Clubs Brackenridge Club To Install Friday In Alexandria Newly elected officers of the National M. Eleanor Brackenridge Club will be installed at a meet ing to be held at 8 p.m. Friday at the Alexandria YWCA which also will honor the recipient of a loan scholarship for medical study next year. A feature of the entertainment will be a musical program to be sponsored by a group of students from the vocal department of the George Washington High School under the direction of Arden Schofield. The honor guest will be Miss Agatha Sobel of Washington, who will enter the University of Chi cago Medical School in Septem ber. Miss Sobel was recommended by the club for a student loan fund from the estate of George W. Brackenridge, late Texas philanthropist and brother of the Texas educator for whom the club is named. The club was given the privilege this year of suggesting medical students for several $2,000 loan funds from Mr. Brackenridge’s estate and Miss Sobel is the first to be selected from this area. Mrs. Frederick S. Speakman will be installed as president of the club. Other newly elected of ficers are Mrs. Margarette An drade, vice president; Mrs. Frank Mason, recording secretary; Mrs. John R. Dennis, corresponding secretary; Mrs. France Matting ley, treasurer, and Miss Frances Harris, director to the District Federation of Women’s Clubs. Miss Harris is the retiring presi dent of the club. The officers will be installed by Mrs. Penn Harrison Howard of Alexandria, a charter member of the club. Mrs. Howard and Mrs Frank Mason will be hostesses for the meeting. Founded in Washington 12 years ago, the M. Eleanor Brack enridge Club has been devoted to the promotion of friendship, a program that has resulted in sev eral projects in the field of in ternational relations. The club recently decided to raise money for a medical stu dent loan fund for women in memory of Mr. Brackenridge whose estate is aiding a number of medical students. The club here is enlisting the co-operation of sister clubs in other states in this project. The club’s founder, Mrs. Erich W. Schwartze, is the widow of a physician. r~ THESE WOMEN! —By Gregory d'Alessio "I don’t know what she’s so excited about.

There’s no doubt of i^ in my mind from your letter: “My husband is becoming a problem drinker. Dr. Popenoe. That’s a polite way, I believe, for calling him a drunkard! The habit has been growing on him for the last few years. During the first 12 years of our marriage he drank socially, sometimes a little more than was good for him, but it didn’t interfere with his work. Lately, it has been getting the best of him. His business has not been doing well since the war, and he finds it too easy to drown his sor rows in the bottle. That makes business still worse. His alcohol ism has interfered seriously with our sexual life; it has begun to alienate old friends, and our chil dren are losing respect for him. “Time and again I have pleaded with him, upbraided him and pointed out his folly. At my re quest our clergyman has exhorted him fervently. His mother, to whom he is deeply attached, has repeatedly told him that he is breaking her heart. He promises to do better, and then immediately does worse. The more I implore him to repent, the more he drinks!’’ Of course. What else could you expect, Mrs. O’B., if you studied his case with an open mind? He has never learned how to face his problems like a grown man. He gets to feeling that he is a failure in life and he drinks to escape from this feeling. Now, with the best of intentions, you and his mother and the clergyman and no doubt other friends and business associates come along and insist, as force fully as possible, that he is a fail ure. That’s a terrible feeling. He wants to escape from it. How can he escape? He knows only one way, and he follows that way. He gets drunk again. The first thing for a wife to re member in such a case—and there are half a million who face a problem like yours—is never to scold, nag, condemn or denounce. That makes matters worse. Ap proach him unemotionally, with out any attitude of blame, assur ing him that he can solve this problem and, if he wants to try, you’ll stand by him. He may wait several weeks or even months before he takes the first step, but when he is ready (which will often be as he is com ing out of a drunken spell), you can guide him into competent hands—Alcoholics Anonymous, or an experienced and qualified psy chologist, or both, by preference. Then stand by him, as unemotion ally as possible. Expect him to backslide occasionally. Avoid any thing that will increase his feel ing of guilt, shame and remorse— because it is precisely for the pur pose of escaping those feelings that he gets drunk. Nobody can cure him. He’ll have to cure himself, but a good deal depends on you, Mrs. O’B. Not all drunkards can be cured; but it would be hard for any one of them to pull himself up if his wife were continually pushing him down.
