being naturally polygamous does not
select one mate and care for her

Mothers teach their daughters that
men respect only those girls who have

have used the word "only" in the

their daughters, if they tell them the
truth, is that which any thinking wo
man can see blazoned on the wall
of modern life men only respect
girls of the domestic virtues.
They DON'T send them flowers;
they DON'T take them to parties;
they DON'T send them invitations to
the theater or the restaurants, and
THEY DON'T MARRY THEM!
Tomorrow The Day Book will pub
