BILLIE BURKE UNFOLDS THE NEWEST STYLES
FOR THOSE WISHING "GOOD MANNERS"
By Billie Burke.
A very clever young woman said
to me the other day when I asked her
why she was not gbing to marry a
man who not only seemed able to
give her everything she wanted, but
eligible in every other way:
"Well, he simply harps on the
words lady and gentleman. I am
sure he speaks of me as his lady
friend and talks of the gentleman
barber in the same breath."
This young man's morals were
above repreach, but his manners of
action and speech "grated" on this
girl, whose taste had been educated
to the best. She had learned that
there was a fashion in manner, and
today we like the splendid Saxon
word woman and speak it where our
grandfathers said lady.
A few years ago a man invariably
offered his arm to a "lady" whom he
accompanied on the street after dark,
and many young men and women
proclaimed their engagements by
walking arm in arm in the daytime.
Nowadays a woman seldom takes
a man's arm unless there is special
reason that she ohnuld rely on him
for protection, v
Even when going out to dinner, un
less it is a very formal party, the
guests do not walk arm in arm.
In a ballroom it is also bad form
to hold to a man's arm after you have'
finished dancing, and usually on en
tering a room the girl precedes her
escort by a step or two to be greeted
by her hostess.
A young woman must never make
a movement toward taking a man's
arm until it is offered, and she must
remember that, unless it is absolute
ly necessary, "arming," as it is called
in England, has gone out of fashion.
A gentleman raises his hat when
meeting or taking leave of a woman;
when he passes her on a public stair
case; when he shows her any triflng
courtesy, and he- should always raise
his hat when acknowledging her
A man also always raises his hat
upon bowing to an acquaintance who
has a lady with him, and he should
raise his hat if the lady with, him rec
ognizes a friend.
A bow should always be returned.
To give the cut direct is" a discourtesy
of which no person of breeding may
be guilty. This salutation need not
