Mrs MacFadden, who is the author of a book upon the subject of taxation exemption, entitled The Next Question, has had little time so far in an unusually busy life for taking an active part in politics, although she has for many years been an ardent worker for the cause of equal suffrage and was one of the earliest women voters here, when women showed slight Interest in the few questions on which they were then allowed to vote. Finds Views Heartily Indorsed The widow of a Congregational minister, Rev Robert A. MacFadden, who died in 1909, she has lived in Massachusetts 32 years and during her husbands pastorates in Andover, Chelsea and Danvers, she identified herself particularly with the civic, welfare and social activities of these places, and later those of Cambridge, where she has made her home since 1912. I happen to know the State of Mas-sachusetts unusually well, said Mrs McFadden last evening, when seen in her home at 18 Francis av, Cambridge, "and I have Just returned from a trip across the State, during which I was delighted, not only to find my position on the taxation question so heartily indorsed, but surprised as well to find no opposition to a woman aspiring to the executive position of Governor. There have been women Governors of Western States, of course, remarked Mrs McFadden, although I cannot say that I think Ma Ferguson, as Governor of Texas, was any special credit to our sex In such an offlea. The fact that I have not entered politics before has been due to the peculiarly difficult circumstances of my life. Put Children Through College Mrs MacFadden, a slender, dignified woman, with white hair, went on to explain that she was left a widow In 1909, with a house in Danvers and an annual income of $900 a year on which to support herself and four children, the two youngest mere babies. She succeeded in doing it and in put- college. One child was killed by an automobile In Cambridge some years ago. , . - , : t ? ' k $ t' 4 4 ' ? ,& MRS EDITH H. MacFADDEN Cambridge Woman Who May Seek Republican Nomination It was a difficult task, Mrs MacFadden admitted last night, but one of which she is Infinitely proud. Hefl eldest son, Hamilton MacFadden, was graduated from Harvard in 1921; beg second son, Robert P. MacFadden. from the same college in 1920. and her daughter. Miss Caroline MacFadden. ai muslo teacher, who is now in Europe was graduated from Radcilffe in 1920. Once my children became self-sup porting, explained Mrs MacFadden "I was able to devote most of my ener gies to study and to the things which most concerned me, chief of them this taxation exemption question, or which. I must say Massachusetts is most particularly heedless. When real estate valued at 360,000. 000 is every year taken from the taxable list and put into the tax-exempt class, she declared, and 70 percent of the taxes are assessed on the remaining real estate, a very serious process Is unquestionably going on. Homes are In danger end the women of this country need to rise up and let their voices be heard la no uncertain tones. The Republican Party has always stood for protection of the industries and business interests of our country and I believe that this is ths psychological moment for the great body or American women to take their stand as the National Womens Party, working side by side with husbands, brothers and sons and taking over particularly as its chief business tho guarding and protect ftig of ths homss and children of the Nation. Massachusetts citizens are carrying the financial burden of enormous public educational and welfare Institutions. Should they be asked to pay the taxes on privately owned and privately controlled real estate? "I say no. That Is a rock we can wreck the State on. Lets steer away from it. When all the citizens authorize pub- 11c expenditure should a few citizens pay the hills? I say no.' Democracy cannot exist on that policy.'
