WASHINGTON, D. Q. Feb. 17.-Information recently 'gathered and compiled by the General Federation of Women's clubs concerning' clubhouses, discredits any claim that women's^ clubs are dying-, for dying- clubs do not Build permanent homes. Prom the figures given it is showrj that two thirds of all clubhouses were built in the last decade: also that nearly 1,000 clubs own their individual homes; more homes are jointly several clubs and that clubs have permanent meeting. . A total of 940 individual clubhouses have an indicated value of 518,759,180. This figure is considerably below the value of all club house property as in many cases the returned questionnaires omitted this information. While most of the houses owned jointly, are the joint property ..of women's organizations, not infrequently are the joint owners of women's and men's organizations. Large cities have huge and expensive clubhouses costing a million dollars or more, but the real romance of clubhouse financing' and building: is to be found in the small town or village, where tumbled down houses, deserted churches and even box carsrare transformed into community meeting places -- frequently that (57 owned by 357 other places of the only gathering place for miles around and not infrequently housing a small library. Desdemona, Texas, with a population of 3,000, has two clubhouses, valued at $200 each. Lo Lo, Mont., a village of 60 people, has a woman's clubhouse valued at $1,200 and in the same state the Clinton Woman's club owns a $2,000 clubhouse, tho ths town has but 70 population. Of clubhouses reported two thirds are in towns of less.than 10.000 and one tenth are in cities of over 100,000. In numbers, California tops the list with 245. Florida second with 145. Lan?e clubs arc usually financed thru bond issues. Building Loan associations, partial mortgages or one of the more regular methods, but small srrvÂ»Ji\s use every plan ingenious woman cxn devise including taxiing:, carnivals, harvest festivals, penny-a-day savings banjos, rummage sales, "card parties, and the buying and selling of real estate, as in Florida in its boom days. WORDS-- A Daily Discussion of Pronunciation, Spelling and Meaning--Ideas Invited. -By Airs. E. E. Huntet : Address (ad-dres) has been a fa vorite word of the Globe-Gazette for a long time and much eloquent campaigning has been done for it The frequent mispronunciation of this word is a matter of throwing the accent on the wrong'syllable. The last syllable should be stressed whether it is a noun or a verb. No matter if you mean the place you live or the thing you say the pronunciation remains the 'same.

A u d i t o r i u m Is Filled for Performance Drama Â· Holds Interest of Crowd; Acting Well Done. Playing to a well filled auditorium the Drama Shop Players presented "This Way Out," an entertaining mystery comedy, Monday' evening under the auspices of the St. Rita society. The performance was distinguished by the capability of the actors, interest of the plot and smoothness of direction. Â· All the action took place in the home of Paddy Casey, played by Larry Reardon, a contractor- who has retired after accumulating his million. He is continually harassed by the ambition of his social climbing wife, Mary Anne, Bea Lynch. They were both well cast and tool; their parts with poise and ability. Their children, Kathleen, Mildred Goerner; Maggie, Katherynne Trissel and Michael, Victor Glo.ss, all gave interesting performances. Kathleen and Michael were pitted with their mother against their father and their sister. Maggie. Their ambitions had involved them in the activities of a gang of diamond smugglers and as the play opened Michael had just received another shipment of the jewels which he wa.s to deliver to Jack Linton, the leader of the g~ang. Plot Involved. Mr. Casey and George Drake who wishes to marry Kathleen plan to give the social climbers a dose of their own medicine and they are aided in their plans by Jim Dougherty of the United States treasury department who is after th? smuggled jewels. Harlan Girton played the part oÂ£ George Drake and Murray Goodman, Jim Dougherty, and. both gave capable per- "ormances. Jn the second act Mr. Dougherty appears disguised as a'n Italian dancing master who has come to instruct Mr. Casey. The comeciv which ensues is augmented by the storming of the tempermental Armand Francois Boni Aime de ovier, a French modiste, who has jrot some " gowns for Kathleen. Tommy Gregory as "Moonseer" jovier provided many laughs for :he audience with his artistic outbursts and his unusual make-up. To Steal Jewels. Madam Anna Bairski, a pretended bolshevik, played by Mary Sherman; manages to enter. the Casey home thru Kathleen in'hopes that she may get the jewels. Her confederate is Humpy Steele, the jani- :or, Everett Dawson, who is Jack Linton. gang leader, in disguise. Miss Sherman was convincing in her role of the "slickest crook from New York to Seattle." Adrienne Kohl as Eileen, the maid, played her role with confidence and poise. Secretly loving Michael Casey, she tries to save him from the smugglers and from the law. Act three opens at midnight, the time when Madam Bairski has planned to'take the jewel.i and leave, when Eileen has planned to take the jewels and save Michael, when Michael has planned to get rid of the jewels, when Kathleen has planned to run away, when Mrs. Casey lias planned to help Lovier escape and when Dougherty has .planned to catch the thief. All the culprits are assembled in the living room when Dougherty enters and catches them. Confessions Made. Individual confessions clear up the mysteries and Michael is handcuffed as the thief altho Eileen trys to shoulder his blame. In the excitement Eileen has dropped the jewels and Linton steals them. Then faking that he has been badly wounded he staggers into the room. He is carr'^1 upstairs to die and confesses to the smuggling. It is revealed that Madam Bairski is his wife. Peace is restored in the Casey household nnd the announcement that Eileen is the daughter of a friend of Casey makes her marriage to Michael right in the eyes of Mrs Casey. An interesting quirk in the plot came at the end of the play when after the family had ad journed to the kitchen for a cup of coffee. Madam Bairski and Jack Linton come down stairs, pocket everything worth stealing and flee. The Ca'seys, glad that nothing has been stolen which cannot be re- Therc is real change in one's vision at middle age -- have an examination now.

Resident of Plymouth Finds Early Blossom in Field If Sir William Gilbert were writing the "Mikado" today he might not be so sure about the "Flowers that bloom in the spring, tra la, They never will bloom in the fall." If they bloom in the winter as they are doing now, they will certainly bloom iri the fall--or any other time of the year which pleases them?--T4ie. -latest acquisition '"of the GloberGazette nature study department is three crocus flowers, the contribution of L. L. Sutton of Plymouth who found them blooming about a mile north of Plymouth. The crocus Mr. Sutton found are of a delicate mauve color and have a faint perfume. They look very- springlike with their fuzzy green stems and bright yellow pollen. The crocus has been the harbinger of spring from early Greek days and its appearance has been noted by Homer. Surely it is indubitable evidence that the groundhog story is a myth and that we do not have to wait until St. Patrick's day for fine weather. Earlier than Mr. Sutton's crocus were Mrs. C. B. Bailey's narcissus which sprouted in her garden the first week of February. They have not bloomed, however. A dandelion has been glimpsed near Mercy hospital hy another observer. And spring is really here--tra la. Too Many Regulations Make Child Confused; ' Defeat Own Putposes Hy ALICE JUDSON TEALE Irritability, peevishness, disobedience and temper tantrums are frequently caused by nothing more .obscure than the fact that the chiH is expected to obey entirely too many rules. There are so many don'ts that the child feels himself to be frustrated in nearly everything he wants to do. This constant interfering with his 3 SOUTH FEDERAL Presenting Fashionable Apparel Direct From Fifth Avenue New York -- COMING TO -MASON CITY SOON Watch For Opening Date natural desires for his own childish kind of activity inevitably breeds in him a spirit of rebellion which shows itself in many of the undesirable ways already mentioned. Even if it were possible for a child completely to subordinate his own wishes in favor of these adult demands he would be too confused to do so. He literally cannot remember which things are permitted and which are forbidden, for where there are many rules he can see no sense in any oj them. He cannot tell by using his reason whether he is being naughty or not. Conformity to those rules which are necessary for his health and safety and for harmony in the home demands of the child a constant modification of hia own wishes. To force him to make sacrifices and .control himself where it is not absolutely essential is a stupid misuse of parental authority. It can serve only to make the child unco- operative and rebellious. It puts him in constant fear of disapproval and punishment for indulging his most natural impulses. It interferes with an undisturbed absorption in his play which in his early years is one of the chief avenues of mental development. With a certain type of child it tends to develop anxiety and timidity born of a chronic worry about wrongdoing with its attendant punishment and withdrawal of parental love. Honored on Anniversary. THOMPSON--About 50 relatives friends and neighbors attended a silver wedding anniversary in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Holland Sunday at the city hall. It was a surprise on Mr. and Mrs. Holland.
