Tip For Women: Little Johnny
Has More Pride Than Susie
BY RUTH MILLETT
Little boys worry more than
little girls about their clothes,
manners, and whether or not they
have “pretty homes.”
That information came out in a
test given to fifth and sixth grad
ers in New York City to deter
mine what children worry about.
Boy Is Father
To The Man
It is not only a fact that mothers
should keep in mind — but one
for all women to remember. For
the little boy whose personal pride
is so strong that he worries about
his clothes, manners, and the way
his house looks, grows up into the
man who is still sensitive to all
those things.
Because men like to pretend
that such superficial things dont
matter to them, women are often
fooled into beliving that they
don’t.
But a little thought and atten
tion will convince any woman
that a man is more a slave to
public opinion than she is.
Men’s eyes follow the girl
whose taste in clothes and whose
“entrances” turn all eyes. But
they don’t marry the type. They
marry girls they feel they can
count on never to embarrass
them.
Men grumble about their wives’
extravagance, all the while letting
it be known that their wives de
mand and get all the luxuries. If
they honestly didn’t like their
wives making a showing of expen
sive clothes and possessions, they
wouldn’t foot the bills.
Men Are Conscious
Of Their Looks
Men are slaves to etiquette—
and worry much longer and
apologize much more for a social
blunder than do women.
Men are so conscious of their
looks that there is the dickens to
pay if their clothes aren’t kept in
perfect condition. And they are
jealous of a handsome man as
women are of a beautiful woman.
Perhaps more. There are women
who like Dorothy Lamour. But
try to find a man who has a good
word for the glamor boys of the
screen.
For all those reasons it is a big
mistake for a woman not to exert
nerseu to De quietly charming, to
make her house a little more at
tractive than the Joneses, and to
see that her husband thinks he is
a pretty good-looking guy. 3

MAKE FULL USE OF
VARIETY OF JUICES
IN SUMMER MENUS
BY MRS. GAYNOR MADDOX
NEA Service Staff Writer
Only a few years ago many of
our popular fruit and vegetable
juices were practically unknown
on our menus. Now we consume
a staggering amount every year.
The American housewife need
not limit her meals to a few “tried
and true’’ juices when there are
such flavors as apricot, cranberry,
grapefruit, grape, cherry, pine -
apple, prune, raspberry, tomato,
lemon, and orange. This variety
should suggest interesting com
binations achieved by experir • nt
ing a little.
For a summer variation try to
mato juice with a bit of cucum
ber or some crunchy, crisp celrry
to point up the flavor. Orange
juice is no longer the sad step
child, thanks to improved canning
methods. Grapefruit Is preferred
unsweetened. Apple is a recent
addition to the canned fruit juice
list. A No. 2 can fills three 6-ounce
glasses. Put the following tested
recipes to good use in tall, frosty
glasses.
MINTED APPLE JUICE
One No. 2 can apple juice (2 1-2
cups), 2-3 cup unsweetened pine
apple juice, 2-3 cup orange juice
fresh mint, strawberries for gar
nish.
Mix together the apple, pine
apple, and orange juices. Strain.
Chill until very cold.
PINEAPPLE LEMONADE
Two lemons, or 1-2 cup canned
lemon juice, 3-4 cup sugar, 2 cups
water 1 No. 2 can pineapple juice.
Cut lemons in thin slices. Boil
emons, sugar, and water for 10
minutes. Cool. Add pineapple juice
and chill. Serve in tall glasses
filled 1-3 full of crushed ice or ice
cubes. Garnish with lemon slices
and fresh mint. If canned lemon
juice is used, add with pineapple
juice to cooled syrup.
FRUIT FLIP
One cup orange juice, 1 orange
rind, 3-4 cup sugar, 1 1-2 cups
strong cold tea, 1 No. 2 can pine
apple juice.
Cut orange rind in thin strips
Boil orange juice, orange rind,
and sugar for five minutes. Cool.
Add tea and pineapple juice. Serve
over cubes of frozen ginger ale
or ice.
For breakfast, try half tomato
and half unsweetened grapefruit
juice; half pineapple and half
grapefruit juice with juice of one
fresh lime; half grapefruit juice
and half grape juice; half carrot
and half grapefruit juice.
TOMORROW’S MENU
BREAKFAST: Tomato and
and grapefruit juice, French
toast, crisp bacon, jam, cof
fee, milk.
LUNCHEON: Scalloped to
matoes, cheese sandwiches,
blackberry tarts, tea, milk.

Movie Revues
“EAST SIDE KIDS” IS
FEATURED AT THE BIJOU
Perhaps the hardest job in the
movies is the actual casting of a
picture. And Director Robert Hill
claims to have had one of the
most difficult casting jobs in re
cent months.
It was Hill’s job to assemble
the youngsters for the cast o f
“East Side Kids” which comes to
day to the Bijou theatre.
Due to the many groups of
screen toughies, Director Hill’s as
signment was extra-difficult inas
much as he had to form a band
of kid-gangsters far rougher than
any-'other on the screen. Hundreds
of unknown toughies were inter
viewed for the parts and rejected
as unfit. Finally, after about two
weeks of searching, Director Hill
hit upon the right formula.
The current chapter of “Drums
of Fu Manchu”, and a cartoon
“Dangerous Dan McFoo” are also
on the program. 3
“IRENE” IS FEATURED
ON CAROLINA’S BILL
All the charm and tuneful
sparkle of the original hit musical
comedy has been retained in
screen version of “Irene,” now
current at the Carolina Theatre
to prove itslef one of the season’s
most enjoyable offerings.
Anna Neagle, completely sur
prises with a scintillating and de
lightful portrayal of the happy-go
lucky Irish heroine. A former mus
ical comedy star before she came
to the screen, Miss Neagle is per
fectly at home in the role and her
transition to such a carefree char
acterization is a proof of her un
usual versatility.
Ray Milland also is brilliantly
effective as the wealthy young
man who gets Miss Neagle into
her various troubles as she soari
from her salesgirl job to become
the toast of the city. He also j
the one who marries her at the
end, after her disillusionment and
her engagement to his rival, Alan
Marshal, who likewise does an ex.
cellent job in his part.
March of Time’s "The U. $
Navy-1940” should not be missed!
It is one of the finest shorts 0j
this nature ever brought to the
screen. The show is closing t0.
