In answer to the first of the three
queries, would say that Mr. Shaw is Jus-1

about society. To me, society and sham
are sjnonymous And not only Is so
ciety a sham, but It Is envy and malice.

Claims Marriage Not Essential.
That there la sham about society, there
can be no reasonable doubt, but that
the whole American people arc enveloped.
In this mocker and deception. Is ab-l
solutely untrue Ab much so as though
all men were branded 'thieves' because
a certain class can be Justly so called j
Because girls In society, girls with,

Marriage, according to Bernard Shaw's
expressed opinion, is the lowest, most
Ignoble thing that could happen to a
man. therefore. I say his own expe-!
rlences must have been exceptional j
It Is too true that the standard set by
so-called "society," the ' Four Hundred '
and the "upper classes," Is of the low

type of the true American.
Kowadajs when girls can be so lnde-1
pendent, earning their own. and often '
their family s livelihood marriage Is not
the only essential thing, the only pos
sible vocation a girl can have, and the
earning powers of a man are not needed
to keep her from want and starvation,
therefore, she can be more particular

ries. True, marriage should be the highest
aim and loftiest purpose of all women,
but It Is not absolutely necessary to keep
her from actual need of a home, and to
say that American girls entice men Into
marriage rather than risk single life.
Is absolutel) false of the average girl,
and Is utterl) dtsproven by the number
of single women In this country to-day.
So why Judge all by a few frivolous
Take the society girl, surrounded on
all sides by every luxury, helpless and
useless except as an ornament. Could
she ever face a life of even middle class
respectability, no matter how she loved
a man? It Is not to be thought of. So
she will marry some one who can give

entertained, housed, clothed, and even

she must marry a man with money un

thought. Whether It Is a love match Is
of no consequence, if It Is a suitable

by which America Is more fitly repre
