SAFE FOR LIFE
AND LIMB, BUT— V (Continued From Page One.) about 1,100 cases, about 1.800 of fice Interviews and more than 200 trial case investigations. The majority of this work was done personally by Mr. Thomas, although the probation officer does not take the credit for it in his report. In speaking of industrial conditions Mr. Thomas states in his report: “Many women have teen, in this court on both trial cases and informally that have frankly toid us that as long as '.hey were at home looking after their family they never have a single thought of being unfaithful to their hnabands and families, but when they entered the factories to work the general atmos phere changed entirely; there they came in Intimate contact with both men an 1 ! women, whose conversation was loose and vile, little acts of familiarity be tween the men and women soon under mined their wall of self-real stance, lit tic by little they lost the loTe and sa credne*B of their home, which they be gun to feel was a drudgery, yielding a litttle here and a little there until the wall crumbled and fell. SPENT MICH TIME AND MONEY. “Many factories have spent much time and spared no expense in providing , recreation and entertainment for their employes; this is a most commendable thing and yet it has had some very bad results. “After the days mingling together in the factory and the employes meet at night for the entertainments, there comes another featnre, that of “dressed up” familiarity. Here they dance and mingle together becaus3 they work at the same place and feel that whatever they do is excusable. "Married women allow the men to take them home, and say well ’we work at the same place,’ and feci they are justi fied. “The wearing of the ‘overall’ by the women has been a wonderful ’safety first’ for life and limb, but a ‘derail’ to the morals of many. “This situation is not true of all the factories of Indianapolis, but in a num ber of them. “Case after case has come from the same factory and especially in certain departments. In one or two factories we have had several of the foremen in as being the instigators of many downtown engagements of men and women under them.” problem of NEGRO LABORER. Mr. Thomas also discussed at length the problem of the negro laborer and this Is the first time that a county official has touched on this subject, it is said, in an annual report. In speaking of this phase of the indus trial problem, Mr. Thomas said: “Another phase of the industrial sita sation In Indianapolis, which has caused this department so much work and con cern, end yet I realize that it can only BEAR OIL For .

L bo solved by patience and the co-opera tion of all that touch this phase of work. “In the last two years, many thousand of colored people have come from the southland to the city on account of the heavy demand for labor, a large per cent can neither read nor write, they have always depended on their employer, or someone else to transact all their busi ness for them, both the father and mother have always worked and they have lived in only one or two rooms. “With their coming to Indianapolis, because of the strength and rugged con ditions, the women go Into the factories and packing plants at $lB and S2O a week, while the men care not for the kind of work nor the hours. Just tho money, until many draw S4O and $45 a week. “We have found case after case where these people go to work and leave thesr children, who are only 5 and 6 years cld, and some as young as 1 year, locked In the house all day by them selves. “Their natural fondness for music, their Ignorance of money values and how to see after their own affairs, but depend on someone else, makes them the victims of Installment houses, etc. “In caaa after case we have found the children sleeping in the corner of one Government Lumber Sale Offices Open from 8 A.
