MURTLAND ADDRESSES
WOMEN'S MEETING OF
EDUCATIONAL GRBDOUP
TELLS 0P V[SIT TO SCHOOLS
AND PLANTS OF FRANCE
AND ENGLAND
Conditions In Fifteen Factories And
Various Universities Are Seen
During Study Made
"Industrial Plants and Schools in
England and France" was the subject
of the talk given by Miss Murtland
at the meeting of the Women's Edu-
cational Club held Monday evening
at the Pi Beta Phi House.
Miss Murtland's objectives during
her seven months visit in France and
England were given as first, close
contact with the life of the people in
the home and industrial plants in
order to compare the conditions in
England with those in the United
States; and, second, a 'study to dis-
cover how students in foreign coun-
tries compared with those here. An ;
insight into the student life was (gain-
ed by attendance at the London School
of Economics. Miss Murtland found
that there students were not checked
up on what hours they worked but
on what they accomplished.
Under the guidance of the Welfare
Organization of London the speake
was able to visit fifteen different fac-
tories and observe the working condi-
tions found there. The organization
under whose auspices she was able
to do this trains people in conjjunc-
tion with the various universities and
colleges to do personnel work in the
factories. Miss Murtland stated that
these people were trained to stand be-
tween the workers and the employers
and to take a broad view of the situa-
tion and see the needs of both. In
England the duties of the welfare
worker include workmen's compensa-
tion, the hiring and discharging of
workers, old gage insurance, and tak-
ing care of the dinbig rooms at- the
factories.
"Everywhere English and French
workmen hoWA on to craftsmanship to
keep their noses above water," stated
Miss'Murtland in making some gener-
alization of the varying conditions.
"They are afraid of the term "division
}of labor a used in this country.
Labor saving means putting a man out
of a job. Labor is not mobile in c
England, and because of the unem-
ployment workmen hold on to the
jobs they hrave and are afraid of all
change."
"There is another fzactor that makes
English factories different from those
of the United States," continued the
speaker. "The workers are a homo-
genou's group. They are all British.
On the whole English life is much
quieter than that in this country."
Miss Murtland found that the con-
ditions in French farctorties were
eimilar to those in England. Espe-
cially was handiwork stressed in the
that eventually our methods of pro-
duction will be adopted in both Eng-
land and France.

BOASTS SEVERE SERVICE
PARIS, July 3 - Rene Buzelet,

the tennis horizon in the internation-
al hardeourt championships at Au-

non. Rene de Buzelet is a player of
the flashy Henri Cochet variety rather
than the steady, plodding, relentless
Rene Lacoste school.
