Miss Ada James of Wisconsin is one of the prominent members of the Advisory Council of the Congressional Union for Woman Suffrage.

Her prominence in that State where her father has been a well known member of the State Legislature, has enabled her to contribute greatly to the strength of the Congressional Union in that section of the country.
