right for him to allow slot machines

chief. But O'Brien refused and was

to bother with him on the machine

Jane Addams will vote for Wilson.
After many weeks, in which women
on both sides came to Miss Addams
with facts, arguments, prayers and
suggestions, Miss Addams at last has
definitely come out for the present
Because Miss Addams founded
Hull house, served on the Chicago
vice commission and was a trustee
of the board of education, a leader
of women Progressives in the 1912

been called "the foremost citizen of
Chicago" there is more than ordi

club circles that along with Mrs.
Bowen's coming out for Hughes
would also be Jane Addams. Miss
Addams is staying at the home of

plans on no formal statement her
vote goes for Wilson. She said:
"I am ill and not able to do any po
litical work. I do not think I shall
make any statement formally declar
ing myself When I am ask4d the
direct question about my vote I re
ply that I shall vote for Wilson,"
