We the Women The city registrar of Boston, Mass.. recently had to say a regretful "NO" to a woman who wanted her birih date advanced from 1009 to 1913. A lot, of women who read Hint news item probably stopped to wonder just why that woman needed so 'desperately to be four years younger than her actual age. Had she fallen in love with a man four years younger than herself and feared to marry him if he knew her age? Or had she started already 13 worry about that dreaded 40'.;i birthday and decided that she must .somehow push it further into tho future Or was she ready lo venture in- between 30 and 40 were the best years and resolved to try to stretch them out? Just what was behind that visit to the city registrar's office? Big Question: Why? A woman who tries to deny her age is always interesting to other women. "She says she is only such-and- such an age," they tell each other over a bridge table, "but"—and then come.s the speculating. So why do you suppose she did it? For the sake of a man or lor a Job,,from fear of facing the forties, or Just to help fool herself? She certainly couldn't have hoped to fool other women.
