Financial Qualifications Are Frequently Considered Be

When It Is a Question of Matrimony
FRENCH marriages nro Bomcwhnt pe
culiar affair?, the Krenler pnrt of the
matter bclns arranged beforehand by the
parents. In fact. It 19 seldom Unit ft
French clrl sees her
sweetheart alono and
Unchnpcroncd before
the time of marriage.
Monsieur and ma
dame arc anxious
that their daughter's
life shall be one of
conjugal felicity. This
little matter they
feel they can best
attend to themselves.
And so they look about until they find a
young man whom they consider "con
vcnablo" from every point of view. The
money end of the marriage Is of much
Importance, and this Is carefully Investi
gated. The moral character of the youth
Is also taken Into consideration but hero
the French tend to be somewhat Indul
gent. "It Is only natural that ho should
sow his wild oats!" they any. nodding
their heads sagely and with a degree of
leniency which Is surprising to a
The "dot" of the French girl must
equal, or nlmost equal, that of her lius-band-to-bo.
Hut Into such matters tho
parents on both sides fully enter, and
the young people have very little to say
In the case! The French believe that
love Blioulil be well regulated and should
come after marriage on closer acquaint
ance! It does seem a risky way of set
ting about things, does It not?
If a woman shall gain tho whole world
and lack a husband, her life Is manquee,
according to the French Interpretation.
In other words, no matter how celebrated
she bo or how wonderful a personality
the may have, unless she Is entitled to
bo called "madame," she is n. complete
failure, both as a woman and ns a social
"But what If a woman marries ono who
suits her not at all?" asked an American
the other day at a little afternoon recep

In the great mojorlty. Her French was
a little awkward, but she made herself
understood. "Is the life of such a woman
not completely spoiled, united with one

Kewpee Takes a Ride
IITTLE Kewpee Celluloid lived on the
J broad shelf, of a city store, and he
wan quite content with hla home. In"
deed, he hardly remembered any other
home, for wtutn he wa made at the fno
tory he was wrapped up so quickly ant
nuggled down tight in 'a box that he
hart hardly a glimpse of the world ue
Im4 com to live In. And when he went
en the train and later In an auto truefc
to the store which wat now hla home
he couldn't see a single thing who could

He saw boy and Slri. old men and
young men, aud women of all ages and

they saw him. "They must like roe."
Mid Kewe Celluloid to himself content

And be was always particular to smile
back his say little celluloid smile.
One day after a clerk had taken Kew

"Better a life spoiled than rt life missed!"
was the unanimous verdict of tho French
women present. "A husband who suits
not too well, as one may say, that Is
what to bon DImi sends most women. It
Is the folly pure to expect that every
woman she shall obtain a husband per
fect; ns well think to obtain the jsros
lot; for that one must await tho Para
disc! Hut the woman who lias her child,
she has not missed her life."
Thli view Is somewhat crude to Um
average English and American mind
but, after all, the world contains many
women who Inunrdly cherish tho an mo
sentiments. When ono looks around and
sees the lll-nssorted couples who yet
seem to be Jogging along In comparative
harmonv, ono learns that many women
hold the opinion that "half a loaf Is bet
tor than no bread."
f-'ome Frenchwomen maintain the thc
orv that womankind Is divided Into two
classcv. the Mothers and tho Vnmplresl
"All tho women desire love," declared a
Frenchwoman, "but tho mother-woman,
alio desires It that sho may have tho
right to bestow It abundantly In return,
while the vampire woman possesses noth
ing to give, anil there remains In her only
the passion to devour yet another one1"
It strikes mo that In these modern days
n good many men seem to prefer the
vampire type and this is scarcely to bo
wondered at. For to the vnmplre, love
Is merely a game, on enthralling, delight
ful game, but still merely a game, and
to be treated as such. To tho "mother"
tjpe of woman, however, love Is a mat
ter all-nlx-orblng, and she, therefore, too
often plays desper
ately, Innrtlstloal 1 y
nnd with nil her
cards on tho table.
Tliero is no charm,

masculine mind In

Voternn Member of Bonrd of
Education Says He Will Vote
for Dr. Lucy Wilson's Ap
pointment to New Position
In the eyes of at least ono member of
the Board of education, motherhood it
not sulllclcnt cause for denying promotion
to a woman who has been a teacher for
30 years.
Ho la Simon Gratst, vlco president of tho
board, nnd Its oldest member In point of
experience. Mr. Oral declared today that
ho was enthusiastically In favor of the
election of Or. I.ucy Langdon Williams
Wilson as principal of tho South Phila
delphia Nigh School for Girls.
Mrs. Wilson has also been mentioned
in connection with tho vacant superln
tendency of schools, but several mem
bers of the school bonrd nro opposed to
appointing her to cither of tho higher
olllces because she Is a mother. She Is
now principal of tho William Pcnn Ko
nlng High School for Girls nnd head of
the department of biology of tho Phila
delphia Normal School.
Several months ago Mrs. Wilson was
nomlnnted for tho prlnclpalshlp of tho
South Philadelphia school and opposed
for that olllce by Dr. William F. Gray,
head of the manual trninlng depart
ment of tho Central High School. Doc
tor Gray nnd Mrs. Wilson received an
equal number of votes, and tho deadlock
hns not been removed.
Another election will soon bo held. Mr.
Grntz announced that he would light for
the selection of Mrs. Wilson, regardless
of any objections that may bo made
against her.
"There is a rulo of tho Hoard of Educa
tion governing tho employment of mar
ried women." ho said today. "If that
rulo Interferes with Mrs. Wilson's ap
pointment I shull gladly vote for a Bus
pension of the rules," he declared.
"IJo you approve of mothers as tench
cts?" he was asked. "That has nothing
to do with tho case," ho replied. "Tho
only consideration Is cfllclcticy. I believe
that Mrs. Wilson Is amply qualified for
the prlnclpalshlp. nnd if my wishes aro
enrried out neither sex nor nny other
consideration shall be Involved."
Mr. Grutz's views aro especially signi
ficant because of tho Inlluenco ho exer
cises In the Hoard of Education and he
cause ho was one of tho faction that op
posed Miss Kntherlno U. Puncheon sev
eral months ago In tho light which flnnlly
lcad to her appointment as head of tho
Girls' High School. It Is believed that
Mr. Gratz has had a "change of heart"
and that tho modern movement for tho
equalization of sexes has made him a ro

Business Men, Aroused by Use
of Emblem on Belligerent
European Ships, Will Ask
Congress to Act
Business men and shippers of this city,
nrouncd by the continued misuse of tho
Amcilcan flag by belligerent European
nations, will urgo Congress to pass n
law at tho next session in December
which will deny tho use of American
ports to foreign vessels which continue
this practice.
According to Jasper YcateB Brlnton.
ex-Assistant United States District At
torney, who has olllces In tho Commer
cial Trust Building, there is no interna
tional law or statute of tho United States
under which tho offenders can be pun
lshcu. Germany's protest, therefore, In which
sho alleged tho misuse of tho American
Hag on seven occasions by British ves
sels, cannot bo diplomatically considered
by tho United Stntes.
Recently several bills were Introduced
in Congress looking to the protection of
tho American ilag on both land and scu,
but in every instance they failed of
Congressman J. Hampton Moore, who
Introduced ono of the bills, said that he
would bo willing to co-opcrnto with
other members of Congress in tho enact
ment of a law that would prevent tho
desecration of tho ting.
"I And on Inquiry that there Is no law
of the United States which In any way
protects the American ilag on the high
seas," said Mr. Moore, "as against tho
improper and deceptive use of it by a
foreign or belligerent nation or by a
"In times gone by it was customary for
merchantmen desiring to savo their live3
in time of war to ralso the flag of a for
eign nation or of some other nation than
tho United Stntes, but that was In the
days of the old wooden ships, when the
conditions were vastly different from what
they are now.
"There is no law to prevent this dese
cration now, and I believe it Would be
wise and would certainly bo honorable.
It would certainly not condone to tho pcr
fldtty that men sometimes resort to In the
misuse of the Ilag on the high seas if we
had a law In the United States which
wruld provide that If any foreign vessel
used the United Stntes ports nnd adopted
the ruse of stealing the American Ilag
nnd thus sailing under false colors to de.
eclve anybody, it should not have the
further use of our ports."
In outlining tho law, Mr. Brlnton said:
"It Is clear that vessels, using the Ilag
of the United States as a ruse to escape
capture by tho German torpedo fleet,
violated no rulo of International law.
Tho Incidents, however, will serve a use
ful purpose If they direct public atten
tion to a situation In which all neutrals
aro deeply interested, but one which has
been completely neglected In Interna
tional conferences and conventions. There
are no clearly established rules regulat
ing the display by merchantment of Hogs
of another nation.
"In a general sense, however, the right
of a State to take action for the protec
tion of Ha flag and to prescribe tho con
ditions of its use Is well recognized, al
though In the absence of affirmative
aetton by statute or treaty no ground
for diplomatic complaint exists. The
matter l " wnkh, In the first In
stance, must be dealt with by the mu
nicipal law of a State or by a treaty.
"Calvo and Oppenhelm, two of the
leading European authorities on Inter
national law, both express the general
principle that men-of-war of any nation
may capture and bring to port for pun
ishment any foreign vessel sailing under
the flag of that State or nation without
authority, but the International law is
silent as to the enforcement or defini
tion of this general right.
"So far as affirmative action Is con
cerned, the record of the United states
is ont of complete silence. Congress has
never even taken aclioti to protect the
national Ask upon land. Waving Its pro

The Broken Pinion
I walked through tho woodland meadows,
Where sweet tho thrushes sing.
And I found on it bed of mosses
A bird with a broken wing.
I healed Its wound, and each morning
It sang its old sweet strain,
But tho bird with tho broken pinion
Never soars as high again.
Kach loss has Its compensation.
Thcro is healing for every pain,
But tho bird with tho broken pinion
Never soars us high again."

Philadelphia Is to have another BUffrago

the day which will decldo temporarily tho
fate of cqunl suffrage In this State.
The parado will bo held at night, an

More than 2000 organizations, largo and
small, have been asked to participate, nnd
many thousand suffragists and suffrage
sympathizers arc expected to be In line.
Tho parnde and pageant will bo called

and an nrtlstlo ami varied display of light

a monster rnlly will bo held.
Tho list of speakers hns not been com

"Tho scout movement Is ono of Incal
culable benefit to our young people for
girls as well as boys for If tho scout
principles, tho formation of character and
tho learning of citizenship nro necessary
for boys, how much more Important Is It
that theso principles should bo instilled
Into tho minds of our girls who are
destined to bo tho mothers and guides of
tho future generations. An attractive and
practical form of active educational pas
time is needed, nnd for this purpose tho
Girl Scouts aro organized.
"Tho Girl Scouts nnd tho Boy Scouts
are formed with similar purposes. The
former is modeled after tho latter, tho
boys' ritual being modified to meet tho
requirements of girls and to suit tho con
ditions of American life.
"Tho aim of the Girl Scouts Is to teach
girls to be helpful, happy nnd prosperous
women, capable of making good homes
nnd bringing up good children. These
principles nro taught them through pur
suits that appeal to them, such as games,
athletics and crafts At the same time
they aro Inspired with ambition and a
spirit of good - natured competition.
I Through outdoor exercise, such ns ath-
letlos, hikes and camp life, they nro taught
to conscrvo their health and care for
their bodies.
"Thero aro three classes of scouts
third class or 'tenderfoot,' second class
nnd first class. Before becoming a 'ten
derfoot' a girl must pass certain tests
prescribed by tho troop. After serving
ono month as a 'tenderfoot' sho may
try the tests for second class, and, when
sho has passed these, sho may try for
'proficiency badges,' which aro also
awarded through tests. Somo of theso
badges nro for excellence In ambulance
work, health, horsemanship, swimming,
music, serving, cooking, dairy work,
child's nurso and attendance. After
serving timo as a second clnhs scout a
girl may try for the first-class grade. To
enter this grado Is a high honor, as the
tests aro extremely dlfllcult.
"Each troop has its own colors. The
Daffodils have black and gold and our
crest Is a 'daffodil' Our uniform la khaki
und tho troop makes a lino shotting.
'"Tho scout law Is based on honor, duty,
loyalty, kindness, comradeship, purity,
cheerfulness, friendliness nnd thrift The
Girl Scout promises, 'to do my duty to
God and my country, to help others at all
times and to obey the Scout law.' When
a scout says a thing Is so 'On my Scout
honor.' I never question her veracity and
I have never been fooled. The underlying
object of tho whole organization Is to
turn out good, strong, useful women, and
I (Irmly believe that wo are accomplish

"The Great White Way"
I WAS sleeping peacefully when the
Zeppelins camo to Paris. Tho loud
whirring of tho machinery mid tho nolso
of firing soon woko mo up, however. For
the Zeppelins were qulto close to my hotel
nnd nlmost overhead. Jly hotel was In
tho Champs Klysces, near IArc do Trl
ompho, nnd tho latter seemed to bo tho
goal of tho Zeppelins.
It was nbout mldnlgnt when I heard tho
terrible whirring. I rushed to tho win
dow nnd gnr.ed out Into a clear, splen
did night. Two wounded soldiers In tho
private hospital across tho courtyard
wcro hanging out of their wlndoWB, and
they called cheerfully across: "Look up,
look up nnd you will sco tho Zcppclltisl
Tho Germans havo como!"
I looked up, but ns tho houses nro high
and narrow, saw nothing In the small
space of sky except tho glaro of search
lights. The nolso of tho Zeppelins wns
very loud, nnd then tho firing broke out.
Every moment I expected that wo would
bo blown to pieces. Yet that post nt tho
window was so fasclnntlng that nothing
could hnvo Induced mo to quit It and
seek refugo in tho cellar.
Tho firing beenmo more Insistent. Tho
sky was one blazo of lights. Although
tho courtyard below was deserted, ex
cept for tho concierge, who was out In
a weird "and wonderful garment "to seo
what ho could sec," tho streets soon
filled with people running.
A baby In tho next room woko up nnd
howled dli-mallv. Its nurso was appar
ently too alarmed to sootho it, for Its
howls continued.
Every now and then thcro wns a roar
llko that of cannon, nnd then tho steady
sound of firing. The whirring of tho ma
chinery seemed very close. Things went
on llko this for some time, then all nt
nnco I had n glimpso of n great black
body shooting over the blue space over
my hotel. Its whirring was like thunder.
A sudden retreat was In progress! Tho
firing grew fainter, then died nway alto
getherand the Zeppelin raid was over.
Tho dnm.-igc done had not been great,
although the Inhabitants got a scare. The
thrill of witnessing an affair of this sort
Is well worth the risk for only onco In
