Rouli, latest society dance, and it a
as popular In ballrooms now as it was

modified and refined the wild and

It Is all right to give to our friends,
especially if they are in poor circum
stances, but this idea of giving to an
employer hard-earned money that you
need yourself is supremely silly.
The question of giving at Christ
mas time is one that must be settled
by each one for herself, but pet son
ally I think if one sits down and
writes a personal note to those
friends she wants to remember and
who she wishes to remember her at
the glad holiday time will find much
more satisfaction in the deed and
confer more pleasures on her friends
than in giving something to them
that she cannot afford and that they
would rather not accept. /

woman writes me about Christmas

Reason For Attack on Demo
cratic Party, Miss Whitte
more Tells Local League
“We do not hope to remove the
Democratic party from power, but by
pressure, we do hope to remove the
party objection to the enfranchise
ment of women, ' Miss Maigaret
Whittemore, told the Equul Suffrage
league of Wayne county, Wednesday
aitoruoou. In suffrage headquarters.
Miss Whittemore is secretary of
the league, and in the last campaign
was one of the ac tive workers against
the Democrat candidates In the state
of Washington.
"The attack of equal suffragists
upon the Democrats is not as Demo
crats hut as the party In power, and
the party refuslug recognition of the
suffrage movement,’’ said Miss Whit
temore. “There are now over four
millions of enfranchised women in
the United States, and we feel that
they have a right to bo heard by the
party In power."
In one of the seven official visits
made by equal suffragists to Presi
dent Wilson, the president, the speak
er said, told them that he was so
bound by the rub'* of his party that
he was unable to Initiate new leglsla
tion with regard to suffrage.
“However,” said Miss Whittemore,
"the president had no qualms of con
science over setting aside the rules
of his party’ in the Panama canal tolls
