Jones on the mound, and the second ball pitched to Suttles was knocked out of the park for a sec ond homer. Housewife Puts Finishing Touch On Heated Controversy Over Question Should Married Women Work? Says She Worked from Necessity Not Choice By JACKIE MACK The letters I have received in this past three days re garding the age-old question of whether married women should work or not convinces me that we are by far, too lack ing in wisdom to determine. The arguments continue to re peat themselves, and few try to find original twists, so I sup pose that the more important factors have been introduced. As a result of all the controver sy, I have decided that there is much to be said on either siue, and indeed, much has been saiu. The only conclusion one mav reach is that each problem in which mar ried women are tempted to wo out side of the home to seek se-'.ploy ment should be weighed upon its own merits. Here, for instance, we have a letter from Mrs. M°.c Mc Shann, which protests that she really did not want to work, but really, Mrs. McShann’s letter leav es no choice. Rear! for yourself: My dear Jackie Mack: I realize that your column is not one for the lovelorn, much as I realize that this letter, '"hen I have finished. w ‘l read 1'kc one. I can speak from experience about both sides of this question. When I was sixteen, I married a boy whom I had met in school. I can’t remember now whether I was in love wdth him or not. The nain thing for me then was to get away from home. He was only two years older than I, and in my class. Neither nf us had finished high school, but when I saw the opportunity to leave home, I grab oed it. I had always had to work hard at home, though I had never been trained to do anything especially well. I did know how to sew. Af ter we were married, my husband and I started to work on a farm. He was dissatisfied, and wanted to take up engineering, so we moved to a place where he could learn that. Both our child ren were born about this time, and the next twelve or fourteen year:, still stand out as a night mare to me. I hope they never re alized how close they were to be ing hungry. I had done no work except an occasional piece of sewing since we left the farm, and my husband wasn’t the type of man to shoulder responsibility seriously. I am not complaining about this, for I suppose it was his makeup, but it was so hard for me to try to manage through those days. And then came the real test. The little town where we lived did not have an accredit ed high school. Although my hus band was working at a position that paid him better than #200 a month, and though I told him I would do without the things I had wanted, he did not feel able to send the children to a city nearby where they would receive accred ited training. And then, Miss Mack, I went to work. I had beg ged and pleaded with the man, to no avail. I sent them to high school, and my husband began to neglect not only their bills, but mine also. I got a job and I kept them in school for four years like that. Their fa ther commended the good grades they got, but made it no easier for them. I still had to answer when they cried for nrettv clothes and new books, when thev wanted va cation trips. When they had finished high school, I think their father was jealous because they had gone far ther in school than he. He was willing to send them to the state university, but I had selected an other school that was much more expensive. He put his foot down and I took another iob in addition to the one I had. This one was political, and kept me away from home much of the time. It was then I noticed that my husband seemed estranged. I couldn’t take time out to care, then, Miss Mack, for the children needed me much more urgently than he did. I sent them to college and have never had cause to regret it. All this time, their father was earning al most $250 each month, even thru the depression, and if he ever gave his daughters a pair of shoes, I don’t know it. He did not even pay their railroad fare to and from school. When they finished they worked to try and pay back some of the money I had had to borrow outside of my home to pay for the things they had wanted and need Hits Homer rr homer in the final game with the Philly Stars aided the Giants in winning 18-1. UURKEY /5)TEARHy Knockout Victor International and in tercity Golden Gloves heavyweight champion, entered the ring last Friday night at White City for his first profession al bout, the fans all yelled for'a knockout. And that's exactly what Lorenzo did by flattening George Cerosky of Akron, Ohio, in the second round of a scheduled six-round bot. ed. I think it is creditable on my part that they never wanted for anything that I knew about that they didn’t receive. Now, my children have b?an out of school for several years, and do not need to depend on me for any thing. They don’t need their fa ther any more. But I still work. I cannot regain the old feeling of dependence I had before the child ren grew up. I don’t know wheth er my husband would support me if I should ask him to. or not. Now, Miss Mack, twelve or fourteen years ago. when I started to work, I had not planned to. I wasn’t prepared to do anything. I determined that my children should not be brought up «5 1 was, and the only way I could pre vent that was to work and send them to school. I could have been much closer to them. I know, and more like what a mother is sup posed to be, if I had not h?.d to win the bread at the sam« time. You can’t tell me tha I did wrong, though I know at times ’t my struggle I was keeping three or four single girls out of jobs. But, for my pains and struggles, I found my own daughters so well prepared that they nudged out the married women when thev sought jobs of their own Working isn’t a thing you can decide off hand like the letters in your paper try to do. I still say that married women should stay in the homes, and especially when they have families. On the other hand, when the married woman finds that the man she married isn’t fending for her and her chil dren, when they need things that they don’t have simply because a man won’t take the responsibility, a woman has to swallow her pride and her lack of knowledge and training, and make a place for herself. It is a case of choosing between two evils, when she is placed in a predicament like that, and a mother really has no choice when it comes to the welfare of her children. Women, stay in your homes if you can. If your children need you or your husband won’t should er his responsibilities, go to work with a bang. You may lose your husband, but you won’t really have time to miss him. Yours with a vengeance, Mae McShann. And the stark realism of Mrs. McShann’s letter causes us to draw the curtain. We realize what her sacrifice must have cost her, and we cannot help thinking how many married women may be undergoing the same trials—mar ried women that you and I have censured for having a job that might be given to some single girl.
