a Not to MOT-“Con- gressmen cor Them to th By MILDRED MORRIS ® (By International News Barvice.) \Washington April 1.-Alice Robert on, Oklahoma's woman member of Congress, today gave her impressions of \the cigarette smoking women of the east\ with their rouge and knee akirts. When it was suggested that they proved a bit of w shock to. a citizen of the \cow country,\ she said calmly: \You can see plenty of women in the Southwest with rouge and skirts short» er than they ought to be. Some of them use 'even more rouge than the women in Washington and New York. The people out there aren't going to let the east get ahead of them in any- thing if they can help it. \If the up-to-date skirt had - more width and a little more length, it would be -senglble. #I don't call these extreme styles, with the bodice cut too low and the skirt too high, immoral, If they were immoral, they'd attract the men, but they don't. They disgust them. Weo- men dress that way not to attract the men, but to get ahead of one-another, \Maybe you've noticed that it's the women with the scrawniest necks and legs who wear the lowest waists and shortest skirts,\ observed the con- gresswoman,\ \The first time I saw women smok- dng was in New York while I was stay» Ing at the National Arts Club, It was interesting. If women want to smoke, that's their business, They don't hurt anyone but themselves. The men think it's disgusting.\ Sitting back in a comfortable chair In her office in the capitol, \Miss Alice,\ who gives promise of being am popular in Washington as in her home town, Muskogee, gave advice to wives, described the woman lobbyist as \something to be pitied,\ voiced dis- approval of the League of Women Voters and declared. the Shepherd Towner maternity bill \bolshevistic'* in some of its features. \The wife is usually to blame when the home is lmhnppy.\ she said. \May- be she cooks badly or lies around in a moiled kimona instead of dressing up nd looking as pretty as she used to be. Courtship is like hunting or fishing. After the game is caught, the zest is gome, The woman makes the environ: ment of the home and it's up to her to hold the interest of the man. \The dangerous time comes when the man begins to acquire money, 'When 130 takes a trip the wife who is wite feaves the children with some one else und trots along with him. If she keeps wp her complexion and dresses as at- tractively as possible he won't go trot» ting after some pretty girl on the ou8 gide.\ The \Lady From Oklahoma\ an- mwered the feminists who are shocked by her \old fashioned views.\ \I represent the conservative wom- an who would rather cook a good meal - than meddle with politics,\ she said. aa 16 use the return envelope sent ont . \The woman who stays in the kitch- en accomplishes more with the men than the woman who goes around lobbying. 'The average woman in the United States wasn't interested in politics un- til she got the vote, The average wom- iin didn't care anything about the vote. If she had, she'd have got it long be- fore she did. ~. \T don't bellevs In antagonizing the men. 'The League of Women Voters, in effect, says that if the men who make our laws will not make the kind of ~Inwis they: want, \they will- throw stones at them, acting like children, and call them names. \L am opposed to the Shepherd Towner bill. It bas paternalistic fea- tures which are bolshevistic and I hink it's faulty 'in construction, It would create. many jobs for women and give them powers they may not be qualified to fill , \I don't want any one to think that I'm not loyal to women. 1 am loyal to them, I'm a woman's woman, but now Jts m 50-50 proposition 'with me. I was elected to represent both the-men and women of Oklahoma.\ Askbd 'what she planned to \do\ to her male colleagues in Congreas, \Mis Allo\ answered with h twinkle in her even: \Well I don't intend h feed them soup or talk them. to death.\ Se ESTION OF COST b OF TICKETS EXPLAINED Rockville Centre, April. 11.-Sam Ellis, chairman of the committee arranging for | The 'benoft ' performance {of - ''The 'Wonder Man,\ to be given nt the Rook ville Contre Theatre tomorrow. after- floon and evening, April 12, in answer to atmeroun inquiries That have been mide rogurding the price of ndmiamion, Une tmok of the different shows and The seating arrangements, says: \The price of admission will be 36 «ante, or thras tickets for ome dollar.
