MILLION WOMEN IN
BRITISH WAR PLANTS
Take Place of Skilled Men and
Are Quick to Learn Diffi
cult Tasks; Work on
Equal Pay Basis.
More than 1,000,000 women are now
employed in munition plants in Eng
land and are engaged in mcst classes
of skilled labor, according to a study
of the employment of women pre
pared by the industrial bureau of the
"At the beginning of the emolov-
ment of women in 1915," the report
says, "practically all employers in
England looked upon the introduc
tion of a woman into a machine shop
as one of the horrors of war, but
nothing has been so remarkab e as
the change in the attitude of manufac
turers toward the employment of a
woman. Now if any question arises
as to the employment of a woman or
an unskilled man no employer will
hesitate to employ the woman. She
has been found to be quicker in ac-
i quiring skill and is far better and
I faster than the type of man left in
; the factories now."
' The report gives the experience of
some factories to show that the intro
duction of women labor has usually
benefited the men, because the women
have first been placed in the unskilled
labor class and the men in that class
moved up into the semi-skilled class,
commanding higher pay.
Equal Pay for Equal Work.
"Later on," the report continues,
"when practically all of the useful men
had been drafted or had gone into
the munition industries the labor sup
ply department adopted the scheme
of using women for every job women
could do or could be trained to do.
In this connection a condition at
tached to their use, agreed upon by
both capital and labor, should be
mentioned. It was agreed that
women undertaking skilled work
x should receive the same day rate as
skilled men and the same piece rate.
A woman's wage could differ from
that of a man only when employed on
unskilled or semi-skilled work and
then she came up under an order
which fixed the minimum wage at a
rate which in general came to about
hvo-thirds of the man's wages, vary
ing with the district involved. The
lower rate on unskilled work was due
to the fact that women were found
to be less effective on these general
tasks, because on heavy lifting and
such work it was found necessary to
replace two men with three women.
"The conditions of pay for women
have not been particularly ad
vantageous to employers directly,
but indirectly they have been of very
great value. As a result ot the good
wages that women have been able to
earn cn munition work, employers
have never lacked applicants for al
most every kind of work. At the
present time the emDloyment of wo
men in England is limited only to
the facilities tor training them. As
a further result of equal wages, the
class of women taken into the mu
nition plants has been much above
the class of the factory girl and the
woman employed by the textile
works before the war. Women of
good position and with fair educa
tion have been tound, and this
doubtless has had a very great in
fluence on the variety of work on
which it has been possible to employ
Women in Skilled Work.
It soon became apparent that wo
men could be rapidly trained into
skilled workmen, according to the
report. One factory, making light
shells, was cited in which 94 per
cent of the employes were women.
"Taking shell, fuse and grenade
work as a whole, the average num
ber of women employed is about 80
,eper cent. Of the skilled operations.
' such as Howitzer work, the averages
are not so high, but there are in
dividual cases which show just as
high a percentage of women em
ployes. In the largest English ex
plosive factory there are 15,000 hands,
and of these 11,000 are women. On
trinitrotoluol manufacture the aver
age is about 80 per cent women, and
on picric acid the average is about
40 per cent. On filling fuses and that
class of work the average is gen
erally well over 90 per cent.
"Women have undertaken work
in every industry which has any
bearing on munitions. Outside of the
Machine shops their work is very
largely laboring work, and they have
undertaken laboring in every industry
under the worst possible conditions,
even such conditions as exist in blast
furnaces, acid works, iron and steel
"For the more highly skilled work
on howitzers, airplanes, engines, etc.,
the minister of munitions has had to
help the employers by equipping
training schools. By far the greatest
part of the women on that work
have been trained in the factories
themselves, but the smaller factories
have found considerable difficulty in
doing their own training, and in many
factories there is too little work of
this nature on which women can
gradually acquire skill.
"The ministry has therefore estab
lished two classes of training es
tablishmentstraining schools at
tached to the various technical col
leges that exist in most industrial
centers and factories taken over by
the ministry and equipped as instruc
tional plants. They do actual mu
nitions work in these training es
tablishments. They do not attempt
to give general training, but they give
specialized training on a specific type
$:fmach;ne, and in that way women
acquire a considerable degree of skill
in a period of from six to eight
weeks." New York Times.

ANOTHER KERNEL IN
INCOME TAX NOT
Who Will Settle With Collector
in the "Tax Free" Cove
"What about the provisions of the
income tax law regarding the 'tax free
covenant' in bonds and mortgages,
trust deeds, leases and the like?" asks
Charles S. Elgutter and answers him
self: "That may become one of the dif
ficult nuts to crack in determining
who shall pay the normal tax to the
government in making up the tax re
turn. As you know, not a bond, mort
gage, trust deed or lease of any con
sequence has been drawn within the
past ten years without some kind of
a clause requiring one or the other of
the parties to the contract to assume
the burden of paying some or all
taxes assessed. A railroad or indus

contains a covenant that the interest

I have a matter now up as to
whether a tenant under a lease which
contains a clause making him liable
for all taxes assessed against the
leased property is liable fpr the land
lord's normal tax accruing out of his
income from the rents of that partic

most of these tax free covenants, as
they are called, appear in mortgages,
leases and the like made between the
parties, long before any one ever
thought of a federal income tax.
Whether the mortgagor or the mort

the like, should now assume these
taxes in the particular agreement be

esting question these days to many of
our citizens called upon to fill out

The tremendous increase in the cost
of living in the Ottoman empire and
the loss ot fortunes, as well as the
draining of young men for the armies,
is largely responsible for this.
The average girl beginner's wage is
quoted at $19 a month, where before
the war the men apprentices received

Women Feel Superior
Mary Heaton Vorse has a very sen
sible article in the February Woman'
Home Companion in which she say
some things which every young girl
ought to read. She says in part:
"The spectacle of the superior
young female is a laudable one, but it
is far more tragic than it is laughable,
for nothing so seals the spirit hermet
ically from anything that one may
learn from another than a calm belief
in one's own excellence.
"It is this early belief in woman's
intrinsic moral superiority that is truly
poisonous to any real growth. It
makes it possible for women to be
mischievous tale bearers, but yet never
repeat a malicious remark without the
noble gesture of one performing a
"Feeling superior never yet made
any one superior, but quite the con
trary. Is it not about time to admit
that we are made very much -f the
same materia as our men folks and
to teach this to our young girls that,
while life develops us differently, on
the whole it asks rather more of men?
It is also good to teach girls that the
same thing that develops a .man's
character also develops a woman's
and that while want and overwork
thwart human kind lack of responsibil
ity and idleness breed limited, imper
fect human beings,"
