TIMELY TOPICS OF
INTEREST TO SOCIETY
Recent Developments in the Vulcan “Matters” Somewhat Sen
sational-Women Make Rejoinder. •
BY ANNIE KENDRICK WALKER.
THE women of the Cadmean circle,
far from being condemned for their
action in regard to "Vulcan” should
“be commended, for the courage and pub
lie spirit they have so loyally displayed
fnprotesting against a measure that would
make of the city a laughing stock for gen
erations to come. It may be finally and
definitely stated, without mincing matters
that Vulcan, as a business venture, is an
excellent proposition, but as a work of
art he i9 an atrocity. The women, in
■peaking, have, of course, solely the wel
fare of Birmingham at heart.
"And the women know!” observed a
prominent citizen yesterday, with a hu
'morous twinkle in his eyes. "The ladies
"know and we don’t—there’s tho plain En
glish of it! What does a man know about
art, anyhow? Somebody said Vulcan
was all right once and wo took it on its
Vace value.
"Now they say he’s all wrong. And
Mwhat's more, they prove it! What is to
fee done about It?”
j If the resolutions passed by the Oom
wnercl&l club or any other local club w'ero
HLaws of the Medes and Persians it would
fee a right unfortunate thing for Bir
mingham. Luckily, a measure taken, per
ibaps without sufficient consideration, can
The withdrawn before it Is too late and
*he Iron Mam not erected In the city’s pre
blnct* on a spot bo utterly out of propor
tion and so inadequate as the place re
Icently selected by tho City Council.
"Poor statuary and inartistic rrionu
tments have been the plague of nearly
■very progressive city in America. The
Jfate of the 'Columbus,’ on tlie Lake Shore
driveway In Chicago, Is a recent exam
ple,” said Miss Ethel Armes, in mention
ing the Vulcan Incident, "the statue
Nwhloh, by the wray, is almost as groat a
felons troaity as Vulcan, wras erected tin
ner protest and at enormous expense. The
blight after it was unveiled a committee
fef citizens assembled with ropes and
Jchaln9 and dragged the thing off its
[pedestal and clear away into the south
tend of Jackson park, where they bM it
ftwith bales of haw and cart loads of ashes.
BThere It lies to this day, prone on the
Aground, the weeds growing over it, and
(that’s what ought to happen to Vulcan.
JThen, another Instance—some few years
Iback, however! The equestrian statue of
foackson in Lafayette park, which is one
k>f the nightmares of Washington city,
;wnfl unveiled with burning of Incense and
vRll (the rest, some time in the fifties, ac
cording to tho records. Thackerny was
present at the ceremonies. He commented
Smlldly, 'That Is an Impossible man on
more impossible horse, with a moRt
impossible tail!’ By tills the great nov
elist made Implacable enemies! And tlie
ptatue stood and stands today, laughed at
1b y every artist and visiting stranger In
Washington. Washington is simply
crammed with awful things they nil re
gret, now' it’s too late! Tlie Vinnle Ream
statue of Farragut 1b another. The
sculptor was only a young girl when that
was done, and tho committee appointed
to select from tho models was composed,

Greatest Blessing' to Women

"For years I tras sorely afflicted with
Simples, freckles and splotches. I tried

and dieted myself for weeks, but the pimples
Jgot worse. I then used two packages of
jrladinola and one of Egyptian Cream, just as

who frankly confessed. ‘We don't know
anything about statues, but we do know
she's a right pretty girl who made it!’
and they went unanimous on the Ream
Farragut! That’s straying off a trille
from the Vulcan business, but 1 do hope
the gentlemen will think again—and sim
ply look at Vulcan.”
The Vulcan committee appointed by
the Council of Women's Clubs gave out
the following statement yesterday:
Judging from several articles which
have appeared in the papers lately, the
attitude of the Council of Women's Clubs
of Birmingham, on the subject of plac
ing Vulcan, has been entirely misunder
stood. In an answer to the protest of
the Cadmean Circle it was stated that
the reason Capitol Park had been chosen
for the site, was because it was the only
available situation, it having been found
impossible to obtain a spot on Red
Mountain. The Council then determined
to do all in its power to secure a foot
hold for the great statue on the summit
of the ridge, and after having most en
couraging Interviews with Mr. Topping in
behalf of the Tennessee Coal and Iron
Co., and with Mr. Sterling Wood, made
its report to the finance committee of the
City Council. This committee then de
cided to hold the matter in abeyance for
two weeks, pending a definite offer from
cither of these sources. At the end of
that time if none Is forthcoming, the
city's grant to the Commercial Club of
a site In Capitol Park to remain.
The women represented in the Council
of Women’s Clubs have simply the good
of the city.of Birmingham at heart. If
Vulcan is erected In Capitol Park, it will
only mean an additional expense within
a few years, for public sentiment will
undoubtedly demand Its removal in time.
Vulcan is no work of art to beautify a
park. He will look absolutely incongru
ous amid civilized surroundings. He will
dwarf the houses about him and render

VERSUS THE COMIC PAGE.
The day of the so-called "funny page”
of the Sunday newspapers *« drawing to
Its close. Tile coming of "Little Nemo"
is one of the first notes to trumpet the
change—a change not onfy In spirit but
In excellent and legitimate drawing and
delicate fancy—good and wholesome for
children and grown-ups alike. The dis
torted and absurd "Happy Hooligans,"
"Seanders," am} alt that breed, together
with othor pages more widespread and
subtly demoralizing in their > Influence
than the casual reader realtzes-tall these
are being seen at last In their proper
light, are being condemned and protested
against by every wise parent, teacher,
artist and school In the country.
In the convention of the International
Kindergarten Union held In Milwaukee
two days ago the matter was taken up
In detail, Its baneful Influence esthetlcal
ly, Intellectually and morally, proven,
and recommendations to bring the mat
ter to the attention of mothers' clubs and
parents' association taken. This Is not
by any means the first action taken
against the “funny paper." The Mothers'
Copgress took up the puestlop six years
ago, and barred out the page from the
nursery, inasmuch as could be done. In
this city Mrs. Alice D. Orr has been
foremost amorift the group of advanced
teachers who has worked earnestly to,
abolish this iniluenee from the lives of
the children she has taught and teaches
toduy.
The matter In gpneral has been held all
too lightly by the average parent, dis
missed with a grin and shrug of the
shoulders, but the evil effects on chil
dren have been far reaching and deep
seated; slang. Impertinence, petty mis
chief, false Ideas of humor and art, de
ceit and the Impossible "Smart Alec”
spirit—all the elements so condemned by
foreigners in the modern "American
child "—have been fostered and engen
dered by thlB "funny page.” In a well
bred English household tho thing would
not be tolerated one second.
Now at length it Is-being supplanted
and tlie fanciful and artistic conceptions
of "Little ..emo" rise, a new sun. Wal
ter Blackmail's page likewise strikes a
new key, being often an exact and typi
cal expression of the genuinely humor

A FRENCH SOIREE.
A French soiree will be given by some j
of the French pupils of the Pollock- j
Stephens on Monday evening, April 1(5.
and a French play will be given by the
members of t*he senior class. The synop
sis is as follows:
Josephine, the house-maid of a wealthy
lady in Paris, fancies that she lias great ]
poetical talent, and Is reciting with i
many gesticulations a play which she \
has written. She knocks her mistress’ ;
favorite vase from the table and breaks j
it, and has just finished picking the pieces |
from the floor when inadame enters.
She tells Josephine that she has been i
suddenly called away and leaves her |
house and her child. Josette. in her care, j
Madame De Sontan has hardly gotten
out of the 'house when Josephine rings
the bell and summons the cook and the
chambermaid to the parlor to rehearse
the play in which both of them have
parts.
Just as they are about to begin tlie
salad woman and the laundress, who
have found no servants in the rear of
the house, enter and seat themselves as
the audience.
While the maid is going through her
part madame, who has missed the train,
comes in the room. Of course all the
servants are frightened, and try to si
lently slip out.
Madame inquires ror nor aaugnier, oui
Josephine understanding her to say the
vase, tearfully explains that It (she) Is
broken.
Naturally this thoroughly frightens
madanie and the misunderstanding is not
straightened out until Julie enters and
explains, and Josette herself enters.
Later t'he mended vase Is brought 1n by
the rook. Madame Is thoroughly surprised
to see It In the cook’s hands and asks an
explanation. Josephine explains and is
very penitent. Madame pardons all of
them upon their promising to never again
behave in such a manner.
