SYMPATHIZES WITH GIRL STRIKERS
PHILADELPHIA, January 18. The
local wnistmakers' strike has taken
eocial honors, for Miss Helen Taft has
enlisted In the cause of the strikers
and has declared that she certainly
will speak to papa about tho conditions
under which these poor girls are com
pelled to live.
Miss Taft was at the homo ot Mrs.
Henry La Barre Jayne, at 1035 Spruso,
street, yesterday morning when fully
100 society women nnd n score of Bryn
Mawr College girls listened attentlyely
to Mrs. Raymond Robins rehearse the
ills and thrills attending the life of
a maker of shirtwaists.
Miss Taft did not arise in the meet
ing and ask questions. She just lis
tened to Mrs. Robblns and at once
fell deeply in sympathy with the 50U0
odd girls who nre now striving to Im
prove their condition. .
And that isn't all. Miss Taft Is a
suffragist. She is a charter member
ot the Bryn Mawr College Suffragist
Club, so rumor assorts. Miss Taft may
not be quite certain of her status on
matter of franchise, .for sho is loath
to talks thereon, but this much she
knows: "The striking shirtaist mak
ers are deserving of every bit of sym
pathy that can be gathered together."
She isn't very well versed in matters
economic. This phase of tho ractory
Workers' existence is quite new to
her has opened the doors of a world
that she knew only in theory. But
now Miss Taft is quite ready to take
the platform if necessary, and repeat
all the things , that she heard Mrs.
Miss Taft's appearance at the meet
ing was more or less in the nature Of
a surprise. She had been reading tho
Public Ledger, sho said, and she felt
"just too sorry .for the little Russian
girls who had to live or starve on 39
cents a day.' She took a seat way
back in the rear of the Jayne ball
room. Near her sat Miss Fannie Cocn
ran, who is quite well versed in shirt
waist conditions. As the lecture
lengthened, Miss Taft became more In
terested evidently, for she' made hur
ried whispered inquiries of Miss Cock
ran and alvays there was a horrified
shake of the head.
''Yes, I certainly sympathize wltn
these poor little girls," said Miss Taft

reward whatever is given thom for tho use of their names. Ask them
what thoy think of Lydia B. Piiikham's Vegetable Compound.
L "SPEAK TO
after tho meeting. "I never knew that
they were so downtrodden. Really, I'll
4iover put on a shirtwaist again with-"
out a shudder. I really know little
about women workors, although I havo
several friends who, trim their own
hats, and one of them makes her own
clothes. But to think that these poor
creatures have to work 10 and 12 hours
a day, suffer agonizing headaches bo
cause they have to watch a dozen
needles flash up and down a thousand
times a minute aud then get but $5 a
week is too awful."
Here Miss Taft took out a book in
which she had made notes.
"Yes," she nodded, "a thousand
times a minute and ?5 a week that's
what Mrs. Robblns said. I am going
to know more about this affaij. Lots
of the girls havo been coming in to
the city and listening to the speakers
tell of the lot of the girls, and ,1 am
coming too, hereafter.
"I read the story about tho girl who
was told by her employer, 'If you do
not work you do npt live.' Tho girl
told him, 'I live not much on 39 cents
a day anyhow.' That was one of the
little incidents that won me to the
cause. Besides, I was down at the
pickets' headquarters and heard all
about it front the gins tnemselves."
"Are your sympathies aroused to
an extent that will prompt you to do
picket duty?" she was asked as she
hurried down the street.
"Well, I don't know I'd like to. And
oh" and here she drew a big breath.
Her eyes opened widely and she laugh
,ed. "Oh, suppose I was to be arrested
like Miss Cochran was."
The thought was too much. Hiss
Taft laughed merrily. "Wouldn't it be
terrible?" Shudders ran through the
entire group of co.llege girls.
"Well," she concluded. "I certainly
shall speak to papa about the terrible
conditions under which these poor
girls work. I know that he will be
sorry for them. Why, it's just like
reading Nietsche, Isn't It?"
And then Miss Taft and her friends
boarded a Thirteenth street car and
went to tho opera.
