It is an evil In that it has
wrought a vital Injury to the nation
by changing woman's ideals toward

It underestimated home influences
and substituted legislative enact

For more than a century women
have been strugsUns to secure the
ballot, bellevine that they might

None of the reforms promised by
suffrage advocates have been ful
filled and it is only fair to say that
the strongest argument against
woman suffrage are the conditions

longest in operation.
