What It Is What It Pays What It Leads To Miss Elizabeth Arnold, of the State-City Free Employment Service, Cleveland, O., writes these editorials from first-hand knowledge, gained by experience in employment work. During the war, when the Em ployment Service was taken over by the government and called the U. S. Employment Service under the Department of Labor, she had charge of the factory placement work, women's division. Her research into working conditions for women has made it her duty to keep in touch with opportunities, wages, conditions of work, training and qual ifications demanded, slack and busy seasons,' crowded and uncrowded. vocations and the future offered in new fields' for women. THE STENOGRAPHER BY ELIZABETH ARNOLD Of State-City Free Employment Service, Cleveland, O.' If you have a pood education but have no special Vocation you may not realize what a broad, many-sided field stenography opens to a woman. The Field " In the first place this is at present an uncrowded field. First class steno graphers with good education are commanding good salaries and are in de mand. In the second place stenography may be used as a crutch or a wedge by ambitious girls. The teacher, for instance, who wants to find summer work each season docs well to use one summer to take a thorough stenographic training. She then has no difficulty placing herself each summer. The high school or college girl who must work her way through school does well to do the same. m If a girl has ability and skill there are constant demands during the sum mer for substitutes to take the place of regular stenographers who are on their vacations. This substitute work usually pays very well. Many stenographers who are ambitious use their training as a wedge to pet into the field that appeals to them. By acting as secretary or stenographer in investment banking houses, real estate, insurance and advertising organiza tions a girl frequently has an opportunity to get a thorough knowledge of the details of tho business. By or whatever the field she is dealing with, a girl rot orUy makes herself more valuable to her employer, but xriay turn what otherwis would bo monotonous work into very valuable experience for herself. Stcnncraphers frequently come to the Public Employment Service and re quest to be notified "of any opening in these special fields simply because they know that in this way they can secure the business knowledge and training they need to succeed. A prominent judge recently advised students who Intend to become lawyers to us a summer in their first years of high school to take a thorough course in stenography as this would enable them to getwork In law offices every summer and give them the most valuable training and experience they could possibly get In preparing for their profession. Qualifications If you are ambitious and are going to be a stenographer get the best edu cation you possibly can. Few employers want stenographers under 18. Go through high school by all means. It you are forced to leave school go to night school. Then select your business course with the greatest care. A poor training is almost worse han none at all. Business colleges vary greatly in their standards. Be sure before you pay a big tuition fee that you know what the public schools offer free of charge in commercial courses. The things that will put your salary ahead are good general education, training in KrgliFh, spelling, punctuation, the inclination to be accurate and neat, the ability to hold words in memory, and businesslike habits. A training in stenography will never handicap the ambitious, capable girl with executive ability. Women holding such important positions as the wo men doing merchandising research work for the Bush Terminal Co., and women en good salaries traveling for the Department of Labor, all have their type writers in their rooms at the hoteL As for salary, many good stenographers are now drawing higher salaries than some of the women doing executive work. Toung workers who have lit tle experience with dictation are being started at about $75 a month. Women with experience are drawing from $115 to $150 a month and up.

"You can go into the show and if you don't like it you can get up and go out." War brides figured in 40 per cent of last year's Keno divorces ending marriages of haste and passing excitement! In nearly half our states it is not even necessary to register a marriage. Just think of it! In a single year the divorces granted !n America were more than double the number in 20 European countries com bined. We have 48 separate divorce laws one for every state. Did you know that in some states if you marry a divorced man you can later be named as his correspondent? At the begin ning of a trip in one state you may be a man's wife and at the end in an other state the law may look on you as a dishonored woman. If you take your children out -of one state into another they may be considered ille gitimate. You can be the legal wife of two men, of either of them, or of neither at the. same time. You can be both single and a bigamist at the same time in some states. Helen Ring Robinson's discussion of marriage and divorce in Pictorial Review for Oc tober discloses some amazing, ludi crous and tragic results of our chaotic divorce situation. She gives a graphic pen-portrait of Reno, the divorce -boom town, what it is and what it does. rooms that everyone fs sure are good to eat. These are the little button variety and the large solid puffball. If one gathers mushrooms in pastures by the wayside it is necessary to be ab solutely certain that the mushroom is edible. If there is any doubt in any mind consulted, don't use the mush rooms. Only cultivated varleti'es are sold in market.

ON WITH THE "BOB" LET CURLS BE UNCONFINED! - f 1 V j - BY BARBARA BURKE Editor of ."Beauty Culture" NEW YORK No style of modern hair dressing has appealed to all ages as much ns the "Bob," which seems even to be growing i'n popularity. Evenin- Coiffure It was Irene Castle, at the time of her dancing fame, who first introduced this cut in America, Her coiffure il lustrates the effect of bobbed hair when dressed for evening wear. It seems to be worn to advantage better with an evening gown than anythi'ng else, particularly if one has an animat ed expression. In this case the hair has been parted slightly on one side and combed back, so that It droops slightly on the forehead. To keep It in place a fancy bandeau Is Used. Well defined loose curls are arranged all around the head, whfch lends a soft ening effect to the features. Artistic Bob ' Marion Davies illustrates how well formed features, a-full face and plump neck are set off by the bob. In this case the hair is parted on one side and combed over the top of the head so that it falls naturally without the necessity of keeping it in place with a bandeau. The hair is not allowed to grow too long, the ears beaing barely covered and the loose curls falling gracefully in place. Edna Walsh, a Mount Vernon so ciety girl, has adopted an artistic bob.

The trulh about Benji'e's romance was known to but four or five persons. He was supposed to have married a wife in Canada just before he died. Not even Katherlne's mother, much less the public, surmised her secret. Katherine had seen her child sev eral times at the Lorimer house and more thaan once had I watched her shrink away from her own flesh and blood! Never had I known her to be tray even a normal interest in her baby except as a bait to attract Bob! And so when Bob announced that the ti'ger woman had requested him t-.i call to talk about Babs, I wasn't the least bit mollified. I had gone through similar experiences, and I had been awfully unhappy, and Bob knew it, and if he loved me at all, he ought to spare me a repetition of my old misery, I said to myself, then aloud: "You have a business office down town. Bob, where a woman can call in the day time!" "With twenty employes ready to chatter if the city's famous beautjj came to me instead of going to her father's lawyers! Tou know, Jane, her lawyers never had her secret." "Yes I know," I assented. "Katherine is determined to take Babs away from mother," Bob con tinued. I laughed sarcastically before I spoke: ""Katherine is erratic and she doesn't intend to acknowledge her baby," I rr.urmured. 'Believe me, friend hus band' I shut my lips suddenly to keep from add.ng: "She makes her sin and her shame an excuse for seeing you, a claim upon your sympathy!' Ugh!" Aloud, I concluded: ' Mother will not give the baby up." "It would, of course, be a good thins for the child's own mother," Bob pro tested. "Nonsense! Katherine isn't fit " But what use are words in a great emotional crisis? I -woulrf.net enlighten Bob as to Miss Miller's character. -1 couldn't, I t'i myself, because he didn't care to have the. truth about her!

VANCE It was a loan of life. The mother lent her son to God, and the loan was for h'fe. Thus runs the story of Han nah and Samuel. '"For this child I prayed, nnj the Lord hath given me my petition which I asked of Him; therefore, also. I have lent him to the Lord; as Ions as he liveth shall he be cnt to the Lord." Did she have any right to negotiate such a loan? Is it olng too far for even a mother to try to shunt life into a particular groove. It would fecm that a mother should possess some rights and some author ity. We' vaguely recognize that she has, for no man ever gets so high and mighty but he retains a sneaking con viction that his mother has authority to take him down. . At one of their annual gatherings, the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers proposed this toast: "Our mothers those faithful tenders, .that never misplaced a switch!" Surely after all the sacri fices a mother makes for a child, it i3 not sacrilege for bcr faith to lay him on God's altar and say : "He is thine." It is a great thing for a mother to do. Would that more would follov petition -wth dedication! It is some thing to clamor at God s aitar tor what He can do for your child; it is greater to be concerned with what your Child can do for God and his generation.

Perhaps some may feel that It is rough on Samuel. Should not one be left fre to choose his own career? Was not religion crowded in on him overmuch? His individuality was 'dis regarded. His personality was not al low 1 to develop according to -his per sonal preferences. Some men talk this way about the parental love and faith which sought to steer their lives God ward. They are bad now because they had religion rammed down :n their childhood. One wonders what saints these worthies might have become if only they had been let run wild. If Samuel ever felt this way about his mother, he was not graceless enough to say so. No ooubt ho had abundant op portunity later to choose for himself, but he validated his mother's loan. Children have their rights, and they are to be respected. But parents have a responsibility, and it is not to bo shirked. Life is a Ftrancce and complex thing. Character is played upon .by myriads of subtle influences. It is not an accident that the child Is bound to his mother during life's most formative period. It is that the poter may fash ion the clay for shupe and use.
