Tne Girl Part of the Boy Probl em.
(Do girls and women realize
what a part their dress plays in
the life of the world about them?
There would be a swift and radi
cal change in the dress of some,
if they could see the influence
upon boys and men of their pres
ent mode of dressing. Probably
not before in this generation
have there been any such pre
vailingly offensive styles in the
women's dress of America as
there are today. Need it con
tinue? Mr. Foster's frank words
'are sorely demanded. May there
be a genuine response to this
protest, for the safe-guarding of
lives into which evil now finds so
ready an access.
The growing boy has been un
der the searchlight of investiga-"
tion in a remarkable way, especi
ally within the last ten years. So
far as he is concerned we may
frankly say that he is no longer
the formidable "problem" that
he was once supposed to be.
One of the most significant
things that has been brought
home to us with emphasis is the
fact that the problems of boy
hood are intricately involved
with other relationships, and not
the least of these is the relation
ship of the boy and girl.
It is my privilege to do my
thinking in terms of thirty
thousand boys in the teen age,
the entire boyhood of a great
city. Not that I have relation
ships with any such numberjbut
along with definitely construc
tive duties I am set as a watch
man upon the wall to sound the
alarm when any danger seems to
menace the boyhood life of the
community. This charge makes
me of necessity a student of boy
hood life in large cities, and I
have in mind to write with earn
est frankness concerning a phase
of the girl element that appears
to be a new menace impossible
as it has been proved to be for
anything to be really new.
I refer to the prevailing man
ner of dress among women, more
especially as seen upon our city
streets. I have no hesitation in
saying that it is not alone im
modest, but is as well immoral;
and I greatly fear that we shall
soon see an overwhelming tor
rent of moral laxity engulf our
youth. Indeed, it is here.
I have never known a time in
any of our cities when the young
man intent upon picking up ac
quaintance with a girl on the
street not be reasonably sure of
accomplishing this with a small
amount of effort in certain fairlv
well-defined sections; but never
in all my observation until lately,
have I know a time when, by day
or night, thoroughfares devoted
to shopping or buiness,a proces
sion of girls sweep past a young
man in dress so vulgar that he!
might fairly even though mis
takenly assume that they are on
parade to invite his advances.
The dress of a girl today causes
her to be thrust upon him, per
haps at times when his own
thoughts are far from the realm
of ungentlemanly conduct, and
perhaps with no desire on her
part to aroise such interest.
The seventeen-year-old boy
who sat in my office a few nights
ago and recounted the struggle
of a young man to keep himself
pure was, unfortunately, out a
type of many; and the girl of
chance street-acquaintance who
i-caused him to lose his fight is
but a type, too.
That is sad enough; but one
bows his head in shame when the
boy says, "How did I know she
wasn't decent? Hundreds of
girls on the streets dress and act
like she did."
A man of considerable experi
ence recently designated a cer
tain country hotel as a 'low re
sort'. He was promptly challen
ed by another, who happened to
be a circuit judge; whereupon
the judge remarked: 'you're
wrong. The women who go
there go with their husbands, and
are the. respectable matrons of
the community. You fail to
make allowance for the present
immodesty in women's dress; an
immodesty which causes me to
be ashamed to meet some of my
most respected women acquain
tances on the streets of our city. "
Unhappily, the judge was
right. And right here is the
crux of the difficulty. If only
immodest women and girls dress
ed in vulgar fashion, the line
would be sharply drawn. But
this immodest dress prevails
among all classes.
Those of us who give our lives
to boys find no harder task than
to help the boy in his battle to
keep pure. Imagine such a boy,
fighting such a terrific battle as
only a man can appreciate, con
fronted not once but a hundred
times with indecencies in dress
as he walks a few blocks in the
heart of a city I Will he win or
I do not write as a fashion crit
ic; I write as man who daily
faces the moral issues raised by
these things. But I want
to be specific. There are pre
vailing styles of dress which are
offensively immodest. Among
these are: The tight-fitting
waist; the 'peek-a-boo' waist, in
its really offensive forms (a com
mon object of jest, while it goes
on sowing 3eed for its unhallow
ed harvest;) some styles of low
neck and short sleeves which
many girls affect; many forms
of tight-fitting skirts; skirts
offensively, short; certain types
of hosiery. The list might easi
ly be made longer; it is merely
used by way of illustration.
Women are crying out because
of the libertines among men. I
believe their cries rise to Heaven,
and that Heaven weeps over the
shame of it. But I say with
ought hesitation that these pre
vailing styles of dress are lo
ing passions of countless thous
ands of growing boys whose
physical fight is already severe.
When will women understand
I make no charge of indecent de
sign against thousands of women
whose thoughts- and lives are far
above such a thing. Granted
that they are above such
thoughts: will they not listen to
those who know these things?
i rwo gins oi lrreproacnaoie
character passed me on the
street but a day or two since;
they were dressed conspicuously
and, I should say, immodestly.
The crossing policeman caught
the eye of a teamster and wink
ed, and the teamster replied
with a sneering smile. The girls
never knew of the estimate

Just ahead of me the other
day walked a young woman
whose face, apart from her cos
tume, betoken refinement; but
her dress was of the extreme
close-fitting type, with low, neck
and short sleeves.';- Young men
behind me spoke in the coarsest
terms of her; others' stopped and (
stared; still others turned about
and walked away in her direction
to get a better look. Apparent
ly she was unconscious of the fact
that with her appearance on the
street the ideals of womanhood
were lowered in the mids of
But it does not stop there.
These women of better circum
stances set the pace absolutely
for the girl of small wages. The
girl mav have no home to which
her friends may be invited; her
social effort is expended in her
dress. She follows the prevail
ing fashion of immodesty, she
inflames the passion of the young
men she meets; she may not be
sheltered and safeguarded: and
she is swept under.
Is there a cure for it all? It
is a woman's problem. If going
to the extreme in dress is more
important in the eyes of woman
kind than safeguarding the path
ways of sons, and brothers, and
husbands, then it will continue.
But those who see it as it is must
raise their voices in protest.
