TEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE __ -r^-r^T^-r^ A -_, -- , . . FEBRUARY 26 · 193A LITERATURE DEPARTMENT WILL HEAR MINNEAPOLITAN 4,285 Women of Iowa Work for Project! CWA Demobilization Plan ned With Consideration for Feminine Needy. By RUBY A. BLACK. Globe-Gazette Washlngon Bureau. WASHINGTON, Feb. 26.--Of the 272,251 women working on civil works projects throughout the country early in February, 4,285 were employed in Iowa. ·' In orders for the demobilization of the CWA, now underway, Federal Civil Works Administrator Harry L. Hopkins, has stressed the necessity for making sure that needy women receive equal consideration with needy men. Since the projects for women were rather slow In getting under way and since' women ' have never been given a large share in the program, the demobilization on their projects may be slower than of the men workers. To Continue Work. Mrs. Ellen Woodward, director of women's work, states that "In many states and communities, the practical need of projects which have been developed to meet this emergency has been so well shown that there is now a decided sentiment to continue them with private or public funds after May 1, the end of the CWA program." Miss June Hamm is Iowa-director of Women's work projects. Women have worked at almost every kind of a job under the CWA, from making window boxes for public buildings and weeding public golf courses to cataloging fossils and checking up on divorced fathers who do not care for children in relief families. . Some of the more interesting or unusual projects which have given Jobs to women are spinning, and weaving, making baby bootees out of old felt hats, making fish nets for fishermen on storm ravaged coasts, making soap, giving barber Service to families on relief, organizing arts and handcraft shops, aid- fng with the federal typhus control program, conducting camps for undernourished children, codifying welfare laws, doing home visiting for the juvenile courts, acting as Interpreters for foreign-speaking families on relief and for juvenile courts, acting as house mothers In ,- overcrowded: children's homes, conducting music,' drama: and athletic recreation programs and working with little theaters. Wide Variation. Women have chopped trees and made posts and built fences around county cemeteries. They have collected the folklore and folk songs of America. They have planted strawberry beds and killed dandelion roots. They have even collected garbage and helped with the eradication of predatory animals. And they havo done the more usual jobs of sewing, cooking, canning, nursing and clerical work. · Many have taught, but the teachers are not included In the totals given for the country or for Iowa. --*-WASHINGTON LUNCHEON HELD BY LADIES' AID · Members of division 9 of the Methodist Ladles' aid met for a Washington luncheon at the home of Mrs. F.
