South Africa Subject Reception Os Luncheon Address For Q ueen The modern trend away from the land is alluring to the Bantu women of South Africa—often with tragic con sequences, Mrs. John E. Hollo way told the Washington Club yesterday. But there have been some who have made the “giant stride” from primitive bar barism to civilization, she said. Wife of the Ambassador of the Union of South Africa, Mrs. Holloway spoke at an international luncheon at the club’s headquarters at 15 Du pont circle. Mrs. Holloway detailed tri bal customs in the native ter ritories of her homeland and described the Bantu woman “as barbaric yet gentle, ar tistic within the confines of her surroundings.” In the tribes, she pointed out, there are certain moral codes which are strictly ob served. But, when the detri bilised native woman goes to the cities she feels free to break any inconvenient rules, the speaker added. Like country people all over the world who are newly ar rived in the odty, the Bantu women are "bewildered, dazzled and. with their background removed, have none of the old decencies to cling to,” she said. "There is enough work for her —in factories, in domestic service, but alas she has sud denly acquired freedom, and she does not know how to use it,” Mrs. Holloway added. However, the detribilised Bantu woman sends her chil dren to school regularly, Mrs. Holloway reported. The na ; t STORE HOURS: RD. • WISCONSIN AVE.

The mission aries have small influence against him.” Yesterday’s program was ar ranged by the club’s Interna tional Luncheons Committee headed by Mrs. Waverly W. Dickson. A South African theme was carried out in the decorations, with a large flag of the Union of South Africa hanging from the balcony while smaller flags were placed on the speaker’s table. Gladioli, which are native to South Africa, and a figurine of a Bantu woman, loaned by the Em bassy, formed the centerpiece. Mrs. Cloyd Heck Marvin, * club president, introduced Mrs. Holloway to members and their guests during a recep tion which preceded the lunch eon.

It's not so simple as that. But before I analyze the situation, let me give an extract from Betty’s letter. Living on the Atlantic Coast, she is considering a move to Alaska. “Do you think it would be worthwhile?” she inquires. I hear there are very few wom en and plenty of men up there. I am a stenographer, and I am sure I could get a job. I don’t hesitate to tell you that my main purpose in life is to marry. What about Alas ka?” I have known a number of women who went to Alaska and found husbands: and I have known a much larger number who found husbands right at home. Moreover, I don’t know how many women went to Alaska and came back unmar ried. The army has just sent my youngest son to Fairbanks —l’ll ask him for a report which I’ll pass on to the read ers of this column in due time. Girls who have been up there tell me no girl should move there unless she is mature, thoroughly able to look out for herself, and has many inner resources. It would be an interesting experience and a valuable edu cation in many ways; but if it is merely a matter of finding a husband, I don’t think you need to go that far. One of my colleagues at the American In stitute of Family Relations, Dr. Mary Jane Hungerford, has prepared a bulletin, “Where To Meet Men.” I don’t know of any brief state ment as valuable as this, and I’ll be glad to send a copy with the compliments of this newspaper to any reader who encloses a stamped, self-ad dressed envelope with the re quest. Meanwhile, let’s ask whether that is all you need. A girl in your position should first of all ask what she has to offer in marriage. Why should any man want to marry her? With a clear understanding Red Cross Chapter Marks Founders 7 Day Observance of Founders’ Day of the D. C. Chapter of the American Red Cross will take place tomorrow. It will be the occasion for two events mark ing the 50th anniversary of the chapter and will be designated as Mabel Boardman Day since it was the late Mabel Board man who spearheaded forma tion of the unit in her home at 1801 P street N.W., on March 25, 1905, and became an inter national figure in Red Cross. First on the day’s schedule will be a luncheon of all area campaign divisions in the Hall of Flags at the United States Chamber of Commerce when members of the Boardman family will be guests of honor. In the afternoon, ceremonies will be held at District Red Cross Chapter headquarters, 2025 E street N.W., which will include the unveiling of a bust of Miss Boardman. executed by famed New, York sculptor, Herbert Haseltine. In attendance at both the noon and afternoon ceremonies will be members of Miss Board man’s family including her sis ter, Mrs. Murray Crane and her daughter, Miss Louise Crane of New York City. Dan iel W. Bell, D. C. Chapter chairman and Mrs. Crane Vill be principal participants in the unveiling ceremony, A eulogy to Miss Boardman will be de livered by Joseph C. Grew, former Ambassador to Japan, and cochairman of the an niversary committee with John Clifford Folger, who is honor - of her own worth, she should ask herself what kind of a man she is entitled to expect; and whether she is able to rec ognize the kind of man who would be interested in what she represents. Thousands of girls remain unmarried be cause they don’t recognize a good husband when they see one. Finally, if she can meet those tests, she should ask herself whether she knows what to do with the right man when she meets him. Additional thou sands of girls meet good "pros pects.” recognize them as such, but drive them away by their own tactics. They are too ag gressive or too' timid or too adolescent or too unreasonable to get any farther. All this doesn't sound as romantic as the idea of going to Alaska, being recognized at first sight by some Prince Charming, and being swept off your feet into matrimony. But it’s nearer the truth! B M Irk ye $ MISS BOARDMAN ary president of the D. C. chapter and who will preside. Mrs. Arthur Larson, wife of the Undersecretary of Labor will act the “voice” in reading from a text formerly read by Miss Boardman herself. These double-barreled events will mark the second in a series commemorating the chapter’s half-century of service in the Nation’s Capital. Keynote speaker at the noon meeting will be Jennings Ran dolph. A special reading of an official statement made by Miss Boardman in 1931 will be delivered by Mrs. Larson. Club Offers Scholarship A scholarship in the amount of $250 has been allocated by the Capital Chapter of the National Secretaries’ Associa tion to partially finance the secretarial training of a work ing secretary’s daughter in the Washington area. Students interested in the scholarship are to file an ap plication before May 15 with Miss Zelma Hicks, 2377 Champlain street N.W., giving their name, age, address, tele phone number, the school of their choice, as well as their mother’s name, place of em ployment and office number. The award will be made on the basis of personal inter views and a test. Euniee 'Graham, who has charge of this year’s scholar ship award, is past chairman of the national education com mittee.
