W. C. A. WILL ASSIST THEM
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.
