Power of Women "Women are the civillzers of society," she 1 said, as she spoke of their patronage of the arts, drama, education, etc. "They are essentially mothers, anrf whether or not they have children of their own, they are always reaching out to protect all God's children, And, while the need of today is staggering, the power of women can cope with It In time, as they are driven | by the deepest of all emotions -' the love of Mankind." j An Informal reception for the 1 guests was held following the meeting In the dining room of the church.
