W "'hpn the American woman left
hr place in the home" on elec
on day she paved the way for the
option of a piece of legislation that
will do more for the home perhaps
"ian any one law in American tiw
' ory. Early next week congress will
onsidr the first legislative propoaal
made by the women of America since
uniersal suffrage was granted. Not
"nly have the omen done the un
recedented thing of asking for a rel
atively insignificant appropriation,
nly 14.000.000 bnt they have point
ed out how that $4,000,000 can be of
s much of more, benefit to the
Vmerican nation as any other 14.060.

H 900 OM.000.
Briefly the women ask that the
rdera! government, in cooperation
tith the states of the union shall
ducat a ronne mothers in the mater-
nty periods so that they will not only
ae the proper knowledge of
. ygiene before and after the birth of
tneir children, out in neeoy cases.

that lack of care was the principal
reason for death. America has been
far behind in this kind of sociai
legislation. The United States stands
14th in the list of civilised countries

New Zealand which has had woman's
suffrage longer than any other coun
try, stands at the top of the list and
has greatly reduced her infant mor
tality Great Britain, also has been in the
front rank in this movement.
The Sheppard-Towner bill, pro
posed by senator Sheppard of Texas.
Democrat, and representative Town
er of Iowa, a Republican, would ap
propriate S2.600.000 at first bat with
provision to increase It annually till
it reaches $4,000,000 and the states
of the union would be asked to ap- j
propriate dollar for dollar in the
same way that the federal govern- (
ment and the states have cooperated '
in building roads. It is not com
pulsorv. a state may decline to co
operate but probably not many of
them will refuse.
Now Is Time to StriLe
The senate committee on pub. 1c
health has reported the bill favorably
and senator Kenyon, who has charge
of the agricultural bill being die- J
cussed in the senate has promised to 1
give way for consideration of the j
Towner-Sheppard measure so that it
will get prompt attention. The wom
en insist that unless they get action

there will not be another opportunity
to get the matter before various state 1
legislatures until 1932. As some of i
them meet only once every two years.
and usually daring January and j
February so that postponement of
this subject until the extra session
of cfloereM In snrtnjr would be hurt
ful to the cause. The women leaders
declare that 2&6.000 deaths is too
mnch to allow. It is three times the
number of casualties on the American
battle front during the war. And
therefore the leaders in the move
ment are not disposed to brook in

Some congressmen were distant at
first, thinking the attention of public
nurses might be forced upon people,
bnt It was legislated that there -were
thousands of poor people who would
ha frlad to est anr sort of attention
and that in no case was It compul
sory that aid be accepted.
B1H Likely to Pass
The Catholic welfare societies and
the welfare organisations of other
churches have got behind the bill and i
tU vwnllt nf ranrresi show that It :
will pass by an overwhelming vote.
It is Interesting to observe that the
bill does not create any new leaerai

Billion Dollars Dae U. S.
In Unpaid Tax Since 1917
Washington. D. C, Dec 14. The
treasury department estimates that
"more than a billion dollars" is out

the returns. Dr. Thomas S. Adams of
the treasury staff testified today at
hearing on taxation before the house
ways and means committee.
Because of the complex nature of
present revenue laws. Dr. Adams
added, the Internal revenue bureau
