EVERY WOMAN SUFFRAGIST
IN 1919, IS THE SLOGAN
Special to tkf EVENINO NZWa.
Trenton, Dec. 15:—"Every woman
a suffragist by 1919" Is, to be the
slogan of the New Jersey Woman's
Suffrage Association from this time
until the submission of the question
to the voters four years hence, ac
cording to Mrs. E. F. Feickert, the
president, in response to a question
as to the future of the cause.
"We are more optimistic than
ever, especially since the vote from
the West In the last political cam
paign put the women on the map and
th· politicians realize that the women
are an Important factor," declared
Mrs. Feickert. "It Is my own per
sonal belief that by 1920 there will
be a clamor for the women's votes in
the Eastern states lp order to offset
the West in this respect.
The head of tho suffrage organiza
tion was here to aid the Trenton suf
fragists to outline their work for the
coming winter. She was the guest at
a dinner party, at which the leader
urged active personal work among
the women of the state. She suggest
ed to her hearers to get out in each
ward and enroll workers in the local
organizations.
Mrs. Feickert announced that the
Trenton suffragists would have, be
ginning January 1, the help of Miss
Rita Klssln. of New York, whom the
state organization has engaged as α
field organizer. There are now 283
branches of the suffrage association
with an enrollment of 60,000 mem
bers.
