reforms" coltinued Mrs Gardiner "For instance women worked for the plumage of the national anti-child la- bor law This act has been declared unconstitutional by the United States supreme court and the only way the women of the country can get this reform established is bY the women of free suffrage ataten going to the polls and electing candidates to congress who will vote for the submission Of the measure as a constitutional amendment After they have forced its submission the women can secure its adoption by first gaining the ballot In a sufficient number of states And the women of America serve notice on all and sundry powers that have opposed and nullified this act that they will never stop in their efforts to cave the children of this nation from wage slavery Mingle Moral Standard "One thing has occurred in this campaign in Texas that has never occurred before in any other campaign in thin state to my knowledge and that is that candidates have come out in the open and declared themselves for a single moral standard for men and women "It is significant that under the old political system when WOIllen were put In jail for alleged infractions of the moral law nothing whatever was done to the men who were equally as guilty This sort of injustice is going to be ended by public officials who will have to rely in the future upon the ballots of women to place and keep them in power" Mrs Gardiner gave a brief history of woman suffrage in America She said that the first convention on women's rights ever held in the world was held in the United States in 1848 Something Wrong
