GIRLS FOR MOTHERHOOD
Philadelphians Believe Beqlicst
Shows Sad Pass to Whibh
Young Women Have Come
MRS. SCHAFFS OPINION
Bho Says. Homo 13 tho Best School for
Development of Right
Shades of our preserving-making, sock

What would they nay, tho old-fashioned
dean). It they but knew that three million
dollars had Just been willed for the estab
lishment of a school In which Blrls of very
tender yearn were to bo enrolled for the
purpose of being trained In the duties of
wJfeAood and motherhood?
' It Is even so, however. Tho will of Mrs.
Llulo Palmer, widow of United States Sen
ator Talmer, recently filed, provides that
three of her four millions be used for the
erection of such an Institution, "where girls
and young women of the ago of ten and
moro can be trained and developed with
special reference to fitting them mentally,
morally, physically and religiously for tho
discharge of the functions nnd servlco of
wifehood 'and motherhood and In the man
agement, supervision nnd Inspiration of
homes." In the opening paragraph of the
clause making this provision Mrs. Talmer
"I hold profoundly the conviction that the
wclfaro of nny community la Inseparably
dependent upon the quality of Its mother
hood and tho spirit and character of Its
"Doesn't tho fact that a. thinking woman
hno left three million for tho establishment
of such n school indicate that our young
women have como to a sorry pass?''- Is the
question that naturally arises. "
MKS. SCIIOFT'S VIEWS
Mrs. Frederic Schorr, president of the
National Mothers and Parent-Teachers As
sociation and director of tho Home Edu
cation Division of tho Federal Board of
Education, answered emphatically that it
"Tho girls and womon who nro leading
around dogs on strings Instead of playing
with their dolls and their own children nro
Iho ones who need such training," sho said,
"Personally, I believe," sho continued,
"that tho establishment of .such an Institu
tion may do good In a limited way, but
I stand for 'a broader education of nit tho
girls In tho United Station, It Is to that
end that tho Mothers and Parent-Teachers
Association Is working.
"ISvery normal woman Is adapted to
Wifehood and motherhood. Tho women
who chase madly after careers, who do not
Want children, havo not been trained In the
right way. A career docs not satisfy a
woman In tho long run, nndjf you analyze
closely tho work of tho women In tho world,
somo llttlo wlfo and mother quietly and In
conspicuously from the vantage point of
her own homo usually does tho most.
HOME THE BEST SCHOOL
"Tho best way to train girls for mothcr
tinn.l nml linvn fnr fatherhood 1r hv aettlnsr
LN them a good example In tho home, and by
' . tho close association of tho school and col-
lego with tho homo. Tho whole work of the
Mothers' Congress Is based on this,. theory,
and ono of tho wisest things over done was
the act of tho United States Bureau of Edu
cation In putting tho parent on tho piano
of tho educator and pointing out the broad
education necessary for the' parent to havo.
"Tho education for motherhood should be
the broadest possible kind of a one. Tho
mother If sho Is to train her own children
properly must know of things outsldo as
well as Insldo tho home, civics and politics
as well on cooking and domestlo economy.
But her domain will always bo tho home."
According to Mrs. Iludolph Blankcnbiirg,
the average marriage is Buch a hit or miss
affair, and tho modern girl usually so Ignor
ant of tho requirements of tho wlfo. and
mother, that a school for her special train
Ins Is probably a step In tho right direction.
"HANDS UP!" HE CRIES;
CONDUCTOR SWATS HIM
Ono Footpad Shoots Camden Trolley
man' Who Shows Fight Both
Harry Pew, conductor for tho Public
Service Corporation, had Just finished ar
ranging his car for tho midnight return
trip to Camden from Thirty-ninth street and
River road, when a voice behind hlrh said,
"Hands up I"
The conductor turned, thinking It a
Joke, and saw a masked man confronting
him with a revolver. Pew swung his lan
tern around and cracked tho intruder over
tho head. As the man fell another masked
burglar appeared and fired two shots. One
went through the conductor's coat, while
tho other struck a steel eyeglass caso and
glanced oft to his arm, Inflicting a Blight
flesh wound. Tho thieves then ran off.
Pew continued his trip, being 'treated by
n physician on the way to Camden, while
police started, an Investigation, as several
similar robberies havo occurred within the
last few months.

Although the contractors ore several
months behind their schedule on the work,
Iho delay has been duo almost entirely to
the failure of tho steel mills tolcllver the
steel columns on tho dates specified In the
contracts, and, considering this tho progress
Is regarded as satisfactory by tho otllclals
of the Transit Department.
Tho concrete foundations nro completed
as far north as unity street nnd FrnnK
ford avenue, or for a stretch of four nnd
three-uuartcr miles. Tho foundation con
tracts nro also behind schedule, but this
Is duo to tho delay of tho Philadelphia
ltapld Trnnslt Company In rclocntlng Its
surfaco tracks Just below Ilrldgo street
on Frankford avenue.
Tho cessation of construction work dur
ing tho winter season Is necessary on ac
count of the concrete filler which Is put In
each of the sumrort columns. The steel
could be set In place during the winter ns
well as during' tho summer, but It Is not
considered safe to'work with concrcto dur
Ing tho cold weather, nnd since tho con
crete niler cannot be put Into tho columns
nt tho steel mills beforo they nro shipped
tho deoartment was forced to order the
suspension of tho work.
The erection of the steel superstructure
was to begin April 1 of this year nnd tho
lino was to be completed 'as far as Unity
street by October 31 last. It was tho mlddlo
of April, however, before the first plcco of
steel arrived from tho mils.
The contracts which have been completed
and which are now under "way total nearly
S3.000.000. Tho lino when completed, in
eluding the prlco of real estate purchases,
will cost nearly J7,oou,ooo.
