Men’s clubs a re doing a rem ark
able work fo r boys. W om en’s clubs
are not doing as much for girls.
Boy Scout troops in m any places
have been helped by m en’s clubs, but
few wom en’s clubs have realized
their op p o rtunity to help the girls.
Boy Scout troops are alw ays organ
ized in a com m unity many years
ahead of Girl Scouts or Camp Fire
Girls. W hat is the reason? Do the
women not love th e girls as much as
the men care fo r the bays; or do we
not realize the need?
A little girl, in h er teens, came
into a w elfare
head q u arters the
other day, and said, p u ttin g her hand
to her b reast, “ I wish I had some
thing fa r w h a t’s ea tin g me in here.”
That was h er crude way of telling
that she craved friendship and so
cial life and fun.
H er fam ily was
very poor; h er tastes w ere above her
environm ent; her home was too
shabby and b arren to bring there
those who com pany she longed for
—and she was consum ed by a long
ing for m ore of the am enities of life.
Many a frail little girl, a fu tu re citi
zen and potential m other, is stru g
gling ag ain st such handicaps, try
ing to preserve her ideals against
heavy and lonesom e odds. Is this
not a m a tte r of concern to fo r
tunate wom en?
Girls’ W eek, in m any places is be
ing sponsored by wom en’s clubs. In
some of these “ W eeks” there will be
Mothers’ and D aughters’ banquets;
an “ A t H om e” fo r daughters, to
which they m ay bring th e ir friends;
a church service which m others and
daughters a tte n d to g eth er; a high
class movie dedicated to the girls; a
program p u t on by the girls, for
m others; and o th er such celebrations
in which the girls bear the honors.
If we would make the next genera

to help th e girls of today. To spon

Dresses of tow tones o f one color
