SIX MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 14 1936 NATIONAL BUSINESS WOMEN'S WEEK OBSERVANCE BEGINS Women Will Begin Drive for Freedom Economic Discrimination: Enemy of B. P. W. Club Members. "The economic freedom of American women is in jeopardy," according to Marian Parkhurst of New York, director of organization of the National Federation of Business and Professional Women's clubs. "The best weapon in the struggle to free women from discriminations is to obtain the cooperation of a large, intelligent and articulae body of women," she said. "Every intelligent business woman, when approached, will be eager to join in this campaign because she will be fighting her own battle by joining with other women in the movement for economic liberty for all women. Outstanding Women. "Business Women's week, March 15 to 21, is the ideal time to interest the outstanding women in each town in the federation and the opportunities it offers," Miss Parkhurst said in a letter to Miss Eva Scott, president of the Mason City Business and Professional Women's club. "We can only protect the right of women to work by having such numerical strength that the government as well as the private employer will give careful consideration to any policy which restric^ the right of woman to work. This is the psychological moment to join the crusade and lend strength to the movement." Membership Goals. In urging the clubs to new membership goals, Miss Parkhurst said: "Our members are now engaged in 400 fields of work. The United States census of 1930 lists over 500 fields in which women are occupied. How many of these 500 are represented in your club? What unusual occupations are included? Build up your membership by obtaining representatives of as many different kinds of occupations as possible. "An analysis of the occupations of the state presidents of the federation shows that women are following such unusual careers as teaching at a school of mines, serving as minister of a city church, and act. ing as deputy county prosecuting attorney. In addition, among them are lawyers, auditors, court reporters, bank executives, educators, dentists and shopkeepers. "To prevent the advance of the doctrine that 'Women's Place -Is Solely in the Home,' women must unite and combat discrimination against all women." Addie J. Hagenson Weds Albert E. Borg THOMPSON--Miss Addie Janet Hagenson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. P. K.

Head Wants Qualified Candidates in Office. The eighth annual National Businesswomen's week, with "Effective Democracy" as the National Federation of Business and Professional Women's clubs throughout the country, including Alaska and Hawaii where there are affiliated groups, March 15 to 21, inclusive. Sixty thousand women representing the 1,490 federated clubs will unite to stimulate interest in government. They will ask voters, particularly those who have just reached voting age, to express their viewpoints through the candidates they elect to office. The watchword chosen for this year is "Challenge," a chal- lege by the members of the federation to all people to elect qualified candidates to office, candidates who can direct their offices efficiently and "for the people." Effective Democracy. " 'Effective Democracy' is an inspiration to us all," Miss Charl Ormond Williams, president of the National Federation of Business and Professional Women's clubs, said. "We have incorporated in our program plans especially for first voters, those young men and women who have reached voting age since the last national election. It is said that · 'no nation can well do without the interest, vitality and enthusiasm which its young can supply in the struggle for a continually improved civilization.' "I have felt great pride over the marvelous response to National Businesswomen's week heretofore. This year, by thinking clearly about efficient local government and by spurring first voters to shoulder their responsibilities as citizens, our efforts will encourage the entire nation." Study Election Laws. To bring the aim of National Businesswomen s week before the members and the public it has been suggested that the federation's interest and determination to make democracy effective can best be shown by asking the young voters to tell what they would do if they were mayor or city manager of their own city. They are being asked to study their state' election laws, to find out about the kind of people who are in office and see if they measure up to the highest standard, to learn all they can about local politics, and to make themselves far more familiar with their own city government than the average voter. "The American people remain the ultimate arbiters of all changes in our government. Upon their intelligent straightforward and unhampered action depends the political, social and economic welfare of the nation," Miss Williams said. _*_ Delegation Goes to Cedar Rapids for Conference Thirteen members of the Y.

Observing Business Women Week --Russell Photo MISS EVA SCOXT MISS CHAKL O. WILLIAMS Mrs. Amen Is Speaker at Meeting Theatrical Personalities Are Discussed by Woman's Club. Members of the theater arts section of the Woman's club drama department met Friday afternoon at the Hotel Hanford for a discussion of "Theater Personalities" led by Mrs. Curtis Amen. Pointing out that one conception of personality is that it is the point at which an individual's estimate of himself meets the average estimate of others, Mrs. Amen said that the playgoer's conception of theaterical personalities is based upon fleeting glimpses and sudden awarnesscs. Common Experiences. Taking four of the actors likely to be common to the experiences of most persons, Alfred Lut, Lynn.Fon- tanne. Katharine Cornell and Helen Hayes, Mrs. Amen sketched their careers briefly and said that their private lives seemed to fit in with their stage careers. Alfred Lunt who was born in Milwaukee and lived later at Genesee Depot and Waukesha, Wis. He attended Carroll college at Waukesha for two years. His first fame in the theatrical world came to him on "Clarence" which Booth Tarkington wrote for him after seeing his performance in "My Country Cousin" in a Boston theater. English Success. Lynn Fontanne was born in England and was first a pupil of Ellen Terry. She achieved considerable success on the stage in England but in 1916 was persuaded to come to the United Sates. Mr. Lunt and Miss Fontanne were married in 1923. The group discussed the various plays in which they have appeared and gave impressions of the two. Katharine Cornell creates the illusion of being an exotic creature from another world, Mrs. Amen said. She is shy and her private life is a quiet one. Although most modern actors dislike going on the road, Miss Cornell enjoys trouping. While in Hollywood. Helen Hayes was a child actress, growing up in Washington. She is very timid and was, at the beginning of her career, social. Her Hollywood experience was unsatisfactory to her and she feels that she has not a Hollywood personality. Miss Cornell and Miss Hayes were discussed by the members of of the section. In concluding, Mrs. Amen spoke of two playwrites, George Kaufman and Noel Coward. "Satire is good lor us and America should become accustomed to it," she said. Various plays which Kaufman has written and thethings which he has satirized were reviewed, as were the plays of Coward. Mrs. Amen recommended the reading of "Cavalcade" by Coward and "Of Thee I Sing" by Kaufman, particularly the latter during the coming political campaign.

MYERS, PH. D. Child Training Authority. A certain young salesman once said to me that if I knew how many parents beat their children brutally, I would suggest more warnings in my columns against such barbarity. Perhaps he is right. No doubt a few parents who have been striking their children in rage, or whipping them on the slightest provocation, even whipping adolescent children, have supposed that they have my approval when I advocate selective spanking in the early years, in accordance with a carefully thought- through plan by both parents, to train the young child in the meaning of NO rarely heard, and said with a reasonable purpose. They have not. My hope, indeed, is, by showing parents how to restrain their children intelligently in the early years, to save these children from whippings later, to greatly reduce all punishments, in short. I could never justify boxing a child's ears or slapping him about the face, nor even spanking the tot in rage. Has Four Children. A worried mother of four children, from one to nine, writes asking me to try to persuade her husband not to slap her daughter as he does. "Our eight year old is a fidgety bug, always moving and most always talking. One minute after you have reminded her to be quiet she has thought of something to do or say. But the second time dad reminds her with an unmerciful smacking on the part of her body most available (sometimes right on the ear or side of the head by the temple). Now don't tell me one should not do this. I know it to my toes, but maybe you can tell him through your column . . . " Change Your Methods. My answer was about like this--Dear Fellow Father: I wish I might prevail upon you to change your methods. To box your child's ears might make her deaf. In the first place, why should you let yourself grow annoyed easily at that child's constant talk acd action? If you expected her to talk and not always be still she would seldom vex you. Neverheless, there may be times when she should keep quiet long enough to let others talk. In ·which event, put a clock down and assure her you will all listen courteously for, say, five minutes, after which she must be still until the rest have had a similar opportunity to'talk. If she does no comply, let her take her food and go somewhere to eat alone. But once you are sure your command is justified you would be right in not repeating it. but in assigning reasonable punishment. Perhaps if mother would quit repeating commands, you. dad. would soften in your measures. The important thing is to plan together some rules of conduct which are reasonable, and which both of you will covenant to enforce to the letter. MRS. HARLAN PROCTOR HONORED AT PARTY Mrs. Harlan Proctor was honored at a party'given Friday by Mrs. E. M. Ferleman, 7 Louisiana avenue southeast, on the occasion of her birthday. Bridge was played during the evening with high score prize going to Claire Bellows. Refreshments were served. .;.
