YODER. j Woman should be her own manager. This is the opinion of Yvonne de Treville, the soprano who comes io the Columbia Theater tomorrow, in concert. She also holds that the common sense and intuition of woman, provided she has both, is a better guide than the logic of men. "Men do things" she said in a recent interview, "according to precedent and custom, to rule. Women go straight at a thing disregarding everything but the main issue, which is, to obtain a certain result." She tells in the following interview of her success in following out these theories. Tvonno de Treville, world-renowned coloratura, soprano, who is spending a day or two In Washington pending her concert at the Columbia Theater on Tuesday afternoon, November IT, stands back of this statement .vith all the vehemence of her dynamic little personality. ' "It matters not whether a woman is a wife, housekeeper, business woman, or prima donna, let her think, ic'., and manage herself, not allow some man to do it for her. " "For years I was a slave to tho superstition mat x muBt nave a man ager. To be sure, they worried me nearly to death. But I told myself a singer must have a manager. She can't attend to the work herself It Isn't done! "Then, finally, when I was unusual ly exasperated by some delay or bit of poor Judgment, I told myself I didn't care whether it was 'done' or not. I was going to do it! "Now, l am a firm believer in the common sense and intuition of wom an. 3 think it is usually a better guide than the logic of man.

Therefore it was eas Hv 9:30 when, at last, Mary and I sat down to breakfast. Mary was pouring me a second cup of coffee when some one knocked at the kitchen door.

Newspaper Feature Service.) Garden Work in Schools: Shows Effect in Homes School gardens were introduced Into the public schools of the District twelve years ago. but it has only been within the last two years that Washington has been cognizant of the fact. The patient work In the schools toward arousing 'a love of flowers in the hearts of the children, initiated by Miss Susan B. Slpe the teacher of botany in tho James Ormond Wilson Normal School, is beginning to seep through into the home. Not only the school yards and playgrounds have been made over from barren spots of earth into little gar dens of Eden, but the front yards and tho back yards at home are blossoming out with seasonable posies. While other cities' have exDloited' the school garden for some years, its value In Washington was not rocogtuzedruntu long, after it bad been taken up by the educators of Northern and Western cities. The Department of Agriculture has given immense support and en couragement to the movement from its very beginning. Plants, bulbs, seeds, and greenhouse facilities have been do nated, and equally valuable aid is sup plied through the bulletins In regard to planting, cultivating, and harvesting the crops. The school garden encourages the boys and girls in actual out-of-door labor, giving them a practical fund of in formation in regard to the growing ot vegetables and farm plants. It also projects the study of botany from the schoolroom into the open. The chil dren naturally carry their interest home to the improvement of front lawn orl back fence, while the psychological ef fect on the child of contact with flower and shrub, though it is hard to measure, is undoubtedly real and vital. Tho children arc glad to do all sorts of hard work In getting the gardens in condition or In tending the plants, because they have come to know the pleasure that comes when tho garden begins to bloom. Boys haul dirt and spade up the soil. The children like red. and their tastt in flowers runs along the line of alt the plants that are red geraniums, sage, cannas. red tulips, and red nasturtiums. All of the public schools are encour aging the" work of flower gardening and making it as vital a part of the school life as the limited appropriation for that department and the lack of school facilities will permit.
