General Federation of Women's Clubs,
havp perfected a plan for t»^, greatest
convention in the history of the feder

dates are May 22 to June 8. During
those seventeen days It la expected that

in every state in,, the union, as welt as
some from Alaska, Japan, England, Ha

more than 600 different conventions on
its calendar but from all -Indications
none will equal in attendance the gath

attached to the women's convention by

founded here twenty-six years ago, it
Is the first time since then that the
women have met in New York, It was
Jennie June" Croly, one of the found
ers of the Sorosis, the pionepr women's
clum in this country, who Initiated the
idea of a general convention of women's
clubs in 1889, and the outcome of this
was the holding of the first convention
of the general federation in New York
in the following year when sixty-three
clubs were represented by 126 delegates
and the Sorosis was hostess.
Thirteenth Biennial Meeting.
Chicago, Philadelphia, Louisville,
Denver/ Milwaukee, Los Angeles, St,
L^uls. St. Paul. Boston, Cincinnati. San
Francisco and Chicago again, have been
the convention cities in the order
named. The forthcoming convention,
the thirteenth, will have. Sorosis again
as its hostess, in conjunction with the
New York state and city federation
which are working tb$ir hardest to
make the gathering a notable one in
every direction.
The main drill hall of the armory of
the Seventh regiment of the New York
National Guard, -which -will accommo

the principal meeting place. The colo

of women's clubs. She will not be a
candidate for re-election this year,
however, and the question of her suc
cessor will be one of the most impor
tant items of business during the con
vention. The two candidates for the
office are Mrs. Samuel B. Sn£ath, of
Tiffin.' dtHo, and Mrs. Josiah Evans
Cowles. of Los Angeles. The Ohio can
didates at present first vice president
of the federation, and is a elub woman
ofwide experience. Mrs. Cowles, whose
name has been put forwatd by the Cal
ifornia women, has also been promi
nently identified with the .federation
several years as director, treasurer and
chairman of various committees.
In the words of Miss Lutie E. Stearns,
one of the directors of the federation,
"the business of being a club woman is
a big business and is getting to be a
bigger business every day." This is
apparent from the elaborate program
that has been arranged for the conven
tion. The' topics Indicate an increas
ingly wide range of affairs in which the
club womeii are taking not on\y an ip
te$est but'an active part. There was a
time, for Instance, when the New York
City Federation Of Women's Clubs
could report on all of its activities at
each convention, but now, says Mrs.
Eugene J. Grant, the president of the
city federation, it takes the six conven
tions of an administration^*) get thru
the reports of the thirty-eight commit
tees which have developed.
Wide Range of Activities.
The general federation has as its
broad object the furtherance of every
movement In the interestAof women,
children, and mankind in general, and
the program calls for reports and dis
cussion by committees on art. cbiid
welfare, civics, civil service reforms,
home economics, conservation, Indus
trial and social questions, legislation,
education, literature, music, public
health—and under these headings come
subjects' ranging all the way from mov
ing pictures to international relation
ships. One important announcement
that will be made jit the convention is
the fact that the federation ha* raised
an endowment of 9100,000. The plan to
raise such a sum was voted at the Cln-'
cl'nnatl convention in 1910, and now
•w the, sum has h«n realised It will
