South Cyrolina women will have no

rules in South Carolina this summer if
;two nio're states ratify the equal suf

Democratic convention May 19, and
certain slight inodifications to the pri

The only changes in the rules that
will be required, according to John'

of the state Democratic executive com
mittee, will be the adding of the
words "or she" after "he" and "or
hers" after "his" wherever these
Words, referring to the male voters,
appear in the rules or substitute there
for "qualified elector." That this
will be done is beyond question,
should two more states ratify the

Mrs. Julian B. Salley of Aiken pres
ident of the South Carolina Equal Suf
frage league, yesterday wrote S. M.
Wolfe, attorney general for an opin
ion as to the prerequisites for voting.
Mr. Wolfe has not yet had -time to
formulate his opinion, but in a tele
phone conversation last night Mr.
Evans said the amendment of the
rules to enable the women to vote was
a very simple matter.
In her letter Mrs. Salley emphasiz
ed that the women would automatical
ly become citizens with the ratifica
tion of the amendment by two more
states. Delware and Washington are
expected to act favorably within the
next week. "We hope and expect to
vote in the presidential election and
also in the Democratic primaries this
summer," she said.
T6 vote in the primaries, the women
will necessarily have to belong to
Democratic clubs and have their
names on the club rolls, along with
those of the male voters. Qualifica
tions for membership in any club and
for voting at a primary are prescribed

Certain other requirements will have
to be- met to vote in the general elec

be to procure a registration 'certi

open, the first Monday each month at

Registration raises an important
question as to tax receipts,' presenta

WILD HERDS INCREASE.
In the 10 years since the Montana
NatiQnal Bison Range was established
the 37 buffaloes with which the herd
was started have increased to 296. In
addition there are on the range 125
elk (n6t including calves of last year),
33 antelope and 13 mule deer. It is
believed that the range is large
enough to support 800 bison, 400 ante
lope, 500 deer, and 800 elk.
