Gifts ‘For The House’ Are Not Gifts For Mama, Says Millett By RUTH MILLETT When the Christmas presents are opened and all the “Just what I wanted’s’’ are said, it stacks up this way: r Papa gets presents that only Papa can use (even if they are neckties that nobody but a Papa WOULD use). Daughter gets presents that are hers exclusively. Son gets what he has been talk ing about for months. And Mama—well, she gets pres ents “for the house.” Now it is only right that the house should get some presents each Christmas. A new lamp, or a beautiful table cloth, or an ice box, or washing machine. Heaven knows, the house needs presents from the family. But why should presents for the house have Mama’s name on them? The reason women haven't re belled before is that they have been afraid if they didn't take the electric ice box as a Christmas gift they wouldn’t get it at all. But if the family can afford an ice box, they can certainly call it a family present and find some thing, no matter how inexpensive —just so it is a bit foolish—for Mama. Also, women are a bit hesitant <£ni&us&thSni&niiSni&niaHi&ntiSiniainiatii about confessing that they would rather have personal luxuries than equipment for the house. They think it might look as though they weren’t as interested in their homes as other women. Well, it’s about time they quit pretending and came right out and | said they would like to have some thing for themselves. [ If they don’t—this will be an | other year when they’ll get gyp ped on Christmas. * * * Birthday Party 1 Mrs. J. L.

The spirit of Christmas inspires many parties, some informal, oth ers more elaborate. Edith Barber, leading American home econo mist, has just written a useful book for women who entertain and employ others to help them serve and keep house. Its’ called "Speak ing of Servants.” For the hostess who has some one to help her, or for the woman who must do her own serving, the following section from Miss Bar ber’s “Speaking of Servants” will be a practical guide during this season of many parties: THE PASSING AND REMOVAL OF FOOD If you are training a waitress, you will find it simpler to make it a rule that all food should be passed, placed, and removed from the left. All beverages are natur ally placed, poured, and removed at the right. "The waitress should be shown rather than told how to pass dishes containing food, which should be held low enough to make it easy for the person to whom it is being passed to help himself. The serv ing fork and spoon should have their handles toward the guest, with the fork to the left of the spoon. "The method of removing the dinner plate with the right hand and the bread-and-butter plate or salad plate with the left hand should also be shown. The way to fill water glasses without remov ing them from the table and by holding a napkin in th left hand slightly under the mouth of the pitcher should also be demon strated. The general rules for serv ing may be summed up as follows: 1. Serve hostess or guest of honor first. Continue around the table from the right of the person served first. 2. Place, pass, *ind remove all dishes from the left. 3. Place, pour, and remove bev erages from the right. 4. Use left hand in serving from the left, and right hand in serving from the right. 5. Pass dishes in following or der: Main dish, vegetables, sauces, bread, relishes, and salad if part of main course. 6. Remove dishes from main course in following order: Roasts and accompanying dishes, dinner and bread-and-butter plates or salad plates together, relishes, and salts and peppers. A small tray or a folded napkin may be used in removing the latter. 7. A napkin, folder in a square, should be used in placing and re moving all dishes. 8. The table may be crumbed with the use of a folded napkin and plate, if necessary, after the main or salad course.” * * * BRIDGE TEA WILL BE GIVEN FRIDAY AT COUNTRY CLUB Friday afternoon the Cape Fear Country club will entertain at an in formal bridge tea.

She stated that little did people think that toys have been in existence quite as long as they have, but Egyptian children played with toys thousands of years ago.

That repellant under arm odor signals decay! That perspir ation which damages gowns is de composed ! Because the dark arcs are closed to purifying air and light, perspiration decays before it evaporates. Perspiration, carrying cast off body wastes, pours out on the skin, ming ling with dead skin scales, and micro organisms. Decay begins. Acids form. Fungus may grow and bacteria mul tiply. Rancid odors appear. "It’s shocking,” say lovely women of today! They prevent it, by using Acrid to safely check perspiration. Arrid keeps underarms dry, odorless, 1 to 3 days.
