WValiiigtoni, N.Y.. W8.-31rs. W. 11.
'Felton, hPpointed senator front Geor
n, pending Clecti(oi of a successor
to tie late ?.oniiator 'Watson, arrived -
hlere today with the announced iliten
(fion of obtailing a seat in the senate if y
possible so as. to "blaze the road for i
the womanhood of America." She add- t
ed, however, .that she was too old to
miake an aggressive .ight for the p1laCe
to which Walter F. George, was elect
ed oil November 7. d
Mr. Georg iwas obtaining his cer
tiflcate of, eLction today at Atlanta 1
and exipected to arrive here Monday in a
thie for the convening of the senate.
lIe has- announced his willingness to
I)erniit L irs. Felton to ocCdpy the seat ti
for a single day, if that could be done s
legally. She (Ars. Felton be sworn, r
she would be the 'ilrst woman to sit 11
in the United States senate. a
The problem that would 'be present:- 1
ed should Mrs. Felton present a claim
to the seat was discussed today at a
conference between Vice 'President
Coolidge and Senator Curtis, of Kan
sas, chairman of the senate rules com
niittee. They hoped to reach a definite
declsion before night.
Before entering the conference,
Vice-4President C-oolidge, in reply to
a question as to what lie would o
should sirs. Fe'ton present a claim,
said lie ivould "greet her its an old
filend." Hie declined to amplify this
statement. %
Mrs. Felton, owho is 87 years old,
made the 780 mile trip to her home in
Catersville, Ga., unaccompanied. She
was fatigued after her Journey and
spc:nt the day quietly at her room in
a hotel here. She would not discuss
fin detail her plans other than to make
clear her intention to present a claim
for the place to which she' was ap
pointed byV Governor Hlardwick imme
diately after the close of the last ses
sion of the senate.
After the conference with the vice
President, senators said the seating of
Mrs. Felton would depend on whether
objection was offered 'by an individual
senator. Should objection be made,
Mr. Coolidge, it was explained, swould
be prepared to following the ruling of
former Vice-President Marshall in a
similar case. Mr. Marshall held that
former Senator Christie (Benet -of
South Carolina, appoint('d to succeed
the late Senator Tillman, ceased to be
a senator -with the election of his suc
IRtepublican senators said they
would not object to Mrs. Felton taking
her seat.
