TENNESSEE 36TII STATE TO RATIFY 19TH AMENDMENT House Concurs hi Senate'* Ac tion of Last Fri day EFFORT TO DEFEAT STILL TO BE MADE Speaker Change. Vote From Na To Aye A ad Will Praeeat Motion Te Roeocwider—Farty-Niae For Aad Forty-Sir Again.t Swffrage Ataead roeat. Nashville, Tenn., Aug. 18.--Ten ntiM. today ratified the Federal »uf frage amendment, the lower houte. of the legislature by a vole of 6G U> 48 concurring in the action of the aenaU, which last Friday adopted the ratification resolution by a vote of 25 to 4. Although It was thirty-sixth slats to act favorably and the amendment should become affective as soon certified bv flainbridge Colby, Sec retary of State, whether 17,000,000 women of the country would vote ir the Presidential election in November remained to be determined. The house still has an opportunity to rve cind its action and preliminary slap* for tasting the legality of ratification by the legislature. If rsconalderatior. should fail to upsat it, alraady has bean taken by the Tennessee Conati tutional League on the ground Uiai the assembly had no authority to set Walker Cheap*. Hi. Vote After tho ballet today Beth Wal ker, speaker of the Hoa.r and leader of the opposition, changed his vote from "ao’* tn “aye” in order to avai' himself of tba prlvilsga of moving for reconsideration and announced that he would do so Under the rules only Mr. Walker can offer this motion and it may he dona St say time be so de sires. He must act, however, either tomorrow or Friday. AMMnu tor Ninety-six of the ninety-nine mem ber* of tho House were presort to day. and the alignment, until a vote on eonrurrenea was taken. wa* a tio. each faction polling 48 votes on a motion by Ur. Walker to tabic thr resolution. On the ballot for concur rence the lineup was 49 to 47 until the speaker changed hi* vote. This apparently would give the suffragists an advantage of only two votae, but their leader* declared tonight two member* in favor of suff.xge, who were absent today, would arrive prob ably tomorrow rooming. Tightaa Their Lias* The motion to reconsider may be carried by a majority rote of thr member; present and since Mr. Walk er can act without a moment's notice, the suffragists expected to lie on hand in full force during the next two dsva It wa* evident the only hope the speaker had of overturning to day’» action w»« through dcsertioni from the suffrage ranks or failure of tho auffnagist* to have virtually every member present until the House ad jnurns Friday. The suffrage leader declared they expected no defections among their forces, but a» a precau tion they were tightening their linen. • The opposition leaders tonight were waging an active campaign in an ef fort to incrcaae their strength at the expense of their antagonists. Dramatic Conclusion The end came with dramatic sod dannos*. Debate on thr motion to con cur had been in progress little mo.** than an hour ana there was no ind ration a vote was Imminent when Speaker Wslkvr called Representa tive Overton to the chair and tool: the floor to reply to a suffragist. who had charged that special- inter-Me were at work to defeat ratification.
