Hayden, state chairman of the National Woman's party, an organization devoted to securing the adoption of an "Equal Rights" amendment to the federal constitution, has received a letter from Ella M. Sherwin, New York City, corresponding secretary of the Industrial Women's League for Equality, explaining the status of the proposed legislation and requesting Mrs. Hayden to work for membership in the party as the most effective means of supporting the amendment. . 'She says "The principal opposition to the Equal Rights amendment is based on the fallacy that discriminatory labor laws regulating women's work but not men's are:- 1. Desirable; 2. Will be inoperative immediately upon the passage of the amendment. We feel that the most effective way for National Woman's party members to support the amendment at this time is to give all possible aid in building our organization. "Officers of the A. F. of L. and C. I. O. -have no mandate from members to oppose the amendment. They simply take it upon themselves to continue the old A. F. of L. policy of the end of the 19th and start of the 20th centuries to recommend special laws for women. ' , "It is our job to call the attention of the rank and file of both labor organizations to the fact that the policy of the horse and buggy era is out of date and that equality of rights nnder all laws MKS.

Daughters of Union Veterans will meet at Legion hall Monday evening'for regular work and to make plans for the year. Mrs. C. C. Locke has returned to her home in Albert Lea, Women Make 2,500 Surgical Dressings Clear Lake -- A group of 26 w o m e n folded 2,500 surgical dressings in the-Red Cross workroom Wednesday afternoon. This leaves 2,000 of the 9,000'quota received last" week yet to, be finished. Mrs. H. N. Halvorson, production chairman, announces that 10,000 2 by 2 inch dressings have been received and that work-on them will. begin as soon as the others are completed. Mrs. Hal- yorsoh hopes that, with a good turnout'each day, the new quota may be finished next week. The Bed Cross workroom is open each Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock and all women 'of Clear Lake who can possibly do so are urged 'to come and help get the dressings made in record time, Mrs. Halvorson said. is now essential. "Will you pass the word along ·to other members of the National Woman's party and to any other interested parties in your state that we will welcome their aid?" The Equal Rights amendment referred to by Miss Sherwin reads: "Equality of rights under .the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any state on account of sex." It is explained that under existing "protective legislation" for women in various states, men workers "scab" on women workers by taking jobs at lower wages than the rate set by law for women and at longer'hours than the maximum hours'set for women. This is NOT because men want to be unfair but because the state has neglected to extend its protection to men. ~t . · " ".The 'protective laws' are now in abeyance because of. the war," Miss Sherwin wrote. "If they, are permitted to come into effect again at the end of the war, women by the thousands will be displaced by men, just as they have been in the past whenever a new protective law has been enacted. ' "The Equal Rights amendment Is the instrument through which American women can obtain the right to share equally with men in the right to a job and American men can share equally with women in protection against low wages and long hours of work. It is the duty and the privilege of American ,working people to-adopt all necessary measures to humanize our industrial setup. The Equal Rights amendment will insure the protection of a Fair Labor Practices act to all workers in all industries." Members of the party are being asked to send letters to their senators and representatives in Washington, D. C.,' urging them to vote favorably on the proposed amendment which is soon presented to the current congress.

Shoeman Speaks to "Safety" WLB DECISIONS RULED BINDING Ward Case Had No · Bearing on Matter Chicago, VP)--Decisions of the war fabor board on wage adjustments "are' binding," Chairman Edgar L. Warren of the sixth regional WLB reported Thursday, despite court rulings that hoard PROMOTED IN ITALV--Ken- neth C. Rish, son of Mrs. Emma BUh, 702 S. Oak street, Clear Lake, has recently been promoted from the rank of private first class to that of .corporal,, it was announced by the war department Wednesday. CpL Rish is * squad leader in Lt. Gen. Mark W. Clarke's 5th army in the 85th, "Coster 1 ; division. Be was awarded the bronze star for heroic achievement in action on Oct. 1, 1911, in Italy. directives are only advisory. Warren said that since the Montgomery Ward decision in federal court "some employers" had informed the board that "they no longer regard WLB regulations stabilizing wages as binding." "The court's finding that WLB orders are advisory applies only in disputes between labor 'and management on issues other than wage stabilization. Rulings of the board on wage adjustments are binding and adjustments may not e made without WLB approval," he said. Warren said the WLB authority over wages is embodied in the war stabilization act b£ 1942, which was not involved in the Ward case. Issues in the latter were presiden- :ial seizure powers, the Smith- Connally war labor disputes act, and the war powers act. "' meantime the government made its first move for an appeal from Judge Philip L. Sullivan's decision holding that President Roosevelt lacked power to seize the mail order house properties. A transcript of the records was filed with the clerk of the district court for certification to the U. S. circuit court of appeals. Gov- ernment'attorneys have indicated they may ask the appeals court for a writ o£ certiorari. to''carry the i case directly to the United States 1 supreme court.
