More Women Are
Eunning Lifts in
More and more girls are taking jobs
- in Omaha office buildings operating
the elevators. For years a woman has
been operating an elevator in the
Brown block, and for a long time she
was the only woman handling such a
job in OmahL or In the middle west.
Recently, however, the women have
been displacing men in these jobs in

This movement began to take on
speed in Omaha after the convention
of the National Building Owners and
Managers was held in Omaha some
weeks ago. At that time some of the
building managers reported their suc
cesses with women as elevator oper
ators, and at several conferences held
on the subject, managers pointed out
that the women are in many cases
even more careful and painstaking
than the men in this work. At the
same time it was pointed out that the
installation o' women in these jobs
would tend to release more men for
the armies and for other important
jobs that men can fill in these times
better tha.i women.
Immediately after that convention
managers of the larger office buildings
iuTOmaha began to look for women to
operate elevators, and the result is
that every day one finds another
building that is trying out the scheme.

The Moores were married in Hor
ton. Kan., in 1893. One of his charges
against his wife is the allegation that
she once asked that a certain girl
working in his department be dis
charged and then made a scene at
railroad headquarters because he
would not comply with the request.
Moore says he was sent to Como,
Colo., on business and relates that his
wife insisted on accompanying him.
When they got there, he says, they
discovered there was only "one house
in the town fit to live in." He says his
wife refused to live in this house. On
another occasion, Mcore alleges, she
prevented him from accompanying
several high-up Union Pacific officials
on an inspection trip.
Moore sets forth that he went to
Missouri in 1915 to visit a brother
and that his wife had him arrested on
a charge of white slavery, which he
says was so absurd that officials im
mediately released him when he had
made explanations. He, says she again
had him arrested on the same charge
in Omaha and caused his confinement
in jail for a short time.
