Miss Dorothy Lee Mills. ..f the Na

"Lady Astor's election shows the
progress made by the feminist move
ment during the war. Her election
should prove an aid to women In In
dustry. In the United States, I be
lieve, It will have the effect of mak
ing It easier to elect women to the
House of Representatives. Many wo
men will appear as candidates in the
next Congressional election. Women
In the House would act quickly on
questions connected with reducing
