Hospitality of Lincoln Homes
Will be Tendered to Men of
the S. A. T. C.
Lincoln people will outdo all pre
vious records of hospitality when they
start in on the round of Bocial events
planned for the end of this week. Gay
dancing parties, where the boys may
bo lifted out of the ordinary daily
army atmosphere and wafted to a land
of fair ladies and sweet music, seem
to be in abundance. And second to no
other function of any sort are the
wonderful family dinners that delight
' the soul, as well as the palate. The
lads, too, who are unable to leave the
post during the. week to see the latest
moving picture In town, are remem
bered by those who planned the en
tertainment at the theare for Sun
day afternoon, for there are to be two
ieels of moving pictures along with
the rest of the program.

will attend this affair. A large num
ber from the S. A. T. C. at Nebraska
Wesleyan have been invited to attend
the dance too. Mrs. T. J. Doyle has
sent invitations to one 'hundred and
ten university girls, most of whom are

music has been engaged for the even

Several smaller dances have been
scheduled though the War Camp Com
munity Service for Saturday evening.

Sunday Dinners Planned
Sunday the committee will again
see that one hundred and sixty boys,
who have been living in anticipation
since they heard the stories of the
marvelous dinners of last week, have

that all reports are true. Most of
these invitations come from the mem

EXHIBIT OF MODERNIST
DISPLAYED AT ART HALL
Paintings of Riotous Color By
Berger Sandzen Attract
In the world of art. changes are
wrought with such rapidity that even
art lovers are compelled to stand
ighast and let individual techniques
come and go without attempting dil
igent study In their regard. Critics
alone, have kept abreast the breath
less pace of modern artists.
On the walls of Art hall there hangs
a group of bold paintings and exquisite
nature sketches.' The artist is a com
paratively obscure genius, whose
work, though of the modernist type,
seems destined to live, both as an ex
ample of present day scholarship and
as a bit of work worihy of earnest

Miss Stearns, Noted Speaker,
Discusses "Woman's Place in
the New Democracy"
Emphasises the Large Sphere Wo
men Are Occupying in the
"The great Indictment that mlgrlt
be brought against the educated wo
man Is the lack of a feeling of Indebt
edness toward the state that educates
her. the failure to mke any contribu
tion to the state to repay that debt,"
Miss Lutia Stearns, noted woman
speaker of America, declared at con
vocation yesterday morning in the
Temple when she discussed "Woman's
Place in the New Democracy."
"The old Bingle-line definition of
woman given in the first English die
tionary 'Woman a noun, female of
man; see homo,' comes very far from
the 14,000-word definition in one of
the latest distionaries. And that 14,000
word definition is quite inadequate."
Miss Stearns said.
Not only is woman occupying nior
room in the dictionary, but she is
also occupying a larger sphere in the
world's work. It would take a cyclo
pedia to tell what women have done
in the recent war. They have taken
the place of men In the trenches
They have taken over 29S of the 303
occupations men are in.
Only Country Without Franchise
Miss Stearns emphasized the fact
that soon America will be the only
country in which women do not have
the franchise. The Russian, the Eng
lish, the Canadian women have the
vote, the French will soon have it.
King Albert has promised the vote tq
the women of Belgium in recognition
of their services during the war.
What university women can do.
even though they do not have the vote,
is to help bring about legislation to
meet and solve the problems now fac
ing the country.
Reviews Labor Conditions
Miss Stearns reviewed the . labor
conditions, which, Just before the
t war. were tne mosi cnucm m m-
history of ihe country. Two thousand
strikes occurred during the war. The
child labor bureau declared that chil
dren had been working eleven and
twelve hours a day. Women should
petition congress to make new legis
lation so children can be put back in
"The race problem is an after-the-war
problem," said Miss Stearn3
"Three hundred thousand colored men
and in the U. S. army. What are we,
going to say to them when they come
back? They helped make the world
safe for democracy. Are we going to
make democracy safe for them?
