Toastmaster Capwell made a few in
troductory remarks, telling of the ob
jects of the gathering and the great
need in Oakland for a modern building
to house the many activities of the as
sociation. He introduced Miss Grace
M. Fisher as the first speaker. She
referred to the Young Woman's Chris
tian association as Cinderella and to
the new civic consciousness as the
fairy godmother. What was needed
now was to arouse this civic pride and
she believed that It could be done.
Miss Fisher told of the active work
which had been done by the association
In Oakland and how it had grown
from four departments to 10 distinct
departments. For these more space
and more workers were needed.
WORK'S SCOPE OUTLINED
Through the employment bureau.
t_e speaker explained, from 60 to 70
■women a month were taught to be self
supporting and self-respecting. She
referred in turn to the cafeteria; the
school, which has more than 300 pu
pils, which are now ln cramped quar
ters and badly in need of room, and
the rooming department, where 273
girls were cared for ln the last year.
There is a religious department and a
social department, where every Friday
night entertainments of some sort are
"Besides these six businesses."' said
the speaker, "there are four others
which Cinderella administers from this
same building—the travelers' aid work,
than which nothing Is more needed or
Important, and the boarding home, al
ways filled and with a waiting list; the
physical work both in gymnasium and
out of doors, with which we hope to
co-operate with the playground com
mission In the Mosswood playground,
and the Camp Meeker bungalow."
Miss Carolyn Patch discussed the
need of a new building fo r the asso- j
elation from the following viewpoints:!
As a civic factor, an educational force, j
a social center and a protective move
ment. She answered these questions
with experiences she has met with in
her work as Pacific '-oast territorial
secretary of the organization. She
showed what was being done in other
cities and how the money invested by
the cities had come back a hundredfold. I
NEED MODERN BULDING
"No modern association can work say©
in an up to date building," she said.
"The y. w. C. A. civic institution is as
bndly needed as the city hall, city
library and tho public schools, and
should he housed in a fine building for
the same reason that we expend money
on our municipal structures. If Oak
land steps in and works for this neces
sary appropriation, the result will be
that in a year's time the association
will have a membership of s.ooo..Fresno
DOW has 1,660. It will change the
ideals of the young women and the
Kirls. It will protect 100 times more
j_irls at station, at boat landing and in
the street than it is doing now, by em
ployment bureau, by social center, by
home and by educational facilities. And
what girl is worth protecting more in
all the world than Our California girls?
"The association also will have rec
reative advantages, and through its
gymnasiums make health popular and
possible. Recently, in a question put
to a number of Industrial girls, the
answer was that they wished health
above all things. The association will
also .be a spiritual powerhouse, co-op
cratlng efficiently with the churches."
.David Starr Jordan discussed the sub
ject from the viewpoint of the educator.
< ONFIDEXCE IX CAMPAIGN
Doctor Jordan said that he had not
realized until he came to Oakland to
day that a new building for the Young
Women's Christian association was so
seriously needed. He expressed confi
dence that the project to raise fuqds
would be successfully carried through.
Toaslmaster at Y. W. C. A. building campaign banquet and two of the
women prominently identified with the association s work-
both improved the tenor of the whole

type of money raising campaign had
Bn originated by the Young Men's

The same man entered the branch
postoffice and in exchange for a money
order for $40 gave Scozzafava $36.40 ln

for the attention, gave him an en

order, pocketed his change and said
he would return with the required

envelope he found that he had been
presented with the same picture Mrs.
Thomas had been given.
