CANDIDATES FOE PRESIDENT
Nov York, May 20. The club
women of the country, 2.500.000 of
v, '.Him arc rt presented in the General
federation of Women' Clubs, have
n; rfected a plan for the greatet con
vention in the history of the federa
iMfi in New "York this month. The
I'atrs arc May 21 to June 8. During
t' o"c seventeen days it i expected
!ai fully 20.000 women representing
.'ulti in every Mate in the union, as
tvell sme from Alaska, Japan,
1 '.upland, Hawaii and Soutli America,
v. ill attend many of the innumerable
i; citings and social functions that
1 ,,ne been arranKd.
New York I ity this year is said to
have more than 500 different conven
tions on its calendar, but from all in
dications none will equal in atten
dance the gathering of women. The
main ltill hall of the Armory of the
.Seventh regiment of the New York
National Guard, which will accommo
date upward of 8,'KK) women, will be
the principal meeting place. 'J be
colonel's room and other officers'

women for headquarters. The

Two Candidates for President.'
The chief executive is Mrs. Percy
V, fennybacker, the president of the
federation, whose home is in Austin,
Tex., but who for the last two years
has been traveling throughout the
country keeping in personal contact
with the activities of women's clubs.
She will not be a candidate for re
election this year, however, and the
question of her successor will be one
of the most important items of busi
ness during the convention. The two
candidates for the offices are Mrs.
Samuel H. Sneath of Tiffin, () and
Mrs. Josiah Kvana Cowles of 1-os
Angeles. The Ohio candidate it at
present first vice president of the
Federation, and is a club woman of
wide experience. Mrs. Cowles, whose
name has been put forward by the
California women, has also been
prominently identified with the Fed
eration several years as director,
treasurer and chairman of various
Elaborate Program Arranged,
In the words of Miss Ltitie E,
Stearns, one of the directors of the
federation, "the business of being a
iliibwoman is a big business ana is
getting to be a bigger business every
lay." This is apparent from the
elaborate program that has been ar
'anged for the convention. The top.
cs indicate an increasingly wide
iange of affairs in which the club
u nineii are taking not only an inter
it but an active part. There was a
mie, for instance, when the New
Vo;k (.ity f ederation of Women's
v !t;ls could report on alt of its activi
ics at each convention, but now, says
.1". I urchc J. Grant, the president
f the city federation, it takes the six
convention of an administration to
: t through the reports of the thirty
i::lit committee which have devel
oped. The general federation has as its
oad object the furtherance of every
iiovement in the interest of women,
Inldren and mankind in general and
the program calls for reports and
lismssion by committers on art, child
welfare, civil service reforms, home
economics, conservation, industrial
and social questions, legislation, edu
cation, literature, music, public health
and under these headings come
subject ranging all the way from
moving pictures to international re
lationhip. One important announce
ment that will be made at the con
vention i the fact that the federa-

Student of University of
CLEVER SKITS AND SKETCHES
One of the largest crowds that
ever packed John Jacobs Memorial
Friday evening witnessed the crown
ing of Miss Gladys Talimadge uecn
of the May by the University of
The spectacle was as regal and full
of pomp as co-ed ingenuity could de
vise. First in the procession came
little Bobbie Kroneberger, J-ear-old
son of Mr. and Mrs. S. L. Krone
berger who was crown bearer. H?
was followed by the maids of honor
who grouped themselves about the
queen while a special chorus of
twenty-two May-pole dancers sang a
number of songs specially written for
the occasion by Miss Kate Mcilugh.
1 Miss Olga Anderson placed the
: crown on the head of the May queen.
The first tketch given by the fresh
man class called a Bargain Day at
Blumstein's" was a big succes. Roy
Schmidt as Blumstein proved a popu
lar hero with his correct pronuncia
tion of the Yiddish dialect. From the
time the freshman girls started a mad
rush for the ribbon counter to the
recovery by Miss Quito Eddy of her
lost chee-ild, the play was a rollick
German songs by the German club
were followed by the senior and pre
paratory department with the com
edy tketch "At the Photographer'."
"Vanity Fair" was next in order by
the Dramatic club. The sketch was
on the order of a style show and
showed the different changes of style
during the latter centuries,
The sophomore class featured with
"A Spring Dance," and the Utopian
society with "Maids. Modes and Man
ners." i'erhap? the sketch which attracted
the greatest notice was that given
by the Juniors "Roi-Xut." It was
a parody and take-off of members
of the college faculty with suggestive
little songs hitting on the character
istics of the professors. Emerson
(ioodrich in his portrayal of Dean
Malsey made the nit of the evening.
William Thompson also showed up
well in a clever makeup of the coun
try school teacher. Gene Berger gave
an impersonation of Miss Edna Man
tor, bead of the biology department.
The proceeds of the affair will be
given to the athletic department.
