The Continental and Commercial
Bank, one of the largest financial
institutions in Chicago, has passed a
rule regarding the resignation of all
women employes when they marry.
According to Vice-President W. G.
Schroeder, the bank, which employs
100 women clerks, bars married wo
men for these reasons:
Business and matrimon. do not go
a bank is a business institution,
not a school for matrimony.
Love affairs in banks should be
thoroughly and timely discouraged
Married women should be at home
not at a typewriter or adding ma
chine, and should not arrogate the
rights of single women who have to
earn their own living.
