Vacation in Fourteen Years

14 years, not even taking time off for
a vacation. During 1917 the judge,
with the exception of one day, was
on the bench in district court hearing
the unending series of legal entanglements.
Judge Troup made a solemn prom
ise to Mrs. iroup several months
ago. long before war's seriousness had
made its inroads into the vacation
plans of individuals, that he would
"knock off" for a while this summer
and take a little vacation trip with
her to New York and other far-dis
"Now tfiat the time has come," the
judge remarked --Thursday morning,
I feel that Uncle bams problems
are great enough, without my adding
to the difficulties. So I have decided
that a long trip would be unpatriotic
at this time, and my wife agrees with
Judge Troup has therefore given
up his trip to New York, but to ful
fill his promise to Mrs. Troup the
couple will take a short vacation trip
to the Yellowstone Park. They will
leave shortly after the Fourth of July.

GIRLS STATE CASE
Assistant City Attorney Says
He Will File Complaint for
Not Having Licensed
John M. Berger, assistant city at
torney, met with the striking girl
elevator operators in the board of
welfare rooms yesterday.
"The company has not lived up to
its contract with us," declared Merele
Swanson. the spokesman for the oper
ators. "When we went to work they
gave us our choice of working eight
hours at $45 a month or working
nine hours at $50, which they called
boys' pay. We asked for the boys'

us two weeks vacation with pay.

was held out for five months as pay
for their uniforms, and that now the
company refuses to give them their
uniforms. "They told me I had nerve
to ask for mine," said Pearl Mc
Claren, "and I told them that when
I had paid for a thing I didn't think
it took much nerve to claim it."
When the girls were first employed
there was a starter, who took the re
sponsibility of getting the cars prop
erly spaced and timed. That when he
left the girls asked that his pay be
divided between them to make up for
the extra responsibility thus placed
on them, and that it was the refusal
of this request that caused them to
"It would be different if we were
fired," said Miss Swanson, "because
if we were not giving satisfaction
we wouldn't expect them to keep us,
but we know that we were doing our

called me up at my home since we
left and and told me that conditions
down there are unendurable and have
tried to get us to come back. They
