Nashville, Tenn., Aug. 18.-Tennessee today became the thirty-sixth Btate to ratify the Susan B. Anthony Federal Suffrage Amendment.

The Suffragists, however, had the advantage of todays victory and expressed confidence that Speaker Walker's motion would be voted down tomorrow. i The next step, in ratification would �be the certifying of action of the 'Tennessee assembly to the secretary of state of the United States, who upon its receipt would issue a proi-lamation declaring the amendment ratified. * 7 i Suffrage leaders declare they will iot slacken their efforts as they de-Aire to have^ r.t least one other state ratify before the November elections, as thy expect a "fight to be made against Tennessee's action, because of the clause in the state constitution which prohibits any assembly from acting on an amendment, not sub mitted before the members were elected. Both United States Solicitor Gneral Prlerson and the Attorney General bf Tennessee have declared this olaus to be uncdnstituional in th* light of the recent decision of the supreme court in the Ohio referendum case.

Adjournment was taken until ten o'clock tomorrow. Nashville, Tenn., Aug. 18.-Ratification by the Tennessee Legislature was the culmination of an intensive drive made by suffrage pro-ponents to have the amendment made effective in 5tirae for the women of the country to vote in the presidential election in November. The drive was started when West Virginia became the thirty-fourth state to ratify early this year. Washington was the '� thirty-fifth state'to ratify and on the same flay it acted, March 22, Governor Town-send, of Delaware, called a special > session of fwbe legislature of that , state to act on the amendment. The Delaware assembly met early in May and the senate ratified, but. action by the house was delayed despite pressure brought to bear by the leaders of both great pollcltal parties and by President Wilson. Finally on June 2, the Legislature adjourned with the ' ratification resolution still in the home committee of the whole. Meantime the Louisiana legislture met and efforts were made to have it act favorably. President "Wilson appealed to Governor Parker to. recommend ratification, but the Governor declined to doso. The ratification resolution was taken up late in. May-and was debated at intervals through the month oLJune and into July. � Governor '.Cox, _ the Democratic presidential nominee, threw his influence on the side of'the amendment declaring that the Democrats of the legislature owed it to their party, to ratify, the amendment. Raleigh, N. C., Aug. 18.-Suffrage leaders predicted today that an attempt would be made,. probably before "evening, to have,the North Carolina senate reconsider the vote, by which is decided yesterday to postpone action on ratification, of the federal suffrage amendment until the next regular session of the legislature.. Opponents of'ratification, on the other hand, planned to ,cllurji their Mctory by bringing about the defeat f the ratification resolution in the ouse today. Representative Neal, .htl-ouffrage- floor leader, said be was confident a vote would .result in tictory for his faction. Nashville, Tenn., Aug.. IS.-The line up of the Democratic and Republicans on the vote for ratification follows: Democrats, aye, 35; no, 34; absent 1. Republicans, aye, 15"; no 12; absent 2. The Tennessee legislature met on August 9, and North Carolina; assembly convened on thV following day. The Tennessee senate ac<^' withlto'less than a week, or on 1' day after Governor Bickett submitted the amon dte, .4*8 tb*48. This would- have put over action until 1921. Some of those keeping tally of the votes rcorded: the vote on this motion as. 49 to 47 in favor, and first reports were that suffrage had lost. , - The official tally showed a tie vote, however, and to make assurance doubly sure, a second roll call was ordered. The vote again waa recorded ..at 48 to 48, and the motion, to table was declared lost. Columbus, Ov, Aug. 18..-Mrs. Abbey Scott Baker, political chairman of the. National Woman's Party, who has been working with Governor Cox and also at Marion with Senator Harding, the Republicaa presidential nominee, in behalf of ratification, made the following statement: 'fin-dividual men have helped.us splendidly and^ we thank them heartily, but American women can take to their hearts the happy assurance that women won the enfranchisement of American women. - 5000 Immigrants Arriving Daily in The United States (By Associated Press Leased Wire.)

Steubenville may be the next potential link in the virile chain of Kiwanis Club3 composing the Ohio Kl-f wanis district and have a fixed place ! on the International Kiwanis inap. I Hal P. Denton, of Cleveland, representing the board of trustees of I the Kiwanis Club International, is j in the city today, making the.requir-I ed survey and arranging for a conference of outstanding local business men to be held Friday evening at. 8 o'clock at the Chamber of Commerce rooms. In accordance with rules governing the parent body, the club nearest a city contemplated for organization must act as Bpousor. At the intercity meeting of Ohio Kiwanis Clubs in Cincinnati a few weeks ago, held in conjunction with,, the regular meeting of the board of trustees of the Ohio , Kiwanis district, the Wheeling Kiwanis Club made a formal request that an effort be made to interest Steubenville in this great movement for better business. Mr. Denton, who. came here from Alliance, where he aided a group of business men in introducing the Kiwanis movement, will return tonight to, that, city where on Thursday he is scheduled to make an address before the Alliance Kiwanis Club. 'Ed., F. Arras, governor of the Ohio Ki-l^ajtfsJDistrMj*nd,jm^ the in- ternational Kiwanis board of trustees, will be the guest of hqnor on. thiB occasion;' and Kiwahlans froth. Akron, Cleveland, - Warren,^ Youngs-town, Canton, Mansfield and other near-by Kiwanis cities, are to Join, in propagating the Kiwanis spirit in Alliance. ' Mr. Denton will' return to Steubenville Friday- morning and' at the conference here in the evening Willi outline in detail what- Kiwanis will mean to Steubenville as i community, and individually to those who may be en fortunate as to become affiliated with the movement. "The word Kiwanis," said Mr.' Denton today, "being interpreted, means 'honest trading.' It is an Indian contraction. , The organization's slogan is 'We Build.' It is an appellation inoBt fitting for a � body composed of buildera-^builders not especially, in the . sense of: mortar, bricks and wood, but in. character/ civic spirit and community usefulness. Parenthetically, I might say that in every community we are the strong right arm of the outstanding civic organization, more often termed the board of trade or , chamber of commerce, by reason of the fact that we have, a compact, cohesive force of red-blooded men with.a minimum of dead wood. "The builder spirit of Kiwanis extends also to the relations which exist between business men, their fellowship and friendship, their ideals and standards of practice. -Back.of the Kiwanis movement is the deep-rooted conviction that exploitation and-imposition, chicanery and downright dishonesty in commercial affairs will have short shrift in business circles where the closely observed rule of interchange'is 'Do' unto others as ye would that they should do unto you'. - "There are more than 300 Kiwanis clubs in the United States and Can ada," Mr. Dehtori continued, "with a gross membership greatly in excess of 30,000 outstanding manufacturers, wholesalers, jobbers, retailers and professional men, and not to exceed two in a given line of endeavor in each community. In Ohio there are Kiwanis Clubs in Akron, Alliance Canton, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Lancaster, Dayton, Delaware, Elyria, Flndlay, Lima, Lorain, Mansfield, Medina, Newark, Norwalk, Sandusky, Springfield, Martins Ferry, Toledo, Warren and Youngstown,-and the movement has never gone into any city without a formal request or sponsorship. , VWe of the Cleveland Kiwanis Club ,are particularly interested In the growth of Kiwanis in the Ohio District this year, as tho international convention of Kiwanis Clubs is to be held in our city, June 21-25 of next year, when it is expected that fully 7,0-00 Kiwanians will be in attendance. Gus J. Pfovo, treasurer of the Guardian Savings and Trust Co., and president of the Cleveland Club, is chairman of the general convention committee."
