SAYS MEN MAKE '
WOMEN LIARS BY
Declares Art of Deceiving

By DOROTHY D1X.
A young chap wm going Into
heroics because he thought hit
flnancee had deceived him in some
"For heaven's sake, eon." ?aid

idiot enough to make yourself miserable
over nothing. Of course she
, deceived you. I deceive you. Tour
sisters deceive you. all women derive
all men. We begin by fooling
you about the cookie Jar when
you are a little boy, and we end by
fooling you about the bills when
you are a married men. No man
will stand for the truth from wornen.
As long as you live women
w?l| lie to you. Get used to it."
All of which Is one of the most
cynical facts In the world, for while
every man will tell you that there
is no other virtue that he admires
and respects so much in a woman
as truthfulness, every woman
knows that Veracious Jane Is slated
to spend her latter years in the
Old Maids' Home.
It is often urged as a criticism
?f women.that they are less truthful
than men. more given to subterfuges
and tb* teUing of taradiddles.
Probably this is the case, because
th? whole training of the sex. since
the very beginning of time, has
been In the art of side-stepping.
Until within the last ten years
women were absolutely dependent
on the whims of men. Everthlng
they had was the gift of some
man's hand and had to be wheeled
out of father, or brother, or husband.
or lover. A woman's whole
well-being depended on the pleasure
of her lord and master, and the
kind of mood she kept him In.
It Is impossible that this state of
affairs should develop candor and
frankness in the female character.
It probably wasn't 10 o'clock In the
morning of her first day in the
garden of Eden before Eve discovered
that the way to work
Adam, and make him climb the
highest tree to get her the most
golden fruit on the topmost branch,
was to tell him what a wonderful
athletic figure he had. and how
gracefully he shinned up a branch.
And she passed the information
down to her daughter, and she
handed it on to her daughter and
it is still a perfectly successful
plan of operation In dealing with
the male of the species. For men
are as naively eager to have their
fur stroked the right way as the
kitten that comes up and rubs
against your knee, and she who
refuses to do it is a mean, grudging.
nit-wlt who deserves what she
gets, and that is to have her husband
go to some woman who knows
more about how how to take care
of domestic pets, and keep them at
home, than she does.
Men have made women liars by
putting a premium upon lies. If
you would pit the most beautiful
woman In the world with a conscience
which compelled her to tell
the absolute truth to every man.
against a homely woman who was
an adept salve spreader, you would
find the beauty papering the walls
at every party while the men
swarmed around the homely sister
like bees around a honey pot.
It is the girl who tells men the
things they want to hear about
themselves; the girl who looks
thrilled and interested no matter
how big a bore she is listening to;
the girl who can pull off a laugh
over the stories she has heard a
thousand times before; the girl who
can put on an admiring and adoring
look that makes any man feel
Irke he was about seven feet high
and as wise as Solomon, who is a
belle, and eventually captures a
You never hear of a girl being
popular with men who lets them
see that she has got their exact
number and knows precisely where
they get on and off.
Men make women liars by penalising
the truth. It is only the fortunate

luck to get big. broad, just, toler- 1
ant men for husbands who dare be
frank with them, and tell them the
exact truth. 1
Most women would like to be 1
truthful with their husbands, but
their husbands won't let them.
They force the wives to cheat and '
deceive them, or else endure such 1
scenes and be subjected to such insults
and recriminations as few
women have the courage to stand. <
Not many of us are of heroic 1
mould or have any yearnings 'toward
the martyr role. We prefer 1
to get through life as easily and 1
comfortably and with as little friction
as possible, so we naturally
follow the line of leaat resistance.
Therefore if a husband raises Cain 1
every time his wife goes to the
movies, when he has spent the af- 1
ternoon watching a film and asks 1
her where she has been, she flbs "
about it and says she has been
shopping. Her subterfuge is on hi* <
head, because he has compelled i
her to deceive him or else have a
row. She would a thousand times
rather tell him where She had been
and discuss with him all of the j
thrills she had enjoyed. i
When a man absolutely refuses i
to give his wife a cent of money 1
of her own he drives her not only i
to lying but petty larceny. He 1
