They are mere ly “on the road.” This class is made up of women, are girls and young boys. While railroad and community po l:ce officials are making every effort to eliminate this class of vagabond, they are having little success. Inci dentally. it has only been during the past year that women have taken to the open road with a vun and deter mination than won't be downed. A railroad brakeman in the Great Northern yards at Minneapolis told me that he had counted 21 on reight trains arriving and departing from that terminal in one week. At Albert l Lea. Minn., a yard switchman on the Minneapolis and St, 'Louis road de clared no fewer than a doeen had passed'through there Doa single week, Railroad men througho'*): the middle west and west tell the same story. In a Na.yjr Batty My first contact with one of these feminine hoboes was in Grind, Forks N. D.. at the junction o the Canadian and West Coast :«ft*k of tbw>Gr«ftt Northern. She wot Lv-iseJ In a 87**’ knitted suit ,tiny bo-’ts with French,' heels and sheer oaiffw hosiery Abif i,he was an pretty girl. • What's the use o' beating around the. bush?” she expostulated when questioned as to why she waj traveling In this way. “It’s easy traveling now. I've lived In New York all my life. I've never seen any of the country. But I’m seeing N. now.’ This girl exemplified the modern girl to the ultimate d&eija. Listen to her: “No, I’m not afraid to travel alone. I can take care of myself, I’ve been doing It' for 22 years. If a man tried to get fresh with me in a box cst I let hfm know where to get off. H® usually does. “And” she added naively "if I have any trouble that 1 can t handle I can always call on th® mem bers of the train crew for he.p ” In Willmar. Minn., two >oung wo men approached the brakeman to whom I was talking. One of them in troduced herself 88 Mai :c Nevln, of Chicago. She asked: "la there any stream near the yards where we can wash our clothes and take a bath? We can't go on looking like this?” Their Objective This gi™ explained that she and her companion had been chorus girls from a Chicago nighrt club. Succinctly. sfa<- told of a long lay-off, a dwindling money supply and a desire to get to Los Angeles to “get in on som-i of the graft there." “But don't you have trouble with men you meet oji the road?” the rail road man asked them. “No”, the other girl declared. “Most of them act like real gentlemen toward us. They offer to help us anc when we do run across any man who ge’e slouchy there’s always aome who will come to our rescue. But.-fbr the most part, the men on the road are treating us more like buddies than women.” In the freight yards at Omaha I ran across a man, woman and baby. The man said that he and hid family had come from Los Angeles and were trying M> get hack to their home in Pennsylvania. “Esther’s been swel about this-” be exclaimed with considerable pride. "She could have stayed with some of her relatives in San Diego, but she did not want me bumming alone. I didn't want her to come, but she’s taking it like a trooper.” “But the baby?” I protested. “He’s three years old," the father said-. “I manage to get enough milk for him. But don’t gefe it Into your head that my wife goea and does any of the humming. I’m the head of this family, and I’m going to get their foqd for them.

I found three such girls in a box car on a Rock Island train between Kansas City and Minneapolis. They were on, their way home and going to the west coast via Washington and Oregon and returning through Arizona New Mexico and Oklahoma.
