mental attitude has upon your'
friends, your health and business?
Stop your scowling a minute and
listen to this. The Day Book believes
that right now, when half the world
is at war, humanity has learned more
than ever to appreciate the simple
comfort of a smile. For that reason
we are going to give our readers a
series of four stones on "The Psy
chology of a Smile."
Miss Lillian Benfeldt Thompson, a
San Francisco girl, whose smile and
beauty have made her famous, is the
author of the series.
She is fully qualified to write on
smiling. After a three months' con
test in which thousands of girls were
entered, Miss Thompson was chosen
by a committee of artists and beau
ty judges as the "Typical California
Girl," and as such she reigned as
. queen of the Prosperity ball last win
ter during the celebration of Prosper
At the exposition last year she was
' picked out of a group of San Fran
cisco's prettiest girls as the most
beautiful in the crowd by no one less
than Francis X. Bushman, famous
beauty expert of the movies. Harri
son Fisher, noted artist, wanted her
to pose for his works, but her parents
would not permit her to grace the
pages of the magazines.
And with all this and much more
to her credit, she is not spoiled. That
means, of course, that she has brains
as well as beauty.
Read her stories on why she" be
lieves in the smile as a panacea for
human ills and we believe your day
and the days to come will be a bit
"brighter for the reading.
The smile stories begin Monday.

JUST COAT FOR "TRIPPING"
By Betty Brown.
If ypuare tripping it this summer
you will need a good coat pretty
enough to wear of an evening over a
shimmery, sheer summer dress and
heavy enough to keep you cozy on
That is the sort of coat I had in
mind when I made this sketch of a
coat a famous modiste designed. It's
of blue suede cloth, an admirable ma
terial for a coat that will see wear,
and lined with pussy willow taffeta
dotted and blocked in pink and green
and other gay colors.
The loose pleat at either side is a
brand new "wrinkle," and just as
new are the patch pockets that are
unstitched at the edges. The cape
and the high collar are pretty. The
sports hat of silk is saucy enough to
match the saucy coat
