Somne May Not Be Permitted to Vote.
Views of Managers
Atlanta, Nov. 1.--JWhether Georgia
WOlen will vote in tomorrow's gen
oral election remained an open ques
tion tonight 'with the possibility, ac
cording to state ofllicipls, that the
Question might be decided different
ways i different precincts. and that
,court action .might follow.
Georgia law for years has required
registration at least six months before
election and the 19th amendment was
proclaimed less than six months before
the election. R. A. Denny, state attor
ney general, has ruled that the nation
al lawconfers suffrage on women, re
gardless of Georgia rules as to regis
tration, and at the capitol it was said
managers of some -precincts ipossibly
might go ahead on this and permit all
women to vote 'who presented them
selves at the polls, while it was pos
sible otfier managers might refuse.
In the absence of any oficial action,
Governor 'Dorsey was one of those who
held this view. Women will not vote
in Fulton county, accordin.g to ordi
nary Thomas 'H.. Jeffries, who is in
charge of election machinery here.
The governor's view given offhand
w'as that the six months rule applies
to all voters, men and women, but lie
made it plain that lie was not seeking
to influence any person on the sub
ject. It is not in the clief execuitive's
power to say who shall or shall not
vote, lie added
Man y leading suffragists, including
Mrs. .lary .\lcLendon of Athinta, a
pioneer in the cause, have u rged wo

FOREST LONG UNDER WATER
Submerged Petrified Trees That Must
Be Centuries Old Removed as
Menace to Navigation.
When the government ship canal
that connects Puget sound with Lake
Washington was opened, the waters of
the lake were lowered 12 feet. While
wire-dragging the lake, says a con
tributor, the United States coast and
geodetic survey discovered a subma
rine forest. The tops of the sub
merged trees were so close to the sur
face that they were a menace to nav
igation. Under-water logging opera
tions to clear the lake were there

The trees were withouat branches
and stood vertical, or nearly so; they
were semlbetrifled. The longest trunk
removed was 121 feet 6 inches. The
toll, 10 inches thick, rosm to within 4
feet of the surface of the lake. The
butt was 5 feet 6 inches In diameter,

In Lake Washingt.on, nearly a hundred
trees were destroyed. The cleanup
