Every man has days when his sus penders insist on getting twisted and his socks keep coming down.- How ard (Kans.) Courant. Should Remain Gentler Sex, London Women Say. London, June 3. Whether athlet io girls become healthy mothers is a problem now being hotly debated by woman doctors here. The question arose in an acute form when the pioneers of the recent agitation against athletics for girls held a conference in London and con demned games as tending to be inju rious to tht next generation. ' To such dimensions is the cam paign against feminine athletics growing, that it Is considered likely many colleges will shortly revise their games curriculum and that the present craze of violent exercise among all classes of British girls will be struck a fatal blow. , , The chief blow to the "muscle girls," as they are known here, was dealt by Miss Cowdroy, a college principal who has had experience of girls for three generations. She said: The girl trained to hockey, cricket, football and tennis suffers In after life. Sometimes the child suffers and sometimes the mother, and some times one of them dies. The Victorian girl was better physically than the modern girl. A great many girls brought up on present methods of physical training are bad tempered and soured in later life. Equally sweeping in her criticisms was Misa Radmar, head of a large in stitution for the physical develop ment of girls. "The typical athletic girl of to day," she said, with her wide hips and over-developed chest, is not el egant or fine. Big muscles are out of place in a girl. She should be edu cated to do the soft and gentle things of life." Medical support was given by Dr Arabella Kenealy, the celebrated doc tor. "Athletic women produce fe male offspring mainly," she said, "Seldom do they have sons, and these are apt to be puny and delicate." On the other hand, there is an In fluential body of medical opinion in favor of athletics for girls. Dr. Mary Scharlieb. the famous woman sur geon, cays: "Much of this criticism is nonsense. Athletics are excellent for girls, provided care is taken over them." "These criticismB are merely part of a plan to get women back to their old-fashioned atmosphere," com ments Dr. Jane Walker. "Athletics are exceedingly good for girls. The lie about puny children was nailed to the counter years ago. Investigations were made concerning the families of athletic women who had been to Ox ford or Cambridge. It was proved that they had had beautiful, healthy children and plenty of them. The trouble Is that some timid mothers are beginning to be fussy about their girls, and there is danger of healthy exercise being interfered with." Dr. Sloan Chesaer, another well- known woman doctor, said there was a tendency to over emphasize the value of athletics for both sexes. Boy and girls can play . pretty much the same games until the age of 14 or 15," she said. "Girls seem to be as good as boys until then, hut after that age the boys become relatively-Stronger, and other types of exercise appear to be better for girls. Dancing is a much better form of ex erciso for girls than Swedish drill, and I am also in favor of curythen lcs." , - ;' - The view of big business concerns employing huge numbers ot girls (most of whom in this country pro vide their personnel with grounds for games) Is expressed by a member of Lyons, the teashop concern. ' "The most efficient members of our staff are those who indulge in games," he said. "We have never found that the health of the business girl suffers from tennis, hockey or football." Even the staidest London newspa pers think the subject worthy of edi torial comment. The Pall Mall Ga zette complains that there exists a class of women school teachers who want girls' schools run on the lines of boys' schools, especially in the playing field. "Sex Jealousy is at the root of the mischief. The muscular development produced in girls by vio lent exercise may be undesirable, but more than any question of -eesthetics is the risk of , nervous strain and physical exhaustion, and the prob ability that the child-bearing capaci ty, of the woman of the future, will be seriously curtailed.". .: ' Methodist Church.
