work when they aro able to support them and wives who insist on working
when there is no necessity for their doing so should be fined and impris

husbands were shown to be invalids or dead or earning wages below what
would bo be declared the minimum in such eases would do much toward
adjusting the present unsettled economic conditions as regards the workers.
