The girls' employment committee
of the Y. W. C. A., composed of Dean
Jordan, Mrs. J. 0. Reed, Mrs. L. C.
Karpinski, and Miss Katherine King,
has formulated a set of rules to gov-
ern the amount of outside work a uni-
versity girl will be expected to do. It
was decided that a girl who works in
a home for her board and room, and
is regarded as one of the family,
should not be required to give more
than three and a half hours of her
time daily.
When a girl takes the place of a ser-
vant, not more than two and a half
hours daily should be expected. These
girls should be given the use of the
parlor. at least once a week in which
to entertain callers.
Formerly no stipulated wage for,
the girl who stayed evenings with
children had been fixed. The com-
mittee determined that ten cents an
hour should be paid and that after
ten o'clock she should be given an es-
cort. When working after 10:30
o'clock twenty cents an hour should
be paid. It was also decided that the
girl that works by the hour when the
labor 'is light should be paid fifteen}
cents an hour and for heavy work
twenty cents an hour.
The committee is anxious to se-
cure the names of all girls who want
to do light work by the hour. They
should apply between 10 and 12
o'clock at Newberry hall.
