CLUBWOMEN OF THE NATION
Club for Blind Women Is Affiliated With General Federation —
Woman Voters Receive Gift —Democratic Women
! i BT CORINNE FRAZIER.
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.
