Women Do Their Iht, War'is no longer a mini's game. Men slill march onto battlefields and fn'0 gims and fly planes—but that's about its far as their exclusive rights lo war go days. In this era of mechanized mid technological warfare, the battle is only the manifestation of the real war work carried on at hone. The present responsibilities shouldered by the distal!' portion of the population i» both Franco and Britain far exceed (hose carried by women in tlin struggle of 19M-18; although, even then, war had cea.sed to be ji job for f-oldiers alone. Before the World War, there were only 30 women lo' every 100 men employed in England. In J018, I'emain workers had picked up HO many jobs* left by soldiers that the ratio had risen to 5G. women per 100 men. Last year, England had '12 women for every 100 men workers. II is estimated lluit when the war gels into full swing and men now in factories virc called to the colors, Ihere •will be 85 women for every 100 men working in England. Of the 22,(i30,000 jobs; 10,449,000 will be filled by female workers. : ; France today has 280,000 women workers busy in • its munitions industry. -Many • of them are wives of soldiers who never before had a job, but Who have taken over their husbands' places in (he factories. Some arc dressmakers and seamstresses, and others have been ' garnered from, -industries that have suffered from decreased activity as a result of the war. Wherever possible, France is working wives only half a day to permit them to spend the remaining Lime caring for their households. Those women have not merely been shifted from OUR field to another; they have been giveu additional duties while their chores as housewives remain the same. War in the modern stylo is really fought at home. II is f;u- behind the lines where material must be produced for 'armies, where food must, be processed and apportioned, where clothes must be made, where morale must be maintained. The moment a national economy wavers in wartime, a nation is lost. ' Tho mass of people never veallv wants war. It is caught ,,p ;„ Uie ,,.,'. rarie and finds no escape. It is willing to turn the tables on its leaders whenever a campaign becomes shaky. Whenever war- hits these days, everyone is in il—from the oldest patriarch down. And a 'bomb dropped from the sky has no more respect for a lady _than it h as for a 10-story building. OUT OUR WAY Books—21 a Day Don't berate yourself if someone mentions a book you haven't read. There are lots of others who haven't read it, and even the most avid bookworm would have to he super-natural la keep up with Ihe regular deluge of literary fodder that pours from the presses. Last year, 7003 books were published in this country. U you managed to dust off an average of live volumes a week, you did pretty well; yet, you just scratched the surface. You still missed 7733 of the 7993 hooks circulated. To cover them all, you would have lo read more than 21 books each day, You may as well reconcile yourself to the fact Unit it's impossible for anyone lo keep up with the world today. The best you can hope for is that you won't fall too far behind. /'or a Rainy Day Most people probably shared vicariously with Mrs. William E. Borah the pang of comfort she must have full when she opened .the safety deposit box of her late husband and dug hoi hand into $207,000 iu cash and government bonds. The discovery was unexpected. Mrs. Borah was even thon planning to abandon her apartment and move to more modest quarters as an economy measure. In a small way, anyone who has cvt-r run across a dollar bill in an abandoned vest will know how Mrs. Borah fell. The savings were fund.s the talc senator liad evidently been storing away for a long time, lo provide for his widow after his dealhh. , The fund seems even more remarkable in the light of Senator Borah's weakness for private philanthropies. It was well known that he never turned away anyone who needed help, with the result that he paid out vast sums lo imligeiits.

CHAPTER IX — Mike Donovan heard hi son was in jail, he droppei Jiito ths nearest chair. i( "H's all right," he told Ling •Just give me a moment to ge hold of myself." The Chinese servant scurried of] tor a glass of. brandy. Mik thought, aloud as he sipped il 'Doesn't matter what ihe lad's it for, we've got to get him ou quickly and quietly." He handed the empty glass to Ling. "It isn't Ihe first time I've faced (rouble <- all me a taxi." Ung suggested having (he Donovan chaufteur bring the car, bu Mike shook his head. "No. 1 don't want anyone to know about this. I'm not even goin' to call me lawyer till I learn the trouble." The phone rang as he stepped toward the door. "For you, sir," Ling said. "Missy "Hello, Lynda." Mike tried to be cheerful. "Dan's all right. He's just been at a friend's house. He'll call you when he gets home Goodby." Directing the taxi driver to drop him on the corner of Pearl and Wall slreels, he settled back in Ihe cab. The man might be a local fellow. He wasn't going to have him gossiping around the neighborhood about taking old Donovan to a police station. * * JT was after 9 when Ihe cab deposited him a block from his destination. Mike knew the dis- Inct belter than any other section of New York. His office was only a square from the First Precinct police station. His ships were berthed at South street just a Xeu mocks above Ihe barge terminal. A sharp wind cut his lace. He jammed his old-fashioned square black derby tight on his head. Rain again tomorrow, he Ihought. He wondered where the Katherine «'as now. He had told the captain lo bring the Donovan houseboat «P by easy stages to New York. Maybe Kalie was seasick. As his v.-'.'e came lo his mind he pictured ir:er anguish it she knew their boy was in jail. His own misery increased as the green lights of the First Precinct brought him sharply back lo reality. Fiercely, he shoved Uie police station rloor oper and marched up to the high desk. "I'd like to see my boy." The police sergeant looked up And who might you be?" he in quired mildly. "Michael Donovan. Here's m> card." Respectfully, Uie police oflice: reached for the square ot whili Paper. The name of Donovan wai powerful along l| le waterfront Mikes money and Influence were well known. At sound of Mike 1 voice detectives and policemen turned Inquisitive heads. Slowly he sergeant ran his finger through the day book. "Daniel Donovan and Tommy Kyan picked up for disturbing th peace at 8 p. m. on Pier 6 b Patrolman Jeremiah McGuire" Closing (he book, lie looked down at Mike through steel- rimmed spectacles. "Your boy'; gone to night court, Mr. Donovan Put into plain English, ho was pinched for fighlin' on the bargi E»er. If ye hustle, ye might ge up in time to hear him state his case. The address is 314 West 5411 street." "Who won fhat fight!" "Neither side." The sergeant's gray eyes twinkled. "Patrolman WcGuire interfered." * * + Ihe night court Mike was told Dan and Tommy Ryan and a wncli ol drunks had arrived in he patrol wagon from the OU! Slip station house half an hour earlier. The court attendant jerked a thumb toward the wire netting •vhich enclosed the benches where he prisoners sat. "I guess your boy s there now." Mike stared at the rag, tag, and wbtail assortment of human bc- ngs. Fine company for his son o be in! His relief was rapidly urnmg into anger. -Silting in a rent row bench, ho beat a furious attoo on the floor with his cane. Dan, his head-in his hands, had not seen him. At the friendly ad•ice of the court attendant, Mike did not call Ms lawyer. "Belter wait. The judge may dismiss the case. Neither party ooks as it they'd like to continue he fight," the man advised. "If •ou get a lawyer, you're liable lo nake a mountain out of a mole- n'll." The attendant ran an eye down he complaints the policemen had handed in. "You don't happen to THE Mike Donovan, do you?" Mike nodded, gruffly pleased. Then lie low. The reporters will )lay this up if they find- you're ere. Quiet, the judge is calling or them now." He moved toward he bar. ^ Mike shifted restlessly. "Well, 'ft have tagged meself a liar," he -numbled to himself, "if I'd said 10 day would ever come when I didn't know me own son. I say it now." He stared as Dan was broi before t!ie judge, left eye do a i'ash on Ms forehead, ano on his cheek, and a large It on his chin. The blood had clo and dried. His white shirt'- torn and dirty, his tie gone a coat sleeve had been ripped 1 Unable lo stand it, Mike jum' up. "Dannie!" i "Oh, Dad," Dan cried as ! father hurried forward. "Whi mess I've got you inlo! But' not through with this sap y' Ho clenched his fists. All eyes in the crosvded d wcro on the pair.

"I'm afraid you're nol as in' of a fighter as your old man v Dannie." Mike shook his head stared at Tommy's apparently > damaged (ace. "This boy kn! how to take care of himself.')

"Case dismissed. Next." i ' t t * i WHILE Hie judge was heaii ?T the sioiy o£ ihe fight, BlJ La Porte had slipped into r courtroom. At Ihe words, "C dismissed," she started forw; Just as she was about to t: Dan's arm, his-father spoke. "Well, my boy, we'll let ihe pleasant past bury itself and t our faces -toward a happier ;ure." He chuckled. "After t wire of yours, congratulations in order." Marie's face paled. She hat Jremonilion of the words to low. Each one etched itself se rately on her mind. "Your mother joins me. !
