6 F THE BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE, NEW YORK, SUNDAY, MARCH 24, 1920. There Is Absolutely No Love Between Us" Laments White Wife of Oriental Husband Who Orders Her and Children Out of Home Stay Where You Are, "Discouraged," Because Mate Is of Alien Race Does Not Release Him From His Obligations to You and Your Offspring:. ADVICE BY HELEN WORTH. Dear Helen Worth Many times I have wanted to write to you after reading your replies to so many types of letters. I am married to an Oriental and have a family, whom I have educated, as I believe education Is the most priceless gift one can give. My life has been very sad owing to my husband's attitude toward life: He talks to me most shamefully. As I have no one to confide in and den't think it well to discuss my marital affairs with the children, I come to you. Now he tells me to get out and do what I can for myself and two little girls. 13 years and 7 years. The others are able to care for themselves. The thought haa often entered my mind perhaps It would be well to accept a position In a home whare I can take my own two, not having any business experience. Another thing, the people who live In my neighborhood are very Intolerant and call the little ones names; this one could stand, as married life has so many problems, even If my husband was different. Of course there is absolutely no love between us being refined and not wanting publicity, I have put up with hunjer and mental tortures. Perhaps it is not too late I am 40 to start a new life, as in the end he wou'.d return to his native land, as he of.en threatens. I r.-::i look forward to your view 01. t:, ? situation. DISCOURAGED. P. E.I Just gave you a brief out-1::; -. e? to state all the facts would u- rll the space allotted to you. :.!. dear "Discouraged" "Of ccr.rr.e there is absolutely no love between us." And yet you have borne this man's children and you continue to live under the same roof with him! A sad commentary Indeed! Your experience should serve as a warning to those ardent young women who, shouting that the world Is well lost for love, dash headlong into matrimony without one thought of the future. Your letter is one more proof of the truth that one cannot experiment with life and marriage and not pay a heavy penalty. And the sad part is that innocent little people must be involved and they are made to suffer through the selfish impetuosity of another. Your husband cannot force you Believing that many persons art confronted with personal problems, anxious for advice but unwilling to seek it from friendi or relative; The Eagle invitee ite reader to write to Helen Worth, who will give each communication close personal attention. Write under your own name or an assumed one AND O.V ONE SIDE OF THE PAPER ONLY. Direct letter, to HELEN WORTH. out; unless you choose to run, you may stay where you are and demand support for yourself and the dependent children. And that seems the better thing right now, disagreeable and difficult though it be. For there are few homes where a woman with two half-grcwn children could find employment today. My advice l.i to stay where you are and try to make the best of thnigs for your children's sake until they are older. To marry in haste and repent at leisure is probably the ljt of ninety-nine women in every hundred who disregard race distinction and unit their lives with those utterly alien save in their place of residence. HELEN WORTH. Nurse Sends Message To "Virginia L." Dear Helen Worth In response to "Virginia L." I would like to say: Have you looked into the nursing profession, talked to nurses and friends who have needed their services! do you realize the menial duties confronting you; do you wLsh to give up most of your freedom, evenings and friends to a trying degree? Such involves this noble field, and only a conscientious girl should undertake this work, which is similar to Army training. Inquire lor a well-reputed and registered hospital. Bear in mind: You are subject to dav or night duty, one-half hour allowed for mealtime, 8, 10 and 12-hour duty, serious and considerable study, three years of rigid training, with less than $10 monthly allowance; three weeks summer vacation, when hospital is able to allow you the time and you are not asked or considered. A few requisites of a nurse; She must be sincere, trustworthy, conscientious, patient, cheerful and content "Tis a hard, weary and long trail, I em a nurse and love It, but it hurts me to see so many young nurses so indifferent to their profession in the care of their patients, the heart is missing and so is the mind. Tis a paying game? Would this trail lose it's glamour and bore you, too? And do you really in your heart want to administer to the sick 12 hours a day without complaint? I challenge you." NURSE TO THE CORE. My dear "Nurse" Your letter seems, to cover the question so very thoroughly that no addition to it is necessary. "Virginia L." would do well to consider long and carefully before making such an important decision. Nursing is far too serious and un-Eclfuh a profession to be entered into by any one to whom its sole attraction is commercial or (social. HELEN WORTH. Apply (o Nearest Eastern Star Chapter. Dear Helen Worth I am wondering If you can help me out. I would like to Join the Eastern Star (I am eligible), but do not know if I have to be asked to Join or whether I should file an application and, if an application has to be made, to whom I should make such an application. I would also like to become affiliated with some political organization, but do not care to Join the one In the neighborhood. Is there a general organization which one can Join regardless of the district in which one lives. BELLA. My dear "Bella" It Is perfectly correct to request an application blank from your nearest Eastern Star chapter. An invitation to Join this organization is not necessary. In reply to your second query, I suggest that you Join the League of Woman Voters. HELEN WORTH, Drop Psychology and Try Something Practical Dear Helen Worth First, may I thank "H. J. B." for her suggestion of Mary Raymond Shlpman Andrew's "The Courage of tho Commonplace"? I found it in book form at the public library. Though it did not leave me exactly happy (for I thought it was a bit overdrawn), still it has made me feel that membership in a fraternity is not the only index to a person's character. More than that, It has given me a goal something to strive for and try to achieve. I am sure I will always remember these lines: "The courage of the commonplace is greater than the courage or the crisis. "It is the courage of the commonplace which trains for the courage of the crisis." Now, I wonder if you will express your opinion on psychology as a subject in the college curriculum? All I can say about It is that it has robbed me of youth. When I entered college In September I was young in mind and years. In January I was still young in years but oh, so old in mind! I still am that way. In six months I seem to not only have grown up but grown old. Perhaps you will say it has given me character, yet isn't there plenty of time for character to come instead of it being thrust upon you? In my case snapshots tell the tale-six months ago I looked my true ae, but now my face looks liv years older at least (my forehead is even wrinkled). But then one never gains anything without some loss. EULALIE. My dear "Eulalie" If you have been helped the least little bit throush this column to pull up from your slough of despond, I am indeed glad. Courage to meet life as it comes Is one of the createst gifts the fairies may bestow :.t the christening party. Under treat stress almost any one may reach the heights it's the ability to smi!e and plod along which counts in the long run. And now for your query, a very Important one. If memory plays no tricks, you stated In your first letter that your age is IS which Is young for college, too young, In fact. I am firmly convinced that although It may seem a hardship the person who doesn't enter college until a bit mature really gains In the end far more from the experience than the youngster. Psychology is a study which should not be offered to all comers, in my opinion. I think many a young person absorbs only a portion of that which Is expounded and, full of half-baked knowledge, ideals are shattered and moral vision Impaired. Olven a strong physique and a robust character, eventually a normal balance may be struck with life. But there are many, like you, who become lost In a maze of things only half understood. My advice would be to drop this subject and substitute something intensely practical as well as interesting. Today every college offers such a wide choice that no one Is under bond to apply himself to a distasteful subject. HELEN WORTH. LETTERS TO THE EAGLE Against Playground Site Editor Brooklyn Dally Eagle: May I ask you to voice a protest on the purposed playground at Classon ave. and Fulton st.( for which there is now a bill pending in the Assembly to Invoke a law giving permission to sell the property and not use same as a playground, inasmuch as this purposed playground would endanger the lives of children who might use :.t. due to the congested traffic in his immediate locality. I consider no poorer location for a playground could have been selected. It will also ?ause a lot of disreputable people to congregate around this playground at night. It would serve as a rendezvous for disreputable men and women. It would not be safe for women who are compelled to pass this neighborhood at night, as they would undoubtedly be subjected to insults and possibly bodily harm. I believe when the proposition was put before the Board of Estimate that a number of children were assembled that did not belong in the neighborhood, but made to appear to make a showing and to gain the sympathy of the board.

On this day, on arising I saw the snow was (our or five inches in depth, and was falling very gently. I resided at the corner of 6'-h and Flatbush aves., Brooklyn. I saw a car coming down Flatbush ave. Wanting another cup of coffee, I said I would take the next car; It did not come for three or four days. I hastened to Fulton st. and caught about the last car there. About 10 o'clock the storm set in with snow and wind In great sever-lty. People living uptown or out of town began scurrying around for hotel accommodations. We at the Western Union office accepted probably 200 or 300 messages for uptown, reading that the senders couldn't get home. I remarked to many that a messenger boy should not be expected to go where they couldn't. About 5 o'clock George Oould and Roscoe Conkllng, a prominent politician, walking up Broadway, came Into the office for a rest. After a wonderful busy day, at first I decided to remain In the office all night, but as the Ninth National Bank let the fires go down, and it was bitter cold, I started for home. The Brooklyn Bridge was closed, and it was reported the ferry, too, had closed, but I got over all right. I walked down Broadway to Fulton St., thence to the ferry, up Fulton st Brooklyn, to Flatbush ave., to Pacific st and from this street, three long blocks, there was no path, and with snow up to my waist, I came near giving out. It was bitter cold for several days, If I remember right. I reached my home after a two-hour trip. I stopped at drug stores three times for a cup of beef tea to keep up my strength. All this is still In mind after an interim of 41 years, though on March 13 In 1929 the temperature was 66. ALONZO J. BURTON. Brooklyn, March 12. until the Leonard referred to as "Pop" died there were three alive; now only one remains. In my great-grandfather's hou?e in Adelphl st. live a brother and a niece. The name has always been spelled "Dunkly," by the family. Leonard Dunkly not only did much for the many pupils who studied under him, but was constantly working to better the condition of teachers. E. D. C. P. Brooklyn, March 15. More About "Pop" Dunkly Editor Brooklyn Dally Eagle: In reference to the poem on "Pop Donkeley," the letter of Joseph A. Banks and of "J. A.," let me say the original Leonard Dunkly was my great-grandfather, and he died about 1884. There has been a Leonard In every generation, and THIRST MEDICINE Editor Brooklyn Dally Eagle. The Jones amendment gives us pause to consider that the followers of Prohibition whose objective was the abolition of the saloon never dreamt that the direct results of their efforts would be that Instead of the thousands of saloons there would develop tens of thousands of speakeasies; that people would learn the trade of the distiller, the brewer and the wlnemaker and that the alcohol trade would be taken Into the bosom of the family where booze would be made with the aid of and sold before the eyes of the children. I mention the Jones amendment because it runs to enforcement. Is not our problem different from that which confronted the prohibitionist? What we have to do is to eradicate speakeasies, home distilleries and kitchen barrooms and bad booze. It will be a different job with opposition from the Drys and the distillers. The simplest way without bringing back bars and public drinking would be to liberalize the provisions of the law relative to liquor for medicinal purposes and make it so that anyone could go Into a drug store and buy a bottle of whisky, brandy, gin or wine without a doctor's prescription by simply saying that It was for medicinal purposes. Good bonded products could be had at the right prices, with heavy penalties on the violation of regulations by the druggist. Who would make stuff at home then or buy at the speakeasy bad liquor? The freedom of the thing would do away with the many evils of the present. Of course there would be some violators but not the open contempt of the Constitution and laws there Is today. CHARLES J. DOHERTY. New York, March 13. Education to Blame for Our Present Lawlessness Editor Brooklyn Daily Eagle: Anent your symposium on Law In today's paper, it is my opinion that there are three fundamental troubles with our law all resting more upon the shoulders of laymen than upon the Bar. 1. Citizens do not take Jury duty seriously. What the word "duty" means Is a lost value to our people. Jurors do not try to understand their duties nor properly to perform them, and every citizen seeks to avoid aiding the law, whether as a Juror or witness. 2. On Election Day citizens elect men to the Bench concerning whose fitness they have been at no pains to inquire. 3. Citizens fall to hold legislators responsible for making laws and shirking the responsibility of enforcing them. The remedy? yes It is simple but radical. A return to the old order in education, less emphasis on fads and more emphasis on the Constitution and the history of the men and times who made It, so that citizens will understand their Government and its operations. Study of government does not mean the Insufferable nonsense handed out as 'civics" What the Is mid what it says not what some textbook writer says about it is important. The ideas and sacrifices of the men who made our Government should be studied. To know what it cost others to give It to us will make us appreciate It. Citizens, newspapers and populof writers blame the courts, the Bench and the Bar lor foolish laws and procedures. In most cases the responsibility rests upon the Legislatures. Courts cannot make laws. Whatever folly the legislators place upon the statute books the courts are helpless to evade and are bound by oath to enforce. The writer Is a member of the I Bar. FRANCIS M. FIELD-MCNALLiI. Brooklyn, March 17. BETTER MAKE IT $100,0001, Editor Brooklyn Dally Eagle: As this Is an age when people are searching for knowledge, why would It not be well for some one to offer a prize of $50,000 for the best thesis on the creation of our universe?
