) jiFASEaam WOMAN'S PA GE 939r3 I I (1! i Dorothy Dix Talks jj THEY ARE SISTERS UNDER THE SKIN. ji S : By DOROTHY DIX, The World's Highest Paid Woman Writer j; In one t his cynical and amusing SB-j plays, Shaw says of a certain womar S that sho -was such a good mother thai 'SiH Gno was hardly human. jRB" Bo that as 11 mav there is certainl b9' something about motherhood thai wB' j seems to rob the average woman oi j almost human intelligence when il IyjB3iP .' comes to dealing with her own off I v v f 8PrnS- She may be a wise and sensi 9 m I ble "vvoman wlth clarity of vision and J sound judgment in all other matter I Wmt I ln lfe' ut wnero uer children are I 'HB concerned she takes leave of all sense I isB j aDC eason anc Decome3 blinder than B itmL: I cannot even see that her own I JB. I children are of the same flesh as all 1 Wmr I humanity, subject to the same weak- 'mm I nesscs and temptations. She visions IH her own as little godlings living on a flH I plane far above. The hardest thing in MM J the world is ever to convince a mother Jm I that her child is at fault, and when MM I she is convinced of it against her will, jjHi f she Invariably lays the blame on some 9B j other child who led her precious inno- B; J cent darling Into wrong doing. Wm ( This settled conviction that every I mother has that she has hatched out S I a perfect white swan is the greatest ,aV I barrier that stands in the way of mm I women helping their children and H mm I protecting them. The mother wants H -aH her cni to be'perfect and she shuts H mm I ner eyes to s Perfections and re- 9 S I fuses to see them. She never takes B SB J stock of her child, calmly and dispas- Jmm I sionately, as sho would of some other H mm child; she never recognizes its bad 8 mm I qualities as well as its good qualities, alE I so no child is denied whatever oppor- I ' 'mSSt tunity there might be to have his I R f weakness physical, mental, or moral I all amous alienist once told me that B 9 j this inability of mothers to see their W J children as they are, doomed innumer- 1 J able men and women to go through M 1 life hideous deformities or gibbering m I idiots. Surgery can do wonder in M I straightening out soft little bones. I v Skilled alienists can perform miracles M I In fanning the flicker of intelligence . I into a brighter flame in a baby's w f brain. But the mothers will not see M I that anything is the matter with their , m I children until the time to change has M I gone by. ! m I This strange obsession of mothers: 9 that their children are not like other I I children Is the real reason why 1 ! j mothers are so careless about protect- i II ing their daughters, and why they fail i Ifl so signally to teach their girls the i Hi things they should know about life. If There is no woman who is old enough ! M to have daughters who does not know j H the temptations that assail a gin, and ''I the pitfalls that lie in wait for her (mk feet. There is no mother who could ! .not give the wisest and most helpful advice to her neighbor's daughter, and who could not present the girl across the street with a perfect code i of conduct that would insure her, safety anywhere if it was carefully! followed. ( But this same mother will never j say two words of real heartfelt coun sel to her own daughter because she 1 is so perfectly convinced that her' daughter doesn't need it. Mamie Smith j may be tempted by the bright lights and the desire for pretty clothes, and joy rides, and good times. Sally j Jones may fall so head-over-heels in love with some handsome scamp with a glib tongue in his head that she may , be as wax in his hands. Mary Tomp kins may be a wild, thoughtless, reck less, harem-scareiu girl who thinks it! dashing to show she'e a dead gamej sport by smoking cigarette and drink-1 ing high balls, until some day shei drinks a little too much and goes reel- ing along the street. j Every mother, except those con-j cerned, can see the danger that lies , in wait for these girls, and could 1 guard them against it, but eachl mother regards her own daughter as such an impeccable saint that shei doesn't consider that she needs any danger signs erected in front bf her. Other girls have undisciplined natures, other girls are the victims of their in-1 fatuation for men, other girls long for' the flesh pots, but not her own daugh-J ter. Ooh, no; every mother is con vinced that her little girl is as cold and passionless as a marble statue, nnd a model of discretion, and a pat tern of modesty. So what's the use in warning a girl against the things she couldn't possibly want to do anyway? ' This inability of the mother to realize that all girls are sisters under A very attractive and comfortable i rest robe is the one shown. It is of I a delicate French blue velvet and ' tximmed at the collar and cuffs with I an edging of white fox fur- the skin, with the same emotions, and impulses, and desires, not only keeps mothers from teaching their daughters how to protect themselves against themselves as avoII as against men, but it prevents them from seeing when a girl is in danger in time to stop her and save her. For in the curious mother psychol ogy when one's own child docs a wrong thing the wrong immediately becomes right. Or at least innocuous and harmless. Questionable relation ships become entirely proper, and con duct that in other girls would be de serving of the severest censure be comes beyond criticism. A curious illustration of this mother point of view has recently come under my observation. A beautiful and bril liant young girl is carrying on a vio lent flirtation with a rich married man. The man's automobile is at her disposal. He makes her magniticent presents. They are seen together con tinually at fashionable restaurants. And incidentally the girl is breaking up a home in which there are little children and ruining another woman's life, for the man's faded, middle-aged wife is naturally eating her heart out In jealousy of her fair jviung rival. A friend spoke to the girl's mother about it and asked her why she did not put a stop to the affair and, at least, do something to save her daughter from being, mixed up in an unsavory scandal. The mother was highly indignant. She' declared that nothing but the purest and most ex alted friendship existed between her daughter and the man, and nobody ex-, cept someone with an evil mind could , see any harm in a girl going about' with a poor man who was misunder stood at home. Indeed, she seemed to regard it as! a highly philanthropic action on her' daughter's part to cheer the man up , by joy riding with him and going toj cabarets. j Yet that same mother wo.uld havei seen clearly enough the wrong in an-' other girl sustaining such a relation ship to a married man, and the danger to the girl herself.

It isn't true. It is merely a dope dream, born of fanatical mother love, but it is the greatest obstacle that there is in the way of the sane and safe rearing of children. j nn I s Good Food Which Costs Little V ' Following are several novel recipes for appetizing fish dishes.

Evening gowns show a decided preference for velvet as their basic material and this is. no excep tion. This chiffon velvet frock shows to good advantage the possibilities of that material, whose softness lends Itself to graceful drapings while the bright rich texture makes ornamenta tion almost a non-essential. In this gown the bodice is held in rather closely about the waist and two blunt points confine somewhat the full ness over the hips. nn Miss Martha Boll, a high school girl, is working as a freight clerk in the Glassboro, N.

Industrial Workers of the World were compared to the early Christians, were extolled as not being one-tenth bad men, and ministers of the Congregational church were enjoined to lend succor to them in an address here this afternoon by Rev. Sydney Strong, Seattle, Washing ton. Ke spoke Under the auspices of the National Council of Congrega tional churches of the United States, in session here. Rev. Strong told of his intimate ac quaintance with a large number of I. W. W.'s of visitations he had made to their members in prison and gener ally of an admiration they commanded in him. "Their leaders are men of beatific countenance. They believe in a beau tiful philosophy of non-resistance, and are bound to a cause they think is right They are idealists and they hne a remarkable solidarity of purpose.) They hold to a people of 'fold your arms' a remarkable policy of non-re-, sistance. Their internationalism and inter-racialism is according to the most laudod standards. Their organization is open to all alike." Distribution of wealth in this coun try was deplored by Rev. Strong In forty American cities, he said, it has been found two per cent of the people control sixty per cent of the wealth. After deolarlng that present civilza tion is capitalistic throughout and tha: the lawyer, preacher and teacher are allied with the capitalistic system, Rev. Strong, turning to the war, said democ-1 racy in Industry as well as government I must come after the closing of the' present conflict. j rtr MAINTAINING TEE VALUE OF BONDS WASHINGTON. Oct. 15. Treasury officials, concerned over the downward tendency of the bond market as an out growth of liberty loan financing, have determined to take steps to check the shrinkage in giltedged bond values so far as consistent .with governmental action and sound financing. To this end the comptroller of thei currency last night issued a statement anouncing that he had instructed all national bank examiners that they need not require national banks hold ing high grade bonds of unquestioned intrinsic valiro and merit to charge them down to present abnormal figures but to exercise "an Intelligent and con servative discretion," as to the prices at which the banks can continue to carry such securities. This action, it Js thought, will tend to prevent undue tightening of the I money market with the further decline of bonds, a process which if continued for a considerable period of time might lead to heavy losses by the investors in such securities and to the conse-; quent detriment of the properties upon which they are, issued. Similar action was taken by the! comptroller at the outbreak of the Eur- opean war when security values drop-! ped precipitately to low records. , nn Women workers making uniforms I for the Mexican soldiers receive $3 1 per da'. . i Everyday ' No voman who Is well and young should feel aggrieved if a man keeps a seat in a ctrect car, while she has none.

He will undoubtedly ex- change a few words with the lady dur ing the process; and he should have his hat off Just as he would if he were ; standing in the same restaurant con-1 versing with her.
