By HELEN DEFICE.
Well-bred men and womennever

form. ';' y : r ,
In educated society , there is no
place for the bigot whose prejudices
are expressed in public without the
slightest consideration for the most
sacred feelings of .others. ( To an
swer in kind merely stirs lip. strife;
to ignore the utterance is-not con
sistent with self-respect. In the il
lustrationthe departing ; guest is
leaving as courteously as possible in
the circumstances: but her . depar
ture is in itself a rebuke to the of

remarks, . .
Ar address bv Mrs. Thomas G
W'inter of Minnasota, president of
me ucnerai reaeration ot women s
clubs, delivered at Chautauqua, N.
Y., recently, gives a definite idea of
the policy of the federation 'during
the comjng biennium. Mrs. Winte
said: ' :
. "Americanism was the keynote of
ow Ues Moines biennial, and .Amer
icanism must be the keynote of our
'wo years work untrt we meet again.
In . a time of upheaval and hazy
thinking and social turmoil these
groups of ( ours can do no greater
service than to "keep their minds
serenely fixedpon the great ideals
ot America ana thir hands busy in
doing the work that will keep these
ideals stable. " , ')
-"It has become plain that the
mainstay of. a democracy is a public
both informed and active. I. have
wished that we might adopt as our
self-descriotion some such .words as
thele A body of organized women
in every community. who can be-de
pended: upon to promote whatever
leads to the betiermeitf of life.' We
are volunteer social workers. In a
democracy, official work can not be
turned over' wholly to officials. The
citizen must keep pace with the of-
hciaTTor we become a mere bureau
cracy. ' It is our part to dovetail
our work with great public aims.
just as we did in war time, under
standing, the issues at stake, and
with equally conscientious living up
to our obligations and our engage

of such volunteers in evcr.ytown and
"The federation has peculiar fa
citities for this kind of service. It
is not a "one idea" organization. Jt
sees lite whole and discourages the
one-pnrposevcrank. It has all types
of women, rich and poor, radical and
conservative, cit and country, edu
cated and untrained. It.is not a class
affair. We, realize that the things
that bind us together are far deeper

"Among -the many" answers that
came to Mrs, Burdette when she was
making a survey of cjub women's
wishes in regard tp reorganization,
a' large proportion ' asked fori a sim
plification of departments f ."work.
Your new board of directorscting
on this suggestion; have grouped the
activities as follows. Fine arts, in

applied education, including educa

health, industrial conditions, con
servation and civil serju'ce,legisla
tion, press and publicity.
"The reorganization has' been made
not with a view to wiping-out any
of our interests or activities, but be
cause there are tides in the affairs
of the country when certain subjects
suddenly loom big and others are
less immediately important. It was
thought that the chairman of a group

Problems That Perplex
Answered Br -
Billy: You ' are 'unnecessarily
anxious about your beaiiK. A girl
of 16 has lots of time ahpad of her
to attract them and should not have
given up in despair at so early an
age even though not extremely pop
ular wun tne boys. Give more
thought to the kind of men you will
attract later on, and try to make
yourself intelligent and physically
beautiful enough to appeal to the
very finest men of your acquaint
ance. Good health will make von
physically beautiful.. That means
you must have outdoor exercise,
plenty o, sleej), good food, and,
above all, a good disposition.
Yon Are Correct. r
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee:
A woman was expressing her ODin
ior. of what she thought of a young
fellow of 19 or 20 who never went
out with a girl. V
To quote her words "ho was a
sissy, a big boob," and a fellow with
no spine or backbone, or something
too contemptible to have anything to
do with." ;
My opinion is that no age Is too
young or too old to go with a girl,
provided that the person can find
some decent and respectable girl to
go with and not be running around
with every "skirt" on the avenue.
" CONSTANT RKADER.
Tfour opinion seems to me to be
correct. It is absurd to call a boy
names becarje he has not found
girls a necfsary part of his life.
The chances are that he's a fine fel

the games yourself and see that they
go well. -.
My dear, I do hot ' think once" a
week too often to date with a young
man, but I should not advise you
to date oftener. A girl of your age
should , be reading, studying, and
learning household,, tasks rather
than keeping her thoughts occupied
with her engagements with -young
men. tior when' a girl is 16 she
should be preparing herself to make
a strong, healthy and. well read
young woman. If you late less

Only a small proportion of rural

Americans in this country, of whom
more than 6.000,000 cannot read nor

of American-born do not come in

The movement' is to establish
good libraries .In county seats, these
central libraries to have branches
throughout the county and" tous:
public schools, and other centers as

Opportunities for Saleswomen.
There is a tendency to the belief
among business girls that there is
no future for saleswomen in retail
stores. This is a mistaken Idea, but
because of it many girls whose nat
ural business ability k-ans toward
buying, and selling find themselves
in positions utterly unsuited to them,
or even doing work for which they
have a" positive aversion.
They are not aware of the possi
bilities for a successful career which
salesmanship opens up to them. 1
In selling,! particularly for retail
houses, there, is always the possi
bility of beconing a buyer. The po
sition of buyer carries a fascination
fof the average business girl, with
its suggestion of importance, big sal
ary and the annual, semi-annual or
quarterly trips to the central mar
kets in this country and abroad. But
somehow or other it has always
seemed unattainable even to the am
bitious girl. '
Up to a feilv ears ago I would
have said that a girl starting put as
a green salesperson would have to
contemplate an apprenticeship of
many yearsiefore -she would have
even a tetnote chance of becoming
a buyer; that it would be only after
tireless years of service when, of
course, she was no longer a girl
that the prospect of some time at
taining the position of buyer would
be hers. '
Weren't buyers, those who weren't
men, women whose hair was already
gray or turning? What chancejiad
a young woman of attaining the de
sired position? v , J
Conditions have changed, however,
in rerent years, and retail houses,
even the nationally known ones, are
displaying a tendency to acquire
younger women as buyers in their
The, experience of a girl I know
has just brought this home to me.
A few months ago Miss T. de
cided that she wanted a business
career. Her family was an influen
tial one, and several attractive open
ings were made to order for her;
but, wanting to start out absolutely
on' her own, she turned down the po
sitions offered. t
She had the idea that she would
like to be a department buyer for
one of the large stores, and knew
that her only way to such a position
lay through the selling field. On her
own initiative she asked for and ob
tained an interview with the head of
one of the big department stores.
The general manager of the store
was impressed with her spirit and
ambition. He told her that he
would gladly give her the chance she
wanted if .she were willing to serve
