Congress of Women Planned
In Guatemala City, Aug. 21
Delegates from approximately 35
women’s organization* in 18 coun
tries are expected to attend the
Inter-American Congress of Women
to be held in Guatemala City
August 21-27.
Miss Helolse Brainerd of Wash
ington is general secretary of the

democracy; to determine the most
effective means of co-operation and
to strengthen the ties of friendship
and understanding between the
women of the Americas.”
Miss Brainerd pointed out that
the congress is not a permanent
organization at present, but a rep
x resentative gathering of delegates
named by established women’s as
sociations to represent them at the
Guatemala City conference. "It is
unofficial in the sense that it is
not sponsored by governments, nor
by such institutions as the Pan
American Union or the United Na
tions,” she explained.
Any number of women may con
stitute the delegation of each coun
try. but only two votes will be
allowed each delegation, it was said.
This policy was established by the
Organizing Committee to provide a
democratic basis for action.

Mistral. Chilean poet who received
the Nobel Prize for Literature last
year; Senor Isabel Pinto de Vidal,
