Miss Jane Addams, head resident of Hull House, was talking suffrage at a tea in Chicago when an "anti" said:
"Look at the so-and-so elections. Only a third of the women voted. How, Miss Addams, do you account for that?"
"Well," said Miss Addams, with a smile, "after all the trouble these women had to get the vote, they are naturally in no hurry to give it to anybody."
