The same Is given below: In the following- statement of principles which govern the proposed organisation of Sioux Falls housewives In their plan to lower the high cost of living through concerted action, ' me committee of the league contribute an explanation of thetr attitude: The Housewives' league committee, feeling that the meeting Tuesday evening aroused the interest of all those present, wish to lay a few suggestions before the women of Sioux Falls, especially those not present at this meeting. Each organization has its own problem to solve and the following questions may be suggestive: Are you satisfied with the present market conditions? Are the marketing facilities such as to bring the producer in closer touch with the consumer? Are the sanitary conditions of your shops and grocery stores satisfactory? Have you a commission on weights and measures and are the laws regarding same enforced? Are the tradesmen dealing with you airly In regard to prices; as to weight; as to quality? Are you considering .that demands for several deliveries daily, increase prices? How many pounds of potatoes and apples should you get for a peck? How many do you get? How many housewives have kitchen scales and use them? The Housewives' league platform: To organize the housewives of America for educational, constructive and defensive work for the home. To de:-mand and obtain fair prices for all commodities. To bring together the producer and consumer with this object in view: To demand and obtain clean shops. To demand and obtain pure products of all kinds, products which shall be what they are represented to be. In short, to Work for honesty, quality, efficiency and a square deal for all. Now do the women of Sioux Falls want such an organization? It is only by concerted action we can get results. Every woman, in the city will be given a chance to ally herself with this work; the dues are very light, perhaps 15 or 20 cents a year. The league button has been registered as a trade mark and is worn by thousands of housewives all over the land. It is a sifa-niticant fact that in pluces where the league is organized, the housewives get a square deal, and why not? Every merchant realizes that the women spend t0 per cent of the money spent in our country. They have the power of the dollar back of them and why not use this power for the betterment of the homes in which are being reared the future citizens of the nation. Now is the time to act and how many women will rally to the support of this movement? Phone to Mrs. D. E. A. Lundquist, Mrs. M. Scott Mrs. M. H. Egan, or Mrs. Mabel Dockstader. - , The evening program on Thursday, given at 'All Saints school tn order to introduce Mr. 'IV Austin -Ball, the vocal teacher, was opened by Mr. Gray Tis-ale, who charmed the audience by his sympathetic playing of two solos.
