Not for ourselves, but for our daugh- ter, who is now 21. Ten years ago Louise had everything, she attended a smart private school, went about with a very nice crowd of girls, and nat— urally supposed that her life was to fall into pleasant lines. “Then came the crash, which affected my husband seriously. We were buying our home; that had to be sac- rificed. We moved to a small but nice hotel apartment, promising Louise that it was but temporary, but we have found it a great struggle to maintain even this much of an appearance. Much serv- ice is included in the rent, but tips to elevator boys, porters, chambermaids,windowwash- ers, waiters, amount to more than the price of one good servant in a private home. Janitors and delivery boys must be remembered regularly, and as no laundry work is permitted in the house that is an additional expense. Indeed, everything we do costs mon- ey and with a $55 rent taken from a salary of about $225 a month even my most careful management leaves little for pleasures for Lou- ise. She cannot entertain very much; we no longer have a car, and of course her clothes are simple and few. My husband was quite ill last March, and although he is now well again, he dreads another breakdown and has taken out more insurance than it is comfortable for our fami- ly to properly handle under the cir- cumstances in which we now find ourselves. Daughter Depressed. “The unfortunate result of our change in position has slowly afo fected Louise. At first she attempt- ed to keep up with her old friends. and as most of their families had suffered too, this was not hard. But now many have drifted away, or have regained their old prosperity, ‘and she feels keenly that she mnnot keep pace with them. She cannot drive about, buy cloth‘es, join coun- try clubs, and although she did take a position for a short while in a fashionable frock shop, she was uno able to stand the physical strain and had to give it up. Many of the nicest girls, and indeed, some of the wealthiest in town. have done this, so that she felt no embarrass- ment in trying it. but it was too hard. “She is extremely pretty and un» usually bright and attractive, or was so. For she has grown silent and depressed now, and I have consulted a doctor and a psychopath about her. There is nothing organically wrong, but she does not sleep, takes small interest in anything, and has long fits of the blues. If I could I would send her on a long trip about the world, hoping the change of scene and contact with new friends would shake her out of her depres- sion, but that is impossible now for many reasons.

One hard- ly knows which to pity most; the father, gallantly struggling not only to support them now, but trying also to lay aside enough insurance to cure for them should he drop in his tracks; or the pretentious, super- ficial mother who never has learned anything of the true values of living; or Louise. spoiled and idle and dis- contented, destroying by her own young ignorance and selfishness the years that might be the happiest of her life. 'An Unhappy Household. What a wretched failure that boxed-up little apartment in the ho- tel must be! Dad tired and discour- aged: one of the million men who were deceived by false prosperity before the crash, who never really deserved the high positions and high salaries to which national prosperity swept them, and who will never get back again. Mother straining every nerve, physical, mental, social, to keep up appearances: to maintain her diminished household upon the scale that luckier women can at- tain with no worry at all: to secure for Louise friends, amusements, clothes all just a little too expensive. And Louise, hating the small rooms. hating the small salary, hating her clothes and her parents and above all herself. There the three are, tied together, failing each other on every count, destroying each other and themselves like three unhappy animals in a cage. Here is a family where a definite readjustment is ab- solutely necessary. Louise’s mother ought to lift that load from the man of the house by moving immediately to smaller, DON'T you think it's one of the prettiest ideas for cotton prints that ever bloomed in the spring—all set for a summer of great popularity?

His wife ought to convince this worried. struggling man “that two healthy women can get along in this world without draining the life-blood from a follow-creature to do it. and the daughter ought to begin to bring into the group not only financial as- sistance, but cheerful daily reports, healthy contributions to the conver~ r sation at the dinner table, bracing reactions to her first contact with realities. Change in Living, Thinking Needed. Louise’s mother probably doesn’t know it, but once she wus‘removed from the misery and humiliation of constant contrast with women luckier than herself, she would find i life extremely pleasant. Among humbler neighbors she might find herself considered the fortunate one, the women to copy and admire. So- cial standards are poor things. if they inspire us to extravagance and idleness and envy. For better to get into the open air of honest work after so many years shut into the unhealthy hothouse of having to do what the Jonescs do.
