Y. W. C. A. WILL ASSIST THEM
_______________

If Sufficient Number Apply It Will
Aid Working Women.

______

       How working women are to live when with increasing rents and higher cost of necessities their meager incomes are swallowed up without provision being made for other expenses was the problem laid before the business meeting of the Young Women's Christian Association yesterday. It was the longest session on record, and many important subjects were presented.

       As to the working women, it was decided that if a sufficient number registered at the association office, saying that they would soon have to face this dilemma, the directors would then take up the matter in all earnestness. In this connection Miss Pritchard, of the People's Institute, asked for the appointment of a committee to help her in improving the conditions surrounding the working girls of the North End.

       This afternoon at 3 o'clock the association will hold an adjourned meeting at the Exposition grounds to witness the breaking of the ground for the Fair headquarters building.
