remain in even thinking minds that
women were inferior.
But women have robbed men of
that premises by taking and holding
the same responsible positions, by
standing side by side with them at
the bar of law, by competing with
them as physician's-,- as artists, as
architects, as superintendents of fac
tories, and even in the more narrow
field of invention, and in these call
ings they have npt underbid men, but
have demanded the same price for
their services.
And the day is not far distant if
one is to judge by the pluck and per
sistence women in the lower ranks of
employments are displaying in their
battle for a higher wage when
there will not be a trade where wom
en underbid men even though they
must fight not only the greed of men
employers, but the jealousy of men

- Lieutenant Governor Barrett
O'Hara, who is running for the U. S.
Senate, is going to pull a stunt begin
ning next Sunday that's going to
bring some human interest into the
field of political discord.
He's going to take four young
men and four young girls, who are
going to be married Saturday, on a
thirty-day auto trip. They're going
to preach the gospel of marriage.
And they couldn't preach a better a
more human gospel no matter how
hard they tried.
O'Hara is going to urge all the
young that love to marry. He's go
ing to even break old traditions and
urge the young $15-a-week clerks to
marry if they're in love and the girls
are willing. "Take your chances on
an economic struggle," he's going to
tell them. "Don't you mind if some
hard-fisted boss pays you starvation
wages. Grab the girl and tell the
rest to go to Hades. Marry, but be
sure the girlie won't suffer, and you'll
be a whole lot happier in the future.
"I know the miserable conditions
that prevent fine young men and
women from marrying. Bill asks the
girl he loves to be his wife. She
says 'Yes.' And then they begin to
plan. But Bill fails ,to set a date. He
watches for the hopeful bulge in his
lean pay envelope that fails to come.
So Billy and the girl don't marry,
when every law of God and nature
commands them to. And two young
fives, replete with golden possibilities,
are wrecked. And the state suffers
by such blasted romances. But Big
Business continues to pay rotten
The eight young people who are
going with C'Hara after their mar
riages Saturday are Frank J. Jacob
son and Blanche Holden, John D.
Peterson and Alice Morton, De Loss
Kahl and Myrtle Ferrin and Richard
H. Colby and Mina Brown.
O'Hara is also going to try and
have Governor Dunne and the vari
ous civic governments and the
churches declare Sunday "Get-Married"
Sunday. It'll he a fine thing if
it goes through.

"I see a cload of dust approaching."
"Reinforcements, sir?"
"Er yes no, curse it, it's a sight
seeing automobile!".
