The lecture was highly instructive and much enjoyed by the' listeners. fr * * An interested audience listened to Dr. Detwiller's address given yesterday in the Baptist church. Dr. Dei-willer spoke on "Women's part in Social Reform Work," and made an appeal to mothers to take up the work of prevention rather than cure, emphasizing the fact that the work must begin in the home. She spoke of the importance of home training and hoped that in the future rescue' homes would not be necessary. Several members of outside churches were present. j Mrs. Ormsby, Ontario Reform Leader, Talks to Local Organizations Washington, April 12.- Warnings of a new policy of intrigue, far overshadowing Zimmerman's efforts to embroil Mexico and Japan with the United States and designed to cause a demoralization in the allied countries similar to that in Russia was given to the national conference of American. lec: tures here yesterday,by Wm. English Walling of,New York. Declaring that the recent inter-allied labor conference at London has for its real purpose the arranging of an in-tevnational Socialistic conference ' to which Gorman Socialists would be invited. Mr. Walling vigorously attacked the Socialists of the allied nations. He asserted that their purpose is to bring about a peace of their own dictation and that unless their efforts are frustrated the "democratically olected governments of Prance, England and America might as well as abdicate." That .Mrs. Ormsby has (he highest c.t ideal.'! i'cr Cunudinn women w'.'i'i clear!/ evidenced iu the splendid address that she gave, before the Women's Auxiliary yesterday afternoon. She expressed herself as delighted with the. expansive west with its corresponding broad thought and complimented Alberta as being the first. Province to give its women political freedom. Mrs. Ormsby objects to the idea that the franchise has been given to the women for their great war work which was their patriotic duty and claims that, they do not .wish their pay in franchise but. that. it. is their natural right. The women have no desire to "show" the men, but beliflpc in mutual help. Airs. Orms'by emphasized the fact that a high standard must be set, to enable womanhood to become true citizens and to use the franchise properly. She does not believe that they should be banded into a political party but. should throw themselves on the side, of right. Tiie speaker mentioned the fact that people are watching to see what women nil! do in this movement and how they are coming up to the expectations. She cited many of (he spk-ndid women of this province such as Mrs. McClung. Mrs. McKinney, Miss Mc-Adams and Mrs. Ralph Smith, of Saskatchewan, risking the women to up-hol(L,these splendid pioneers not criticising but holdin;; the best thoughts for them.. She spoke, too, of this war as being a struggle between right and wrong rather than that of nation against nation, suggesting tHat. such a version gives a different outlook upon the situate.n. Mrs. Ormsby predicts that the war will not end until England gets rid of her liquor traffic, saying that England must realise this^ soon .She gave an example of where in one place in England enough sugar was released for the use of breweries which .would have supplied England with sugar for one month.
