Madeline initiated a fight against the Salvation Army, began to edit the new “Woman's Page” in the Sunday edition of the Herald, and started a crusade against tuberculosis, while continuing her support for the Civic League, Associated Charities, the Kentucky Federation of Women's Clubs, the burgeoning parks and playgrounds system, school suffrage, and education improvements. In spite of these activities, she and Desha maintained a very active social life, entertaining friends and relatives and attending teas, plays, and other events.
