Management of an Im

Their Association in
Business Has Made

At No. Ml Atlantic avenue, Brooklyn.
Mrs. Kathleen Eileen Barry manages
one of the largest bookbinding establish
ments In Oreater New Tork. For the
last four years Mrs. Barry's daughter,
Miss May Barry, has been learning how
to work, under her mother's direction,
and now she holds the position of sec
retary and also manager of an Impor
tant department In the establishment.
Mlas Barry Is only twenty-two years
old, but since her eighteenth Wrthday
she has been her mother'? business as
sociate. "You see," said Mrs. Barry, swinging
sround in her office chair, "with the
present day conditions of work for
woman, when the mothers are taken
away from the home and see practi
cally nothing of their children, the only
result that can he expected Is an es
trangement of parent from child, and
that Is one of the most undesirable sit
uations that can be Imagined.
"I have known mothers w ho have not
seen their daughters save for a few
hours In the evenings for weeks and
weeks at a time. And they wondered
why the glrla lacked confidence in them
why they were not more companion
able. WORK MAKES STRANGERS OF
MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS.
"If these moth Sri would stop to think
they might realize that they are prac
tically strangers to their daughters and
that one Is not usually given to confid
ing In strangers. This Is the condition
that has come about In many homes,
due to the fact that the mother must
work. At first It was the daughter who
worked and was not at home. When
the daughter grew up, married and had
a family It was the mother who still
worked to aid the family. But now we
are coming to a time when the mother
still works, and the daughter, growing
up to be a responsible young woman,
becomes identified with Interests out
side of the famll.w In this condition
you are given the most desirable op
portunity of having mother and daugh
ter associated together.
"This business relation between them
creates a sympathy and an under
standing that even a life together at
home would not produce. It is vastly
different and the mental change that It
brings about it hard to explain. How
ever, their Interests are combined for
the good of the home and business.
There Is no flippancy about the office,
and their pleasures take on a certain
tone of dignity and hold a mutual In
terest that is delightful. They have
things of greater weigh to talk o thnn
gossip and dress.
"I think that the association of the
daughter with the mother In business
Is also of a decided advantuge to the
older woman. The mother begins to
think In a younger vein, while she still
has a restraining Influence over the
' daughter. I do not mean a severe or
I tyrannies.' control, hut an Influence that
prevents the daughter from becoming
"From my experience I find that we
have become more like good chums or
wnrk fellows than mother and daugh
ter. I am certain that my dauift-ter has
none of the fear of me that many hold
for their mothers. We discuss all mat
ters that appertain to business openly
and frankly. We are both Interisfed in
tho same character of things at and
away from home, anil all In nl' I cannot
think Ot a better arrangemen' lr view

"Aside from this, 1n hustness there is
a trust between us that Is difficult to
establish between strangers or with a
man. 1 know that when I go awuy

In charge ever yt lilnif w ill be done prop

she has learned what loyalte means to
a business man or womati, and she

"If men are associated with their sons
In business hy should not mother

good thing for a man to have his son
near him in his ivork, It Is a thousand
times more desirable that a mother
