Some Ethical Gains through Legislation

By FLORENCE KELLEY, Secretary of the National Consumers’ League

This interesting volume has grown out of the author’s experience in philanthropic work in Chicago and New York, and her service for the State of Illinois and for the Federal Government in investigating the circumstances of the poorer classes, and conditions in various trades.

     The value of the work lies in information gathered at close
     range in a long association with, and effort to improve the
     condition of, the very poor.

Wage-Earning Women

By ANNIE MARION MACLEAN, Professor of Sociology in Adelphi College

“This book needed to be written.  Society has to be reminded that the prime function of women must ever be the perpetuation of the race.  It can be so reminded only by a startling presentation of the woman who is ‘speeded up’ on a machine, the woman who breaks records in packing prunes or picking hops, the woman who outdoes all others in vamping shoes or spooling cotton....  The chapters give glimpses of women wage-earners as they toil in different parts of the country.  The author visited the shoeshops, and the paper, cotton, and woollen mills of New England, the department stores of Chicago, the garment-makers’ homes in New York, the silk mills and potteries of New Jersey, the fruit farms of California, the coal fields of Pennsylvania, and the hop industries of Oregon.  The author calls for legislation regardless of constitutional quibble, for a shorter work-day, a higher wage, the establishment of residential clubs, the closer cooeperation between existing organizations for industrial betterment.”—­Boston Advertiser.
