Feb. 10. 1913. "My dear Friend. Margaret Shearman. I enclose herewith some of my reasons for believing In the Ten Hour I^w. T sincerely hope you may succeed in getting the taw passed nnd even If you do not, 1 lie work will not be lost. Truly thy friend, George A. Rhoads. If I can bo of any service let me know. "Why do 1 believe in the Ten Hour Law?" I believe In the proposed Ten Hour Law for Women for humane and economic reasons. It seems to be a well established fact that It Is par tlcularly Injurious to women, because of their delicate organization, to work long hours, or to be obliged to stand long at a time, women are exhausted, day after day. by long hours of work, their efficiency Iti decreased, and It is not even econ oinlc for their employers, as some of us have proved in our own exper ience. Where men and I believe that many who have women and girl« in their establish ments will welcome the Ten Hour Law, for they would gladly spare their women If they did not think they were forced to longer hours by competition. The adoption of this law would re move this kind of competition and In its place create competition In effi ciency and this. In Its turn would lead to better accommodation« for em ployees, for. to be most efficient, they tnust be In the best of health. Perhaps the very strongest ar gument for shorter hours for women, is the conservation theory, which, however, Is more than a theory, and reaches beyond the present to future generntlons, and effects the future destinies of nur nation, and about which much has well been written and said. If the "Son Is father to the Man," the daughter is mother to the nation, and we should give hcr a fair chance. Very truly. George A, Rhoads.
