Students Stage
3-Hour Strike
In Hig h School
Every great war has to some extent
liberated the female of the species.
Women gained suffrage as an indirect
result of their effort in the First
World War, and it is almost certain
that the close of this war will find
women occupying a more and more
important role in the United States.
Evidently, the students of. Kelly
High School in Chicago have felt
that women's rights should be re-
spected in high school as well as
elsewhere for on Wednesday, March
25, they went on a three hour strike
during which they demanded the fol-
That they be allowed to wear sweat-
ers, lipstick, anklets and slacks to
That the Junior Prom be held at
night instead of in the afteinoon;
That boys and girls be aowed to
walk down the halls together.
The Kelly High students expressed
their revolt by refusing to attend
classes for three hours during which
titre they marched up and down the
schoo' grounds in the apparel which
the v. ere forbidden to wear.
A conference between eight strik-
ers and the principal seemed to settle
the strike in favor of the faculty in
that the principal declared that no
such rules existed and the whole
strike was "ridiculous!" "Although I
have stopped a few girls for wearing
too much lipstick, all the rest is a
silly rumor and we'll discuss the
Junior Prom later," she was report-
ed to have said.

Girls' Town-that's wartime Wash-
ington. What with Uncle Sam
"s.o.s.ing" all his nieces, importing
them to Washington and putting
them to work as secretaries, messen-
gers or career women, this invading

into No. 1 Boom Town of the world.

you want to do your part . . . and
incidentally, your Uncle S. is dishing
out salaries to the tune of $1,260 for
junior typist positions-exactly $80
more than the Average American
Family takes in yearly!
Requirements Listed
In case you're seriously interested
in staking your claim in Boom Town,
qualifications include your being an
American citizen between the ages of
18 and 53, in good health and minus
a criminal record. If another hem-
ber of your family is eiployed in

If you are eligible address a letter


to the secretary of the U. S. Civil
Service Commission at Washington,
D. C., for an application blank and
examination information. 700 towns
and cities throughout the United
States hold examinations on the same
day while in Washington they are
given every day . but rule No. 1
is don't go~to 'Washington unless you
first have a job or a place to sleep!
Girls go to Washington for secur-
ity, for after a six-month proba-
tionary period it is practically im-
possible to get fired from a Civil
Service job. Girls go to Washington
.for excitement and who do they find?
Corns and blisters waiting in cafe-
teria lines; headaches searching for
living quarters.
Rooms At Premium
In Washington it is unheard of for
a girl to "live alone and like it" for
every government worker has from
two to three roommates, Rooms are
at a premium and even the swankiest
hotels have set up as many as fifty
cots in their basements. Residential
districts have been re-zoned, for it
is considered unp'atriotic to have a
vacant room and not share it with
a stranger!

Skit To Be Presented
In addition to Johnny Haberd and
his orchestra, Edwin and Ruth
Hughes will present a dance pro-
gram including Mexican, Danish and
Ukranian numbers. Marvin Levey,
'42, and Margaret Cotton, '42, will'

Russian struggles, and it will be ac-
companied by a musical score of
