Mme. Schwinimr Was Premment
In Peace Activities
During War
Mme. Roskika Schwimmer, fam-
ous Hungarian suffragette and
peace worker will speak on "The
Abolition of War" on Dec. 6, in Hill
auditorium. Mme. Schwimmer was
the leader of the feminist move-
ment in Hungary, and was the press
secretary of the International Suf-
frage Allaince.
During the war period , Mine.
Schwimmer was one of the leaders
of the movement to bring about
the end of the war. Soon after the
outbreak of hostilities, she visited
America, and interviewed President
Wilson on the possibility of calling
an international conference to end
the war. Although the President's.
reply was favorable, the plan fell
through.
Mime. Schwimmer was one of the
most prominent figures in the call-
ing of the Women's Internation'al
Congress at the Hague, of which
Jane Addams was chairman. Out
of Mme. Schwinmer's efforts, there
grew two delegations of women who
interviewed the heads of the bellig-
erent and neutral nations in an
attempt to put an end to the fight-
ing by finding some way of settling
their disputes by conference. Jane
Addams led the group visiting the
Allied and neutral nations, while
Mime. Schwimmer headed the dele-
gation to the Central Powers. Out
of the replies given to these dele-
gation grew the Ford Peace Expedi-
tion. The replies have never been
made public, and will appear in
piint for the first time in Mme.
Schwimmer's memoirs, which are
soon to be published.
Mme. Schwiimmer will be
brought here under the auspices of
the Cosmopolitan club. Tickets
for her lecture will be sold at
thirty-five and fifty cents, and will
be put on sale about a week before
she appears.
