville, I Tenn., is the president of the infant i club. Under her direction, with the close co-operation of Mrs. Pickering, the club already has inaugurated as one of its projects for 1930 a program for raising funds to assist the Alameda County Federation in providing scholar ships to secure dogs as “blind leaders” for needy boys and girls. It is the ambition of the federation to provide at least one of these dogs a year to some blind child, and Mrs. Pickering is counting upon her newly organized club for blind women as one of her most i valuable units In this work. Their en | thuslasm. born of a personal under | standing of the tremendous value and ! ! comfort to be derived from these dog ■ ; companions, is spurring them to un i usually successful effort, i Another ambition of Mrs. Pickering's county federation which is to be for warded by the East Bay Club group is that of some day prevailing upon the Government of the United States to provide these trained dogs for each blind soldier of the World War. "If we could aee the accomplishment of this one legislative project,” wrote i Mrs. Pick-ring in a recent letter, "we I would feel that we had justified our i existence. The German government has done this much for their boys, | even with the heavy burden of post j war financial debt rrsting on its shoulders. Surely, it would not be ask | ing too much of Uncle Sam to match their generosity. Our East Bay club women have pledged themselves to aid with this project, as have all of the older clubs in my group.” “Greater community welfare” is the theme of the Alemeda County Feder ation, and the enrichment of the lives of the blind is the guiding motive of the East Bay Club. All of the women who have been chosen officers of the new club are talented despite their handicap. Miss Matilda E. Allison, elected vice presi- ' dent, takes dictation from 11 doctors; Miss Doris O’Brien, treasurer, is a gifted musician, and Miss Marie Ward, corresponding secretary, is an unus ally brilliant student. Mrs. Carroll, recording secretary, who alone has her eyesight, is State i teacher for the blind. ** * * AT the December meeting of the ex ecutive board of the League of Women Voters, the organization accept- SALE OR RENT—HOUSES K NEAR Bth N.E.—ATTRACTIVE'SIX-ROOM brick home; bath: gas. elec., h.-w.h : gootl condition.

YOUNG Chairman of Directors to Head Ex ecutive Committee Soon to Be Formed. > 1 By the Associated Press. NEW YORK, January 4. -Owen D. Young has relinquished the chairman ship of the board of directors of the Radio Corporation of America to be come chairman of an executive com mittee to be formed, officials of the company announced today. Gen. James G. Harbord, formerly president of the corporation, has been elected chairman of the board to succeed Mr. Young, and David Samoff, formerly executive vice president, has been elect ed president. Mr. Sarnoff is 39 years old and came to this country from Russia when a child. He joined the Radio Corpora tion as vice president and general man ager at its formation in 1919. Prior to that he was commercial manager of the Marconi Wireless Telegraph Co, a position to which he rose from that of office boy. The changes in the corporation are interpreted in financial circles to b? part of the plans whereby the General Elec tric Co, of which Mr. Young is chair man. will turn over its radio research and manufacturing activities to subsidi aries of the radio corporation. A similar rearrangement is planned by the West inghou.se Co. Henceforth Mr. Young will represent the financial Interest of the General Electric Co. in the radio corpor ation rather than operating activities, as heretofore. The General Electric Co. and the Westinghouse Co. together own about 20 per cent of the common stock of the Radio Corporation. GOV.
