six MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 24 1934 PRE-EASTER LULL IN ACTIVITIES OF LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS Friendship World Tour to Far East General Federation of Women's Clubs to Sponsor Second Trip. WASHINGTON, March 24.--The General Federation of Women's clubs will sponsor its second world friendship tour during the coming summer, the itinerary Including the West Indies, Panama canal, California, Honolulu, Japan, China and the Philippines. The party will sail from New York June 21 and return to Seattle Sept. 4 and will be personally conducted by the president of the General Federation, Mrs. Grace Morrison Poole, world traveler end lecturer extraordinary. , "The success of the first world friendship tour to Europe in 1933 has encouraged the General Federation to propose this second tour," said Mrs. Poole. "We have heard for years of our European clubs-- ·what they are doing in the countries in which they now find themselves; tut we have failed to realize that in the far east we have clubs just as closely linked to us IB oneness of purpose as those to the west. So we believe that the intimate intercourse with our clubwomen throughout the world is one of the best pieces of international relations work we can do at the present time." As was the case in the European .trip, the 25 clubs in the several countries to be visited will be called upon, and a round of receptions, dinners, luncheons and other entertainments will be given. The visiting' clubwomen will also be received at the American embassies and legations. Travel talks will be given enroute by Mrs. Poole and opportunity will be given for sightseeing, for visits to points of historic interest and shopping. As the party visiting Europe last summer had the distinction of being the largest of the season, it is expected that the one this year will attract a large number of clubwomen and their families and friends. Mr. and Mrs. Bob Chambers of Storm Lake, formerly of Mason City, were expected to arrive Saturday for a week-end visit.

Names Have Influence on Life of Children; So Choose Carefully By BROOKE PETERS CHURCH Mrs. Chase did not like her Christian name and had always felt it a trial to have to bear it. She had complained of it so persistently that everyone avoided using it and called her by some variant of it instead. Having no daughter, -the question of perpetuating the name never arose until she began to be a grandmother, and then troubles began. Her daughters-in-law, who had heard Mrs. Chase's diatribes against her name, took it for granted she would not wish to hand it on and were therefore amazed when they found how strong her desire was to have a grandchild named for her. It did not seem quite kind or fair to the baby, however, to wish on it a name which had for so long been a trial to its grandmother, and so a compromise was eventually made, much to the old lady's disgust. Names have far more of an influence on a child's life than one might think and should be carefully pondered before being bestowed on a helpless baby. It is, of course, possible to change a name, but before the time comes when a child is ready to do this, his life may already have been made a burden by the teasing of his companions. That a name is part of the family tradition, or borne by parents or grandparents, is not a valid reason for passing '.it. on. Some names' would be far better forgotten, as,' for example, some of the extraordinary Puritan names or original compositions which at one time or another have been woven out of some fertile imagination; Names are nearly as hard and fast as inheritance as are physical characteristics, but whereas the parents cannot control the color of eyes and hair, they have it in their power to alleviate the heritage of names. Department Prepares to Give Comedy Musical Burlesque of "Uncle Tom's Cabin" Tuesday at High School. The week before Easter finds a. lull in social events with many plans being; made for post-Lenten activities.
