It shows there a great many things v/hich bdys'^and girls do"v7hen th^y go into the business v/orl^. For ate example there v/ere four hundred and*"eighty three girls, and one hundr^'d and seVentjT'six^'of these ie^trned to be secretaries^ One^'hundred and sixty seven learned to be'^teachers^ This fitl^ws that three fourths of'the girls either want to be secret* taries or teachers. Many of them do hot "Knov all the occupations there are whi^Jh might please'" them more'^^than being secretaries or teachers.""

The girls' plan won and is printed here^ We should have a nation wide business i'o^ "the benefit of the unemployed men so that all men could have a chance to work. If the factories run down, the owners should build them up out of tlietr own personal money* To avoid over-production we should plan at the beginning of each season how m:^ch goods v/e should produce". We should have a reduction in Irariff. The owner should know where he is going to se^l his goods, and how much he will sell', before he makes it. Distribute work equally throughout the year to avoid unemployment. ORIGINAL CARTOON The original cartoon on the following page was drawn by Doris Shultes-. S S Di^ Hi Out H r" 2) I » Vv.
