A. convention here to- day, those quiet girls who are known as the the "hired girl" or just plain came out from behind the ononymity of their uniforms and drew up an indictment of mistresses all over the land.

Their grievances, the girls say, are these: They can't get anywhere with the stigma of "hired girl" at- tached to them forever.
