WASHINGTON, D. C. -- "Although the General Federation of Women's clubs is one of the lowest- cost organizations of women in the world, carrying on its gigantic program on a per capita membership dues of only 10 cents, its scope of interest and influence is ever widening," said Mrs. Roberta Campbell Lawson, president. "At our annual meeting which will open Tuesday of this week in Miami, Fla., we are offering for the vote of our members 11 resolutions touching many vital international and national problems in education, welfare and citizenship. These resolutions have been sent out to all of our more than 16,000 member-clubs embracing 2,000,000 women for study and vote, thus ensuring an intelligent vote at Miami. .Hundreds of women were registered for attendance at the meeting- several weeks in advance. "The keynote of this administration, 'Education for Living,' will be emphasized in the programs to be presented by our nine departments. Some one has said that, 'education is the art of learning live ·with other people,' and surely we clubwomen should be exponents of this particular art. What better keynote could we take for the coming year than: 'Education in the art of living with each other,' thus opening up for ourselves courses in Kindness and courtesy, unselfishness and tolerance and all those other precious virtues embodied in the Golden Rule." Education "Stressed. Education and patriotism will be stressed in the addresses of the distinguished -guest speakers at the council. Dr. Frank L. McVey, president of the University of Kentucky, will be the special speaker on state president's night April 29, and will discuss "Drifts in National Living," with emphasis on phases of interest to all the states and those pertaining to education for living.

Balyeat, professor of secondary education at the University of Oklahoma, Mrs. Grace Elmore Gibson, prominent attorney of Tulsa, OWa., and -Miss Marita Steuve, student at Rollins college, Winter Park, Florida, will participate in a symposium, "What Patriotism Means to Me," on national president's night, April 30. The composition of Mana-Zucca, famous Miami musician, will be sung by Percy Long, accompanied .by the composer. · The time for the radio hour has teen changed to 11:45 EST, the morning of April 29. The program -which will be broadcast through the courtesy of the National Broadcasting company over its red network, ·will include messages from Mrs. Lawson, chairmen of the nine major departments and of special committees, and Mrs. Albert Powers oi Powers, Ore., vice chairman of the department for junior club women and herself a junior. Department Programs.

Salmon of Winter Park, Fla., chairman of international relations for the Florida federa- uon, who will discuss "The Good Neighbor Policy." Miss Salmon has traveled extensively in Latin America.

A dinner and floor show will be given by the Florida women for the board of directors, delegates and distinguished guests. A joint banquet will .be held by the state presidents and General Federation directors for the states and numerous regional dinners are scheduled. Luncheons Planned.

At the close of the Book Reviewers Guild Founded for Mason City In affiliation with the National uild of Book Reviewers, a local Guild for Mason City has been organized consisting of R. J. Glass, Margaret Rule, Mrs. R.' W. Eaum- jartner and Enoch A. Norem. The Mason City Guild is one of over three hundred that has been organized since February in 47 states, and the national organization will be hi full operation throughout he country in May. It represents an effort to offer honest, worthwhile, ocal criticism of good new books to cities and towns which do not receive much benefit from the reviews of metropolitan book critics or the usual book advertising. The response from educators, lawyers, clergy, society and club women; in fact from eople representing all intellectual ursuit8, has been enthusiastic and ipontaneoua and augurs well for the success of tne plan. The local guilds are usually enlisted through the co-operation of local jooksellera who will display the reviews of their membeis. . It is expected that the work of each individual reviewer will tend to increase as well as beneficially guide and control local reading. It is felt that if local people whose intellectual opinions are respected were to review books regularly and if their uninfluenced reviews were printed and prominently displayed, not only would they duplicate the service provided by metropolitan book pages, but there would be a personal, special, local touch to the job which would be -valuable to their fellow- citizens. -- . -Figures Given to Show Trend of Population By GARRY C. MYEKS, PH. D. Child Training Expert. There are about 35,000,000 parents of children under 21 in the United States. About 40 per cent of our population now are over 40 years of age. In 50 years more about half our population will be over 40, and only a quarter will be under 20. In 1950 we will have 10,000,000 people over 65 years of age. Will this make life harder for the child? Fewer children are feeing bom: The birth rate is declining. And the greatest decrease is among those who economically can best afford children and can give them best opportunities. Between 1900 and 1930 the decrease in size of family was 10 per cent in professional groups, while among unskilled labor it was only 1 per cent. Whereas families of farm owners also decreased l per cent in this period, families of farm renters increased 5 per cent, and of farm laborers increased 13 per cent. B«st American Stock. According to Lorimer and Osborne, "there is hardly a single urban group in which the majority of the young people enjoy the advantages of high school, and in which many continue their education through college that is now replacing itself from one generation to another." Will our best American stock gradually disappear? Experts have estimated that at present rate we might expect, during a generation, a decrease of 12 per cent in the "genius class" and an increase of from 5 to 9 per cent in the various grades of feebleminded. In the United States are 4,000,000 who .have never learned to read and write, though many of them could. We have 3,000,000 children -with impaired hearing, and 3,000,000 more with speech defects which greatly handicap them socially. wil come "Play Day," May 1, to be spent Square Neck Line Is,Smart GLOBE-GAZETTE FEEKLESS 15 CENT PA1TKKN 160 Fifth Avenue, New York City by DIANA DAY Attractive Frock Has Shoulder Line Which Buttons and Gaped Sleeves; Square Neckline Becoming.

We rank first among the civilized nations of the western world in letting mothers die in childbirth-with more than 15,000 maternal deaths a year--nearly half as many as the number of persons killed annually in automobile accidents.

Many of the contributions, Mrs. Greenberg pointed out, are in units of S360, which is the amount specified for the education and maintenance of a child in Palestine for two years under the directon of the Youth Aliyah authorities.
