From The Indianapolis News, Tuesday, July 10: A register of Indianapolis women who can qualify as seamstresses to work on army shirts is being compiled by the Federal Employment Bureau. The quartermaster’s depot at Jeffersonville, Indiana has more shirts, already cut, on hand than can be sewed up by seamsters of that vicinity, and an appeal for help has been made through the Indiana League for Women’s Service. This is the first call that has been made on Indiana women to help in war work either by patriotism or by the desire for the liberal payment. A large central workroom may be opened in Indianapolis under the supervision of a forewoman to handle the contract. However, the number and availability of careful sewers in the local labor market needs to be known before any shirts can be received.
