EIGHT MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 23 1936 GENERAL FEDERATION OF WOMAN'S CLUBS BEGINS DRIVE Education for Adults Is Purpose Chairman Advises Holding Forums on Controversial Issues of Day. WASHINGTON, D. C., Jan. 11-"Nationwide education of adults will raise the standard of citizenship to a pinnacle never yet experienced," declares Mrs. John Y. Whitehurst, chairman of the department of education of the General Federation of Women's clubs, who is initiating through her department a vigorous drive to lift the educational standards of adults, both native and foreign born. "Of the 75,000,000 adults in this country over 21 years of age, 64,000,000 have not finished high school and 32,000,000 have not finished the eighth grade of the common school," Mrs. Whitehurst points out. Of several mediums for adult education, she lays particular stress on the Forum, an institution becoming increasingly popular in American communities. "Hold institutes on controversial issues of the day," Mrs. Whitehurst urges clubs. "Always have speakers for and against each subject, and permit liberal opportunity for persons to speak from the floor. Seek the co-operation of school authorities to hold forums each week in school buildings in every community so that men and women can learn more about public affairs and government. Co-operate with United State Commissioner of Education John W. Studebaker, in his effort to make the American people forum- conscious." Systematic educational courses over the radio, evening classes in schools, and public libraries are other mediums which Mrs. Whitehurst pproposes that club women utilize for adult education. She also suggests co-operation with educational agencies interested in adult education, co-operation with educational agencies interested in adult education, co-operation with educational advisers in CCC camps, an ed- ucatnonal program for leisure time, and vocational training. A program for making the fullest possible use of these means to adult education has been outlined by Mrs. Whitehurst. In the case of education of the adult foreign born, she urges co-operation with'the naturalization service, in Washington, provision of educational facilities in each com- WIFE PRESERVERS Says Mrs. Helmer Rierson: To keep starched dresser scarfs from being crushed or rumpled, roll an old magazine up and tie it with a cord, then roll the dresser scarl around it. munity, and encouragement of university extension officials to give courses in citizenship. .*. Earl Burnham Weds Wilma Thompson at Los Angeles Home FOREST CITY, Jan. 23.--Word has been received by Atty. B. J. Thompson of the marriage of his daughter, Wilma, to Earl Burnham of Los Angeles. Mrs. Thompson and daughter, Janice, are spending a few weeks in Los Angeles and the wedding was not expected to take place until later, but was hastened on account of the serious illness of the bride's grandmother, with whom she has been living. Mr. and Mrs. Burnham will make their home in Los Angeles where Mr. Burnham operates a furniture factory. He is a nephew of Mr. and Mrs. George Hormel of Austin, Minn. --*-Bachelor Wants Leap Year to Be Extended WILLIAMSBURG, Jan. 23. UP)-State Representative J. P. Gallagher of Williamsburg, a veteran editor-legislator and regarded by his friends as one of Iowa's most eligible bachelors, has this pithy comment anent leap year:-- "Leap year is all right, only there should be one hundred of them in each century." Once during the peak of the suffrage campaign he observed:-"Millions of women, wouldn't take the ballot if it was offered, but they would take a husband if they could get one.' THORA'S MOTHER WAS IRISH --That Was Enough for Katie Colleges Agree to Co-Operate in New Project By GARRY C. MYERS, PH. D. Child Training Authority. Parents, as well as educators, are following with keen interest an elaborate enterprise now being conducted in relation to college entrance. Progressive education began in the elementary grades. But children trained in "progressive" elemeni- ary schools had a hard time to fit into the regular high school. So a number of "progressive" private high schools grew up. Today some elementary and secondary high schools can claim to be more "progressive" than a number of the widely adver- tized "progressive" private schools. But when graduates · from the "progressive" high schools, especially from the private ones, attempted to enter college, they, in many instances, had- trouble to get in, or more trouble after they had entered. Tower Hill School. Therefore, Mr. Burton Fowler, headmaster of Tower Hill school, while president of the Progressive Education association, appointed, in 1930, a commission on the Relation of School and College, an imposing group of educators. You will find a report of this enterprise and a list of the members of the commission and of the schools co-operating, by Wilford M. Aiken, its chairman, in the November issue of Progressive Education. · "The commission undertook two tasks . . . to study the changes which seemed to be most needed .. . to try to develop a plan of co-operation with the colleges that would appeal to them . . . Nearly three hundred colleges and universities approved the proposal and gave assurance of co-operation. Secondary Schools. "The plan provides that a small group of secondary schools be set free by the colleges to engage in experimental study of the work of the secondary school, and the colleges agree to accept students from these schools for a period of five years, beginning in 1936, without regard to the course and unit requirements now gneerally in force for all students, and without requiring the usual entrance examinations. Selection of candidates from these schools will be based, instead, upon the recommendations of the high school principals, and a carefully recorded history of each student's school life and of his activities and interests, as well as the results of various types of examinations and tests, and other evidence of the quality and quantity of the candidate's work. . . . "In general, the aim of the experiment has been to make the work of the secondary schools and colleges more meaningful to the students; to help them engage in long-distance planning, and in developing a pattern for their schooling, reaching across the gap now existing- between school and college; to discover and foster the unique quality of each [CHAPPED SKIN To quickly relieve //chapping and rouihneS8,U I apply soothing, V cooling Menrttolatum.'

Unit Works for Welfare of Orphans American Legion Auxiliary's Prograr" ^rlud^s Care of Children. Children must not be forced to pay the price of a war fought before they were born. This is the determination of the American Legion auxiliary in its activities for the fatherless children of World war veterans, according to Mrs. Edgar Toinby, chairman of the child welfare committee of the Clausen Worden unit of the auxiliary. Vast work is carried out by the auxiliary each year to prevetit children, who have lost a father's support through the war, from suffering because of their fathers' patriotic sacrifices. In close co-operation with the American Legion, the women of the auxiliary endeavor t o bring to these children the normal advantages and opportunities enjoyed by American children. The local committee, under Mrs. Toinby's direction, is busy constantly in activities for the welfare of needy children of veterans in Mason City. Fatherless Children. With World war veterans now dying at the rate of 80 a day, the number of fatherless children of veterans needing auxiliary aid is increasing steadily, explained Mrs. Toinby. The American Legion and auxiliary endeavor to bring these children the help necessary to maintain them in a home of their own with the surviving parent or close relative. Only when this is impossible is institutional care sought. In addition to making sure that fatherless children of veterans have the necessities of life, the auxiliary works to bring them the normal advantage they might have enjoyed had their fathers not been sacrificed for the country. Extension of federal compensation to war orphans desiring to remain in school beyond the age of 18 has been obtained and supplemented by state educational aid in 35 states. In addition hundreds of scholarships have been made available to children of veterans in colleges, universities and technical schools. Brings Aid to AIL The auxiliary's child welfare work is not confined to children of veterans but reaches out to include all children in need. Co-operation is given to all movements for improvement of conditions for children being denied the advantages of American childhood, and many projects are undertaken in the child health, educational and recreational fields. The auxiliary has been organizing; for its 1936 program by re- enrolling its members for the new year and strengthening its ranks with new members. All wives, mothers, sisters and daughters of men who served in the World war have been invited to become members at this time. Mrs. Toinby said. _*_ O. X. O. CLUB MEETS WITH MRS. NAGEL O. N.

Carson Grant Wood Goes Milking to Get His Best Ideas NEW YORK, Jan. 23. /R--Grant Wood, whose paintings of Iowa farm scenes have made him a leader of a 'regional" school of art, casually discloses that "all the really goofl ideas I'd ever had came to me while I was milking a cow." Wood, departing for his home in Iowa City last night, said that he aoped to discourage imitators. He recalled meeting a group of French artists who believed a painter should wait for "inspiration." "It was then I realized," he said, "that all the really good ideas I'd ever had come to me while I was milking a cow." His style of art was started as a "revolt" against abstract painting, be said, "and I never paint 'typical' scenes because I would have to leave out all the interesting, individual details." Wood recalled that he once lived in Paris, "grew a very spectacular beard that didn't match my face and was convinced the middlewest was uninhabited and barren." "But I came back," he said, "because I learned that French painting is very fine for the French people and not necessarily for us, and because I started out to analyze what it was I really knew." 'I found out--it was Iowa."

Or the center may be filled with chopped nuts or fruit like dates or prunes. Today's Recipes. Romance Parfait--Scald three cups rich milk and add three-fourths cup rice. Cook hi double boiler until milk is absorbed, stirring only occasionally. Add three-fourths cup white corn syrup, two squares cooking chocolate (melted), one-half teaspoon salt and one teaspoon vanilla. Pour into individual glasses and chill. Serve garnished with whipped cream and grated chocolate. Saving Space One very good way to save space in the refrigerator is to clean and prepare for use any vegetables, such as lettuce, endive, radishes, carrots, etc., and place them in the cellophane bags that so much bread comes in nowadays. Twist the top lightly and the moisture will be kept in and the bag can be placed anywhere on the shelves as well as in the vegetable pan. Hot Sliced Chicken Sandwich- Twelve slices of soft bread, butter, sliced chicken, salt, two tablespoons butter, four tablespoons flour, one and one-half cups chicken broth, one cup irradiated evaporated milk, parsley. Butter slices of bread generously. Cover half the slices with roast or stewed sliced chicken. Sprinkle with salt. Top with remaining bread slices. Cut in two diagonally and place on individual hot serving plates. Prepare a gravy of the butter, flour, broth and milk. Season to taste. Pour a generous portion diagonally across sandwich so as not to completely cover the sandwich. Garnish with sprig of parsley. Serves six. Jellied Bananas-- One-half teaspoon gelatin, one-fourth cup cold water, one-half cup boiling water, one-fourth cup sugar, two tablespoons lemon juice, six bananas. Soften the gelatin in the cold water, add the boiling water, sugar and lemon juice. Allow to cool but not to harden. Scoop out a small trough from the top of each banana, and dip one at a time in the gelatin. Just before serving, fill the top with tnarshmallow creme or chilled custard and spoon over a generous amount of strawberry preserves or softened red jelly. Garnish the top with halves of walnuts or pecans. No More Bingo For Rock Island Women; Mayor's Agin' It ROCK ISLAND, 111., Jan. 23. (UP) --Bingo playing ladies found their favorite pastime prohibited Thursday as Mayor John A. Bengston announced plans to "clean up" Rock Island. Bengston said he would consolidate all law-enforcement groups in Rock Island in an effort to cleanse the city of gambling. According to his view, bingo is gambling. Charges have been hurled back and forth in Rock Island that open and notorious gambling is permitted. Several tavern owners said that Robert Crowe assured them they would be protected if they placed "barrels of fun," in their establishments. Crowe allegedly passed out cards, which the tavern owners were supposed to present in case they ever were threatened with arrest. Mayor Bengston said he never had heard of Crowe, and ordered raids on devices allegedly controlled by Crowe. .;. Brown Creeper Visits Tropics in Zero Weather Magic carpets would have been busy whisking everyone to the tropics yesterday--if there were any to answer our wishes. There was one northerner who did get a taste of the south Wednesday and got it in Mason City, although the mercury had slithered down to 29 and then struggled back up to 20. Wednesday Frank C. Goodman, long identified with conservation movements in Iowa, was looking out the window when he happened to see what looked like ' a small brown leaf blown violently across the lawn to rest at the foot of a tree where it was somewhat sheltered from the wind. He was surprised to notice a brief and faint flutter from the brown leaf and went out to investigate. The leaf was a brown creeper, one of the birds which stays here during the winter. Mr. Goodman brought the bird in the house and covered it over and soon it was revived by the warmth. Then he took it over to Kemble's greenhouse and let it loose to fly among the roses, carnations, jonquils--flowers of every kind blooming in rooms as warm as a dream. Now the brown creeper knows what it is like to die and go to heaven. HUNTEK-ROBINSON HAMPTON, Jan. 23.--Announcement was made Wednesday of the marriage of Miss Marvel Robinson and Hilbert Hunter at Crown Point, Ind.

A year ago she went to Hammond and was employed in the coffee shop of the Lyndora hotel. Mr. Hunter is associated with his father in the contracting business at Hammond, Ind., where they will make their home. WOODWAKD-SVVEASY NEW HAMPTON, Jan. 23.--A license to wed was issueu to R.

T. A. meeting. "The Inn of the Golden Cheese," an operetta presented by seventh and eighth grade pupils, was the entertainment feature of the meeting.
