‘Get Into Politics? Slogan Is
Adopted , but ‘What Side?
Is Question.
CHICAGO, Feb. 20.—With the merg-
Vag of the National Woman Suffrage
association at its fifty-first convention
into the league of Women Voters, Carrie
Chapman Catt, president of the suffrage
association, is not wholly sanguine as to
the outcome of the league. The league
has come into being.
It has a board of ten directors, three of
them elected from the country at large
and seven districts into which the coun
try is divided. The regional directors
are Intended to further state legislation,
to establish contact between the far dis
tant parts of the country. A decision to
establish a headquarters at Washington
illustrates the serious intent of the or
ganisation toward federal legislation.
A coherent, constructive request for the
legislation desired by the league will bo
made by committees which the league
will send to the national .political party
In an interview at the close of a stormy
session when the convention adopted
“Get Into the rarties” as the slogan,
Mrs. Catt said:
"The League of Women Voters is an
experiment. There is no organization
among men to compare with it or to
give it precedent. It will be a plain
test of the quality of women’s character
and intelligence as to whether it can
be done or not. If it is not a success
the split will come on the rock of par
Already women are withdrawing from
the league on party grounds. As early
as Monday afternoon, when the regional
caucuses were being held, there were
rumors of much dissension among the
delegates as to choice of candidates for
regional directors, the United States be
ing divided into seven groups of states,
each group composing a region. These
seven regional directors, together with
three directors chosen at large, are to
compose the governing body, according
to the new constitution adopted by the
It is felt by many of the delegates
that this constitution will so be inter
preted as to give these directors al
most unlimited power, and republican
and democratic women fought for their
own candidates.
“I am pretty sure some women will
fall out of the league because they are
too partisan to get tthe broad vision
needed to work in such an organization
nith success,” continued Mrs. Catt. “It
will be the greatest' possible test for
the new women voters of the country,
and if they stand the test it will be as
great a triumph.”
There is no doubt but that the under
current of the convention was strongly
partisan ever since the opening session.
“My ideal for the League of Women
Voters,” said Mrs. Catt, "is to see it
stand solidly as a body for improved
’eglslation. Improved election methods,
higher standards in all political parties,
and especially for an improved quality
of American citizenship.
“This could not be gained during a
single election. It would have to be a
matter of evolution and time.”
When asked if there might not be
seme movements so general tn their ap
peal as ■*{> bind women together and
thus avoid the partisan split feared In
the league, Mrs. Catt said that while
she felt all women were fairly single
minded on such subject as social hy
giene, child labor and kindred matters
that even these were controversial.

“Not at all, Jane. Not at all! I had all
the comforts the poor natives had. If
it was not an impossible habitation for
other human beings, why should it prove
impossible for me?”
I looked at the girl In astonishment.
Plainly, the tender soul which had been
missing from that beautiful body had
found its way back at last.
"Nobody ought to exist under the con

thousands do—the poverty stricken in

more thousands than ever In the history
of the world, I suppose. Nobody can

I said.
