FIRE OF SUFFS
Women Work to Secure Needed Vote.
Byrnes Making Effort for Soldiers'
Washington, Feb. 22.-Determined
Ahat tie woman suffrage amendment
o the constitution shall be favorably
xoted upon before congress adjourns
)n March fourth and lacking ;but one
vote to secure It, suffrage leaders to
lay turned their batteries on Senator
Smith, of South Carolina, Trenimell of
Florida, and Shields of Tennessee, be
ieving that from these three senators
the necessary vote might be secured.
Senator Smith is being besieged with
every possible reason today to change
lIis former votes ol this matter and
lineup with votes for women delega
tions calling upon him and demanding
that he change his vote. 'So far 'he
shows no signs of acquiescing and the
lealers say that the three senators
named may be staged during the pres
ent week and made the center of at
traction of suffrage headquarters un
til the session ends unless they suc
coed. It is quite likely that something
aitdn to tactics enplooyed here two
weeks ago iwhen an attempt to 'burn
President Wilson in efilgy was made
inay be brought into play.
Although the South 'Carolina legis
lature has petitioned the members of
conigreiS3 from this State to do their
utmost to secure the passage of 'the
Byrnes bill appropriatin-g $100,000,000
to provide homes for returning sol
diers, there is but a scant chance that
favoraible action will be taken on the
measure, tle house commit tee on anp
rriailt ions haiving turned the inatter
own. Ilowever, Secretary Lane made
an earnest request of the house today
to bring a special rule for its consid
LIItIion in order that available lands
may be had at this t ime for the sol
iers. If a rule is brought in, it will
tIien he sqIuarely up )to the house to
take hold of the matter but with an
Infa voraIle Iep)rit from the appropria

be good for its passage.
It is Ino)t unllilely, however, that. Alr.

3r Borah, of Idaho, Republican mem
ber of the Foreign Relations Commit

ican people sh8uld be allowed to give

The Idaho senator, who recently dc
clined President Wilson's invitation to
a White lous conference next Wed
niesday to discuss the league constitu
Lion, insisted that the .United States
should steadfastly cling to the Amer
icanism as established -by the fathers
and as recently defined by former
President Roosevelt, and in the course
of his address he charged former
President Taft with making mislead
ig rtatemcnts about the effect of the
league's plan on American polices.
When Senator Borah concluded, af
ter speaking about an hour, an unusu
a demonstration occurred. While
the crowded gallerics applauded, sena
tors aid visiting representatives
crowded around the senator, seeking
,o (ongratulate him. Among the sen
ators wcre several diemocrats, includ
ilg Thomn of Colorada, Gort - 'kIa

- It is what Swift & Company
earned in 1918.
2 cents on each dollar of sales
-only a fraction of a cent per

any noticeable effect on prices.
11% on investment (capital
