ARE YOU OVER THE TOP IN
PHYSICAL EFFICIENCY ?
New Physical Examinations Test
Strength and Prowess
Every student is to be graded in her
physical examination this year according
to her physical efficiency or non-efficiency.
There are eight possible grades, and rat-
ings are made, as in the swimming tests,
by definite standards.
The examination consists of gymnastic
and athletic tests. Under the heading of
gymnastic tests come trials of strength,
balance, and agility, co-ordination and |
control, in which the regular gymnasium
apparatus is employed. The athletic tests
include examinations in swimming and
diving, jumping, and speed and endurance
running. The athletic teams made by a
student are also considered in fixing her
Special training in the various lines in |
which students are deficient will follow |
the examinations. The gymnastic classes |
will be divided into squads according to |
the different grades of efficiency, and
graded swimming and diving classes will |
be held by Dr. Bishop, Miss Kirk, and |
The aim of the new order is, of course,
the attainment of a higher grade of effi- |
ciency by everyone in college. As im-
provement is noted, ratings will be raised.
It is hoped that by the end of the year no
one will be left in the three grades of
CROWD WAITING AS LOAN BOOTH
With $6100 toward the college quota of
$25,000 at the end of the first day, the
college has shown its determination to
“lend as they are fighting.” The loan
booth opened in Taylor Monday morning.
The active campaign for subscriptions
will begin Saturday afternoon, when Lieu-
tenant Fletcher of the Royal Flying
Corps, who was wounded at Vimy Ridge,
will open the rally on Taylor steps.
Among those on the “honor roll” for
the first two days are President Thomas,
Dean Maddison, Dr. Schenck, Dr. Ten-
nent, Dr. and Mrs. de Laguna, Dr. and
Mrs. Frank, Dr. and Mrs. Smith, Dr.
Sabin, and Dr. Swindler. Joseph Con-
nelly, an employee on the grounds, is for
the second time at the head of the list as
Liberty Loan window cards and buttons
are given to all who make a cash pay-
Last year $197,200 was raised on the
campus for the Second Liberty Loan and
$56,000 for the Third. This sum for the
second loan was made possible by the
fact that the college invested in bonds a
part of the money paid by the students
for their college bills.
MISS FRANKLIN LOAN CAPTAIN
Dr. Marion Parris Smith, who twice
last year led the Liberty Loan team to
victory, has resigned as head of the Lib-
erty Loan Committee in order to give
more time to a piece of government work
in which she is engaged.
The new head of the Liberty Loan De-
partment, elected by the War Council, is
Miss Marjorie Franklin, Fellow in Eco-
nomics at Bryn Mawr, 1914-15, who is this
year taking one’of the’sections of the
Minor Economics Course.
Miss Franklin worked this summer in
the New York‘ Natidnal Bank of Com-
mérce on War Revenue legislation, cov-
ering both ‘financial and legal ground.
Last winter She was Instructor of’ Polit-
ical Science at Vassar, and the year be-
fore was in Washington in the Tariff Di-
vision of the Buréau of Foreign and Do-
mestic Commerce. .
CLEVER PLANS OF ’22 FRUSTRATED

The time-honored ruse of a Sophomore

Freshmen Carry Out Plans
KE. Anderson, the first Freshman chair-
man, wrote fifty copies of the song in the
middle of Monday night and sewed them
into her head band, which she wore night
and day, until they were distributed at
the. Freshman class meeting, held Thurs-
day evening in the gymnasium. ‘After
studying the words for a few minutes, each
one of the class chewed up her piece of
paper and swallowed it to insure against
any stray piece of paper falling into the
hands of the enemy. But an ingenious
Sophomore, who had been acting the part
of a Freshman since the beginning of col-
| lege, ran up to one of ’22 on the way up
to the arch and, saying that she had not
been able to attend the meeting, induced
her to tell the song. Contrary to tradi-
tion the Freshmen worked out and put
into effect the plan suggested by 1920 en-

BRYN MAWR OPENS FIFTH WAR YEAR WITH STAND FOR
President Thomas Says War Experimentation in Vocational Courses is Over
(Statement of the 34th Opening of Bryn Mawr
College authorized by President Thomas.)
Bryn Mawr College opened last week
for its thirty-fourth year with an over-
flowing Chapel, students standing in
every available place. The college is
crowded, all the dormitories on the cam-
pus being full to the attics, and two cot-
tages on property adjoining the campus
having been rented and filled with stu-
[In addition to Llysyfran a cottage on
the Collins place has’ been rented to
house some of the graduate students. ]
The college tea room is feeding the
students who cannot get seats in the
The graduate school also is very large,
the Carola Woerishoffer Department of
Social Economy alone having over 35
graduate students and having refused
many more. Twenty graduate students
are being trained in this department at
the request of the Government for the po-
sition of industrial supervisors on schol-
arships granted by the Young Women’s
Christian Association. These women hold
college degrees and have specialized in
social service work. They will form a
group of the most highly trained women
for such work in the country.
President Thomas, in Opening Address,
Sounds Call-to Strenuous “Study
In ‘her’ opening address’ President
Thomas ‘said’ in part:
“We meet ‘today’ at the opening of
the 34th academic-year of Bryn Mawr Col-
lege in this glorious fifth year of the great
world war for freedom, justice and peace
to dedicate ourselves to another year of
study and intellectual preparation for the
work that must be done by the girls now
in college if it is to be done at all. * * *
I believe that Bryn Mawr’s war experi-
mentation in vocational study, slight as it
has been, is over. Our faculty, as a
whole, is, I believe, prepared to stand
firmly by its belief in the supreme value
of intellectual non-vocational training.
Our graduates, as a whole, and the older
members of our student body believe, as
we do, that the best possible preparation
for whatever you wish to do in life is
strenuous intellectual work during the
four years of your college course, pre-
ceded by really hard intellectual work in
school tested by really difficult entrance
103 in Freshman Class
In spite of rumors that Bryn Mawr
would be unable to accommodate a large
entering class, the Freshmen number 103.
With 96 Seniors, 74 Juniors, and 117
Sophomores, the undergraduates total
390. 3 hearers, 16 resident fellows,” 63
graduate students, and 2 non-resident fel-
lows bring the whole number of students
examinations. This sort of college work
we are going to offer you this year, with
no exceptions made and no excuses ac-
cepted. And we know from past experi-
ence that you will do your part and study
faithfully and well. But we want you to
do even better this year than ever before
because the need for the Bryn Mawr
brand of education is greater than ever
before. We wish to appeal to you to help
us to get ail the slackers out of the col-
lege. This is no time for idlers anywhere
and, above all, Bryn Mawr in war time is
no place for them.
Splendid Record of Bryn Mawr Women
“T wonder if you fully realize how much
will be expected of you if you are’to live
up to the reputation already won for
Bryn Maw? by the splendid war work of
her daughters who have left the college.
I hear of it everywhere, and what seems
to be the distinguishing characteristic of
the work of Bryn Mawr women ‘is their
power of leadership. Within the last few
days a great industrial plant and a very
important Government department at
Washington have written to me, saying
that the Bryn Mawr women already em-
ployed have done so extraordinarily well
and had exercised so great an influence
for good over the other employees’ that
they: wanted as many more Bryn Mawr
graduates as we could possibly furnish

niece are going to the great Bryn Mawr

Cc. A. Receives Out-of-Doors
Taking the form of a strictly anti-flu
gathering, the Christian Association Re-
ception last Saturday was held on the
lawn in front of Merion. The board and
association presidents received from be-
hind masks and extended a hearty yard-
stick with a warm handshake for all at
the further end. They wore kilties,
gowns and other strange costumes so that
they would not be recognized by any
Speeches by the presidents of all the
associations were made on and in soap-
boxes, just as the soap-box decreed.
Since all big gatherings have been pro-
hibited, this novel entertainment with
games and races was devised to take the
place of a formal evening party in the
BRYN MAWR- SCRUBS
The old Lancaster Inn, which has been
turned into an emergency hospital for in-
fluenza patients by the town commission-
ers, is being scrubbed and swept by a
group of Bryn Mawr workers in bathing
caps, influenza masks and hockey skirts.
One of the Bryn’ Mawr professors of the
classics helped to keep the home fires
burning with a pile of kindling wood and,
as the Community Center is attending to
the housekeeping and furnishings, Miss
Jane Smith supervised the work.
Oct. 16 Last Day for Course Books
Course books, fully stamped and signed
according to the rules posted in Taylor,
must be turned in at Dean Maddison’s

Swered the call to scrub out the Lancas-
ter Inn, a record that is indicative of the
spirit which ought to characterize the
year. Bryn Mawr is about the first col-
lege to have conscription and all the
other colleges are watching judiciously to
see if it succeeds. If it does it will be
due to the spirit of the college and the
Spirit of the college is what each student
makes it. Every person in Bryn Mawr
who is not for conscription is against it
and with one person against it, conscrip-
tion cannot succeed. The United States
government enforces conscription by the
penalty of imprisonment. The college
has a weapon quite as effective—public
opinion—and public opinion is going to
be for 100 per cent effort.
Open Faculty Lectures
Anyone who has indulged during the
past week in “visiting” other classes than
the ones in which she is enrolled must
settle down to her limited fifteen hours
a week with real regret. No matter how
carefully a student may map out her
~course through college, there will always
be some fascinating subject she has not
room for, some brilliant professor whose
lectures she can never attend.
Would not this disappointment be les-
sened if members of the faculty could find
time to give occasional open lectures, on
subjects connected with their regular
courses? Much as professors are said to
dislike giving a “bird’s-eye view” of a
subject, they might be willing to give a
general lecture, if, instead of the ten min-
utes of morning Chapel, they had an hour
or two, in the afternoon or evening, at
In this way the older students might
gain a general impression of other sub-
jects than the one or two in which they
are majoring, and underclassmen be
guided as to the ‘courses they wish to
take up. Best of all, each undergraduate
would become acquainted with many of
the Bryn Mawr faculty who at present,
unfortunately, exist for her only on the
front page of the catalogue.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR °

sponsible for opinions expressed in this
Calls Bulletin Boards Blot on Landscape
To the Editors of the College News:
When I came to reunion last June, the
one blot on the landscape was the bulle-
tin boards. They were bad when I was
in college and they are no better now,
and have not kept pace with other im-
provements apparent right and left. Now
the solution has come to me, after a good
deal of worry, and I am planning to try it
out in a bandage factory where I am do-
ing “efficiency” (loathesome word) work
for the duration of the war.
The idea is this: Conceive of the bul-
letin boards as a newspaper published at
regular intervals, say daily, twice a week,
or weekly. Make the board as readable
as a newspaper would have to be. Put
everything in concise headline or news-
paper form; have definite spacing for cer-
tain classified news, announcements, or
advertising of interest to campus read-
ers; banish all items that are out of date.
Further developments I leave to you.
I should aim at clearness of arrangement,
brevity and pithiness of style, originality,
balance, and order. Announcements
should not be tacked on top of each other,
or by one corner, so that they flutter in
the passing breeze.
As to organization, I should suggest
that the bulletin boards be taken over by
the College News, who shall run them in
conjunction with their regular sheet,
which we all look forward to receiving.
In the factory, conditions are a little
different, and we have definitely aban-
doned the idea of a shop newspaper. The
bulletin boards are to take the place of a
weekly printed sheet. In college they
could supplement and feed the College
News. I do not know just how your or-
ganization works, but I presume that you
have a representative in each hall. This
girl could very properly undertake to
manipulate the bulletin board in her own
hall. She, ex-officio, keeps in touch with
things brewing and doing, and must have
journalistic ability and experience. She
can run the bulletin board like the boards
outside of newspaper offices, not forget-
ting to keep the bulletin board needs of
the college in general as important as
those of the News in particular.
I do not anticipate any difficulty in tak-
ing over the care of the bulletin boards
from the present managers. In my day, I
think, it formed a minor—a very minor—
department of the Undergraduate Asso-
ciation, but it never reached its highest
possibilities then or now. It is a big, big
asset going to waste.
I should be very glad to hear the News
had carried out my suggestion, and shall
be very glad to help the managing board
further, if they decide to undertake the
matter. With all good wishes,
Marjorie Young 1908.

Says in part:
“In Paris we had our first first-hand
experience with the Hun. In the six
nights that we were there we had four
air-raids. Two of them were really very
severe, the one on June 27th being the
worst they had had for a long time. One
bomb fell within a couple of blocks of our
hotel, but fortunately fell in the street,
and no one was hurt.
“It is really quite an experience to hear
the sirens give the ‘alerte.’ Then all the
new people in town run down to the cel-
lars on the first floors of houses, and the
old inhabitants just turn over with a sigh,
and go to sleep again. I was so curious
that I hated to go below. The second
night I viewed the raid from the shelter
of the arcade. The play of the search-
lights searching the sky fot the raiders,
and the bursting of the shells sent up by
the anti-aircraft guns, was most interest-
“This place, La Courtine, is right in the
center of France, almost. We can tell
where we are in this zone (service of
supplies) as it is neither at the front nor
on the coast. I’m glad, too, because then
I can tell you more about things. The
country is lovely, is high (2200 feet) and
the air clean and cool.
“The canteen here is a large one and
has seven workers. The temporary
buildings are now being completed, with
a writing room in one and a billiard room
in another, which will help a little and
relieve the congestion in our room.

BATES HAS RECORD SUMMER
More Student Workers Than Usual
For the first time in years, according to
F, Clarke ’19, chairman of the Bates Com-
mittee, enough workers volunteered for
Bates House last summer to entertain
and keep house properly for the total of
300 guests from Spring Street. Thirty-
three workers, including Bryn Mawr stu-
dents and their friends, under the direc-
tion of Miss Virginia Deems, set a new
record for the Long Branch vacation
Fewer business girls were entertained
at Bates this summer than in previous
years, as an effort was made to confine
the guests principally to mothers and
children. Clean-up Week in June was fol-
lowed by the arrival of members of a
Ladies’ Missionary Society. Next came
the kindergarten and nursery children,
and later groups of Italian and American
mothers and their babies.
Miss Deems was assisted by Miss Vir-
ginia Lancaster, a graduate of Agnes
Scott College, South Carolina, and E.
Williams ’20. Miss Dora Gray and Miss
Ruth Anderson, also of Agnes Scott Col-
lege, spent the entire summer at Bates.
Miss Walmer of Denbigh acted as house-
keeper. The other workers were:

Clever Plans of ’22 Frustrated
(Continued from page 1.)
No Torches This Year
The Freshmen formed in a line under
Pembroke at eight o’clock and, carefully
guarded by the Juniors and led by the
Bryn Mawr Band, ran to the athletic field.
On account of the war no torches could
be bought, but a huge bonfire blazed on
the lower field.
When the Freshmen had finished ‘Hail,
we are gathered here,” to the tune of
“Hail, hail, the gang’s all here,” the
Sophomores burst out triumphantly with
“Boo Hoo for ’22.”
1922 ELECTS SECRETARY PRO TEM.
Serena Hand, Merion, has been elected
temporary secretary for 1922. The tem-
porary Freshman song-leader is Margaret
Krech, Pembroke West.
The order in which members of the
Freshman ministry will take their turn
at presiding over the class was deter-
mined by lots drawn by the Junior Com-
mittee. E. Anderson, chairman last week,
is succeeded this week by M. Tyler, who
will be followed in order by K. Gardner,
P. Smith, and C. Stuart.
Following the vote of the mass meeting
held last spring, the Health Department
this year requires every student to sign
up five periods of exercise a week, two of
which represent Physical Development |
drills. These periods must extend over
at least four days, thus allowing only one
day a week when two periods may be
Required exercise begins next Monday.
Smith Closes Class Rooms
Smith was forced to stop classes last
Thursday, October 3d, because of the in-
fluenza epidemic. No student is allowed
to leave her house of residence excepting
for exercise and then only with another

QUARANTINE RULES EXTENDED
Three new rules were added to the in-
fluenza quarantine regulations by the
Health Department last Saturday:
1. No visitors from off the campus are
allowed to enter the halls of residence.
2. Students are not to visit any private
house, whether on this side of Montgom-
ery Avenue or not, without special per-
mission from Dean Taft.
3. No meetings, except necessary aca-
demic and religious meetings, shall be
held on the campus.
The Health Department does not con-
sider the influenza epidemic in college as
really serious, but is taking every pos-
sible precaution against its becoming dan-

ciently worried about the influenza situa-

WAR CHEST RECOMMENDED
A recommendation that the college, as
a whole, subscribe to the Five-Counties
| War Chest will be made by the War
Council at the next mass meeting. The
War Chest includes practically all the big
war charities, so that a monthly subscrip-
tion to it obviates frequent collections for
different causes. Subscribers are asked
to give “one day’s pay a month” or one-
thirtieth of their income.
COMPANY CAPTAINS SELECTED
To organize the Physical Development
drills in each hall company commanders
have been appointed by the Athletic and
Conscription Boards: Rockefeller-—R.
Chadbourne ’19 and M. Crile ’21; Pem-
broke West—J. Peabody 719 and H. James
721; Pembroke East—H. Huntting ’19 and
W. Worcester ’21; Denbigh—A. Thorn-
dike 719 and B. Schurman ’21; Merion—
P. France 719 and J. Herrick ’20; Llysy-
fran—M. L. Mall ’20.
A standardized drill will be taught to
the platoon and squad leaders by these
captains. Regular drills, as part of stu-
dents’ required exercise, begin next week.
The graduates are organizing a separate
company. Later in the season competi-
tive drills will probably be held between
the different companies.
SIX WEARERS OF YELLOW
TIES ON THE CAMPUS
Six yellow tie holders and twenty
medal swimmers have returned to col-
lege this year. The wearers of yellow
ties are E. Lanier ’19, M. Tyler 719, A.
Stiles 719, G. Hearne ’19, M. M. Carey ’20,
and B. Weaver ’20.
The first-class swimmers include K.
Townsend ’20, B. Weaver ’20, K. Cauld-
well ’20, E. Cope ’21, E. H. Mills ’21, M.

STOP, LOOK AND CONSIDER
BEFORE YOU THROW AWAY!
SAVE newspapers, tinfoil, magazines,
old clothes, fruit stones, nut shells, type-
writer ribbons and boxes.
GIVE them to the Junk Committee and
they will sort them out and turn them
over to the Red Cross for shipment.
Freshmen collectors will come around
daily in each hall. Don’t be too lazy to
search among your goods and chattels.
The collectors have time to go around to
each room, haven’t you time to reward
their labors and help win the war?
The army of W. A. A. C.’s collects old
clothes, shoes, metal things, etc., from
the battlefields in France. It’s up to you
to form a salvage army in Bryn Mawr.
Last year $12 was made toward support-
ing a girl at St. Hilda’s School in Wu
Chang, China, by the sale of newspapers
collected by the Junk Committee. How
much are you going to make this year?

GERMAN BOOKS, NOW SUPPRESSED,
TRANSLATED BY PROF. FENWICK
A German condemnation of German
militarism, in translation by Professor
Fenwick, has been placed in the New
Book Room. Published by the Carnegie
Endowment for International Peace, “The
Problem of an International Court of Jus-
tice,” by Hans Wehlberg, and Walther
Schiicking’s “International Union of the
Hague Conferences,” both written before
1914, admit the evils of Prussianism.
Since the war the German government
has suppressed both books, it is rumored.
“We owe, most unfortunately, our em-
pire not to peaceful domestic effort, but
to war,” writes Professor Schiicking,
“and militarism is so embedded in our
bones that the peaceful organization of
the civilized world is no longer an ideal
in our eyes.”

tlement at Bombay. Miss Dobson, who is
the daughter of the British poet, Austin
Dobson, and a graduate of London Uni-

“FELLOW WORKERS WITH GOD,”
DR. BARTON’S TEXT
“The world is being made over: God
invites you to be fellow workers with
Him in the new creation,” was the chal-
lenge of Dr. Barton last Sunday in the
first Chapel service of the year.
Dr. Barton indicated in a convincing
way some of the forces of righteousness
now at work. We should not have be-
lieved, four years ago, that the men and
women whom we then knew would have
been capable of the generosity, the hero-
ism, and the Christ-likeness which they
have since shown, he said.

those ideals can best be made to serve

Bryn Mawr. Course
Students Placed During Summer in New
Running a lathe in a factory at 18 cents
an hour was one of the experiences atf-
forded by the new government course in
Industrial Supervision which began at
Bryn Mawr last June. All of the field
work of the course was done in New Eng-
land factories under the direction of Miss
Anna Byzanson, who received weekly re-
ports from the students, held conferences
with them, and arranged visits to various
Living in Llysyfran, twelve students,
ten of whom were on scholarships, began
the course June 17th. The first month
was spent in Bryn Mawr and the remain-
ing two in New England industrial plants.
The course is being given at the request
of the Y. W. C. A. War Council under the
Bryn Mawr Carola Woerishoffer Depart-
ment of Social Research, of which Dr.
Susan M. Kingsbury is head, to train
women to beemployment managers and

Visit Plants Near Philadelphia
Observation trips were made during the
‘month in Bryn Mawr. to establishments
‘in and near Philadelphia where employ-
;ment work was being carried on: among
'them the Eddystone Munitions Plant, the
| Miller Lock Manufacturing Co., the Sutro
Hosiery Co., the General Electric Co., the
| Fayetter R. Plum Co., and the Curtis Pub-
‘lishing Co. Three hours a week were
given to industrial observation, four to
statistics, and six to laboratory problems.
Going to Boston, July 12th, the students
were assigned by Miss Byzanson to vari-
ous manufacturing plants, where they
would gain practical experience in actual
manufacturing, in employment work, and
in scientific management. They were in-
troduced by the War Department and

Trims Leather in Shoe Factory
One student worked for three weeks in
the stitching room of the McElwain Shoe
Co., Manchester, as an “around-the-room
girl.” - Another was in the cutting room
of the same plant, trimming leather. Of
the others, four were with the U. S. Car-
tridge Co., three in the Winchester Re-
peating Arms Co., New Haven; three in
the General Electric Co., Lynn; two in
the Dennison Manufacturing Co., Fra-
mingham; one in the Lewis Manufaciur-
ing Co., Walpole, Mass., a plant under
scientific management manufacturing
gauze and bandages; one in the Scovil
Manufacturing Co., Waterbury; one in
the Slatersville Finishing Co.; one in the
Cheney Silk Mills, South Manchester, and
one in the Hood Rubber Co., Watertown.
Other firms visited were the Norton
Grinding Wheel Co., the Plant Shoe Co.,
the New England Confectionery Co., and
the Colts Patent Arms.
The college, in making the first public
statement of the manufactories in which
the students worked, wishes to give ree-
ognition to these manufacturers who so
courteously and coGdperatively offered the
opportunity to students of the college for
training in their plant. Without excep-
tion the firms placed the students in posi-
tions where they could get the best train-
ing. The result proves that college
women can, under careful supervision,
work in factories side by side with other
employees without either their fellow
workers or the foreman realizing that
they are not regular employees. The col-
lege women proved so efficient that ob-
jections were made by the foremen when
they were transferred to other depart-

the various establishments in and near
Philadelphia, each siudent concentrating
on one or two establishments.
A second group of ten students has en-
tered college and will pursue much the
same work as the first group, going into
field work during the second semester.

world in which special privilege will have
disappeared, in which people will stand
or fall on their own merits, in which
everyone, women as well as men, will
have’a job to do, a world of friendliness
and brotherhood. The West shows us a
little of what is coming in the new world,
what ‘those of us who are older have
missed’ in the old world, and what you
will have. In this new socialized worid
that iS coming I can think of nothing
more needed than wise intelligent trained
leadership. Your generation must supply
this. You must save art, letters, learn-
ing and research. You must see to it
that ability not mediocrity is in the sad-
dle, that the great mass of the people are
levelled up and levelled down. Leaders
are desperately needed, and where can
your generation look for leaders if not to

Women Must Draft Themselves
“Your brothers are, or will soon be, at
the front, fighting the powers of medizval
darkness and oppression. Those who are
not yet at the front are required to give
up liberal studies and take military and
technical training in all the-colleges of
the United States. They have taken the
oath as soldiers and are already in mili-
tary service. They are under the student
military discipline; not permitted to leave
the campus, required to live in common,
give up secret societies, competitive ath-
letics'and many things dear to the heart
of college boys, and in a few months they
will be drafted into officers’ training
camps. Their country requires their ut-
most service and they give it with joy and
pride. You are-not'so fortunate as they.
You are not called with such a clarion
voice to serve your country, but your-duty
is just as clear. It is just as clearly your
duty at a time like this to give up many
of the amusements and side shows of or-
dinary college life, like your brothers, and
devote yourselves as strenuously as they
to your work. I wish that it had been
possible for the Government to draft the
women in our colleges into a vast student
army and put them under military oath to
study their hardest and best. You must
draft yourselves. If the war continues,
remember that the girls now in college
who study faithfully and well will be the
most highly educated intellectual leaders
of their generation. The boys who come
back will have had other kinds of train-
ing, but they will have missed forever the
vision and insight and power that come,
I believe}! only by ‘faithful intellectual

Wilson’s Address a Summons to Women
“In the President’s address to the Sen-
ate on woman suffrage on Monday, Sep-
tember 30th, you have received your call
t6 Service. Nothing that President Wil-
son has done or said has become him
more than this great address. In eleva-
tion of sentiment and language, vision
and sympathy, it is second to none of his
great speeches, not even his Fourth Lib-
.|erty Loan address in New York outlining
the terms of a just peacé and calling for
a league of nations to be organized at
the end of the war. I can do nothing bet-
ter than to close by reading you the most
thrilling parts of this splendid tribute to
the work done by women in the war and
to the work only they can do after the
war. It is a summons to all women to
dedicate themselves afresh. It is a call
to the highest kind of service you are
capable of. It isa task to which you are
called by the President of your country
who has already summoned your brothers
to fight. It is a call to which you can
respond with joy and pride. It is a task
which needs the profoundest preparation
through study and thought. We ask you
to give yourselves to this preparation
