Bailey ot Cornell University addressed the Women's Congress Wednesday afternoon oil "Th-ft Woman's Para in the Country Life -as follows: "The most important thing I shall say this afternoon is that it takes two {persons to make a family, one man an-'I one "woman." The ofliciency of: Khis .home depends on eo-operatioii.j Equal efficiency means equal oppor- institutional opportun-'' ity. "Educational progress for women must not, necessarily be like that for man, quite die contrary in fact. Homo and farm are different ends or sides of one co-operative business. Educa- tion ot farm women should be dis- cussed with the same thoroughness that wo "so in discussing the educa- tion of farm men.

"Days for Lnrining women in ac-j emnplisliments Imvo past." I Dr. Bailey then enumerated several things to be accomplished in tin? train- ing of women. First they must he trained so as to escape the small range of conversation, not because it is wicked to gossip but because it represents a narrow life. Second they must obtain a different attitude toward personal apparel. Art- ists in the making of women's gar- ments should set the styles instead of commercial houses, wlio design them to make money. Thirdly, they should tnvnxime the common notion of the right to be en- should bo resource- ful. woman should discover and use means to improve'her undisputed sphere and not adopt man's sphere. In other 'words, to put. ii very lideily, "Educate all women in HM-HIS of their daily lives."
