"Now there is a lot of waste In

WASHINGTON, Feb. 28. A spe

commission was held today to hear
Miss Pauline Coldmark. hiter-in-lavv
of Associate Justice llrandies, tell
of the employment of women on rail
toads. She gave figures to show
that women are being hired in in
creasing numbers for heavy work,
her statement contradicting in some

MIfs Goldmark appeared a rep
resentative of the Consumer's league
of New York and other organizations
Her testimony was given Informally
and will not be included in the rec
ord until she has incorporated it in
a formal statement. Women were
first employed In any numbers by
the railroads about a year ago, Mls
Goldmark said, at the Instance of
the railroad war board. They were
put on the clerical position exerl
inentally, but their use has been ex
tended until now they are in tb.3
freight yardt, section gangs, shopa
and roundhouses. While much of
the work Is suitable ot them, many
occupations Involve: heavy physical

work out of doors infill condition

' "Inf order that ther hall'be no
wasteful nse of labor and to reduce
the turnover." she recommended, "H
js Important to make an .Investiga
tion and standardise the . work for
which women may be employed be

Miss Goldmark declared while, the
women were lifting weights as much
as .o pounds in work as drill press
"Are women used in England in
the mme occupations or In har.er
work?" asked Secretary Lane, chair
man of the commission.
"They are used In "England In the
operation cf. street railway servlc?
and also as. station' agents and in
ether work In connection with the
operations of trains and In shop.''
Miss Goldmark said. She added that
tbe English were using Increasing
care to provide mechanical equip
ment for relieving tbe women from
lifting heavy weights.
She told of Investigating condi
tions at a factory In Zanesville. Ohio,
where many women are employed.
Hun! J,alMr Done.
"The majority of women at this
plant," she said, "are engaged in
hard labor, such as loading erap
iron, sorting scrap Iron, wheeling
iron in wheel barrows, etc. The
women loading scrap ironand sori
mg the same, work in the yards,
with no protection from Intense rays
ofj sun or weather. These women
wear overalls and large brim hats.
They hand Iron up from the ground
to others In the cars, who pile. The
hours are nine hours n day, T4 hours
a week, with one half hour for
lunch; wages 20 cents an hour and
$1.50 deducted each month for re
lief purposes. Men are -given 21
cents an hour for labor of the sam?
She said a recommendation had
leen made that the railroads ob
serve the labor laws In protection
of women, but that thee laws did
not cover many occupations.
"For Instance there is no law af
fecting women employed on the
street cars, and therefore, it 1 nec
essary this year to put In a bill for
their benefit." said Miss Goldmark.
"There Is great confusion as to
the claaification of women work
ing on the railroad! for in Minne
sota the law applies? to all establish
ments where power driven machine
are used, yet rallrjDads claim that
the round houses are not under the
law. In New York state, the shops
are considered under the federal law
Here are burled the first Americans to be killed in action In France. The censor has not -permitted
their names nor the location of the graves. They are encircled by;a mere barb wire fence. In tbe fore

but the roundhouses where the wo
