The proponent of suffrage, those
who went into the front line trenches
and fought for it. are in short, won
dering just where they got off. They
left the train somewhere, that i cer
tain, a a reading of Senator Hitch
cock's letter of invitation will div
cloe. It follow:
."Nfv Dear Congressman: .
vMrs. C. G. Ryan, president of the
N'ebraska League of Women Voters,
has advised me that the Nebraska
delegation to the national convention
of that organization in Baltimore will
arrive in Washington on tne morn
ing of Friday, April 28. and requests
an opportunity to meet the senators
from Nebraska and the N'ebraska
delegation in the house of represen
tatives at II o'clock on that day.
"At Mrs. Ryan's suggestion I have
tendered the use of my office for
that purpose and trust you will be
able to be present at that hour. I
am told there will be about 20 ladies
nn th VhraL-9 ft1ffaftnn "
WiU All Attend.
It is very apparent that the suf
frage advocates in the delegation got
off, somewhere between the first and
second paragraphs, as the first dis
closes that the original request was
for a meeting in the chamber of the
house, which would be available at
that time, the house not meeting, un
til 12 o'clock.
It just so happens that all the
suffrage advocates in the delegation
in congress are republicans, but they
are taking the matter lightly and say
they- will be very much on hand to
welcome the women. Representa
tive Kinkaid and Crawford Kennedy,
Nebraska house attache, both of
whom cling to a state of bachelor
hood, have been appointed as a spe
cial reception committee.
