frocks of the kind recommended by the best fashion magazines and speaks in the tones of a perfect This is the opinion of the suffragist leaders Denver following the re cent return of State Senator Helen Ring Robinson from a lecture tour which took her through five states and during which she delivered more than sixty addresses If the antis of the east expected Senator Robinson to be any different from thousands of other cultured women of the country they were mistaken Mrs Robinson is enthusiastic over the growing suffrage sentiment ia the east and is convinced that the exam ple of Illinois in granting women the ballot will soon be followed by many otherstates She gave the United Press the following statement regard ing her trip By State Senator Helen Ring Robin son Only Woman Senator in the United One who has not been in the midst of it cannot realize the significance and zeal of the great womens move ment in the east I did not fully real ize it The fervidness of it the white flame that burned in its midst inspired me I heard woraem preach with the fervor of Peter the Hermit One of the things that impressed me was the wonderful feeling of sex loy alty and solidarity

ingrowing Myaim was to allay that haunting panicky fear among the men that when the women get the ballot they would take the American home out in the back yard and shoot it full holes I spoke not as a senator or politician but as a housewife I told what equal suffrage would mean to women as housewives and mothers what relation the garbage can bore to the ballot and I think I gave a side of the
