Text: 

Anti-Suffrage Arguments
DANGER ! 
WOMAN's SUFFRAGE THE VANGUARD OF SOCIALISM

Proof. --See here-- 
1. What is Socialism? 
Socialism is against Christian marriage. 
Socialism is against the Christian family. 
Socialism is against the holding of private property. 
Socialism is against Christianity. 
Socialism is against the Bible. 

2. If you hold your marriage, your family life, your home, your religion, as sacred, dear and inviolate, to be preserved for yourself, and for your children, for all time, then work with all your might against Socialism's vanguard--Woman's Suffrage. 

3. In a parade in New York City last November they openly marched together. The Woman Suffragists as the vanguard, with their yellow flags. The Socialists behind with their red flags. 

4. The Socialist red flag had this inscription: "Every Socialist is a Woman Suffragist."
Does every Virginia WOman Suffragist intend to be a Socialist?

5. We hope not. But "There is a way which seemeth righ unto a man, but the end thereof is death."
Danger lies ahead of you. 

Do you recognize the kindship? 
Is not this Plain enough for you?
