sary to put the jobless to work.
In no case, will these Statewide
projects cancel projects already
The Director of Women's Work
has initiated a Statewide project
involving $12,500,000.00 which is
expected to employ 6,000 men on
white collar jobs, and 18,000 wom
en on jobs of all types. Types, of
projects initiated are: Sewing
Rooms, the making of useful gar
ments; Homemaking; Canning;
Bedside Nursing; and Diatetics,
and will continue for a period of
twelve months. If no Projects oth-r
than these are Initiated, they alone
will insure employment for 24,000
men and women for one year.

have been partially approved, how
ever funds have actually been re

are in Belmont and Concord, and it
is expected that several hundred
men will begin actual work there
next week. Delay has been inevi

and the congestion in Washington.
After forwarding to Washington,
eighteen to twenty days is required
for projects to pass all obstacles
