"Tho Debt of College Women to tho
Suffrage' Movement'' -'was the subject
of ' a lecture by Mary Wood Park at
Convocation yesterday which wob
deserving of a large attendance. Those
who stayed 'away on 'account of tho
fctofmy "weather missed a lecture
which was an unusually clear presen
tation of the suffrage argument.
Mrs. Park is a pleasing speaker and
her personality was a matter of com
mentis well as WaB her lucid reason
ing. The speaker said in part: .
i "In my opinion there are two greut
reasons for women's suffrage. The
first of these Is the fact that women
RTe"ihtelligent luimnn beings compris
ing one-half of a people whose boast Is
that this government is a government
by the people for the people. Yet in
.Massachusetts the right to vote in
the nffaivs of .this .government Is with
hold from minors, paupers, idiots, for
eigners, criminals, anxlj women. For
franchising the former classes there
ure sufficient reasons: they are not
.wise enough or they are not
aefiiiainteJ wIUTthe needs of the gov
ernment. But for women there is
no such reasou.
i "SuffrageUs but.n pari of a larger
women's rights' movement This move
ment has progressed along educa
tional, industrial, social and other
lines. Let us note, for Instance, the
change brought about in educational
.methods as applied to women. As late
t2s 1820, girls were crowded out of the
eraramar schools in New England ex
cept when .boys who normally attendee)
them wero at work. The first high

The annual Sigma XI addressv is
given at tho time of the mid-winter,
commencement. This year It will bo
made by It. H. Crittenden of Yale, con
cerning whoso talk Prof. A. L. Candy,
president of the society has written:
"I wIbIi to call the attontlon of all
those persons who are Interested to
the annual lecture to be given under
the auspices of the Sigma XI society
in connection with the mid-winter
commencement of the University. The
lecture will be given this year on Wed
nesday, February 19, at eight o'clock
p. m., iu the University Temple. Prof.
R. H. Chittenden, who is the director
of the Sheffield scientific school at
Yale university, will deliver tho ad
dress. Professor Chittenden is one of
the most eminent physiological chem
ists in this country. The subject of his
address will be "Some New View
Points In Nutrition." Tho general pub
lic Is Invited to attend the meeting.
Concerning tills lecture Prof B. A.
Guenther of the department of physl-'
ology In the University Medical
School submits tho following state
ment: " 'Those interested in tho formation
of proper dietary habits must look for
ward to tho coming-Sigma XI lecture
by Professor Chittenden with consider
able Interest. A comparison of the
dietaries of civilized racos and the re
sults of experiments of physiologists,
like Volt, have led to tho belief In the
necessity of meat as an article f diet.
Or, more correctly expressed, In the
necessity of an. average daily allow
ance of about 118 grams of protein.
Thl) rdcent work of Chittenden hnd
apparently demonstrated that It Is,-possible
to live and thiriver on, a diet con
taining not more than 60 grams of
.protein and Chittenden's most Interest
ing subject is Mr. Fletcher..
