Nine years ago, when the or- j ganbalioti was founded as a kind of county fair to show tlie world what women of the nation could do to make their livings, the majority were making or selling gadgets of one kind or another. This year, however, when the Exposition opens at Ihe Astor Hotel, the outstanding, significant thing is the amazing number ol women who have learned that It pays more lo sell their own ablllly than to make gadgets with their own hands!

The rusa worked Seeing, a ship burning out at sea, and with their wireless cracking nut a .distress signal, the Coast Guard '.Tessels ;dashed to the aid of the flaming ship Thej- circled it, sear.-hed the nearby waters for possible survivors. In the meantime. of course, the rum-runners had footed it for their various landing places along shore. This* incident,' frequently told }n fit. Herr?, is rpJy one of hundreds of. similar clashes between • .the rum fleel and the Coast Guard. The rum runners ^ generally express' .a lively regard for the' abll- Itv .and seamanship of the Coast Guard.- .They complain, of course, r'f alleged high-handed methods of 'operation, such as capturing rum ships when outside the legal .limit, and firing oh' the rum ships without cnuro and without warn ing. '.' Rum Fleet Works in Hravy ' Weather During those periods when heavy fogs prevail, or on dark and "mcpnJoss nights, all of the rum fleet from St. Pierre is^on the Job. ed vessels. They have found that t is only the "big fellows" who can take care of them. Probably no men ' scan the weather in/ the charts world more anxiously than the men who di rect the destinies of the rum syndicates. With bad weather K- pried, cables multiply In St. Pierre, cargoes are rushed aboard, and the rum fleet puts to sea, frequently with whistles blowing. Oil their way down the coast the rum bats are in clcse touch with their shore forces through unlicensed radio sending stations on shore. These stations, sending their messages in code, dlrict the movement of the boaU. Without these stations the rum fleet would b? helpless. There has been and still continues a lively battle between the rum boats and the Coast Guard In eavesdropping on the other's wireless messages. Both sides change their codes frequently. Many unlicensed shore stations have been raided thorities.' Within by federal the past few weeks alone two of them liave been seized, one In Massachusetts and ono In New York. Strictly .'•waking the operations of these unlicensed stations is no affair of the Coast Guard. It is an offense which comes under the jurisdiction of the Department of Ccmmerce." Directed iy Wireless from Shore Stations For many months one of the largest wireless stations giving directions to th.3 rum fleet was lo cated In a small town on tho Con- npcticul scacoast. The syndicate which operated it discontinued il recently. Tlie stations are moved as frequently as possible. The majority of the men, on the rum boats are Canadians and French. Surprisingly few American crew, and It hasn't been a particularly siKYesrfu! one. Til? boats sail under Canadian French and British registry, though there are a few of other nationalities In the harbor at times.
