Despite Political Policies They
Will Unite on Social
International News Service. ,
LONDON, Feb. 15.—Great Brit
ain’s eight women members of the
House of Commons, although of
different parties and diametrically
opposed to each other on most
political questions, mean to unite in
combating social evils and on ques->
tions vital to the home.
This was decided upon by them
at a dinner given to them by the
Women’s Committee welcoming
them to Parliament, at which they
made speeches concerning their
trials and tribulations as members
of Parliament, and their hopes of
what they will be able to do for
the women of the country.
Lady Astor, who nas now the
nickname of “Mother of the House
of Commons,” as the first woman
member, told in a witty speech of
her trials and warned her new
“children" that above all the one
thing they would need ' most was
an unfailing sense of humor.
Glad She Wore Hat.
“Whether or not I should wear a
hat was one of my first trials,”
said Lady Astor. “I soon discovered,
however, that I should have
shocked most of the male members
as much as if Lady Godiva herself
had appeared.”
The Duchess of Atholl, a new
woman member, confessed that the
question of .wearing a hat had been
her great fear, and it was with a
great sense of relief that she had
found that the new Labor women
members had settled the proMem
for her by appearing without head
gear.- "I do so like to work with
my head uncovered,” she confessed.
Lady Terrington admitted that, al
though she knew “one’s hair does
get awfully untidy,” she would like
to dispense with a hat also.
The speeches foreshadowed close
co-operation between the women
members regarding all matters
vital to feminine Great Britain.
Lady Astor, speaking for the Con
servatives, Mrs. Wintringham for
the Liberals, and Margaret Bond
field for the Labor party, stated
that they would endeavor to co-op
erate, putting causes before cau
cuses in the matter of housing
and infant welfare.
' "Our Maggie*' Speaks.
Miss Bondfield, affectionately
known among the Laborites as
“Oug Maggie,” stood on her chair
to speak and showed all the fervor
of an ardent social reformer. With
flushed cheeks and blazing eyes,
she declared that England could
Show an example to the whole
Research Shows Native Tribes
Also Had Secreta of Happy
Married Life.
(Copyright, 1824, by Cosmopolitan
News Service.)
15.—The noble red man solved the
secret of how to be happy though
married, and jazz music was old
when the American nation was
These interesting sidelights are
phases of new and important dis
coveries relating to the life and
customs of the native tribes of the
West coast, made by Prof. J. P.
Harrington, research associate for
the Heye Foundation of the Museum
of the American Indian, in New
York City.
"Very early in their domestic ex
perience various tribes which
roamed the Pacific slope must have
realized that when married couples
see too much of each other, mar
riage is apt to become a burden
rather than a romance,” said Prof.
Harrington to the Cosmopolitan
News Service correspondent. "The
result of this intuitive sense we
find highly developed in such
tribes as the Yurok, Karok, Hupa,
Chihula and othgr tribes. AU of
these tribes had a mating season
of two months every year. When
this mating season was over the
men left the Indian village and did
not see their wives again until the
following mating season. Hence
there were no divorces.
Was Romantic Lover.
“The Indian was a romantic
lover, and he set the two most
romantic months of the year for
the mating season, namely April
and* May. These were the months
when the country was at its beet,
birds were singing and nature was
in a gay mood. The Indians did
little courting or marrying in the
melancholy months of the fall.
"The homecoming of the Indian
men was a notable event. It was
a period of song and feasting.
“In analyzing numerous Indian
songs of these and other tribes I
find an unmistakable syncopation
running through them. When we
Americans of this day and age talk
about ‘modern jazz’ we are trying
to take credit for a really ancient
“The early Indians were very wise
in natural science, too. They knew
the earth was round, and records
we have found indicate they had
knowledge of a vast ocean to the
east, the Atlantic Ocean. But they
were a very superstitious people
and had developed mental telepathy
to a dangerous degree. They far
surpassed the Kahunas, the Ha
waiian priests, in their power to
hate people to death. Old Indian
chiefs have described to me the
most dramatic of mental battles
staged between two priests, with
the tribes drawn up on either s’de
as tense spectators. These priests
would shriek incantations at eacn
othfcr, grab imaginary thunderbolts
from the air and hurl them, jit
was only a matter of time whpn
one or the other would fall writh
ing to ground, and the old Indian
chiefs told mqr that many times the
defeated priest would die.
Feared White Man
‘The coming of the white man
filled the Indians with superstitious
fear. The white man baffled them.
When the religious teachers tried
to convert our religious beliefs to
them, the Indians could not com
prehend what they were saying.
First, because the Indian knew
nothing about sin. he was unmoral
in many ways, but not immoral,
for there was no moral standard
for him to* go by. So when the
religious teachers told him about
being punished for his sins, he
shook his head in perplexity. And
when Biblican chapters were trans
lated into his native tongue it
might as well have been recited to
him in Greek. To see how utterly
Illogical it was to the Indian mind,
take for example the first verse
of the twenty-third psalm, which
reads: '
“ ‘The Lord is my shepherd, I
shall not want.’
“Translated into the Indian lan
guage it would be:
“ ‘The Chief is my sheepherder, I
shall not miss.
“Is it any wonder that the Indian
did not understand us?”
A new appeal to Mrs. Frank
Harrold, president general of the
United Daughters of the Con
federacy, asking her to recognize
Mrs. Drury J. Ludlow as president
of the Washington division,- was
decided upon last night at a meet
ing of the chapters who walked
put of the district convention here
December 6.
Mrs. Albion W. Tuck, leader of
the opposing faction, has been
recognized by Mrs. Harrold as the
president of the Washington di
vision. The dissenting faction
claims Mrs. Tuck’s election was

Proposed Junket of American

By International News Service.
LONDON, Feb. 15.—Great Britain
is being urged to look forward to
the establishment of Arctic air
bases, as the result of the announce
ment of Secretary of the Navy
Denby that the United States hopes
to claim the North Pole as Ameri
can territory, if it is reached by the
flight of the dirigible Shenandoah.
Commander Burney, M. P., who
is one of the backers of the British
scheme for airship communication
with the dominions, warns that it is
only a question of years before the
Arctic regions or a portion of them,
will play an important part in the
world’s schemes of aerial transport.
Commander Burney sat in his of

“Wrangel Island lies in a straight

"The highest birth rate of all Is

Industrious the whole burden of
maintaining in constantly increas

‘disappearance would simply aug

The peril is a new one. :
“The dysgenic effects of our
present social and political order
have not yet had time to manifest
themselves fully, but there can be
no doubt that the consequences will
be, if they are not checked, the
rapid decay of our nation in

In each generation, according to
the Dean, the cream of all classes
is skimmed off, raised to a better
social position and there sterilized.
It is a foreboding symptom .that
doctors, ministers of religion and
the teaching profession have at
present the lowest birth rate.
"Decline In the birth rate,” con
tinued the Dean, “has prevented a
social revolution and the death of
many millions by famine, but it
has not gone far enough to remove
the danger.”
The Dean declared it was a no-

engaged in it. So acute is the dis
content that many workmen wish
