MRS. GERTRUDE F. MARTIN denied
the oft-repeated statement that college
women bear fewer children than other
women in her talk at the Commercial
club Wednesday. Mrs. Martin was for
merly dean of women at Cornell univer
sity and is now executive secretary for the National
Association of Collegiate Alumnae.
'That statement was based on a comparison of
the number of chitdren of college women with- those
of women in a lower social stratum families of
Italian immigrants, for instance, where there are
many children," said Mrs. Martin. "The Associa
tion of Collegiate Alumnae sent out a questionnaire
to college women then, asking each woman to have
her sister or cousin or some friend of the same
social rank as herself to answer the same questions
as to number of children. The answers received
indicated that the college woman averaged one more
child than the woman of her own class who was not
a college graduate."
There are fewer deaths among children of college
women. This was another point brought out by the
questionnaire, said Mrs. Martin.
Another survey is now being made to find out
,the number of college women in professions who
marry and then go back to their professions. This
is to determine how long a college woman is of
economic value to her community and what time she
devotes to home-making.
Vocational guidance, one of the biggest educa
tional movements of the day, was sponsored by the
Collegiate Alumnae. It now maintains nine place
ment bureaus for college women alone, the two
closest to Omaha at Kansas Gty and Chicago. The
local association has established a vocational bureau
for children. Seven scholarships for graduate work
are also maintained by the national organization.
Americanization of the immigrant, enlargement
of the college woman's organ, the Collegiate Alum
nae Journal, and co-operation at the time of the
conference of Pan-American women in 1920 are a
few aims of the National 'Association of Collegiate
When organized thirty-five years ago, its purpose
was to secure better educational opportunities for
women who were barred from many schools at that
time. Its earliest survey was to refute the state
ment that education impaired women's health and
other much-exploited theories. .
Thanksgiving offerings arc the rule at most club
meetings this week, the Old People's home especially
being the recipient of a goodly bit of generosity.
Meetings scheduled for Thursday have been post
poned or abandoned for the most part.

OCIETY'S interest is directed this week on
the large bridge party at the Blackstone
hotel Saturday afternoon, given to raise funds
to purchase materials for the Franco-Belgian
Relief society to use in its work of bandage
rclling and preparation of surgical dressings
in the new Baird building quarters. Mrs. John A.
McShane, the president; Madame August Mothe
Borglum, honorary president and chief inspiration
for the work; all officers and members of the society
are indefatigable in their efforts toward the success
of the big affair.
The entire upper floor of the Blackstone, includ
ing ball room, tea room and parlors, will be given
over to the players, the game beginning at 2 o'clock.
For the accommodation of those who will attend
Mrs. Anthony Merrill's lecture in the morning and
who would also desire to attend the bridge party,
the Blackstone management will serve a 50-ccnt
table d'hote luncheon. About 450 tickets at $1.00
have been distributed under the direction of Mrs.
O. C Redick, and, since score cards and all neces
saries are donated, the proceeds promise to be grat
ifying. Auction bridge only, pivoting instead of progres
sing, will be Ihe game, the same plan as the last two
Creche benefits managed by Mrs. McShane, to be
observed. Four players may arrange to come and
play together or entire card clubs may make reser
vations. Twenty-three handsome prizes, donated to Mrs.
McShane, will he exhibited on a raised platform.

the beautiful trophies, and so on. The prizes include
two pink crepe de chine night robes, a carved gold

event of most importance to suffragists. Mrs. Mc
Clung is Canada's best known suffragist and is a
