CONFESSIONS OF A WIFE
A WOMAN REPORTER OFFERS TO START PAULA ON STAGE CAREER
"The day after my terrible experi
ence at the restaurant," continued
Paula with her story, "I received a
visit from a woman reporter. She
was alert and seemed capable and
prosperous, and immediately the
thought came that perhaps I, too,
could do newspaper work.
"I listened carefully to her ques
tions. She had come for an inter
view with Paula Newton, the society
girl who was having such a hard time
getting a job.
" 'Oh, I don't want to be inter
viewed,' I exclaimed. 'I just want
to be let alone.' '
" 'To starve?' she askedvin a brisk
tone which I felt was very unfeeling.
" 'Why should I need notoriety to
'get on?' I returned fretfully. 'Thou
sands of girls get work and make
good money; yet the public never
hears of them.'
" 'True,' she answered, 'but 'I have
never heard of a woman who made a
great stir in the "world without some
degree of fame good or bad at
taching to it'
" 'You tell me you are not going
back to the resvaurant. What are
you going to do?'
" 'I shall try and go on the stage,'
"She laughed. 'Consciously or un
consciously you have done the one
thing that will help you get a posi
tion. I am surprised you have not
had offers already.'
" 'I have had one,' I said with a
sorry smile. 'But I didn't think I
would care to take it I don't want
to advertise my misfortune. If I
change my name '
" 'Miss Newton,' broke in the re
porter, earnestly. 'Don't change
your name. When I began to write
I took another name. But if I had
it to do over again I would fight for
the use of my own name. That's the
way to fame.'
" Tou have started as Paula New
ton; don't change. Tomorrow I'll
take you to a manager who may give
you a small part in a new play. Have
you enough money to tide you 'over
for the next month?'
" T think so,' I said.
" 'Then good-bye until tomorrow,
and, don't worry about the job. The
story I'm going to write will help,
but you must not be thin-skinned
when, you read it'
" 'I am In for it,' I thought 'and I'm
going to play the game that Emma is
always talking about' "
