one has been in Tennessee, which has granted presidential and municipal suffrage. Mississippi has school suffrage. Louisiana had a referendum campaign this fall in which the state gave a large favorable majority, only reversed by an unfavorable majority in New Orleans. Florida women have municipal suffrage in eleven cities. A municipal suffrage bill introduced into the North Carolina legislature passed the Senate and lost by only four votes in the House. The too firmly entrenched southern politicians who are opposing their good women are aided and abetted by a desperate northern opposition who scatter broadcast literature cleverly distorting facts in order to appeal to particular southern prejudices. It is well for us to realize that the reactionaries of north and south, republican and democratic, are thus joining hands against the inevitable sweep of justice. But camouflage can no longer blind southern womanhood to truth.
