Book Excerpt: 
". . .I decided to devote my long summer vacation to getting first-hand knowledge about the life of girls who worked in department stores. It seemed to me that the facts would be more definitely established if I placed myself upon the same basis as that of thousands of girls who start working in department stores every year, even to living on the wages I earned. I determined to go to New York and become, as nearly as I could, a department store worker. . ."
