When Miss Steam* called upon those who hnd been negligent in regard to the rending of their children to raise their hand* practically every woman responded. Then she began on authors nnd maenfilnes, She did not lion "sex," but she flayed what termed the "obstetrical story," Miss Stearns objected, among other things to the writings of Robert W. Chambers nnd then she proceeded to suggest that some current magazine* ought to be confiscated by the government. "We should have freedom of the press, but we should not/have freedom of obscenity and sensuality."-she said, "These obstetrical novels sire the one great thlnu Unit cause divorce. They cause n girl to expect and to wish from her husband' the worst sort of passion instead of n devoted lifelong'affection. A girl Is going to lie judged by her home, by her chums, and by the honks .•die rends. Those books will make or break her." she City Of Sterling Will Have a Birthday On February 10th Of Next Year.
