MISS P. C. THORNE GETS FEDERAL .1011 Another woman executive has been appointed by Secretary of La bor Wilson in the war labor admin istration. This is Miss Florence C. rhome, of Washington, D. C, and formerly of Hannibal, Missouri, who for the past six years has been on he personal staff of President iompers as assistant editor of The American Fedcrationist, the offi cial organ of the American Federa ion of Labor. Miss Thorne will be issistant director of the Working londitions Service in the Depart nent of Labor, the function of which s to examine into the working coa litions in the war industries, deter mine the standards which should be naintained, and adopt rules and neans for enforcing such stan lards. Grant Hamilton, formerly legisla te chairman for the American Federation of Labor, is director of he service, which will have offices in the Ouray Building in Washing ton, together with several other icw branches of the U. S. Labor Department. Miss Thorne is a member of the Mews Writers' Union and of the ixecutive board of the Washington Committee of the National Wom en's Trade Union League. The appointment of Miss Thorne o one of the most responsible exec- Itive positions in the war labor administration is regarded by women if organised labor as another sig nificant recognition by the Federal Government of the need for ex pression of women's point of view in the national labor policies, as well is for the work of their hands. At least four other women have recently been appointed to positions of such character—namely, Miss Mary Van Kleek, chief of the Women in In lustry Service, and Miss Mary An lerson, assistant chief; Miss Ger ' rude Barnum, assistant director of the new Inspection and Investiga tion Service; and Mrs. Margaretta N'eale. the new chief of the Women's Division of the United States Em ployment Servjee.

GOMPERS'VISIT TO HIS OLD HOME Weighty Affairs Wait for Samuel Gompers While He Visits Scene of His Boyhood Life LONDON, Sept. 10.—Samuel Gom ptn, president of the American Fed eration of Labor, put international affairs to one side on his arrival here and made his first business a visit to his boyhood home. It was an event of great Importance In the little section of Last London known as Spittlegate. Mr. Gompers had only visited England Mice before since he had left England as a boy to seek his fortune in America. His previous visit was nine years ago. Mr. Gompers was accompanied to day on the journey to Fort Street by several members of the American labor mission. They went down in two American army automobiles and got out at the street corner. Mr. Compel s stopped when he alight ed and standing in the middle of the street recalled many scenes of his boyhood. "The old street has not changed much," he said as he stood in front of the house which had been bis home for many years. "That old public house on the corner looks exactly as it diil when I used .to listen to the crowd of old cigar makers discussing politics there in the evening when I was a mere slip of a boy." While Mr. Gompers was talking an old woman of over eighty years, wearing a long gray shawl, hobbled ii)), looked at the stranger a mo ment and then broke in: "I know you, Sam Gompers," she said. "Many's the time I gave you a piece of my mind when you used to live there," pointing to the house where Mr. Gompers was born. The old woman had not seen him since he left London as a youthful ap pi entice cigarmaker. Mr. Gompers himself has a Wonderful memory and It was easily a match for that of the old woman's. He spent some minutes talking over old times ..iib her, asking about various boy hood playmates most of whom have been dead long since. Presently the old woman left to tell the neighbors and soon the lit tle gi oup of labor men were sur rounded by a great throng of Spittle gate people, all of whom were anxious to see the man who had j risen to great power from the hum -1 ble surroundings of their great j street, Mr. Compels spent a very happy half hour in the midst of the crowd of the children) grandchildren and even great-grandchildren of per sons whom he remembered as neigh bors of his father and mother. He particularly enjoyed the children and got on well with them. Spittlegate is deep in the interior of London's East End, which is not so different from New York's East. Side except that it is greater in ex tent and much older. Never before had American army automobiles been seen in remote Fort Street and they shared the attention of the crowd with the visitors. The chil dren crowded about the automobile; watching every gesture and motion of the American chauffeurs in their stiange field service caps. With open mouths the children accepted gifts of pennies which the chauffeurs threw to them, hot declined the ef forts made by the Americans to be come better acquainted. There was a great deal of hand shaking as Mr. Gompers bade his old and new friends farewell after promising to make the street an other visit before returning to Amer ica. In the afternoon Mr. Gompers called at American Army Headquar ters to see Major General Biddle and Surgeon General Winter. Af terward he paid a surprise visit on Major Kndieott, the American Red Cross Commissioner, at Red Cross Headquarters. He asked Major En dicott if he could arrange to visit the American Red Cross hospitals to see the American wounded. Ar rangements were made immediately and Mr. Gompers went next day to the hospitals to distribute cigars to seven hundred Americans, sick or wounded, who recently have ar rived in London from the Western front.

McAnarney) Why drive a nail with two blows of the hammer when one will suf fice? That second blow is waste —waste that quickly wears down. It is useless expenditure of vital energy. Every worker in the land is a store house of energy. He must safeguard it, protect it, nur ture it; not for the sake of doing the task of two workers poorly, but to do well the work of one. The worker who labors diligently every working clay, conscientiously per forming his duty without injury to himself, without endangering his health, without dissipating his vital ty, is a bulwark of the nation. His very steadfastness is a moral force in his community; his stamina i constant rebuke to the idler and the shirker. Idleness is waste. Shirking is waste, multiplied ten fold. These are times when the 'dler or the shirker is not wanted; :,hese are days when every worker -rust carry his full share of respon sibility, when each blow of the ham mer must be made to count, when ■ very one must conserve his strength, bank his energy. He must hold his reserve force in eadiness to enter the line. That may be the essential element •leeded to win the war. Good "union made" tobacco is in :he market everywhere.

INVESTMENT WITHOUT CASH m Exchange tour Precious Metals lor War Savings Stamps Another important movement in the War Savings campaign has been the establishment in Seattle of a War Savings Metal Exchange, which has taken quarters at Fourth and Pine streets. The Metal Exchange will receive your old gold, silver and platinum, have it assayed by the Government Assay Office, and pay for its value in War Savings and Thrift Stamps. The people all over the state are invited to send precious metals to this office. An experienced assayer will be on hand during business to wait until the Government assays are completed to get your Stamps. This office is patterned after the New York office and is being man aged under the direction of State Director Kelleher. Like the New York office, the immediate manage ment is in charge of Mrs. Alex ander F. McEwan, Chairman of Com mittee, and the following Commit tee: Mrs. Henry Suzzallo, Mrs. John Eddy, Mrs. Kelleher, Mrs. Treat, Mrs. Paul Henry, and Mrs. L. D. Stedman. Everb'ody has more or less gold or silver trinkets which are of no particular value, which he could convert into War Savings Stamps on the best possible terms. He will be helping his country and helping himself at the same time, and this is a genuine opporthnity to do it. The New York Metal Exchange has required to be enlarged to meet the demands of business and has been receiving metals from all over the country for redemption in War Savings Stamps. Among other con tributions, were silver from a Texas cowboy, championship cups, badges, medals, wedding presents, and heir looms of all kinds. 1 Send your metals by registered i mail to the War Savings Metal 1 Exchange and a reply will be promptly forthcoming.
