New York design.__ WAC And ATS Remind Public They Want Fighting Roles By RUTH MILLETT Members of the American WACS and the British ATS are burned up over a press agency report from the headquarters of Field Marshal Sir Bernard L. Montgom ery that women of the two ser vices would be sent into Ger many “mainly to prevent men of the two armies from fraternaliz ing with German women.” The majority of the American women in uni form went in be cause they had been sold on the idea that by tak ing over routine jobs they could Ruth Millctt relieve much-needed men for com bat. Many of them are girls and women with husbands, sons, broth ers. fiances in service. Some of them joined after a loved one had given his life. Most of them took their training period so seriously that they sur prised old-time army officers with their enthusiasm, their willing ness to work, and their capability. And once they were put in jobs they did those jobs well. PATRIOTISM WASTED No wonder they are insulted by a news story saying they are be ing sent into enemy country as women—rather than as members of the Army, needed to perform responsible jobs. If it is true, they have been gypped, misled, and their patriot ism has been wasted. If it is not true, they have still been insulted —as there are many people in the world ready to believe such a story—the people who from the beginning have been against wo men being taken into the services. Asked how she felt about the report one WAC officer said: “Strong. I’d like to meet the guy who wrote that story.’’ And that’s not a bad idea. May be a WAC could meet him—just as she went in to take over his desk job. Copyright, 1944. NEA Service, Inc. * • * Lt. James P. Harris To Spend Holidays Here Lieut. James P.
