Household Exposition Will Open a Registry Bureau.

New York Times,
January 30, 1916

War orphans for adoption will be one of the features of the Home Conference and Household Exposition which is to open in Madison Square Garden this week, but the orphans themselves will not be on exhibition. Instead there will be a registry bureau and any person with a warm heart wishing to share it with a child can put down the name and address and Judge Ben Lindsey ls expected to arrange to send over the orphans later. The $10,000,000 for which Judge Lindsey has appealed, ln behalf of the children war sufferers, the Exposition people think will put 1,000,000 children in the way of being adopted.

Something definite it is expected will also be done during the exposition toward bringing over refugees to fill the need for domestlcs in America. In connection with the servant problem, prizes will be offered for both men and maid servants who have remained for long periods with one family.

Every phase of home life will be considered at the exposition, from cooking, marketing. and motherlng the children, to eugenies and birth control. There will be exhibitions of household goods and furnishings, and talks on weights and measures. Mrs. Woodrow Wilson has been asked to open the  Conference and Exposition.
