A Collect for Clubwomen 

Keep us, oh God, from pettiness;
Let us be large in thought, in word, in deed.
Let us be done with fault-finding
And leave of self-seeking.
May we put away all pretense
And meet each other face to face,
Without self-pity and without prejudice.
May we never be hasty in judgment
And always generous.
Let us take time for all things;
Make us to grow calm, serene, gentle.
Teach us to put into action our better impulses,
Straightforward and unafraid.
Grant that we may realize it is
The little things that create differences,
That in the big things of life we are at one.
And may we strive to touch and to know
The great, common human heart of us all.
And, oh Lord God, let us forget not
To be kind!
-Mary Stewart
April, 1904

Junior Pledge 

I pledge my loyalty to the Junior Clubwomen
by doing better than ever before what work I have to do;
By being prompt, honest, courteous;
By living each day trying to accomplish something, not merely to exist.
- Helen Cheney Kimberly
