. PAGE KINDLY WOMAN WHO WILL CARE FOR KIDDIES RY CYNTHIA GREY Xmong tnjf callers Friday, was a mother, t/oung and sad. On rifiifr side of fccr. clasping her slender fingers, was her pretty Httle daughter of 6, and a chubby, bright-fared son, 4 years old. Like the majority teho reach my office, sorrow teas gnaw img at her heart-strings. To make a long story short, the ravening claws of thr divorce demon had reached into her home and snatched lore and happiness ajeay. It is inevitable and final, she informed me; but as a true mother, she is going to make a brave stand to keep her kiddies in their home and bring them up normally. She mtist go out to work in order to do thus, and here's where someone can help. "I want to get some kind iroman to come and live irith me ami take care of my little ones while lam away," she said. "I wiU pay her " If that woman happens to be you, kindly communicate with me by calling me at Main ftOO, or address your com munication to The Star, and I will see that your application reaches the little mother. GIRL OF TWENTY-FIVE HAS DECIDED VIEWS OF LIFE Dear Miss Grey: 1 have watched with (rrvat interest the discussion bejrtin by "Three Girls." 1 think that every opinion that has been advanced was met with jnost positive Jpitradiction. One said. "Risk chance acquaintances," and "at was promptly condemned; another said, "Make your appearance all your pocketbook will warrant," and promptly some narrow-minded male wrote that he classed the well dressed jfirls as loose morally, and the plainer ones as re spectable. So the discussion has continued and no solution has been arrived at. I am not trying to offer one now. You see, I am just another woman wishing for acquaintances among nice men. I couldn't help noticing the letters printed—how narrow-minded most of us are! Who shall say because a firl dresses this way or that, therefore she belongs in such and such a class; because she gtxs to church, or the dance hall or the movies alone, that' she is absolutely in a certain class. For mercy's sake, can't a woman have some life or pep or taste, without being condemned for it? My Prim* Charmln# thall ba real nou(h. broad-minded enough, thai bt will not Judge me by any on# or two or threw traits of character, but by avery element of my character coaaldered together. I'm not afraid of mtaalng my chaaen man t»cau* my clothe* are In vogue or out. or bacauee I would or would not go to a public dance hall. There la one thine absolutely certain. I ahant meet htm by kx-Mr.it myarlf In the two by four I call my home, and con rutting the ooljm board. So hera goaa: Thla la a purely peraunal recipe, rem em bar I don't know how to dance. and I'm going to learn right awa 7. I sha.ll go to one of the danc Ing schools ta learn. I shall still go tamo 4« unattended, read a well .JMJanced diet of clsaalcs. standard j&ksn and new popular fiction. I ■BO taka an Intelligent Interest In 'kn (Mo question* and vote, and I shall also embroider my underclothes I shall. In short, try to be Intellec tual, without being a blue stocking, be frivolous, without being a foot, be Just* as JoOy aa I know how to be. and keep my eyea open for mm that look poasible. whether I meet them conventionally or otherwise. 1 hope I don t sound desperate, for really. I am not. Tou see.
