SUFFRAGE CANNOT BE BLOCKED.
Whatever the outcome of the proceedings initiat
ed in Tennessee courts to restrain the governor and
state officials from proclaiming ratification of suf
frage, suffrage leaders have no fear that the ballot
will be withheld from woman in November. Should
the decision be adverse and it is promptly appealed
to the United States supreme court, as it would
be, and expedited before that tribunal, there is
hardly a doubt that in the light of the court's rul
ing on the Ohio cases the Tennessee contention
would be overruled and ratification approved.
The point at issue is practically the same as in
Ohio. There it was contended that ratification of
the suffrage and prohibition amendments was in
complete without submission to a referendum under
the state constitution. The supreme court held that
the federal constitution prescribed the manner of
ratification by the legislatures, or by convention,
bvt^made no requirement for a referendum after
ratification by a legislature.
The Tennessee argument is that the state con
stitution requires that no amendments shall be
stifled except by a legislature elected on that
issue. The federal constitution makes no quali
fications,, and unless the United States supreme
--__, o-_-j,._ ivoid last Tuesday and picked plums,
poan poacners. gh
court discovers a greater distinction than is visible
at this time, there can be practically no question
that the Ohio decision will govern the present pro
ceedings in Tennessee if appealed. "*r
The proper course will be to go ahead as though
ratification was effected, making every preparation,
through assessment and registration, to permit the
women to vote in November. There is no reason
why, if the Tennessee court grants the injunction,
the appeal should not be made, argued and decided
before election day. Should the federal court by
any chance decide against suffrage on the point
raised, the country can better afford to lose the
money spent in preparing to qualify the women
as voters than to deprive them of that right through
failure to be ready if the decision, as it is believed
to be practically certain, upholds the ratification

All Pages at Right
Why not print all books In such a
way that every page Is a right-hand
page? asks Dr. I. Wtnslow of Boston,
who claims a patent for his concep
tion of how to do it. He holds that
If one has to read pages on one side
of a book only this will be held more
easily, the eyes will not wander, there
will be no necessity for changing the
position of the head and neck. Thus
rending, especially of big heavy vol
umes, will be less fatiguing, not only
to the eyes, head and neck, but also
to the arms and hands.
Mr. Wlnslow's Idea is to print a
book so that you read straight ahead
from right-hand page to right-hand
page, these being numbered consecu
tively then, when you have read
through to the last right hand page,
you turn the book upside down and
continue reading ns before, what in
ordinary books are left hand pages
now being right-hand pages. This, of
course. Involves printing all left hand
pages upside down and numbering
them consecutively from the back of
the book. This would easily be ar
ranged by the printer In laying out
the forms, though to get the pagina
tion of a large book correct would re
quire some nice calculation on the
