WORSE THAN PARIS, .100 SWANSEA GIRLS' LAXITY. MORE "WHITE BLA V E RUMOURS. I Are there White Slave agents in Swan sea? The question is prompted by the dis- closure of a certain young lady in South Wales being saved just in time from accepting an alluring situation abroad, and which she had been persuaded not to do by Scotland Yard. The Swansea police, who, perhaps, are w h <), perhaps, are better judges than anyone, state that they know of no such agents being about. Captain Alf Thomas, the courteour, Chief Constable, told a "Post" reporter ow Friday that he had received no informa- tion on the subject nor any complaints. and it could be taken for granted there was no need whatever for alarm. Care, ht, &aid. should always be exercised in these kinds of advertisements, and if only paTenta or girls would I CONSULT THE POLICE CONFI- DENTIALLY enquiries would be made which would be o I considerable benefit to the girls themselves. HWMDONKTN SHELTER SISTER. I Sister uilkinson. in charge of the Cwm- donkin Night Shelter, says no such cases -I)a-e been brought under her knowledge, but as her residence in Swansea has been brief she cannot speak altogether definitely. "There's one thing," she to:d a "Post" reporter on Friday, the morals of Swan- .sea as she sees them are very poor-wors than London, where she comes from. Cases oome under her notice of girls having been I LED ASTRAY AT FIFTEEN, and she cites aad instances of the downfall of girls, diie in the majority of caies to the girls themselves. "We put any stranded girl up for the night." she stated, "and we get the sad cases into homes and from thence into ser vice. Our work is h.,peful--tnd not hope- lesf, as so many imagine. Often on the Strand we hear the plaintive cry, "I wish, sister, I could GET OUT OF THIS." As confirming Sister Wilkinson s impres- sions-whiell, after all, are confined to the lowest piano of Swaneea life-Ir. Ranger, of the SaJvation Army. in charge of the Lan- dore district, offers singular confirmation. "I think Swansea's m.orals," he said, "are very low, and many of the girls would be ready victims tn the wiles of the white slave agent. As to the latter, he is not amongst us. to my knowledge, and I am in touch with agencies which would soon hear of him." For years Mr. Ranger was in Paris, and he told our representative that agents thrived there, broadcast. "London and Paris," he said, "are receiv- ing depots for this traffic. The girls are brought in. and then opportunity is waited to get them abroad. Often they go direct from their homes." SWANSEA GIRLS LAX. "Swmisea girls, I fear, are lax. I am sorry t<T see it, and in this laxity they are worse than Paris or ilondon. In plaoea where the agents thrive girls are 'up to them' here I Mn afraid they would not be. The surroundings of the homes contribute to this moral laxity; in many cases the girl is left to look after herself as and how sh. can—and drift."
