BUY THEM A PAIR OF OUR
Hy G. Vere Tyler.
Instead of using every possible
measure to convince working girls
.hat they cannot live on the small
salaries they receive, wouldn't it bo
better for those reasoning upon the
subject to attempt helpful suggestions
until conditions are bettered?
Every girl who works is silently de
claring her desire for independence.
Instead of looking for a husband as in
the eld days, she looks for a "job."
These girls know when they start
out just about what these positions
pay. They accept that small pay with
their eyes open and have nobody but
themselves to blame .'or the discom
forts they have invited.
The subject at hand, though, is: Can
she live respectably on the wages she
has agreed to accept? I maintain that
she can that a girl may exist onthe
low wages paid her, in moderate com
fort and respectability, provided she
does not attempt to stand alone.
Should a number of girls combine
and put their wages together, into a
common fund, to meet their expenses
jointly, it could be done. For instance,
if from six to eight, or say, i!0, girls
should form a club among themseves.
take a reasonable flat and live to
gether and eat together, alternately
performing the duties that the situa
tion entails, it could be accomplished.
Is it not a fact that a man is able to
support a large family on. very often,
a very limited sum? Could that fam
ily exist if each member attempted to
live alone? It could not! It's tho
same with working girls.
The only possible remedy for work
ing girls to live comfortably on a small
salary is to club together.
In this manner a certain amount of
money could be deducted for personal
If these girls take an interest in
what each one can buy, in the matter
of clothing, with the money taken out
for the purpose, the competition to
look well would become simulating,
without the attendant envy that the
Also, in this manner, it would be
easy for the girls to detect the one
living, as to clothing and otherwise,
beyond her means, and they could os
tracize her from their club on the
ground of immorality, whereas in
standing alone the lie, while suspected
culd not be proven.
In such a case the girl who goes
astray lias done so through preference
and not necessity, and undoubtedly
might have done the same in idleness
and the shelter of the home.
A thousand other benefits could be
derived if girls would club together
and would thus associate. There would
be cheerful companionship. In case of
sickness they could nurse and care for
,ne another. They could read books
together, create mutual pleasures and
benefit. Through helpful companion
ship and healthy living, both of mind
and body, they would srrow in strength
There wouldn't be the necessity of
the occasional rendezvous -with "the
fellow." who nine times out of lt sup
plies "the square meal"' in anticipation
of value received. Eet the girls club
together to banish such "fellows."
The only wav is the sisterhood.
When "two or three are gathered to
gether." we are told, the way will be
