SHARING Safeertftfelb Calif orttfan Wednesday, September 20,1944 By MAE The Italian Federation of Univer- Ity Women has risen from Its underground existence under Fascism and has been revived m Rcme, according to a news item published recently in the new Rome weekly, II Partlgiano. News of the revival of the Italian women's organization came through the International Federation of University Women In London. The Italian Federation was suppressed by the Fascist order in 1935, but it was continued as an underground movement under the name of Biblloteca Isabella Grass!. Records at the A. A. U. W. headquarters showed that Isabella Urassi was the president of the Italian organization at the time it was suppressed. The president managed to keep the membership in touch with each other by operating a "library" under her own name. But Italian women.were not able to communicate with the women of other countries for nine years of Fascism. Women can realize their importance and influence when Fascist forces attempt to suppress them with the slogan that women's place is solely in the home and the rear- My Motfier and Saturday Nights made me what I am today... I T'S A DAMP WORLD as far as Slim Davis is concerned. Although Slim claims his mother is the cause of it all... by making him soap not once, but thrice, each Saturday night ...the fact, is Slim is a very patient — painstaking man. So a'Gilmore Independent Dealer has him washing cars. Nothing else. And Slim, through the years, has become just about the best car-washing specialist on the continent- according to his boss. Try getting all of your car service fromaGilmore Dealer'll be surprised how an experienced man really knows how to make your car look better, run better, last longer. N I Y BY INUl INDENT OiAIF SAUNDEUS ing of children for a war machine. Is the woman's sole concern. Women the world over revolt at this idea. Women are beginning to see clearly their roles are more than serving as the mothers of the race, but that they must be the thinking mothers of the race, also. Women will Tie glad to welcome the Italian women back into the confraternity of free women. European women, as thinking mothers and as citizens, formed the biggest underground movement in the cause of justice and liberty that the race has known. What women taught their children in secret during these years is more important than the arms of the Allies that liberated them. Free thought must ultimately result in freedom of action and women intelligently informed are the greatest teachers of the race. Nor do university women take ajl the credit for the intellectual underground of Europe, but they are proud of the leadership their women gave and are giving to the movement. American university women's leadership has counted and will continue to count with the women of Europe what women do here will be watched by liberated women of Europe. Bakersfield Branch of American University Women is fulfilling a fine community responsibility in sponsoring here the "American Postwar Adjustment Forum" with three informed and brilliant speakers in the field of international relations, labor and industry, and population trends. Offered on September 28 -at the Washington School auditorium, this forum will bring to local hearers important considerations of questions of the day. The forum is open to both men and women. University women have a belief in education and this is one method of expressing that belief by offering diversified views on subjects of interest to everyone. Open questions will be Invited at the forum. Proceeds will be used by the club for its war work and for the education program of the club that supports adult education in its own groups. It is more Important for women's groups to sponsor public dibcussions than to sponsor parties.
