Miaa Milholland Receptive.
Miss Inez Milholland Is the youngest
of the women the DOW Sheriff picked out.
and she haa occasionally been pointed
out as one of the star proofs that a girl
can be handsome though a suffragist.
Iflaa Milholland, however, has looked at
life seriously sime before she entered
Vassar, and she looks at lt even more
Seriously now that she Is a law student
In New York University.
"Why, of course," she said, instantly,
"I think a woman should always be
ready to perform any civic duty for
which she Is fitted. That doesn't mean
that I shall go to Sheriff Harburger and
offer to serv*? as deputy. In fact, I am
not entirely familiar with the duties of
a deputy sheriff. There are some things
a woman can do better than a man In
public life, Just as there are things a
man can do better than a woman. There
certainly ought to be some women on the,
police force. I don't know enough about
a deputy sheriff's work to know whether
women are needed there, but If they are
I should bo ready to serve, provided lt
didn't Interfere with my own particular
