technique. and In spirit. The open

by Yera Fredowa In a strange set

The tremendous climax of th? play
cannot be surpassed.
Alfred Bergen's excellent baritone
voie? and well selcted songs won
him heavy applause. The "Mar

of the Republic" were especially
well received. As a concluding
number, he sang "The Hanging of
Danny Deever" with power and
feeling. Mr. Bergen wore a service
band on his sleeve with three ?tar?
on his arm which he said waa* the
Christinas gift of his mother who
wished him to wear It for her three

Editors Say What
the Rest of Us Think
All over the South leading newspapers
are calling on Congress to pass the Federal
suffrage amendment as the best expedient
for securing the nation-wide suffrage that all
concede is surely coming.
Th-ese editorial utterances come from
leading papers in every State in the ?South.
The Atlanta Constitution has spoken, the
Houston Chronicle, the Richmond, Va., Jour
nal, the Mobile Item, the Macon, Ga., Tele
graph, the Charleston, S. C., Post and a host
of others.
See What They Say:
"It is to be hoped that Congress will supplement
the good work it has done in connection with prohibi
tion by promptly passing the resolution for submitting
woman suffrage."?(News and Observer, Raleigh, N. C.)
"Why should there be so much solicitude and alarm
for State rights and State sovereignty provoked by the
threatened passage of the Anthony amendment while
the prohibition amendment is viewed either with un
concern or approval? We do not discern the exact dif
ference 'twixt tweedledee and tweedledum."?(The
Times, Selma, Ala.)
"Let no man who is opposed to woman suffrage
because of special interests or of tradition-bound intel
ligence attempt to hide behind any plea of State rights
as a defense for a vote cast against the submission of
the Federal Amendment. In this day of world war,
* * * it would be puerile for a man to attempt to defend
opposition to the Federal Amendment by any twad
dle about State rights.* * * It would be fitting that the
Legislature of Kentucky should be the first to ratify
the Federal Amendment."?(The Herald, Lexington,
"The extension of suffrage to women throughout
the nation upon equal terms with men?which is nearly
at hand?will be the crowning glory of American po
litical achievement since the republic was founded."?
( The Georgian, Atlanta, Ga.)
"The Congress of the United States should at the
forthcoming session make provision for submitting to
the States for ratification an amendment to the Con
stitution conferring suffrage upon women. * * * Tbe
time is opportune for the submission of the Amend
ment."?( Tennessean and American, Nashville, Tenn.)
