unemployment situation among women
has apparently no terrors for tho girl

is tho mcccn towurd which shu turns

there will bo jobs without number

who Is head of tho Booms Registry
Service, lins noted little decrense In
tho number of applications for rooms

Situation Is Serious.
"The situation Is rapidly assuming
serious proportions. Women, old and
young, are now being laid off by firms
which have employed them for long
periods. Our employment bureaus are
crowded with women who have been
thrown out of employment, and yet
ever' train that comes Into our
terminals brings Its quota of new
comersall of whom expect to be sup
plied with some means of earning
their livelihood. Not an hour ago I
talked with a girl who had Just come
In from upstate. Nothing I said In
explanation of the seriousness of this
problem that Is confronting so many
of our men and women today had any

part of it Is that wo have so ninny

"Undoubtedly, the wnnderlust which

hard upon the heels of the war. So
many of our girls who until that time
