ARE MUCH MALIGNED
DECLARES MRS. H. L. QRENFELL
IN CONVOCATION SPEECH.
EQUAL SUE FERAGE FOR EIGHTEEN YEARS
Home Has Felt No Evil Effects, and
Conditions In 8tate Have
Memorial hall was well filled yes
terday morning when Mrs. Helen Lor
lng Grenfell spoke on conditions con
cerning woman's suffrage in Colorado.
Mrs. Raymond played a selection on
the pipe organ und was forced to re
spond to an encore. Mrs. Raymond's
music Is one of thef things that makes
such convocations' n success.
Mrs. Grehfell stated that the women
of Colorado -were much maligned.
They have been said to be muoh dif
ferent from other women, who were
not allowed to vote, and had been
looked upon as something to he ab.
horred. 'She said she could see no
difference between the women of Col
orado and the women of other states.
The conditions in Colorado have been
much misrepresented. So many peo
ple go .there to investigate 'conditions
-and staybut few-houra or n few-
days and then attempt to pass judg
ment. It was said that all the gov-,
erndrs who have" held office since wo
man suffrage began in the state, with
one exception have favored it, and
nearly all tho Judges and. other prom
inent people of the tate are for It.
Eighteen Years of Equal Suffrage.-
W.omen have voted in Colorado for
eighteen years. After a seven years'
trial it was made a part of tho state
constitution and now it Is hardly pos
sible that It could be withdrawn even
If tho men so desired. The men aB a
whole will average Just as good and
aB virtuous as the women. Mrs. Gren
fell thought that while conditions were
not heavenly In Colorado now, thoy
were better than when women first
began to vdte.
Tho speaker thought equal suffrage
had no bad effect on the home life of
tho women. The home Is held just ns
dear as ever. A number of bills which
woman influence has passed were
mentioned, a majority of them affect
ing women and children. She thought
the woman's way of lobbying, quietly
exerting her Influence for good bills,
was much hotter than the majority of
the pnld masculine lobbyists. Mrs.
Grenfell wanted to know If the women
were not Interested in the laws. There
are a largo class of women supporting
themselves and these surely had. ,n
right to voice their sentiments.
Tho objection thnt women have to
mix with n rough element at tho polls
was met' by saying, that tho women
vote In their own. Immediate neighbor
hood and only havo to mingle with
those who live around them. Mrs.
Grenfell said tho women were not
great office seekers. There havo been
fourteen female members of the legis
lature, four. at. tho present .time, since
equal suffrage began. There lias al
ways beon a woman in tho office of
state superintendent and many smaller
positions -are- held ' by them. They'
have always been' true to their trust.
The speaker closed by saying that
equal suffrage- was inevitable and only
a question of timo till It came in in
'After her talk' Mrs. Qrenfell an
swered questions for all those who de
JUNIORS LOSE (LOSE DEBATE
SENIORS VICTORIOUS AND WILL
MEET SOPHOMORE8 IN
The seniors won the Interclass de
bate from the Juniors yesterday after
noon by a two to one decision. One
of the judges said It was the closest of
debates he had ever had to decide
upon. The balance wavered back and
forth, but tho seniors came ..back
strong on rebuttal and won. Profes
sdr Maxey presided and C. L. Rein
acted as timekeeper.
The Bcnior team, composed of J. L.
Lawrence, A. M. Hare and W. T. Wol
vlnglon, had" the affirmative of the
equal suffrage question, while the neg
ative was upheld by D. M. Rogers, T.
J. ifargreavo and W. L. Bates for the
juniors. The negative tried to prove
that the women did not want to vote,
that It was not Intonded by nature
that they should vote and that equal
suffrage was a failure. The affirma
tive held that it was tho woman's
right to, vote, that where tried equal t
suffrage was. a BiicceRB, and that in
NebrasKa at thoprese.nt time the men
are falling In part to run a clean gov
ernment. The Individual debating of the
juniors was their strong point, and in
direct argument seemed bettor than
their opponents man for man,, Mr.
Ilargrave has not appeared -In debate
before this time and made a credible
The senior "tpani will debate the
sophomores on Phi Beta Kappa day.
