PARIS, Aug. IS. -The French press mentions tne probability of an inter vi< w in Switzerland between Premier ?

' is opposed to allowing Germany to take ! the lead against the Bolsheviki, Lei , Tem?).-- .says: | "If tne Polish victory develops as! we desire it should, Germany's offer to Lloyd George will no longer be called for and no one will need to worry about the price of Germany's demands for acting a.. Europe's shield against Bolshevism." Le Temps says that as Germany was continually lighting against the Euro? pean order as established by the peace treaty, it doesn't see how that nation could be asked to act as the de- ! fend? r of order in Europe even if! Poland should be crushed. Despite the anti-Engiish tone of a ? majority of the French press on the ! Polish issue, there is a small body of ?.pinion which fears that France made a bad diplomatic move? when she sep? arated from England, even though she | now has American support in her stand. The Paris Midi considers that . France made the same mistake in en j cournging General Wrangel that she j made in encouraging the l'oies to cap I ture Kiev, capital of the Ukraine. This ! offensive only served to rouse Russian I national unity, with disastrous results. No new note, it is sail in official ' ' circles, has been received from the United States promising help for the I Poles, although it is hoped and ex ' fieeted that active American help ulti? mately will be forthcoming. Satisfac? tion is expressed at the dispatch of two American cruisers and a torpedo boat to the Baltic, presumably to Dan ?/ig, where the activity of Sir Reginald Tower ?u refusing to allow the unload ! ing of munition boats caused much dis? satisfaction in French official circles.

ANTWERP, Aug. 18. The honor o1 making the second world's record ai the seventh Olympic gamer; fell to r Canadian, Earl Thomson, who to-daj clipped one-fifth of a second from the 110-meter hurdle mark, which was established by an American in 1908. Although Americans again scorec heavily, there were several disappoint ments and the jinx seems to be hover ing over Coach Moakley's camp. Witl 101 points to their credit, compar?e to 49 for Finland and 26 for Sweden their nearest rivals, the Americans cai afford to laugh away any kind o hoodoo. Beside?, Joie W.

LONDON, Aug. 18.?An international anti-war movement is imminent as a re? sult of the action of the French gov? ernment in threatening the expulsion of the British trade unionist leaders, Adamson and Gosling, who spent yes? terday in Paris in an effort to persuade French labor leaders to form a council of action similar to that set up here as a protest against war with Russia. The answer of the French General Federation of Labor to the govern? ment's move has bean to send Jouhoux, its secretary, to Amsterdam, where it is reported that an international trade union congress, which is said to in? clude Germans among its delegates, will take steps to organize tho work? ers of every country in an anti-war movement, which probably will confine itself to prohibiting the manufacture and transportation of munitions and war materials. Government's Action Scored PARIS, Aug. 18.- Expulsion from Paris of William C, Adamson, Labor member of the British Parliament, and Harry Gosling, leader of the English transport workers, would do more for establishment of "councils of action" in France than a year's propaganda, Marcel Cachin, Socialist member of the French Chamber of Deputies, told The Associated Press to-day. M. Cachin has just returned from Moscow, strongly advocating that the French Socialist party join the Third Inter? nationale. Referring to the incident yesterday, when Adamson and Gosling, who had ci.me to Paris for labor conferences, were requested to leave, M. Cachin said: "It is the entire British working ciass which has been insulted. Our British friends had come to Paris in accord with the French workers to consider the most efficient means to prevent war and conclude a definite peace with, Russia. If our rulers be? lieve that by expelling British dele- , gates they can prevent us from con- \ ceited action with British labor they arc mistaken. Nothing can prevent an ! international union of proletariats.! Decidedly, were our ministers in the pay of the Bolsheviki they could do little better work for them than by ex? asperating the working classes of both France and Great Britain." Professor and 8 Sandwich Men Lower Prices on tlie Heights There was a time when the neigh? bors of Dr. Robert Grimshaw on Wash? ington Heights looked askance upon his schemes for making that com? munity .Manhattan's hilltop Utopia, but since yesterday noon they have been behind him?to a woman. His victory is tho more remarkable be? cause he is the man who announced a few years ago that woman was an utter failure and the cause of most of the ridiculous inefficiency that char? acterized the United States of America. Dr. Grimshaw won the day, not only against the skepticism of his neigh? bors, but against the business methods of greengrocers of the neighborhood, and he won it with a mere corporal's guard of sandwich men. It was three weeks ago that Dr. Grimshaw, a me? chanical engineer of note and a mem? ber of the faculty of the College of the City of New York, pronounced his ultimatum. Prices were much higher at the stores near his home than the altitude of Washington Heights warranted. He served notice on dealers, particularly on dealers in fruits ami vegetables, that prices must come down. If they failed to come down, said Dr. Grim? shaw,. he would bring them down. Grocers Snicker at Warning Washington Heights laughed up its s'eeve and the snicker was echoed more oi- less politely by every grocer along Broadway and St. Nicholas Avenue *?rn J77*h c"?pt to i?1-* S*rcf, Dr. Robert Grimshaw said nothing whatever. When three weeks had ex? pired yesterday and he noted the same wide margin between wholesale prices and those which his grocer-neighbors pasted above their tomatoes, potatoes, green corn, cucumbers, lettuce and so forth, Dr. Grimshaw crooked his little linger and eight sandwich men sprang to do his bidding. Panoplied in the accouterments of their trade, they were reviewed by Dr. Robert Grimshaw, who inscribed upon them, fore and aft, the wholesale prices of tomatoes, potatoes, green corn, cu? cumbers, lettuce and so forth. Thus armed, he sent them forth, to battle silently for his cause. Prices Begin to Tumble Alt the morning the valiant merce? naries trudgedup one side of Broadway, down the other, across 177th Street, up St. Nicholas Avenue to 181st Street, down the other side of the avenue to 177th Street and back to Broadway. Housewives out for their morning marketing read that tomatoes that were labeled 20 cents in all the stores roundabout were to be had at whole? sale for 4 cents or less. They saw similar contrasts in the other prices quoted by the grocers and flaunted by the plodding sandwich men and they told the grocers what they thought about it. By noon the grocers' prices were wavering and falling on all sides. By early afternoon many of them had been divided by four or live. Dr. Grimshaw called oil his sandwich men. He was modestly elated. "Others in other districts," he sadi, "can und should do just what 1 have ? V" - '-..?-.? tt ,; ?. . . ?? Woman Vote Expected to Aid Harding Republicans Believe Suf? frage Will Help Them in Presidential Race ; Fear Effect on Senate Blow Most Serious To Wet Candidates Democrats insist Progres? sive Sentiment Will Al? lure the New Voters By Carter Field WASHINGTON, Aug. 18.--Enfran? chisement of women in very state is likely to help the Republicans on the Presidency, but, on the other hand, help the Democrats in their fight to control the Senate. Political Washington was busy to? night checking up, with a view to de? termining how the situation would be affected by this army of additional voters. By far the most prevalent view, ap? parently, is that the women voters will divide along pretty much the same lines as the men in the forthcoming election, and as a result change the situation v^ry little. But there are a few exceptions to thise. Republican States Lead Those who think Harding will get more than the Republican share of the women voters seem to present the most convincing argument. They wave aside the contention that the thirty sixth state is Democratic, and the women may therefore be expected to lie grateful, by calling attention to fact that of the thirty-six states which did ratify the amendment twenty-nine ?-re Republicans ami only seven Demo? cratic. These observers say the proportion; of women favoring prohibition is much | greater than the proportion of drys among the male voters. The fact that Cox was nominated by wet political ! bosses, and that his campaign is being j aided by a subtle moist appeal direct? ed particularly at the wet centers of New York, New Jersey and Wiscon?in,j will, it is thought, result in driving aj tremendous number of women to the polls to vote for Harding as a rebuke to tho wet leaders. This view, incidentally, is strongly held by (le?era 1 Counsel Wayne B. Wheeler of the Anti-Saloon League. "Not all women are dry, of course," j Mr. WheeW tolil The Tribune corre? spondent after hearing the news from | Tennessee, "but" the great majority of i women are not only dry, but anxious to see a rigorous enforcement of the dry laws. You will find that tho women in this election will not vote] for any candidate who makes an appeal j to the hopes of the wets. Their votes will aid tremendously the candidate who promises strict law enforcement. Women Foes to Liquor Interests "Then, too, the women know that the j liquor forces have always opposed I woman suffrage because of the knowl- j edge of the wets that women would ; vote for prohibition. So they have come to regard the liquor interests as their enemies, with the result that their desire to end the liquor traffic is given an added incentive." Democrats here wave this aside, say? ing that prohibition is not an issue in this campaign and that the women voters, being naturally more eager! about progressive legislation, will naturally turn to the more progressive candidates, not only for President, but | for Senators and members of the House | of Representatives. They say the granting of the ballot to the women of all 111?' states will be of enormous h elf) to Cox and to the winning of a Democratic Senate and House. The state in which the wet and dry element is ant to enter stronger than any other, it is said, is New Jersey, j The tremendous vote given Governor i Edwards, running on a "Wet as the! Atlantic Ocean" platform last year, | has encouraged the Democrats to be- | lieve that they could overcome the, normally tremendous Republican ma-! jority in that stale and win its four (Continuel] on pan?, three) , Roosevelt Says Wilson Tricked Lloyd George Declares U. S. Has About 12 Votes in League Assembly; ! Wrote Hayti Constitution BUTTE, Mont., Aug. 18. -President Wilson "put one over" on Premier j Lloyd George of Great Britain in the ! distribution of voting strength in the League of Nations, Franklin D. Roose? velt, Democratic Vice-Presidential nominee, declared in an address here to-dny. "The Republicans are playir<r a shell game on the American people," the nominee declared, because "they are still busy circulating the story' that England has six votes to America's one." "It is just the other way," he went on. "As a matter of fact, the United States has about twelve votes in the assembly. Until last week I had two of them myself and now Secretary Daniels has them. You know I have ? hail something to do with the running j of a couple of little republics. Fact.? are that 1 wrote Hayti's constitution | myself, and if I do say it, I think it a pretty good constitution." Mr. Roosevelt said that Hayti and ! the Dominican Republic, Panama, Cuba and Central American countries, who had at least twelve votes in the league's assembly, ail regarde?! Uncle Sam as a guardian and big brother, and that this country practica'V would have Woman's Vote Welcome, Says Harding; Civilization Is Saved, Declares Cox MARION, Ohio, Aug. 18s?Commenting on the action of the Ten? nessee- Legislature to-day in completing ratification of the suffrage amendment, Senator Harding said: "All along I have wished for the completion of ratifio#tion, and have said so, and I am glad to have all the citizenship of the United States take part in the Presidential election. The Republican party will welcome the response of American womanhood to its appeal to the confidence of all our people." COLUMBUS, Ohio, Aug. 18.?The following statement was issued to-day by Governor Cox: "The civilization of the world is saved. The mothers of America will stay the hand of war and repudiate those who trifle with a great principle. The action of the Tennessee Legislature has another signifi? cance. It is an earnest of the Democratic pblicy to pay its platform obligations." 27,000,000 Women Have Right to Vote Tennessee's Ratification Gives 9,500,000 More Right to Vote for Next President in the Fall Fight Begun in 1848 Campaign Opened in Seneca Falls Started Movement Which Enveloped World Woman suffrage was won for the women of all the states in the Union when Tennessee, th'e thirty-sixth state, ratified the Federal amendment. Ap? proximately 27,000,000 women will be entitled to vote in the Presidential election this fall. State suffrage al? ready ha^l enfranchised 17.500,000, and ratification adds to this number 9,500, 000. Thii marks the end of the women's campaign for the ballot which began obscurely in a little meeting in Seneca Falls, N. Y., in 1848, swept across this country, and extendea the political freedom of women to nearly every other nation in the civilized world. Fifteen states in the United States already had conferred full franchise rights on women, and in fifteen others women were entitled to vote for Presi? dent and for certain municipal offices, but not for members of Congress. The suffrage amendment resolution was passed by the Congress on June 4, 19li). Its wording was that of the orig? inal Susan B. Anthony amendments, drawn up by the pioneer suffragist soon after the Civil War had enfranchised the colored people and following the form of the Fifteenth Amendment. It reads: "The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state' on account of sex. "Congress shall have power by ap? propriate legislation to enforce the provisions of this article." Dates of Ratification Thirty-six states ratified the woman suffrage amendment in the following order: R?In Regular Session (10) S?In Special Session (20) In 1919 1. Illinois .R June 10 2.

Special Sessions Called The fact that many state legislatures ; did not hold regular sessions in 1920, and would be required to call special sessions if the .suffrage amendment were to become effective in time f?ir the Presidential elections, was the last great obstacle the suffrage movement had to overcome. Even in states ? where the women had voted for I many years and where ratification was more or less an accepted fact the Gov? ernors hesitated to call special ses- ! sions, for reasons of economy, or be? cause of local political issues which threatened to become embarrassing. Governor Allen of Kansas came, to the Colby Agrees To Speed Final ?Suffrage Step Secretary of State Will Proclaim Ratification as! Soon as Tennessee Sends the Official Notice; Pioneers To Be Honored Anthony, Slanton and Molt Busts To Be Placed in Capitol at Washington ! WASHINGTON, Aug. 18. Prompt; promulgation of the Federal woman ? suffrage amendment, should the action of the Tennessee Legislature to-day be confirmed, was promised by Secretary Colby when word of the vote at Nash? ville reached the State Department. He was prepared, Mr. Colby said, to issue the necessary proclamation immediate? ly on receipt of official notice that Tennessee had ratified the amendment. j When the word of ratification came | officials of the National Woman's party ! at once sought assurances from Secre? tary Colby that the official action pro- j mulgating the amendment would not I be delayed. They also urged their rep? resentatives in Nashville to see that no time was lost in forwarding the official notice to the State Department. The woman's party also announced that steps toward a national celebra-1 tion at the cankar liad been taken. The' date will be fixed later, and included in ! the ceremonies will be the presentation to the national Capitol of marble busts' of the rtio of suffrage pioneers Susan j B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott -which it is hop'-d i will be placed either in the Hall of Fame or the rotunda of the great ! building. The statue of Frances Wil lard, presented by Illinois, is the only; woman's figure now in the Hall of Fame. There still is suffrage work to be ? done, the National American Woman ; I Suffrage Association emphasized in a | I statement issued from the headquar- I i ters here yesterday. The association j takes it for granted that opposition to the Susan B. Anthonv amendment will i continue to develop and will show itself in court action to prevent the amend- i ment becoming operative. The association declares it is pre-j paring to meet any attacks which may be made in this direction. "It expects the Secretary of State to proclaim the amendment at once as ratified," the' statement says. "This would seem to be automatically inevitable. Even if the amendment is to be the subject of later attack, the Secretary of State's ; immediate task is the proclamation.1 Without the proclamation there is no ? amendment to attack." The word "male" will not have to bei stricken from state constitutions, be? cause it is "read out by the amendment ? itself," the statement asserts. The opinion of Charles E. Hughes is quoted in support, of this contention. "Can the Presidential election be thrown out if women participate in it?" the statement asks. Its answer is: "Opponents could no more throw out the Presidential election or find any; grounds upon which to raise such a ; hope than they could cause the sun, to | stsnd still." But the suffragists, the , statement says, wi?'?M have ground to! throw out an election if women were denied the rigrit to participate. "Suffragists long ago ceas?jd to je frightened at anti-suffrage threats," the statement say-, "none of which was ever quite so fatuous as this one."
