friend or acquaintance presented her
maid to us at an afternoon- tea we
probably would be polite enough to "ac
cept the situation graciously. But pri
vately we would consider it extraor
dinary. And if our brother or son
wants to marry the cook or maid In
our home !! Words fail us!
No woman is going to put herself in
a position where she will be thus os
tracised. And that Is the chief reason, I think,
why women will do most any sort of
work that gives them a recognized so
cial position rather than work that
gives them none, in fact casts a sort
of stigma upon them.
I know a charming young girl who
went out in the family of a friend in
a farming community as a helper be
cause she wanted to earn money to aid
her father and mother during a period
of financial stress. Her friends un
derstood the situation and her action
made no difference in their attitude
toward her. In fact they admired her
and liked her all the more. But at a
social gathering in the neighborhood
a woman who recognized her merely
as the helper in this family said, with
scornful amazement. "Why, she works
out. v hat is she doing here?"
And there you have the general at
titude in a nutshell.
F"or some reason we gather our so
cial skirts about us when we come in
contact with a "hired girl."
I know of another case where a girl,
because of ill health and the necessity
to spend a year or so In a certain place,
took a position in a home to earn her
living while away from an opportuniU
to follow her usual occupation. Later
she married a successful business man.
removed to a Southern town, became
quite a favorite socially and an active
worker in the club of her town. A
member of the club discovered that she
had at one time been a maid. Disrup

the members declaring they could not
be expected to associate with a servant
Snobbery, you will say.
But calliivg things hard names does
not remedy them.
This condition is all wrong, most of
us will admit. But isn't It up to the
women of the land to remedy it if we
want to improve the domestic service

with the problem honestly and earnest
