Family Ties Growing
Stronger in America,
Woman Writer Says
•y lh« Atioclaltd Fr««»
NEW YORK, Aug. 8.—A lot of
people are worried about family
ties weakening in this country, but
Ardls Whitman isn’t. She thinks
they are growing stronger.
This New England writer and
lecturer will make a series of
speaking tours beginning this fall
to tell her ideas.
“After World War I, a trend to
ward a kind of family disintegra
tion set in.” she says. “It was
indicated by a rising divorce rate
and a decrease in the birthrate,
which was manifest in the 20s as
well as in the depression period.
Commentators said the family was
at the crossroads, women pre
ferred a fur coat to a baby and
the modern mother had become
a washout.”
Sees Trend Changing.
“Now I feel strongly that a new
change is taking place and that
the family is regaining its sense
of responsibility.”
In support of her argument,
Miss Whitman cites increases in
the birthrate and in home owner
“Also wre are now moving into
a period of lessened hostility and
antagonism betwreen men and
women.” she said. "The attacks
on women are growing much less
In the public press. There has
[ been an increase in sympathetic
| understanding of women’s prob
I lems by men. Men are more will
f ing to accept women wdth brains.
One recent poll reports men pre
fer brains to looks. But women,
the skeptical souls, still say they
think men prefer looks to brains.”
Tired of Grandma.
Miss Whitman, daughter of a
Nova Scotia parson, broke into
print a few years ago with a book
“I’m Tired of Grandma” which
delivered a sock at the comment
often made by men that grand
ma had more "stufT” as a wife,
mother, citizen and individual
than her granddaughter does to
day. After that she wrote a
number of magazine articles and
has lectured before numerous
Women’s blubs in the East. She
is married and is the mother of
two teen-agers.
Capping her recent comments
on the family, she added a word
about the future.
“There will be a less rigid divi
sion of labor between men and
women,” she predicted. “And we
shall be a little calmer about sex
—perhaps a little weary of it.
People are- going to be happier
sexually than they ever were in
j the past. Men and women will
understand each others needs bet
ter. The family may be moving
into a richer field of emotional ex
perience and a happier relation
ship with one another than ever
