To close our year 's " talks" I think it wo uld be a fine thing for all of us to ad opt Mary Stewart's, "A Collect for All Women" as a standard toward true womanlines : " Keep us, 0 God, from pettiness; let us be large in thought, in word, in deed. Let us be done with fault-findin g and leave off selfseek-

Let us take t ime for all thing ; make u to grow calm, serene, gentle. Teach us to put into action our better impul ses, straight forward and unafraid. Gran t that we may reali ze it i the li ttle thin g that create differences; that in the big thing of li fe we are as one. nd may we trive to touch and to k now the great common hum an heart of us all ; and, 0 Lord God, let u fo rget not to be kind. "
