The Uepiiblican women formerly met

work of Kniergetiev Aid from any con

Women voters, Mr. Pepper said,
have a real oppe-tunity te extend the
i-ausc of geed government in this city.
Can Start New Era
"Since the worn- n hnve reechrd the

starting neint of n nev era. If the
women nre te accomplish the referma
tien of Philadelphia In the way of geed
government It must be through the
power of an organization well ceueeiveei
with a determination that It vlll grew.
"It is the time te get a fairly rep

with each member engaged in nn activity
that will lit in with the 'erk of the

them as a negligible mass.
"At the present time the City Com

"Women are tlie only persons who
arc big enough te break invay from the
pursuit of factional anib'.tien. The
people are waiting for seme'thing te be

yours will be the means of starting
something definite. If tlie women here
will earn the message te ethers, start
an orginnztien and verk with persis
tence, you will sturt n force that may
mean the rcgenerntie'i of the commu

Mr. Pepper emphasized the necessity
of candor In politics and the need of

"Yeu really can't tlnd men big enough

Mr. Pepper cautioned his hearers
