OPEN ROAD JOUR TQoFactory Work Gives Varied Experience-
rr Aiii omen Sas Cnthia Smith

A~:1L U N JULT iJI.J- One of the two representatives from1

was a box factory. Here she discov-
ered, as it is a case in many factories,
that the women remained a great
length of time or a very few weeks.
The average salary here was $25.
While this seems a reasonable wage
for a working woman, it did seem
rather small to the woman who was
supporting two children and a sick
husband in the hospital besides. Miss
Smith stayed here two weeks as she
did in the next factory.
From here she entered into a tail-
or shop which was a member of the
American Amalgamated Clothing
Workers of America. This was her
first experience in a union shop. The
shop was located in the Polish district
of Chicago and the work gave oppor-
tunities of making contact with the
foreign element.
In conclusion Miss Smith believes
that union is doing much to improve
conditions and that as a rule the em-
ployees are more satisfied. Miss Smith
urges that more women try this work,
asserting that she is sure that they
will find it helpful, interesting, and an
experience well worth the trouble.

A certain very chic Parisienne
Was dres'sing for a smart luncheon at Pierre's. She cut her wrist in
making a hasty manicure. Her maid, with an innate sense of the
artistic, tied a large lace-trimmed chiffon 'kerchief around madam's
wrist. Thus adorned, our chic Parisl-cnne attended the luncheon. A
few days later the "Wrist 'Kerchief" had become firmly established
in the mode.
Today these dainty square's of chiffon bordered in lace are made in
delicate pastel shades. You may find them at
