Resembled Prayer Meeting.
Except for the delectable and
well-served luncheon, the tables
gaily decorated with golden core
opsis the suffrage color- and the
absence of an occasional amen.
the gathering resembled an old-time
Methodist prayer meeting. There
were testimonials! admonitions, good
resolves and close communion of
spirit. Mrs. Guy Kiddoo toast
mistress, took as her text, "The Re
sponsibility of the Young Women of

who have worked unceasingly, and
with final success, for equal suf
frage hate given that heritage to

Mrs. Halleck Rose pictured Tid

struggle leading up to the insertion
of one three-lettered word, "sex,"
in tho 15th amendment to our fed

this district, said she was glad her
husband had been afforded the op
portunity to vote in favor of -this
epochal measure. Mrs. C. C. Bel
den emphasized the need for contin
ued activity, and Mrs. Philip Pot
ter paid tribute o the national and
state workers who have been inde
fatigable in their efforts to make
equal suffrage a realization.
Other speakers were Mr. and
Mrs. C. S. Stebbins. Mrs. Z. T.
Lindsay, Mrs. J. M. Metcalfe, Mrs.
E. G. McGilton, Mrs. E. H. Cole
and Mrs. Morrison, who read from
a "Declaration of Sentiment" drawn
up 71 years ago at the Seneca Fa'ls,

of equal suffrage the first such

Washington, June 18. (Special Tere
(rram.) The charter of the City National
bank of Lincoln, Neb., has been extended
to June 26, 1939.
A charter has been granted for the
American National bank of Cheyenne
Wyo., with a capital of 155(1,090.
As a result the new Super-Six starts
easier, rides easier . and runs more
smoothly. All the old qualities are re
tained many are enhanced.
Think of the value of such a test as
the double trans-continental run in
Which a sevenpassenger touring car
made the roUnd trip from San Francisco
to New York in 10 days, 21 hours. Or
the 24-hour run in which one man drove
1,819 miles. So also of the many speed
way contests. Records more minute
than the temperature charts of the most
careful physician were kept of every,
phase of Hudson tests. As a result.
Hudson engineers found ways of enlarge
ing Super-Six attributes, hot possible un
der other circumstances.
That is why each hew Hudson is su
perior to its predecessor. It is why the
new model is more desirable than any
that has preceded it
As Always in the Past,
