What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

WOMEN OFAMERICII, OMR! Pour All Your Savings Into Uncle Sam's Lap—Keep on Saving and Pouring Until the World Is Free. By INEZ HAYNES IRWIN. What can the women of America do to help win this war? Two things are certain; one that they can do a great deal and another that, unless the war lasts ten years longer, they can never do so much its theeFrench, English and Italian women have done, they can never suffer so much as the French, English and Italian women have suffered. To me, returning to America after two years in the war countries, the un- touched gayety of the American people came as a terrific shock. I had left world as black and silent as night; a world in which I had seen no dancing, a world in which I had heard no spon- taneous laughter or—except in ihe case of military bands—no music. At first the atmosphere of America was almost unbearable. I was obsessed with the desire to get back to the allied coun- tries, to suffer with them, rather than enjoy the comparative comfort of a comparatively unaroused America. The luxury everywhere appalled me. Those hundreds of motors gliding through our streets for Instance! Private motors have long ago disap- peared from allied Europe. The beau- tiful fabrics, the furs and laces, the gorgeous sport 'clothes and the dazzling evening dresses which still distinguish the women of America. Ban on Evening Clothes. The first time I Was invited to a dinner party on my return, I wore a long-sleeved high -necked gray -and - black gown and found myself a wren among birds df paradise. No woman of France would think of wearing eve- ning clothes. Indeed, both men and women are prohibited by law from ap- pearing in evening clothes at the thea- ter. On the few social occasions in wider' they take part, French women are dressed in black gowns with a lit- tle lace at the neck and sleeves. Eng- lish women still wear evening clothes. When their men return on their rare leave from the front, they cover their aching hearts with as much gayety as possible In order to send them back to the filth and the vermin and the rats and the damp and the cold and the wounds and the constant sight of death psychologically refreshed. But most of the evening dresses that the English women are now wearing date back to the beginning of the war. And strang- est of all, perhaps, for a country at war, those lustrous streets with their rows of electric lights and their vivid, flashing, changing, iridescent electric signs. In Paris, you plunge into a deep twilight when you leave your res- taurant, and in London you grope your way home through a dangerous Sty- gian gloom. Then the careless spend- ing in American hotels anti restau- rants. In Paris those places close at half-past nine. And food! Food con- ditiona have never been so bad in France as In the other allied coun- tries, for France has always fed her- self and Is, moreover, the world's best cook. But in Italy and England, meat Is a rare luxury to be obtained only once In a great while; butter and sugar are long -forgotten dreams. See Their Homes Destroyed. And then in the case of France and to some degree of Italy, the allied women have seen vas,t stretches of carefully cared -for ancient forpt and enormous sections of softly-fflautiful farming country turned into metal -rid- den dumps; they hnve seen dozens of email cities and hundreds of little vil- lages transformed to ash heaps; they have seen so much old sacred beauty In the form of churches, cathedrals and historic- monuments reduced to hills of rubble that—the whole world /mist seem a desert t9 them. They have even had to endure the extra affront of an exhibition in Berlin of the art treasures looted from northern France. The allied women have nursed the wounded, tbe tubercular, the under- nourished; they have' taught new trades to the crippled and blind gnd those who are invalided for life. They have taken care • of thousands and thousands of refugees from Belgium, northern France and Siberia. They have luel to provide for the bringing' up of thousands of orphan children. This has not (-time upon them gradual- ly, but all the time and In increasing proportions. But, after all,' these things are as nothing to the death of the flower of their male youth. England and France and Italy nave lost so Much in man power that im member of our genera- tion looks ter happiness Reale during his own lifetime 1 They hope only for one thing—to insure the freedom pi the next generation. Sons All Gone. \My husbniel is a Parisian,\ said a beautiful American woman married to n Frenchman, \Ile has always lived In Parts. He has many friends here. lie Is forty-five Years old. His friends range In age from forty tt sixty. Not one has a son left.\ \Thank you for your kind letter,' wrote an English girl to 21 woman wilt had just sent a letter condoling witi her on the death of the last of three brothers. \We find the country a 11t - tie dreary now and we are returning to town the last of the month. We shall be at home Sunday evenings. Be sure to come to us often. We want to see all our friends mei hear what they hare been doing In the last three months. Mother and father look fon Wart) With special pleasure to meeting you all again. Please bring any sol- dier friends; we will try to make it gay for them\ \What news do you get from Fred- erick,\ a friend of mine asked of the mother of Frederick, a beautiful mid- dle-aged English woman Who Was tanking a great success of at dance given for some convalescent Tommies. \Oh you haveu't heard, have you,\ the mother of Frederick answered. \lie was killed two' months ago.\ And she turned to answer with her ready sym- pathetic smile the inquiries of a group of Tommies gathered about her. Fight Same as Men. But that is not all. In a manner of speaking, the wonwn of Europe are fighting the war just its the men ure. They have not, except in tlte case of the fatuous Battalion of Death, died in battle; and yet a half to three- quarters of a million women have been killed as the direct result of war ac- tivities. More women have been kill- ed In this war than men on both the Northern and Southern sides in our Civil war. That nearly three-quarters of a million includes the women nms- secred by the Turks in Armenia, by the Austrians in Serbia, by the Gem' mans In Belgium and northern France; it Includes army nurses and women munition makers; it includes civilian women killed by shells In the war zone or near it, women killed by Zep- pelin and airplane raids and by sub- marines. What can the women of America do to equal all this service and all this suffering? For three years, the French anti English, and for two years, the Ital- ians, have stood between us and the death of our democracy. What can we do to make up for that long, hesi- tating neutral inuction of ours? The men of our nation litte responded gal- lantly. We have a real army in France now. As Lloyd George said in parlia- ment to a listeneig empire, \The Amer- icans are in.\ We are in and of course we are in to stay, In for a century if need be, until the safety of the world democracy is assured. The men of America are doing their part— doing It with tiliffering and death. What can the women do? What Women Can Do. It Is the geographical misfortune of us women of America that we cannot possibly give the personal service that the women of Europe have given. They are near and we are far. They, so to speak, are In the front trenches and we have not entered the war zone. Only a very few of us, in proportion to our numbers, can work in the hos- pitals or canteens there. Only a few more in proportion to our numbers can do Bed Cross work or Y. M. C. A. work here. There are, however, two things we can do all the time and with all the strength that Is In us. One is to conserve food. The other is to buy Liberty bonds. We can help the government by buying bonds. Yet again we have an advantage; it is our peculiar misfortune that most of us can help the government only by help- ing ourselves. For the purchase of Liberty bonds at the generous rate of Interest which the government grants is not self-denial but in line with self- interest—legitimate of course, but still self-1nterest. Women of America, wake up! Pour all your savings into Uncle Sam's lap. Then save more, and pour then) into his lap. Keep on saving and pouring. pouring and saving, until the world is free. You have . given generously of the sinews of war In Gloat- mag- nificent boys you have sent to France. Give as generously in the money which will keep them well and happy there.
