Tn thU day and ago of tfroatur enli^litcnniont, woman's position in matters and office political is taken I'oi* granted; it was not always so. Women in public office today are liaskin^: in a sunlit-Ill won for tliem by a few of their yonder, who. through a,^- ^•ressive. ccnrag-eous and fore.siglited action overcame many handicaps and oppositions to briii!;' about conditions a* they exist. Their li-jlit was \\-im, and in iiwilliiT sense it only started, with the adoption in 1!>'JO, of the 10th Amendment, providing nationwide suffrage t'oi women. Mrs. Mary ( Kreeman) Caine was or.o of the few who helped bring about nn improved situation for the many. Her active participation in cummmfity find civic affairs pre-dates suffrage and since .l!)'Jl) her every effort was directed toward the goal of community and national improvement through the. process of supporting for public office the individual best qualitied for the responsibilities and duties involved. Locally and in the slate she contributed materially to the indoctrination in women the realisation of their rights itiicl responsibilities as participants in public affairs; rights and responsibilities that accompanied . the granting ol' full franchise. She also impressed upon men (lie fact that wonifii would use their rights to advantage. Aside from her active part in civic and political affairs, Mrs. Caine was a loving, devoted and capable mother and wife, a home-maker, whose first thought always was of home and family, l>(:oply religious, she fulfilled her Church obligations as only one of strong convictions could. Neighborly and kind of heart, she was ever ready to assist her many friends and associates in the many problems they brought to her for advice and counsel. Although associated throughout her life with the Democratic party, Mrs. Caine numbered amonfc 1 her closest friends people, who, like herself, disregarded political and other affiliations in the evcry-day effort toward gaining .for the community at large a bettor \v>.iy <>!' living. The death of Mrs, Caine takes from -Vangatuck a leader whose interest in and attention to matters of public importance won her a place of respect among other women and men of position throughout the slate. We extend our deepest, sympathies to the members of her family. Their loss is also ours, for the death of Mrs. Caine creates a void Ihat will be hard \<, fill. There was only one " Minnie'' ('nine.

Both sides new know that the days of government operation tr« limited.- Lewis probably will want to get a private contract, solidity- ing the gains he already has made, before the government steps out. The operators are expected to be equally anxious to reach an agreement with the United Mine Workers that will assure a period of Industrial peace in the coal field?. The mine owners have received their regular profits under federal operation, but the government soon 'will be unable to end strike* through seizure action. Labor observers believe that Lewis will take the initiative to re. quest a bargaining session with the operators. • NUMEROUS CRITICS SCOFFED at th« anti-Communist wo. lution adopted by the recent CIO convention as being meaningleu.

They were oV tained, however, by the American collector, Jerome Stonborough, and are now in possession of the library.

The result was that when the sow decided to lie down, the pigs usually were out of harm's way. Other farmers began to slant tnc floors of their farrowing houses deliberately.
