London, Mar. 26. There are one
and a half nilllion women in this
country who will never hv h
chance of getting married, ts the
statement of Miss No rah March, edi
tor of National Health. In 1917
there was a surplus of 1.337.000
marriageable women over marriage
able men, and since then there have
been the war casualties of 1918.
Miss March says that emigration
will remove a few of these surplus
women while economic independence
will prevent women from marrying
men for the sake of a home.
"Many men and women In this
age of modern advancement." savs
Miss March, "are getting different
views from those held in the past,
and regard women's right to mother
hood as a supreme individual perog
attve. Having such a wide choice of
wives, the question remains as to
whether the men will choose the
best and strongest women, as upon
the women will depend , largely the
iiiture human race, since the best of
manhood htm been eut off. The
choice really rests with the woman
tor with her is the right of refusing
an offer of marriage."
