DOAK t -,.y se,. ce for women was the !'■ • wo bills introduced in the General Assembly last week c-.^.gn. ire eye of clubwomen and brought their immediate at tention. One was introduced in the House by Representative W. Frank Taylor of Wayne, the other in the Senate by Senator O. B. Moss of Nash. That neither bill is desirable or necessary is the expressed opinion of women who led the movement which resulted in the adoption of an amendment to the State Constitution granting right of jury service to women and voted upon at the last genera! election with a favorable majority vole of over 50.000.

National Clothiers, Inc. 219 N. FRONT ST. [federation president said: “Wei must oppose, these bills.“ She au thorized the writer of this article o attend the hearing on the Tay lor bill and speak for her and the federation. Mrs. W. Carson Ryan of Chapel Hill, chairman of legis lation for the federation, was equally opposed to the bills in her statement. Rain and sleet did not matter. Twelve women.. representing 'vari-! ous organizations, were on hand at the Justice building at 9:30 Thurs day morning for the hearing on the Taylor bill. Mrs. Dess Gur ganus. representing the Business and Professional Women's clubs, and the writer were spokesmen for the women’s groups. The-contention was that the pre- : siding judge is charged with au thority to excuse persons for rea sons he deems sufficient from jury service, and that it is not neces sary to designate categories and reasons for excusing women citi zens any more than for men. To the suggestion from Representa tive Taylor that women do not wish to serve on juries, the an swer was that neither do most men, but that women citizens in large numbers are willing to ren der such service, thus accepting the responsibilities of citizenship as well as its privileges. Mrs. Gur ganus pointed to the fact that rural women were well informed through educational work by the Democratic prrty, which had en dorsed the proposed amendment and that in hei opinion the large vote cast in favor of the amend ment was due largely to that work, and similar work done by clubwomen. The committee, of which the in troducer of the bill, Mr. Taylor was chairman, finally voted to ap point a sub-committee to confer with three women in a further study of the proposed bill, and for another hearing to be held. Mrs. Hornell Hart of Duke university, Durham, Mrs. Gurganus. and the • writer, were named by the group of women present to work with the sub-committee. The bill introduced in the Sen ate by Senator Moss seeks to sub mit at the next general election a propbsal to amend the Consti tution again, denying jury service to women. Senator Moss is quoted as saying that only one out of five women wish to serve on a jury, and he regards this as sufficient reason it seems to seek a vote on the question. It is believed that j women will make -a creditable showing in the matter of perform- i ing their duty as to jury service j once the law has a chance to be tried out. To date very few panels have been submitted containing the names of women. There has been no actual test. With hundreds of educated wom en in every specialized field, in church work, in business and pro fessional vjork, willing to asume their duties as citizens as to jury service; thousands of young wom en pouring out of our colleges a-. nurliy, and others returning from the war services, it is not doubted among those who worked to secure the amendment that there wjll be women juiors in convincing num bers in the very near future. There is no fear among these same leaders that a proposal to again amend the Constitution and undo what was done so recently would carry in an election. There is likewise confidence that voters do not wish to be called upon to express themselves on the matter again. This is the contention the federation representative will pre sent at the hearing on the Moss bill. Individual clubwomen desir ing to express themselves should send their letters to State head quarters at once. Clubwomen and clubs having resolutions they wish submitted to the annual convention of the Fed eration in May, should immediate ly send .copies of such resolutions to the chairman of the resolutions committee, Mrs. Howard G.
