How an Ambitious Pretty Girl Surmounted Very
Discouraging Obstacles to Success
Marion Wakefield, a beautiful debutante, sat in the
living room alone.
There had been much time spent
In boarding school. She was seldom
home on holidays, other than Christ
mas. However, tonight was Lincoln’s
birthday and she had been permitted
to come home. A few hours’ recrea

queried Mrs. Wakefield, entering the
living room.
“Of your kindness,” was the reply.
“We are having guests for dinner
tonight. Do you remember meeting
the Bentlys last summer?”
“The Bentlys of Chicago?” queried
“Yes,” was the reply.
“Mr. Bently and your father are
old friends. They had not seen each
other for sometime, prior to last
summer. They will arrive at eight
Mr. WTakefield was a man of good
character. He did not believe in edu
cation. His elder daughter had com
pleted the fifth grade. She was un
able to continue because her father
would not allow her to.
Having been very successful fi
nancially, he had opened a small gro
cery store. It was in this store that
the girls were kept very busy and
there were home duties to do also.
Marion, the junior member of the
family, was now in the sixth grade.
She had been taken out of school
several times to help with the home
work. Father Wakefield did not see
the necessity of continuing when he
was able to giv^ her what she wanted.
“But Father, something may happen
to prevent your progress hfere. In the
event that it does, what will become
of us? If we have continued in
school until we have mastered one
particular thing, we will at least have
something to look forward to,” she
had argued.
Mrs. Wakefield did everything pos
sible to keep her daughter in school.
In spite of the conflict with Mr.
Wakefield, she had succeeded in send
ing her another term.
Evelyn Bently was just about the
age of Marion. She was not disturb
ed by this particular handicap. Both
her parents were eager for her to ob
tain the finest education. Since their
first meeting, they had been very
good friends.
"I shall never be as successful in
life as you, Evelyn.”
“Why not?” queried Evelyn.
“Because I haven’t the advantage.”
"Oh, Marion! Do not be discou
raged. ‘As a man thinketh, so is he.’
Just feel that you are going to be a
i great lady some day. Say that you
are going to win. and put forth every
I effort to win.”
During the summer of 1921, busi
ness was quite dull. Mr. Wakefield
had adopted the credit system. This
created much confusion. He lost mon
ey and friends.
These conditions forced their par
ents to work very hard. Discouraged,
the elder married without accom
plishing anything worthwhile.
A trip to Maine and an introduction
to Evelyn’s brother Carle, made quite
a few changes in Marion’s life. There
were lots of girls up for the summer.
She became very popular and had
held a prominent and popular place
among the social set.
More determined than before, she
began planning for the future. Eve
lyn had said, ‘‘Put forth every effort
to win." She would do that. JPor
instance everybody had a talent of
some kind, then why not find hers
and use it? She could think of noth
ing better for the present.
On the following day, Marion began
her work. Somewhere she had read
an advertisement for song poems.
Here was an opportunity to try her
skill at song-poem writing. Remem
bering that she had composed a short
poem once for missionary day, gave
her more courage. Within a few
days she had completed a poem en
titled, ‘‘Dreams.”
It had been six months since Mar
ion Wakefield submitted her poem to
the Carlton Music Store. At last she
received a check. A letter also say
ing that they would consider any oth
er material submitted.
‘This is the happiest moment I’ve
witnessed in all my life,” she said. “I

“You are a wonderful girl, Mar

“Thank you, Dr. Bently.”
“My school days were alternately

Paris fashionists go down the entire
