noon, enabling the announcement of the
result of the election this afternoon.
Delegates to the D. A. R. congress got
bo tangled tip over the voting for vice
president general yesterday tnat sugges
tion was made on tbe floor that the only
way to bring order out of the chaos was
to send up the police and one Daughter
doubted If even that would hae the de
Use Voting Machines.
Voting machines had been Installed as
offering a. possible Improvement over the
methods of last year when the election
returns were not obtained for more than
twenty-four hours after the polls closed,
Announcement concerning the machines
had been made- from the platform and
delegates were told that while it would be
better to vote by States, they might ote
any time after the polls opened. Long
before the polls opened Daughters began
gathering in tne corridor outside the bal
lotting place, the result being a Jam.
Mrs. William Cummlngs Story, of New
Tort, suggested that the trouble arose
because the Daughters did not know
what was expected of them and that the
polls should be closed until the matter
was made clear. The polls were closed.
a strong voiced Daughter explained In
detail and then the lam dissolved.
The administration put out a straight
ticket, the names of those indorsed hav
ing been printed on slips of paper and
circulated through the halt The Story
people, however, shrewdly denied that
, they had any ticket, declaring that indi
vidually they would vote for the best
woman for the office.
Hott Administration Ltaea Up,
The administration party had the fol
lowing ticket for ten vice presidents gen
eral in the field: Mrs. La Verne Noyes,
of Illinois: Mrs. Andrew K. Gault, of Ne
braska; Mrs. George S. Shackelford, of
Virginia: Mrs. William Llbbey. of New
Jersey: Mrs. R. M. Bratton, of. South Car

Mrs. Chants II. Bond, of Massachusetts,
Mrs. William XAwson Peel, of Ceorrla:
Mrs. Chalmers M. Williamson, of Missis
sippi, and Mrs. W. H. Crosby, of Wis
The nominees for vice presidents gen
eral whose names are not on the ad
ministration ticket, were Mrs. George M.
Mlflor. of Connecticut: Mrs. John 8.
"Wood, of New Tork: Mrs. J. U. Hetch
er. of .Florida, and Mrs. Cunningham,
The administration candidates tor hon
orary vie presidents general were Mrs.
Charles H. Deere, of Illinois, and Mrs.
John R. Walker, of, Missouri.
Mrs. Julius C. Burrows, of Michigan,
was a nominee for honorary vice presi
dent general, not on tne administration
Jt seems safe to state that If the ticket
which Is regarded aa the antl-admloU-tratlon
ticket elects the-majority of Its
candidates, those who are regarded as
adherents of Mrs. Scott will be defeated
next year. ?,'
In her report as chairman of the com
mittee to prevent desecration of tbe

twenty-nine States have enacted- laws
to protect the flag from desecration.

my answer. I say no reflecting woman
can but feel that it Is because we are
women and have no votes that we are
put aside by fair promises, like little

"Of course, one of the most Important
designs Is that th flag shall not bo used
as a trade-mark or for business advertise

by his Influential constituency that such

At this Juncture a large number of
delegates from New York Bute lelt tne
hall ostensibly for the purpose to cast
their votes. Much confusion ensued.
and Mr Scott caused the announcement
that the States would be called as they
were wanted at the polls, and that the
delegates should remain seated until
then. This restored some semblance of
order. Mrs. William Cummlngs Story
wanted to know whether the delegates
were obliged to vote for those whose
names appeared printed on the ballot.
Mrs. Scott Inrormed Mrs. Story that the
delegates could vote for whomever they
chose, and for as many as they wished.
The report of the committee on con
serration, Mrs. James W. Pinchot,
chairman, was read in her absence by
Mrs. Carl VroCman, a. daughter Of Mrs.
Scott. The report requested the co
operation of the Daughters to prevent
the pollution of streams.
Mrs. Vrooman read that her committee
was doing everything In Its power to
induce Congress to put back into the
agricultural appropriation bill an ap
propriation of 11.000.000, which was with
held this year from tho Forest Service.
She said that gigantic forces were at
work grasping the public's mineral and
timber lands, and requested the Daugh
ters to take a keen interest In all ques
tions concerning conservation.
A motion made by Mrs. William Cum
mlngs Story to petition Congress to
make the apcromiatlon as stated by
Mrs. vrooman was unanimously adopted.
Talk on Bone Craft,
Mrs. Neff, of the "Western Reserve
Chapter, Cleveland, made an address on
homecraft, deploring that it ranked in
dustrially with the occupation of dig
ging ditches. "We graduate sweet and
clever girls from the best schools In
the world every year." said Mrs. Neff,
many of whom would starve if left
with two raw eggs, which they would
not knew now to prepare, and who
marry Jirilllant young men. college grad
uates, who can do everything but make
The remedy suggested by Mrs. Neff
was to train young girls in homemaklng
and to dignify it by making It a pro
fession. "Nursing." she said, "has been
elevated t6 a profession, and If we had
m6re graduate cooks we Would not need
to many graduate nurses."
Mrs. wuiiam Lawson Peel, chairman
of the committee on real Daughters,
reported tnat the committee had pre
pared a. bronse tablet bearing tbe in-
serration. -Real Daughter," surmounted
by the insignia of the society, to be
piacea as a marker on the tombstone
of every real Daughter, the tablet belnr
flv by nine Inches.

of a rum necessary for the defrayal of
