Ryan, president of the International Longshoremen's Association, to a request that the federation be allowed to participate' in efforts to settle the Gulf of Mexico longshoremen's strike.

Five commissioners are authorized by 'the act, two to represent employees, one to represent retail merchants, one to represent larger employers and one to represent the public. John F.

"Among the white people here, practically the only opportunities for our girls are domestic work. We have more, demands for mother's helpers than we can fill. But our girls are educated and ambitious. We have found their best chances lie among their own people hence an additional use for the lessons in Chinese etiquette and language. Our graduates include nurses, doctors, teachers and women in business life, working among the Chinese in America HOW HOME BEGAN The idea of the Ming Quong Home was born, of the discovery that our State orphanages were reluctant to accept Chinese' children and most Chinese have large. fam ilies of their own and hence do not care to adopt 'additional members. The Board of National Missions of the Presbyterian Church assumed th'e responsibility of taking in the girl waifar strandecLin a strange landand with no relative to care for tfiem, in.v America" or China. 1 The 20th anniversary of the Home was-ccelebrated with Chinese program last week-end.
