registration of women, for war
service on Wednesday is being urged.
A . . I f . . t . 1
a nouse-to-nouse visitation ior tne
purpose of arousing interest and in
viting women to appear at the polls
is being carried on so far as work
ers have time to canvass.
Mrs. Margaret E. Sheldon, chair
man of registration in Nebraska, env
phasizes the following points:
This '.$ the first official registration
of all women called for by the United
States. It is, therefore, a great event
and will be history. No woman
should fail to have a direct part in it
It is voluntary. Therefore, going to
the polls and registering are, in them
selves, marks ot patriotism.
Doing for her country in the future
what she pledges on September 12
to do, is wholly a matter of ,honor
with each woman. No punishment or
censure will come to her if she finds
herself unable to carry out her prom
This registration is held for the
purpose of giving each loyal woman
citizen an opportunity ot Saying di
rectly to her government how she
is serving it, how she wishes, in case
of dire need, to serve it further..
It registers women for what they
are doing, or what they wish to do,
or what they wish to be trained to
do in all departments of war work.
Hence it does not necessarily im
pose additional burdens upon those
already at work. It does not mean
another organization. It coordinates
all present war ' work organizations
Every woman should register, even
though she is already busy serving her
country as a homemaker with children
about her knees or in some other
worthy time-consuming way.
Thousands of young men are being
called from the industrial and bust
ness and professional lines of work
to bear arms for our country. This
must inevitably result in much of this
work being done by young women
There is an opportunity for young
women to state their fitness to take
up any of these lines of work and to
indicate whether or not they wish to
receive a salary. The government al
ready is sending out ior women to
do certain lines of work.
The registration card itself is a
treat compliment to American worn
en, by implying there are so many
worthy lines or work which women
can do to serve their country.
It is the first time in the history
of Nebraska that the polling places
have been given to all the women of
the state for their use.
The Association of Collegiate
Alumnae will hold a reception at' the
