WRONG TO PUT TEMPTATION IN HKR WAY
I>ear Miss Grey: I have read a great deal of the dis
cussion, pro and con, in regard to allowing young girls to at
tend places of entertainment unaccompanied, and am at last
impelled to express my feelings in the matter.
'A Twentieth Century Young Woman," I suppose, Is 15
years of age or thereabout, since she says that is the age at
whirh girls acquire the faculty of distinguishing between right
I believe in trusting my children, but that does not mean
that I must trust «very i>erson with whom they associate, and
especially those they meet by chance at places of amusement.
"A Twentieth Century Young Woman" states that too
many young girls go wrong on account of parents being too
strict; but I think a great many more go wrong on account of
too careless parents. I hold that It is my duty to know Tl»o
associates of my daughter, and to see that their characters are
irreproachable. 1 also believe she should be permitted to at
tend ivs|H- ( tiiMe places of entertainment, but never alone when
late in the evening, as I think it wrong to put temptation in
her way by allowing her on the streets after dark, unless in
the company of myself or one whom I can trust with such a
treasure as I consider my pure and innocent girl to be.
And so I repeal emphatically, "it is not a question of trust
ing my daughter, but trusting her companions."

CHAPERONE QUESTION MUST BE SOLVED THROUGH
Dear Miss Grey: The chaperone question must bo solved
through the parents. There is nothing will make a good girl
X'» wrong or nothing that will make a limn «>■■ hoy tukit ad
vantage of any girl, good or bad, if he has had the proper
bringing up. A girl hue no business going any place with a
man she cannot trust, chaperon or not". A man bus too much
respect for himself, hit mother, and sisters, his sweetheart or
girl friends to place them in any suspicious light.
Too many parents fail to sit up and take notice until too
late. What is needed is more coiii|»anion>thip between fathers
and sons, mothers and daughters. Let them he chums and
there will be less need for chaperons and juvenile officers. At
the same time it will put public dance halls, noodle .joints and
such out of running. A FATHKIt.
* THE INSTALLMENT PLAN
Dear Miss Grey: Like all the rest, I come to you for ad
vice. 1 bought some furniture of a company and find it is nut
as represented and not in good shape. They refuse to ex«
change or do anything. What can I do? Can I make them
refund the money, or exchange, and how? If I sign a con
tract to pay $."> a month and can pay only one or two, can they
take it away from me? I hope you can answer this soou. I
read your column every day and know you are right
A.Even though the contract may so state, the company can
not remove the furniture from your premises without judgment
from the court. That is the law. The companies make the con
tracts; but the people make the law.
If you saw the furniture, and it is the same as you ordered,
you are at fault, too, If you were cheated, and if you contracted to
pay $5 a month, and keep the furniture, you should do so, and
profit by your lesson.
wnxnra to maiiky kithkk
I>enr Miss <irey: How would you go ulx>ut it to let two
girls know that you think enough of them to marry either one
of them if there was a chance? They have gone to another
town; hut write once in n while. < 'onld there he any true love
created with them. I like both of them veiy much, un<l would
like to hold their friendship, even if they would not marry me.
1 have only known them uhout three weeks, and they are such
jolly good company to be with.
You will pleuxe let me know through the imper. ' J. N. B.
A. —The fact that you are willing to marry either of them
shows you to be totally ignorant of the first principle in the game
of love. Better keep them as good, jolly friends, and wait until you
konw what love is before you begin to play with it.

Dear Miss Grey: What games are pluyed at a birthday
pnrty givcu by young folks (the youngest being 17 years of
age)? And also, what shall we serve to eat? Is it necessary
to set the table, or just pn.ss refreshments around.- Thanking
A. —Ask at the library for "Games," by Dame Courtney;
also "Indoor and Outdoor Games."
Serve sandwiches, filled mashed bananas mixed with chopped
nuts, lemon juico and a little sugar. Keep filling air-tight if
made before serving time. If you live near a store, you can
get a number of light boards on which dress goods are wrapped
and use them for lap boards for the guests. Either send invita
tions by mail or deliver them verbally.
AS LONG AS UNEQUAL STANDARDS EXIST, HI EX SHOULD BK
Dear Miss Grey: If men, generally sinking, worn as pure
nnrf honorable in tin ii intentions towards girls and women as
they simiiiii be, there, would be no need of surveillance of
mothers or sisters; but so lons as men and hoys believe that
■ girl or woman is their legitimate prey, that they <.ni use
every effort to gain a dishonorable end, and then go "scot free"
so far as society is concerned) just so long will it seem nec
essary for girls to need |wotection from them.
And while it is true that there are men and buys as hon
orable and true as the girls with whom they associate, they
are very few and far between, and even those men should not
object to the proper protection of the girl, until they prove
their honorable intention and character. JUSTICE.
MOTHKItS TRUST HIM, AND HE TRKATS THE GIRLS AS THEY
Dear Miss Grey: My opinion is that most of the girls want
some tough bny to travel with them, and after they get in
trouble they holler about the way they have been mistreated.
I am 28 years old and I find that a quiet, square fellow
stands a very |M>or show of winning a girl nowadays. They
call him a boob; but I will say that mothers have trusted
their daughters with me and tlu-y always have been treated
Just as they treated If they took no liberties I was just
tin- same with them. A YOUNG MAN.
THE MEN NEED THE CHAPEHOXE
Dear Miss Grey: As lam a mother, I want to say a word
In answer to "A Man," who Hays if a mother can't trust her
daughter she bettor keep her at home.
It is not so much that girls cannot be trusted as the nien.
No girl ever goes wrong of her own free will. Nine times out
of ten the girl's downfall is brought ahout by a smooth, deceit
ful tongue of a wolf in sheep's clothing, and then she is
turned down on every hantl and he is still a "nice young man."
Mothers may know their daughters; but it is another
thing to trust them with the majority of men or boys without
» rtiaiiriniic. So mothers, don't turn your lambs out among
the wolves without a shepherd. ONE WHO KNOWS.
CHAPEKONE OR NOT, OUR IJVKS ARE THE RESULT OP OUR
Dear Miss Grey: I have read with Interest several arti
cles Hlxnit mothers trusting their daughters out alone with
their gentlemen friends.
My opinion is that if a girl"s mind is right, if her thoughts
are pure, they will be backed up by clean conversations, which
Is the proof of pure thoughts, then there would be fewer girls
Insulted. To go alone is probably more safe "for the future
of some girls," as It gives them confidence in their ability to
take care of themselves. While with others it would be the
cause of their downfall.
It is the thoughts that act first, and In most cases it Is
r parently the man's mind that is evil; but a woman can think
, ist as bad thoughts as a man can. So if a girl will guard
her thoughts and think only pure thoughts, she will command
respect and will be her own best protector.
Men and women both are the result of their own think
ing and their lives are sure to be shaped in the image and like
ness of their thoughts, either for good or otherwise.

"WHO SHALL MARRY"
"Who shall marry?"
In a recent interview Dr. Adolf M<'yer, director of the
Phelps psychiatric clinic, at Johns Hopkins university, an
swered the question.
"The public," he said, "is apt to lay too much stress upon
heredity. It is not the disease, physical or mental, which is in
herited, but the susceptibility to that disease."
The state, therefore, he concluded, should not indulge in
wholesale interference to prevent marriage of persons not re
lated. There are. Dr. Meyer Mlvei, only two grounds which
■warrant state interference —feeblc-mindedness and disease.
These, says Dr. Meyer, may be inherited. Feeble-minded
people have feeble-minded children. Persona infected with cer
tain disease should not be permitted liy the state to perpetrate
"the terrible fraud of marriage."
Dr. Meyer goes far.
