    " When a Girl Marries"
A New, Romantic Serial Dealing With the Absorbing
Problems of a Girl Wife
(Copyright, 1919, King Features Syn

"Don't call Terry—yet," said Betty,
shyly. "I want to talk to you first."
" Then I'll get all comfy in a chair,"
1 replied, rising from my kneeling posi
tion by the bed, which I kept fearing
I'd joggle and so disturb the bandaged
right arm lying in a strange mechanical
"cradle" above the coverlet. "Oh, Betty,
dear, I'm so glad I remembered Miss
Moss. Tony made me by playing de
tective and asking Jeanie where she'd
met you first."
"You clever Princess Anne —to fig
ure that Miss Moss is my 'friend in
need.' " murmured Betty, with shin
"Your friend in need—l wish 1 bad
been to be that friend, Letty
B." I answered, remembering what
Bettv had called herself the time she
helped me buy Virginia's house Present
—the very day I had first reached out
humbly asking for the friendship I had
once been too stupid to take.
Bettv must also have remembered.
For a minute she lay quite still, smiling
at me wistfully. Then she spoke, with
a husky little catch in her throat:
"I asked you to promise that if you
ever needed a friend you'd come to
Betty B. And now it's Betty who needs
the friend, and you've come—so far—
to me"—
Her voice trailed off. and in another
minute my splendid, brave, proud Betty
was sobbing for all the world like a
tired little girl.
1 slipped to the floor at her left side
and pillowed her head against my heart,
smoothing her soft hair and murmuring
to her as if she were my own little
sick girl.
After a minute or two Betty lay
still and then a muffled voice spoke:
"I'm so tired. Anne—so tired!"
"I know, dear," I answered. "You've
borne the pain and the fear all alone.
I used to see you press your hand to
your lips and wonder."
Betty sighed and snuggled closer.
"It was vanity."
"You big baby! You regular woman,
you!" I replied. "But I'm sure it
was more than that. The pain"—
"It was awful, Anne !" Betty shud
dered. "That scar burned like fire, and
it seemed to be dragging my fingers
back and twisting up my arm. I
couldn't brush my hair sometimes. And
1 kept thinking if I lost the use of my
hand—l used to put it to my lips to
cool the pain."
"The pain's gone, dear. And your
arm's going to get well," I said.
Betty's long gray-green eyes flashed
me a quick, but intent glance. It made
me realize how strangely our parts
were reversed. Here was comforting,
brave, self-reliant Betty as if she were a
hcdpless little girl instead of the splendid
woman she had always shown herself
to be. But in spite of my consciousness

war by. telling him what I'd do if
I wer e a man. He didn't want to

"Now listen, dear," I interrupted
gravely, "Atherton Bryce died splen
didly. You gave him a chance to go
like a man—with his airplane for
a funeral pyre. Not just drooping
of sickness, drying miserably, rusting.
You made him a hero —that's what
you did for him!".
'"You think that, Anne? Really?"
"I know it, Betty B. There's a
man you were square with. And 1
know how square )' ou can ' ,e

"Are you scolding, Anne? I'm sick,
you know. Scolding from you hurts."
"Yes, I'm scolding, dear. You can
be square. You were with the man
who is dead"
"And you think I'm not—with Ter

Hushing cheek in my shoulder.
"Not with Terry. Not with Betty,"
•I replied.
"How do you mean. Anne?"
"Why, dear, you love Terry. And
you aren't brave enough to risk life
again. You're living in a gray-ghost
world of pain and remembering. And
Terry's out in what ought to be sun
light, but what is all darkness be
cause he's so lonely for you."
"Oh, Anne—don't, don't! I can't
bear it! I told you once that I al

friendship was the best. Kver since
1 saw Terry tumble down that hill
in No Man's Land with shell and
flame back of him, I've felt as if
I'd seen my poor Atherton falling—
falling in his flaming car. It was
an omen."
"Well, if it was an omen," I ven
tured daringly, "I can only inter
pret it to mean that Terry was saved
for you—and the other, not being

and afraid about your arm."
"Anne !"

| There's an espect of the life of

wish all mothers would consider. I
It's the homelessness of living at!
1 home.
j The homelessness, I mean. of
| living with parents who, absorbed!
i with other anxieties, haven't real-;
| ized that a self-supporting girl needs!
I more than a room to lodge in and!
j food to eat.

j l'roni young men.
Does this sound like a simple and,
| shallow grievance on the part of
jthe hundreds of young girls who
wistfully give it expression?
To my mind, it's a very serious
The plain truth is that a girl who,
contributes to the maintenance of a
household, as these wage-earning!
girls do, isn't treated squarely when '
i she isn't given the privileges of a '
: home.
She knows this herself. In many!
cases, she's on the point of leaving!
home because of it. So Ithink it is, 1
time that mothers faced the ques-!
tion too.
To be sure, mothers are usually I
overworked. We all know that. Anil'
the claims of the younger children
are very pressing. So it's quite
natural that they should lose the
sense of i-esponsibility for sons and
daughters who seem old enough to
take care of themselves.
Mothers' Problems
Mothers know that flats are
usually too small for the families!
that live in them, and so are houses. I
Days are too short evenings seem
scarcely to exist at all, and fami
lies make greater demands than
any presents could possibly grant.
Tn the face of all these grim
facts, is it still the parents' duty to
sacrifice the family sitting room to
anything so frivolous as a young
daughter's social life?
Frankly speaking. I think It is.
For part of the time, at lest. And!
T think mothers would agree with
me, if they once carefully thought
the thing over.
J The eighteen-yer-old-wage-earner
! works longer hours than she should,
i except in a few fortunate cases. The
hour or two that she might be out
doors she lias to spend tn train or
subway. When evening comes, she
needs recreation almost more than
she needs food for sleep. All the
youth in her cries aloud for it—
that youth that all day long has to
pretend it's a grown-up machine
Her parents, even though they may!
work much harder than she. cannot
possibly need a normal social life
las much as she needs it. The needs
lof youth are imperative. Something
goes wrong if they're not granted.
This is just as true of boys, if it
weren't for two things. One is, that
It's possible for boys to get their
; social life away from home. And
the other is, that it is particularly
| a girl's business to keep herself
| strong and normal with steady
,| nerves and good vitality, because
learning that weekly pay-envelope
! doesn't comprise the meaning of life
j for her. Some day she'll be a
I mother.
And a girl can't be the right kind
of mother unless she's sound and
strong. So, looked at from this

, There are. as it happens, plenty i
jof other arguments in favor of
granting home privileges to the girl'
i who hoards at home. There's one in
particular that's rather forcible.
If a girl is spirited and resolute,
strongly conscious of her individual,
, rights, you can't really deprive her:
except temporarily, of the social life:
she needs. She's going to get it, j
i anyway.

I She feels, in fact, just as the fol-i
! lowing letter reveals. It is one of:

solitary case.
"Do you think it advisable," asks I
this wage-earner, "for a girl of!
almost nineteen to leave home when

me amusement of the most innocent

friends. If I go out with them,
which is, not often, I have to meet
them outside, or at their homes, and
I imagine they wonder why I do
not invite them to my home.
"And as for having a young man

Advice to the Lovelorn
Dear Miss Fairfax:
1 have known a young man for
quite some time. I love him and
know my love is reciprocated. He
asked rne many times to go out with
him, but 1 refused.owing to the fact
that we are of different religions.
Since my refusal our friendship
waned. Now do you think it would
be proper for me to write this man
and try to gain back our friendship,
if nothing else, as I do believe that
our religion will' keep us apart.
Since you still believe that the dif
ference in religion is an insur
mountable barrier, I should think it
much wiser not to attempt seeing
each other again. It; would not be
fair, either to yourself or to the
young man with whom you believe
yourself in love.
Dear Miss Fairgax:
I am nineteen and am considered
good looking, and also a good dancer
and I am very jolly girl.
There is a young man whom I
have gone out with quite a number
of times, but knowing that he goes
out with other girls I do not know
whether he loves me. But, while
with me. he seems to pay all at
tention to me.
Now, Miss Fairfax, I would like
to know her.to find out whether he
likes me or not. ANXIOUS.
There is no way of knowing j
whether the young man is in love i
without you until he himself fells
you so. The chances are that so far. '
he is not. Be reasonably patient i
until you know each other better. |
Dove should not be forced in this i
hasty fashion.
Life's Problems
Are Discussed
What would you do, if you were
dissatisfied with your present job, [
and wanted to secure another which j
you felt would giv e you a wider op- i
portunity ?
That is the fix of a young man who '
has written to me.
He is twenty years old. a high j
school graduate with an additional
year at college to his credit, and !
has had one year's business experi- '
ence in an office position.
He doesn't see much of a future '
in his present place, however, and ■
is consequently. seeking an opening!
more in line with his ambitions. }
He has advertised and answered i
ads, he says, lias appealed to all his i
friends and acquaintances, and has
followed up either by letter or by
a personal call every chance of which j
he could hear; but all without re
Baffled and at sea, he writes to
ask me what he shall do. He has
no doubt of his qualifications, and i
is perfectly sure that he can make '
good; but he seems unable to get j
the chance. What is the trouble? j
One does not hav e to be the seventh 1
daughter of a seventh daughter, or i
born under a veil to tell him. His i
difficulty, like most of those with j
which the rest of us are struggling', j
is entirely of his own making.
According to the record, he has I
had the good fortune to receive a j
better education than the average
young man; but with his knowledge
he has failed in one very important
respect to get understanding. He .
doesn't realize the value of words.
He squanders them like spendthrift.
He pours them out in such a flood
that he actually clutters his moan
He takes four closely written pages
to present the facts regarding himself
that I have stated above in four
short paragraphs, and before he even
approaches the subject matter of his
letter, prefaces it with this intro
duction :
"I am forwarding this communi
cation to you in the hope that you
may be able to assist me in soW
ing the problem I am confronted
"The nature of the problem itself
is a very practical one, and one which 1
no doubt has on innumerable oc- j
casions come to your notice. 1 am !
compelled, though, to resort to this !
j method in attaining my ends, having
, tried all others and found them un
.lo. useful.
"What follows may seem to you
to be no more than a voluminous and
lengthy piece of fiction, unworthy of
your serious attention. I can assure
you, however, that it has been writ
ten in all sincerity, and is lengthy
only because of my desire to tell you
everything, in order that no fact may
be wanting, should you be Interested,
and now to a specific mention, as brief
as possible, of the facta in the case."
And he says he wants to effect a
connection which will eventually lead
to a position of executive's assitant
where he can be of aid in handling
the correspondence.
Frankly, 1 wouldn't engage Charles
M. Schwab as office boy on the
strength of a letter like that. Yet

j lad was praised by his instructors
j in English when at school for his
