said . Mrs. Vayhinger, who is from

mother in the home is most neg

"There is no way to compare the
woman of southern Europe with the
American woman. The average
husband who immigrates to this
country believes that as head of the
family it is his right to carry on all
the negotiations for the family.
"He learns enough English to get
along, but when it comes to his wife
learning the language and ways of
the country he often objects.1 It is
her business to stay at home and
raise children, he thinks.
"Thus shut off the little foreign
mother often sees her children drift
ing away from her. They begin to
speak in a language she cannot un
derstand. Public and night schools
do much to remedy the situation.
But when the mother enrolls in
night schools she finds herself in the
midst of younger people whose
minds are more active. They laugh
at her slowness and the inability of
her poor hands, cramped by toil, to

"And in a short time she drops
out without even learning to write
her own name jn many cases: It is
up to the Woman's Christian Tem

where such cases are to be found
and help the little mother to learn
the English language."
Presidents of trie union in four
