Senator's Job No Different From Man's, Says Mrs. Caraway BY ROBERT TALLEY NEA Service Writer 'Copyright, 1932, NEA Service Inc ) WASHINGTON.-A woman's job in thc Senate isn't to represent the women and children of the United Stales or to attempt apy special missions, for there are hone nn a man canr.ot perform just as well. Her first few weeks as n senator from Arkansas has convinced Mrs Hattie Caraway, only active woman senator in the nation's history, of this. She has had only one p-'*<>- cessor, the aged Mrs. Rebecca Lattimer Felton, of Georgia, to whom a chivalrous southern governor gave a special one-day compllm;ntary appointment back In 1922 People often ask me," says Mrs Caraway, "if I'm not planning to b=- eome especially active for measures and appropriations in beialf ot women and children. Well, r m not- there's no need to. "The men in the Senate are just as much interested in such welfar^ matlerE as n woman would be. And why not?

Mrs. Caraway, seated at her desk in her private office under a hu;a framed picture of Woodrow Wilson, expounded scm? more ot her unusual philosophy: Q, Why is it you have never mace a Speech in thc Senate? A. Because there is a lot of talking don: there nov.-. ar.n ! -'l^n't think we need anv more . . - but I'm not saying I'll never make a speech. Q. Have you ever made a speech before women's club;, at political rallies or the like A. I never made a speech in my life ... but I've done an awful lot of listening. Q. What do you think Is the duly of s woman In the Senate? A. To do just as a man would do; to represent the vihole people of her state and not any pirtici.'hr group. Q. How dots It feel to b? a member of the Senate? A. Not very much dlftcront t^an I have felt for the past 20 years: you see, I was here with Mr. Caraway throughout hU 20 years In t'r.r Seriate «nd, the House. • Q. Do you plan to wjrk for any of your husband's pet measures- such as hUiantl-lobby bill, etc.? • A.
