't SfiSt Ki% REASONS ARE SET OUT C:' ipf mi a-* [That the Wish tor the Ballot Is Backed by Thousands of Women 1 in the State, Is Her Contention. *11 ''rt&fi A final -word to the voters of the state of Iowa, has been addressed by Miss Flora Dimlap, president of the Iowa Equal Suffrage association, on the eve of the election, in which she reviews the campaign in flavor of the equal suffrage amendment and asks the support of the voters for this. The letter is as follows: It is ndt often that one state has an opportunity to write a plank in the platforms of two great political parties. If the suffrage amendment carries In Iowa on Monday there is no ques tion but that the voters of this state will have written equal suffrage for women into the national platforms of both the republican and democratic parties. Iowa has bad a large share in na »-. tional movements and the suffrage workers of the state are confident' that the vote on Monday will keep Iowa to the front in national affairs, The sufCrage organizations of the state have carried on a vigprous cam paign for the past year. Influential and capable women in every county in tbe state have taken part in the campaign. Ttte question is often asked, "Do Iowa women want the bal lot?" The answer is "Yes." Almost every organisation of women of size and influence In the state have en dorsed suffrage and urged their mem bers to assist in tbe oampaign. Thousands are at Work. Two thousand women are enrolled at state sufCrage headquarters as county, town and township chairmen. These are only the leaders. Under them acre thousands of committee members and working suffragists. Every oounty in the state has a cen tral organization- These suffrage workers are home women, church workers, dub women, working, busi ness and professional women. They are all Iowa, women. Tfaey have joined forces and all are working for the ballot. They are working for this one Issue, woman suffrage. Thesfe women appeal to the voters of the state to vote "yes," on Mon day. ijhey ask for an affirmative vote 'because tbey believe that women should "bare a voice In the govern ment under which they live, whose Jaws they obey, and a part of whose taxes they pay. Because they believe the "yirtMWM of Che state should hare a voice In making the conditions un hi der which they rear their children. Because they believe the sixteen thou sand women engaged in farming should have a voice in making the tax levy. Because they believe the twen ty-ftve thousand women school teach ers who are engaged in teaching future citizens, should themselves be Cull cftizess. Because they believe the one hundred and thirteen thou "Band wage-earning women in the state should have the same represen tation as the wage-earning men. Be cause they believe the women of Iowa are the equals of the women of the twelve states already having full suffrage. Because the txperience of the twelve full suffrage states proves that woman suffrage is a practical working issue and adds no burden to the tax payer. Because they wish Iowa to have the honor of placing equal- suffrage plaxiks in the platforms Actual Value in YOUR Clothes SRSB9P of two great political parties. Be cause they believe that women are, as a whole, as economical, as fair, and as interested in good government as men as a whole. Finally, because they believe that it is just and fair that all men and all women shall have an equal voice in government. Because they believe these things, the women of Iowa ask the men of Iowa to vote "yes" on Monday on the constitutional amendment granting suffrage to women and because they believe that the men of Iowa are just arid fair, they are confident that the suffrage amendment will carry.
