ROBERT McWHIRTKR—Who before her marriage on Wednesday, July 3 at the Wrightsboro Baptist church was Miss Letha Johnson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. M. F. Johnson of Wil mington. Mr. McWhirter is the son of Mr. and Mrs. S. J. Mc Whirter of Binghamton, N. Y. We, The Women A Woman Can Be Happily Unmarried By RUTH MILLETT Her friends are trying to talk her out of building a house — but they aren’t getting very far. To begin with, they don’t see why a woman alone wants a house, when an apartment is so much less responsibility. She answers that with the logical reasoning that a woman's need of a home of her own is just as real if she is a lone woman as if she is married. She can’t see why we so consistently use the phrase "a husband and a home of her own” —as though if you didn’t have the first you couldn’t have the second. Then the friends argue: “But this is a bad time to build.” Her answer to that is, “It’s an even worse time to rent.” She refuses to live by many of the other accepted cliches, too, such as “pinch pennies and save on the little things, so that you can afford' the things that make a showing.” She insists that by being free and easy in small money matters she never gets the feeling of being poor that penny-pinchers always have — no matter how many big things they are able to buy. LITTLE THINGS COUNT She says that being able to take a taxi in the rain or when she is tired, being able to buy the new books, instead of taking them from a rental library, subscribing to several newspapers instead of just one, do far more to give her a feeling of living luxuriously than would owning an expensive fur coat or some other such “big thing’’ many women are willing to pinch pennies to have. And unlike so many women who live alone, she is a happy woman. For she lives by what is important to her — and aims to please her self instead of to impress the Joneses. The reason the life of a lone woman is so often dreary is main ly that without a man arovnd to say “So what?” occasionally, most women haven't the courage to live according to their own ideas. So they follow the dreary pattern set by the other women they know and' soon become as dreary as the pattern.
