TOUR STATE IN
AUTOS FOR VOTE
Chicago Women Plan Invasion
' of Every City, Village and
MAKE SUFFRAGE AN ISSUE
Call Upon Those IeFoted to Cause
j to Furnish Machines to Spread
Chicago, May 4. Bands of women
suffragists, touring the state in auto
mobiles, will descend upon every city,
town, village and hamlet in Illinois
before the legislative primaries next
September in an effort to make the
question of "votes for women" the
leading issue in a campaign that al
ready has so many angles that it
promises to be the hardest' fought leg
islative battle ever experienced in
Mrs. Catherine "W'augh McCulioch,
lawyer and justice of the peace in Bv
anston and a leader in the equal suf
frage movement, made the first an
nouncement of the plan yesterday.
Will Call for Machine.
Every woman who has ever indica
ted sympathy with the woman's suf
frage movement and who is fortunate
enough to possess an automobile will
be called upon to give her machine to
the work. Several already have prom
ised to do so, and within a few days
all will have received a request from
" the campaign committee to cooperate.
"The 'society suffragists' must con-
' Becrate their automobiles to our cause,"
said Mrs. McCulioch. "Our worst trou
ble now is that the legislators do not
take us seriously, and to gain success
we must elect a legislature pledged to
woman suffrage.. Tours of the state
seem to us the best means of educa
ting the voters to the merits of our
JFtrc In Eaeb Party.
"We plan now to have five women
In each party. First, a matron as
chaperon, for we Illinois suffragists
are very proper, you know. Then a
college girl, a working girl, a singer,
to draw the crowd, you know, and a
woman lawyer. We will go into a
town, get a permit to speak from the
mayor and hold meetings in two or
three different places and present our
cause to the voters.
"I expect to take part in the tours,
and another woman who will go is
Miss Harriet Grim, a graduate of the
"University of Chicago and our state
organizer. We will get most of our
college girls from the College Suffrage
league and our working girls from the
Political Equality union. Mrs. Ray
mond Robins will go whenever she
can and she will organize the working
girls for us.
"Many women plan to spend their
summer vacations in this .way. Dr.
Anna Blount of Oak Park is going for
at least two weeks. Miss Helen Todd,
a graduate of the University of Wis
consln and a state factory inspector,
is another, and we expect to get a lot
more right away.
One Machine Promised.
"Mrs. James E. Defenbaugh has
nromised us her automobile for all
summer, and our state president, Mrs.
Ella Stewart, will give us another,
We're going to begin looking up the
women who have automobiles right
Dr. Anna E. Blount, who spoke be
fore the congressional committee on
the equal rights bill a few days ago.
heartily favors the idea.
"Some of our best speakers will go,
she said. "The British women at the
national convention in Washington
few days ago told us that the only
difficulty after speaking in the streets
a few times is to resist the temptation
to start a meeting every time two or
more people are seen standing on
the Reuf-Schmitz regime, A. K. Det
weiller of Toledo, Ohio, former vice
president of the Home Telephone com
pany of this state, has surrendered.
He was released on bonds of $130,000.
A BIRTHDAY PARTY.
I keep no reckoning of the years
As they pass by,
Life's seasons, with their smiles and
So whether twenty be the score
Of twenties two or three or four
Still young am I!
But ah! the days are mine to hold
In loving fee,
And all their richness I am bold
To feel and see !
I hail each morn the added round,
And in their wealth today is found
This thought of thee!,
Couldsfl thou but gain the good I prav.
My nerves might cause;
Thy birthday would become a day
Of heart's release,
Nor wealth nor honors wish I thee
But loftier wish- that thou mayest be
With self at peace!
