to. WADSWORTH FIGHT INSUFFCONVENTION isolation Thanking Will IL Hays Construed as Approval of Miss Hay's Stand. TAItTISANISM AN ISSUE 3Ic'rgcs Into National Loniruo ' of Women Voters With 2,- 500,000 Members. Bv a Staff Corrtiponient of Tun Sun and New Toik Hiu.u. Chicago, Feb, 14. By passlne reso lutions thanking the chairman of the Republican National Committee and the cti&Jrman of the Democratic committee for their support In the flsht for the franchlee the National American Wo man Suffrage Association In convention here to-day manifested Its nonpartisan policy. This policy was tho keynote of a later session when tho association, which has existed for fifty-one years, was merged Into the National League of Women Voters, with a UeVgatlon representing two and a half million members. Into the Republican resolution many delegates read a deeper meaning. It Is eo worded that It might be Interpreted to mean that the women voters, who are going to align themselves with the younger element of the two parties, up hold those who fight against the ene mies of political progress. It moans that Democrats and Republicans will be banded together against a common foe. In thus tacitly approving the cam paign against a foo to suffrage it was takon by some to mean that the con vention approves Miss Mary Garrett Hay's antl-Wadsworth fight The Hays resolution was Introduced by Sirs. Richard Edwards of Indiana. Miss Rose Young, head of the Suffrage Association's publicity bureau, arose and sold "As a Democrat I want to speak in favor of this resolution. The antt-suffraglsta accuse Mr. Hays of us ing his post to have the suffrage amend ment ratified. That's no crime. They are fighting Mr. Hays because he stands by Miss Hay, who Is fighting one of their leaders. Senator James W. Wads worth, Jr., of New York. "It 's a partisan resolution," objected a delegate. "I hold that It Is In the province ot this body to thank any person who has done anything for us," Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt, chairman of the con vention, ruled. "Yesterday we thanked President Wilson and to-day we thank the chairman of the Republican National Committee." The resolution to Mr. Hays reads : Whereas, as the leaders of tho lttle group of women known as the intt'SUffragists for a decade have helped to defeat woman suffrage by llscreditbg all who advocated It are low directing their familiar slanders .0 Mr. William IL Hays, chairman of the Republican National Commit tee, because they say ho has influ enced ratification In several Btatea by appealing to tho younger element In the Republican party for the sup port of suffrage ; be It Rttolved, That the Notional Amer ican Woman Suffrage Association, with 2,800,000 organized women, con gratulates the Republican party upon having a chairman who is astute enough to Tecognlxe the certain trend of publlo affairs and to attempt to lead his party in step with the Inevi table mavcii of human progress. We exftnd to Mi, Hays our sincere gratitude for any and all help he may have rendered In behalf of rati fication and assure him that our members, being progressive women, hope to align themselves with the "younger element of the parties of their chol'.i. Mrs. Edwards then proposed a resolu tion of thanks to Homer Cummlngs. chairman of the Democratic ' National Committee. Miss Hay and Mrs. Fred erick Nathan of New York Jumped to their feet to second It The question of partisanship stirred tho afternoon gathering at which tho suffrage association was permanently burled and the National League of Women Voters roso from its grnVe. The National League of Woman Vot ers has a membership now of two and a half million, with representatives in practically every state. m r.nit elected chairman for the organization . procedure. Mrs. Halsey W. Wilson of New York city was chosen secretary. A board of ten national directors will guide the destinies of tho league for tho first year. They will elect thoir nwn chairman. A salaried national manager will have charge of tho national work under the supervision of tha bonrd. There will be seven regional directors and an executlvo . council comnoscd of presidents of Stato auxiliaries. Already mere nro leagues ot women voters In many of the States. Democratic women leaders, who have declared that tho National League of v omen voters even now Is partisan, ob Jcctcd to any feature of tho orcantrti tlon plan which might be construed by them as affording a loophole for the assumption of control by their political enemies. Mrs, Catt attempted to quiet weir rears on this score. ''The League cf Women Voters Is going to be a semt-pol!tlcal organization, that Is, it is going to want legislation passed, and In order to accomplish that It must be friends with tho Democrats of Alabama and the Republicans of New Hampshire. I hope tho League of Women Voters will sr, do Its work as to teach the nation that there Is something higher than tha partisanship which Is to stand pat, no matter what happens. I have perfect confidence In the con scientious purpose and the high moral outlook of the League of Women Voters." Sirs. Raymond Brown of Nnw York and Mra Mary K. Sherman of Illinois were appointed a committee to draw un a league constitution. Tho National American Worrun Suf frage Association voted to establish a department of politics at Brjn Mawr College and a department of preventive medlclao at tho women s Medical Col lege of Pennsylvania at Philadelphia, and to Indorse a chair of citizenship at Barnard College as a memorial to Dr. Anna Howard Shaw, one of the asso ciation's presidents.
