when the women voted it would be
easier to defeat the Nonpartisan
league. Just why we have never
discovered. Probably the politicians

that women are of a lower order of
intellect than men, and can be more

their own best interests.
In three states in-which common
voted primaries have recently been

of one office.

stead of being more easily tooled
than the men, are more difficult to
fool. Certainly with Montana, Wis
