The time must he fully ripe for challenging the policies and general de pjeanoi of the Wilson administration when n lead er ht Colonel Roosevelt's keen intuition can aay flatly of the President's record: I now fool that 1 am in honor bound to stand in strong opposition to the administration. I feel that as regards e-.;- onal relations the policy of ires?n* a ? n ha* meant the abandon rr?v,t of the interest and honor of America. Fur? thermore. I fe?! that vv thi*- o'.ir own boundaries the cours?? pursued by the administration has meant the abandonment of ?very sane effort to secure the ab?teme?:* ef -.<?;?! and industrial evils.

GEORGE MARSHALL. WOMEN IN CONSTITUTIONAL CON VENTION Mrs. Blatch Tell? Why She Objects to Their Participation. To the Editor of The Tribune. Sir: In an interview with me on the question of women in the constitu? tional convention that appeared in last Sunday'? Tribune I am quoted a? ?a; ing fiat "the technique of legislation ii nol very safe in the hands of won? en." There evidently was .-onie mis? understanding between me and the in? terviewer from I he Tribune, which might well have arisen, as we ta!k',i together on the noisy elevated road To me the sentence has no m? siung at all: I cannot conceive wha' t ? words imply. I know that I hav, H reasons for B strong feeling of doub* as to , he ?.eisdom of putting ?reme into the constitutional convention just , eve of our referendum ia ?M8. My ? r?l objection I? tha' I know thai intelligent w.u.'en could not be as lent a< oyaters, and thai if th?y ex? pressed their views on the highly ?88? tentious question which will cora? up before the constitutional convention the backers of some 'ism against ?rhit**i our delega'e^ ^poke would treasure " up ?gains', all women and take it as SB on of our untitness for po!it ?cal life, and might lound up many vote? against us in the November elec? tion of Itli. ''? lecond objection and this i< probably ??'hiere the "technique" came In and which has ?.??I to my bei/ig quoted in a wa) 'ha' does not reflect my opinion it that, like all legislative bodies the ' ' Il ,r.al convention ?ill have inner groups contro'ling it. ?i-? womei would he in the convention 'or the ftrst time they would not form .,?' those inner groups and yet would he regarded as our representa tivea It certainly would he to our In? terest to deal with the inner groups direct, but 'he probable result of there being women delegates would be tha' mid he referred to them and find onr?e!\e- compelled to deal with those nol 'n :!?'? inner eirels ? M third objection I? that s gre?'. deal of ?rgy SOd money would have '" be r ren to a campaign to rlecl women to the constitutional roi vention, ami in the-e Inal few m< before the referendum certainly not a bil of energy, time or money can be ?pared from the main propaganda So far a? training for service in a constitutional convention is concerned. ! am ?.?uite certain that the average women is as well prepared as th? av? erage man. As I watch the conduc* f.f great conventions oi women sn?l compare them with convent ion- if BteS I am moved to nothing but pride in th? ability of my own s, ?-,. If ]?*,! ,-,' the convention were to be composed ?f women I should think it would be well for the state. HARRIOT MANT?N BLATCH. New York. July ?_', |<J14, Religion and Science Distinct.
