The "thousands of families in the
United States are below the poverty
line because its breadwinners hap
pen to be women" is an interesting
statement made by Mrs. Mary Van
Kleeck, director of the Women in
Industry, United States Department
of Labor, at a conference on reconJ
construction recently held in Wash

manent women's bureau in the
department, to be charged with the
duty of making continuous and
careful investigation' of women's
industrial problems, the speaker
pointed out that the millons of
women in this country now "receive
less than a living wage, millons are

and efficiency and many are work

The hunting season has opened. Hunting? ' Certainly for those
recalcitrant balls of yarn which roll from the knitter's lap under the
darkest sofa, just when things are going smoothest.- But Marguerite
Clark of film fame has solved the problem with her hunting dog "Thim
ble," shown in the above picture. He is trained to retrieve those self
starting balls at top, speed. "Thimble" has proved a wonderful aid to
the motion picture star's knitting for American armies of occupation,
which she has undertaken in spare moments at the studio.

Mail Orders Receive Our Most Cafreful Attention
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee:
We are two cousins, 15 and" 17, and
we chum together very much, and
we are writing to you for some ad
vice, and we would like to see it In
the "Advice to the Lovelorn" col
umn. 1. Do you think it is proper for a
boy when he brings you home to
kiss the girl before leaving her? -2.
When a girl is trying to keen
steady company with a young man.
and then if you go some place and
tne young man you re keeping com
pany with isn't there that night, do
Vrtll ,Vlinl 4, 1a .io, 1 l.i.
3. If you go to a program or a
show, or some entertainment at .
night, do ydu think it is proper to
go out walking after that?
4. How long should a girl wear
her dresses at the "age of 15 or 17?
Hoping to see this in print and In
the future, we thank you very
much. -AIICKY AND BILLIE.
1. Good standards are essential, if
one expects to amount to anything,
and good standards lived up. to will
exclude promiscuous kissing from a
young girl's life. A kiss is valued
only for what It signifies and how
can it signify anything more than a
cheap hand-out when given to every
one? The rose loses Its freshness,
Its f color and its fragrance when
handled by all the passing crowd; a
girl's modesty suffers even more se
verely when she defiles that delicate
her person to ll who call. If you
expect other people to respect you,
you must first respect yourself. It
may be added that granting a young
man a kiss in a careless way Invites
further liberties more difficult to
check because of a gathering bold
ness and confidence.
2. If you are going with a boy who
cares for you he will ask for a
"rund-trlp" and not merely t'. 3
"p:;j;ure of taking you " home."
This would save you from chagrin
and disappointment of not finding
him when you expect to.
