Preparations for making the 47th an
nual convention the most successful in
the history of the National American
Woman Suffrage Association are already
in full swing at Washington, D. C. The
convention will be held from December
14 to December 19, inclusive, with
headquarters at the Willard Hotel. .
The group of women who have in
charge the arrangements for the con
vention is representative of the typ
of women who "do things," representa
tives, the suffragists say. of the women
who are working for enfranchisement
the country over. Mrs. Winsto.j
Churchill is chairman -of the commit
tee. The committee boasts of two suc
cessful authors among its members.
Mrs. Helen H. Gardener and Mrs. Alice
Lee Moque. Mrs. Gardener's name has
been known to suffragists . throughout
the country for 20 years as an active
worker and a woman whose literarv
gifts were, used to spread their prop-
aganda. . With Elizabeth Cady Stanton,
she labored for the adoption of the
single standard of morals and the rais
ing of the age of protection for girle.
It may be said. In passing, that.
though known to her public and co
workers as Helen Gardener, in pri
vate and official life she is Mrs. Selden
A. Day, the wife of an Army officer.-
Mrs. Alice Lee Moque is a newspaper
writer, author, lecturer, student of law
and medicine and expert photographer;
in fact, almost everything, as she says
She can reel off society correspondence
with a minimum effort and at the same
time has been writing for a photo
graphic magazine for 15 years. For 25
years she has been a member of the
American Authors Guild of New York,
an honor that is given only for work
performed. She was one of the found
ers of the Mothers' Congress and an
authority on eugenics.
Other members of the committee are

Mrs. Sarah A. Evans, In her address
Tuesday before the State Federation
convention, made many suggestions
that will probably be taken up and
made a part of the club work of the
future. Mrs. Evans spoke from 10
years of experience as president of the
organization. She said, in part:
For our future work and guidance, I
would recommend :
1. That he p.ourd have prepared a plan
for Incorporation which shall be submitted j
for action at the annual convention In l<t.
2. That we enter a strong protest j
against children with contagious and In- I
fectious diseases being taken Into public
places and public conveyances, and the
public health committee be instructed to ;
confer with the State Board of Health with ,
a view to prohibiting this common prac- ;
S. That, inasmuch as we have been re- j
Ileved as an organization of the responsl- 1
bllity of raising funds for the anti-tuberculosis
work of the state, that the Board
be instructed to devise some means for
raising a fund for the care and treatment
of Indigent, crippled children, and that
we jileJge ourselves to the promotion of
this work until such time as the state will
assume the responsibility.
4. That we send a stronr resolution to
the Governor, deploring any attack upon
tno cnua laoor mw, ana soliciting nis am

5. That an Investigation be begun, at
once, through, the proper committee, re
garding the feeble-minded who are not
properly restrained, with a view to legisla
tion which will rtduce the appalling birth
rate among this class.
. That we indorse the movement -inaugurated
by the Council of Jewish Women
to Incorporate kindergartens in our public
7. That th plan of the General Fed
eration be adopted in forming our stand -in?
committees for the state; namely, that
the r.h airman only be appointed, and that
the club chairmen of the several commit
tees in the individual clubs be ex-officio
mem Vers of the committee.
8. That all club elections be held In the
Spring, and that the outgoing president be
considered the legal representative of the
club at the state convention next follow
ing. . That some definite recommendation
be made to the Board from this meeting
for a better and more expeditious method
of receiving the. club reports.
In the report of your president at Eu
gene, mention was made of the necessity
for preserving: the integrity of our child
labor law. We bad no warning at that
time of the attack that threatened the ad
ministration of the law which came in two
different forms In the Legislature. Again,
later in the year we heard of foes in the
field whose rr actlonary sent t mem as to
