AIM AT WOMEN LOAFERS Mrs. Raymond Brown, of New York city, who has Just returned from France, declares that there should be passed In every State an antlloafing law for women between eighteen and fifty. Mrs. Brown believes that the principal duty of American women now Is to maintain standards of liv ing, and sees much to be done in con structive social work, such as child welfare. In France women are working twelve hours a day. with two hour' recess at noon, and the prlvllt-ge of working eight hours in the United States under first rate conditions should not be neglected, according to Mrs. Brown, who Is now Interested In organizing a hospital unit for over seas service. 16 MARINES HONORED General Pershing has awarded dis- f unsuisneu service crosses lo sixteen officers and men of the Marine Corps for their gallantry in action, the War Department has announced.

FAVORS TRADE UNIONS The Whitley committee (the Brit ish committee on relations between employers and employes holds, as do the United States War Labor Board and the Canadian government. that organizations, both of employ ers and employes, are advantageous. "Our proposals, as a whole, assume the existence of organizations of both employers and employes and a frank and full recognition of such organizations," the committee re ports. "We think there should be complete and coherent organization of trade on both sides to be of value" The committee also favors the es tabllshment of works committees composed of shop employes, to ad just all minor troubles, but not to Interfere in questions of wages. .(IIIIIIIIIIIBHRiIHDIIIIIIIIIIIHkv jBHI w i I ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssK t 1 isssssssssssssssssssssssBissBaiisssssssssssssssssssssssV t t JUHMmiHIilllllMIIIIIIIIIB ' ? gpmBmmm STCKfSG&Mffi&ftSfcVQXCS&SSi OH MARY VALK&R Efforts being made to break dowa child labor laws so that children may be employed for war work, were op posed In a statement made esterday hv- Felix Frankfurter, chairman of the War Labor Policies Board. "The Imperative need for a max! mum production of the materials of war," says Mr. Frankfurter, "requires that all available reservoirs of labor bs drawn upon. The exigencies of the national situation are such that MriTpmnt Kiicrfrpstlons that child la- 1 'I bor be utilize!) have been heard. In view of this fact, ana in view gi mi probable increasing demands that children be included In the Industrial mobilization for war, the policy of the war production agencies of the government should be clearly Kepi in mind. "The War Labor Policies Board, which Is the voice of all the Indus trial agencies of the Government, has In part defined this policy by antl-chlld-labor regulations con tained In the contracts made by the war administration." These regulations are thus enum erated by Mr. Frankfurter: 1. That no child under fourteen years of age shall be employed on war work. 2. That no child between fourteen and sixteen years of age shall be employed more than eight hour a -day, nor before 6 a. m. nor after 7 p. m.. nor more than six days a week on war materials.

"It H my Judgment," the Secre tary said, "that the income tax should be paid alike by everyone those in the naval service and all omer military service as well as thoe In the civilian walks of life." Constant interchange of order would make It impossible for the Navy Department to determine who shall and who shall not pay the tax.

TOKYO, Sept. 20 Marquis Saionji has been selected to undertake the task of forming a Japanese cabinet, to be based. It is believea, on political parties. The Marquis SalonJI Is one of the strongest men in the empire. He vir tually has the rank of elder states man. The marquis Is a former presi dent of the seiyukat and retired from politics in 1914. The designation of the marquis es premier Is expected to have a soot'i ing effect on the adherents of the plan to have the government based on parties. The greatest problem of the new cabinet will be to decide on Japan's attitude toward the reconstruction of the Russo Austro-German front, which W believed to be favored by Great Britain and France. It is reported that Marquis Okuma has recommended Viscount Kato for the post of foreign minister in the new cabinet. . s.
