Tha typical clubwoman who never

ten paper wa given a decided aethack
by Mn. Thomaa U. Winter, chairman of
the literature department of the Ooneral
Federation of Woman'a Cluba and presi
dent of the Minneapolis Woman's club.
"I am not In favor ot the written pa
per. Juat think. In America womn are
the only leisure class, yet the average
woman, when she has to present t. sub
ject, consults the handiest encyclopedia,
jots down the eon lent and reads a paer
in public," was Mrs. Winter's arraignment.
'The study club Is not dead, as many
will tell you. It la only dead study that
la dead. Literature Is as necessary aw
feed. Avoid the dusty. dlny byways
and when you read the ancients, read the
characters not aa figures of the long ago,
but get the. message of living, breathing
Mrs. Winter intimated that the woman
who reads classical worka without un
derstanding their message was as use
less to society aa the bridge player.
"Tha literature of today Is alive, not
pcdantlam." Mrs. Winter prophesied,
too, that the literature of today whs hut
the forerunner of another golden age in
ea for Poetry.
"True, there la light literature, but that
s'.metlmes has more of a solution than
the ponderous sort. Never lias there been
an age that needed poetry more than
Mr. Winter pointed out how all the
great problems ot the day could be better
understood with literaturo as a means.
"The Immigration proulem Is one of the
greatest questions ot the day. While we
are complacently calling ourselves Anglo.
Saxon, immigration statistics prove that
eHava are coming to these shores in
greater proportion, than any other people.
What are we doing to Americanise them?
How can we do anything for them, how
can we possibly understand them unless
we know their literature and art?"
Mrs. Winter advised reading aloud and
open discussloa aa the best mean for
real study of literature and admonished
all mothers to require their children to
memorise counties lines ot poetry, even
if it was beyond their little minds. "In
later years they will reap the benefit of
the lines of which they had no concep
tion." she said.
Miss Ethel Dixon of the Brownell Hall
faculty spoke on "Modern Drama." deal
ing with the time schools, ayniboltam,)
realism and' romanticism. The program
was In charge ot Mrs. C. If. Mullin, leader
of the literature department.
At th. business meeting Mrs. Winter
also told the clubwomen of the success
eg a business venture of the Minneapolis
Woman's club building. The Omaha
' Woman'a club has long contemplated such
"The women must raise the money for
such an undertaking. Tou must learn to
put your money where your hearte are.
You women would not hesitate at the ex
pense of a hat or a lace collar." aha said.
Mrs. &....Q. Peterson... president of- the
Nebraska Federation of -Women's Clubs,
made an appeal for the Belgian icllef
fund and also for a loan fund to further
the .work of the scholarship fund.

and parents to allow children to attend
the Bancroft and Park schools under
conditions as described, "If bonds are not

would be willing to go out and raise

rooms which should accommodate about
forty pupils each, he noticed from forty
to seventy pupils. "The tremendous need
of our schools today is more room for

Lothrop is badly, overcrowded. At
