Current Affairs at The Women's Club Of Glen Ridge The Glen Ridge Women's Club is offering a delightful aid to better understanding between the Americas, North and South, in the person of Margarita Madrigal and her guitar, Valentina, at the opening monthly meeting on Tuesday Oct. 6 at 3 P. M Miss Madrigal has a truly Pan- American background with a Span ish father and an American mother. In the course of fier father's career, tne lamuy, uvea in an 11 ve central American republics and in Mexico. In 1923 her mother decided that she had forgotten too much English so she sent her back to Kansas where she attended the Wyandotte High School and, as she says, "got a little Kansas tradition in our make-ups." Following her stay in Kansas, Miss Madrigal went to Mexico where she studied and later taught at the Puegla State Teachers ' College. Recently the University of Mexico commis sioned her to make a survey of the study of Spanish in the United States and she returned to Kansas, followed by a tour of the United States gath ering material for her thesis. She later settled in New York City, in the village, because she found more Spanish architectural atmosphere there. She evolved her own method of teaching Spanish (which includes frequent use of her guitar because it is "good for the rhythm of the language") and numbers among her pupils such famous personages as Sherwood Anderson, the playwright, Mrs. H. V. Kaltenborn, wife of the radio commentator, and Mrs. William Lloyd Garrison 3d, curator-in-chief of the Brooklyn Children's Museum. At a time when Pan-American unity is so essential for the safety and welfare of the entire hemisphere, Miss Madrigal's message is important. And the fact that her English has a slight western inflection and her Spanish is as flat and softly staccato as the purest Castilian, will in no way detract either from the import ance or the enjoyment of her message or songs. Mrs. Ruth Swee2y, the program chairman, will introduce Miss Mad rigal. Cedar Grove P.-T. A.
