KANSAS CITY, March 27. (Special.)
With Omaha, Des Moines, Sioux City,

Wichita and Joplin assured of fran
chises, the Western League will have
the best circuit of its history when
the season opens in May, according- to
K. W. Dickerson. president of the
Dickerson asserts that only a glance
at the list or cities will show Dase-
ball fans the cause of his optimism:
His optimism is partly based on the
fact that the eigrht cities are close to-
zrether, which will result in low trans
portation expenses.- But the real rea
son for the cheerful outlook, he says,
is the fact that . every town in the
leaeue will support its team.
Hutchinson, Kan., the smallest city
in the league, is the cause of his
greatest Joy, for the business men
backing the team there have guaran
teed 110.000 worth of tickets. This,
he says assures success for Jack Hol

transferred his franchise.

In developing its programme for 1918
the United States National Lawn Ten
nis Association is continuing the poli
cies which have already established
tennis as a war sport. At the first call
hundreds of players Joined the colors,
and now the records show that all the
first ten, excepting Kumagae. are in
military service. The association has
completed its effort to finance and man
two ambulance sections which are sta
tioned at Camp Crane. It has also
just arranged for the purchase of $2500
worth of tennis supplies to be shipped
to France to distribute to the soldiers
there through the T. M. C. A.
The annual meeting voted to restore
championships this season not merely
for the sake of tennis, but in the belief
that this action would stimulate more
general interest In outdoor sports. The
association has consistently fostered
competition on the ground that any
thing which promotes the physical well
being of the Nation is a patriotic serv
ice. This belief h.-ts been strengthened
by the approval of the War Depart
ment, expressed Inst season and again
voiced for 1918 by Raymond B. Fosdick,
chairman of the War Department'
commission on training camp activi
All the proceeds of tournaments will
be devoted to a fund which the com
mission will use to provide tennis fa
cilities for the men in camps, both here
and abroad. In addition to the money
thus secured, the association will col
Iect from its members such gifts
racquets, nets, balls, etc., as are avail
able. This paraphernalia will be turned
over to the commission and distributed
under its direction through the work
ers of the T. M. C. A., the Knights
Columbus, Y. W. C. A. and other or-
anizations co-operating for the wel
fare of the men in the service.

Electoral Reform Act Sweeping
Measure of Enfranchisement.
LONDON. March 10. (Correspond
ence of the Associated Press.) Eng
land's new electoral reform act not
only gives the ballot to women, but
also to a large number of additional
male voters. It is the most sweeping
measure of enfranchisement in British
history. The number of voters will
at least be doubled, increasing from
8.000.000 to 16.000,000, and the latter
figure la probably an underestimate.
The men voters will still be in a sub
stantial majority for several reasons.
The first Is that the qualifying age
for men Is 21, or. If serving in the
army or navy, 19, while no woman
under 80 is admitted on any ground.
In the second place, there will still
be plural voting, and although both
men and women are restricted to cot
more than two votes each, there will
be far more men than women to qual
ify as twice voters.
A woman may have two votes only
if she Is a university graduate, in ,
which case she has a vote in her home '.
district and also a vote for her uni- !
versity candidate. A man may have
two votes under the same conditions,
but he may also have two votes if he
is a business property owner in an
other district than his home.
As an illustration, take a family con
sisting of husband and wife and two
sons, one aged 19, in the army, the
other 23 and a university graduate.
The family lives in a London suburb
and the father is in business in Lon-
don. He has a vote in his home dis- f
trict and also one in the district where I
his business is located. The wire
being a university graduate, has
one vote. , J
The two sons will each have a vdinr
as residents, and the elder will have at.k
additional vote in the university con- 7
stituency. and one or Dotn may nava
a second or alternative vote on account
of the occupation of business premises
outside his residence district.
The wives of twice-voters will be po
tent factors of uncertainty on election
day, for they are permitted to select
which of their husbands' constituencies
they will vote in and they need not
announce this selection beforehand.
The old-fashioned British method of
electioneering are scarcely touched by
the new law, except that the Ameri
can system is adopted of having all
elections throughout the country on
the same day. Proxy voting is allowed
in the case of persons necessarily ab
sent from their constituency on elec
tion day. It is noticeable that while
a woman must be 30 to vote herself.
a girl 21 may be a proxy voter for an
absent male voter of 19.
As a check on bogus and IreaK can
didates, every candidate must deposit
J750, which is forfeited to the govern
ment if he does not receive an eighth
of the votes polled.
Town May Raise Kabbits.
OITILDFORD. England, March 10. In
order to increase the food supply, the
country food control committee has
asked the town council to finance a
scheme for starting a rabbit warren on
a site now used as a recreation ground.
It is estimated that at the end of a
year 4000 tame rabbits would be avail
able for foodstuff.
