PUPILS sue CLOSI "The Towner bill will pass the House it passed the Senate yesterday- if the anti-suffragists leave it alone," said Mrs. James T. Rourke, of 131 Vine street, today, recently re turned from Washington, where she iias been impressing Congressmen with the merits of the bill. "It is certainly a worthy measure for it means the protection of the lives of 200.000 babies a year, and certainly that is worth whiie!" The Towner bill, the name hav ing been recently changed from the Shepherd-Towner bill, because of the retirement of Mr. Shepherd from the Senate, is urging pre-natal care of prospective mothers and care of both mothers and babies after birth. "The Republican piarty is going to make a great mistaku if it does not allow this measure to pass," as serted Mrs. Rourke, who has been working since last year to bring the merits of the bill before all interest ed. She was appointed by Miss Katherine Buddington, rwgional di rector for New England of the Na tional Eeague of Women Voters, and she has worked tooth and nail to fos ter the bill. "The appropriation needed for the work is only $480,000," continued Mrs. Rourke, "and th;it jeems little enough to spend to insui the lives of the little ones of the uountry and their mothers. For. oftentimes, in the rural districts, prospective moth ers are far from medical attention and die, leaving, many times, large families without a mother. It is conditions like this that the bill will safeguard against. ENJOY USE OF NEW HYMNAL The congregation of Saint John's is now enjoying the use ot the New Hymnal, which was recently in stalled.
