In speaking of the proposed camp.

"Perhaps it may not be quite clear to :-.e people of Pensacola that the work f the latriotic League has been carried n here without any cost whatever to the own. The work is national in its scope, nd was launched by the Toung Women's hristian Association, to meet the need f girls during the war, when they needed ie helpful encouragement- of older wom ;i, in every possible way. "The Rirls, through the Patirotic .eastue, have 'been encouraged In their fvflonment nlnne minr lines, and the Ixpe-nse of all work and recreation has (?en borne by the national association. hich pays the salary or myseir, as ex--iitiv EPrrptarv.

But the expenses will be held at the min imum, as In other camps conducted by the national Y. W. C. A. The limit or the number which can bo cared for at the Sea-Breeze camp is from twenty to twenty-five, and reservaton must be ror from one to two weeks. . ... "Already the demand for reservations is being made, and in order that all may be taken care of. we ask that girls ap ply to the Patirotic League rooms as early as possible, and register. The cost will be nominal, and the advantages will be unusual for a summer camp. Sea-Breeze is fitted out with every con venience. "There are two furnished cottages, with running hot and cold water, two large porches, where the girls may sleep out-of-doors on cots if they so desire, there is fine surf -bathing, and opportunities fr every sort of out-door diversion.- As Se Breeze is only ten miles from town, and easily accessible, we feel that the f ir3t summer camp for girls, near Pensacola will be a wonderful success. But It can not be. without the co-operation of the girls. We want to make that very clear. Mr. Keyser has given us Sea-Breeze for the month of June, and it will rest with the girls themselves, as to whether we shall be able to keep the camp open for the month of July. We are going to make the rates just as reasonable as pos sible. Already there is so much interest In the camp that a number of prominent men and women, who are, expecting to leave Pensacola for their vacations, have sent us checks to make this work possi be. The national T. W. C. A. is payins the salaries of Miss Hamilton and myself, and are allowing us to use a small sum we have on hand, for some of the ex penses of the camp. This fund of course Is not enough to meet all expense of t'.ie camp, and even if It were, we understand that the girls of Pensacola are indepen dent enough to want to pay their own expenses. This Is always most satisfac tory. So we shal make the rate as low as consistently possible, and then try to give the girls the best of times such a vacation as seems possible only, here in Ftnsacola, where there are, so many ad vantages for recreation. , "We shal have at the camp as our guest, at all times, a trained nurse, and we shall wish every mother to feel that her daughter will be perfectly safe with u. In every way, and that we shall be constantly alert to her every vacation nee'l, not only of wholesome pleasure but in every other way." ;'-.; heaviest pieces. Be sure to wipe off the superfluous oil, as it wll -not only catch dust, but it may also stain the carpet. Tea and coffee stains may be taken from white goods by soaking in glycerine and letting stand several hours untouched afterward washing in soap and water. There are Innumerable uses for lirne water, and so no home-u should ever be without it- It is used to keep milk vessels wholesome, to make the milk digestible, t soften water, to sweeten drains, etc. By beating lime water wel into olive or linseed oil there results one of the best Known remedies for burns and scalds. To make lin water, put a 'lump f quicklime as big as the two fists into a clean - earthen pitcher, pouring over enough clea'n drinking water to cover it six inches deep. Stir well with a wooden spoon, let stand half a day, and then pour off the clear liquid without disturbing the lime at the bottom of the pitcher. Scarf Swearter's. So . S5mnipleSo Chic!

's THE thing. ' In keeping with its standard of high efficiency, tne Pensacola Business Wom an's Club made a further Btep forward, when at the weekly meeting of .the club the movement for a National Federation -l Business and Professional Women was endorsed. -. ' After a delicious supper, the culinary perfection of which was due to Mrs. John Hall, the report of Dr. Mary Noyes was received. Dr. Noyes represented the Pen sacola Business Woman's Club ' at the convention In Mobile, when Mrs. Nina B. Price, of Atlanta, delivered an address on the federation of business and profes sional women. . ' ' Dr. Noyes told in - a general way of the many advantages resulting from such a federation and of the Increase in effi ciency and strength to be obtained from such an association. At the close of her report, after some discussion. - the club unanimously declared Itself in favor of the federation and prepared to fill out the questlonairesto be "sent to Atlanta. Dr. Noyes 'talked- veryJ interestingly rf the plans of the federation, as presentea at the convention In Mobile. . "Mrs. Price. r herself," said Dr. Noes. "Is a most interesting woman. Bom India, educated In England, and the wife of an American-soldier, who fought for the flag, she has high ideals and has bad a -wide experience, and seems imbued wit hthe desire to serve and, most of a.11, to srve efficiently. "The object of the federation, as out lined by Mrs. Price, is a national asso ciation, inspired and conducted by busi ness women who are proving by their own careers the possession of executive abil ity and force, . of a. standard that quali fies them to be ; leaders ' of women. "The federation would make its first obligation the securing for women equal opportunities of work and equal wage for equal work, and would have for its pur pose the promotion and support of every movement looking to the advancement of the interest's, individual and general, ot business and professional women. "It is believed that such an associa tion would encourage among business and professional women the deepenig sense of responsibility to their work, to their em ployers, and to their own business repu tation, with a , consequent Increase in efficiency. "" : : . "It is also believed that, the federation of1 business and professional "women.-will stimulate the desire off wemen to train themselves for better woTk or .more suit able work than she could of her unaided effort attain 'to.- "An object to the federation will be to supply vocational guidance and assist ance; suggest methods of broadening of opportunity and advancement in the bus iness in which women may be engaged, and to - secure and - supply information concernig new openings for women all over the world. : "Through the association, from year o year, federated force will be behind the solution of whatever problems are in that year the urgent problems." The federation of the business and pro fessional women's clubs of America is being pushed from five different centers, their combined territory , covering the whole country. -; Only clubs having 75. per cent or more business membership are eligible to the federation, although the individual bu3l- J nessc woman not affiliated with any or- J ganlzatlon may come in or the individual i woman not in business, but in sympathy with the movement. - ' The committee in charge of the federa tion plan is composed of twenty-five out standing business women of every creed and business interest, chosen from all over the United States. - A meeting of professional and business women of the state will be held in Jack sonville, June 13-14 and the national fed eration will meet in St. Louis some time In July. - - ' Dr. Noyes said that one of the most Interesting talks made at the conference in Mobile, was that of Dr. Ellen B. Ligon, of Alabama, who said that the women of Alabama did not take pride in the fact that their state stood third in illiter acy for the United States, but that, wh!l she felt a sense of shame for this illiter acy she would feel' a deeper shame did the women of Alabama fall-to support the Federation of" Business and Profes sional Women, for she belleve-d that this movement was the most Important to women which had ever been launched In this country. Dr. Noyes, in her brief talk, stressed the Importance of this work. In Its rela tion to the problems of young girls. Dr. Ligon . ad Dr. Noyes both, rank high in their profession, and. are agreed in their belief that one of. the most important phases of the work which the federation of business and professional women would accomplish, would be In its protection of the young girl in her Interests. Dr. Noyes said: "We women who meet professionaly ;the young girl who ha made one false step, know that that girl Is not necessarily a bad girl. One of the wonderful things that the federation -f professional and business women would do. would be to .give their aid to the young girls of this country, who need that aid. Through the strength, grace and wisdom engendered by a federation of women whose standards are high and whose alms are for . betterment, a help ing hand would be held out to those who so sorely need the help of older women," Dr. Noyes, in discussion of the mo tives of the federation of women's clubs, and. the work it is designed to do, said: "I believe that the time has come for the . women of this country to reallza their , responsibilities in many ways, not only through suffrage, but by federating the - business and professional women of this country, in order that they may find themselves equipped to meet the issues that are arising, and the problems that must be met. A very interesting talk was also made before the business women's club by Mrs. J. F. Huddleston, wife of Lieutenant Kuddleston. U. S. N., of the Pensacola naval air station, who has only recently returned from overseas service, where she served as a member of the Tubercu losis commission, which Investigated th realth conditions of the people of war rtrlclcen Italy and rendered such remedial and preventive assistance as was possi ble, in connection with the public health education. She was Introduced by the president of the club. Miss Frances Wanl berg, and held the close attention of her hearers as she told in a most interesting manner of her experlencs while abroad.
