Mrs. Doumaux outlined her aims for the work of the Council, and asked for the cooperation of the members. T. A. Crichton, Esq., Republican County Chair- man, made a few informal re- marks. He said the true aim of women in politics is not to wrest the balance of power for them- selves. Love of family, of life, of community, should sway women for the good of all, as it should sway men also. "We are Repub- licans said Mr. Crichton, and to be a good Republican, requires first of all to be" a good American, and to be a good American now, is to lay aside disappointments and support the President of the United States.
