Suffragists, anti-suffragists and a
few "non-committants" thronged the
auditorium, and though It was a "suf

ment and who dared to face the "Votes
for Women" contingent, were permitted
to voice their reasons why women
should not be allowed the privilege of
the ballot. Among those who dared

Kentucky and pointed out particularly
the improvement In the school system
