(1! i Dorothy Dix Talks jj
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

IyjB3iP .' comes to dealing with her own off

I isB j aDC eason anc Decome3 blinder than

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

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

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 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.
Isn't it about time that mothers
waked up from their hallucination

NEW YORK. 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.

COLUMBUS, Oct. 14. 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
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. ,

No voman who Is well and young
should feel aggrieved if a man keeps
a seat in a ctrect car, while she has
none. It is not by right, but by privi-.
lege, that she has the courtesy extend
ed, and in the twentieth century wom
en do not wish to be treated as though f
they were the weaker sex. .

Jack: A gentleman should remove'
his hat while taking an ice cream i
soda at a counter if he is accompan-'
ied by a lady. 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. If there is no con-
venient place to lay or hang it, he
can always tuck it under his left arm. ,
