Front Our Own Correspondent NEW YORK.
A disturbing situation has arisen in Milwaukee (Wisconsin) where it seems the young ladies of the archdiocese are more interested in acquiring charm (if such is possible) than in learning about Christian Marriage.
At least, that is the complaint of the Milwaukee Herald-Citizen, diocesan organ.
The perturbed editor writes:
" Young ladies of the Archdiocese have been turning out in good numbers these past weeks to attend: (1) a clinic on Christian Marriage; and (2) a charm school. Both are sponsored by the CYO (Catholic Youth Organisation).
" It's a sad commentary that more are Interested in charm than marriage. One would expect that the young ladies' secondary (if not primary) interest in developing charm is the hope of attracting a fine Catholic young man. That should lead to marriage.
" Strange, isn't it?—the most difficult of institutions, marriage, is entered into with so little thought and preparation. The young girl who wishes to give her life to the service of God as a Sister, is expected to undergo a certain amount of training. Now, when some training and instruction on marriage is given, why don't the young ladies mob the place? Most of them are going to be married, aren't they? Why a seeming lack of interest?"
