In either disease the condition may s.'.ari. sud denly or sloy.'ly and loss o: xhe mental faculties is present. With tlie increase in the span of human life today, larger numbers of. individuals are reaeiing tiiose age periods in which menial cisease is more common. Most institutions in this country report more first admissions for seiiile dementia and arteriosclerosis of the brain than for any other disease. Since many -of these patients require' only nursing care, special units are being developed to house them in connection wilh large hospitals.

Naturally \ve had hoped to marry, so it is 'very depressing to us to learn that wedding rings are so hard to come by, and we would like to know what our chances are of ever getting one. "Are there any statistics that show whether it is easier for men lo marry lhan women? Do widows marry oftener than Widowers? Are young girls more likely to gel hus- I bands lhan their older sisters? Do men consider divorcees a preferred nialrimonial risk? In a word, what is the matrimonial score for both men and women?" Well, girls, fortunately for you, Uncle Sam has just been collecting statistics on the marriage question and here is the official dope: He says that men find it easier to get a wife than women do tb get a husband. This is easily understood because men do the picking in marriage, whereas women have to sit on the anxious seat and wait for some man to come along and pop ERTH of a DOLL © by Hilda Lawrence; Distributed by NEA SERVICE, INC.

Only one sick tray, Minnie May, hangover, and only Iwo week-end passes and I know they're legitimate." "Then what—" "The new girl Monny. She came." Miss Brady was openly puzzled. 'Well?

She described the sudden transformation at the desk, the fear that took over eyes and hands, the averted face. "She was natural enough wlien she came in, exactly as you said on thg card. Shy, quiet ordinary in a nice, quiet way. Then all at once something happened. She changed, right before my eyes and it frightened me. Somehow I got the idea that she saw something, or heard something, but I can't imagine what." "Who 'was near the desk?" "I thought of that, too. Just the iisual crowd going to the dining room, stopping for mail, nobody that stood'out. Wait a minute. Dot came for a tray check for Minnie May." "Dotty, the girl evangelist! Who else?" "Jewel at the elevator, Kitty at the board. Kitty noticed it, too; I imagine they all did. It seems ridiculous when I tell it like this. Kitty, Jewel, all of them as drab as Ruth Miller herself....Oh!" "Got something?" "Lillian Harris was hanging around. She said something flippant I forget what it was. Then she went off to her job. The Miller girl went out, too, a few minutes later....She didn't have dinner." Miss Brady looked thoughtful. "Harris,"-she said. Miss Small sat quietly, "Lillian doesn't like me." "I don't know what you mean by that, and I don't see how it fits in here,' 'Miss Brady answered. "Lillian Harris was well recommended, but if she hurts you in any way, out she goes." Miss Small raised puzzled eyes. "What do you mean when you say she was well recommended? Sh? came here after that rule about leferences was thrown out." Miss Brady grinned when Miss .Small recalled the rule. They had drafted it themselves and fought for its adoption. They'd argued th^t a girl's past vvas her own private business and insisted on her right to live it down if she wanted to. The Board had fought back, prophesied scandal, and lost. From that time on, no one was asked for a reference. The rule was three years old and so successful that Miss' Brady sometimes forgot its origin. "I mean I knew about Harris," Miss Brady explained. "Sh'e use'd lo have.a friend here, iiscd to visit the -friend before she moved in herself." She ran a hand through' her hair. "Suddenly I am very, very sick and tired of this 'job.", she said.

Men Prefer Widows Also, it appears that men's taste n matrimony runs to widows, whe- her grass or sod, and that a worn- m of the same age and pulchri- ,ude has. This may be accounted 'or on two grounds. One is that a widow has cut her wisdom teeth on her first husband, so to speak, and she has acquired the art of juitering up her husband, instead of salting him down with her tears. Likewise, the widosv has learned how to run a house and cook at uer first husband's expense, which is money in the pocket of a second nusband and,saves him from get- .ing stomach ulcers. But perhaps Lhe main reason, why men favor widows is because every man likes to have other men's okay oh Women.. He doesn't trust his own judgment and he feels that a widow comes with a good wife certificate in her handbag. Why divorcees should have., a special lure for men Is not clear. Perhaps it is because they appeal to men's sporting spirit, or the bright face of clanger, .or the gambling instinct; but, according to the government's figures, a divorced woman of 35 has 80 chances in 100 of remarrying; while the divorced, man of the same age has, more than 95 chances .in 100 of- walking down the aisle again. Still mote curious is the fact that a splmster of 30 has only a 50-50 chance of marrying, while she has 05 chances out-, of 100 if she is a giaduale of'the divoice coiuts.
