C.—Wanted: One pin-up girl to filamorlze Hie American laundry Industry. Fretful Industry representatives, meeting In Washington with the War Manpower Commission to demand e.^entlal industry claRSlfica- tion, were-unanimous In their appeal. "There's no glamor In the laundry business," moaned the representative of the National Industrial Launderers and Gleaners, George Bulk of Chicago. 'Show the American public n sweater girl making an airplane wing mid yon get factory recruits. But nobody has promoted a laundry worker as a pin-up tjlrll" SKEK HOUSEWIVES The representatives also agreed that, one of the solutions would be to recruit women from homes to work nl least part time in the 7,000 laundries throughout the country that service 12,000.000 families, hundreds of hospitals, hotels, barker and bennty shops. The laundry situation is desperate, they announced, and the entire industry is facing collapse within the next six months unless government aid Is obtained. Some of their problems are specifically: Labor shortage (because job stabilisation came too late in many areas); Inadequate, rationing of machinery and supplies; possible .shortage of soap and dry cleaning fluids; threatened shortage of textiles for towels, work garments and sheets supplied by industrial laundries. Recommendation.? to government, agencies include: replacement of present priority system on laundry machinery with a fair method of allocation; recognition of laundries and linen supply houses as .sanitary services which would give them access to essential materials; recruiting of workers through the United States Employment Service; assurance of frequent, deliveries; coordination of wages, costs and prices that will permit Zaun- dries to continue essential services.
