THE NEWiS SCIMITAR
Is Peace to call more women
out of the Homes ?
Babies or pay envelopes? Must women choose?
Women are being called by the thousands from war
work to peace work. How will they answer? Can they
have both babies and pay envelopes 1 Do they want both ?
In a remarkable review of what American women
have accomplished, Mabel Potter Daggett gives figures
that impress you 33,000 women in the Chicago
stockyards; 2,360 women on the Pennsylvania Railroad;
600 in -a single Wall Street brokerage office. How many
of these women arc married I How many will marry ?
Who will cook the dinners? Who will wash the
babies' faces? Already but read for yourself and see.
In an equally vigorous, compelling discussion, Helen
Ring Robinson takes the opposite view. "Woman must
choose once and for all between home-making and
money-earning. She has no right to both."
Which of these two women is right? What is wo
man's place in this new world to be? Read these two
important articles in Pictorial Review for January.

But which was the spy? With which

Both of the girls were young and
lovely to look upon. One was a charming
Belgian; the other, one of the cleverest,
the most trusted spies in the world.
But which was which? Together
they had dramatically boarded an
American ship from a German sub
marine by special arrangement with
the United States Government the
ship on which Major Douglas Land of
the U. S. Secret Service was a passenger.
Not a living soul on the ship, he
would have sworn, could possibly have
known the contents of the document he
carried from the War Council at
Versailles to Washington.
But there was one who knew. And
so the Major was struck down on the
deck in the dead of the night. And by
the soft hand of a woman.
Which hand had struck the dastardly
blow ? Which of the two was the spy ?
