THSRE ARE TWO SIDES TO THE QUESTION
French sociologists who have been studying the American working girl
are astonished at her "unrest" because, they say, the French'worklng girl is
well satisfied with 80 cents per day wages.
It is always a mistake to study but one side of a matter and, we guess,
that in this working girl matter, as In most other instances, the French

to these French. The effect of such satisfaction upon the nation seems to
be of slight Importance.
If every girl In France were perfectly satisfied with. 20-cent wages and
every workman perfectly satisfied with 75-cent wages, thejfrench nation

that could happen to, all who receive higher wages is that the poorly paid
should be helped up, as a moral, social and economic advantage to the
If the masses of France are satisfied with bare living wages we are
sorry for France. The native masses of Africa are satisfied with a couple
of fig leaves and a handful of nuts, figuratively speaking, and that's why
the African is being crowded off the face of thevearth. "
