t BAX FRANCISCO. June 29. The two

committee on endowment and Mrs.
Philip Carpenter, of New, York, former
president of Sorosis, before the con

to Introduce Mrs. Carpenter.
"It Is my great pleasure and honor,"
she began. The convention, quick to
seize the situation laughed and ap
plauded. "It Is my great pleasure and
honor." repeated Mrs. Pennybacker, "to
introduce to you my friend, and one to,
whom I pledge my allegiance should
she be elected."
Mrs. Carpenter, who had stood smil

Mrs. Sarah Piatt Decker, of Colo

"I'm going to run again for presi

of a plea for the proposed endowment

still believe, however, that the passing

to be that suggested by the Louisiana

WOMEN'S RIGHTS TO BE PRO

Treasury Department Official Rules
Against Discrimination In Tariff
In Favor of Men.
WASHINGTON. June 28. "The rights
of women are secure in the Treasury
Department." So said Assistant Secre
tary Curtis today in wiping out a big
discrimination against women's hats in
the interpretation of the tariff acts.
Hatters' plush, used exclusively for
the manufacture of men's silk hats,
has been admitted to the United States
at 10 per cent duty. Other such plush
has, paid 45 per cent. Of late hun
dreds of thousands of "women's hats,
by fashion's decree, have been made
out of hatters' plush. Because of the
peculiar wording of the tariff act, some
collectors of customs, in cases where
the plush was used for women's hats,
have assessed 45 per cent, while that
plush used for the dress hat of an
American gentleman paid only 10 per
"The cost of women's hats is high
enough." said Curtis, deciding that the
quality of the plush should be the basis
of assessment, whether it went to man
