a beneficial effect. It was apparent
from the governor's speech that he will
sign the bill, regardless of any opinion
that may be given by Attorney General
Lucey. Governor Dunne expressed the
belief during the day that the point
raised by the attorney general In re
lation to the possible unconstitutional
ity of the bill was groundless.
Mrs. Grace Wilbur Trout, president
of the Equal Suffrage association, pre
sided at the banquet. The speakers
included Senators Hugh S. Magill. Wal

Representatives James A. Watson,
George Fitch, Christian Madsen, Ed

a number of black men marching
through the halls asking the legisla

them in celebrating the semi-centen

have been walking the same halls

"The women seeking suffrage knew
I they were right. While their sisters

In an interview Governor Dunne
said that even if there is no elective

the heroes of the evening. The wom

by this new convert to the suffrage
"Twice during the time I was speak

did not go to a roll call In the house,"
said Mr. Shurtleff. "ConseQuently I

There is a popular notion among the
"constant readers" of the cport page
that the only reason a member of the
weakef-gender goes to a ball game is
to ask foolish question! and provide
dismal wheezes for the comic week
lies. Lot3 of baseball bugs believe
that the most intelligent query a wo
man can propound at a ball game Is
something such as: "My sakes alive,
why don't they discharge that pitch
er? He hasn't hit the bat this inning."
The young man who takes his girl to
a game is looked upon as a most hero
ic hero by the average bug, and they
figure that after answerkig inane In
terrogations for six innings he will go
to pieces in the seventh.
This may have been true five years
ago and to a certain extent today, but
the idea Is fast becoming passe and
our sisters and cousins and aunts are
reading up on batting averages.
Just how seriously baseball will
compete with bridge and bargain coun
ters Is a matter that cannot be very
well doped out right now. If the femi
nine interest in our national pastime
continues to thrive it's a cinch it will
have an effect on the present scheme
of things and will somewhat alter
baseball as she is now played. The
umpires will have to employ a more
cultured tone in speaking to the play
ers and the players will have to be
neater in their personal appearance.
Real handsome ball players will cop
the big chance no matter what they
batted in the suitcase league last sea
son. And the peanut boy will be sell
ing lady fingers and macaroons.
The feminine usurpation of the dia
mond will do its worst work in domes
tic circles. Husband and wife dis
agreeing on the merits of a certain
play will find a pleasant means of con
versation for the supper table great
amusement for the children especial
ly when upon being tpld by her lord
and spousal mate that it's a whole lot
she knows about the game yeh
mother makes hasty and determined
preparations to hang one on father's
beak. With a coffee strainer or some
thing. A pretty picture!
And while it is always a difficult
matter to gaze through the veil of the
future we look to see the time when
the cars from the ball game will be
packed with baseball bugettes, all ea

Mr. Alschuler said he signed the
petition because the advocates of wom
