Impromptu Weddings Staged.
It'i hard enough to tell what any
young people bent on marriage will
do, but when yonng men of the medi
cal profession take the great notion
into their heads you never can tell
what will happen. Announcement is
made today by Mrs. John F. Coad of
the marriage of her daughter, Irene,
to Dr. Thomas E. Dailey. Although
the engagement of the these two
young people was announced some
time ago, their wedding plans have
been a deep secret. Just when they
planned tne 11 1 tic coup no one knows,
but the fact remains that without any
previous announcement they hied
themselves to St Cecilia's church
Thursday at 6 o'clock and there were
united in marriage by Rev. Father
Gatelv.- lhat nisht they left for
trip in the Canadian Rockies, further
destination unknown and length of
stay indefinite, rnends say that Miss
Coad is a real girl and that Vr,
Dailey is a "regular man;" therefore,
they conclude that their private little
wedding minus fuss was just the

Basinger Back from Visit
To Riley Cantonment Camp
General Passenger Agent Basinger
of the Union Pacific is back from
Kansas and while there he spent sev
eral days at fortKiley looking after
trantportation matters in connection
with the movement of troops.
According to Mr. Basinger there
is great activity at Fort Riley. The
work of constructing the armv can
tonment camp buildings is under way
and hundreds of mechanics of all
kinds are fit-ding employment. The
fort is on the Kansas line of the
Union Pacific and is reached only by
this road. Junction Citv. six miles
away, has a north and south road.
"Hello! Hello! Oh, I'm so glad I
caught you I just must see you.
Leta have dinner together tonight,
I have some things I want to talk
over with you. You have an engage

The tone sounds desnerate bar.

really suffering, needing your advice,
your help. Your eneaffement is fnr

can manage verv wan without vnn

you cannot fail her.
At 6:30 just as you are setting off
to meet Virginia, the phone rings

,"Oh, my dear. I'm so elad I tfht
you I didn't want you to itart off
on a wna goose cnase. jack Lacey

see that clever new play which is
closing tonight and I knew you
wouldn't want me to miss it."
You gasp. Virginia is going with
Jack Lacey to the very play which
you gave up because she "needed"
Do you protest? Then Virginia
tearfully asks you how you can be
so unkind. -She is lonely and blue
and she telephoned you because she
felt you could helo over her hart
place, but seeing that clever play at
the Lyceum will be even better for
her. Of course, if you insist on hold
ing her to the engagement but she
wouldn't treat you that way.
Do VOU accent Virginia' rMtM.c
breaking of the engagement with you
in favor of one with Jack Lacey? You
encourage her in her cavalier attitude
toward her engagements with women
wnen opportunities to go out with
men come along. You let Virginia
feel that she is privileged to make
and break engagements at will to
pick and choose and please herself
rather than to abide bv anv schedule
which has been made and which in
cludes her. Your very, willingness to
break an engagement for her encour
aged Virginia in her casual attitude
toward keeping appointments.
A cavalier attitude toward engage
ments is I fear me more character
istic of women than of men. Even
rather fine women have a feeling that
they have a right to pick out the in
vitations which most appeals to them
and to cancel any other which inter
feres with it.
A group of us were discussine a
young dramatist recently and we all
agreed that one of the reasons we
liked Henrietta so much was because
she was completely denendahle. One
of the girls summed it up like this.
it sne promised to meet me at a
tea room for luifch and the duke of
Argyle came along and invited her
to a feast at his castle, she'd keep
her date with me. She's a wonder
never knew a girl so decent to
others even when there,' are men at
stake. But I don't know another air
just like Henrietta."
Ihere are not verv manvl T ran
find excuses a-plenty for this failinte
but I wish it were not there to be
excused. .
Men1 generally object to makinir
engagements far ahead. They say
very frankly, "When evening conies
along, I may not feel one bit like
going ice-skating. I may want to stay
and feed togs to the grate lire. I
hate to tie mysejj up so far ahead.
Let me call you up some evening
when I'm juM in the mood and wVU
motor out to one of those cute little
places in Westchester and have din
ner and a few dances."
And you sav to vourself: "Hnw
selfish rflen ar: Thev're terrihtv
spoiled. They always want to do what
they -enjoy 1"
Perhaps they are selfish (we won't
discuss that here and now and to
day). But much can be forgiven men
for the Sake of their honesty About
engagements men have a ttmnorr
sense of obligation than women. They
may dbject to making them, but
once they have committed them
selves to a social course nothing but
the Great God Business can interfere.
Perhaps it is because women have
generally to make the best of what
is offered them because they are not
free to choose their pleasures and en
joyments and are dependent to a cer
tain extent on others to offer them
their social opportunities, that they
do not feel bound down bv the lesser
pleasures when the greater ones are
But there 'is no worse forin of sel
fishness generally prevalent among
women than their tendency to slip
out of one engagement and into an
other, regardless of who is being
hurt and disappointed andilioroughlv
discomforted by their defection. A
sensitive girl is likely to feel real suf
fering as a result of the treatment
which another girl metes out to her
when she serenely neglects to keep
an engagement and calmly leaves her
friend high and dry.
Suppose you have planned to spend
the Fourth of July on a country hike
with another girl, and then some man
invites you to take the day trip up
the Hudson or to go to Coney Island?
Before yOU aCCCDt. Sinn tn-rnnei.l.r
