the McCormick women's workday
bill come up in the house for a vote,
women representing various organ
izations flocked to the downstate city
today. Their numbers may run into
thousands before the day is over.
The women, who expect to throw
the influence of their organizations
into the? ifight to push the laws
through, are not sure of the success.
'Both bills are being bitterly fought
by strong commercial associations.
The McCdrmick women's-bill start

before it was dragged through sub
committees it had changed to a bill
allowing nine hours' work in twenty
four. The Shurtleff child labor bill
was intended to put child labor out of
existence. It, loo, has suffered many
changes., but is still strong enough to
cause bitter opposition.
