Dear Mrs. Gibson No matter how
innocent may be her own motive, no
girl should go to either luncheon or
dinner with her employer. The man
may try to make her think that his
interest in her is merely with a view
to developing her in his business of
that he would like to talk over the
matters of the office which he will
lack time to do in business hours,
but in the long run he will find and
she will soon feel the lure of himself
conscious of her feminity, his
strength and masculine alertness and
then is when the harm begins.
My advice would be, don't go any

fail to hear all that was said. I heard
the man say, "Is it a man or a wom

"Is she pretty?" was the next ques

"Send her in," was the order.
I got the position. I also got an
invitation to lunch the next day. I
know if I do no accept the luncheon
invitations I shall lose my position
and go hungry. I wonder what "Ex
perienced" would do in a case like
this. Up Against It.
