MY SUMMER SEARCH FOR LOVE TRUE STORY
i OF THE POOR GIRL WITHOUT A HOME
HIS ARM STOUE AROUND MY WAi VT
BY ETHEL G-
Chapter V.
I did not take my vacation until
the middle of September. I did not
have money enough to go out of the
city, but spent the time putting my
clothes in order and making some
underclothes for the winter.
A very good-looking chap came
Into the, office one day just before
my vacation, to sell some bonds to
the boss. x
While he was waiting he talked
with merather, tried to pump me
as to what kind of a man the boss
was and" incidentally he gave me a
short history of his life. He was a
country boy who had worked his way
through college, and fallen into a po
sition in this bond house, where he
had been more than moderately sue-1
cessful. I expect it was" because of
his open, "countryfled" ways.
I was much taken with him and
he asked "me if I would let him call;'
said he was alone and very lonely.
I haye found out that a man is
quite as much up against it as a
woman, and I have come to the con
clusion that one reason a man hates
to call on a girl regularly that has
no home is because he likes the at
mosphere that surrounds the girl
who has a home and a "comfy" place
to receive him.
Back in every man's mind te a pic
ture of a home that will be his own
some day, and the sight of a girl in
a room that has a home atmosphere
whets his imagination. -
There is a psychological influence
