Description

This issue contains the article: "Suffrage is in Danger / House in Tennessee postpones action/ North Carolina Senators Decide to Set the Matter Over Until 1921 / Supporters are Blaming the 'Weak-Kneed' Members for this Result."

The article refers to actions taken by the state legislatures on August 17, 1920.
