KQUAIj l'AV KOK WOMKX.
Long Branch. N. J. Henry Ford has
accepted the theory of equal pay for
v women, which lias been so consistently
urged by the trade union movement.
The automobile manufacturer called on
! President Wilson this week and after
wards issued the following statement:
"I had the pleasure to inform Presi
dent Wilson this afternoon that I had
established the women workers of my
plant at Detroit and in the branch fac
tories in other cities, upon a pay equal
ity with the men workers. I took this
step following my conference with the
president more than two weeks ago, and
I did so because of the inspiring talk I
had with Mr. Wilson on the forward
;, movement among womankind. This
I principle is now in operation and 1
look forward with complete confidence
to its vindication."
I Upward of 1,500 women are employed
in the Ford plants. Since October 10,
Mr. Ford explained to the president,
these women have been receiving a
minimum wage of $! a day.

Washington. George I Drysdalc,
treasurer of the Arizona & New Mexico
Railway company, has solved the educa
tional problem. In an address to the
Society of Railway Financial Officers he
stated that nearly all the employes of
his company were Mexicans who could
not read or write and that the thumb
print method was the only means of
getting receipt for wages paid, lie said
tliis system of giving receipts could be,
introduced into the financial systems of I
the larger roads. I
