Suffragists to Present “How the Vote Was Won” Tonight.

A play staged under the direction of a professional dramatic coach at the Bungalow Theater, free of any charge or collection, and to which people are asked to come, such is the unusual feature of the entertainment provided for the public by the College Equal Suffrage League, which has arranged for the presentation of the suffrage play, “How the Vote Was Won,” commencing at 8 o’clock tonight. Other attractions, all of a humorous nature, with the exception of an address by Mrs. Sara Bard Field Ehrgott, will be given in addition.
The musical part of the programme is in charge of Mrs. Frederick Olsen, while readings will be given by Miss Charlotte Banfield,  Mrs. Helen Miller Senn and Walter Gillard.
The play itself, which is an English one, produced at one of the London theaters, and which has been given in all parts if the United States, is staged by Mrs. Emma Watson Gillespie, who has picked a company, all of whom have given the play in various suburbs.
The cast is composed of the following:
Horace Cole, a clerk, Blaine Peabody; Ethel his wife, Miss Maud Hollinger; Winfred her sister, Mrs. Lou Ellen Cornell; Agatha his sister, Mrs. Lillian Downing; Molly his niece, Miss Opal Hedrick; Mme. Christine his distant relative, Mrs. Pearl Lotspeick; Maudie Spark his first cousin, Miss Echo Zahl; Miss Lizzie Wilkins his aunt, Mrs. Maud Johnson; Lily his maid of all work, Miss Carol Mitchell; Gerald Williams his neighbor, Walter Gillard.
