SIX MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE FEBRUARY 8 1934' MANY HEAR MRS. W. W. REMINGTON TALK ON RECOVERY Depressions ; of Past in Discussion Speaker Praises Ability of , Frances Perkins of Cabinet. Nearly 600 members of the Wo- »an's club " current events department and their guests assembled in the Y. W. C. A. gymnasium Wednesday afternoon for a talk by Mrs. W. W. Remington of Minneapolis who spoke on the economics of the recovery program and gave a review of Mordaunt Shairp's play, "The Green Bay Tree," drawing an analogy between the struggle represented in the drama and the struggle in world today. Recommending "The Economics of the Recovery Program," a compilation of the opinions of several Harvard professors on* the causes and cure of the depression, Mrs. Remington pointed out that there must not be an increase of the cost of production before the return of the purchasing power, nor will 'a cut in production be of lasting benefit to the farmers, but rather an increase of consumption to meet pro- Central Association Plans Opening of New Night Club at School The opening of a new night club is announced by the Central Parent-Teacher association for its pay night program Friday evening at the Central school. The regular lea-' turs of a night club will be carried on from the cover charge on up. There will be dancing, an amusement room, refreshments and a wide variety of entertainment. duction. Past Depressions. The speaker discussed past depressions and of . the methods through which they were gradually defeated. "Juggling money and credit is no way to bring back prosperity," she said. Mrs. Remington spoke of an address given by Francis Perkins, sec' retary of labor, which she heard in Chicago. She traced Miss Perkins' public career and said .that "it will ·fae an everlasting credit to president Roosevelt that he placed Francis Perkins in his cabinet." She quoted Miss Perkins in saying that we cannot boast of our civilization until we raise the standard of living of more than 9,000,000 persons, provide workers' compensation, old age pensions and a living wage. "No recovery legislation will help the present situation without the co-operation of the people," Mrs. Remington said. "Too much should not be expected from anything. No one knows, better than the president the mistakes that have been made. The government cannot have its eye everywhere and the responsibility rests on the individual. Judicial Deliberation. "President Roosevelt has asked the support not only of the legislative, but -judicial bodies of the United States. Asking the support of; the -judicial division of the gov- ----^mment^Is ,vunprecedented move, iince'the courts have always been considered apart, and the supreme court particularly." . Mrs. Remington spoke of the dramatic nature of the Minnesota Mortgage Moratorium decision in which Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes cast the deciding vote in favor of the common good as opposed to individual interests. In discussion the criticisms which have been made of the CWA, Mrs. Remington said that it is an easy thing to put four million men on the payroll, but it is difficult to take them off. She pointed out that the CWA may become a great burden. Recent War Scare. Mrs. Remington touched briefly on the recent war scare in Japan and' said that war scares are the creation of munition makers who profit on dead generations and draw no patriotic line. "The time will come, however, when Japan will have to choose between revolt at home or war abroad," she said. "We are at the dividing line of civilization," Mrs. Remington said. "The question of moral significance, rather than material. If the whole people could have been trained 'to think in 1920 that we would be better off for cancelling debts that n_v T er can be paid, much trouble would have been avoided." In concluding, Mrs. Remington reviewed "The Green Bay Tree," a recent drama which concerns the struggle of a young man, Julian, to renounce the wealth which has foster father, Dulcimer, has given him, for the love of Leonora and his own father, both poor working people. Julian's father kills Dulcimer in an effort to save his son, but Julian has become so enslaved to material things, that he cannot make UIB effort to leave the comfort of money for the happiness of love.

He did not consider his presidency, his work as a diplomat, his founding of a great political party, his part in framing the constitution of the United States, or his purchase from France of the vast territory of Louisiana--on which occasion he commented that he had stretched'the 'constitution so far that it cracked--· worthy of being remembered with .the accomplishments he had named. Miss Bullock discussed Jefferson's private life, hla public policies, and his political relationships aud their effect upon the country as revealed through the advancing years by modern histories Country's Welfare. "Jefferson, a native of Virginia, the most aristocratic of the colonies, became the founder of democracy; born on a vast estate the labor o£ which was performed by many .slaves, he became a rabid anti-slavery patisan; citizen oC a state la which only the children of the well-to-do were educated by tutors and governesses and in private schools, he became champion of the common school. At all times Jefferson put the welfare of the country ahead of his own narrow ideas," Miss Bullock said. An interesting phase of the lesson was the contrast brought out between Hamilton and Jefferson. Jefferson was a descendant of the Ran- olphs and traced hia ancestry back It makes a charming blouse and an equally'attractive skirt. It's a slimming affair with its wrapped effect blouse and front panelled skirt.

Also such a blouse as this is extremely useful, as it can also be worn with a suit skirt. All in the same material, the rig can be carried out in bottle green velveteen or crepe silk.
