commission, Says that in‘almost ev-

imy reminders of the‘ " growing
jstrength of the United Nations,
zAmerican women workers know
there is a sample of their work."
Mr. McNutt and other government
and civic leaders joined in praising
'the role which women are playing
in industrial war work. He said
that by the end of the year there
would be 4,400,000 women in war
industries and that the number
would increase as the war length
“In this great productive effort
‘the women of America are working
'side by side with men," Mr. Mc-
Nutt said. “They have demonstrat
ed their ability not only by doing
light assembly work but highly tech
nical jobs."
Prove Their Ability.
Others who praised women work
ers were Secretary Perkins. Mrs.
John L. Whitehurst, president of the
General Federation of Women’s
Clubs, and Miss Mary Anderson, di
rector ot the women’s bureau of
the labor department and the Office
of War Information.
Secretary Perkins said that thou
sand: of American women were
“working efl‘icieatly; in all parts of
the country on war orders and their
employment willincrease greatly in
the coming months.” They were
showing “high adaptability” for war
production along many lines. ape

compared the compensations of the
American woman war-worker and
her counterpart in Germany, show
ing that American girls were free
to decide whether they would or
would not marry, and whether they
would or would not have a family.
_ Freeto Quit;
- - "No government, hungry, for in
creasing sources of future manpow
er, for conquest, is swinging the
'whip-lash over‘ their private lives
demanding, in addition to work, the
marriage of single” girls and the pro
duction of ofispring within 18
months,” the OWI said.
“They are free to quit their jobs
it they wish; tree to join a union of
their trade; free to speak their
minds on politics, the conduct of
the government and of the war; to
look at, read and listen to whatever
they wish.” '
The necessity of paying‘ to women
the same wages given to men it
both were doing comparable work
was emphasized, by” Miss Anderson.
She said that this compensation
yardstick was necessary for the mo

New Almanacl: de Gotha
Has a Tough Time of It
LONDON—TheNazis had a hard
job in the latest edition of the Al
manach de Gotha, once famous for
its accurate and detailed informa
tion, in sorting out various Quislings
and kingdoms without kings.
The frontispiece is a portrait of
Victor Emmanuel, “King of Italy
and Albania, Emperor of Abyssinia.”
The latter reference probably would
come as a startling piece of news
to Emperor Haile Selassie, who sits
on his throne in Addis Ababa, once
more. -
Jugoslavia appears as Croatia, in
dependent state, and Montenegrore
appears sitter-24 years as a-mon'o?
archy, but with no name for its king'.‘
Wang Ching-wei, the puppet prime
minister at Nanking, is recognized
for the first time by the Germans,
but at the same time the Almanach
includes the names of envoys ac
credited to ,Chungking.

Ralph G. Engelsman, Associate
Field Director of the payroll savings
section of the War Savings Staff,
readily admits that without the sup
port of women the phenomenal rec

would not have been achieved. Pay
roll savings plans are now in opera

tories. 'Employees of twenty-five
thousand of these firms are convert
ing at least 10 percent oi gross pay
rolls into War Bonds every payday.
Associate Field Director Engels
man'says‘that women have contribo
uted directly and indirectly toward
this record. When a man devoted 10
or more percent of his pay envelope
to War bonds. the woman at home
has had a powerful voice in the de
cision. _Her plann'ing,,her economies
and her cheerfulness play their part
in the success of payroll savings.
The Treasury Department is count
ing upon this woman influence in its
current campaign to “top that 10
percent by New Year’s.” By the
first of the year the Treasury hopes
to enroll at least 3,000,000 women
workers in a payroll savings plan

NEW YORK—Beware of the

Britain Hopes to Ease

LONDON—To help "women war—
workers who have no time for shop

workers on Saturday afternoons.
They would have to show their
factory. passes before being served.
This is the idea of Miss G. M.
Cross, welfare ofiicer at the min
istry of health.
She is trying the plan in the Lon
don area. The tood control commit
tee agreed to help and sent out
2,000 letters to shopkeepers asking
for their support. If the shopkeep
ers agree Miss Cross will try to put
over her idea in other parts of Lon
don and then in the North.
"The idea is to make certain that
women war-workers can go shopping
once a week if they want to." said
