Nix on Slang
Take it from us kid, there's no
nourishment in slinging this slang
stuff. Tln.c's a cinch. Slang is all
to the bad. It don't get vou any
where. Forget that Norwegian
college professor who says that
American slang is the swell talk.
He's trying to put one over on us.
Either soniebod'y been handing
him a lemon or else he's trying to
con us. Listen! You can't make
a hit with the tony guys unless
vou get a little style into your
lingo. The trouble with slang is
that it puts your vocabulary on the
blink in a jiffy. And then, when
you want to have a touch of high
life and throw tlie lugs, you're in
bad. See? Do you get us? Have
some class about you and cut it.

A recent number of a high grade

Tobacco manners are uncommon;
ly free and bad in this generation

mine. Since cigarettes came i n
specially, youths seem to feel
licensed to smoke them in all places
and company, and th; boys are
prone to too much ease of attitude
and lounge and loll appalingly in
company, and I see them in parlors
with their legs crossed in such
fashion that their feet might al
most as well be in the ladies laps.
What made a woman know be

happen is she would have known
