Ewing During her many years in politics , the question most frequently asked of Genevieve Earle , reti red minority leader of the New York City council , was whether or not she found it a disadvantage to be the only woman among men. Speaking before the Fireplace 1 ! Literary club last Wednesday at the Brookhave n library, Mrs. Earl e said it was her firm conviction that a woman in public life has many ad- vantages , but she also has a tre- mendous responsibility. The main advantage comes fro m the fact that one woman among the few in poli- tics receives much more publicity, and for that very reason has to be correspondingly more careful in or- der not to reflect on women in gen- eral. The white light of publicity which beats upon a woman in pub- lic life is deplorable , but necessary, she said , and a friendly press can be a great asset. During the 31 years which she spent in public life , Mrs. Earle said much distinction and hono r had been conferred upon her by men and she considered this a very significant fact. Although she was in politics for many years , Mrs . Earle did not consider herself a \ politician ,\ but an independent. \Government , \ Mrs. Earle con- tinued , \ was always a magnet to me. Government is a group enter- prise—an effort to get something done for the good of all. Govern- ment is the biggest power in our l ives , outside our family and church . Considering the fact that 12 cents of every dollar we spend goes to the government , it behooves us all to see that it is spent as effectively and constructively as possible. \Politics is the science of govern- ment and the means of harnessing this great power for the good of the community. Government can only give service , and if enough public opinion is expressed , things can be accomplished. \ Mrs . Earle then sketched briefly her experiences from 1935 , when she was asked by Mayor La Guardia to serve on the Charter Revision committee. She accepted this post and for two years worked as the only woman with eight men , in drawing up a new charter for the City of New York . When this was adopted , it created a new city coun- cil to replace the out-dated board of aldermen. She then ran as an independent among 99 candidates , and of the nine members elected , she was the only woman. This resulted in an undue amount of publicity and in- terviews in which the press tried vainly to picture her as a domestic type of woman, whereas in reality, she was much more of a sports- woman. Among the humorous incidents which Mrs. Earle related was one in which a young reporter diffidentl y asked her age . As he was rather facetious about it , she replied that she was \ as old as the Brooklyn bridge and in much better condi- tion. \ However , she was not prepar- ed for the resulting headlines which described her as being coy about her age. Mrs . Enrle recalled a piece of ad- vice fro m former Mayo r Fiorello La Guardia , which was that she must learn to be tough in order to resist pressure which would be brought to bear upon her to vote for various increases in spending, and to al- way s remember that they were spending other people ' s money. Mr. La Guardia also told her \ when one woman fails , all women fail. \ Mrs. Earle was reelected to the City conncil five times , but last year she felt that she would have to re- tire because of a broken hip. Her 15 years as a public official had been exciting, stimulating and re- warding, she said and she was deep- ly moved and touched by the flatter- ing editorials which were published regarding her career. However , she now finds that fac- ing retirement pre sents a problem that is not easy to solve and re- quires an adjustment that is difficult to make. Stephan Leacock , she said , likened retirement to \ a late autumn afternoon , when the leaves are gone , a cold wind is blowing and the day is gone befo re you know it. \ But Mrs. Earle proved her sense of hu- mor by ending on a lighter note with the word s of Don Marquis , \There ' s a dance or two before I' m through , there ' s a dance in the old dame yet!\ At the business meeting preceding the program , Mrs . Thomas H. John- son , local chairman for the Marc h of Dimes , made a plea for contribu- tions to combat polio. Mrs. Edna Ross , artist , and a member of the club , offered one of her paintings , which will be auctioned off at the March meeting. At the close of Mrs. Earle ' s talk , tea was served by the hostesses , Mrs. George P. Morse , Miss Eileen Hermann , Mrs. Emery L. Van Horn and Mrs. John J. Amory.

The building being put up on Main street by Mr. Taylor is to be occupied as a barber shop. Speaking of the bread line , Elbert Hubbard , the lecturer , is a great patron of restaurants and hotels. He says he bought a hat throe years ago for $3 and he figure s that the same hat cost him nearly $300 for the tips and hold-ups of the various hat snatchers he has met in his travels around the country. Abe Martin , speaking of the same petty larceny imposition says: \I may be old-fashioned but when a fellow spends two or three dollars in a restaurant it seems as though he ought ' er git his hat back without paying for it. \ Principal Rollings was given a surprise party by the pupils of the academic department last Friday night.
