Senator Penrose Will Deter
mine What to Do
About Matter
It is possible that the women of
Pennsylvania will be given the right
to vote for candidates for President
in 1920. This would be done by the
enactment of a presidential suffrage
act at this session of the Legislature.
Whether or not this is to be done
will be determined largely by United
States Senator Boies Penrose, Re
publican National Committeeman for
Pennsylvania, % and Chairman Will
H. Hays of the Republican National
The Pennsylvania Legislature is
overwhelmingly Republican and on
the question of suffrage is disposed
to do the thing which will be most
advantageous to the Republican
party in the nation. Some inklings
have reached Harrisburg that tho
national directors of the party are
giving serious consideiation to the
question of what Pennsylvania
should do at this time in the matter
of giving votes to women.
Whatever decision is reached by
Senator Penrose anu Chairman Hay
will be carried out by the legislative
leaders, even if a number of them
are not personally disposed to give
the franchise to women. Governor
William C. Sproul is in favor of
woman suffrage and if all the. lead
ers unite it would be an easy matter
to put through whatever legislation
on the subject is decided upon.
The passage of a resolution sub
mitting an amendment to the State
constitution giving the women equal
suffrage and the enactment of a law
allowing female suffrage in presi
dential elections arc the two pro
positions under consideration. Either
or both can be passed or defeated.

an additional amount over the 1917
appropriation but whether it will
approach the $1,000,000 asked for
