The last Woman's club meeting of the year was held Monday evening at the Y. W. C. A. when the philosophy class of the literature department met to study philosophers of the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries with Miss Alice MacDonald as leader. Miss MacDonald spoke of the life of Spinoza, a Jew who was excommunicated from the synagog for his beliefs. He held that the only happiness comes through knowledge and that God exists in two manifestations, the primary or extension manifestations such as shape or motion and the secondary, color, smell or taste. "Kant believes that man's ideas result from Ins experiences which are learned through the senses and that if matter is inconceivable it does not exist," Miss MacDonald said. She spoke of Nietzsche and Schopenhauer and discussed Nietzsche's book, "Thus Spake Zurathus tra" and his philosophy o£ the superman. "Schopenhauer felt that his women are to be given . masculine privileges, they should have been given a masculine intellect," she said. Following Miss MacDonald's talk there was an informal discussion. MOE-DAHLY. DECORAH, Dec. 19--Misa Henrietta Dahly, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Dahly, and Valdorf Moe, brother of Professor L,.

System of Freedom for Children Presents Many Dangers With Benefits By BROOKE PETERS CHURCH One of the difficulties of the present day freedom of children from interference and influence is that the independence which we have aimed for is not and cannot be possible. It is not in tile nature of human beings to keep their hands off the next fellow, especially if they can attain a feeling of powei» by their example or teaching. The parent who sends his or her small child out to experience life in the world of his contemporaries must face the fact that the child will meet all kinds of children from all kinds of homes, and will inevitably have ideas put into hi.n head which may or may not be desirable. In no case, will he be left to follow his own road. One of the most unfortunate features of the system is the over- sophistication of children who arc scarcely out of the nursery, and should still be playing dolls or tiu soldiers. There is always some small girl or boy who will start the idea of "being sweet on someone," and like- a disease the fever will creep through the class, until in self defense the smallest boys and girls will be casting sheep's eyes and writing notes. Parents and teachers are sometimes not free of blame, for to many of them the picture of little children playing at being in love is "cunning." and they will talk about "your little sweetheart" and encourage their precocious sentimentality. Up to high-school age it is fat healthier for boys to look down on girls and for girls to scorn boys as nuisances. If they play together it should be as equals, with no quarter taken or given. The time will come naturally soon enough when both boys and girls awake to the fact that a complete world holds both men and women.
