they would only make their plans early
in the year they might be included in
the trip made by the larger clubs which
would lessen the coet materially. The
real value of the artist's committee has
not been fully tested by many of the
clubs, however: the western 'section ia
not ashamed aod "It doth not
pear vhat it shall be."

Vice President Western Section,

A "man's night" at the biennial is a
distinct innovation in woman's club
conventions. 'Heretofore what part man
has played in. the programs of the bien
nial has been confined to addresses of
welcome and the like, but at the Mil
waukee meeting one session will be held
wherein only men will speak, and only
men will sing. This novelty ie assured
by the agreement of the Milwaukee
Maennerchor to sing on Thursday eve
n'ing during the biennial and by the
shifting of the program which puts Dr.
George II. Krlehn of Chicago on the
program for that night instead of for
the afternoon of the same day, as was
originally announced. Dr. Kriehn, who
is a Ph. D. from Strasburg university
and an authority on municipal art, is to
be one of the chiet speakers of the' bien
nial. Not a woman will appear on the
platform except to introduce' the speak
ers. The art committee, owing to this
change in dates, will really have three
evening sessions, as it is planning to
keep open house at the public library
on Monday evening preceding the con
vention. Singers are engaged, and Miss
Mabel Messenger, a well known harpist
of Chicago, will play not only on that
evening but on every day while the
rooms are open. Wednesday evening
the program on sculpture will be an
nounced. All year books, badges, pic
tures of club buildings and general club
ed the last Dieting of this department
Friday enjoyed a rare treat. Mrs. Brock
and Miss Rogera had charge of this
meeting. Mrp. Brock's subject was
"Decoration in Porcelain" and was
charmingly given. Twenty-live years
ago ceramic art was to women practic-
yet ap- ally unknown, for apart from those who
may have been employed in subordinate
positions in factories, few if any had ex
plored the field. Today the exhibits
shown of amateurs and professionals
show what heights the art has reached.
The principal potters all over the coun
try have become interested in the man
ufacture of artistic porcelains. There
is a united effort toward the cultivation
of a truly American school of ceramic
art. The actual imitation of any exlet
ist artist or manufactory should be
avoided, though in the reach for orig
inality, beauty and fitness should not be
sacrificed. In the decoration of a vase
the grouping must reveal the character
istics of the form and, if necessary, con
ceal a weakness. Rookwood ware ia
very beautiful, with its well chosen dec
orations, its rich and subdued coloribgs.
A great contrast to this Rookwofd is
the Royal Copenhagen porcelain. jFhis
differs essentially from the other in that
it is pure porcelain, while the Rookwood
is pottery. The subject was illustrated
with many beautiful ceramics. Miss
Rogers then spoke on ''Decoration- in
Pottery." Some one accidentally dis
covered that moistened clay when
moulded with the hands retains 3be
form which pressure has given it. If
unmixed it contracts in drying and falls
to pieces, but by adding a certain
amount of sand the difficulty is ovfer- M

Romans gave the ware a coating of wix

The music department of the Lincoln
Woman's club held its last meetincr with
Miss Ida C. Young at her pleasant
home on Thirty-third street. The
subject for the afternoon was Beethoven
and was presented in the form of a
piano recital by Mrs. Henry P. Eames,
who played or sang the following com
positions: Sonata E flat opus 7, Molto allegro
con brio; Largo Rondo.
Sonata C minor, opus 13, Grave-Molto
allegro Adagio Rondo.
Songs "The Minstrel's Ghost," "The
Minstrel Boy," "Nature's Adoration."
Sonata D minor, opus 13, No. 2, Al
legro Adagio Allegretto.
Ices were terved at the close of the
pleasant informal recital, by Miss
Young, assisted by Mrs. Eames. This
department has been very enthusiastic
and has done much profitable work the
past year. Sincere regrets were ex
pressed by the members that the year's
work had come to a close.

the Lincoln Woman's club who attecd-
in 1520. Stoneware was made in Eu
rope at an early date. The great aim of
English potters has been to make and
perfect a pure white earthenware.
Wedgwood introduced the cream-colored
ware, called queensware, which is
still largely used. Of all the English
potters Wedgwood was without doubt
the greatest. He invented eight or
nine different kinds of ware, the most
noted being queensware, the jasper or
Wedgwood, and the black basalt, which
he himself liked best of all; the Royal
Worcester, Crown Derby, Menton, Coal
port, Coapland and Doulton are all from
English potters. Every piece of Royal
Worcester is stamped, registered and
numbered. The French porcelains were
described. The Limoges or Haviland
china, with which we are all so familiar,
the beautiful Sevres, which commands
very high prices and is quite beyond
the means of ordinary purchasers. The
marks of this factory are various; at the
present time the porcelain bears the
monogram "F. R.'' French Republic.
The famous Dresden china of Germany,
the beautiful oriental pottery of Hun
gary and the exquisite Delft ware of
Holland were described. The Rook
wood, which has been mentioned before,
is an American production, and ranks
