Cynthia Grey
. 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*

bacauee I would or would not go to
a public dance hall. There la one

goaa:
Thla la a purely peraunal recipe,

dance. and I'm going to learn right

and keep my eyea open for mm that

conventionally or otherwise.
1 hope I don t sound desperate,
