Equal Rights Asso.: That there is a law in this State that has never been enforced, which we propose to test next October: -A widow who has children from the age of six to twenty can vote for School Trustee; or a widow without children having taxable property: and the writer added -“This will be good work to take up in you club, for we wish it discussed all over the State.[”]

It was then decided to adopt the Constitution of the Fayette Equal Rights Asso.as a basis on which to form our Constitution and By-Laws.

The Pres. proceeded to read the Constitution adopted by the F.E.R.A. that each article might be acted upon separately with deliberation, and by vote of this body: -as a result of which vote we have the following articles and by-laws. (See Pages 1-3-5).

The following motions were made and carried --

That there be a standing committee on Press.
That there be a standing com. on Literature.
That there be a standing com. on Hygiene and Dress.

MrsAvery was appointed chairman of com. on Literature: Mrs Bergmann chairman of com. on Hygiene and Dress; Miss [Margaret] Merker chairman of com. on Press.

That General Officers shall nominate the committees and officers not already elected.
