WEDNESDAY, JANUARY, 29;, Patriots In Overalls BLYTTTEVTLLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Smart Slack Suits Not So Ponular Nowadays In Wartime England By ft OS KITE HAftGROVK i •^ Servifff Ciuji" Correspond tiTTi LONDON.-K was fy n . while it lasted — but ihe helpless, party- Joviug little ftutiepie is ubou: >is welcome as an incendiary bomb on [he English .scene toriay. "Good-time Girls," they civil them —or "Slackens i-j Slacks." Minister o'f Labor Bovin mav have been thinking or them—the thousands of perfectly healthy Englishwomen shirking 'their war q responsibility—when he Issued his drastic decree drafting male and female labor alike for Britain's de- lense needs. | You can see them in any ol* the .smarter sheltered areas, " weariny either expensive tweeds or per-' J'ectly tailored slacks, bri.Kht oolo -sweaters marching ' the ubiquitous ; tyrban and riding gloves. Thej Good-time Girl seldom walks, sometimes rides a brand-new bicycle, cut usually drives her car into the marketplace or down the High Street, when she doesn't desultorily shop for a lipstick or the illustrated papers astride n horse. a cigarette dan«ling from her lips SHOW CALLOUS DISREGARD Swapping bomb risks in "bhtz zones for golf, followed by cocktail parties, bridge and an evening at the local "nub" playing darts, the war scarcely exists for the Good- time Girl, save perhaps for her presence at- some charity "do" where local celebrities meet! While only an infinitesimal number of women have responded to the count-y's call for women work- f'$. these self-styled evacuees are by >?no\v most unwelcome guests whether they are staying in expensive hotels or have rented large country mansions, in hundreds of provincial towns and country districts. A welfare worker recently returned from a tour of the move expensive evacuation districts stated t,hat "there are still thousands of women showing a callous disregard and indifference to the war eefforc. They are making no sacrifices. COVERALLS, NOT SLACKS" "Yet, other girls- in the same areas; have offered their services ,oing out night ,a,ftei ^ .after , a . harrir-^'ju 's r. 7 slo|ans" as '"Go' To" Tt or Gei'but" .and "Overalls, Not Slacks" are besinnlhe: heaid concurrent with renewed appeals for A. "R..-P. volunteers, g^bi'lanc? drivers-, nurses and '•'first-aid squads. The only alternativee • looks like conscription • of female labor in some form or other, which will absorb some, if not all. of these "teaparty evacuees." Opoort-unities- are not lacking in London for women who want to work. Shorthand typists and efficient secretaries and good clerks or all sort* n re'at-a premium today. The advertisement columns of fl>e newspapers have long lists of vacancies. Many employers are offering, not only ' substantially increased- salaries, but such enticements as shorter working hours and sometimes even transportation to andifrom the office. Office cleaners are being tempted with the ball of bed and breakfast in the firm's underground shelter for a 48-hour week.
