In the midst of the applause that
followed her address, calls for
Lord Astor were heard. He stepped
forward "liver since my wife has
taken an Interest in politics. 1 have

Not a member of the Virginia
delegation of the League of Wom
en Voters was absent when the
Old Dominion women met with
Senator Claude A. Swanson. After
presenting their program, they ad
journed to the immigration commit
teeroom In the Senate, where the
Virginia lawmakers were tendering
a lunch to the delegates and to
Lady Astor. . , . ,
?1 don't believe Virginia ever had
a daughter who loved her more,
she told her assembled friends. It
is curious that I who loved her so
had to go t" a far country. Now !
love England as much as I do Vir
ginia. But If Virginia thinks 1 am a
worthy daughter, let her men en
courage her women to take part In
public life. |
"So matter what policy prevails.
America will not want to progress
alone. I have been told not to men

shall call It the league of peace.
Need To Be <?red For.
White the members of the League
of Women Voters gathered at the
Pan-American Union to witness the
planting of the "first international
tree." Lady Astor entertained the
members of the National Tress Club
and its guests, tl.e National Worn
en's Press Club, with a chat on the
place of the woman in politics
When she aserted that "all we
women can put Into politics is the
live that will help men do right.*.
Miss Alice Robertson. Representative
from Oklahoma, nodded approval.
Miss Robertson, the guest of the
I'ress Club.was called to the platform
and introduced lo the woman M I*.
"You men arc just boys." Lady As
tor declared "You need the women
to take care of you. You know the
hard lot of the man who lives alone.
Look at your socks! So It is in poli
tics. You need the women lo take
care of the little things which you
men overlook."
Delegates Vlult senators.
The 1.000 accredited delegates to
the Third Annual Convention of the
League of Women Voters arrived
yesterday morning- shortly after 11
o'clock, and proceeded to the offices
of senior Senators of the various
States, where they made known
their legislative wishes. Reduction
of armament to establish permanent
peace was the outstanding desire
expressed generally. Independent
citizenship for women, and passage
of the Sterling-Tower hill were
among other requests placed he
fore the law makers. Many of the
Senators entertained the delegates
at luncheon at the Senate. Other
women were guests of Washington
International Tree Planted.
With fitting pageantry, the "In
ternational tree" was planted In the
irarden of the Pan American Unl"n.
The delegates hurriedly returned
from the Wilson demonstration fot
the ceremony. In a great circle
about the tree were placed the flags
of the nations of the Pan American
T'nion. To music of the Marine
P.and. a processional was led into
the south garden by Pirector Gen
eral L. S Rowe. Vice President and
Mrs. Coolldge. Mrs. Hughes, and
Ambassador from Chile. Sen r D?n
Ileltran Mathieu. and composed of
the delegates to the Pan American
Woman's Conference called by the
league in Baltimore last week. The

their own flags and listened to
greetings from Mr. Rowe and Mr. I

"Ideals do not remain slution.i-y. j

That the best efforts of women
to* ard ser uring international
fiiendtiness is in the development
of intelligent public opinion were
the conclusions drown by Secretary
of State Charle* E. Hughes and
Sir Auckland Oedde? at a mass
meeting at Memorial Continental
Hnskm Give* Vlew?.
"You can't grow a fine human crop
hv statute." declared Mr. Hughes.
Woman will have a most construc
tive and conserving Influence in our
political life, but her Important con- |
tribution will be found in what she
does to protect the basis of society j
itself, the home.
"I have no doubt we live in ar
age of conferences." the Secretary
continued. "There Is much talk of
basic differences between the Latins
and the Anglo-Saxons, but I am
more concerned with the resem
blances. It Is a slow process, the
process of international enllght
ment. Peace cannot be secured by
forms of words or declarations or
by formal procedure where the
spirit of peace is absent. There Is
only one cure for the present dls- 1
order: face the facts, deal with
causes not symptoms, establish con
fidence before credit, for If you
have not trust, you cannot extend
"The matter with you women is
that you are all too ignorant" de
clared Sir Auckland Geddes. "Un
less you get out of that ignorance,
you're going to be a great danger.
You've got to study the things
which vitally affect your nations. In
giving the women the votes, the
governments that did so only added
to their difrtcultles."
On behalf of the twenty-two out
of a possible twenty-four nations
represented at the convention. Miss
Bertha Lutz. of Brazil; Mme. Kter de
Calvo. of Panama, and Miss Margue
rite Conroy. of Peru, extended fare
well greetings and assurances of
co-operation In the progress of Pan
American friendship.
Mrs. Maude Wood Park, president
of the National League of Women
Voters, under whose auspices the
Pan-American conference was called,
presided over the mass meeting, and
Pr Rowe and Ambasador Mathieu
made addresses of congratulation,
predicting that this was the first of
many ?onferenocs to eome.
