Among the progressive movements of
the day, none is more significant than
the widespread organization of women
into women's clubs. One of the unique
features of this movement is the univer
sal approbation accorded it. Society
has no quarrel with the woman's club,
for the women who lead society are
there. An occasional man ridicules the
movement, but this is generally for the
purpose of making conversation or to
reproach an extremist. I am willing to
admit that when a woman belongs to
twenty-five clubs she cannot be of much
use at home or of any acoouni to any
club. More than all the intellectual stim
ulus which each woman receives from
club membership is the earnest, enthu
siastic interest aroused in all matters
pertaining to the elevation and beauti
fying of home life, in municipal reforms

suitable equipment for the varied needs

state house. When completed, 'this
proposed commodious club house will
have cost 175,000 outside of the value of
