WOMEN'S CLUBS OPEN
ANNUAL CONVENTION
Representatives of Alameda
District Rally in
Oakland
WELCOME DELEGATES
Mrs. Edwin D. Buss, State
President, Speaks on
Scope of Work
OAKLAND, Oct. 31.— The seventh
annual convention of the women's
clubs of the Alameda district was
called To order in the Ebell clubhouse
in Oakland this afternoon by the presi
dent, Mrs. 11. L.- Eastman, and opened
with prayer by Mrs. A- L. Barry.
There were 35 delegates present. The
overflow of enthusiasm from the Han
Francisco district convention, which
had been In session in Napa. brought
a number of visitors from that dis
trict, M-ho, with the clubwomen in this
<ity, brought the number of women
assembled up to more than a hundred.
Mr?. Charles Woodbury'in belialf of
Oakland clubs made a . graceful
speech of welcome, which was re
sponded to by Mrs. A. L. Barry.
Mrs. Edwin D. Buss, the state presi
dent, i=pok<» of the broadened scope of
women's work from the o!d . Ideals,
\u25a0which included only home duties. Ii
An aftermath of the sensation which
was created at the San Francisco dis
trict meeting in Napa through the re
port of the conference en the discus
sion of sex problems with children
cropped up nrhen Mr>. Elmore C. Huff,
past president of the San Francisco
district, expressed lier regret that the
matter had been published. She said:
"The words of the two speakers
w*rt pure, inspiring and educational.
They provided us with new thoughts
for the ordering of our home llfe. !
There was great interest taken in the
discussion and many outsiders came
in to hear it. The convention hall was
so qjilet that you could have heard a
pin flrop."
Tlie- -president. Mrs. H.- L. Eastman,
in her address emphasized the need of
federation. There was great strength.
in tttc. union of nearly 1.000.000 women
who^were combined In the . national
federation of clubs. Without the.asr
sistan.ee of thinking, earnest women
society must go to pieces. Among- the
lines,pf work which she wished espe
cially to recommend was that of a
humane department. If 1.008.000 women
stood together to prevent the ill treat
ment .of horses and the robbing of
birds", nests, as well as the inhuman
treatment of children, such things
wouls stop.
Addresses were, also made by Mrs.
Clarlfe, the recently elected president
of the San Francisco district: .Mrs. J.
E. Xhain. the past president of. the
Alameda district, and Mrs. B. C Wal
ton, 'who represented a number of
women's improvement clubs in .. the
Sacramento valley which she was en
deavoring to bring into the federation.
The latter part of the session was
mainly devoted to consideration and
adoption of the' amended bylaws of
the federation, one of the most Im
portant changes being that giving the
district officers the power of voting- in
the convention. The representation of
the larger clubs in the federation was
increased by the .provision entitling
every club to send one delegate to tbe
convention for every 50 members and
fraction of that- number, instead of for
evcry-.-100 members, as before. The
committee on the revision of the by
laws-consisted of Mrs. J. B. Hume. Mrs.
A. L; Barry and Mrs. Emma Rathge'b.
A discussion on federation work was
led by Mrs. Emma Rathgeb. the presi
dent-of the Wednesday afternoon club,
which- left the federation because 1t was
flooded, with requests from district
<hairmen of departments that it take
up uncongenial work. The general
opinion in the convention was. however.
thatj,4h.e activity of the district chair
menrjijad a grood influence In broadening
the ,-vsork of individual clubs, and no
changft^was recommended.
A .reception was given'in the evening
by th^^ Oakland clubs to the visiting
nfflcejjf«nd delegates. with. their escorts.
The- j>arlors. of the new Ebell clubhouse
were artistically decorated, the homely
pumpkin- which figured In honor of
halloween blending quite artlstically
withr/palms and ferns. An orchestra
filled 4jp lulls in the conversation, and
aftefiVthe strain of business and
speeches in the club sessions, the In
formality of the occasion was^ thor
oughly enjoyed. Mrs. J. B. Hume, the
president of the Ebell club, and Mrs.
Cora* E. Jones, the president of the Oak
land dub, were assisted- in receiving by
the directors of the two clubs. \u25a0 .
The: sessions continue tomorrow
morning at 10 o'clock.

CONTRA COSTA
SAYS THE COEDS HAVE
FORMED A SMOKING CLUB
Editor of University Maga
zine Threatens to Give
Names of Members v
ENTER FIRM DENIAL
Young Women Declare They
Have No Knowledge of
Organization
BERKELEY. Oct. 3i:— Some coeds at
the university are said by Editor David
L. Levy of the; California Occident
magazine, the student monthly, to have
formed a smoking 'club In whose mem
bership are numbered some of the
most prominent women' students-. of the
university. In the current number of
the Occident, which will appear on
the campus tomorrow, Levy asserts that
he will publish tho names of. the
women' in the club unless the 'or
ganization Is disbanded. The Occident
article is calculated to create a stir
lii "university circles.--
Although no names are mentioned In
the matter published' in the student
monthly, women well known in 'col
leg-e life are said by. Levy to be mem
bers of the clufc. '\u25a0'• The student editor
asserted today that the existence/of
the smoking club had been called to
his attention and- names of the mem
bers of the club given -to him. He
refused to make public the names of
the fair indulgers of the weed.
. A- number of women students said
to be members -of . the club were asked
today whether they were members of
the smoking club. They denied all con
nection with the organization and as
serted that they knew ' nothing of. Its
existence.
It Is likely that the accusations of
the student editor will be Investigated
by Miss Lucy Sprague, dean of women,
with a view to breaking up the club
If It is found that some coeds I have
taken up the' smoking habit and have
banded, themselves together to enjoy,
cigarettes in secret. Levy writes:"
Dame Rumor has whispered Into our confi
dential ear that certain young ladies' attending
the university have taken up the pernicious
habit of smoking. Putting into play that re
markable detective Instinct for which .we are
'famed, we probed Into the meshes of this mys
tery and. discovered that such Is the woeful con
dition of affairs. - - « .\u25a0
The despicable purveyors to this feminine
coterie of smokers, fearing that we would're
veal their secret and thereby- deprive them of
this profitable traffic in tobacco, called upon us
to attempt to hush up the matter. '. • •-. \u2666 But
we indignantly refused to be bribed, but prom
ised to conceal their Identities. -\u25a0\u25a0:\u25a0
We hereby give fair warning to those women
who indulge that If the practice Is not discon
tinued at once we are In duty bound to publish
all details of the matter, • Including names.
Therefore desist! •
Imitations pay the dealer a larger
profit, otherwise you would never be
offered a substitute when you ask for

TO REMOVE CAUSE OF
PREVENTABLE FIRES
Oakland Underlets Plan
to Establishißureau
. of Inspection
WILL REDUCE 7 RISKS
City Council to Be Asked to
. Sanction the New
Establishment
OAKLAND, Oct. 31. — Oakland is to
be put under the strict Inspection rules
of the Pacific board of. fire underwriters
for the purpose of removing causes of
preventable fires, to reduce the price of
risks inevery" possible way and to su
pervise all elements of fire risk which
can be controlled.
Steps have been taken by the board
to go before the city council and ob
tain the authority to establish the in
spection bureau. While the under
writers do not promise to reduce the
Insurance rates,, they do say that the
elimination of causes of preventable
fires and the protection thus given
would mean in the nature of things,
argument In favor of what the dlplo«
matic underwriter denominates as an
"adjustment of rates."
Inspection under the direction of the
underwriters, with a bureau maintained
at. the board's expense, would mean, say
the. lnsurance men, that the city would
be cleaned of rubbish and kept clear;
that hundreds of basements filled with
Inflammable goods, dangerously stored,
would be examined and the risks from
fires removed as far as .possible; that
the householders would be taught what
was dangerous and how to avoid -these
risks in j^reat measure.
In San Francisco this inspection bu
reau, under the charge of F.'JI. Porter,
the superintendent, has accomplished
splendid results in its removal of much
that is dangerous to property.
And this city, the- insurance men
point, out, would gain materially from
the efforts of the 'underwriters' In
spectors to compel people to keep
their dwellings free from rubbish into
which a lighted; match hastily thrown
might cause a great conflagration.
The scheme la -ah entirely new one
in Oakland. It has never been ex
perimented with on this side of the
bay. To enforce the orders .of the
underwriters' board it will, be neces
sary to clothe the Inspectors with pp-_
lice authority. It Is a question whether
the city council will care to. go that
far with men over whom they hbld'.not
the . slightest, supervision.
