Many · " O P T O A A E T R l S T · 110 North Federal Mason City Styles Octagon CLASSES Bess Wilson Speaker for Department Journalist Looks to Industrial War Between Men and Women. Speaking, on "Books by Women, about - Women and for Women," Mrs. Bess Wilson of the Minneapolis Journal reviewed a group of her favorite books at a meeting of the Woman's club literature department Wednesday afternoon at the Y. W. C. A. "Now that women are facing an industrial war with men that will make the suffrage fight look like a Sunday school picnic, it is a good thing for women to believe in their own sex and to know what women have accomplished," she said. "The Memoirs of Glueckel of Hameln," a diary written by a seventeenth century Jewish woman, translated from the German by Marvin Loyenthal, was the first book reviewed by Mrs. Wilson who said that the book was endearing because of the writer's delicious sense of humor and of the fact that she met everything with poise. End of SO Years' War. "The 'Memoirs' were written to still the lonliness which Glueckel felt at the, loss of her husband," Mrs. Wilson said. She lived in Europe at the close of the 30 years' war when Europe was in a state of upheaval. She was married at the age of 14 to a boy whom she had never met and at his death she had 14 children. She carried on his business, managing a hosiery factory and dealing in jewels and bonds. Her second husband, a backer,.lost his money and hers with it and the close of the book is saddened because of the fear of Glueckel that she will have to live with her children. "The book is a good picture of the trials which the Jews of that period suffered," Mrs. Wilson said. She pointed out that the reason the Jewish people dealt In bonds and jewels was simply because they must have their wealth in a portable form since they were so often forced to move or to pay tribute. Avoid Playing Cards. 'The Blue Stocking Letters, 1 ' a group of letters by eightenth century Englishwomen who formed a club to get away from playing cards, was the second book discussed by Mrs. Wilson. "For a group of women to get together without male society, was an unprecedented thing-,", Mra-.Wilson, said:. "ThfiileV ; te« are"in:'-language* besuttftil : a£oV ibrfttle as fine old china. When men such as David; Garrick, Horace Wai- pole and Samuel Johnson sought out the group, the women appreciated what a good joke it was that the men realized a feminine mind could be interesting. The Blue Stocking club is an episode in the progress of women for a place of equality with men. 'The same period in France is described in 'Gay Court Life' by Ercole which pictures the amazing, disgusting,' pitiful conditions under which the women of the French court lived/The book is interesting as .a setting for Stephan Zweig's 'Marie Antoinette,' and also in providing a contrast between tht English and French women of the same period. "Room of One's Own." 1 'A Room of One's Own, 1 by Virginia Woolf is the best thing she has done, I don't like her novels, but she is a brilliant essayist. The book contrasts the provisions for a woman's education with those for a man's. It' points out that women have never had the opportunity that men have had and that they have had to hold up a magnifying mirror to men to aid them in accomplishing any great work. Mrs. Woolf's plea is that women have an equal chance with men. " 'Earth Horizons' by Mary Austin is not a great book, but a good one. Written by an American woman, some 80 years old, it describes the changes she has seen and been intensely interested in. Bitterness over an unhappy marriage has detracted from the quality of the closing chapters. Frst Sidewalk Laid. "Mary Beard's 'America Through Woman's Eyes,' provides a panorama of what women have done in America since the first sidewalk was laid by a Dutch woman who wanted to keep people out of the mud. It contains excerpts from the .writings of women, incorporated ir, a well organized history of woman's progress. It tells of the suffrage fight which had any civil war backed off the map. It describes all the political, industrial and economic fights which women have had. " 'Amazons and Angels' by Inez Hayes Irwin contains good material poorly handled. Reworked, it would provide several good volumes." In concluding Mrs. Wilson spoke of Phil Stong's forthcoming book, "Village Life," which pictures Brunswick, a small town in which people do despicable things. Mrs. Wilson said that most writers seem to think that realism must be ugly and depict sex crazed, money maddened, unclean, unfair people and that she felt realism, such as that, of Gladys Hasty Carroll's in "As the Earth. Turns," is just as convincing. · _*_ ' A request from a Kansas City fire company for a wheel chair for a paralyzed woman of their acquaintance, published in a morning newspaper, brought offers of eight by 9 o'clock, the same morning. EXPEBT DEDUCTION .By Tom O'Nell la a rubber game at the Knickerbocker Whist club, New York, George Reith's partner started the auction with one no trump, second hand bid two hearts and Reith forthwith called six spades, which was doubled fourth hand and redoubled by the opening bidder. Dozens of kibitzers broke into applause as Reith fulfilled the contract in a manner that illustrated how a top-notcher can get information from bids, doubles and drop of the cards. Here was the hand: SMART SCHOOL DRESS SCAKF FINISHES HIGH NECKLINE OF FROCK DESIGNED FOR SPRING CLASSROOM WEAR Globe-Gazette Peerleu IS Cent I'utern, iw Finn Itene, New fork til? .

But, in justification, he knew that North would not have bid one no trump without three suits stopped and that North must have some spades, since a void or singleton would have precluded a no.trump offer. The opening lead was the king of hearts, and the first thing for Reith to decide was what caused West to double. The declarer's mental processes'were something as follows: "Obviously West must have the protected king of spades, and, therefore, I shall lose a trump. West probably has only two hearts, since East needed a long string with which to overcall one no trump. "Are both the club king and the diamond king in the West hand so that finesses of the minor queens North will succeed or can West he squeezed by running a string of spades? "Well, East must have something in clubs or diamonds besides a string of hearts headed by the queen with which to overcall one no trump. Has East the diamond king or the club king? Wait, and perhaps we'll have a clew." Reith won the king of hearts with the ace North, discarding a low club South. From the North hand a small spade was led and the ace played South. East's failure to follow verified the indication that West had the king and another trump with which to double. A trump lead from South put West in with the king, and he led another heart, which made Reith's task harder. Had West led a diamond or club Reith might have deduced which minor king East held. After ruffing the heart South, Reith decided that ruffing of diamonds would give him the best chance^to make his slam. He led to the ace. The fall of the ten-spot East showed that East probably held the diamond king. The six of diamonds was trumped South, th« North hand entered via spade lead to the knave and the nine of diamonds was ruffed South, the king falling East. Then it was allover but the applause. It was certain now that West held the club king. A low club was led from the South hand and the queen finessed. On the queen of diamonds a club was discarded South. The rest of the tricks were taken by the ace of clubs and spades in the South hand. --_ A court action in San Mateo, Cal., revealed the Buri Buri rancno, which included the entire San Francisco peninsula in Spanish California days, had dwindled to a single acre. Enthusiasm of Child Wanes Soon; Harmless When Rightly Directed By BROOKE PETERS CHtJBCH When he was 4 years old Tommy developed a passion for carpentry, and chiefly for driving nails. His family was driven nearly to distraction by the appearance of nails and scars in even the drawing room furniture, and racked their brains to think of some method of satisfying the youngster's mania, while protecting the household goods. Finally his father produced a nice, solid piece of wood and a box of nails, and told Tommy that he could practice driving nails into the block as much as he liked, but that if he touched anything else, whether house, furniture, or outbuildings, he would not be permitted to use a hsmmur at all. ':" The boy drove nails off and on all the first dayi "and after fie had gone to bed his father painstakingly pulled them all out and prepared the equipment for another day. The second day Tommy worked as busily as ever, and again his father patiently undid the results of his labor that night. By the third day the child's enthusiasm was waning, and presently, hammer and nails were discarded for a new interest. Children have sudden fancies for doing some one thing over a given period of time. Granted an expression of their hobby, they generally recover very rapidly. The difficulty is that many of these pursuits can be very destructive. If they can in any way be given an outlet until the enthusiam wears off, they are likely to be of short duration and harmless. Often, indeed, they have a constructive value, as in the case of Tommy, who learned a lot about how to drive nails and drive them straight, and acquired a considerable amount of muscular control during his moment of enthusiasm.
