Will this monstrous world war bring Judy O'Grady and the Colonel's
Lady nearer together? Will it teach one half of humanity how the other
Will it create a bond of sympathy and understanding for the better
ment of the race?
For the first time in the memory of this generation the society woman
is working perhaps not utilizing her moments as she will later on when
the stress becomes greater. She is beginning to realize the importance of
blue serge and sensible heels; the necessity of early rising and good health.
On the Toboggan.
When the spirit of patriotism (or the fad, whichever it is) began to
enlist armies and armies of society women, along with the professional and
business women, the useless, silly pink teas found themselves on the
The clamor for leadership in extravagance is not so popular and we
yet may be convinced that "money is character" or that the way in which
we use it shows character.
For, perhaps, the first time the society woman knows something
about the rush and the strenuous existence of the busy woman. She learns
to shop rapidly, to decide on what she wants and to "stay decided." She
learns to conserve time and to make the best of opportunities. But, first
of all, she learns to recognize opportunity's knock.
In our forced intimacy, and work for common interest, the great and
the small, the rich and the poor, the busy and the idle meet on the same
basis. One half the world learns to know that the other half also is human;
that they enjoy and suffer; that they try and fail and try again to win.
At the Finish.
During this tremendous drive of war work social equality is known
as never before. The idle become producers and the parasites are reborn
with a new spirit a desire to give to the world instead of to take from it.
The good which comes out of this conflict makes for a better and
purer race with a spirit alive to produce eradicating the spirit of indo
lence and decay.
Judy and the Colonel's Lady shall benefit at the finish.

I am making a substantial salary and

until the war terminates.
In addition to myself there are several

aro anxiously awaiting your response
through The lice. S. M. B.
Yes, I do think that the attitude of your
family is rather a cold-blooded one. But,
on the other hand, I have heard a very
splendid man-an officer in the army ex
press the same idea. Said he: "I don't dare
marry the girl I love, because if I do, I
am putting myself in a position where, un
less I come back from the war practically
unscrntched, I won't come back. I'm not
willing lo be a drag on her later, crippled
or maimed, as I might be if I married
her." I met his suggestion with another
one wouldn't the same idea hold good even
if they were only engaged? But ho said,
"No, it would not. because then he would
not feel that the girt he loved was
shackled and bound to a. cripple."
Now I, personally, do r.ot hold these
views. First of all, tho war means sacri
fice, and sacrifice nobly made for all of us.
So fine women will not ask to be immune.
Kach will gladly take her chances of stand

that you be loyal. I don't believe in sud
den, hysterical war marriages, but with a
three years' fr: -nilslnp in the background,
it seems to me your wedding ought to take
place just as you have planned it.
