This Is the belief of leading politi

It means that Tennessee will be the
3 6th state, and simultaneously with
ratification 10000,000 more women In
America will become voters, to add
t'nlr strength to the 17,0o0.o00 who
already vote with state suffrage.

Although Governor A. EL Roberts

The legislature v. Ill convene Aug. y.
The reason Roberts is waiting to

,s because he Is running for re-nomi-Dbtion
and he feels he will have a

after bis political tate Is decided. How

"We have a clear majorltv without

Will occupy 13 vacancies. If there, Is
any fight at all, It will be over fac

The reason the outlook for early
ratification Is so hopeful, however, has
a party slant. Before the San Fran

in Tennessee that the Democratic par
ty could put over a president this veur
