Vice President Wallace Supports BATH, COURTESY OF Y. W. C. A.--"Can't a guy have any privacy in this woman's club?" protests 6 months old Eddy Main, son of Pvt and Mrs. Richard Main from Hagerstown, Md. Baby Eddy is getting the "business" in the USD club at New Brunswick, N. J. This bath stuff may be all right for some, but Eddy obviously would like to be rescued from such nonsense. Mother Main, on the other hand, seems pretty pleased to have such a swell place in which to care for her first-born. Service men's x wives all over the country, who are living in strange and crowded communities, find the baby facilities in the service clubs operated by the national Y. W. C. A. a god-send. They attend classes in pre-natal and post-natal care, conducted by volunteers, where they learn everything from the proper temperature for Junior's bath to feeding him soft bread and mashed potatoes when he swallows his first safety-pin. Knowing that someone keeps an eye on their families' is a boon to the morale of service men. 'SOCIAL CALENDAR * MONDAY Odd Fellows-- Indowmcnt committee- *· L °- °- F - hal1 8, I. O. O.

Democratic Principles Demand Law Vice President Wallace has announced his full support of the equal rights amendment now pending in the senate, as a measure demanded by fhe principles of democratic government. In a letter to Mrs. Emma Guffey Miller, member of the democratic national committee for Pennsylvania and joint congressional chairman of the National Woman's party, the vice president declared that "the surest method to eradicate the many discriminations a n d injustices practiced against women, is to pass the equal rights amendment." The letter of the vice president read in full: "Mrs. Emma Guffey Miller "Member for Pennsylvania, Democratic. National Committee "Washington, D. C "Dear Mrs. Miller: % "The first organized movement in the history of the world to free women from their age old shackles began in our own country almost 100 years ago when a little group of undaunted women met at Seneca Falls, N Y and drafted a 'Declaration, of Principles,' which has guided the movement in. this country ever since.

Every man and woman should have an equal right to earn a living; to control their earnings and women should be freed from governmental restraints and handicaps, which now limit their wages and "opportunities for advancement. The surest method to eradicate the many discriminations and injustices practiced against women is to pass the equal rights amendment and thus complete the great movement for freedom begun at Seneca Falls in 1848. "However much the opponents of this amendment may fear some possible temporary disadvantage to some women, may I suggest that in the end "all such disadvantages, if. they exist, .weigh little beside the greater advantage of inner freedom which will come for all women when real-'Equality is established. "Sincerely yours, V "H. A. Wallace.'\ In press interviews at .the Woman's party headquarters Mrs Miller said' with regard to the vice president's declaration: "The vice president's statement m support of equality and 'justice for American women will tremendously encourage the women of this country. If 'women are to carry on when peace comes in helping to build a new world based on human- freedom and equality, they must themselves be free, equal and responsible citizens of our democracy. We rejoice in this declaration by the vice president of the U n i t e d States in support of equality of rights for all Americans regardless of sex." -- o -Program Presented by Greek School Children at Church Pupils of the Greek Orthodox church school presented a program at the church parlors Sunday evening, honoring the "Three Saints."
