realize that a magnificent training

right in our midst, six weeks every
summer. This Institutioft is maintain-
ed in Austin College where every com-
fort and facility is supplied for the
benefit of tlie students. Young men
and women from every section of
Grayson county are there to have
their educational equipments enlarged

which is constantly growing greater,
for highly qualified teachers. Ap-

In her address to the board, Mrs.

IS FOR SUFFRAGE
Austin, Tex., June 11—Representa-
tive H. P. Davis of Van Zandf county
has reached Austin and will remuin
for the special session of the legisla-
ture. Mr. Davis conferred with Gov-
ernor Hobby but Ba id that he had
not asked tlie Governor to submit any
subjt*ct to the coming session.
Mr. Davis sayf he will vote for tho
ratification of the National Equal
Suffrage amendment as submitted hy
the F’ederai Congress this week. Ha
announces tliat lie will do this in
'spite of the majority against woman
suffrage in tlie election of May 24.
"1 think a majority of the Demo-
crats of this state favor woman suf-
frage," asserted Mr. Davis, “and I an*
going to ask tlie siiecial session to rat-
ify the national amendment. Then, to<v j
my home county returned a majority
in favor of the suffrage amendment,
and I am committed to its support."
It is tlie opinion of Mr. Davis that'
other members will take the position
assumed by him and. that the special
session is almost certain to Ratify the
national amendment. ,
