Officers of the National Woman's Party who will direct the Woman's Liberty Drive which opens on Thanksgiving Day to raise funds to complete the ratification of the federal suffrage amendment. When the drive opens 20 states will have ratified, 19 have already taken favorable action, and a special session has been called in North Dakota for November 25. 16 states are still needed for the adoption of the amendment. These must be secured, according to suffrage leaders, by the first of March in order to enable women of the country to register in the primaries of all states. The Woman's Liberty Drive will be conducted in states which have already ratified the amendment and the funds will be used in campaigns to persuade reluctant governors to call special sessions of their state legislatures. "If special sessions were called a majority in enough of the legislatures is pledged to complete ratification tomorrow," Alice Paul, chairman of the National Woman's Party and Commander-in-Chief of the drive, stated today.

Senate battlers on Pure Politics Act. Washington, D.C., Mar 7. At odds on the Senate floor since the inception of The Hatch Act, but good personal friends are Senators Carol Hatch, D. of New Mexico, author of The Act to Purify Politics, and Senator Sherman Minton, Dem., of Indiana. Latest difference to develop was yesterday when Sen. Miller or Arkansas offered an amendment to draw the teeth from the act be allowing federal employes to 'voluntarily' take part in politics. The amendment was intended to be tacked on to a bill to extend the scope of the act to U.S. paid state and city employees. The Indiana senator, Democratic whip on the floor, acted as floor leader for The Miller Amendment, but the bill was defeated by three votes. Today, the two are as good friends as ever, 3-7-40
