Washington's Sure-Hit
Advertising Medium
Members of League Meet Today
to Take Aotlon on "Jones'
. Cartoons" as Postcards, '
The "Jones Family Group" has
started a dissension In the rariksrof
the Washington Birth Control LesgusJ
It threatens to line up the member
ship In two factions.
By way of explanation the "Jones
Family Group" Is a cartoon drawn
by K. R. Chamberlain for .ths
"Masses" and widely used In the Nstr
York birth control campaigi of Mrs.
Margaret Banger and her co-workers.
Rocently the Washington BJrth
Control League had a number of post
caida printed with the cartoon on
them, for sending out notices of
The cartoon represents a hopeless,
be-spectacled family of seven, besides
the care-worn father and mother,
with Its members anaemic, deformed,
and III kempt. Below the cartoon Is
the caption "Mr. Jones believes that
family limitation Is criminal."
Some members of the league took
exception to this method of publicity,
and one of the prominent members,
Mrs. Evelyn C. Wldney, 13S6 Kenyon
street, wrote as follows:
"I wish to enter my protest against
sending through the mall postoards
such as I received a few days since,
entitled The Jones Family.' These
cards may be seen by many itoforo
reaching the one to whom sent, and
hy the uninformed and Ignorant, and
the whole purpose and aim of tho
'loague' distorted and vulgarised.
While there la no reason for any
secrecy In the proceedings, I feel
from the very nature of the move
ment It should be conducted with tho
utmost dignity, and that only by sucli
methods can the desired reforms ba
"If the methods to which I object
aro to obtain, I will ask that you re
move my name from your Hat of sui
porters." This and other protests led to a
call for a special meeting of ths
league this evening at the home, of
Its president, Mrs. Anna M. Wcxler,
-100 First street southeast.
Birth control agitation is nothing
ultra-modern; It dates back to tho
early '30's In this country, Charles T.
Halllnan, of the National Birth Con
trol League, told tho Washington Sec
ular League at Pythian Temple yes
terday. Robert Owen and others, the speaker
said, agitated the question of birth
control nearly 100 years ago In this
country, and tho movement Is old and
well-known abroad.
"Mrs. Margaret Sanger has not sub
stantially Improved on the methods of
Robert Owen," Mr. Halllnan said.
The speaker then outlined the cs.uie.1
and the enactment of the so-called
Comstock laws passed by Congrein
early in the '70's, which, he said, wero
fostered by Anthony Comstock, whom
he described as "a vouiik zealot who
I swung like u club the great religious
! vote of the American middle classes."
! The speaker said that Comstock al
Iways allied birth control Information

dissemination of birth control Infor
mation through the malls became a

eral speakers voiced their disapproval
of the repeal of any portion of the
