Puts "Women in the Position of a DIs-
- frahchlsed Laboring Popula"
tion No Part In the
. Before an audience in which women
predominated at convocation yester
day Miss Caroline Lexon of New York
pity, a prominent figure in the wo
men's suffragist movement, presented
Boveral arguments relative to the ques
tion, "Why women should bo granted
the franchise." As an introduction
MIbs Lexon briefly characterized the
two speakers for the evening meeting
'as women who could speak authorita-
.tlvely, for they came one from Aus
tralia where suffrage 1b completo, and
tho other forrii England where the
movement has achieved much more
than it has hero. In English colonies
and Scandinavia also the movement
ifas made great gains. As yet America
has only made a good beginning.
The significance of tho woman's suff
erage movement Is very great, and it
has yet many obstacles to overcome.
One of these is tho old common law.
In earlier days the common law made
tho woman surrender all she had to
the husband, so that sho had nothing
to say or do in her own behalf. How
over, this view has changed and mod
ified a.great deal, and especially has
this been true in the west: What is
needed is not so much legislative ac
tion as the amendment of tho com
mon law,, which would effect tho great
est results.
Our government Is a very contradic
tory institution. It clainiB to be of,
by and for the people, when rather it
is of, by and for tho men. All the
women are asking is a square deal,
yet this argument does not appeal as
strongly as it once did, because tho
interest In Individual rights is not us
dominant as it onco was. Another ar
gument which is.a better one, appears.
The sphere of government aild of wo
man has greatly changed and woman's
greatest benefit aB a voter "would be
similar to the use of water In tho
household ats Woman, as sho seeks
to effect clean, housekeeping, can 'do
tho same work politically. Woman
:has wondqrful success, in her rotation
to tho public schools whorover 4tho
opportunlty'lias come. States Miavo
ovem, elected them as state : super In
tendents. Wjoman need not ibe con
versant on the tariff dr on money ;to
make "hqr a good voter, but, as' a
cleanser -of politics and ari influence
for good, the results' will Justify her
Women all over America are in tho
position of a disfranchised laboring
population, And .while Jaws are being
passed by men that vitally affect -wp-;
man ,in all .her occupations, , yet In
these all-Important questions she can
have no say or take no part. This is
iio more .right than It would .bo for!
the right of franchise to be taken from
all laborers And put exclusively in ,the
'hands lot the omliiovefs, tarid permit
him to creato all laws affecting the
'laborer. The women of tho factories
Should, have something to say about
.rjlie laws affecting thdm.
This iquostlon is of peculiar interest
4tO' the college womon. The pioneer
suffragists were college womon. Again
to tholr follow-womcon, to rocognlzo
this great movemont. For this purpose
a great national organization has been
formed and here In Nebraska thero Is
a very active and aggressive chapter
of the natlonnl organization.
Upper Claeemen Will Dress, Play, and

Matching Programs In Advance Likely
to Cause Trouble.
Experienced dancers who have a
habit of exchanging dances in ndvanco
of tho distribution of programs for
university affairs uro cautioned to bo
careful how thoy proceed with tholr
engagements for the Junior prom this
evening. If the practice is indulged In
to n8 great an oxtont aB usual, a mer
ry mix-up may roBtilt.
Owing to tho large attondanco at
the prom it will bo necessary for a
part of the dancers to cross off dances
ns early as the fifth for lunch. The
ordinary at tho Lincoln will only ac
commodate about thirty couples and
this means that thero must be several
relays of dancers. Consequently uni
versity mon who match in advance
dunces Inter than the fifth do bo at
risk of finding themselves assigned to
lunch at that time.
Tho committee also urgp that all bo
present exactly at tho time scheduled
for opening tho dance. Programs will
bo distributed at 8:1G. Owing to a
acarclty In programs Jato arrivals may
havo difficulty In obtnlnfng the neces
sary books.

versity Appropriation.
Tho committee of the lower house
of the state legislature whjch has
charge of university financial meas
ures,, yesterday reported for passage
a bill providing for the appropriation
for university use of the proceeds of
the one-mill tax for the next two
years. This measure merely makes
available for tho university the funds
arising from tho ono mill assessment.
Tho mill lovy Is n permanont measure
and holds from year to year, but the
funds must'be specially appropriated
each session of the legislature. -
