ONCE upon a time, when I Was a
little school girl, 1 flunked an ex
amination in a subject which I
liked, and which J understood fairly
Well. And this was the reason for my
failure. The time was rather short and
I Was nervous, and so, instead of con
centrating on each problem, finishing
that and going on to the next, I fluttered
frantically from one to the other, and
at the end of the time had only solved
one broblem out of five. ,
I am relating that sad passage in ml .
personal history because I so often think °f it when I see myself and other
workers dissipating energy by fluttering from one task to another.
w For instance, the other day / started to dust the living rooms. As I was
dtrshng the table I noticed that the lamp chimney needed "washing, and 1 laid
aside my duster, took the chimney out into the kitchen and washed it. While
there, 1 stopped to make out the order list, and it was some time before I took
up my dusting again.
I really meant to finish in a rush this time, but 1 only got as far as my
desk- There my eye lit upon a library book which was due that day, and I
hastened to the telephone to renew it. While at the phone I took the oppor
tunity to call up the dressmaker. On the way back to the living room I saw a
i>pot on the hall carpet that ought to be cleaned at once, and — well, the
upshot of the whole matter was that when a neighbor "dropped in" at 1 1
o'clock, I had not finished dusting the living room, though I started at half
past nine.
Perhaps I'm more easily distracted than the average woman, but from
what I have seen of other women, I should say that a great many of them fre
quently make the mistake of dissipating their energy this way.
For I think it is a mistake to flutter from one duty to another, and it
does dissipate one's energy.
Of course, each thing I interrupted myself to do was something that had
to be done sooner or later, and, of course, each duty would take about the
tame length of time whenever it was done. And yet, though it may seem para
doxical, I still feel sure that one gets things done more quickly by sticking to
.one task until it is finished and then taking up another.
The shifting of one's attention, and the moving from one place to an
other—as in the case of my going out into the kitchen to wash the lamp chim
ney—eat up a little time, and since most of us find our day so terribly inadequate
to do half our living in, even the littles of time must be looked after.

Only Obatacle I« Unking Franchise
With Other Reforms
COPENHAGEN, March 7.—The eleo
toral reform bill, which will give both
franchise and eligibility to women, Iβ
now under consideration by the lands
thing or upper house of parliament.
This bill was recently passed by the
folkething (lower house) by a major
ity of S3. It has been framed to make
some very radical changes in the Dan
ish constitution.
Two points are involved: One is the
widening of the franchise for the lower
house, including the lowering of the
voting age from 30 to 25 and the recog
nition of the right of women to vote.
while the other is the partial demo
cratization of the upper house by the
substitution of the local government
councils for the present electoral bod
ies, which are composed partly of the
large tax-payers and representatives of
large tax payers and partly of repre
sentatives of all enfranchised citizens.
Great opposition is being made to
this latter proposal in the upper house,
where the conservatives are in a ma
jority of one. A feature In Denmark
Is the practical unanimity of all par-,
ties as to the advisability of conferlng
political rights on women, who might
have counted without hesitation on
success had their claim not been linked
with that for other reforms.

"Gag Rule, ,, Says Miss Jol
liffe, Whose Voice Was
Drowned Out
If there raa no broken ch!na op
glassware at the S*. Tranois after the
luncheon yesterdar of the San Fran
cisco -center, It was oot because the
women did not use the luncheon serv
ice manfully fn their political debate.
Dissension breaking out while the
women were trying to tell the San
Francisco delegation of the legislature
what laws they want, created some
Glasses, plates, cups, knives and
forks clattered in the din of mingled
hisses and cheers served expedltlously
In silencing a speaker.
Assemblyman W. S. Rcott declared
he felt quite at home and that It was
just like a field day.
The dissension was over the mothers'
pension bill. The legislative commit
tee decided to bottle it without In
dorsement, and Miss Katherine Felton,
its chairman, sought to shelve it by
calling it neither economical nor prac
tical. But some members didn't be
lieve so, and being women they rose
to voice their beliefs. Miss FVanees
Jolliffe, their leader, began telling her
opinions. Chairman Mrs. Marcel Cerf
ruled, her out of order. Miss Jolliffe
kept talking.
Then the clatter began. The cafe
captain and waiters shivered nerv
ously. It was like a hundred clumsy
kitchen maids trying to wash dishes,
and Misg Jolliffe's voice was drowned.
Gradually peace returned. The pro
gram coptinued. Mrs. W. W. Douglas
told the legislators the center indorsed
the training school for girls bill and
the redlight abatement and injunction
bill. Senator Tom Finn talked on
prison reform and Assemblyman Scott
on legislative matters in which women
should be interested.
Thus was the program concluded.
Then Miss Jolliffe rushed to the speak
ers' table, dragging with her Mrs.
-Mary Doyle, a widow having six child
ren. She told the women Mrs. Doyle
would tell experiences which bespoke
the need of the pension law. But the
legislators found their time wu up.
and left the hall. The majority of the
women left the hall, while the minor
ity favoring the pension bill argued it
out until they found no opponents.
"Gag rule!' , commented Mis» Jolliffe
an leaving the room.
