M8PPERS MOPE
FOR MORE BEER
?????
Life Without "Suds" Is
Drear Indeed, Say New
\ork Scrub Women.
York. July 26.?Scrubwomen
,n tWo l*rse Manhattan sky
scropers threw down their mops
th'.a> week. They wanted more
mo*y and they wanted more beer.
Foi*= years New York has grlven a

night and bowl to work in express
?leepy-eyed and haggard.
?oiB then on until after dawn they
whiten tiled floors of ornate office
buildings.
Aad then, completely fatigued,
they ko bark to their beds. It is a
life, indeed. All of the scrub
women are more than 50 years old
and the large majority nearer 60.
Saloons in the downtown district
hav* so rapidly closed their doors
that the morning "growler" is an
nlmost impossibility. In one build
ing.the aged leader said it was nec

refr*fct?hing bucket of 2.75 per cent.
But the scrubwomen have at

since Ziejrfeld took a group of

them a feature around a beautiful
actress in a midnight show, peo
ple ^?&n to see the scrubwomen
undfcr the spotlight. They picked
up j^ieir Sunday papers and saw
theig. prototypes in the photogra
vure sections with all the beauties
of ?f?e town.
Serb sisters began interviewing
the ,wielders of the lowly mop.

If- you f??r one moment imagine
y? u^ scrubwoman is a dull, un
thinking automaton, consider for a
f*"W _ fleet ins? seconds this gem of
thought as quoted in two N'w York
newspapers. It is a 65-year-old

?-talking of he^ inability to cret a

work. It sounds more like an Eng
