Just why we have never discovered. Probably the politicians haven't yet got rid of their belief that women are of a lower order of intellect than men, and can be more easily fooled into voting against their own best interests. In three states in-which common voted primaries have recently been held. In Montana the League won every nomination in Wisconsin, in their first effort, League candidates won a majority ot the places in Colorado, again, there was a clean sweep, with the possible exception of one office. It almost looks as if the politici ans had figured wrong on the worn: an vote. Perhaps the'women, in stead of being more easily tooled than the men, are more difficult to fool. Certainly with Montana, Wis consin and Colorado as recent ex amples it begins to look that wsy.
