THE return of Lady Astor as a
member of Parliament for the
v Sutton division of Plymouth,
it a triumph for the idea of woman
in politic. It if gratifying to wom
en all over the world that this
viscountess laid: claim to the office
on legitimate grounds, viz: the priv
- ilege to serve. Lady Astor said
.after election "There is a new
pint, both in public and in private
life, which is struggling through.
, By this I mean the spirit of citizen
ship and service which was brought
out by the war." She is said to have
a deep insight into the needs of the
working woman and the working
man; and a whole-hearted desire to
help. Her ready wit, her lack of
bitterness and her abounding energy
were no doubt potent factors in her
election. Although I cannot say.
"The best man won, I can say that
the best policy won" is a character
Whether' women seek the po
litical arena or not, the changing
world has brought them to a place
where they are extended the priv
ilege of equal citizenship with men,
and equal responsibility. Thus, in
terest and activity in politics be
comes a duty which no conscien
tious woman will shun. And to be
effective in the poltical life of our
country women will have to aligne
themselves with political parties.
Some i women don t like the idea;
they probably don't like washday,
tither, but the clothes have to be
cleaned. We have a government to
keep clean, or make clean, too. and
no woman, or man, has a right to
complain about the "soiled" pieces
in it, who does not take an interest
in elections and otherwise do- her
part as jan American citizen.

The Tug of Life and Death
Two warring forces the red blood cells and the white blood cells are always con'
tending for mastery in the blood. They are the processes of building up and tearing
down. During youth the building-up process of the red blood cells is in the ascen
dency so that die tendency of the body is all towards growth and development As
middle age approaches the two forces tend to equality while with the coming of old
age, the victory of the tearing down process of the white blood cells is manifested by
the slow, gradual decay of the vital energies.

Mrs. C W. Axtell.
Mrs. C. W. Axtell, who is mem
bership secretary and chairman for
the Tuesday Musical club, which
office she has held for several years,
is known as one of the most active
and effective workers of the club.
Her efforts during the present sea
son have had much to do with the
unprecedented enrollment which has
now gone to more than 1,000 mem
bers. Memberships in the club are
closed for the year. There will be
seats available to ,the public in the
four remaining concerts of the sea
son, but through public sale rather
than by membership privilege. The
next number to be presented by the
Tuesday musical will be Frances
Ingram, contralto, and the Zollner
quartet, on January 13 1920.
i Y. W. C. A. Activity.
Fifty-seven thousand, six .hun
dred and twenty-two means were
served in the Y. W. C. A. cafeteria
during September and October this
year. That means about a thousand
people, mostly women, a day.
Luncheon and dinner only are
served. A little compilation re
cently issued by the Y. W. C. A.
shows that this isn't the only branch
in which the organization has been
working. These figures speak for

1 Associated Charities. '
Twelve hundred and fifty people
in Omaha received help from the
Associated Charities during the
month of October. "This is only a
partial report, says Mrs. George
Doane, secretary. "We gave needed
assistance to 250 families and they
averaged five persons per . tamily.
We made 526 visits, gave 592 pieces
of clothing and 75 pairs of shoes.
The most frequent call for help
comes from widows, and usually
they are mothers of children."
All Saints Bazar.
All Saints church will hold its
Christmas bazar Friday, as previous

London, Dec. 4. Now that the
Slav nations of eastern Europe are
released from Muscovite rule, it is
important to realize that the root
difference between the Russian 'and
other Slavs lies in the Mongol strain
which is responsible for that indif
ference to life and human suffering
which Russia has s,hown again and
again. - ,
In Poland parental control is very
strong, almost patriarchal. To this
day no daughter uses the familiar
"thou" to either father or mother,
the third person is always employed.
Thus a eirl will sav: "Did mother
call?" "Does mother say I may go
out?" the direct form of address
being considered not only impolite.
but insubordinate. The mother's au
thority is supreme; a Polish girl may
die of a broken heart, but she will
very rarely marry against her moth
er's wishes. '
Generally speaking, and unlike the
French or the English, the Polish
woman loves her husband more than
her children. Capable of intense
passion, she has a flaming constancy
which domesticity cannot dull. The
Russian woman is amorously ven
turesome: she changes her lover
with her inclination. The Slav wom
an has a fidelity which outlasts all
The Slav woman dominates her
husband and her household, not only
in family affairs, but in concerns of
wider issue. She is not in the least
aggressive, your Polonaise is a most
feminine person and understands
the full importance of charm. She
has always played a leading role in
politics. "Germany s worst enemy
is the Polish mother," said Bis
marck, and in Russian, as ia German
Poland, it was the mother who kept
the name of patriotism burning.
From earliest youth her sons and
daughters were trained in the sub
terranean policy of defiance, which
inevitably ended in discovery and
The Slav woman, whether peasant
or intelligentsia, is a wonderful man
ager. She has the French capacity
for bargaining, and is a born cook.
At Christmas, Easter and other fes
tivities she is preparing for weeks
and keeps open house, pressing hos
pitality on all who come. There are
no cakes in the world as nice as
those they make in Poland, every
kind and variety, miracjes of appe
tizing daintiness. S
While her political emancipation
is complete, socially her liberty is
curtailed. Before Poland regained
her independence revolutionary i
leaders included women, and at the
.present moment women members sit
in the Polish Parliament. But while
it was regarded as a matter ot
course for a girl to meet all sorts
and conditions of men at any hour
of the day or night for political
purposes, -it was and is impossible
for an unmarried woman to go to
dinner with a man unless they are
affianced, and a young Slav girl does
net dream of having an ice or a
glass of tea with a boy friend.
This, I think, is the effect of Rus
sian rule. The Polish woman has an
extraordinary fascination for the
Russian, and the official and mill
tary caste always tried their utmost
to gain access to the homes ot the
Poles. From a social point of view,

would speak to a Russian unless she
were compelled, and as a conse

in public with young men of her

We MUST have the co-operation of the public during the
present coal shortage emergency if we are to avoid complete
cessation of street car service.
Yorkers can help by starting home as soon as possible
after being dismissed from work instead of staying downtown
until 5 o'clock. Shoppers can help by starting home between
4 and 5 o'clock. Everybody can help by letting an already
crowded car pass and waiting for one less crowded, and by-
moving up to the forward end of the car instead of blocking the
aisles. . ,
Unless we are enabled to reduce the number of cars, by
fully utilizing those that are being operated, we will soon ex
haust the supply of coal and come to a standstill.
