Constitution giving'women the-vote, the women of the United States are meeting a challenge which no other women in the' work! !*,ver faced. On Aug. 2G. 3P20, the 'women of America looked forward for the first time to voting for a President of the United States,. In that year the women's vote was a small percentage of the whole, and there were many who suspected that the wives of the Harding men' voted for President Harding, and the wives ol' the Cox men voted for James M. Cox.-Probably it was true that the vote of the .women of 1920 increased the total' nu'm-. bcr of ballots without in any appreciable way changing the results of the election. On Aug. 20, 19-f-l, twenty-fold' years later, the women of the United States arc -launching the biggest campaign in their history as voters to influence the election on every level of government from dog-catcher to President. Not only will women cast about GO per cent of the vote this year, but they will be a potent force in telling the men how to vote, Men Will A>,k 'Women In over 500 towns and cities in this country the League of Women Voters will publish "Voters' Information." To the women their menfolk will turn for the qualifications of candidates, Tor the voting records of Congressmen and members of state legislatures. And in the newspapers, in handbooks, and on fliers will bo printed, on public platL'orms will he given, the replies of- candidates to the searching questions League members ask. For many years the interest of women in the issues 'Of government ha.^ been increasing. The war has given tremendous impetus to this trend, for women are the home-makers. When food is rationed and clothes are hard to buy, when prices rise and stores are short-handed, when their men go to war and casualty telegrams invade their homes, women kno* r that what government does affects every one of them in a very ; real and personal way. This year women are-, interested in the peace to come. They want no quibbling to li'eep the United States from joining a union, of nations to prevent wars. They want the nati'ons .of the world to settle by conferences their economic difficulties — their aviation' and shipping and trade problems, their food, oil, tin and rubber sli'ortages, their debts, monetary and boundary disputes. War does not settle those problems. Capital • punishment has been abolished by Uruguay. • -, Hose • Cp;-^Challenges , 'U. S/Rubber Co; F.

Northwest have discovered all work and no play is no good even for a farmer. 'Harold Lathrop, director of state parks, credits patronage of rural families wkh being largely responsible for the 30 per cent increase in attendance noted at Minnesota stale parks recently. "Many rural people who have long lived in the vicinity of state parks are just beginning to become familiar with the numerous re creational facilities close at hand," said Lathrop. Pressed by the demand for more and more food for the war effort and! less available help, farmer.! and their families have turned i gratefully 'to the parks for relaxa- ' tion. .Farmers and other visitors have spent freely, too, Lathrop reported) Receipts arc GO per cent higher than last year, and at the one state-operated resort, D o u g 1 a s Lodge in Itasca, business was TC per cent better than last July an',' 22 per cent higher than the record year of 19-11.
