Buying U. S. Savings Bonds is the
Best way I know to stop worrying about
money. Ami if you persist in worry-
ing, after starting to pile up money the
sore, automatic way, the only worry
you'll have is how best to spend it when
you start ensiling in after ten years.
Your government offers two great
plans, hutli of them automatic and
both profitable. They are the Payroll
Savings Plan where you work, or, if
self-employed, the Bond-a-Mpnth Plan
at your hank. If you can sign up for
a $37.50 bond earb month liiey’ll grow
to $1,998 in 10 years.

Of All U.S. Women
Drawing Pay Checks
WASHINGTON, D. C. — Almost
one-third of all women of working
age are drawing a pay envelope
according to the women’s bureau
of the labor department.
A new handbook on Facts on
Women Workers also disclosed that
the place of one fifth of the coun-
try’s married women appears to
be outside the home.
“In sharp contrast to the popu-
larly envisioned picture of the
‘average’ family, consisting of
father, mother, and children,
stands the fact that in 1946 over
6,500,000 families had a woman
head,” the 79-page compendium
Until 1900, women constituted
less than 20 per cent of all work-
ers in the labor force, according
to the report, based on census fig-
ures. Less than 20 per cent of
women worked for pay. But in
1947, latest year reported, women
in the labor force numbered 16,-
323,000, constituted 27.6 per cent of
all workers, and 29.8 per cent of
all women of working, age wore
drawing a pay envelope.
The bureau said it was seeking
to promote a more idealistic con-
cept of the American family pat-
Analyzing the economic respon-
sibilities of women workers, the
bureau estimated that 84 of every
100 working women do so to sup-
port themselves and others.
A section of the handbook on
women’s earnings showed that the
1946 median of all women working
full-time was $1,671, and that only
about One women in ten made as
much as $2,500 annually.
State labor laws for women were
analyzed, as was legislation affect-
ing household employes. The po-
litical and civil status of women
as of Jan. 1, 1948, with all prin-
cipal legal sex distinctions is noted.
The book concludes with a selected
bibliography on American women
and a list of national women’s or-,

Alaskan Railroad "Manager
Says Lady Section Crew Best
WASHINGTON. — Col. J. P.
Johnson, general manager of the
Alaska Railroad, has reported
that “a lady section gang” on
his line “has the best-kept sec-
tion along the railroad.”
He explained to the senate in-
terior committee that eight In-
dian women comprised the sec-
tion gang at Cantwell, about half-
way between Anchorage and
‘‘‘That section is the best-kept
section along tte rhjlroad,” he
said. “It is rugged country.”
