Influence of Women Discussed Exclaiming at the magnitude of tier topic, "The Status of Women in Europe," Lepa Sandra, a native of Yugoslavia, who is .consultant to the decorating studio of Daytons, talked to the Mason City Business and Professional Women's Club Thursday evening at the YWCA. Pointing out that women arc influential in the fields of politics, economics and society, Miss Sandra said that in some countries women do not have the right to vote and do not want it because they can accomplish more indirectly. She spoke of Queen Marie of Romania who was able to charm a large lo'an from the United States as an example of what can be done by the indirect method. Abilities of Queen Elizabeth of England, Madam Chiang Kai-shek and Madam Pandit were remarked by the speaker as further examples of women who have become powers in politics. Economic Field Actually women of Europe do as much in the economic field as the women of the "United States, according to the speaker, who said that what the European women do is not recognized as such, but their economic contribution is in weaving cloth to make clothes for their families and in growing and preserving food. Miss Sandra commented on the importance of women in the economic field in the United Slates and said that the American women are the most demanding women in the world. Their men work too hard and die young, leaving large amounts of insurance for their widows. As a result, American women control 79 per cent of the country's wealth. Philanthropic work of women in society is notable, according to the speaker. Women and Oxen "In Bulgaria the two most important economic items are a and an ox--Kemal Pasha changed Turkey overnight by open- rig the harems and educating vomen -- everyone admires Eng- and--the Spanish woman is full of romance and if you want to lire ind stop rushing around, go to Spain---Austria is the saddest coun- ry of any--today a Russian woman s a laborer and a forced laborer-here is a certain stability about lerman women, they, are wonder- !ul in a home--Italy "is my pet country--in Poland every second .voman .was a countess--" these were some of Miss Sandra's comments as she flitted across the con- :inent of Europe. Miss Sandra spoke of her own Dackground which has an international flavor and said that in lurope international marriages gave people of that continent an opportunity to know each other.
