Dr. Clarence K. Vliet, who for years
has been making~ a study of the neu

mervous troubles, caused by artificial
stimulation, has increased 75 per.cent.
"If women wish to keep their stand

Dr. VlIet. "They must stop working

"Women h.ve always been fascinated
by the freedom men enjoy, and to a
certain extent copied their pleasures
and pastimes, but never have they
participated in their dissipations as
they are doing. '
"The danger in this does not lie so
much with the woman at home as
with the woman who goes into a busi
ness and is continually out in the
world. The home woman influences
a certain restricted set; the one in
the business world influences by her
example, hundreds of others.
"By the business woman I do not

I believe absolutely that if such habits

And nothing our love can sever,
No matter the trail of our wayward feet,

A crown on her curly tousles,.
