Sentiments Expressed at Con
gress Exercises Meet
with Approval
Speaker Says Boys and Girls
Should Know Truths of
[Special to The Herald.]
LONG BEACH, March 31.— Scores of
women in attendance at the Reciproci
ty day exercises of the California Con
gress of Mothers, held here today,
crowded around Dr. Kate Warring
. Barrett and Mrs. Hester Griffith this
afternoon to express their approval of
the remarks made by these two speak
ers along the lines of equality of the
boy and the girl and the subject of so
cial purity.
"The under world Is not a necessary
part of any city," Mrs Griffith, presi
dent of the Southern California W. C,
T. IT., had declared. "Such an idea is
monstrous. Laws of nature making
such things necessary never were cre
ated. Otherwise, our God would not
be worthy our worship."
She created a sensation by an em
phatic »statement that sex physiology
Hhould be taught the little boys and
girls in the public schools. This was
applauded heartily.
"Teach them the truths of sex physi
ology while they are yet young," she
isald. "Teach them they ore to bo the
future parents of children before the
age when the subject will bring other
thoughts; teach them the facts, and
the children will grow- up better. It
would be the best thing for the race."
The teaching of the parents is often
improper, she declared, and leads to a
double standard of morality, which is
frequently responsible for the falling of
women. The double standard of moral
ity she asserted to he untenable and
Dr. Barrett's talk, which just pre
ceded Mrs. Griffith's, was a plea for
equality in the homo.
"The girl does the work in the home,"
said Bhe, "while the boy is lord of the
house, If he works he is paid for it,
because it eaves the expense of hiring
a man; but the girl drudges on with
out pay, Just because it is a custom
to expect It of her. The girl and the
boy should be treated equally. The fact
that they are not makes it often the
case that when the boy becomes a man
and a husband he does not treat his
wife as he should, and also is unable
to assist her with the housework as he
should be expected to do when she is
"The man of the house should pay
the tills, I believe, but the woman
should re able to help out if the man Is
stricken and made unable to work. I
rejoice In the army of women who are
making their own living. I believe In
equality. We women pay men three
times as much for making our gar
ments as we do women, because thoy
:^ake Uiem better. But I believe wome
n, on the. other hand, can be Just as
good lawyers and physicians as men."
The gathering of mothers at this f.1!-
--day congress was notable. A glance
over the crowded auditorium of Fir: t
Congregational church, at Third 'street
and Cedar avenue, brought to the eye
an impressive sight. Most of the moth
ers present were well past middle age,
and many heads were crowned with
silvery or white hair.
The members of the Long Beach Dis
trict Federation of Patent-Teachers'
associations were hostesses. Mrs. Myra
K. Miller is president of that federa

Theta Mac Lynn of Long Beach played
an organ prelude. Rev. F. M. Rogers,
pastor of the First Christian church,
offered an invocation and Mrs. Princess
Long sang "A Group of Favorites."
Miss Nixon played a violin solo, and
then Mrs. Myra K. Miller extended the
greetings of the Long Beach district,
Mayor Windham followed with a short
address of welcome, in which he indi
cated his conviction that the work of
the federation of mothers was an im
portant and praiseworthy one. Mis.
Trasl;, state vice president, responded,
An hour with Long Beach workers
followed, five-minute talks Ing given,
as follows: "The Ebell Club," Mr».

rell; "Maternity Cottage," Mrs. A. M.
Lord; "Literature," Mrs. O. T. Help
ing, and "Playgrounds," Mrs. F. L.
These women outlined the work of
the various committees along their par
ticular lines, and all reports were so
favorable and so indicative of progress
and great accomplishments of good
that the remarks were interspersed fre
quently with applause.
Musical lumbers by Mrs. W. E.
Wiseman, soprano, accompanied by
Mrs C H Mitchell, and an instrument
al solo by Miss Ethel Putnam followed,
Then came Dr. Barrett's address on
"The Boy and the Girl," and the dis

Today, April l,"April Fool'or "All Fools' Day"
A day set apart for merriment—but merriment at the expense of one's neighbor. As to the
"why and wherefore" of this day of practical jokes, the most plausible conjecture ascribes the
origin of the custom to France, the nation which took the lead over all Christendom in chang
ing over to the Gregorian calendar—the starting of the New Year on January 1 instead of
March 25. Before this change was made the New Year festivities culminated in a feast on
April 1, when courtesies were exchanged, such as the making of visits and giving of gifts.
Then, on New Year's day, January 1, upon the adoption of the reformed calendar, only mock
ceremonial visits were made, and "make-believe" presents bestowed, with the view of making
fools of any who had forgotten the change of date. In 1564 this custom was started, and now,
