6 P.M. Making hair-brushes. Hausner family, 310 E. 71 St., N.Y. Frank is 6 yrs old. and John is 12. The mother had a sore throat and wore a great rag rapped around it, but she took it off for the photo. They said they all (including the 6 yr old) worked until 10 P.M. when busy. Their neighbor corroborated this. She said, "It's a whole lot better for the boys than doin' nothin'." The mother said the night work hurts their eyes and John said so too. He was not very enthusiastic about the beauties of work. All together, they make about $2 a week. Father is a motorman. 6 P.M. Jan 31, -12. Location: New York, New York (State)
