LAWS HIP WASHINGTON. <U.E>—Mor« extensive regulation! governing th* welfare of women workers by state governments It: Indicated by a report of labor legislation during the six month period ended July 30, prepared by the Federal Womea'i bureau uuder the direction of Sec- I retary of Labor Francis Perkins. New labor laws for women, or amendments to exacting laws, were passed by at k-ast 14 staU legislatures, the bureau reports, with seven states setting machinery for creation of minimum wages. Six of these states, Kew York, New Jersey, New Hampshire, Con necticiit, Ohio, and Illinois passed laws similar in alj essential points, patterning them after the model law advocated by the National Consumers league, while the seventh, Utah, passed a bill Modeled after the one in effect in California. Two amendments to th% existing Massachusetts law governing minimum wages for women were passed, both making the law more effective and more easily enforced. A minimum wage bill failed of passage in Rhode Island, but a legislative committee was set up to investigate working conditions and devise a bill for presentation to the next legislature. Changes in maximum hour laws for women were effected in six states. A legal maximum of eight hours per day and 48 hours per week was created in New Mexico snd Wyoming for women workers, while Conne -ticut, Minnesota, North Carolina and Texas made various changes in existinng statutes.

CCC BATTLES FOREST SAN FRANCISCO, <U.E)— A $200 cash present to a Citizens Conservation Corps for saving a home during a forest fire drew attention to accomplishments of corps members in California woods this season. Leaders of the citizen-woodsmen pointed proudly to statistics which showed California had 17,698 forest fires last year and only 3,981 in the same territory so far in 19S3. The corps had many thrilling experiences as tliey fought stubborn blazes. .. One group of 400 were trapped by a sudden shift in the wind in the Monterey district Immediately they sought an open area which the flames hadn't reached With red-hot sparks smouldering in their clothing and oppressive heat searing their hands and faces, they "dug in." In a short apace of time they had dug, a pit in which they buried themselves under dirt until the fire passed over, A corps at San Pedro had a similar experience. Two companies fron. Ohio fought a fire on Mt Lassen for more than a week. Many lost their clothing. One boy reported having had four pairs of shoes burned off his feet The corps members were given careful training in forest fire fighting when they came to this area.
