"Girls with no aim in life hut
to walk up and down the streets,
satisfied if they can get enough
money to take them to picture
palaces and keep them supplied
with hiRh-heeled shoes." Thii
was the indictment delivered hy
Miss N. do Silva against the'
modern girl of the middle class.
Miss de Silva is the wife of
Martin Harvey, English actor,
and she herself is high in the
play world. She was speaking
on the subject of Women's Work
at a meeting of the People's
league and Iliusewivcs' union
when she so strongly arraigned
the modern young girl. Other
points she made were: "Now as
women are taking a larger share
in puhlic life they must take care
that they do not lose, in their
emancipation and the knowledge
that they could organize, the
very thing which in the past had
been the backbone of England
their love of home. "These little
girls, the typo of womanhood
known an the "flapper," half
children and half women, have
become almost a typo of this
generation alone, it is one of
the saddest types this country
has ever known. They do noth
ing and are of no use; on the
contrary, they do incalculable
harm. Thoy do not qualify for
mothers or for wives and thero
is nothing before them but dis
aster. "Iho streets of our
towns arc crowded with these
little girls, 15 and 1G years of
age, with no aim at all. For
the most part they do typing or
serve in shops and they just on
duro thopo few hours of work in
order to bo able to dress up and
walk about in the evenings. In
the wealthy classes wo have
found exactly the samo thing-
thore is no love for home and
very little respect for tho parents.
Their idea of life is leas and
lunches in hotels and smoking
cigarette. What does it end in?
Misery and nothing olsc. Smok
ing ilHclf is not a harmful thing,
out unon acmilrcri as n remit o
habit it is a sign of general loose
ness, why aiioum a girl smoker
I have never been ablo to find
out. 1 have had a pretty long
experience and I can count on
my fingers tho women who
smoke because thoy really likoit.
"1 recognize that youth must
Have enough recreation and
pleasure," said Miss do Silva,
in conclusion, but it is tho deeper
things that matter Mothers,
fathers, home lifo and work."
