t Teas Don't Get Votes.
Teas don't get votes, Mrs. Ed
ward ' Franklin White of Indianap

tee of the general federation of
women's clubs, said today at the
biennial convention., 'She advised
the women to "cut out -the teas"
if they expect to enter and continue
in politics successfully.
"The teas at Chicago were one
reason, I believe, why the men did
not rate us women higher political
ly. All you heard among the wom
en was 'teas," Mrs.'White said.
"What does it mean to be a good
politician? to be ablei to deliver the
.vote? How many women tan de
liver the votes in their pjecincfff?
Untifyou can, you are not ready
for the rank and hie of the political
organization." "Mrs. White added
she would rather be chairman of a
precinct in preference to any other
office in a party and after she had
made good irt that place she would
ask for something higher.
