GIRLS QUIT SCHOOL
Government Looks Up Cause for
Investigation Shows They Do Not
Abandon Opportunity for Educa
tion and Go to Work Becauoo
Parents Need the Money.
Washington. The idea that chil
dren leavo school to go to work be
cause their parents need the money,
is vigorously combatted in a bulletin
issued by the United Slates bureau of
education. The authors of the bulle
tin have mado a careful study of
trade nnd labor conditions among
girls in Worcester, Mass., preliminary
to the establishment of a trade school
for girls. They find that from one
' half to three-fourths of tho girls at
work in tho factories could have had
further schooling if they had wanted
to or if their parents had cared to in
sist upon it.
The survey showed that the num
Der of girls between 14 nnd 1C years
of age who leave school is constantly
increasing. During the past five years
many more girls between those ages
left tho Worcester schools than can
bo accounted for by increase in popu
lation. Only about 17 per cent, of
them had finished tho grammar
schools; most of them left in the
sixth and severth grades.
Why did tho girls leavo school?
Various reasons wore assigned by the
girls themselves. Some 30 girls
said they "did not like school;" "could
not get along with the teacher;" "were
not promoted," or "wanted to go to
work." Two wero working to help pay
for a piano. One of these jvas a cash
girl of 14 years, who had left the
ninth grade to go to work In a de
partment store for $2, later $2.50 a
week. Another was a girl of 15 from
tho eighth grade, who went to work
in a corset factory for $1 and rose to
$1.82. Still another girl was taking
music lessons and contributing to
tho payment on tho piano.
Twenty-seven girls were found at
homo. In somo cases they had left to
help in housework, while a few had
left nt a time of temporary stress and
then had not returned to school. Four
girls had changed places with tho
mother, who worked in a corset fac
tory, laundry, or some such place,
whilo the girl whose wnge-earnlng
pover was small kept house for the
mother of the children.
Curious differences as to what the
parents thought they could afford
wero discovered: Tho mother of a
family of eight children, living in ap
parently direct poverty, would have
been glad to have sacrificed and
pinched still further to have hud her
daughter stay in school longer 1 she
' would. The mothor of another fam
ily of six, living in a comfortable
apartment house, with hardwood
floors, piano, nnd other luxuries, said
her daughter wished to stay in school
longer, but tho burden of supporting
tho family was too heavy for the fath
er to bear alone; so the girl was ta
ken out of school to go to work. A
visit to a Swedish family revealed a
carpenter and his wife, a washerwo
man, who had Just built and owned a
now three-story apartment house. Vet
tho lG-yoar-old daughter with a sev-cnth-grado
education had been sent to
work In a paper goods factory nt $2 a
' week. "Tho question 'Why did you
leavo school?' was put to tome 330
more maturo workers in the corset
trade. Nlnoty-ono per' cent, of those
women had left school between the
nges of 111 nnd 1G, and fully CO per
cent, because of their dislike of school
or because thoy wanted to go to
work. Of 74 workers In a clothing
factory 85 per cent, had left school
between the ages of 13 and 1G, 25
per cent, of their own 'volition."
In the opinion of the authors of the
bulletin, conditions such as wero
found in Worcester emphasizes tho j
imperative need for special training i
of a practical sort for girls between
the ages of 13 nnd 15. In tho main
tho children left school simply be-
causo they disliked the school work.
Not getting the kind of training they '
might have liked and would have
proilted by, they blindly joined tho
army of shifting, inellicinnt. discon
tented girls that go from ono monot
onous factory Job to another, and, be
cause of their lack of training, rarely
rise above tho class of low-paid, un

ITCHING AND BURNING
Iberia, Mo. "I was troubled with
scalp eczema for about flvo years and
tried everything I heard of, but nil of
no avail. Tho doctors told mo I would
havo to havo my hend shaved. Being
a woman, I hated the idea of that, I
was told by a friend that tho Cuticura
Remedies would do mo good. This
spring I purchased two boxes ot Cuti
cura Ointment nnd one enko of Cuti
cura Soap. After using ono box of
Cuticura Ointment I considered tho
cure permanent, but continued to uso
it to mnko euro nnd used about ono
half tho other box. Now I am entirely
woll. I also used tho Cuticura Soap.
"Tho disease began on tho back of
my head, taking tho form of a ring
worm, only moro severe, rising to a
thick, rough scale that would come off
when soaked with oil or warm water,
bringing a few hairs each time, but In
a few days would form again, lnrgor
each time, and spreading until tho en
tire hack of tho head wns covered with
the scale. This was accompaniod by
a terrible itching nnd burning sensa
tion. Now my head Is completely well
and my hair growing nicely." (Signed)
