THE ANNUAL CONVENTION
The Federation of Women's Clubs meet in Annual conven
tion in Baton Rouge today. The delegates represent every nook
and corner, as well as the large cities of the state, for there is
no section too insignificant to support a live woman's club, and
to send a delegate to the annual convention. So this body of
women delegates is a truly representative body of the state's
most progressive citizenry.
Their object in meeting in these conventions yearly is to ad
vance the better interests of the state: to promote progress in
citizenship. civics, school affairs, and to make life more toler
able for all citizens.
God created women in the image of unselfishness!
For the last three years women have been recognized as full
citizens in this commonwealth. Since women have won this sixty
year long battle, there have been in this state, in session, a con
stitutional convention and a setting of the legislature.
Women lobbyists have attended both sessions and have been
conspicuous in their activities on the. floos of the assembly halls.
In that respect they have been j, st liki men. But there the

Lt to lower it into the grave decently.
If this were all, it might be differ

LO the same scenes have been enacted af
ter each war of which the writer has It
recollection. Today the last remnants Y
of the Civil War go to their graves
with the same loving few who true to
the last minutes see them properly i
in laid away with the regret that should T
ce obtain over their passing. The same T
applies to the men who volunteered inT

ias With such scenes before us is it
lur. reasonablTh&to marvel that the draft C
god is necessary to form the nation's de
und fences? Does the nation's evidences
ac- of gratitude warrant any wild rush
ac- on the part of its young manhood to
3n- do and die for Duty? If these are the
ep- evidences of a community's estimate
ro- of reward for the price of a life giv
are en for its defense, then the premium
ep- is removed from Patriotism and the
ub- "slacker" becomes a saint.
There seems to be no rule of psy
chological reasoning that justifies the
res' attitude of the public in this regard.
The last honors due each ex-service
