ISlrs. Lisenby Says Idea! Woman
Mrs. Lisenby said in her talk Fri-
day, "Though rare, the ideal woman
does exist, as surely as the prize man.'.' .
She explained the qualifications and
characteristics of this ideal woman >11
the following words: j
"First, she must have the> heritage
of birth which will give her a strong,
sound physiAl body and a clear brain.
Even then the Ideal Woman cannot
develop from just any baby girl or
just any little girl of ten or twelve
years, or just any young woman.of
fourteen or fifteen years. Given the
physical heritage, environment and
training must be taken into account.
The Ideal Woman must know what
life requires her to know—she must
love knowledge. She must be able to
do what life requires her to do,—she
must have skill. She must have a
love for the beautiful—an aesthetic
taste; she must have a deep moral
sense—a love for the good."
She Challenges Students.
She made this challenge to the stu-
dents: "You college girls have in
your keeping the woman you are go-
ing to be—your After-Selves. Fif-
teen, twenty, twenty-five years from
now are you going to turn over to
her, that Woman-you-ought-to-be, a
body fine and strong, a. brain clear
and active, that, she may proudly
take her place in the sun?"
