ployment, the bureau reported. It*
added that history had shown that
these laws, based at first on “altruis
tic principles,” had come to be re
spected for practical and economic
considerations.
“Studied and experiments carried
on for the most part during and since
the first World War,” the report said,
“have demonstrated that a reason
able hour schedule and desirable
working conditions are sound from a
business or financial point of view,
i. e., they are ‘a good business propo
sition’.”
Significant gaps still exist in ma
jor types of legislation in nearly all
states and some of the laws now in
effect fall short ’of providing ade
quate working-conditions standards,
the bureau said its study revealed.
For example, the report recom
mended “Establishment of legal hour
standards which would allow time not
merely for recovery from fatigue but
for mental and spiritual growth would
be highly beneficial to workers them
selves and to society as a whole.”
State Laws Inadequate
As the report stated, only about a
third of the state hour laws limit
hours of women in some occupations
to 8 a day. No state law sets a maxi
mum work day shorter than 8 hours
and only 3 states have a legal maxi
mum hour workweek of less than 48
hours for manufacturing plants in
peacetime. Moreover, in some states,
the hour laws have very limited in
dustry coverage so that considerable
numbers of women workers are still
outside their protection.
The Women’s Bureau recommends
for .all women workers a basic 40
hour week with overtime beyond 40
hours up to a maximum of 48-hour
week, a maximum 8-hour day, one
day of rest in every 7 consecutive
days, a minimum 30-minute lunch
period where food is available on the
premises and a longer period else
where, and a rest period of at least
10 minutes in each 4-hour or half-day
work period without extension of
daily work hours.

Better State Legislation Is
Needed To Protect Women
Wage Earners/ Bureau Says
Washington, D. C. (ILNS).—Though state labor legislation
for women has many shortcomings, continuous progress has been
made both in the number of state labor laws and in standards they
set for regulating women’s hours and working conditions, the
Women’s Bureau, U. S. Department of Labor, said in a bulletin.
“The period of reconversion from a wartime to a peacetime
economy offers a real opportunity and challenge to all states to re
view the content of existing legislation with a view toward early
initiation of an active program of improvement,” the bureau said.
J, No state is now without some law regulating women’s em-

It all started when the
Newspaper Guild started
someone with authority to
and sign an agreement for
paper chain. After preliminary spar
ring with a committee that said it
had no authority to reach binding
agreements, the guild discovered it
could find nobody who would admit
he owned the chain or had power to
sign on the dotted line.
The man who signs the chain’s
chicks and buys the newsprint is
Sherman Hoar Bowles, who blandly
told an NLRB hearing investigating
unfair labor practices and refusal to
bargain that he neither owned nor
managed the papers. He said he re
ceives no pay and has only the most
casual interest in the papers which
have been under his exclusive direc
tion for years.
Questioned as Co his role in such
matters as setting of the NLRB elec
tion, the demotion and transfer of a
city editor and earlier efforts to ob
tain WLB approval for wage in
creases, Bowles calmly stated at the
NLRB hearing that he just “hap
pened” to be on the scene.
Bowles insisted ownership of the
papers “is one of the mysteries of my
life.” He revealed no income tax re
turns were filed, that he signed
checks “usually for $5,000 or $10,000”
when somebody in the internal rev
enue office decided on how much was
due the government.
Guild members believe their efforts
to smoke out the responsible man
agement will raise a similar cry by
stockholders in the company and lead
to the solving of a puzzle that has
even confounded the U. S. Treasury
Department.
California Set To Pack
Record Crop Of Fruits
San Francisco.—California will fur
nish the nation with its all-time-high
crop of canned fruit this summer.
The demand for these goods is heavy
and the bountiful harvest and ade
quate labor, together with ample
equipment and materials, will be in
strumental in making a plentiful sup
ply for consumers all over, the
country.
The peach pack is expected to reach
14,000,000 million cases, more than 90
per cent of the U. S. total. The apri
cot canners’ production will probably
equal or better the high of 8,CC0,0C0
cases packed in 1944. On the West
Coast there will be a probable pack
of 2,000,000 cases of pears. Alto
gether, California anticipates packing
some
year,
38.000,000 cases of fruit this
a third of the nation’s total.
Legislation To Ban
Lynching Promised
Washington, D. C. (ILNS).—Sena
tors James M. Mead and Robert F.
Wagner of New York have an
nounced they will seek passage of
federal anti-lynching legislation early
in the next Congress. The American
Federation of Labor is on record as
favoring such legislation.
“Recent lynchings have added em
phasis to the urgent necessity for en
actment of a Federal anti-lynching
bill,” Mead said in a statement claim
ing support of 11 other Senators.
“Federal legislation is vital if the
authority and influence of the federal
government is to be utilized in wiping
out crimes of this heinous character.”
Besides Wagner, who co-sponsored
a proposed anti-lynching law which
died in committee in the last Con
gress, Mead said he had the support
of Senators Knowland, California
Langer, North Dakota Magnuson,
Washington Tunnell, Delaware
Mitchell, Washington Taylor, Idaho
Huffman, Ohio Guffey, Pennsylvania
Thomas, Utah Walsh, Massachusetts
and Morse, Oregon.
Detroit Improves
Employee Benefits
Chicago (ILNS).—Detroit recently
put into effect a new benefit plan pro
viding municipal employees’ surgical,
hospitalization and death benefits at
half cost, according to the Interna
tional City Managers’ Association.
Payment "of premiums under the
new plan is split fifty-fifty between
the employee and the city. Each em
ployee pays $13 annually for the
death benefits—regardless of age—
and the city matches that contribu
tion to cover the $26 total cost. Hos
pital and surgical benefits costs are
split the same way.
Both the hospital'and death bene
fits are compulsory for Detroit em
ployees except those paid on a con
tractual or fee basis, certain part
time and school employees, and po
lice and firemen who will have their
own system. Employees who elect to
include their families in the plan pay
full amount for this service.
Many Department Stores
Accepting 40-Hour Week
Washington, D. C.—The Women’s
Bureau of the Labor Department an
nounced that certain department
stores in Chicago, Detroit, Milwau
kee, Columbus and six other cities
recently instituted a year-round, five
day, 40-hour week.
In none of these stores were week
ly salaries reduced because of the
shorter working schedules, which is
in line with the policy adopted by
leading New York department stores
in 1941.

By MARY MOORE
WOMEN
Mis. Phoebe Omlie, one of the lead
ing women fliers who has made her
living in aviation for 25 years be
lieves firmly that there will be jobs
for women pilots in the future, al
though at the present time a woman’s
chances as pilot on commercial planes
are pretty slim in competition with
more than 200,000 former army,
navy and marine pilots. Mrs. Omlie
foresees positions for women as in
'structors with private flying schools,
since teaching is fundamentally a
woman’s job—women having more
patience than men with beginners.
It has been suggested that girls
interested in aviation as a career can,
after they have emerged with a li
cense and with instrument and in
structor’s rating, qualify as sales
women of small airplanes. A girl so
trained, could then slip into a plane
and demonstrate the ease of opera
tion as easily as a salesman demon
serates an automobile. After the
plane is sold, flying lessons would
follow. In 1946, over four thousand
women held private licenses and 969
held commercial licenses.
The airlines hired women during
the war for many jobs customarily
held by men but many of them have
been bumped in favor of men, be
cause the prevailing attitude in the
industry is that such jobs rightfully
belong to the air corps veterans.
In spite af this fact, girls who
want an aviation career still have a
wide variety of jobs open to them
such as stewardess, or hostess, sten
ographer or clerk, ticket office agent
or reservation clerk, and many spe
cialized positions such as dietitian, or
home economist for airline food
service personnel director, public re
lations representative, staff photo
grapher, designer, librarian or air
line executive.
The most widely publicized posi
tion, of course, is that of stewardess.
Requirements are strict as to char
acter, appearance, personality, edu
cation and physical condition. Vision
must be normal without glasses and
girls must have one or two years’
college and some business experience
or be registered nurses. Age limits
are between 21 and 28, height not
over 5 feet, seven inches or weight
over 135 pounds.
Training lasts approximately four
weeks and girls are paid during the
training period.
WHAT’S COOKIN’
More flowers may soon be brought
into the average American home and
mean an expanding flower industry if
the flower trade takes advantage of
pre-packaging and super-market self
service. Small bouquets of flowers
sealed in transparent wrappers for
their protection will also allow the
shopper to see them without damag
ing them. They could be kept fresh
in refrigerated cases and could have
the same advantage in self-service
selling as vegetables, fruits and other
goods which are sold this way.___

The houseydfe would soon form the
habit of adding a packaged bouquet
to her grocery basket. Marketed this
way flowers would be cheaper and not
cut into the present florist business
which is largely concerned with flow
ers of special types for formal oc
casions.
While canned vegetables are per
haps cheaper than frozen vegetables,
frozen ones are cheaper than fresh
ones if you consider there is no waste
and no preparation to the frozen ones.
Frozen vegetables to be cooked
should be defrosted by allowing them
to- stand in their closed containers
outside the freezing compartment of
the refrigerator for several hours, or
allowing them to stand at room tem
perature for an hour before cooking.
They should be-toooked immediately
upon thawing with as little water as
possible. Frozen vegetables may be
placed in either hot or cold water and
brought to a boil, but the disadvan
tage lies in the fact that this method
requires more water and the vege
tables at the surface of the frozen
block tend to become over-cooked be
fore those at the center are finished.
