The Lincoln Club is a debating-society of young men, 
whose occasional public debates are always heard by a 
large and enthusiastic audience. In their weekly meet- 
ing they have a carefully prepared debate, usually upon 
current political events. They meet once a month with 
the Hull-House Social Club. This is composed of young 
women of the neighborhood, many of whom have met 
every week for four years. Their programmes are liter- 
ary and social. They give an occasional play. The last 
one presented was the court scene from the " Merchant 
of Venice." 
Among the other clubs of young people, the Young 
Citizens boasts the oldest club-life. Their programmes 
alternate between discussions and readings. An effort 
is made in both for civic and municipal education. 
The Anfreda Club of thirty young girls meets the 
same evening. After the literary programme is con- 
cluded, the two clubs have half an hour of dancing or 
games together before going home.
