—There is great solicitude regard-
ing the morals of women in New
York. Police vice squads and so-
cieties to supress vice have abound-
ed. Prostitution is outlawed. Yet

|drop in women's wages since 1929.
Women are particularly heipiess, due

“Wages of women factory work-

the report,
harder to trace, due to the fact that
piecework is’ increasingly replacing a
flat weekly wage for unskilled fac-
tory operations.”
There is nothing more likely to
promote morality and self-respect
among women workers than a Bving
wage. There is nothing which
more surely drive them into devious

When you or some other member
of the family must lunch alone, why
not have a tray luncheon? An at-
tractive tray carried to some part of
the house or garden quite away from
the scene of your morning's activ-
ities is cheerful and restful. Fur-
thermore, it's no more work to set
a tray than itis to arrange a place
at the table or to clear off a corner
of the kitchen cabinet. :
Porch and garden meals are eas-
ily served on trays. Let the family

then join the group on porch or

The same sort of foods can be

‘are desirable in summer, and of

tray service. Buttered rolls

take some of the dishes without

are awkward for this purpose and
are impracticable.

As for dishes, with the exception
of breakfast, the same dishes that
you would use for any meal are
used. Individual breakfast sets in
gay patterned china are most attrac-
tive, but not necessary. A cover-
ed dish to keep the toast or muffins
hot can take the place of the regu-
lation toast plate and cover, provid-
ed the covered dish permits the
steam to escape. Take care not to
fill dishes too full on the tray.
