Before the hearing begins I want to say that the committee has agreed that 4 hours and 20 minutes shall be accorded to the hearing to-day, 1 hour to be allotted to the Federal Woman's Equality Association, and 1 hour to the National Woman Suffrage Association, and then 2 hours to those opposed to the resolution.
