Vadae G. Meekison Collection - MS 211
Warren, Ohio, Apr. 10, 1914.
It affords me the greatest satisfaction to be able to inform you authoritatively on two points which will simplify the work of circulating our Initiative Petition.
First, the courts having held that indelible pencil is dry ink, signature in indeible pencil will be valid.
Second, in the cities where ward and precinct are required as part of the signature, if the signer does not know his ward and precinct, this information may be filled in by the canvasser or at local suffrage headquarters.
These two decisions should give great impetus to our petition work and make it possible to complete it in a much shorter time than we had anticipated.

OHIO-CENTENNTIAL WOMAN SUFFRAGE PARADE
TUESDAY, AUGUST 27TH, 10 A.M.
ORGANIZED BY THE
Centennial Suffrage Parade Committee
August 27th is Equal Suffrage Day in Columbus. The day is to be made a great rally beginning with a parade at 10 o'clock. Will you march or ride?
Politicians will yield to public opinion. It is of paramount importance that voters be taught that woman desires to assume the duties and privileges of citizenship.
Those coming in automobiles are asked to decorate them in different tones of one color, also using Suffrage banners, or decorations and banners may be purchased from local dealers. However do not allow lack of decorations to prevent your joining the parade. We desire to demonstrate by numbers the strength of our cause in the state.
Parade assembles at Memorial Hall, Broad and Sixth Streets at 9 A.M.
Consult Centennial information bureau concerning board and lodging - 1st floor Hartman Building, State and Third Streets.
If you accept the Committee's invitation, please sign and return at once the enclosed slip, stating also your county.
President Ohio State University
