Under 18 in the Glassware Industry,”’ was undertaken. In the same 
way developed the Bureau's report on “Fourteen and Fifteen Year Old 
Children in Industry,’’ together with its analyses and studies of acei- 
dents to minors. Realizing the fatigue that comes with industrial life 
and the need of correct posture and good chairs for industrial workers, 
the Bureau published a study, ‘A Good Chair for the Industrial 
Worker,”’ that presented basic principles in these matters. Im its 
studies of women in industry, the Bureau considered quite early the 
smployment of women in department stores and in its bulletin, ‘The 
Personnel Policies of Pennsylvania Department Stores,’ it made a 
distinet contribution. Recently, the Bureau has undertaken a very 
somprehensive survey of hours and earnings of men and women em- 
ployed in the textile industries. Its first bulletin on this subject, a 
study of conditions in the silk industry, has just recently been pub- 
lished. A second one on the same subject dealing with the hosiery 
industry will soon be published and the third and last one in that group 
dealing with the knit goods industry is now being prepared.
