Advice to Young Girls
Many Friends
Instead of
Dear Annie Laurie:
I note your advice to some young
girls is: "Don't tie one's self down
to one friend, but. instead, have a
number of admirers."
Do you think that a young girl
about nineteen -would soon get tho
name of being a flirt if she were
peen out with a different fellow
every time? Not only that, but I
know some girls who seem to have
taken your advice in this matter,
until at the present time they have
half-dozen young men taking them
to the theater and other places.
This seems to me to be tho final
outcome of your advice regarding
"more than one friend." G. C.
NO. I do not think that a young
girl about nineteen would soon
get the name of being a flirt
If she were seen out with a dif
ferent fellow every time.
A young girl of nineteen has no busi
ness being seriously in love with any
one she's too young to "settle down"
and "make up her mind." And how is
she ever going to make it up. pray
telL if she' never meets more than one
And tell me true and tell me honest,
G. C, don't you think that a girl can
have a good time with a man and give
him a good time, too, without being in
the least In love with him? Isn't there
any such thing as companionship or
friendship In your scheme of life?
Why, I have a dozen friends men
who would go half across the continent
to do me a serious favor, and I would
make great sacrifices to be of real
help to any one of them and not one of
them ever thought of such a thing as
being In love with me for a minute,
"Can't a man enjoy taking a pretty
girl to the theater without having her
expect him to be madly In love with
her? "Why shouldn't a girl have some
half dozen young men take her to the
-theater if the young men want to ask
her and why shouldn't a man invite
any girl he likes to go to the theater
with him, or anywhere else that is re
spectable and interesting?
Get the engagement and marriage fad
out of your head. G. C, and get It out
quickly. It doesn't belong In a good,
sensibleihead like yours atalL
When the right man finds the right
girl there won't be any trouble about
the other men and the other girls. Un
til that time it is not only perfectly
right, but perfectly sensible, for a girl
to have as many friends aa she likes,
so long as they are decent, self-respecting
chaps, who respect her and who are
nothing but friends.
Brownie The worst way in the world
to "hurt a man's feelings" is to marry
him without caring for him. From your
letter I don't think you are In love
with any one. except perhaps yourself.
If I were you I would certainly break
tnv engagement, but I should not en
er Into another one unless I were pret
ty sure of myself.
Anxious If you enjoy having tho
young man in question come to see you,
why certainly let him continue to come.
But you have no possible right to
monopolize his attentions, and if he
wants to go to see other girls, you
may rest assured he will go, and noth
ing you can do will prevent him.
Doubtful It is distinctly improper to
dance with a man who has not been
introduced to you. The only permis
sible exception is when, at some pri
vate house, the hostess arranges a
"Paul Jones" or circular dance, for the
purpose of making those guests ac
quainted whose Introduction might have
been overlooked. In that case it is per
missible to dance with whomever you
chance to be when the signal Is given.
The fact of being both under the host
ess" roof is taken to be sufficient in
troduction. Unsophisticated It seems to me
that your mother Is mistaken in tak
ing such a puritanical stand, in
wanting to deprive you of Innocent
pleasures, particularly as you are
fiot a very young girl, but a woman
at some experience; but, on the
other hand, so long as your mother
supports you and your child you owe -

stopping at your house when you

him to stay elsewhere. In the case
of an announced engagement, even
that objection is removed.
Jessamine A woman of thirty

him. It not let him go. but don't

However, it seems to me that if you

Notable Accomplishment of Mrs.
M. L. Baldwin, in Completing
Law Course, Is Lesson to
"Average Woman a Fritterer,"
She Declares "Scalping
Taught Indian by Paleface in
Early Colonial Days."
In the June graduating class of
the Washington College of Law
there was a woman fifty years old,
Mrs. Marie L. Baldwin. This means
that she started the course in her
late forties, at a time when most
men say that they are too old to
But that is not all.
She is a Chippewa Indian, and
was born a papoose, and as she
terms it, "cradled on a board."
That her accomplishment is un
usual, and that her views on life
and the part that women are to
play in this day and age are of
great value to other women of her
own and of the white race follows
as a matter of course.
Her message is salient, and she
touches a vital spot when she says:
"The difficulty in this country
is not lack of opportunity, nor an
ability of women and young peo
ple to take advantage of it, but it
lies deeper than that. They take
advantge of their opportunity, but
they do not stick to it. So many
are the wdnderful chances offered
today, that it has become the
habit of many to go from one to
another but success only comes
through sticking bravely to one."
Value of the Law.
The most enlightening and helpful
study for any woman to take up Is that
of law. Every woman should be a
graduate In that line, for it reveals to
her the workings of a business and
thinking world of which she can other
wise have but little comprehension. It
helps her in her dally tasks, makes
her more broadmlnded. and gives her
