- Predictions to Cone - 1996 Little did our Federated clubwonen of 1896 drean that their program would be broadcasted over the air by radio in 1946 or did they? lany of the advancements they were working toward have cone about by hard work, such as sanitary conditions, to-day we have garbage collections,the streets are cleaned by the city and we have "no nore outside toilets" in the city Units. Our woien sponsored the Pure Food Law. To-day we have a county Health Clinic in Burlington and three large hospitals with Nurse training schools. A group of woien are working on a "Cancer Cure urive" and we hope to have a place for this in the-Clinic. The City Federation of Woien's clubs in Turlington disbanded nany years ,■■ ago and the individual study clubs in the county affiliated with the State Federation, they found there was strength in nunbers. How could the wonen of 1896 know that we would pass thru two "orld Wars and thus advance "onen's Rights? The wonan of to-day has an entirely different outlook on life than did her sister of 1896. Wars nade it necessary that she leave the shelter of her hone and work side by side with nen in factories. Naturally the Hoae had to suffer. Aiding cane the autonobile and the Airplane naking us closer neighbors at hoie and abroad. Our clubs have exchange Scholarships with the Latin A-nerican countries and hope to have sone with Russia in the near future. "The ^ood Neighbor Policy. ' In our own state we have a Scholarship and Loan department for our girls. With the autonobile cane new roads and highways cutting down the fine trees and shrubbery, so now we nust find places for the birds and wild life. Wonen are working toward reforesting and planning parks. With the new roads n has brought the town and country wonan closer together and with the scarsity of food during the war the town and country wonen cooperated and wonen had to learn about Nutrition,each county had a Set-up and Lecturers were sent out over the state. Out of the Iowa study club's exhibit of -'Turlington in the early day of 1833 to 1845 at the state Fair when Iowa celebrated her hundredth year,grew th the Des koines county Historical Society with hopes that we will be able to have an annex to the Public Library for a luseun. Fron cultural studies our wonen have taken up the study of present day problens of course they do not neglect the Fine Arts.Religion has been a question where should it be taught..in the hone in the school or in the church...what will be the outcone? Since wonen have voted there is a Legislative dept. in the clubs,wonen study the Bills and thru Social Welfare they are working to have better laws governing our state Institutions. The Child of to-day is the Adult of tonorrow so wonen are trying to help the less fortunate boy and girl.We have five Youth Centers in Burlington for Recreation where the young people nay go for entertalnnent.Iuch is being said about Youth Conservation ...will these Centers help Delinquency???? - There is nuch stress put on the Anerican Hone life to-day....it seen hone is a place to go when you have no place else to go or just a place to sleep. We need nore hone life in Anerica. Wonen now feel they should be given responsibile public offices in politics, .ten say wonen have a good general idea of things but are not trained in any special departnent. So ny prediction is that in fifty years you will bee "onen holding high political office of responsibility, for by that tine she will have attained her Equal Rights.
