NEW WORLD GIRLS ,
OLD WORLD HOMES
Lack of Sympathy at Home,
Say Delinquents.
NEW YORK June s.—Wfis of wil
ful daughters have smote th- ears of
social workers for many years, the con
tention that “mother didn’t understand’’
being used as an excuse for ‘ wayward
ness.
Mothers have a way of questioning
girls who come in during the small
hours of the morning, who are unable
to tell where and how a certain young
man’s acquaintance was acquired—
that swain who doesn’t care to call on
old-fashioned parents, but who favor*
the street corner, or the dance ball as
a trrstlng place.
In the latest report of the New York
Probation and Protective society, re
cently made public, many girls haTe
given as their reasons for waywardness
lack of sympathy at home. They say
they were urged to marry men they could
not love, although approved by parents;
that mother couldn’t see why embroid
ery of an evening wasn’t superior to out
side amusements and that old world
Ideas were forced on them to the ex
clusion of the thoughts and manners of
the new American generation.
SAYS GOOD WORD
FOB MOTHERS.
But bore is some# one to put In a word
for mother, who is trying, after the way
of mothers, to “do her bit."
Miss Stella Miner, who is secretary of
the Girls’ Protective league, a branch or
ganization of the New York Probation
and Protective society, says one great
problem of today in social work is help
ing the foreign parents whose American
born children have the advantage by
virtue of a knowledge of our tongue.
“You'd really be surprised.” said Miss
Mirer, “at the number of such cases in’
which a young girl is mistress of the
borne She may stay out till long after
midnight and talk down the parents’
fears by saying she knows American
customs better than they.
“As for Americanization of parents and
family, both, I believe thit it must be
approached very cautiously. Wholesale
making over of personalities is unwel
come, unfair and can not be accomplished
hy announcing aggressively one’s inten
tion.
“We handle mary of what we term
home adjustment cases, gome of these
concern the wav-ward girl problem, and
many involve a girl who has done no
wrong, but who has difficulty in living
a modern life wtthont disturbing her
family's old world ideas.
“The best way to settle such a diffi
culty is through a girl’s mother. The
mother loves her daughter gind firmly
believed she is doing best to restrain
her. in many ways, which, on the other
hand, may be too drastic and repress
ing to Young America.
‘•By showing a mother 6uch as this,
that her daughter may gain wholesome
amusement and recreation which is con
sistent with old world propriety and
new world freedom, accomplishes a great
deal.
“Many cases have come up of girls
who have found employment as dancing
teachers in the ‘academies, ’ believing
they would thus meet nice men and have
a good time every evening. Os course,
they meet the men, but disillusion and
disgrace follow frequently.
DANCING “ACADEMIES"
SOURCE OF DANGER.
“Teaching dancing in public places
Is a most dangerous occupation for any
young -woman.
“Ju6t how dangerous only 'an organ
isation such as oari can ever realise.
The character of the girls la never in
vestigated by the men who employ
them, addresses are not kept and most
of the .work is done on a commission
basis.
"This Is where our organization i
able to bridge the gap between dull
home and innocent amusements.
“We here established for that' pur
pose the girls’ service league and the
Torkville Service club. Parents are
often invited and always are delighted
with the work.
“Frequent entertainments are given
at the clubhouses, girls meet other girls
and their friends, educational classes
are established and any girls In need of
help or advice may find it.
“The Important thing In the work of
the New Probation and Protective asso
ciation Is that it reaches dissatisfied and
restless girls before they become court
cases."
This Is the day of the child. The
most popular play of the closing theat
rical season concerned the trials of mis
understood adolescence.
In many homes difficulties arise, but
the mos# perplexing problems prevail
where a mother and daughter not only
•peak different tongues, but have dif
ferent Ideals of life.

Its youthful charm is finite unadorned,

So sheer and fine is the voile that it
rivals gorgette and chiffon.
Two rows of satirr ribbon finish the
lower edge of the overskirt and large
silk roses trim the hips.
Note the short Parisian skirt, which is
becoming more popular here every day.
Brocaded slippers and silk hose to

‘PUSSYFOOT POLL’
LONDON ARRIVAL
Parrots Putting Out Prohibi
tion Propaganda.
LONDON. June s.—Pussyfoot Poll has
arrived in London.
To discover the conversational powers
of a consignment of parrots he recently
received, a London bird dealer took them
one by one into a rooom and tried to
draw them'out.
One of the birds watched his efforts
for a while with head on one side, then
cried: “Keep off the drink keep off the
drink!” •
Then, encouraged to continue by the
surprised dealer, the parrot delivered it
self of the following shrill cry:
“Whisky weakens wills,
Barley water, barley water.
Hello, hello Stop your boozin!”
The dealer found that several of the
parrots had been coached in the same
way. ‘lt looks like anew form of propa
ganda by the prohibitionists," he told
the Weekly Dispatch “The
birds have obviously been weli coached in
the language, for they utter nothing but
advice against drink. They speak with a
soreness that proves they have had a
long and thorough training. Several other
dealers, I hoar, have made the same dis
covery recently.”
The American prohibitionists in l.en
don, however, deny all knowledge of the
mutter.
“.Such a method has not been resorted
to either here or in America.” said a col
league of Mr. “Pussyfoot” Johnson. “It
would only bring the oampatgn into con
tempt.
••The probability Is that the birds have
been taught the words by some joker, or
else picked them up simply by over
hearing propaganda speeches.”

LINGERIE DISPLAY
SHOCK TO JUDGE
Says ‘Tut-Tut’ When ‘Exhibit *
Was Introduced .
NEW YORK, June s.—Magistrate
mar in the New Jersey avenne court,
Brooklyn, recently declared that it may
be fashionable to wear short skirts, but It
was not fashionable or prudent to have
the petticoat snow. Mary Meyers, 18
years old, of 171 Herzl street, was be
fore the magistrate on a charge of petit
larceny preferred by Mrs. Annie Heck
and, dealer In women's suits, of 1722
Pitkin avenue, who alleged that she saw
the girl wearing one of three suits that
were stolen from her place on March 29.
Miss Meyers denied the charge.
Mrs. Heckand had a designer iii court
to prove that the dress worn by Mary
was of an exclusive design ordered from
a Manhattan firm. The designer showed
some marks on the dress and was about
to lift the hem and expose the petticoat
when the judge demonstrated: “Tut, tut,
better go into the chambers to do that,”
he said. Miss Meyers’ mother was in
court. She wore many articles of Jewelry
and said she was well able to dress
girl. The magistrate dismissed the
for lack of evidence.

Would Reduce Humanity to

AKRON, 0., June 5. —“The proposed

absolutely pernicious in its'influence,”
said Dr. Esther Bebout, commenting on
Hie suggestion by Prof. Paul Garnot,
noted French scientist, that European
nations be repopulnted by reso.rting to
a general matrimonial clearing house.
“iiiich a proposition is aiming at ths
very foundations of home life and in
fluence-and is putting humanity on the
same level as gnimals on a stock term,”
stie continued.
“We might have expected such a cold
blooded proposition from Germany, for
in Germany the interests of the indi
vidual have always been sacrificed tc
those of the slate, but that such state
ments should be coming from French
scientists is unexplainable, unless it !*
because the French have always looked
upon family life in somewhat loose fash
