At the Illiteracy Conference of the

pices of the Illiteracy Commission ot
the National Education Association at
the Fairmont Hotel In San Francisco

Wilson Stewart Chairman preeidod
About three hundred delegates were
in attendance representing the eleven
Western States These delegates
were representative leaders and ad
ministrators In education and in civ
ic political and welfare organiza
tions An Interesting feature of the
meeting was the interest manifested
in the organizations for a complete
elimination of Illiteracy not only ln
the States represented at this confer
ence but In every section of the
United States Apparently without
any desire to assign special tasks to
the educators and separate tasks to
the wonmans clubs fraternal nnd oth
er organizations it seemed that each
organization had this work bo well In
hand that each was vying with the
other to do more for tho elimination
ot illiteracy in its district than any
other organization could do Mrs
Cora Wilson Stewart chairman ot tho
convention is the originator of the
idea for a complete elimination ot il
literacy In this country having In
stituted her great work in the moun
tains of Kentucky in 1911 and later
having carried this campaign into ev
ery school district in the Blue Grass
stato in the form ot Moonlight
schools Her work had taken such
hold that during the draft in the re
cent world war our country was as-
founded at the percentage of illiter
acy In our army that was organized
and Bent overseas Through the ef
forts ot Mrs Stewart after this dis
covery was made in tho army the
National Education -Association vtui
interested in her work and today an
organization is being effected through
out the United States for a fight on
Illiteracy The confereuco in San
Francisco was tlnj first great meet
ing to be held and Mrs Stewart is
to carry her work In this line Into
every section of the country 1n a
similar manner to the conference of
