PLAN HAVEN TO RECLAIM GIRLS
WHO GO WRONG
The "gone wrong" girl will be giv
en a real chance to come back if
clubwomen who met in morals court
yesterday fulfil the plans they talked
The idea is that the clubwomen
and the state shall get together and
build a country home where fallen (Sk
girls will be given every opportunity
to climb back to physical and moral
They will not call the home a "ref
uge" or a "House of Correction";
They want the girls to think that
they can rid themselves of the red
stain of their misfortune and again
be wholesome, womanly creatures.
That is why it is suggested that the
place be called "The Home for Con
valescents." "I never know what to do with a
girl brought before me," Judge Uhllr
told the women. "As it is, I must
either send her to the Bridewell or
fine her and send her back to the
streets. Neither was is wise or just."
The state appropriated $50,000 for
a refuge home to be built as an an
nex to the Bridewell. All social work
ers are against this plan, for they do
not want the girls to be impressed
with the fact that they are in jail.
The plan fostered yesterday was for
the women to raise $100,000 to put
with the state's $50,000 and build a
country home for the girls.
