Advertising Section 105 A Flapper Who Watches Her Step Continued from page 86 Constance talks easily, interestingly. She does not call you "dear" nor does she refer to her escort as '"my friend." Her ideas on marriage, birth control, and careers are uncommonly sound for one so young. Eventually, of course, we got onto the subject of moving pictures and I was surprised to find that she had not admired ]\Iady Christians in "The AYaltz Dream." She had, however, been fascinated by Willy Fritsch. '"He stands a good chance of becoming a great idol if he can survive the enthusiasm of our man-eating flappers," I observed. Constance raised her head and gave me a long, level look. *'I like flappers," said she. Here was an idea. Possibly Constance, with her quick mind and varied contacts, could offer a bit of flapper philosophy. "What do you think of modern youth?" I inquired. "Don't answer if it will incriminate yourself I" ''Why. I think young people, most of them, anyway, are splendid." Turning to the waitress she inquired. "How did that ice get in my water ?" Then: "Take my little sister, for an example. She is only a thirteenyear-old flapper, yet I feel confident that, if necessary, she could go out and earn her own living and take care of herself. She knows the value of money — she earned eighty-five dollars' on the Richard Dix set last summer. "A few years ago a girl of that age could not even begin to care for herself. Of course, a young girl out alone has to use discrimination in choosing her friends. The business of living, either in the movies or out, is no job for a weakling. Most of the men I have met have been gentlemen, and I don't understand all this talk about girls walking home from auto rides. I believe that if a girl respects herself she will be respected." I like Constance. Her clean, intelligent outlook on life is admirable. She had with her a little package of stockings with "runners" in them. ''I am taking them to be mended." said she. "It seems wicked to throw away stockings because of a small defect. I was taught economy." W hen the waitress came with the bill Constance asked gayly. "How many million dollars do I owe vou?" The last I saw of her she was swinging briskly up the street, a graceful and dignified little figure, breasting life with a shield of discrimination. A flapper, yes, but a flapper of the finest type.
