PARKES NBA Service StaB Cormpondenl NEW YORK.—Twenty-five years ago an American woman, returning from England, debarked from tho S. S. Arcadian, burning with an Idea. On March 12 of this year nearly 400,000 members of Ihc Girl Scouts will commence an eight- month celebration of the fruition 3f that idea. Trie woman was Mrs, Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the Girl 3couts In America. Born In Sa t yannah, Ga., during the troublous times of the Civil War, she had carried, an Englishman and gone •a live in his native land. There she became acquainted with Sir 3/obert Baden-Powell and his sis- Ijfa. They discussed Ills plans for (".'« Boy Scout-movement and Mrs. Gow's imagination was fired with Jie possibility of organizing a sim- lar project for girls. . ; , Her first effort al "Girl Guid- ng," as the English called It, was imong tlie girls of Glen Lyon, Perthshire, where her husband hail i shooting lodge. The program In- :luded chicken raising and weaving 'he wool sheared from their par- mis' sheep. Other brief experienc-, ;s with girls in London and. Lam- xth increased her eagerness to jresent : the gift of scouting to 1 American, girls, and she lost no • Jme in returning to Savannah. [ - * * • • Turned PaHy Inlo First Troop Commandeering the unehthusias- •ic aid of several somewhat bewild- ;red friends, she gave a tea-party -for 12 girls, and by the time the ?arty was over, .those girls were l; :he first Girl Scout troop in America , It is because Mrs. Low was the (ind of woman she was that when Girl Scouts Cclelwate Silver Jubilee i^^K^rpp^ < C ~>^iJMiJteA^, Vrl'IX \ \ i*>\y* . >..! by Mrs.- Mary Rldgley Ihal Mr, and Mrs. J.

Woman's Club Elect Officers. At the annual meeting. of the Woman's club, at the home of Mrs. IJoscce Pierce Tuesday after- ,'ioon, tlie following officers for the club year were elected: Mrs. A. L. Freytag, president; Mrs. S. Z. Orgel. vice-president; Mrs. Roscoe Pierce, secretary; Mrs, A. B. Rhodes, treasurer, and Mrs. Morrell DeReign, corresponding secretary. A committee was appointed to! tevise the constitution and -by-1 laws of the club. Other committees were also appointed to formulate plans for the year's work. Tlie meeting days of the club have been chained to the second tnd fourth Tuesday afternoons of °ach month, with the . next to be held at the home of• Mrs.'.Orgel 'on March 23. will visit in Florida first of April. Mrs. Arline Reams and babj of Cape . airardeau are visiting in the home of Mr. and Mis Clayton Schultz. Mrs. Laura 1 Askew, who lias been visiting her daughter, Mrs Al'lie Durham, in El Paso, Texas for the "past month, has returned to her home here. ' She was accompanied home by hei- grand daughter, Dorothy. lee of the organization.

Y. The climax of the jubilee | celebration will be a national convention at Savannah, Ga., the. I birthplace, of Girl Scouting. . '* . * • .Handicapped by Ill-Health .Mrs. Low would seem lo be the i last person • on earth to undertake the foundation of a great national movement/—and what is more, practically Single-handed • carry, it through the early days of confusion, and struggle. Fifty-two years old when she 'brought-.the-idea back from Bng-1 j w '•land, .'in Ill-health, handicapped by rd ~ T ' 'deafness, .with no iota of expert ' ence In organizing, Igiorant of of: flee routine and completely help- financial matters, she had ('nothing but an indomitable will, a 1 complete blindness to obstacles and a fervent faith in the worth of her Idea. She turned her deafness into an asset by using, it to ignore refusals of .co-operation. Never a wealthy woman, she financed the movement in-its cradle days and when funds i low, she sold her personal pos- _Bions. Her checkbook was ever a "puzzle to her and bills payable were filed in .four bundles, marked "This Year," "Next Year," "Some| time" and "Never." When the early committees of the Girl Scouts i struck a snag, her invariable solution was "Let's put it up to the girls." If the girls liked it, it wa.- right. If not. out with it! Juliette .Low's great dream was of goodwill between the world's races, with Girl Scouting as the ! medium. She considered Scouting I as a game whose rules are: "To play 1 fair. To play in your place. To plaj for your side and not yourself.' Mrs/Low died in 1927, aclive al! inost to tbe day of her death . And because the Girl Scouls'rec- ognlzc that they owe their very | being to Mrs. Low's devotion to ai i idea, and the continued growth o the organization to her unbounded generosity of time, energy and money! the Silver Jubilee will be j as much a testimonial to the care fill stewardship of her Ideals a: It will be a celebration of the material well-being of the movement Mrs. Amos Recker entertained 'he West Side Bridee club Tues•lay afternoon -at her home on West Sixth street.
