They are dis turbed by the threat of war now, as they were just before the World War, and they refuse to accept the view that the present business 're cession' is inevitable and must be so accepted. This state of mind is gen-, eral in all parts of the United States,” said Miss Marion Martin, assistant chairman of the National Republican Committee, at a meeting of the League of Republican Women, yesterday after noon at the Mayflower. Scorning repeated reports to the ef fect that the Republican party is dead. Miss Martin insisted that Republican women’s clubs were active and ener getic. She announced a plan to fed erate the isolated units throughout the country, had been drawn up and ap proved by a majority of the State com mitteewomen. ‘‘Such a Federation," she explained, “would provide a means through which ideas and programs could be exchanged and would make possible co-ordinated plans which would be of great help to the party. One of the important functions of these clubs is to “get out the vote.” She suggested one of the best ways to keep club members interested was to keep them active in the work of the club, and said that every member could make some contribution to club progress. Benefit Bridge Set. Miss Martin, who has aharge of women’s activities for the National Re publican Committee travels around the country helping in the plans and organization of women's clubs. She re ports women are alarmed about pres ent trends. “They have an issue now in which they can subordinate per sonalities to principles,” she said. “Liberty and freedom are being threatened as never before. Women realize that continual emphasis on the “haves” and “have nots” will builo up class distinctions that will rob their children of the opportunities to which they are entitled. They will fight to correct this situation.” Miss Martin was introduced by Mrs. James A. Wentz, chairman of the Pro gram Committee for the league. Mme. Cantacuzene. the president, presided. Reports were heard. It was an nounced the plan for a reception had been abandoned and that in its place a benefit bridge party would be held in the near future.
