Miss Charlotte Hine, Women's Branch, Industrial Servi iiss Mary Van Kleeck, women in Industry Service, Department of Labor, Washington, D.C. PLANT CONDITIONS.  It has been reported to me that 1. conditions in two of the plants in Detroit, namely the Continental Motors Company and the Jeffery-Dewitt Company are very bad and need looking after. I find that the Continental gnal Corps work and Motors is engaged on the Jeffery-Dewitt Company on a sub-contract from the Champion iiipark Plug Company of Toledo, Ohio, so that they do not fall directly within my jurisdiction. If you would like to have me make an investigation for your Division, I would be glad to do so.  CH/B  146u„ Cun LOTTE HIN 's Branch, , Supervisor, :iomen Industrial Service Section.
