I have felt only an infinite pity for
the exploited girl.
Then there is the girl -who works
in the store and whose life is just
drudgery and hardship and who is
therefore an easy prey to the men
who exploit in the name of love.
Sometimes the man who exploits the
girl is a victim of exploitation him
self, in that he doesn't make enough
money to marry, but most of these
men haven't the decency to protect
the girl they have exploited in the
name of love. Understand, I am not
saying that the girl isn't equally re
sponsible for the folly. She usually
is, and nature is to blame for both,
but the girl is honest and the man is
, The girls exploited by men in the
game of love are all on the down
road, a step further along than the
exploitation of the bosses put them,
but some pay a bigger price to soci

ROOSEVELT AGAINST ROOT
New York, April 25. Judge A. D.
