"GIRL QUESTION AS IMPORTANT
AS BOY QUESTION"
The danger that lurks in a joyride
in an automobile is one of the notes
of warning sounded in a book by W.
L. Bodine, superintendent of compul
sory education, which book is entitled
"Reference Work on Juvenile Wel
fare." "The girl question is fully as im
portant as the boy -question," the au
thor states. "Some girls dance their
way to doom, some walk blindfolded
by failure of their parents to warn
them in time while others ride.
'Light-headed' girls should keep out
of dark automobiles. Automobiles
cannot talk, but there if often a
scream in a joyride."
In a portion devoted to the ques
tion of teaching sex hygiene, Bodine
states that boys of 16 often know
too much and girls of 14 too little
for their protection, and he advo
cates that sex hygiene be taught in
Bodine also makes the assertion
that the underpaid mother makes the
underfed child and the underfed child
means a backward pupil, the truant
or the degenerate.
The volume is dedicated to the
"Women of Illinois."

Why not call her "Frisco?"
Brethren, what's the harm?
Good old San Francisco
Will not lose her charm,
Just because you name her
With a nic-name brief;
How can "Frisco" shame her,
Pain or cause her grief?
Lovers whisper pet names,
Mothers breathe them low;
Would you, then, forget names -
Which were given so?
"Frisco" is a tender
Phrase of lovingness;
Why should it-offend her?
Wherefore bring distress?
Why not call her "Frisco?"
She'll be still the same
Gay old San Francisco .
Under any name.
Bright and brave and brisk. Oh,
Sweet is she and true;
Why not call her "Frisco"
As the Rovers do?
Why not call her "Frisco,"
Where's the harm in '"Frisco?"
Why not call her "Frisco" as the
