Would gladly take care of small children while mother shops, teach a bride to cook, help make over clothes for a large family. No pay will bo expected.” Did you ever see and ad like that in a paper? No, of course not. Yet how often have you heard middle-aged women, their children grown, ask for sympathy with the old line, “Nobody needs me any more?” Plenty of times. Yet they go on year after year without trying to find anyone who needs them. The person who wants a job doesn’t sit and wail, "No employer needs me.” He goes out and finds an employer who does. If these women would use the same get-up-and-get, they could find plenty of people who need their help. And they don’t have to advertise either. •n. nine uiougiu aoout persons they see daily would show lots of ways they could be useful. A New York school teacher sol ved the “Nobody needs me” prob lem by continually, through the years, keeping some bright, am bitious ,but poor, boy or girl in college. She Solved The Problem She lived alone and she hadn’t a family, but she had the gump tion to see that there were people who needed her—more people than she could help in a lifetime. Any woman who really wants to could find just as good an answer to the “Nobody wants me” prob lem. The trouble is, most women don’t want to be needed by anyone but their own children.
