VICTOR PRO WELL, PRESIDENT OF THE BOY’S CLUB, TALKS ABOUT “TAG DAY” - I. By DOLLY DALKYMPLE "Tag Day" for the benefit of the Boys f lub has come to be looked forward to with genuine pleasure by the good citi zens of Birmingham, for on that occasion they have the chance to contribute to one of the best philanthropies that has ever been established in this district. The boy, upon whom all our future cit | izenship depends, is the beneficiary of this worthy work, and surely in no better cause could humanity put its faith and extend its practical helpfulness. Boys are just boys at the best, and when they are growing up amid all sorts of temptations and embarrassments they need more than ever to be protected, to be sheltered, to be influenced for good. The adolescent period is specially sen sitive to outside influences. Dove, hope and ambition are in the ascendency; the mystery of the future weaves its romance around every object, the emotional and spiritual natures are ready to respond to any influence, for good or evil. The | subconscious self is more active than at any other time of life. On the other hand, mental balance is often lost. Youth is sensitive and brood -tig, with a keen fear of ridicule and sus ceptible to every passing influence. Un consciously, the boy takes as an ideal some man whom ho admires and, even if he possesses traits which ai*c naturally distasteful to him, he often makes them his own. Such a one, like a chrysalis, trying to free cither from its entangling covering, needs the "big brother" arm to lean upon—to depend upon. Most of the sins of the world are the sins of youth, and most of the sins of youth are because of lack of ideals. It is only in recent years that the pe riod of adolescence has received the at tention that it deserves. Youth has not had the care and protection it needed at that period. But more and more is scien tific research teaching us vital truths which throw the light of intelligent study upon this period, so vital to the future welfare of the individual. Mrs. Victor Prowell, who is president of the Boys’ club, is a worthy successor to Mrs. W. D. Nesbitt, whose splendid work is always pointed to in this connec tion as one of the most unselfish and one of the most beautiful examples of kindness of heart that has ever been man ifested. Mrs. Prowell is deeply interested in the result of "Tag Day," which has been named for next Saturday as money is very badly needed to carry out the plans trial are proposed for the coming year plans which necessitate more money be cause of the tremendous growth of the work and the territory over which these activities extend. In speaking of "Tag Day ’ yesterday, Mrs. Prowell said: "The Boys’ club comes before the peo ple but once during the year, and from the generosity of our citizens on that day we depend largely to carry us through the whole year financially, except for a few private donations that are made. The Boys’ club has done some splendid work during the past year, and to Mr. Burr Blackburn, the capable and efficient superintendent, too much praise cannot i be given. His influence over the boys, his tremendous talent for coping with situa ! tlons. and bis undaunted courage in everything'connected with the work is | very commendable and it is entirely thr mgh him that our splendid progress has been made." "What primarily are the plans that are to be carried out this year?" I asked. "The community work which Mr. H’ackburn and his associates have ar ranged for the year of 1914." said Mrs. Prowell, "is briefly outlined in the an nual report of the Boys’ club. The idea is— "1. To keep in touch with the boy sit uation In Birmingham, and through per sonal friendship to encourage the work ing beys as much as possible. "2. To co-operate to the fullest ex*c it with volunteer boy workers where/er they may be found. "3. To hitch up 100 big brothers to boys needing friendship and encouragement. "4. To assist in the conduct of an inves tigation into child labor conditions, nod co-operate with the child la'* »r commit tee. "j. T i j-<v\o ine Playground asgoclu-.ion, tli.- V r. A., the juvealle court and the public schools, through an active in terest in their problems from the angle of the needy and working boys with poor home conditions. "H. For the unemployed: To conduct an i employment bureau. To give everj boy a chance, and to fit square blocks into square boles. To keep the boy in*school when his circumstances do not require that he should work. To furnish a tem porary home to homeless boys, find them work, supply them with clothing and lo cate them in good homes. Supply cloth ing and books to other needy boys. "7. For the Boy Scouts: To furnish an assistant to the scout commissioner on half time. To furnish complete camp equipment and assistance at the summer «amp. To organize new troops and as sist in general scout work. "N. For the Sunday schools: To assist in thoroughly organizing the men teach ers of boys, and the older boys’ coun cil. To assist In conducting a summer training camp for leaders. To assist in conducting a training course, weekly, for older boys, training them for leader ship among younger boys. To assist in conducting a state older boys’ conference. To otherwise co-operate with the Bir mingham Sunday School association and the local schools in working out their boy problems. 9. For the News Boys. To furnish a high school boy as inspector of badges, giving half time to the newsboys. To lower the number of newsboys appearing before the juvenile court to a minimum. To give the newsboys a free camp for 10 days. To give the annual dinner for 230 newsboys for the newspapers of Birming ham. and to conduct the annual White Hibson barbecue, as well as other social occasions for the boys. To make the Newsboys’ Republic, and the Newsboys' court a real influence in the lives of the boys." mer, Mrs. W. Rockett. Mis. W. T. Mackey, Mrs. N. M. Strickland, Mrs. R. T. Campbell, Mrs. F. E.

VICTOR PROWELL President of “the Boys’ club” “Have any of these plans been put Into practical execution?" l asked. “Much oi the work bus been satisfac torily launched," said Mrs. Prowell. “Many more ‘Big Brothers have been secured than ever before, due to the Big Brother’ superintendent, Mr. ltalph liar iow, and this spirit is at work in its ef fective quiet way in the lives of a num ber of needy boys. VV e are delighted to say that our relations with public school, playground, Boy Scout and Sunday school workers are becoming more cordial every day. ri4s time iast year wnen a needy uuy came to our attention we could do no more than attempt to meet his immediate needs, but we are now able to touch him through others in many ways. W e are doing our best to spread the influence of the Boys’ club, and believe that we stand closer to the problem today than we did a year ago. Last November saw lij boys placed in good positions, two boy scout troops or ganized and rejuvenated, the newsboys given a delightful outing and barbecue at the home of Mr. White Gibson on Shades mountain, live bikes personally conducted by our superintendent, and live district older boys council meetings held on Hundays. We spoke to two women’s meetings, one a club, and the other a missionary union, on the work of the Boys’ club, 'the newsboys’ court has held several meetings, and the behavior of the newsies is improving every day.” “During the year of 1913,” Mrs. Proweil continued, “nearly 8<X>, or an average of HU boys per month, called at the office tor help in securing work, or advice, 190 were found work, 40 were persuaded to return to school 12 were returned to their homqs in places out of the city, 20 were sup plied with clothing, 14 were placed in night school, 30 were given instruction in sex hygiene, L’l were given attention by physicians, some of them undergoing op erations, over 100 were advised along per- j sonal lines, ami hours of your superin- ' tendent's own leisure time was spent in j their company in an effort to meet their needs. Tin- claims of Jesus Christ were presented to them as opportunity offered, and many of them wore urged to enter tu* Christian life In words as nearly adapted to boy understanding as we know how; 40 boys have been given cheap board, and assisted while starting out in their business life. Some of these are now well established. Others have drifted out of the city without showing any improve ment.” “The main tiling that lias been accom plished,” said Mrs. Proweil. “Is the estab lishment of the Boys' home, which has proven a most valuable asset in the work. An inexpensive and quite inadequate place is established at the First Presbyterian parsonage and we need better equipment and more room, and that wo want to provide this year from Tag Day proceed? "When we consider that one year ago the Boys’ club launched into a plan of effort hitherto unknown in the south v/ith no precedents to follow' the way leading through unknown fields, we have every reason to congratulate ourselves upon having successfully established our rela tions as a factor in the new social life of Birmingham. "I think we bear the distinction of be ing a unique organisation; one that Is selfless; instead of its activtiies tending to building up itself, all its efforts are outward, promoting and developing other individuals, organizations and movements. "With practically no equipment or physical effects, we hay® the opportunity of growing into the very purest spirit of social service as described by Edward Devine in these words; “The spirit of so cial service working cotinuouously, ac cording to its light intelligently, and ac cording to its strength persistently, for the promotion of the common welfare—the common welfare as distinct from that of a party, a class or a sect or a business interest or a particular institution or a family or an individual.

We have no mem bership; nothing physical upon which one could place his hand and say, This is the Boys' club.’ The Boys’ club is a spirit, un cramped by narrow quarters not tied down to apparatus so that it may reach out into the boy needs of a whole community, as the leaven, which at I ast has the opportunity to leaven the whole lump. Thus being unselfed we are able tu disarm suspicion, our held is constantly widened and our usefulness increased. "It seems peculiarly fitting that such a work should be supported by the pul)- j lie ‘generally through an appropriation! from tlie city’s funds, and the manna j which falls from the hands of a thou sand unselffish unnamed friends on our annual Tag Day. As we constantly increase our activities, we should not fear any lessening of publie support, it is my hope that we might gradually ouild up a force* of consecrated, efficient, un selfish young men, who will specialize and enlarge upon the different lines >f work already begun.

H. concerning signatures, i would add that not only is the name of Miss Emmeline 'Carson after her marriage to Mr. John Jones not Mrs. John Jones, hut it is not Mrs. Emmeline Jones. That is to say, the title of “Mrs.'* is no more a part of her name than is Mr. a part of her husband's or than Miss was a part of her name before marriage. Before mar riage her name Is Emmeline Carson, but. having reached maturity, she cannot be addressed or mentior^d with propriety without the title of courtesy of Miss by other than intimate friends. After her marriage to Mr. Jones her name is Em meline Carson Jones. She is therefore known as Mrs. John Jones, or Mrs. Em meline C. Jones, according to circum stances of her choice. It is just as im proper for her to sign herself Mrs. John Jones or Miss Emmeline Carson before marriage. Miss Carson may properly in rlose a prefixed Miss in brackets when necessary for the guidance of her corre spondent. Mrs. Jones may, when writing to a stranger, and her descriptive name, Mrs. John Jones, to her real name, Em meline Carson Jones, inclosing it in brack ets and placing it underneath or to the left of her signature. ANNA F." Using a Bread Mixer "In the Corner recently Mrs. L. L. K. asked for directions as to the use of a bread mixer. Perhaps some suggestions might prove a help to her. On the lid it says, ‘Turn three minutes.* I turn mine as much as 15 many times. Three min utes will do in mixing bread down a sec ond time. A book of instructions came with mine, which I follow in a general way. Three quarts of flour to one quart of liquid is the general rule. As flour varies in consistency, it may mean three heaping or three scant quarts of flour. J set my sponge over night in the mixer, using one and one-third quarts of warm water for two loaves and a pan of 12 rolls. Jn the morning, before putting the cross piece and mixing rod in, 1 stir m the remainder of the flour, shortening, and salt. All liquors must be in the bottom. 1 use a wooden spoon. When all ingre dients are in, put in the cross piece with mixing rod and turn until the dough forms a fall ‘satiny’ to the touch. Raise, leav ing mixed all together. Cover when light, fasten to your table as before, and turn until a ball is formed. Raise again, turn ing until a ball is formed. Unclamp the cross piece and lift all out with tilt dough. Form into loaves. ^ , “HOUSEWIFE.’’ Companies Send Directions “The following may interest those seek ing help in photo play writing: By writ ing to any company directions for writ ing scenarios, which include a model scenario, will be sent any one on request and for postage.
