x '. I Sr-4fil AboMt That Job!. What It Is What ItTays What It Leads To Mm Elizabeth Arnold, of the State-City Free Employment Service, v-ieveland, O., writes these editorials from first-hand knowledge, gained By experience m employment work. During the war, when the Em ployment Service was taken over by the government and called the u. 5. Employment Service under the Department of Labor, she had cnarge of the factory placement work, women's division. Her research into working contfitiona for women has made it her duty to keep in touch with opportunities, wages, conditions of work, training and qual itications demanded, slack and busy seasons, crowded and uncrowded vocat.ons and the future offered in new fields for women. TELEPHONE OPERATING BY ELIZABETH ARNOLD Of State-City Free Employment Service, Cleveland, O. If you are a. school girl, a college girl, a teacher, or if you are employed u an industry which has a slack season, you may wish that you were trained tor some special work so that you could depend on employment each summer, or part time during the school year so that you could increase your wages or earn enough to pay your expenses. Yet you may not care to spend a great deal of time or money on your training. A number of college girls have acted as telephone operators in their spare time during their college course. The Field Lots of girls make up their mind that they don't want to be telephone operators without knowing anything about the work. There are many advan tages to telephone operating that you may not realize. In the first place you are paid while you train. The training is not long, and you are assured a definite rate of increase at the end of two months and further increase at regular intervals. When experienced, you axe frequently able to get part-time work that pays very well, or you may take private witchboard work in office buildings, industrial plants or public institutions. The work is-"seated," which is a big advantage if you find it hard to be on your feet or if you are tired of work that has kept you standing and want a change. In case you stick to the work the supervisors' positions offer good op portunity for advancement and good pay. The telephone operator also works in a more protected atmosphere than most women who are employed. Every effort possible is usually made to pro Vide good working conditions, adequate rest and lunch rooms, rest periods, and sanitary accommodations. Probably the greatest objection to the work is that the telephone company has to serve the public all night. . Qualifications If you have a sensitive, throat, or are subject to coughs, if you have ear trouble, or if you have a nervous, irritable temperament you would probably find telephone operating very hard on you and should avoid it. It is semi clerical work, rather confining, and requires good health and steady nerves. If you are the right type the work will not wear on. Girls between IS and 18 years of age average from $60 to $70 per month the first two months, and girls over 18 years of age average from $75 to $85 per month the first two months with Increases at regular intervals.

' t j ... j ii m .ti, THE BOOK OF DEBORAH Ann's Pet Raccoon Digs Up a Surprise from Bob's Clothes Ann's pet raccoon had proved himself a persistent mischief maker. Ginger was as tame as a kitten and as bother some as a puppy. Ann carried him wherver she went. When she became interested in the event of the hour, she set down her pet and promptly for got him, and presently the party was obliged to scatter to find the precious thing. Jim never spoke of him except as "that darn coon." Jim's voice then expressed much more than his words. It takes only a trifle, sometimes, to destroy masculine patience. Jim could be a hero when the engine of his plane stopped hitting 5000 feet in the air, but "that darn coon' seemed as inevi tably destined to destroy his happi ness as the serpent did Adam's. Little did I guess it could ever dis turb my life when Ann held it out to Deb on my veranda. There is always a look of 'wonder In Deb's eyes when she considers Jim's wife. It is as if she were asking her self, "Would Jim have loved me had I been like THAT?" Deb was politely unastonished to find Ann petting a coon, and genuinely interested in its cuteness. When our talk finally turned from Ginger's diet, Ann put the raccoon down, and as usual, promptly forgot him. Two hours later, after we had made an exhaustive search of the house, we discovered Ginger upstairs in the closet1 of my husband's room. The beastie was nosing something sheer and white. Ann picked it up. It was a woman's handkerchief. "I'm afraid he's spoiled it, Jane. Naughty Sweetsie. Too bad, for it is a wonder." - I gave the handkerchief one glance. It was a wonder and it was not mine. , "My what a love of a kerchief," Ann cried, holding up the delicate trifle for Deb to examine. Deborah Burns loves all things beau tiful and she scrutinized the fine hand hemming appreciatevely. "It looks like that Belgian girl's work, you know, the refugee Mrs. Van Wyck is getting orders for. That edge must have been buttonholed under a microscope," she said, then suddenly CUTTING THE FOOD COST You cant expect the price of food to come down until the people produce more food. In spite of the hiCfh cost of wheat and labor Sliredded Wheat Biscuit sells at a very little advance over the former price so small you will hardly notice it. Shredded Wheat is all food-the most real food for the least money. Saves fuel and kitchen bother. Two Biscuits with milk make a satis fying, nourishing meal. JLVJ. 1 N It , iJL. In the kitchen of her own home Sister Mary cooks daily for a family of four adults. Shi brought to her kitchen an understanding of the chemistry of cooking, gained from study of domestic science in a state univer sity. Consequently the advice she offers is a happy com bination of theory and practice. Every recipe she gives is her own, first tried out and served at her family table . If a floor has become badly worn in spots but does not need refinishing all over, most anybody can give i1 a coat of shellac. The choice of shellac is to be recommended as shellac has two qualities of distinct merit. In the first place it is easy to use. Shellac flows from the brush and does not gum and stick. In the second place it dries over night. There is hard ly a room that can't be closed up for 24 hours, at least if one plans a little. A coat of shellac applied late in the af ternoon will be hard enough to use the next morning, if necessary. Menu for Tomorrow BREAKFAST Melons, scrambled eggs with bacon, toast, coffee.

Ann snatched at It with: "I must see it again!" And she looked as mischievous as her weird pet when she spread it out and read the initials in one corner: "K. O. M." She raised a pair of round eyes to mine, caught her breath and giggled. "For the love o' Mike! In Bob's closet. Can you beat it, my dears?" Perhaps the flush in my cheeks in formed the silly bebe that she had made a heart-breaking mistake, and that Deb's attempt to save my pride by tossing the handkerchief to me had been a fine thing. But since the secret was out, Ann made the best of it. according to her own light: "I suppose Ginger found it in the park,' she remarked carelessly. "My! What strong perfume." she threw the bit of linen to a wastebasket. "Give It to me," I exclaimed. o ' DUTCH BROOCHES LATEST NOVELTY The latest novelties in the jewelry line being shown in New York are large Dutch brooches of silver.

ORRIE OWL TAKES A NAP Everything was quiet in the Meadow Grove School as Mr. Scribble Scratch, the fairy schoolmaster, gave out the sums. This was the first problem. "If Billy had five mosquito bites on each of his legs, how many bites did he have?" Chappy Chipmunk held up his hand. 'Tlease, sir," said lie, Is Billy a little boy, or a goat, or a daddy-long-legs, or a thousand-logger?" Mr. Scribble Scratch looked over his glasses. "What do mosquitoes bite mostly?" he asked. Chappy thought a moment. "Little boys in their bare feet, I guess," he answered. "Right!" said Scribble Scratch and went on with the next question, while everybody counted on his fingers and toes what two times five would make. Now while they were all thinking hard. Orrie Owl in his hole in the tree suddenly began to snore like everything. "Bz-z-z-z! Ilm-m-m-m! , lai ' ' " - juuf; , Ln , 1" - - ' - - -u i I ilia in'T- "' -" --' -"'' .j-,' 'II l'... "Ha!" said the schoolmaster, "I'll just reach in and give him a poke." Bz-z-z-z!" he went like a sing-song old saw-mill. And you know how it is when you see anybody yawn, or hear anybody snore, you fell sleepy at once yourself. Well, Immediately the whole school instead of counting out how many bites Billy had, began to sniffle and yawn and str-etch so. that Scribble Scratch ot cross "Nancy," called he, "have you got that dunce-cap made yet? I think we'll need several more before long, too." - Pencils got busy then, and the fairyman tiptoed over to the hole In the tree where Orrie Owl was supposed to sit. "Ha'" said the little schoolmaster softly. 'Til just reach in and give him a poke and wake him up. He can't come to my school and be so lazy. I won t have It at all. I'll send Nick with a note to his father if he doesn t do better. Suddenly he gave a yell. I wonder what happened.
