That statement Vas made by Dr. Sarah II. Lockrey, of this city, who es corted several members of the Pennsyl vania branch, National Woman's party, to Washington.

"The arrests," said Doctor Lockrey, "were a violation of our constitutional rights and cannot be Justified by the most rabid antlsuffraglst. The House of Itepresentatlves has passed tho suf frage amendment, but to gain any re sults from that action we must win the approval of the Senate. For seven months that body has been silent. Why? "What are the forces that are work ing against the liberation of wqmen? These are the questions that must be answered. -"Tho charge that our activity is a reflection upon the President Is absurd, and. In fact, too childish to consider.

A fine capable girl she was, too, but no chance to prove it. No individuality no personal part in the bigger things no opportunity for real advancement. Somebody suggested Noiseless Typewriters the salesman's anti-noise arguments sounded reasonable and several machines were put in for a trial. They are still there. "Number nine" is now "Miss Private Secretary." She does more work better work more important work than ever before. And she does it in less ti?ne.

It marked the birth of the dictating machine, which Edison, as an important part of his life's work, has developed into the modern Ediphone. It was one problem to make a machine talk; it was another and equally great problem to make it behave, so that business men who are now writing over a million Better Letters a day with The Ediphone would have a secretaryy with ideal abilities. A third problem that Edison's initiative has solved is the national service behind The Ediphone a service that enables you to call upon vour local Ediphone office with . the assurance that they have the system for the installation of the equipment and its future maintenance, to insure an in vestment which will pay for itself twice a year in efficiency and economy.
