6RETCHEN STEINER TO SPEAK BEFORE WOMAN'S CLUB | Lecturer Is Experienced in Dramatics February General Meeting to Be Tuesday at 2:30 O'Clock. The vastly changing form and scope of the modern theater with its talking pictures, its rapidly growing .little theaters, the plays of clubs and schools, and the legitimate playhouses, have brot the drama into closer touch with more people than at any time in recent history, in the opinion of Miss Gretchen Steiner of Grlnnell college who will speak to the Woman's club -here Tuesday at 2:15 o'clock in the First Methodist church. ,Miss Steiner, daughter of Dr. Ed- .w'ard A. Steiner, author,and lecturer, and the head of the department of Applied Christianity, at-Grinnell, is exceptionally well fitted to discuss the many, phases of the modern theater and during the past year in her work as associate of the department of public relations, she spoke to several thousand persona !f various schools, civic and women's clubs and little theater' organizations thruout Iowa, Illinois, South Dakota, Minnesota, and Ne- .braska. Her talks include .discussions of the art of the theater, the modern drama, and the problems- connected with play production, the organization of little theater groups, the designing of costumes and scenery. Her experience and training give . her a knowledge of the theatex from the standpoint of the student, the actor, and the director. She studied in the School of the Theater of Mme. Yvette Guilbert, tha famous French diseuse; at tho University' of Wisconsin with Irving Pitchell of California; and recently wtib. Prof. George Pierce Batter in the 47 Workshop at Yale university. Miss Steiner has also done special work on the training of the speaking voice with Miss Katherine Jewell Everts, and in the writing- field at Columbia university. She served as instructor in public speaking and dramatic production, .at DePauw university, was assistant professor in the same subjects at Vassar college, and this year was 1 a faculty member of the Grinnell college summer session. Miss Steiner's professional stage connections include engagements in productions of the theater guild in New York City and with Otis Skinner. She has been director of the Community theater in Poughkeepsie, W. Y., and the Players of Ni' agara, of Niagara Falls, N- Y; improvident. She should, of course, try to get another job and take a couple of rooms by herself. That is the only right way possible to bring this about. It is not easy, however, to get jobs now; even if one is young and strong, and she can't be very young. ' --·:·-- . CELEBRATE BIRTHDAY Mr. and Mrs. F. M.

Family quarrels are most bitter and devastating. And the especial relation of In-law-which is only created by marriage-- i3 even more bitter.than between blood relations. V The mother-in-law problem bobs up in this column ever so often. What to advise when it seems as if the daughter-in-law or son-in-law and mother have to live together is a question. You can't just hurl your mother-in-law out into the street to starve, no matter how disagreeable she is. And you can't force other people to take her into their homes. And you can't make her over so that she can be independent. * # * "DEAR MISS LEE: I dearly Jove my husband. There is not a thing I know of thatvl would not do for him. We never had any, children, so it is just he and I in our little home. He has had other women, but I was never jealous. I always knew he would come hack, and he did. "But now it is different. I feel as . tho I am heading straight for a separation if I am compelled to do what has been talked over between my husband an^ his mother. "About 10 years ago my husband's father died. His mother finally got a job, but lost it last May. She has been living beyond her means and now her money is just about all gone, lly husband told me they have been talking about us get- ing a larger house (when we can't afford the rent), and letting her have two rooms to fit up for herself. I was not in on their arrangement. She and I dbn't even speak. She is so jealous of Jack and me that she is worse than mean to me. "She has a wealthy retired brother but he won't help her, neither will her well-to-do sister, and Jack and I have to watch our P's and Q's to make ends meet at all. Please advise, "GOLDIE C." In the first place it was absolutely wrong of your husband to plan any change in your home without consulting you. I suppose both he and- his mother were'afraid of what you would say, so they thot it better to"'"keep it dark" There is no use scolding about it, but you will be perfectly within your rights to insist, gently, but firmly, that it is your right to help plan anything which so affects you. Of course you must face the fact that your husband is responsible for the support of his mother. Brothers and sisters do not have to provide for her as long as she has a son to look after her welfare. You can't let her starve, even if she has been m In Newest Serpentine Front Design! 100% ANGORA MOHAIR LIVING ROOM SUITE Greatest FURNITUR This is the sale hundreds of shrewd shoppers eagerly await each year, knowing the sort of savings this event brings!
