RB pretty girls serioseT What do
ri yea think T Every once in a while
a discussion comes np among my
readers and some ef them seem to
treat the question as though It were
of groat importance. Strangely
enough, the question never Interests
the pretty girl or the homely girl, but
mostly the mas who is as admirer o"
beauty but who seems to suspect the
beautiful woman ot frivolity.
"What do I think?" one ;-oung mi
wrote me yesterday.
Frankly 1 don't know. There Is no
reason why the pretty girl shouldn't
be aa sensible, as practical a.d as se
rious minded, as the one who Is not
blessed wtth so much personal at
traction, x do think that most of tbo
training given to pretty girls is not
of a sort to make them serious. Tbey
are apt to be spoiled when they are
fannies and too much admired when
they are children. They are ted upon
compliments and often given too much
flattering attention at an age when
they are susceptible to such things.
Sum the homely girl rarely gets so
much attention, she lias much more
time to give to serious pursuits. Yet
I have known many pretty girls who
were eerie ns and practical enough to
satisfy the most severe critic. And
I have known a great many girls
without sn element ot personal at
traction ar charm who were Inordin
So there is the problem (If It Is a
problem) as I see it. Every reader
will bese his or her Judgment upon
his or her own experience. I would
rather like to think that pretty girls
could be serious If they chce. for
prettlneai Is apt to fade while the
more serious qualities of life are
always an asset.
But. after aD. if a girl Is pretty
enough she Is such an ornament to
the -world that she fulfills her whole
mmekra simply by being pretty, and
adding to the beauty and Joy of life.
I do not think It is a very grave
problem. So yea?
