Thursday was a day of thrilling in-
cidents in the sessions of the biennial
convention of the State Federation of

J. L: Kelly, blacksmith, 423 N. Pe-

tainly recommend Doan’s Kidney Pills
as a relable kidney medicine. They
brought me relief from backache aDd

advise anyone suffering from this com-
plaint to go to the Pioneer Drug store

ed effort of Mrs. Percy V. Pennyback-
Mrs. Tom Hope of Ada, who is mak
ing her home temporarily In Oklahoma
City, was elected president on the
third ballot. Some confusion was oc-
casioned in the convention by reason
of the various nominees vieing with
each other in an effort to withdraw
in favor of their opponents. Mrs.
Eugene l^awson of Nowata received
the greatest number of votes on the
first ballot, which stood 80 for the
candidate from the hostess city, 73 for
Mrs. Hope and 17 for Mrs. M. F.
Early of Muskogee. It was with con-
siderable difficulty that Mrs. Lawson
and her friends succeeded in with-
drawing her name from the envention
She persisted, however, and even re-
fused to accept the office of vice presi-
dent at large, which fell to Mrs Ear-
Other state offjeers elected were:
Mrs. H. Coulter Todd, Oklahoma City
genera] federation secretary; Miss
Elisabeth W. Boyle of Enid, re-elected
recording secretary; Mrs. R. K. Woot-
en of Chickasha, treasurer; Mrs. E.
B. Bender, Nowata, auditor; Mrs. E.
L. McCain, Pawhuska, parliamentarian
A ballot was taken to select twenty-
two delegates and alternates to the
national biennial in New York next
June, the result to be counted and an-
nouced Friday moring.
An Important revision In the consti-
tution will admit the various depart-
ments of departments clubs to have re-
presentation in district and state con-
vention, provided those departments
Join the federation and pay dues.
Five resolutions brought before the
house were referred to the resolutions
committee. These recommended the
creation of a state library commission
a stricter observance of 'tkiavantlne
laws; that only physicians be invited
to address clubs on subjects pertain-
ing to public health; that city coun-
cils in cities not having boards of
health be petitioned to pass stringent
ordinances to keep such cities clean;
and that a state censorship of moving
pictures be established.
Mrs. Wooten of Chickasha, intense-
ly in earnest, made a plea for the es-
talbishment of a state endowment
fund for the purpose of meeting nec-
essary expenses of federation work,
which heretofore have been paid out
of the pockets of individual officers.
When she proposed that the federation
create a fund of $25,000 to be paid in
pledges, maturing in one, two, three
and four years, something like a sen-
sation was created.
"Don't let us try to walk before we
can crawl,” objected Mrs. Phil Brown
of Muskogee, who nevertheless was
the first to pledge $5, and later in the
afternoon made a second subscrip-
tion in the name of her children.
‘‘1 am the mother of eight children,
and five of them never had to crawl,”
retorted Mrs. Wooten.
So the convention decided to start
out and walk at once.
Led by Mrs. Pennybacker whose en-
thusiasm was absolutely contagious,
pledges were made faster than three
secretaries could record them. These
were made by clubs and individuals,
the largest single subscription of $50
being contributed by Mrs. Lawson,
who throughout the convention has in-
variably done the handsome thing. As
the tide of feeling rose, mother’s gave
money in the names of their children,
grandmothers for theis grandchildren.
Two women who had neither, made
It there any better ending to a hard day’s work
on the road than a happy Bell Toll call to the
faintly? If things have broken good it’s a pleasure
to tell of it; if it’s been n slump day, here’s a way
for a re-inspiration.
A bright spot in traveling nowadays is the Bell
Toll System, which follows you wherever you go,
and is a. straight road back, whenever you wish.

contributions in tbe names of pet ani-
mals, one for a Persian cat, another
for a beloved fox terrier. The after-
noon reached its climax when Mrs.
Pennybacker begged tbe club women
to use in their work four lndespensa
ble tools in tbe profession of being
a club woman, tbe club directory, the
history of the club movement, the his-
tory of the national biennials and the
general federation magazine.
8he urged them to Bend their best
women to represent them at the bien-
nial in New York next June. Her last
word was one of earnest soliciation
that they reconsecrate themselves to
the work; that no excuse can be so
great as to justify a woman in forget-
ting that she is a gentlewoman; and
that tbe finest trait a woman can have
is charity, not only of speech and ac-
tion, but of judgment.
Following adjournment the Elks
held a reception, in their beautiful
home. The evening’s entertainment
a lecture recital by the noted Ameri-
can composer, Mrs. Jessie Gaynor and
her daughter, was the gracious gift
of Mrs. Arthur Fox McAruthur of Tul-
sa, who to the regret of all was unable
to be present.
Mrs. D. A. McDougal of Sapulpa. ex-
president of the state federation, ar-
rived during the morning and was ac-
corded an enthusiastic welcome.
"Presidents’ Evening,’’ observed on
Wednesday, was one to delight every
person in the large audience that filled
the Methodist church and to minister
tbe deepest needs of both men and
women. It was an evening of inspira-
tion and encouragement marked by
many expressions of good fellowship
and lively intelligence, an evening
rich in the exchange of ideas and one
to foster a spirit of pure democracy
without respect to sex, class or age.
Four presidents took their places on
the program. Mrs. Pennybacker, Mrs.
Hume, Mrs. W. D. Atkinson of the
Kansas federation, who arrived just
in time to make a deiighful talk, and
Mrs. John Threadgill, past-president
ot the Oklahoma federation.
Mrs. Atkinson who comes from a
state where women have the ballot,
declared that politics are not separate
from home and babies, and that tbe
women of Kansas have been able to
cast an occasional vote without neg-
lect of their family. She called atten-
tion to the rapid change in public op-
inion in regard to suffrage within the
past few years. Two years ago a
woman suffrage parade through the
streets of New York was received
with derision, one year ago it was re-’
ceived with respect, a few days ago
the suffrage pageant received an ova-
Out of the wealth of her wisdom,
Mrs. Pennybacker gave lavishly in her
address on “The Development of the
Federation Spirit,” a sermon applica-
ble to every phase of work and exis-
tence, as well as to the activities of
women's clubs. Mrs. Pennybacker
named three characteristics in which
the federation needs to improve; in
efficiency, in loyality and in a vision
of things of the future." The first step
for women to take in efficiency is not
to act emotionally before informing
themselves intellectually. Investigate
eliminate, concentrate, should be the
watchwords of the club woman,” she
said. She urged her hearers to co-op-
erate, saying ' there is work for all
and all are needed In the federation,
from all the richest to the poorest,
the h'.gK to the lowest."
h' TV "nybacker professed a par-
t' de n to foster co-operation
between men and women. “It
me sad," she said, “to read iix
or private of one sex arrayed agais
the other. Every rising tendency

nybacker pleaded for greater
uity, for a greater sanity in all &i

of humor. "Every club woman:

She begged women to look for
good in each other and she r<
