Morgantown Suffragists Organize.

Ably assisted by Dr. Harriet B. Jones, of Wheeling, 20 of the more prominent women of Morgantown, W. Va., met and organized a political equality club, which will have for its purpose the placing of a law on the statute books giving the women of West Virginia the right of suffrage.

The ladies intend to inaugurate a state-wide campaign at once and will attempt to organize a club in every city. After this is accomplished the first state convention will be held the date and place to be decided later.

The officers elected were: President, Mrs. George C. Sturgiss; first vice president, Mrs. W. E. Price; second vice president, Mrs. Ella A. Yost; secretary, Miss Eleanor Moreland; treasurer, Mrs. Lynn W. Jaco.

Dr. Jones addressed the Mothers’ club, following the organization meeting.
