Tagging Tax for Sin-le e
Men Is Being
Bachelors Urged Instead
By MOLLIE BROWN. San Francisco
U NDOUBTEDLY the men who first wore buttons advocated
matrimony and wishedl for a wife. The old time bachelor but
tons were essential to dignity and comfort and were not more- P1
ly a tag of eligibility.
Mrs. Frank Page, society leader of ('ambridge, Mass., blossomed forth
and stated that a bachelor button (indicating freedom from matrimonal
strife) should be worn on the coat lapel.
I doubt the advisability of tagging the dear boys who enjoy single a
What good would it do? It would not increase their usefulness, nor
add to their popularity. Bachelor ensigns would probably mean, in the
words of the old songs: "I'm Glad I'm Free" or "Darling, I Am Wait
ing for Thee," according to the viewpoint.
Some financiers say: "l)on't tag the bachelors, but tax them." VI
That is a thieving proposition and only married folks would sanction it.
The world needs bachelors--men and women-and they look good
and do good without the label. TE
If there must needs be tagging done, I suggest that we tag the
married man with a sign so large that "he who runs may read." he
I don't think that bachelors pose as married men, but married men
often pose as bachelors when seeking their soul mates. Tr
Some sympathetic, well intentioned persons
might say that a man encumbered or blessed (as the Co
ease might be) with a wife and family has tags He
enough. But is it not reasonable to suppose that any Me
married man could carry the extra weight of a tag
or button, bearing the warning: "Girls, I am not
free, there are other tags on me." r
Put a label on bachelors? Perish the thought. p. a
A tag would embarrass those worthy bipeds. i B
Remember this is leap year, and all liberty lov- '
ing bachelors cherish the inspired words of Patrick Tp
Henry: "Give me liberty or give me death." Pu

Until our people learn that a salaried man cannot live like a million- p
