That way the laundry could actually get aromid to few more families who are greatly in need of laundry service. There are tots of operations in the laundry where it takes as much (or nearly as much) time to handle .» small bundle as for a large one. For example-- the pick-Dp and delivery, the weighing/tie listing, the sorting for separate washing according to kind and color-- even in the drying the laundry handles YOUR family as a separate unit, · I say-- if you have a small bundle -- send every two weeks-- NOT every week. If we all .do. this, we will ALL get better service. --Ami Kat Sponsored TO NEW STATION--Pvt. Verna M..

Memberships Sought FromNation "Much -of the responsibility for world peace rests squarely on the shoulders of women, who today have the majority of the, nation's voting power--and that is why mobilization of this woman power is so urgent and vitally important,'Mrs. Norman DeR. Whitehouse, national chairman of the women's action committee for victory and lasting peace, declared Monday in opening a nation-wide recruiting drive. ' The drive, which will last 3 months, opened in New York City, with a luncheon meeting at the' Hotel Astor, and with meetings in other key cities throughout the country. Its objective is to enroll as direct and active members in the women's action committee for victory and lasting peace at least 1 per cent o£ the 35 million women in the United States--or 350 000 women. ^The^ast time world peace was sabotaged women may have had an excuse for their failure to act," Mrs. Whitehouse said, "but they have none now. In 1919, when our country refused to live up. to its obligations and become a member of the league of nations, women suffrage had not yet been granted. Women could have no direct voice in electing the representatives who would shape the destinies of their country. But today their voting power is greater than that of men. - . "We must make no mistake-this may be our last chance. If the peace to-come should fail, there may be no next time. The V3s, V4s and V5s of the next war could annihilate civilization. "The coming months will be with congressional discussion on the Dumbarton Oaks proposals and later on the completed draft of the united nations organizations. These decisions will affect the future of the whole world. We believe that ·America must do its part in the family of nations to -preserve peace. "The Women's Action Committee has been-organized to supoprt specifically those congressional measures which will lead constructively toward an effective world organization for the prevention of war. One of the chief responsibilities of our active members is to write individually and immediately to senators, congressmen, and government officials upon receiving a "Call to Action." These calls to action are sent out whenever important issues are to be discussed in congress,' and have been issued in the past in support of the reciprocal trade-agreements act the Fulbright resolution, the Bail-Burtbn-Hatch-Hill r e s o l u - tion, and the renewal of lend- lease and several cals were sent at critical stages of the UNRRA appropriation bills. "That this is an effective method has been repeatedly proven by statements made by congressmen themselves on the floor of the house. · Congress represents the people; we, the people intend -to let congress know what we want "Because we are a non-partisan political group, we are able to offer the individual woman her share in the collective influence of American women on our government's foreign policy legislation. Since many non-profit organizations are tax-free and therefore restricted from any political activity, they are unable to supply this opportunity--an opportunity which many of their members would welcome. The seven million women members of the seven national organizations in the women's action committee while supporting tne aims and policies of the organization do. not pay dues, do. not receive literature or instructions directly, and are hot bound to any active participation. * "Our voice is being heard, and we are achieving results. But we need more active members. Our aims for 1945 are as follows: 1. An international organization for the maintenance of peace and security.. 2. A united nations council or planning commission to be set up immediately. 3. The joint use o£ armed forces of United Nations to prevent aggression, promptly. . _ 4. A joint air force, attached to the international organization action in an emergency. · 5. Economic sanctions used only as a first measure against aggression, not, as a substitute for military force. 6. Provision for peaceful change of conditions unjust to any nation, and which threaten world peace. 7. Permanent international bodies for reconstruction and development and for increasing human well-being. S. The international assembly to meet at least-annually. 9. Full emphasis.on the importance of small states. 10.' Continuance of the good neighbor polity. "The time has come for action. One woman alone can do little-but to. the. united .women of our country, fired with a common vision, working together for one purpose, · nothing is impossible." Various types of membership in the women's, action committee for victory and lasting peace are available, Mrs. Whitehouse explained, but a payment of only SI annually entitles a woman to become a general and active member, and to receive literature and calls to action. Included in the literature is a monthly bulletin 'Backlog for Action," which is especially prepared by a research associate of the organization, the comniittee on education BAREBACK DRESS: Claire McCardell's SWIM SUIT NEWS.
