We would like to pat the wo
men of Terre Haute, Ind. on the
back, figuratively, of course.
Without question, Terre Haute
.would take first prize for rotten
politics. Fraud and corruption
don't even pretend to go masked.
Repeating, ballot box stuffing and
bribery are the rule artd, wherever
possible, the polls are located In
tenderloin precincts, so that the
political crook can get in his work

decent citizens "who believe in
Now, the women of Terre
Haute cannot vote, but they've
heard of the good effect of wo-'
tmen'presence at the polls and so
on-next election day they're going

the city and do what they canj

patriotism 'and courage, bnt
they've 'organized for it, and we'
.hope that- they'll be able tp teach 4
