The Boarding Problem [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 14 May 1921
Coe Boarding Problem In times past women who lived in boarding-houses belonged mainly to a pathetically unattached class, which has been frequently, portrayed in fiction with rather depressing ef fect upon readers of a sympathetic nature. / But nowadays women who board are as various in type and age as those who walk along the (Xty foot paths. Some prejudiced folks would sweepingly have it that, in the idle and gossipy atmosphere of a board ing-house, all women are bound to deteriorate to some extent, with the exception of those who are occupied in some special work or study which renders the absence of \ domestic la bours and responsibilities desirable [or them. Certainly, the average woman with out a home of her own is deprived to a great extent of her vocation. But the woman who is really most out of her element in a boarding house is the young matron. All young couples were toieant to establish their own nests, sacred and ^ipart, and different, in subtle and de lightfully charac...
