MEMBERSHIP COMMITTEE TAK
ES TRIP TO FATHER FLAN
Much credit for an enjoyable out
ing at Father Flanagan’s Home on
Decoration Day goes to Mesdames
Victoria Turner, H. L. Anderson and
Minnie Dixon. Promptly at two oclock
an ensemble of cars drove from the
YWCA, out to Father Flanagan’s
Home. They were met by a commit
tee of Visitor’s Guides made up of two
boys, residents of the home. The
group visited the entire plant, stop
ped to see a baseball game and track
meet by the boys of the home. It was
a pleasure to meet the Assistant
Stenographer to Father Flanagan
who is a fine young Colored boy from
Colorado who spoke in glowing terms
of the home. The party proceeded
from Father Flanagan's Home to
Muny Beach where they picniced.
This was the closing trip for the
year. The Membership Committee has
sponsored education trips through the
Telephone Building, Iten Biscuit Co.,

of the Club and Ella Mae Mills, Sec.
As a part of its contribution to the
North Side “Y” this year the Quack
Club is having the office in the build
ing partitioned. Having no partition
between the main reception room and
the office makes it very difficult to
work in the office when activities are
being carried on in the building. The
Quack Club is able to have this work
done with a part of the proceeds
from its Annual Style Revue.

MJAXJE MILLER:—I’m twenty-two
and Im in love. But I don’t want to
leave my mother. My boy friend is
older, is in good circumstances and
says he wants us to live by ourselves.
He laughs and says “I’m am afraid of
living with in-laws.” Mother says it
is all right with her if I go or stay.
Sometimes I think I’ll go; then I am
inclined to let this man go rather than
leave home. Wihat would you do?—
Bertha: If I loved a man, believed
he loved me. and he could take care
of me, I’d not be fool enough to cast
him aside. This man is right. When
young people marry they’d better go
to themselves. This will avoid friction
and will give them a chance to gain
knowledge through experience and to
develop initiative and self-reliance.
Marry and go.
CHILDREN AND CHILDREN’S
by R. A. ADAMS
(For the Literary Service Bureau)
Children’s Day involves interests
and problems of children. The pro
grams add exercises will have as their
object the cultural development of
children. This is wise because upon
children depends the perpetuity of the
human race. And, on the nature of
this development will depend the qual
ity and the utility of future civiliz
But, one of the unfortunate weak
nesses of our present dealings with
our children and their problems is that
of placing the greatest stress on in
tellectual development, and assigning
a place of lesser importance to the
ethical and spiritual phases of these
activities. This needs to be corrected,
because, at best, the intellectual is
erratic, given to dangerous errancies,
and unable to direct the course of hu
man life into safe channels.
Ethical enlightment is necessary to
bring knowledge of human relations,
obligations and responsibil'ties, and
to incite behaviour consonant with
these Much of the trouble in the world
today is the result of failure to reco
gnize these relationships and obliga
tions, and to make practical applica
Spiritual enlightment explains and
stresses relationship to God and the
devolving duties ensuing. Duties to
God and to our fellowman affect all
human behaviour. Individual and col
lective peace, amity, and social pros
perity are pendent upon them. These
phases of human lif and activities

to help the millions of men and women who have lost or are losing
their vital physical power. In his 36 years of practice and research,
however, he realized that the weakening of man’s glands was also
responsible for other troubles: High blood pressure, hardening of
the arteries, physical exhaustion after work or exercise, dizziness,
depression, neurasthenia, etc.
All these troubles can be removed with Titus-Pearls. Numerous
cases were treated by Dr. Hirschfeld in his Berlin Institute.
L. S. (State Official; 60 years old, married) complained of
physical exhaustion, dizziness and tremors. Was easily tired. Mental
power duH and slow moving. Physical powers had been incomplete
for previous 5 years. Blood pressure too high. Given 2 Titus-Pearls
3 times a day. 2 weeks later the medical report on this man was:—
general health better, more vigor; dizziness much less and returning
of power. Treatment continued and 2 weeks later L. S. reported
again, this time to say that all weariness and exhaustion had gone;
he felt fresh and buoyant. His blood pressure had fallen, and at 60
years of age he had regained the physical power and virility that
he had known in the prime of his life.
