This is story number 4,693 on
the subject of woman drivers vs.
American civilization.
Don't go overboard on the
subject Women drivers deserve
comment but the wholesale sup
ply of copy on the touchy topic
has produced undesirable effects.
Women are now using their
husbands as chauffeurs with the
excuse that they are unable to
control the 120 horsepower en
gines of today. They are, after
all, mere women. But a popular
magazine has a comment on
women which is a wise one.
Never under estimate the power
of a woman.
Career Women
There is a peculiar brand of
women now known as the career
woman. This kind of woman is
out to destroy the popular myth
of the women driver situation
but they usually wind up de
stroying the new 1950 "Faithful
Forever" car that was built to
last for years.
The average woman is nervous
behind the wheel of a automobile.
She fully realizes that thousands
of men who suffer their wives'
and girl friends' nagging are
given a sense of guiding their
own destiny when directing op
erations on the mechanical mon
ster of the road. The power of
the engine, the strong grip of the
wheel and the vivid daydreams
of the hen-pecked man transform
Joe Jones into the conqueror of
the earth. Beware, little people,
he says.
Male Conceit
The overbearing conceit of
man enveloped in the low regard
of the woman driver destroys his
own peace of mind. The man
teaching the woman to drive acts
as if the lady were in the baboon
family. The woman in a hysteria
at all the mechanical gadgets
finally gives up learning to drive.
She is then content to vent her
frustrations from the back seat
where she is most effective.
Many brave women, however,
do drive today. The same women
have friends who have friends
who are trying to change the
accident statistics records so that
men are now smirched as the
main offenders of "awful" driv
ing. Judging Teams
