TUST what ft means to be president of a large
woman's clubof perhaps 300 to 400 members,-'
or even more7 so far as expendituVe of time,
" thnmrht. effort and strength is concerned, the
Javf rage woman seldom stops to realise. The
Tuesday Morning Musical club, the Omaha
Society of Fine Arts and the Association of
Collegiate Alumnae are such organizations, but' the
greatest tax of all, it is agreed, falls upon the presi
dent of the Omaha Woman's club, whose nine de
partments hold meetings each fortnight, some each
week, besides the big meeting of the club proper.
Not specialized, but generalizing, ii the works
of thi, organization, its interest touching
most every phase of civic, economic, philanthropic .
and educational work. Maintaining a watchful eye
on the programs Qf each "Uepartment, as wejl as ex
ecuting the work which falls naturally to the head
of the club proper, attending as many departmental
meetings as she possibly can, listening to pleas,
f impositions, claims and suggestions for probable
ines of work, all fall to the lot of the club executive.
A systematic, businesslike outlining of the 'day's
program and a strict adherence to it, was the solu
tion hit upon by Mrs. E. M. Syfert, now president
of the Woirian's fclub. Incorporated therefor in the
clubjnanuel under the title "Special Notices," Mrs.
Syfert made th) insertion:
"The president will receive telephone calls per
taining to club business each morning from 8 until
10 o'clock, except Monday mornings of. the regular
club day.. Members will please limit their conver
sations to three minutes. i
"On the mornings of the regular club day the re
cording secretary will receive all calls intended ior
the president. .
"The president will be at home to club members
frdm 2:30 until 6 o'clock on the following Friday
afternoons: October 20, November 3' and 17, De
cember 1 and 15, Jarfuary 12 and 26, February 9 and
23, March 9 and 23 and April 6 and 20."
The need for -making these rulings is proof .that a
woman's club today is a businesslike proposition,
not a tea-sipping, gossiping, effortless, group of
Looming up above all women's interests for, the
week is the entertainment by local women of the
Women's Hughes Alliance train Saturday between
the hours of 1 and 3 o'clock. A reception at' the
Hotel Fontenelle and street speekhes have already
been arranged for the party on the, campaign special.

ick Boswell, Elizabeth Cutting, Dr. Katherine Be

Mrs. Qeorgc W. Stevens of Toledo, Miss Harriet
Vittum, Mrs. William Severin and Mrs. Raymond
Robins of Chicago, and Dr. Katherine Edson, Mrs.
Frank Gibson of California are also included in the
party. Miss Elizabeth Freeman, the advance repre
sentative, who was here several weeks ago, will be
with the party again.
"Why women are for Hughes," is explained by
these women as follows:
"1. Because he lias always stood for the rights
and privileges of the rank and file citizen. This
is proved by his public service regulation, his
Aliitinri rafrtFivii! titc loKnt U ml atn' ft e errwrttmrxr
of New York.
Because he gave New York tine mosF signifi
cant labor legislation ever secured by a governor
in any state in this country. Ndress than fifty
six significant labor laws were secured by him.
They included: ,
'(Workmen's compensation reinoving the bur
dew of industrial accident from the workman
and distributing it among employer, employe
i and the public.
"Protection of children in industry.
"Better factory inspection.
""Better factory conditions. ' '
"Industrial education.
"A state policy aivd many state laws for the
, protection of ignorant aliens. .
"3. Because he came .out unequivocally for the
federal amendment. N
'4. Because he stanijs for probation and the
protection of the home. He secured for New
York for 'the' first time an intelligent probation
"5. Because he has aiways insisted on good
working conditions for women and children in
"6. Because he stands for an Americanism (jjat
ill protect American . women and children from
the fate that befell the women and children of
'7. Because his record showshim to bca man
of deeds, not words." -

GRAND OPERA PARTIES will be the most
interesting social events to the majority
of society people during the coming week.
Nearly aH box holders .will occupy their
boxes both on the opening night and on
- formal suppers after the opera. Since Mr. and Mrs.
George Brandeis are out of the city, their box will
nrnhnhlv h lltlnrrtiniH Ura Pharla T TTnonf
is expected to return from Minneapolis in time to
attend the 'oneiiinir number nf the Atnnriatft R-
;y tailers' Opera and Concert Course. A great many
people are specially interested in hearing GeraMine
Farror in Carmen, the role she is said to have made
. peculiarly ner own, so that the opening night will
no doubt see society out en masse. "II Trovatore,"
however, is an old favorite and will draw many be
cause of its musical charms..
The events Which will keep . us, so busy- this
wek are only the beginning of the stream of things
that will absorb society's interest later in the winter.
Monday of next week John Cowoer Powvs is to
lecture here under the auspices of the Vassar club. ,
When Mr. Powys was in Omaha last winter under
the auspices of the Fine Arts society everyone was
alive with interest in his talks. Dr. Powys will speak
at 4 o'clock at the Brandeis' theater a week from
tomorrow. ' '
Following close up the Vassar club's program ,
will come the first attraction which the Tuesday
Morning Musical club is bringing. -Thursday of1
next week the company of Russian dancers, accom
panied by a symphony orchestra and Miss Margaret
jarman, coiurauo, wii appear ac me uranaeis tne
ater in the evening.
For some time after that we will all be in an
unsettled state quite out of keeping with any social
activity. The throes of a critical presidential elec
tion will be upon us, and every thought will turn in
that direction. The Omaha and University, clubs
will be the scenes of numerous supper parties, which
will be prolonged until election returns received over
private wires have offered the temporary solution
of the knotty problem which is occupying our men
and women alike. Never have so many women been
interested in pontics as tms year, j he suttragists
and the anti-suffragists are equally active and con- .
spicuous in this campaign. The common interest of
greeting women who arc and will be the first of
nnr lanrl hn hrnifkrht th hntnp iA 'va,unna
and has set all our society women into deep discus
sions of the great questions ji government.
When the presidential candidates have been safe
ly pigeonholed it will be time to think of home-coming
youngsters. For the Thanksgiving and Christ
mas nouuays a1 great many entertainments are Deing
planned conditionally. The dancing party which
Mr. and Mrs. Gottlieb Ston are giving December 27
for Miss Elsie and Mr.' Robert Storz is the largest
party yet announced. The Coming of the Yale Glee
club on Friday of the same week will provide suffi
cient exejtcment to the fair maidens of 'Omaha to
recompense them for any dull das of the season.
Two weddings of interest in sorority circles art
to be chronicled today. Kappa Alpha Theta girls
came over from Lincoln yesterday for the marriage
of Miss Louise Beclwell to Mr. Eugene Holland last
evening. Tomorrow the members of Pi Beta Phi
will make a pilgrimage to Cupid's shrine, the occa
sion beii:g the marriage of Miss Adeleavis, a very
Eopular Pi Phi, to Mr. Robert Daniels. This evening
ir. and Mrs. W. U. Davis are entertaining the wed
ding party at Sunday evening supper at their home
following the wedding rehearsal.
