Vernon, have returned from Jacksonville where they represented Jefferson county women at the 14th annual Citizen and Organization Conference of tlie Illinois Home Bureau Federation, held on the campus at MacMurray College, last week. The 226 conference delegates in attendance represented over 52,000 Illinois homemakers whose influence reached into the world because the Federation is a subsidiary of the National Home Demonstration Council, the Associated Women of the American Farm Bureau Federation, and the Associated Country Women of the World. Tlie theme of the conference was 'The home should be the center of every woman 's interest but no. the circumference." Miss Margrieta Osis, a University of Illinois student, formerly of Latvia, spoke on "What it moans to be a displaced person."

She was placed in a Displaced Persons camp for four years until she received a World Service scholarship and came to the University of Illinois, with no funds of her own, to attend school. The speaker, who had been active in 4-H cJub work in her homeland, when asked to compare American with European youth, said the former are too much absorbed ii. trivial matters and should concern themselves more with the problems which are troubling mankind. Mrs. Olive Remington Goldman, U. S. Delegate, Commission for the status of women, United Nations, analyzed the accomplishments of the commission and observed that the delegates from free nations in the organization are "Answering Soviet attacks upon us with vigor. We are pointing out the tyranny and hardships which their people suffer. Surely, courage is paying off in the U N. a? the frre world gains in strength and unity." "Diplomacy,' she saiu, "is like a housewife's job, it is never done." She concluded her address with the challenge, "we women will have to work for peace. We must educate our families to resisit aggression. The government is upon our shoulders." Other speakers at the conference included Prof. John Klassen, Blufton College, Ohio, who discussed "Handcraft, an expression of personality"; Vernon L. Nickell, state superintendent of public instruction, and Claude E. Vick, Illinois Education Association, "who discussed "Our school program and what remains to be done"; agricultural economist, L. R. Simerl, University of Illinois, told about "your family and inflation"; and Cullen B.

White rayon crepe (right) with gold print makes cuff-topped slip that can serve as blouse, or team with a duster. kjEW YORK—(NEA)—The summer slip that's designed ^ to double as a dress is, to the woman on a budget, the biggest thing since the day of free dishes at the neighborhood movie. Not only can these slips be worn as dresses, they can also do duty as summer blouses. They can combine with plain sheaths and GIRL SCOUT NEWS Seventy-nine third-grade Brownie Scouts worked and played during day camp last week at the Girl Scout Little House. Wednesday evening, fathers were guests at a wiener roast. Following the campfire the girls, attired in gaily colored gypsy dress, presented a short program of songs, games and a gypsy dance which was concluded with a flag ceremony and the singing of taps. Leaders of the five units and their assistants for the four-day camp were: Mary Martin, Jo DeWitt, Mary Margaret Rawlinson, Virginia Buskool, Irene Rough, Irene Lynn, Thelma Kincaid, Wilma Cooper, Maxine Overby, and brief jackets to make up an ensemble. Of course, all of this does raise the question: Is she wearing a slip under her slip? If so, which kind? Could it, too, double as a dress? Lest the whole thing become too complicated, let's make it clear right now that the womaui who buys a slip-dress (or a dress-slip) is on her own. She may invent or camouflage, but there are no specific instructions from the designers; Black rayon taffeta enlivened by bright red jacquard polka dots, Vlasta King.
