Billie Burke Advises Washing
ton Girls .Not to Yield Happi
ness to Prejudice. .
By JCllA CJIAJTDLER 3XAJTZ.
At least two months ago I had a call
from a most anxious mother whose mind
was filled with horror because her per
fectly well-bred oung 'daughter wanted
to go on the stage. The very fact that
the girl had had all the cultural advant
ages which discriminating parents could
possibly give, for some strange reason or
other, made the mother's disappointment
In the trend of her aspirations ail the
more poignant, and nothing I eemed able
to say could convince the adoring ma
ternal parent that every educational ad
vantage her daughter bad been given
would assist in making her stage work In
telligent. She had gone the way of many
mothers, mapping out a stereotyped
("womanly" ls the word she used) life
for her girl parties of all kinds after
her social debut; a brilliant enough mar
riage, financially and socially, to assure
an Idle, useless futuro all the dajs that
should follow her marrlage-rtlio most
vital crisis In a girl's life.
Unfortunately for the mother's plans
tho Divinity which shaped the girl had
given her ability and ambition, which,
from her childhood, would not let her
alone, a circumstance which brought anx
iety to her mother and a serious unrest
to the girl herself.
'"Why She Choe Mis IJurkr.
Perhaps I would not have found all this
out bad not the girl come to me one daj
last week after I had almost forgotten
the islt from her mother bringing me
a letter which Miss BUlle Burke had
written her in replj to a thousand and
one anxious questions which sho had
asked the joung Frohman star
"You see." confided my joung caller,
thcro is no help for It. I simply must
ssure mj-self either that I can or that
cannot be an aitress And there was
so much I wanted to know that I wrote
"Whj- Miss Burke?" I asked, wondering
hj she had selected her frojn nmong
o manj ttage celebrities
'First because she l my ideal. Second.
because she is the onlv actress who has
made a big success whom I have person-
met, and also because I hoped she
would let me have a talk with her fay
to face while she is here at the National
Theater in "The Mind the Paint Girl" '
'And what did Miss Burke saj- to you; '
I wanted to know.
She handed me the letter which she
had received from the charming come
dienne, and when I had read It I asked
her permission to publish a portion of It
because I think the advice It gives will

SOME REASONS WHY ,

' What is the reason for this wedding
mania among women?"
"Why Is it that at all fashionable wed

Some women go to make notes of the

ls tall and good-looking, and how the
guests and friends are dressed.
"When anj body of note Is going to be
married. I look up their pedigrees and
find out all I can about them. Then,
when I see them In the flesh, it Is more

Declares that, Aside from Tal
ent, Patience is First Requi
site of Stage Success.
It was all waiting and that nothlng'would
ever happen. Every girl who makes a
success on the stage must have ability
and she must be prepared to wait And,
oh, how discouraging it all Is! But when
you do succeed the joy of It makes up
for all the disappointments and heart
aches that have gone before.
KothfnsT b"t Prejudice.
"About your mother's feeling In the
matter there seems to me but one thing
to say, and that one is that no one who
has that something In them which tells
them that they have the ability to make
a wonderful thing of life can lay aside
the voloe which calls them for the sake
of any other human being and certain
ly not for the sake of prejudice. For it
Is prejudice, myjdear. this feeling of
many mothers that their daughters are
going straight to perdition as soon as
they set foot on the dramatic boards. If
a mother has prepared her daughter
through all her adolescent jears for those
of maturity she will be safe anywhere.
If a mother has not done this her girl
will be safe nowhere, least of all In the
sort of Idle existence which most moth
ers cheerlsh as the crowning point of suc
cess for their daughters.
"Ever j' human being roust live his or
her own life. No matter how great, ten
der, and protective a mother's love it
cannot shield her child from the experi
ences through which she must pass as
she travels life's road. Only the charac
ter she has helped her girl build can do
this It is what we are that counts:
what we are that makes or breaks us.
"And it Is Just because of this that I
feel so strongly that not even a mother
has the right Jj map out the life her
daughter shall lead the profession sho
shall follow. This Is not, however, a sug
gestion that any girl should treat the
broader experience, tho loving advice and
o!littude of her mother with disrespect,
for she can find no one In all this world
who means so well toward her. It Is Just
simply that It Is utterly impossible for a
mother who has never felt the call of the
stage, the impelling force of ambition:
the never-let-go hold of ability: to un
derstand the workings of the mind of her
joung daughter who ls urged to action
bj all of these things"
This, with a few other comments, con
stitutes Miss Burke's letter, which I hope
every mother of every girl who feels
herself called by any special work will
read, and read, and read again

SPLENDID THINGS THA T
THE WOMEN'S CLUBS DO
Br FRANCES SHAFFER.
As time goes by, we read all sorts of
pleasant words regarding the modern
dubs for modern women, and tribute
otter tribute goes their way for the work
that they are doing.
They are said to be -in the foreground
of useful work, are complimented for
their interest In public affairs, and are
approved and applauded on every hand.
Now, some folk are rather skeptical ot
the Influence that these clubs wield, quite
doubtful of the good that they do. They
say that women lightly skim the surface
stir things up a bit. make a lot of noise,
and let it go at that.
But If any one-seriously question the
standing of women's clubs, he is re

"If women's clubs would act together
on this question they would hold the
situation in their own hands and could
make whatever terms they liked."
"Women In their clubs could take hold
and bring about reform."
"That little matter would certainly
be set aright if women would start
the ball a-rorling In their clubs."
That is what they say. and they ray

And the point of It is. they say it be

organized women have accomplished In

"Well, majbe thej" could. And one

JULIA DEAN IS A
Julia Dean, who portrays the part of
Virginia Elaine in George Broadhurst's
Bought and Paid For" company, at
the Belasco this week, has many log
ical Ideas to advance in the cause of
the suffragists. One ot the theories
of Miss Dean advances. In which she
claims that all women who pay taxes
on realty should be entitled to a vote,
smacks of logic, and she has made
numerous addresses In some of the
leading cl.tles 'tlfroughout the Union In
behalf of her sez that have been fa
vorably commented upon because of
the common sense and equitable con
sistency to be found la the argument
that we find ourselves tnrnlns; to that
old chorus about -"women's' clubs" and
the power they might wield.
There's that age-old question that deals
with the woman who sins.
Of all the questions upon which wom
en have put their thought, their work
and their care, there ls nothing that
comes quite so close to the real growth
of the world as this.
And with women's clubs giuwu big
enough and purposeful enough to look
the sorry Issue In the face, to take off
thtlr gloves and go to work for the
help of all womankind, whether good or
bad, fortunate or unfortunate, Bneltsji-ed
or exploited, there ls great hope for the
good that they may do.
This ls a question that has a great
many ugly arms, reaching out In differ
ent directions, arms that have crtahed
and destroyed in . past, and the time
is ripe for women to take it up and do
all that they can.
That they are taking It up ls not lust
one of the best, but 1t ls the truest of all
the tribute they earn. And one trusts
they may grow earnest and yet more
earnest In a cause that has called to
them for many long jears.
A COURSE DINNER
IS EASY TO SERVE
If Forethought It Used in Preparing
Menu, Preparation Will
Many of our housewives who want the
elegance of a course dinner, yet who are
limited to the services of one maid, would
be much amazed at the ease with whlc'i
they can both cook and serve if a little
forethought be used In the menu.
A preliminary cocktail, prepared before
hand from a bottled sauce or catsup and
ojsters or clams, makes a good begin
ning, and can be mad ready In the early
morning and placed on lco to great ad
A clear soup with -vermicelli or noodles
can be cooked tre day before and may
simmer quietly for half an hour before
serving timo without further care.
Fish Is well represented bj deviled
crabs, seasoned and turned Into little
mounds In the center of scallop shells.
This may be done any time several hours
previous to tho feast, and all they need
at meal time is a simple browning In the
Largo and substantial roasts are not
only hard to prepare and ssrve, but also
fill the oven to the exclusion of everj
thlng else, so it ls advisable to have dell
clous little steaks, fillet of beef, with
canned peas and pomme de terre au
gratln. and prepared early In the da
from mashed potato and a sprinkling
of grated cheese.
Most salads may, without serious In
jury, be mixed sev era! hours before using
and placed in a large bowl In the refrig
erator, placing it on the lettuce leaves
at serving time Cheese balls are better
made early, and Iced. v
Certainly for desserts mothlng could b
more delicious, more appetizing, or more
decorative than individual charlotte
ruse, more popular than ice cream, with
hot maple or chocolate sauce and stuffed
wafers, or more soul-satisfying than a
tuttl frutti French cream, all of which
may be either ordered from the caterer
or made at home early. With bonbons,
coffee and cigars this provides for a
reallj" elaborate dinner of eight courses,
which could be prepared for that matter
bj- the housewife herself In the fore
noon. Inasmuch as the only thing which
must be actually cooked at meal time
ls the steak. Almost any maid could
be trusted to do tho rest.
Coddled Eggs Nnitritlons.
Eggs covered with boiling water and al
low ed to stand for five minutes are much
better flavored than the soft-boiled egg
that is actualy boiled for three minutes.
Dieticians tell us. too. that the so-called
coddled egg ls far more nutritious and
more easily digested.
