Through the Office Window By 'LOWAN' J No Women For East JjiHE proposal, to send Australian women's auxiliaries overseas Tor welfare work with the A.I.F. has been negatived. No decision, however, has been reached by Federal Cabinet con cerning the proposal that women help ers should go to a Y.W.C.A. canteen being organised bv the British autho rities in the Middle East.
