Transcript Here a number of other girls and women at neighbouring benches, who occasionally joined in the above conversation, remarked that they had also been last year to Rest Homes, and had had a very good time. One said she had been to a sanatorium! in the Crimea for six weeks, and she waxed eloquent on the beauty of the place. " But did you feel better ? Did you like the food and the treatment ? " we asked. " Well," she replied, laughing, " I was much stouter and weighed ever so much heavier—I forget how many pounds. Yes I felt much better. The food was all right, only they expected me to eat more than I could Mineral Spring Source, Essentuki, Caucasus manage. They were all very kind, but I wish the doctor had not been quite so strict—he would insist on at least an hour's rest—lying down on the bed, not just anywhere outside—after lunch. Sometimes I found that rather irksome, still I enjoyed my stay there." We left the subject of Rest Homes and Sanatoria, and noted that a number of the girls had sore fingers. D. : " What is the matter with your fingers ? " W.W. : " Some months ago we decided at a meeting of the factory that at all costs we must raise the output of the factory, and wc decided to work doubly hard. Some have tender skins, and you see the result. But we don't care, we are determined to make our factory a success, however tired we may feel at the end of the day, or however our fingers may hurt." " Do you all feel like that," we asked, appealing to the other women workers near by. " Certainly," came a chorus of voices, and one added, " Well, you see, if we raise the output, that will mean, of course, an increase in the profits of the factory, and then our wages will rise, there will be money for improving the factory, for building new houses, for increasing the schools and kindergartens, more of us will be able to go to the Rest Homes."
