Edited and Managed by uWOMANS ENTERblisher: Progressive W~omen .nM atti e B. M cG rath Volume Volume I ATON ROUGE, LOUISIANA, FRIDAY. JULY 2 1921b 1 THE WOMAN'S CLUB, INC. By Mildred M. Waterman, Secretary A building owned exclusively by women and women's clubs and used exclusively for women's activities, is the boast of but few places in Louisi ana. That Baton Rouge is one is a matter of pride with the women of the capital city. Long years ago, it is said, a big business man brought a ways and means discussion to a head by declar ing that "the best way to do a thing is to do it." In 1918, the American doughboy phrased the idea in his own way when he gave the world the now famous battle cry, "Let's go!"' So many things have happened, so many things have changed, since the beginning of the world war that 1912 seems like "way back yonder." So way back yonder a few Baton Rouge women had the prophetic vision, and most of them are today a part of the realization, of a woman's clubhouse t...

The Business Woman By VALLIE M. SEITZ. It is an admitted fact, even though it does come reluctantly from a great many sources, that woman has won success in the business world. That she is a factor is a fact not tob lightly scoffed at, and the critics unm, unbelievers realize that the foothold she has gained is not merely for the present. Through knowledge and ex perience she has firmly entrenched herself, not for today or tomorrow but for all time. Women are in busi ness to stay, and each year the num ber increases above the proportion of - population increase. Her success has not been lightly won however. On the contrary it is the result of travail of body and mind and opportunity and a million other things-but the sacrifices have cul minated in her independence, and therefore have not been in vain. Various versions have been ad vanced as to woman's entrance into the business field. The following ten are supposed to cover any excuses she might have to offer: (1) Women have no priv...

WOMAN'S ENTERPRISE Published in the Interest of the Club Women of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. FRIDAY, JULY 22, 1921. OUR MISSION. Enjoying a status not heretofore accorded them, participating to the fullest extent in the activities of life and laboring earnestly for the economic, moral, social and political uplift of the communi ty, the women of Baton Rouge consider the time opportune in which to launch a free and untrameled newspaper to express their views on all public questions. That there is a field for the venture , without trespassing upon the pastures of the daily and weekly pa pers there is slight doubt and in a spirit of good will towards all it is the determination of the women of Baton Rouge to prove to the world that women are as fully alive to the demands of the times as are they of the sterner sex, and with this understanding present i to the public the first issue of the Women's Enterprise, which is to t be published monthly and to be edited, published and managed en- t t...

WHAT WOMEN CAN ACCOMPLISH. I Within two months from the first mention of the necessity of securing a proper building for the several societies composing the Association of Clubs, that organization has not only secured a hand some byilding on a handsome Boulevard but has made a substan tial payinent on the same. Now, with no wish to make invidious distinctions, the Enter- i prise cannot refrain from giving our ladies credit in a matter in which men folks have totally failed. Since childhood we have t been hearing our men folks discuss the economy and convenience t of owning their own lodge buildings and at the same time aiding in a the upbuilding of the city, but so far as carrying their ideas into t effect we fail to see that as much as a single brick or piece of lum- P ber has yete been purchased for such purposes. Perhaps the ex ample set by the women of the Association of City Clubs may stim- a ulate the membership of the lodges and cause greater effort. Our n women have proven a...

A Plea t les: str By KATHERINE ,I. HILL. me Sir Arthur Quiller Couch, noted tiv; English novelist, versifler and lectuer, d i said not long ago, in a lecture to the Col students of Cambridge University: I "I have often wished that some more the winning names could be found for the fut thing we call Education, and I have we sometimes thought wistfully that, had pie we made a better thing of it, we should so long ago have found more amiable, a spo blither name." We I believe most thinking people will be agree with the insinuation in this quo- wh: tation that we have not yet made a dre truly successful thing of the "thing we tior call Education," but at least more and woi more thoughtful consideration is being of given to this important subject, and the surely the future holds among its ace mysteries the solution of the prob- shy lem. However that may be it is cer- fur tain that in our own Louisiana, inter- tim est in education has been growing in a t leaps and bounds, and it has latel...

RAY DIDN'T ACT. But Just Lived Boyhood Over Again Charles Ray plays the part of Ezra, i the lovable carefree barefoot boy is t "The Old Swimmin' Hole," the First National feature attraction at the 1 Louisiana Theatre Sunday and Mon. c day. "I do hot act it," says Ray, "I C simply lve over again many scenes of my vn boyhood. It seems only yesterday that I was going down the meadow path to the old creek back home on the farm where I was raised. And the little red schoolhouse on the hill came back to me as viidly as if I was still making life a burden to the teacher." Ray, the critics declare, achieves the true artist's goal in playing wi ;li such naturalness and ease that the. result is so realistic an impersonation of Ezra that the boy will be remem-. bered as a real person rather than a screen creation inspired by James Whitcomb Riley's poem. Mr. Ray was asked for his views on the char n acter of Ezra and the chief incidents i, in the story of his trails and tribula s Itions. He is ...

The Housewives' League An Organization That Has Performed Wonders in the Way of Reducing Exhorbitant Prices of Necessaries of Life. The Housewives' League of Baton Rouge, was organized December 9, 1916, Mrs. Mloise being the first presi dent. The object of the League is to "investigate and devise means to im prove living conditions, and to reduce the high cost of living." Our first work was to encourage and educate all housewives to insist on correct weights and measures; to personally superin tend the marketing and not depend on servants or the 'phone. The thing that first brought us to public notice was our fight with the Gas Company. After a sweeping in vestigation of conditions, conducted by members of our League, and tests made by the head of our Chemistry Department and his assistants at the L. S. U., we found the gas being fur nished in no way met the require ments of the standard heat unit. We found also that the company was filing reports at the Bureau of Standards, at Wash...

Association of City Clubs The forming of a club out of the various women's clubs of Baton Rouge has been discussed for several y ears. in clubs and out, the Civic Association doing so formally as far back as when it held its meetings in the Alumni building, Mrs. L. U. Babin president, and the Housewives League in 1920 during its December meeting held at the house of its president, Mrs. J. A. Tucker. At this meeting it was de eided to ask the Civic Association to send out invitations to the presidents and two delegates each from the four clubs in town then federated in the State Federation to meet in a con ference looking toward this. The clubs asked were the Philistoria, the Housewives League, the League of Women voters and the Civic Associa tion. These letters were sent out by Miss Daisy Badley, secretary of the Civic Association, and the meeting was held in the Chamber of Com merce Jan. 3, 1921. Mrs. Steinberg was made chairman, and Mrs. J.

S.. STORY FOR BOYS . (By Virginia Bransford). 1 Way out in Oklahoma the sun beat a down on the bare head of Sarah Rol- 1 lins, as she drove her little biddiesh to a cool shelter. Sarah loved all little things; her heart yearned with a longing for a little child, and Dan Rollns, her hus band, never spoke of little children in her presence, for he did not like to see the far away look in her wistful eyes when he did; no little one had O .ne to bless this humble home, and %irah's heart was sad because of it. Bye and bye the clouds began to t gather, and rain drops fell, but in stead of getting cooler, it became close I1 and hot, mutterings of thunder filled I the air, green clouds formed in the i northwest, and lightning in vivid I flashes played back and forth along the sky. Dan, knowing how Sarah dreaded these sudden storms, took his horses 1 to shelter, and went home. He I stopped to exmaine the door of the storm pit as he passed it, and tried a to put on a cheery look as came in I ...
