A published version of Addams' lecture on March 11 at the National Child Labor Committee Conference in Birmingham, Alabama, in which she presents arguments against an exception to the 1903 Illinois Child Labor Law for child actors and offers some Tolstoyan allegory to buttress her arguments.
Scott encloses a $5,000 check from the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, covering costs of the production of The Trojan Women. Scott notes that because the Endowment was uncertain about the Woman's Peace Party's platform, the award was made to Addams personally.
Addams informs Woods that she has forwarded his question in regards to children in the theater to Mr. Lovejoy. She also implies that though children should not perform if exploited by managers for profit, it is allowable if it is done with education in mind.
