By Special Corespondent.
TREKTON. Nov. 16:—"With the

in the equal suffrage column as the
result of the rwent election the mem
bers of the New Jersey Women's
Suffrage Association today gathered
here to plan for the capture of New
Jersey in 1920 when the question may
be voted upon again in this state.
The occasion was the opening of
the twenty-eighth annual convention
of the organization. Following busi
ness sessions this morning and after
noon the delegates will attend a din
ner this evening at the Contemporary
Club. The presidents of the different
New Jersey women's organizations
ore to be guests of honor at this
function. Talks will be given by Mrs.
C. W. Stockton, chairman of the New
Jersey division of the Women's Com
mittee of the Council of National De
fense; Mrs. John R. Schermerhorn,
president of the New Jersey Fed era
tion of Women's CIntis, and Miss
Cornelia Bradford, of Whittier House,
Jersey City.
Dr. Anna Howard Shaw will be the
headliner at tonight's mass meeting
in the assembly chamber at the State
House. She will speak on "Woman
Patriots and War Service." Address
es also will be made by Congressman
Elijah C. Hutchinson, of this city;
Mrs. Raymond Hrown, vice chairman
of the New York State Woman's Suf
frage party, and Mrs. Edward F.
Frickert. president of the New Jersey
Woman's Suffrage Association.
Equal suffrage was beaten in New
Jersey in 1915 by fifty thousand ma
The house committee of the Rari
tan Yacht CJufo have arranged for a
ι stag and smoker for club members
and guests at the clubhouse in Water
j street for next Thursday night.
The entertainment for the evening
will be furnished by Malcolm Shac
kleford, of the Star Lyceum Bureau,
whose inimitable manner of telling
stories with a strong southern dialect
and of singing, all the time accom
panying himself on the banjo, have
made him one of the most popular
lyceum entertainers on the circuit
The committee are planning for
another number for the program, as
well as the usual music and good
time to follow.
The Initial meeting of the Red
Cross home service department, held
last night at St. Peter's parish house,
was most interesting. It was re
gretted that Mayor TenBroeck could
not open the meeting, as planned,
because of his presence at the dinner
to the boys who go next week to
camp, and later in the evening a Y.
M. C. A. campaign session claimed
Mrs. O. W. Ramsay, chairman of
the department, gave some of her
experiences In practical study of so
cial conditions In New York City, as
did Mrs. E. F. Spofford, who has been
taking a course of Instruction in the
metropolis also. The scope of home
service work was outlined, as it
touches the lires of families of all
who are engaged In the nation's serv
ice. The necessity of looking after
housing and playground conditions In
this city was especially mentioned,
and cooperation of all existing wel
fare forces requested.
Public aptivity of this department
of the Red Cross is not contemplated
immediately, but training classes will
be instituted along the same lines as
the first aid and surgical dressings
classes, for eocîîi] service workers;
local conditions will be reviewed, sta
tistics gathered and general prepara
tion made for effective handling of
many cases whloh later will need the
attention of this department
Among those present were repre
sentatives from the Board of Educa
tion, Board of Health, City Poor De
partment, Home for the Aged, Civics
and other committees of the Woman's
Club, Day Nursery managers, teach
ers and others interested in social
