Returns Show That Suffrage Ballot-
hig Follows Regular
Ratio of State
Chicago, Nov .9. - In the fickle
game of "how to handle the women,"
Illinois politicians today made two
rules as they watched the returns of
the first presidential woman's vote in
Illinois, which is larger than that of
all othier suffrage states combined.
First: As the men vote, so go the
Second: Few fail to vote.
Few state figures are complete yet,
but full Chicago re urns show that
in only four wards did the women's
plurality go different from the whole
choice, and in those by only small
margins. The same ratio holds for
down-state districts.
Although barred from voting on
the governorship and other import-
ant state offices, women polled 89 per
cent of their registered vote in Chi-
cago, only three per cent less than
the man with unlimited suffrage.
Minor parties have little to expect
from suffrage, figures indicate. ' Pro-

candidates together received only 5,-

women's vote of more than 750,000,

Several western states have suffrage
for the first time this year, but the
close presidential race had absorbed
attention and little has been gathered

As announced in The Michigan Daily,
the Cosmopolitan club has started
publishing a series of world articles
by foreign students about some phase
of their native lands. The first seven
of such articles were written by S.
Katsuizumi, '17, and M. Kiyohara, '17,
about Japan.
Tomorrow the first of the second
series, eight in number, will appear.
They will be contributed by students
of the British South African league.
Scenes, customs, resources, and nov-
elties for their country will be de-
picted. Dr. N. S. Hardikar, who has
charge of the articles, expects this to
be a very interesting series.
