OF, NEW STATE
League of Women Voters Is Ad
dressed by Dean Loeb and
Miss Wood, Slate
All Women Must Vote if They
Want to Prove That
They Really Want
Women's influence it the poll wis em
phssiied by Miss Myrtle Wood, sute
chairman of the unification of Ins com
mitter, in her talk before the League of
Women Voters meeting lat night at the
Broadoay Methodist Church.
"It is necessary for all women to tote."
said Miss Wood, "to prore that we really
want suffrage. Our influence in the fu
ture depends upon the interest we show
in the coming election. We must choose
party but still be above parties. It
should be country Erst not party first.
Parties need behind them an outside
force to combat machine politics. If we
maintain an independent organization we
will hold the balance of power and our
vote will be made most effective.
"Our only hope to bring about a reform
in the state government is to vote for the
Fifteenth Amendment to the constilu
lion, said MisssWood,
Dean Isidor Loeb addressed the meet'
ing on the need of a new state constitu
tion. He traced the history of the pres
ent constitution since its adoption in
1820. Missouri has had three constitu
tions which were really continuation of
the first. In 1865 a new constitution was
adopted. It provided for the abolition of
slavery and the disenfranchisement of
people who had assisted the Confederacy
in the Gnl War and it was replaced by
another in 1875 because of these features.
"The constitution is the fundamental
law of the state and it limits the powers
of the state because the people decided
it should do so. said Dr. Loeb.
"The people have tied their hands and
many laws cannot be enacted because of
the present constitution.
There hare been ninety nine attempts
to aaaend the present document and that is
evidence of a desire for a change. Pro
nosed amendments are increatill and we
have thirteen to vote upon this time, the
larzest number ever called up. Amend-
ments are inedaquate; the problems are
too complex. They make a burden upon
the voter because they necessitate a long
ballot. One half to one-third of the peo
ple never vote on the amendments; and
with three exceptions tbey have all been
accepted or rejected.
Dean Loeb outlined some of the most
glaring defects of the present constitution.
First the Judiciary was discussed, 'ine
Supreme Court has been from two to
three Tears behind in its dockets. Be
cause of this' justice cannot be adminis
tered. It works a hardship on poor indi
viduals and gives corporations an advant
age. A poor man cannot wait three years
for a damage suit, he must have a deci
"There is the revenue and taxation of
the sute. We have a system of property
taxation which experts have condemned as
inadequate. The Board of Equity can
kill and restrict the work of the "aisle
legislature and some of the men 6n this
board do not profess to be authorities in
finance. Limitations on the rates have
worked a hardship on schools pf the stale.
Some of the districts are to small that 6S

"The framers of the constitution did
their work well. It met the needs of that
day but many changes come in Ute in
forty-five years. Schools are entirely 011
latent and our great aystem of. pumas

provision is sa'i.1 to be the moat restric

CHICAGO. Sept. 25-Masked bandits
held up the Illinois Central flyer and rob-
oea ine mail cars as the train was rominir
into Chicago last night. Ther took aii
registered mail bags and escaped. The
loot is estimated to be from f 10,000 to
80,000. A check of the stolen mail is
being made today.
The same train wis robbed six months
ago aa It was coming into Chicago. At
that time Leroy Walton was killed 'in a
revolver duel in a fashionable apartment
where he had taken refuge. Eighty five
thousand dollars waa taken in that rob
bery. The robbers last night boarded the
train at Tucker. IIL, and hid between two
mail cars. When the mail clerk started
from one car to another, he was forced
back into the car and bound. Five other
mail clerks were also bound in the car.
As the train was nearing Chicago the rob
bers forced the trainmen to slow down
and they leaped off. When the train
gulled into Chicago the police were no-
tihed and ntfe squads were sent out.
Two of the clerks in this holdup were
in toe robbery of ui months ago and tbey
believe that it is members of the same
gang that committed both robberies.
Three of the mail bags were from Mem

St. Louis and one from Champaign, IIL
Federal authorities said today that some

IStory of Gideon of Old Gives
Idea for Present Organization
SIDELIGHTS OF THE
NOW IN COLUMBIA
"And tbey stood every man ia his place
round about the camp," ia the slogan
adopted by the Gideons, who are holding
a convention In Uoiumbia. The Isreal
ilea of old, under the leadershio of Gid
con. overcame the Midianitea by standing
n ineur place, ine modern Gideon are
overcoming the obstacles by keeping their
places in line.
The Israelites for their sins were op-
proscu oy rniuian, and called to the Lord
for aid. Aa angel of the Lord appeared
before Gideon, who was threshing grain
by the wine-press to hide it from the Mid
ianitea, and instructed him to save Israel
from the Midianitea.
Gideon doubted his. own ability until
the Lord gave him three signs; then be
arose and pitched his camp beside the
well of Harod so that the host of Midian
ites were on the north side of him. The
story of the fight is told in the seventh
chapter of Judges
"And the Lord said unto Gideon. Tha
people that are with tbee are too many for
me to give the Midianitea in their hands,
lest Israel vaunt themselves against me,
saying. Mine own hand hath saved me.
"Now therefore go to, proclaim in the
ears of the people, sating. Whosoever is
fearful and afraid, let him return and
depart early from Mount Gilead. And
there returned of the people twenty and
two thousand; and there remained tea
'And the Lord said unto Gideon. The
people are yet too many, bring them down
unto. the water, and I will try them for
thee there; and it shaH be, that of whom
I say unto thee. This shall go with thee.
the same shall go with thee; and of
whom I say unto thee. This shall go with
thee, the same shall go with thee; and
of whomsoever I say unto thee. This shall
not go with thee, the same shall not go.
"So he brought down the people ante
the water, and the Lord said unto Gideon,
Every one that laspeth of the water with
his tongue, as a dog lappeth, him shall
thou set lryhiaaelf; likewise everyone
that baweth down noon his aneea lo

putting their' haas), to their mouth, were
three hundred men; but all the rest of
the people bowed down upon their knees
to drink water.
"And the Lord said unto Gideon. .By
the three hundred men that lappeth will
t save yon and deliver the Midianitea
into thuie hand: and let all the other peo

"So the people toon: victuals ia their

the rest of tarael every man unto his teat

and the host of Midian waa beneath him

livered it into thine baad.
"But if thou fear "to (p down, go-thou

"And thou shall hear what tbey say;
and afterwards shall thine hands be
strengthened to go down unto the host
Then went hexdown with Phurah his
servant unto the' outside of the armed
men that were in the host
'And the Midianitea and the Amale-
kites and all the children of the east lay
along in the valley like grasshoppers for
the multitude: and their camels were
without number, as the sand by the sea
side for the multitude.
"And when Gideon was come, behold.
there was a man that told a dream unto
bis fellow and said. Behold. I dreamed a
dream, and, lo, a cake of barley bread
tumbled into the host of the Midian, and
came unlo a tent and smote it that it fell.
and overturned it that the tent lay along.
"And his fellow answered and said, tnis
is nothinc else save the sword of Gideon
the son of Joash, a man of Israel; for into
his hand hath God delivered Midian, and
all the host
"And -it was so. when Gideon beard the
telling of the dream, and the interpreta
tion thereof, that be worshipped, and re
turned into the host of Israel, and said.
Arise; for the Lord hath delivered into
your hands the host of Midian.
"And be divided the three hundred men
into three companies, and he put a trum
pet in every man's hands, with empty
pitchers, and lamps within the pitchers.
"And he said unto them. Look on me,
and do likewise: and. behold, when 1
come to the outside of the camp, it shall
be that aa I do, so shall ye do.
"When 1 blow with a trumpet I and
all that are with me. then blow ye the
trumpets also on every side of all the
camp, and say. The sword of the Lord,
and of Gideon.
"So Gideon, and the hundred men that
were with him, came unto the outside of
the camp during the middle watch; and
tbey had but newly set the watch; and
they blew the trumpets and brake the
pitchers that were in their hands.
'And the three companies blew the
trumpets, and brake the pitchers, and
held the lamps in their left hands, and
their trumpets in their Tight hands to

the Lord, and of Gideon.
