Continued from Page One.
wasn't worth the paper it was writ
ten on. She spent eighteen months
visiting and inspecting factories and
found pitiful conditions. It was not
only the manufacturers' fault that
such things were, but the fault of ig
norant parents who believed the
children should help support them
selves, and also the fault of the chil
dren, for they wanted the freer life
that going out to work gave, and they
bated school. There is something
wrong with the schools, Miss Gordon
said, when children hate them, and
lie as to their ages to keep from at
They went to the next Legislature
with a bill that had teeth in it, good
sound ones that would hold, and oh,
whit a different reception! Had she
not been a born suffragette, her fa
ther did not believe in the oligarchy
-f sex, this light for the children
would have made her a rampant one.
There were all kinds of lobbies there,
and especially the oyster and shrimp
industry to ask protection for the
shrimp and oysters and get the man
tle of the law to cover the little oys
ters and shrimps while they grew
and developed. But when she asked
them to place the mantle of the State
over the children to permit them to
grow and develop, they said, "Oh,
that was different!" The men looked
at the question from a commercial
view point, what was for the best
"business interests of the State. They
were used to thinking along this
line, but women were in the home
and raised the children and they
-looked at it from the viewpoint of
the child. She didn't blame the men,
but they had to go to every Legisla
ture to hold the Child Labor law they
had. The law was said to be drastic,
but was not to be compared with
tiat of other States, especially north
>and west. In Ohio, she sld, the
igreatest manufacturing State in the.
Union, children had to complete the
8th grade in school before they could
go to work, and then after they had
.ud a job, had to get the permis
a of the facto y inspector to ac
cept it. She hat c, Judge if the work
offered was suitable for the child,
and, if she refused the child had to
desk other work.
The reason conditions exist " as
they are is because people like her
vadence did not see these things. If
ey codld and realized it all condi
tions would be changed. She won
