SIBslE-1 -:••"{- • TAGI FOUR—THE MORNING AVALANCHE SyMaryaret Turner /.SCOUTS o£ Lubbock to[ day may look back on 30 years «I "• service of an organization founded by Juliette Low of Savannah, Ga., March 12, whe^ she Ic.vited several girls to her home. A memorial tea will ba given at the Girl Scout Little House Saturday afternoon between 3 and 5 o'clock. * * * LUBBOCK TAKE A BOW: . Recently an army officer's ' wife told The Woman's Angle that she had lived all over the United States and in Hawaii end she has never known a town whose residents are more friendly and cordial toward newcomers than Lubbock. * * * « FAVORITE TOPIC r\NE OF OUR favorite topics, \s next to sure cure diets which seldom, if ever, work, is the age old debate on "Why. men get on my nerves" or vice versa so popular with editors of magazines. We like men. There are four brothers in our family and about 50 men in the organization in which we make a living We get along with men all right although once in a while some things they say cause us to grow a little peevish, perverse or vexatious. By and large, however, our associations with men hav<> left us cheerful and since we are not a militant feminist we get along with them peacefully enough. * * * rpHERE'S a little story out of Los •*• Angeles concerning the rebellion of the Wo—.en's Ambiance and Defense Corps against what they are terming "totalitarian rule" by men. Col. John W. Colbert, national commander, says the demotion of the leader to the rank of private was caused by her -failure to exercise "proper authority." It seems that the women in the Los Angeles unit spent too much time In pink tea activities and not enough time with the serious matters for which the corps was organized. This rebellion would appear humorous to The Woman's " Aj?J|le if these were peaceful times or even if the date happened to be March, 1941, instead of the present time. But nothing that tears down public morale, that causes a break in the preparations for an "all out" for our country's cause is funny to us now. We wish that men and women could work together in harmony on such occasions. Mrs. Dorothy Hewes Bell, commander of the Los Angeles unit, did not want to take orders if we are to believe the United Press story. Thereby hangs a' tale of many women. Right here in our town there are capable women who have not volunteered their services In the war emergency because they feel they cannot work with certain other women. It makes us ashamed of them, really it does! Contribution Made By B And PW Club Meeting in Hotel'.
