To Honor Dean Kraus


First Southern Woman In Congress
Holds That Modern Mother Has
Less Limited Scope
When William Jennings Bryan
was an unknown lawyer in a com-
paratively strange town, and was
running for the presidency of the
United States, Ruth Bryan Owen
(then Ruth Bryan), eldest daugh-
ter of "The Great Commoner," was
growing famous in her own individ-
ual way. She had the largest col-
lection of both M'cKinley and Bry-
an campaign buttons of any child
in the entire county!
Today she is Ruth Bryan Owen,
the first woman to be elected to
Congress from the 13 states of the
old South, and the first woman to
change the general idea that the
state of Florida would not tolerate
women in public office.
As a girl in college in Nebraska,
she was long-distance running
champion. In Jamaica, later, living
in a tiny mountain bungalow with
her husband, a subaltern in the
British army, she put on plays for
the B itish troops; and she was the
only woman allowed to play polo
with the British officers' team.
In a recent letter to The Daily,
Mrs. Owen says of women and their

Ruth Bryan Owen made only two
campaign promises to the people of
Florida: first, to visit every year
each of the 18 counties in her dis-
trict and report to them in person
not only what she has done herself
but the whole political trend of the
Congressional year in Washington;
and second, to take two young peo-
ple from each county each year
to Washington, to show them all
the workings of the federal govern-
ment, to build up in the com-
ing generation of voters a sense
of their powers and responsibilities

"Women who are interested in1
science have an opportunity to go
into museum work as well as teach-
ing," is the opinion of Miss Cry-
stal Thompson, curator of the de-
partment of visual education of the
University Museums. Miss Thomp-
son started work at the MuseumE
when it was in the building now
used for romance languages, and
when there were only four others
on the Museum staff; Dr. Alexander
Ruthven, director of the University
Museums, N. A. Wood, curator of
birds, Helen Thompson Gaige, and
their secretary. She went to Am-
herst College in 1918 to organize a
teaching Museum and returned to
the University Museums two years
"Any woman who wants to go
into the work should have a gen-
eral college education," she states,
"with a knowledge of Greek and La-
tin, and a reading knowledge of
French and German, and of course
considerable science , as a back-
"For a woman who has enough
interest in the work to learn things,
one who has initiative and imagin-
ation, there is opportunity along
many lines, as museum work is a
most varied kind of profession,"
she added.
Of the 35 members on the staff
of the museum (not including those
doing clerical work) 14 are women,'
almost half of the total number.
They are in the various depart-
ments. Seven are working in the
museum of zoology, four in the
University herbarium, and one each
in the museum of classical archeo-
logy and the museum of anthropo-

logy. Also one of the artists in
the museum of zoology is a wo-
man. There would also be places
for women interested in any other
line of museum work.
Miss Thompson, as curator of theI
department of visual education, has
charge of all the exhibits in the
University Museums. She attempts
to correlate these exhibits in the
various museums, so that they may
be a part of the general unified
Museum plan. Besides this, she is
directly responsible for the exhi-
bits in the museum of zoology.
All women on the campus may
avail themselves of the open hour
for swimming from 7 to 9:30 each
Tuesday and Thursday night in the
Union pool. A preliminary heart
and lung examination is necessary.
