OCTOBER 14, 1926 NUMBER 17 We do not make friends as we make houses, but discover them as we do the arbutus. under the leaves of our life. concealed in our experiences. Women who bear the burdens of missionary work in the churches believe that they are carrying a heavy load. but Mrs. Bertha Knight Landes, Seattle’s first woman mayor, told the women attending the Congregational conference in Spokane last Thursday that they were not doing enough—that they are not doing their duty unless they bring the city into the church and add civic work to their church work. “The work of the church must have a bearing on the civic life of the commu nity if it is to count for anything.” she said. Mrs. Landes stated that she was a Congregationalist before she was a mayor and that she has done all phases of church work ““which wom en in small congregations are called upon to do.” Talking to business women at luncheon at the Davenport, she said: “Doing my bit in church and club work is the best possible training I could have had for my present work. The business of home-making, [ believe, is the most serious business on earth. If lam worth anything today to the world outside, it is because I have had these experiences.” With the problem of conservation the keynote of the Northeastern District Federation meeting at Harrington, women of the district are interesting themselves in the reforestation problem. on which they are asked to vote November 2. Regarding this. the Elma Chronicle pub lishes the following editorial: "“Ninety per cent of the American men and women today make very few plans for the future, preparing only for their immediate family needs. A great many carry insurance for the benefit of their children; I know of very few who carry insurance for their grandchildren. . . . “If George Washington. whose name this great state carries, hadn't planned hundreds of years ahead in his master struggle for mankind where would we be today? Or had Abraham Lincoln planned only for one generation we would still be living in the land of selfish slav ery. Someone must take a stand at this time not only to protect our present forests, but also to encourage reforestation. Let's pattern after George Washington and Abraham Lincoln: lay a foundation for our children’s children. Fix things so that in 2026 or 2126—tw0 hun dred years hence our offspring can look back with great pride and say: “Look what our ancestors did way back in 1926. They made it possible for us to enjoy this wonderful scenery. at the same time preserv ing lumbering—the greatest industry known to the Northwest." “Get out and vote ‘yes' November 2 and then mark it down in the family record or carve it on the family tree that on November 2, 1926, you voted for reforestation.” A plea to American students to be kind to the foreign students at their colleges comes through Miss Carolyn Marsh of Rockford, 111., who is in New York after a number of years in doing educational work with the Y. W. C. A. in Japan. Loneliness of students who have a hard time trying to adjust themselves to difficult situations in an un friendly atmosphere has in a number of cases led to suicide, she states. “Their desire for an education exceeds anything I have ever known,” she continues. “‘Parents of the lower classes share their children’s am bitions and all family efforts are bent to that end.” Spokane, Washington, sssssstemerssesssrmpersesnen ssnsnasssnsssmassssssssonese OB THE SPOKANE WOMAN, 329 Rookery Building, Spokane, Wash. Please send me THE SPOKANE WOMAN for one year. One dollar is enclosed. THE LOAD GETS HEAVIER VOTE “YES.” BE KIND TO THEM THE SPOKANE WOMAN Mrs. Heineman knows the joy of real service in her work and she would not exchange it for another, The poor dead hold no terrors for her and she has learned the business of caring for them “from the ground up” and has done everything that there is to be done about an under taking establishment save trim a cas ket—"and I know that I could do that if the occasion arose which would make it necessary,” she said. Mrs. Heineman came to Spokane from Missouri twenty years ago. She has a married daughter, Mrs. Blanche Sherer; two sons, Leslie, who is in high school at Lewis and Clark, and Arthur, who is with the John W. Graham Co., make up her household. The walls of her apartment hold some beautiful oil and water color paint ings, her art work. The last picture, however, she says she painted in 1913. Her present life is far too busy to per mit her to enjoy this hobby. Mrs. Heineman was one of the two Spokane delegates to the Soroptimist conven tion in California last month at which she extended an invitation for the or ganization to meet in Spokane next year. However, the concensus of opin fon was that the next convention should be held in the middle west so as to make it easier for eastern dele gates to attend, as well as some from London, England, and Mrs. Heineman was made a member of the committee of three to arrange for the place and time of meeting. Mrs. Frank Atkinson, 2311 Manito Boulevard, is serving as temporary president of the newly-formed local chapter of the Daughters of the Brit ish Empire, which has taken the name of Sir Arthur Currie. Officers of per manent standing will be elected after the first of the year, she states. SOROPTIMIST To be hostess in the house of death would not make an appeal to many women seeking to choose a life voca tion, but Catherine M. Heineman, who fills that position at Smith and Com pany and has the classification of Mortician in the Soroptimist group could not be imagined as filling any position so well as that of ministering to the grief stricken in a sympathetic, friendly, sincere manner. Her quiet dignity invites confidence and even in the social atmosphere you would know that she is the repository for half a dozen confidences of her men and women friends who need some one to fix things up, restore the harmony of a broken home or bring Dan Cupid into line when he seemed to be in clined to jump the traces.
