IN THE LIMELIGHT
Here's a leap-year hint girls
aim high while you're a"bout it.
For instance, Col.
'Eddie" Green, only
son of Mrs. Hetty
richest woman, is
42, and a bachelor.
Up to date he has
received only 6,242
missives from Wom
en, young and
otherwise, who are
willing to trot in
double harness with him. If he
ca,n do that well in "off" years
how heavy will be the loads the
mail carrier will tote to the col
onel's office in this gladsome leap
year? The colonel isn't hard to
please. He says so himself. "I'll
marry," he intimates, "any girl as
long as she is the most beautiful
in the world and suits me exact
ly on the matter of disposition."
"Eddie" is a jolly cuss, all right,
Santa Claus To do my Christ
mas shopping early.
If you'll just say "God helping
me, I will be kind," you needn't
make any other resolutions.
