"VT ÜBSERITS of southeastern Los
V Angeles have ben deprived of
•*-' their most cherllhed possessions
in aid of the cause represented by the
Mothers' congress.
Dollies, mothered so carefully by
household cherubs; toys which have
betn the joy of toddling- infants, Ted
dy bears, the pets of tender Httlo mis
tresses, wonderful picture and story
books thumbed assiduously by earnest
tot*, playhouses dear to the hearts of
babyhood, little dresses once smoothed
proudly by their possesors—all have
gone to make happy other infants and
juvenile* living in the McKinley school
district, to whom the many playthings
of childhood are strangers.
These gifts formed v, most interest
ing centerpiece to tho heaped dona
tions at AkeyVj hall Wednesday when
the Parent-Teacher association of the
McKinley avenue school gave its an
nual shower.
What One Circle Is Doing
It proved a remarkable demonstra
tion of what one of the sixty-four cir
cles of Los Angeles is doing in the
cause of aiding less fortunate human
ity. There were more than 1000 gar
ments in tho gracious donation col
lection. Sacks of potatoes and apples
and boxes of oranges were in evidence,
for the self-sacritlcing women of the j
organization believe that some of the |
luxuries of life in addition to neces
sities also are due their siatPrs and J
brothers who have suffered privations
through ill fortune.
But the crowning gifts were the I
treasures surrendered by Uie little j
daughters and sons of the mothers |
interested in the praiseworthy work, j
That the little ones were learning well
their lessons of self-sacrifice in order i
to make the world brighter, was amply
demonstrated. The litle donors, many j
in number, fairly bubbled with pride
as they laid their valued pets and
toys upon Hid tables and explained
their desires as to the distribution of
the gifts.
In this collection was a group of;
playthings, set apart from the rest, i
Mrs. H. W. Crcvling, president of the i
association, explained the featuring.
Tot Surrenders Treasures
"Yesten'ay morning my doorbell
rang, said she. "I went to the door
and found a flaxen-haired tot thera!
with arms full. She was about S years j
of age and alone. After ascertaining
that /I was the president of the circle
she gravely spread her possesions on
the porch and said. 'Mamma and 11
are going out of town and cannot be at !
the meeting tomorrow so I have
brought some things. This is my Ted
dy boar. You see I have put a good, j
warm mat on him so he won't get'
cold before you give him to some little I
boy or gii'l to take care of. This little i
dress is nice and clean and I think
It will make some other girl happy, j
don't you? Here is a story book all i
about dogs and there are lots of pic
tures in it. Maybe some buy will be
glad to get it. Here is my cupboard i
and this is the scarf that goes on the |
top like a piano. Now you open this
door and here are all the dishes and
this buterfly catcher. Won't some lit
tle girl be glad to have all these things?
And I guess that is all,' she conclud
ed 1 was so interested that I forgot
even to ask the dainty litle creature
her name. I am sorry but am going to
learn her identity as soon as I can."
About 300 women attended the an
nual meeting which resulted in sucli a
generous outpouring of garments, pro
visions, comforta .md toys for the needy

Most women have figures that are
foreign even to their own Ideas. No
woman wants a big abdomen, round
shoulders, hollow back, thick waist
line and then suffer with the many
miseries that are caused from such
Imperfections.
Society demands more of women in
this advanced age of progress than to
retain these old style deformities that
our great-grandmothers thought were
natural for advancing years.
With Mine. Wlllman's • science of

The photograph shows a group of children who brought gifts to the annual parent.teachers' shower at the McKinley avenue school Wednesday
of the district, which is a very large
one.
Befriends Many Children
The results illustrate in no uncer
tain manner the individual work of
one circle of the congress which day
in and day out, throughout the year,
pursues the great philanthroplcal work
indicated by Its score of committees
and boards. In almost every school
of Los Angeles there is a similar or
ganization, the complete unit covering
the entire municipality for the well
fare of every child therein and every
family needing tactful aid, the friend
ship of warm-hearted sisters and the
uplifting Influence of a body devoting
gratis its efforts towards the better
ment of the future generations.
The entertainment afforded by the
McKinley avenue school association
was one which was fully appreciated
by those present. A large hall was
tastily arranged for the occasion. Three
large tables, set with delicate china
i ware and trimmed with smllax and
I carnations, occupied the end of the
! hall £ nd refreshments were served af-
I ter a brief but pleasing program.
The guests of honor, seated on the
I platform, were Mrs. Chalmers Smith,
I president of the state congress; Mrs.
IC. C. Noble, state treasurer; H. C.
i Waddell, chairman mutual benefit com
mittee, -vlrs. A. B. Glass, former state
' recording secretary; Mrs. H. B. Funk,
I ex-president of tho association; Ar

from the greater organizations and
other guests responded to introduc
: tions by Mrs. Crevling.

j McKinley avenue school, who has taken
I up music as a profession, rendered a
| piano solo and was encored enthusl
: astically. Miss Kirkham, leader of the
East Vernon 11. E. orchestra, displayed
splendid talents in a violin solo.
The association is one of the fore
most in active work. Last year a most
effective rally was held as the annual
i affair, in which fifteen homes were
S opened for reception. Each hostess,
' previous to the occasion, called upon
each neighbor in her section and the
result was a total of more than bOO

SAN PEDRO STREET
■■The Truthfulness of the Child" was
the subject discussed at the monthly
meeting' of the San Pedro street school
association. Many interesting experi
ences were related and there seemed
to be a difference of opinion upon
*om points. However, all agreed that
youthhood was inclined to "squib" a
iitllo at times and that parents as
W eil aa teachers should early begin
training the boys and girls that ab
solute truthfulness is necessary to
their happiness, and futures.

ROSE HILL SCHOOL
All mothers should read the advice
regarding school lunches, the result of
a discussion at the January meeting
of the Rose Hill association. Miss M.
C. Biffer, principal of the school,
spoke frome wide experience. She de
clared that many fond mtohers were
indulging their children too generously
as regards the school lunch box.
"A' majoriiy of the children are given '
j too much food," said this speaker. "As
a result the children who dine so heav
ily are dull and drowsy in the after
noon. An overplus of food In the mid
dle of the day is not best either for the
child or the brain.
"Again, mothers should not include
so much meat in the lunches. I would
advise more fruit and less of the
heavier foods."
A lively discussion followed, the
mothers agreeing with Miss Biffer and
admitting that they had not realized
the importance of attenion to this sub
ject.
The association, although young, is
very active in the work. A cup and
saucer shower has been planned and
much work is being outlined for the
future.
DISCUSSION AT VENICE
A subject which will appeal to every
member of the congress was discussed
before the W. ('. T. U. Thursday by
Mrs. C, R. Vance. Her subject was
"Mothers' Confidential Friends."
During the address Mrs. Vance said:
"Do the friends of mothers influence
the children* in our homes? Young
children. I may say even babies, feel j
the Influence at' those about them. A|
sunny, cheerful face, with a. voice o(
sweetness, will bring a smile and re-I
sponsive coo from the baby in your
arms, and how quickly tho tiny one I
will reach out to receive a caress,
"Young mothers, make* your confl- (
dential friends of the sunny, baby- \
loving type. And no matter how in
timate your friends may be, never dis
cuss your children's faults or virtues j
In their presence. The best child can j
be thus ruined, made conceited or |
moody and despondent by person.il
mention of their traits and doings.
"Fathers are the best confidants
when children are discussed. Let it be
behind closed doors. If wrongdoing is
the subject, let prayer in both hearts
ask for guidance.
"But we should consider the influ
ence of li k of confidence between
mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters.
We are so liable to forget our chil
dren have reached the years when
they are men and women and choose
for themselves, but still love and long
for mother's confidence and sympathy.
When their aspirations are natural;
when new friends and relationships
must be formed; then is the time when
the heart is most, slow to give. It
cannot believe in happiness—it can

only share with others, and those, per
haps, comparative Btrangers.
"No mother can realize how ungen
erous she can be until her darling
shows her that all the Joy of life can
not be of her giving—that some of it
must come from other channels. She
receives the fact only because she
must, and finds her graciousness taxed
to the utmost if she entertains the
Idea at all. So, dear mothers, it must
be forever. Only as our hearts can
encompass and Include the joys and
interests of those dear to us will we
be able to keep pace with the ad
vancing life of your boys and girls.
And if that on which your love seemed
to thrive vanishes and love is left
alone, still love on, generously, faith
fully, and extend your sympathy into
every new relation until you know
for a certainty that the Lord loveth
a cheerful giver. Love on, no matter
what comes."

AEROPLANE CIRCUIT
IS NOW PROPOSED
St. Louis Eager to Equal Metropolis
of Southern California —Sue.
cess Here Given Warm
Praise
ST. LOUIS, Jan. 28.—Aero enthusi
asts in St. Louis consider that the suc
cess of the Los Angeles aviation meet
will make the arrangements for a
similar meet here In the spring or fall
a much easier matter than it was
several weeks ago. Los Angeles not
only held an aeroplane tournament in
which world's records were broken, but
one that was financially successful.
In order to bring Paulhan, Curtiss.
Hamilton and others to the meet it
was necessary to post $80,000 in prizes.
Moreover, the other expenses were ex
ceedingly large. But the grandstand
was filled every day and the gate re
ceipts exceeded the total expenditures.
And this when the crowds were forced
to go sixteen miles from Los Angeles
to the aviation field.
The Centennial aviation tournament
held here In October was financed by
merchants in the city. It was suggest
ed after this meet a syndicate finance
the next tournament and charge admis
sions to the aviation field. It now seems
that the formation' of such a syndicate
is not only a possibility but a proba
bility.
Site Being Considered
Members of the Aero club of St. Louis
point to the fact that an average of
more than 200,000 persons surrounded
the aviation field in Forest park every
day of the meet here last October. Their
patience in waiting, even when Curtiss
was not flying and showed little dispo
sition to fly, has convinced the Aero
club members that the interest here in
aeroplaning is extraordinary and that
as a financial undertaking an aeroplane
meet would be successful.
It is important that St. Louis be
able to offer a good field in or nenr
the city where an aeroplane tourna
ment can be held.
Albert Bond Lambert, vice president
of the Aero club; D. R. Francis, one
of the governors and other members
are now trying to find such a field.
They have realized the necessity of
doing this before the conference of the
aero clubs is held.
A possible sight suggested is that
tract of land between the river and
North Broadway, known as the Co
lumbia bottoms.
The space, clear with the exception
of a few rough places, ia about a mile
square. The fact that it is on the river
is one of the advantages, as an aero
plane driver feels safer above water
than above land, and it has also been
suggested that long distance flights
could bo made up and down the river
from this field.
Aviators to Form Syndicate
Another Bite suggested is between the
two lakes at Creve Coeur. This tract is
about a mile wide and two miles long.
Its distance from the city is the chief
objection. Another field suggested is on
the Olive street road about three miles
from the city limits. It could be con
verted into an oval field a mile long
and half a mile wide.
News dispatches from New York
state that a syndicate is being organ
ized to exhibit the famous aeroplane
drivers. Such a syndicate W-Uld bring
