dates, are honorary president and honorary vice-president respectively anc

The work being accomplished dally by Mrs. Ayres and her corps of str.
nographers and aids is not for the campaign moment only, but foundation
building for the future of Democracy. It Is the first strictly woman's na
tlomil political movement to be organized in the United States and, as such
appeals to thinking women everywhere.
"It lias not declared for or against the question of equal suffrage noi

the greatest number' of American housewives, who today are required to na

Mrs. Woodrow W7ilson, wife of the now leader of Democracy and prob
able next mlstresB of the White House, is perhaps tho most interesting wom
an in the United States today. This Is inevitable not because she wishes
It, for sho does not and Is as firm as a rock In her conviedon that being the.
wile of a public man doos not necessitate nor call for a woman's becoming a
publicity Keeker. Sho successfully resisted all appeals of pholographers and
interviewers until Mr. Wilson's nomination as Democratic candidate for the'
presidency was un fait accompli. This modesty is easily traced to her south-,
ern ancestry and trnlning and is characteristic also of her distinguished
She was born Ellen Louise Axson, daughter of a Presbyterian divine ofi
savannah, Ga,, whoso family, so far as ho knows, is the only one of the.
name In America.
Like Mr. Wilson, she has ono brother and one sister living, all in the
same literary circle as the doctor and herself.
In this atmosphere of learning Mrs. Wilson could hardly be expected to
bo other than she Is widely rend, broad-minded and charitable, devoted to-'
her home and the principles for which it stands.
She 1ms marked ability as an artist, and it is said that a portrait painter
or ability was spoiled when she married the young barrister who had then
given up tho practlco of his profession to specialize on tho subject that hau
mado him a presidential nominee.
Mrs. Wilson's three daughters Misses Margaret Woodrow Wilson, Jes
sle Woodrow Wilson and Eleanor Randolph Wilson-possess the mental
characterle'.lcB of their father's and their mother'B artistic temperament, com
bined in Buch a way as to give zest to every moment of their lives and pro
tectlon from the foibles of the world. They form, Indeed, an ideal family
circle, ono that It would bo well for every American household to emulate.
