Politics Being Discussed Over
Teacups Now, Lead: ,
er Says.
Politics Is being talked about
more and more by women over the
tea cups, according to Mrs.' Lenna ;
Lowe Yost, who has returned to :
Washington from her home at ;
Huntington, W. .Va. i
"In attending social gatherings
during the last month In West Virginia,
I found that politics had become
an accepted'subject of conversation,"
said Mrs. Yost. "Women
have much more definite Ideas '
on politics than thoy had a year
ago. They are becoming more and
more.,aware, of the fact that government-must
>he through parties.
Today It Is ndt an uncommon thing
to hear-two women In V chance
encounter on a etreot co'rner talk- !
Ing about a candidate or a political
Issue."
Mrs. Yost held an unusual posl- ]
uwi ?or ? woman ai tne recent ;
Republican state convention in
West Virginia. She was chairman
of the platform committee. The
registration for t~he( primary in .
West Virginia was greatly increased
by that of Republican women,' ac- ,
cording to Mrs. Yost. Among the j
successful women candidates was
Mrs. Woodson T. Wills, nominee
For the House of Delegates from
the county in which the capital
city, Charleston, is situated. Mrs.
Wills is the former president of
the West Virginia Federation of
Clubs.
An instance of political chiValry
in West Virginia was the voluntary
withdrawal of half the men from
the Republican county committee
In Marion County in order that
women might bo given equal representation
on the committee, according
to Mrs. Yost. Members of
county committees are elected to
party office. Many women have '
been anDointed tn fin vsmmni-w

In which there Is typhoid. This
report classed the water as unfit
for use. The rather unexpected
discussion ot the water situation
cr.me as a climax to the milk
Bttuation which suggested Itself
by one Instance in the city In
which milk was beyond a doubt
Ihe carrier of diphtheria from a
dairyman's family into a consumer's
family In this city. This Incident
seemed to warrant the-assumption
that the ordinance governing
the distribution ot milk In
the City probably was not being
lived up to and Doctor Howard
called the old committee to take
up the matter again, substituting
Dr. Charles H. Layman for Judge
las. A. Meredith. Dr. A. B..Smith
sbd Dr. J. B', Clinton are the other
members ot the committee.
Instead of the usual address by
tome viBltor today, the educational
committee had arranged for
lalks by three members ot tne
ilub who were to dlocuss those features
of the club which they felt
tad done then the most good.
Dave Osgood was the first
speaker. He emphasized the good
fellowship that resulted from
membership, and voiced his need
for just the kind of assocl&talon
with business men that thh club
afforded him. He spoke ot the
pride he felt In being one of a
band of men who were ablo to put
over such things as, the good milk
campaign. Reforrlng to the educational
side of . the club, he said
that the city did not afford much
in tbo way of such musical treats
as he had enjoyed at the club luncheons
outside of the church, and
that these were too few. He referred
to the travel talks of the
Rev. J. C. Broomfield, and said
that they had amply repaid him
for the time and money he spent
in the club. He closed an interesting
talk which was listened to
attentively with an appeal not to
nuukit, uui. iu criticize construe- i
Uvely, and to remember that each
ohe 1b a unit in an organization ot
one hundred and thirty members.
Capt Rollo J. Conley was the
next speaker, and he said that
since Osgood had made the most
ot his speeoh he would take a new
lind and criticize in a,way that he
thought might be helpful. He
particularly referred to members
voting in favor.ot club endorsement
of some' movement which
they at-heart did not endorse, and >
tor which they, did not intend to ;
work. He suggested that the ,
Inclination' to "go along" as he ]
Bxpreseed.it might bo obviated by !
the secret ballot. ? ,
A. Ray' Mapel wis the last j
speaker. He also emphasized the j
value of the association ot busln- ,
Bss men In which their hhop add
office cares were left behind. He ,
slso bore upon the inspiration one ,
received from being associated
with men- who were unselfish in ,
iciiuw-mb obi viuo vu ioe cummua' I
Ity, and held that It,kept the right .
viewpoint before the membership.
The happy ticket holder today ,
was Jim Shoemaker -who. drew a <
handsome tie, the' gift of James ,

Co. Arthur Frey Is the donor neat ,

the announcement, that the . Rev. ,

luncheon was delightfully taken
