section 1 of article vll of the constitu

"males" shall he omitted. The qualifi

The Nebraska Jury law provide that
Jurors shall lie taken from a lift made

limitations as to' aire and occupation
Thus, persona over KO years of age an

voters, It is quite likely that we can ex

Without giving votes to women, laws
could be passed permitting or compelling
them to serve on Juries. If women sit

and women voters of the state of Wash

women to do so.
When the suffrage amendment carries

compelled to serve on juries or shall be
qualified to aerve if they see fit, or shall

Protection for Women
Those of us who are advocating pro-

our greatest enemies In educating public ;
opinion along this line are the suffra

ing absolute, equality before the law for j
men and women. I
At the last session of the Connecticut,
legislature when the fifty-four-hour law
for women rei-ommende hy the Industrial
commission was up for consideration the
only woman who spoke aralnst it was a
suffragist. She said women needed no
prlvlifges and protections not needed by
men. flhe asked for "absolute equality
ind Identity under the law, with the
words male and famale wiped off the
statute books." No woman who, like
he writer, has punched a time clock i

STEPHEN S. WISE
TALKS ON WOMEN
Rabbi Wise, who preaches in Carnegie
liall In New York every Punday. Is one of
the most ardent auffraglsts who lifts up
a telling voice for the cause of woman's
enfranchisement. The following are ex
.racts from recent sermons:
"I hold that the absence of women from
he councils of state is partially, if not
largely, responsible for the continuance of
the plague of war upon earth. Is It less
than incredible that six or seven nations
are engaged In the greatest war that the
world -has ever known and not a woman
In all those lands has been consulted as
to whether war or peace should be, though
tens of thousands of men of women born
have died and the last great terrible cost
of war In life-long sorrow and suffering
will be by women borne?"
"Cnrest there is In womanhood today,
but there is more than unrest, for the
unrest which obtains in the world of
womanhood is symbolic of the warring of
mighty forces. Cure for unrest there can
be none, for unrest is not a disease, but
the never-ceasing pains of growth. The
awakening is the token of the life which
grams are the following:
"The same course of reasoning which
leads a woman to become an ardent suf
fragist will lead her to become an ar

ever she has the courage to follow It
