She is one oi Winston-Salem’s prettiest, most Woman Drivers Resentful Of Unfair Make Criticism By RUTH MIIXETT When a midwestern newspaper recently asked a group of men and women “How do you think the public could cut down on automo bile accidents?” half of the men inters iewea took the oppor tunity to make cracfes at wo men drivers. The remarks went like this: ”W#tch the wo men driver. A woman always seems to think she has got the right of way.” And women cause a lot of . i 1_ u. i«n ■ i ■wf.vivnfliai'r'mnw auiiucmo Ruth Millett cause they can’t seem to -keep their minds on driv ing.” So with the return of gasoline we’ve given a certain type of man a chance to air his views once again on one of his pet subjects —women drivers. How come such men take so much pleasure in making absurd '———————————— y and statistically groundless re marks about the capability of wo men drivers—even after women during the war years jumped into the driver’s seats of taxis, buses, truckg, and even generals’ jeeps? It is probably because such men resent the freedom that driving a car gives to a woman. Turn a woman loose with a car and you don’t keep her chained to the kitchen. Shoe Pinches And where the shoe pinches worse is where it affects the indi vidual man himself. If mama knows how to drive the family car, then papa doesn’t have it for h.s own all the time. He gets taken to work and pick ed up afterward—so the little wo men can have the car for market ing, getting the kids to and from school, etc. And that produces a deeprooted antagonism toward the woman driver, whicij — since men can’t do anything else about the matter —results in ridicule. “Might have known it was a wo man. driving that car,” says the unhappy, frustrated man, whose own little woman drives “his” car CLUB CLOCK A meeting of the Ladies Aid society of St. Matthews Luth eran church will be held Wednesday evening at ' 8 o’clock at the home of Mrs. j.
