American Woman Only Still Denied

f j-\H1S is a story about women. It is
1 not the usual story about women.
It isn't the story we've been
hearing for the last quarter-century
?bout women. It has nothing so
stormy about it, nothing se> passionate
.3 the story of the light the women!.
have made to exercise their judgment ;
h government. But it is a tragic story ; ,
just the same, tragic because deep1,
down in it lie so many stupidities, so
many official hesitations, such thinness '
of imagination on the part of sonic of ?
?he men who arc making war for us.
It is a tragic story because it in?
volves such an enormous wastage of
devotion, of patriotism, of that strange ,
endurance that women have in o\cr
powering quantity. And it is even an
ironic story. For it is the story of
Washington's refusal by its silence to
;,ut the women of America enduringly
and powerfully into the job of keeping j
the nation on its feet. And it is a
refusal in tbo face of the most wearing,
nipping, crazing and brutalizing cx
pcriencc that the years have brought
to humankind.
Waiting always used to be a woman's
job in war time. It isn't any more. ?'
They know it now in France, in ling- i
land and in Germany. They know it <
in ail of the United States of America, '
but it hasn't been discovered yet in
t'se District of Columbia. Washington ?>
still believes faithfully that woman's <
,:ob in war time ends when she lias ?
pledged lier kitchen to the Food Com
mission and has done her stint of '
'rench knitting and Red Cross bandag
ing. It may look benevolently but''
scarcely seriously upon an adventuring
lady trolley conductor or here and
there a daring lady elevator woman.
it has still to learn, and even more to,
i nderstand, that in England the women !
are turning by the thousands under
intelligent government direction to run?
ning a country that is more and more
; tripped of its men.
Washington does not yet officially
know that while the men of England
?re at the guns, not only do the thou
sand factories shake and tremble at
their vast job under the hands of
women, but the thousand farms grow
green and yield their golden treasure
t.- the women as well; that. English?
women arc raising meat to feed English
people and drawing the milk for Eng?
lish babies.
The Belief That
Woman Should Wait
Meanwhile, in our own United States
American women sit twiddling their
thumbs, making sporadic attempts here
and there in a great country out of
a great unsatisfied yearning to be of
use in the great, war. Washington goes
:?n naively believing that waiting is the
?'Oman's job in war.
We are a conventional people. Even
,var this war is insufficient to jolt us
.?ut of our conventional attitude. One
.if these attitudes faces on women.
Women, we bold and at least this is
true of an important part of Wash?
ington are only women. As such, they
can do a valuable work for us. They
are excellent help when it comes to
saving foo'l. admirable in any kind e,f
social service. They have a coopera?
tive method, which we have never
rightly understood anel that, has always
seemed to us to be more a game than
anything else, that does manage to get
things done if they arc not too ini
? portant. ?So we'll give the women some
; of these things to do. Feed their pa
, triotism. liet them started on knit?
ting, though goodness knows we don't
j take their knitting very seriously. Uut
it's good psychology? anyway. We'll
' organize the homes. Keep the women
enthusiastic; that's what we want.
Tast spring several women (they
happened to be rather important wom?
en, educated by experience in a knowl?
edge of the capacities of American
I women) made a call on Howard Coffin,
in Washington. Mr. Coffin was a mein
! ber of the advisory commission to the
j Council of National Defence. He was
! told that the women were, waiting to
take their part in the war, and they
wanted to know if the Council of Na?
tional Defence had considered any
plans for them. The council had not.
The council hael some ideas on the
subject, Red Cross, food, knitting, ele.,
to which these deliberate women made
the objection that, as a war programme
it, was far and away too small and
1 insufficient.
What, then, would Hies?) several
women, themselves propose? They were
prepared for thai.
They proposed lirst that the women
have a part in the extended machinery
of the government, manufactured to'
facilitate getting the nation ready for
war. And then they proposed that a
definite programme he drawn up, a
programme that might well enough in?
clude knitting in its various branches,
but which would be devoted foremost
and significantly to the functioning of
i women in the actual production of food
and clothing and munitions of the
country. America, they said, vas a
great nation, but the war rdioweel si?_'ii5
? of becoming a great and prolonged
war; and if the signs were good signs
it would lie prolonged enough to
; gravely deplete the farms and the fac?
tories of their man power. When the

man power showed indications of run?
ning low, they wanted to see that wom?
an power was ready on every side to
step into the breach, just, as it had
stepped in to lili the gaps in France
and in Britain.
Mr. Coffin probably pondered this.
It is possil.de that several other mem?
bers of the advisory board to the Coun?
cil of National Defence pondered it.
?\t any rate, there followeel shortly the
appointment of ihe Women's Commit?
tee of th.- Council of National Defence.
The women's committee was intended
to coordinate the powers of women in
the United States, 'that far it was an
answer to the programme that had
been laid before Howard Coffin. Hut
the:?? it .-topped short. It resembled
all other advisory committees to the
advisory commission of the Council of
National Defence in that it lacked the
power to do anything but advise. On
(!:?? up road it advised an advisory
commission. It worked downward
through dozens and dozens of commit?
tees below it. through state councils
t'j state committees, to county commit?
tees, to community committees and sub?
Held to advice, what were the women
goiiie; to do?
This is the way their programme
reads :
I Registration for service,
Food production ?uid home CC0
iioni ics.
:: Food administration.
?! Women in induit ry.
:> i'hiId welfare.
('? Maintenance of existing social
service agencies.
7 Health anil recreation.

It gives but the vaguest bin) of tin
right-about-face foe women that, tin

Women 1'ailed

tectcd by local initiative and enthi
siasm there have been a dozen othei
sorely unprotected because there ws
little response in local action to tl
appeal of Washington, unenforccd t
power to bring action about.
To be fair to the women's commi
tec, however, it has done a good de
to interest the women. It has reach?
into corners that the several nation
organisations of women have nev
been abie to fill with any light. Th
is the work of education, of exhort
tion, of stimulation and encourag
ment and guidance. It is even t
work of organization and of th
blessed process called in the Was
ington temgue "coordination." But
has nothing to do with initiation

unless it is an education that w

angle of viewing.
A White Building
?And a Letter File
The office of the women's committ
has a letter tile that reaches to t
ceiling. It is filled with letters
women who want to take some r<
part in the war, but for whom the
is no place. It is an illuminating b
ter file. An examination of the wo
of the women's committee revel
nothing more than that the wli
building opposite the British Embassy
: on N Street is ? well conducted letter
? Writing bureau. All the admirable ac?
complishment? are things that arc
i going to be ?lone, although the com
i mitt ce has been living ten month?,
things that are on the horizon or in
I abeyance for the time because some
? department with actual power enjoins
secrecy. In the nature of the case it
1 would be impossible to have done more.
I It is true that in April the committee
] will begin a nation-wide educational
? campaign to reduce the infant mortal
1 ity one-third. But even the pros?
pectus confesses the weakness of the
j plan, and hintj at the drawback o?

The most significant section of tin

confess it has nothing to do with th
i actual transfer of women into industry

The final basis for criticism of tl
organization of women for women
tho United States is that nobody

! machines becomes more intense. Was

of what lias been happening in Ki

question as to why America does
move in the same direction that t
time isn't ripe yet. The laud army

Woman's Idea of
Her Province
The Women's Committee lias it

let, when the demand for men in

food essential to victory. Vol. tim
the pamphlet pledges this future

to manag?' horses, so they can ?

if they would actually contri

But action on this suggestion is
forthcoming. The women thems?
I lack the power to put it into effect
though they aro wide awake to its

I opinion that seems to be growin

I rotary Houston, is that industry n
