That the polls ot msmbers of Conirrrss
taken by various press bureaus on the
5uffrag resolution, which will proliably II
be vot J on n-xt veek in tht- IIoi'so,
are greatly underestimated is the state
ment madr by th- ("onpressional commit
tee of the National American Woman
Snfl"rae- Association. These range from
as low a W to as high as 150 votes,
Kither f these figures is far too low,
according to the suff i a.ge fount.
For weeks and months members of the
committee have been Interview ing Con
gressmen with reference to their attitude
on the suffrage amendment. Tin resultb
of the interviews have been filed In a
cord index. Ipon this data the sulTra
glets base their estimates.
The information so recorded, however,
is confidential. Mem Iters re willing to
givo expression to their ..ws privately
when they will not do it for publica
tion. It is for this reason that the suf
frage commute claims that its own pon
i.s the more accurate.
At th same time it Is recognized by the
advocates of suffrage that the vote for
their resolution will b- affected by the
fact that it was r ported out with the
prohibition resolution. Their full strength
will not bo showu in the te, they say.
