'THEIR BIT.' SAYS
Condemns Sociat Leaders Who
Spend Few Hours Working
Each Week "Because It
Is in Fashion."
(By Anoelated Preat.)
New York, March 3. American
women "are not doing their duty by
their country but are wasting time in
many effectual forms of war work,"
Dr. Henry Noble MacCracken, presi
dent of Vassar college, said in a state
ment tonight announcing that a mass
meeting for college women will, be
held here next Friday to appeal to
them to become trained nurses for
"urgent military and public health
What he termed the willingness of
many American women to go "over
there" as unskilled nurses of "futile
social workers" and "inflict upon their
brothers, and the women and children
of their allies the lamentable efforts of
their ignorance," was condemned in
Dr. MacCracken's statment.
Work is Fashion.
"The volunteer organizations" he
said "are full of women who go to
work rooms, not from patriotic in
stinct, but because it is the fashion,
and they have never been trained to
obey or to work under supervision.
for every volunteer who is willing to
sacrifice her whole life scheme in
definitely for the sake of her country
there are 10,000 who are willing to
give an hour a week of volunteer
service with no real training, and of
precious iittle value.
The one great vital need if a
nation at war is health and the two
vital possessions, are, therefore, ed
ucation for health standards and
nursing for preventive and remedial
measures. Both professions need
leaders in unlimited numbers."
Dr. MacCracken estimates that
20,000 trained nurses will be needed
for the American forces in France
before January 1919.

SENATE FORCES WAR
BILL OYER FOR WEEK
Unexpected Opposition Blocks
Consideration, Only One
Amendment Being Dis
Washington, March 3. Unexpected
opposition to the administration
measure to establish a war finance
corporation have arisen in the senate
thwarting leaders plans for its pas
sage and forcing the bill over until
the coming week.
Final enactment of the measure
possibly with material modifications
was not believed by leaders to be en
dangered. The opposition centered
chiefly on the proposal for licensing
by a "capital issues committee" of
security issues of $100,000 and more.
No Progress Made.
Virtually no progress was made on
the bill today. Only one minor
amendment was disposed of and that
extending the provision for direct
loans to persons as well as corpora
tions was accepted by Senator Sim
mons, in charge of the bill when
members of the banking committee
and others insisted that farmers and
small business men, as well as capi
talists and large corporations, should
be allowed to receive direct advances
from the corporation.
Senator Hardwick, democrat, to
day came out by vigorous opposition
to the legislation. He declared it was
unnecessary and would confer no
great powers over American industry
to a few men. The measure, he as
serted, would create machinery simi
lar to the Aldrich-Vreefand "central
bank" plan but with vastly more ar
Would Withhold Power.
Disapproval of the securities licens
ing plan was expressed by some sen
ators, who believe the present volun
tary committee, co-operating withthi
Treasury department, would answer
the purpose, while Senator Smith of
Michigan, republican, opposed con
ferring upon the secretary of the
treasury the enormous power which
he said the bill authorized. He sug
gested that the federal reserve act be
amended so as to place these powers
in the hands of the twelve reserve
Senator Simmons staunchly de
fended the mtasure and declared that
the federal reserve system cannot
adequately rope with financial needs
of American industry in view of the
virtual commandeering of the money
market by the government.
