STUDY CLUB MEETING.

Held at the Home of Mrs. D. H. Henry of Elm-wood Place.

The Elizabeth Smith Miller Study Club held a delightful meeting Monday evening at the home of Mrs. David H. Henry of Elmwood Place. Miss Ada Sandholdt rendered two very charming piano numbers, namely the “Mazurka” by Leschetizky and Chopin’s Etude, Opus 10. The Misses Erminie Yerkes and Margaret Wallace gave readings and Mrs. John E. Lansing gave a most interesting address on J Mary Lyon and the Early Days of Mt. Holyoke Seminary previous to its being made a college.

The next meeting of the club will be held Monday evening, Feb. 21st, at the home of Miss Marjorie Guilford. The subject for discussion will be ” The Improvement in the Legal Status of Women.”

The Elizabeth Smith Miller Study club met on Monday evening at the home of Mrs. David H. Henry of Elmwood place. About fourteen were in attendance. Mrs. John E. Lancing read a paper on Mary Lyon, the founder of Mt. Holyoke college. A number of musical selections were given on the piano, by Miss Ada p Sandholt. Miss Francis Eddy, president of the club, presided. Mrs. H. Lynn Henry gave a talk on “the Benefit of College Education” and “Woman’s Suffrage.” Several articles were also read by different members of the club. Selections were read from the biography of Mrs. Alice Freeman Palmer, former president of Wellesley, showing that education does not tend to unfit a woman for the duties of housekeeping and Mrs. Palmer was cited as an instance of how although a teacher and president of a college, a woman can also be an ideal house-its success.
