where they divided into two lines
going around each side and form-
ing columns of four as they ap-
proached the north center again.
This was repeated until the lines
were eight abreast. The entire
group was then massed at the cen-
ter of the floor and a picture was
taken by a local photographer.
The music of the night was fur-
nished by Maurie Sherman and
his orchestra, formerly of the Col-
lege Inn of Chicago. The versatile
band played selections ranging
from dreamy waltzes to scorching
fox-trots, to which were added
several feature numbers by mem-
bers of the orchestra.
The chaperones were President

Little, Dean John R. Effinger and
Mrs. Effinger, Mr. Wilbur R.

Miss Yeo, general chairman, led
the ball in a striking gown of black
velvet, studded with rhinestonesl

effectively designed with a long
train, and she also wore brilliants<
in her hair and on her slippers.
Florence Holmes, '29, president of
the Pan-Hellenic association, who
came second in line, wore a beauti-
ful gown of white satin, and Mar-
garet Fead, '30, who managed the
finances of the ball, came third ini
line, in a stunning and close fitting
black satin dress, which hadl
touches of blue velvet ribbon on it.t
Miss Mary Stuart, '30, chairmanI
of the chaperone committee, was
effectively dressed in a Nile greenĀ°
gorgette, trimmed with tiers, of~
crystal beads. A very simple but
stunning gown of pale pink chiffon
velvet was worn by Miss Virginiaj
Losee, '30. It was designed in
straight lines, with only one bril-

The life of Madame Rosika
Schwimmer, who "js to speak next
Thursday night in Hill auditorium
under the auspices of the Cosmo-
politan club, has been the eventful
one of a feminist and pacifist dur-
ing the period of the World war.
Madame Schwimmer began to1
write when she was 16 years old.
She entered the suffragist move-
ment very young and soon became
secretary of the International Al-
liance for Woman Suffrage, of
which Mrs. Carrie ChapmangCatt
was president. For nine years she
also edited in Hungary a feminist
and pacifist review. Until the be-
ginning of the war she lectured on
politics, feminism, pacifism and ed-
ucation in practically all of the
European countries.
Organized Peasant Women
As she belonged to no political
party, Madame Schwimmer was
free to organize the women of all
classes. Thus, she organized thel
Hungarian peasant women for
feminist and pacifist action, and
she was much sought after in all
countries to assist in organizing
groups of young people of both
sexes. Her success earned her the
affectionate name: "The Pied Pi-!
per of Hungary."
In the beginning of August, 1924,
she raised her voice against the
war and conceived the plan of a
conference of neutral governments'
which, by acting as mediators
should bring the war to an end as
quickly as possible. Living at that
time in London, she became the
moving spirit in a campaign to put
an end to the conflict, and, in the
early weeks of the war, she gath-
ered signatures from feminist or-
ganizations representing great
numbers of women belonging to
neutral countries and those at war.
With this petition in hand, she left
by the first boat for the United
In September, 1914, Madame
Schwimmer had her first interview
with President Wilson. Before that
she had seen Secretary of State'
Bryan and several other officials.
Spoke Throughout America
From September, 1914, to April,
1915, she traveled through the
United States and spoke in 22 dif-
ferent states, addressing clubs, un-
iversities, colleges, high schools, el-
ementary schools. She spoke in
halls andkatkopen-air meetings.
She was asked to speak before
many Chambers of Commerce, and
in Nebraska she even addressed the
state legislature.
Then, in April, 1915, at The
Hague, came the International Wo-
men's Congress with an attend-

ance of 2,000 from the warring and
neutral countries. M a d a m e
Schwimmer cancelled her Ameri-I
can engagements and embarked for
Holland. In the meantime, as a;
result of her activities, a pacifist
group, the Women's Peace Party,
had been organized in the United
States with Jane Adams as presi-
dent and Rosika Schwimmer as in-
ternational secretary.
Jane Adams led a delegation of
women from neutralacountries
which submitted the plan of the
neutral conference to the warring
governments, while M a d a m e
Schwimmer had charge of the del-
egation sent to the neutral gov-
ernments. Her delegation consist-
ed of an English woman, an Amer-
ican woman, and a Dutch woman.
The activities of the two delega-
tions lasted from May to August
and put them into touch with the
ruling powers, kings, presidents of
republics, and the Pope. Some of
the governments received the dele-
gations several times. Both war-
ring governments and neutral gov-
ernments expressed the opinion
that only through such a plan
could the war be ended by media-
tion rather than by military vic-
tory and all that it involved.
Madame Schwimmer sought Jane
Adams in order to deliberate on
the line of conduct to pursue. They
published a manifesto showing that
the belligerents of both sides were
ready to accept mediation. Ma-
dame Schwimmer then undertook
a new lecture tour in the United
States and some days before her
departure for Europe succeeded in
arousing the interest of Henry
Spoke Well Of America
After the United States entered
the war, Madame Schwimmer
made it a point of honor to write
and speak about America. In or-
der to refute the defamation of
America which was current among
Sthe Central Powers, she stressed the
great and generous phases of
American Institutions. Her steady
