As ,he first of a series of speeches
to be delivered before the Women's
lEducational club concerning the sub-
ject of ex1ra-curricular activities for
high school teachers, Prof. Gail E.
Densmore of the Speech department
will give a short talk to the meeting
of the club, next Monday afternoon at
4 oclock. Professor Densmore has
announced his subject as "The .Value
of Good Speech to the Secondary
School Teacher. 1
jThe club will meet for the first time
in th e rooms of the Faculty Womens
Club on 226 South Ingalls street, back
of Hill Auditorium. This is also the
location of the local branch of the
Merrill-Palmer school for children of
pre-school age. Mrs. Hellen Sham-
baugh, faculty spisor of the club,
asks that all the members and vis-
itors will please notice the change of
meeting place.
According to Mrs. Shambaugh, the
inexperienced teacher who is just
graduated from college or university
usually goes into the small school
where she must help coach the de-.
bate team, direct plays, coach basket-
ball, or take some part in a field out-
side of her teaching duties. In arder

According to Alma Johnston, indus-
trial secretary of the Y.W.C.A. of Kan-
sas City, industry has three evil ef-
fects on women, namely: monotony
of the job, speed,-the creed in indus-
try, and a feeling of inferiority. "The
Y.W.C.A. is trying to offset these
f three evils," says Miss Johnston. "In
this way the worker has an oppor-
tunity for relaxation and self-expres-
Miss Johnston has discovered that
workers do not have as good a chance
in the middle west as in the eastern
cities. In the middle west foreign
women change their names so that
they can get jobs, because they do not
have the avenues of help that they
have in the east.
Students interested in getting down
to the facts of industrial work might
profitably spend six weeks in the 'sum-
mer working as a part of the indus-
trial experiment. Such an experi-
ment is held in Chicago every sum-
mer for college women, in which they
find work in some industrial situa-
tion for six weeks, supporting them-
selves from the wages received. Miss
Johnston believe's that the experiment
is of inestimable value to the women
who carry it out.
