(UP) — Speaking before the eighth annual convention of Arkansas Demccratic Wcmen's Clubs luncheon today. Miss Stella Aiken, assistant United States attorney general of Washington, said that "woman's place in democracy Is her activity in local government." "Precinct' work is the real field for American women, rather than extensive forays into slate or national politics," she asserted. Intelligent interest as a voter and labor in behalf of your local government qualify you as a leader. Referring to women's franchise which have been had for the past 18 years as a sacred privilege she said, "We should not try to form women's blocs or demand recognition just because we are women." General committee reports were made throughout the afternoon and were to be followed by a round table discussion and election of officers. Tnis will conclude the convention. Miss Peg Lighton, 1938 chairman of the federated clubs, said the women would take no action on the controversial sales lax and workmen's compensation until the issues were more crystallized.
