HERE'S A LETTER TO THE EDITOR OF THE TIMES-WILL YOU READERS ANSWER IT?
Tacoma, January 16.
Editor, The Times:
Your valuable newspaper seems to hold a
firmer grip on the plain human things that plain
human people like to know about.
So—l am going to tell you about me and my
ease, and I ask you to tell me just the best thing to
lam a young married woman, 24 years old. I
have been married three years. My husband is very
much like other young men of our "middle"
class. He earns $25 a week and we do not save any
thing. He is 27.
He does not drink or gamble, but somehow his
expenses are greater than mine; his clothes cost
more, and he needs them oftener, it seems.

OLYMPIA, Wash., Jan. 17.—
Advocates of the mother's pen
sion are today rejoicing through
out the state following the intro
duction of two separate bills in
the legislature providing for the
care of mothers.
To Representative Corkery of
Spokane and Browne of Kittlias
belong the honors for launching
the campaign for the pension.
Corkery's bill provides for a pen
sion of $ 1 r» a month to mothers
for each child where there is no
breadwinner in the household,
and gives the superior judge dis
cretionary power in awarding the
Representative Browne ] ro
posos $1(1 for the first child and
$,"> for each additional child, tlie
juvenile court to have jurisdic
tion in ordering the penilon.
While both these bins are dif
ferent, each is intended for the
same purpose, namely lo provide
for poor mothers of this state.
The mothers' pension flghl
started by the Seripps papers tn
this state, seem to be taking a
deep hold nnd everybody Is try
ing to get on the bandwagon.
There does not seem to be any
real organized opposition to the
measure and an early passage of
the proposition Is looked upon
with favor among the legislators.
