seems Only fair to our state at this time to name a few of so Many have expressed much fear that the experience of our first woman governor would be a great Block in the Way of political Progress of Texas Whilo the former a governor of the state has declared that the defeat of his wife for reelection would set the women of Tho state Back fifty in the very face of both ideas and at the same primary ejection East Texas goes straight Forward and elects a woman to the what can such action indicate 1 first fall it seems to indicate that the old fashioned prejudice against women presence or Power in a political Posi Tion has and the men of East Are too big and top Broad to allow the misfortunes or mistakes of woman to stand in the Way of service another woman might Render her another the ejection of Margie Neal to Senate proves is loyalty to a Home woman for duties Well per Margiee Neul of did not Bob up she did even come she was brought out by her Home she did not offer herself a living sacrifice for the vindication of anything or she was not elected because of any bitter feeling toward anybody she was not a victim of some selfish scheme on the part of she did not run purely she was a woman and just wanted to find out if a woman could run and How mar Gie Neal won the election for the state Senate purely on efficiency and fitness for the service it and this fitness for
