You may remember that oft-quoted line from a famous poem, “The child is father to the man.” It is a para dox worth reflection. Without shifting responsibility too much, it reminds us that folks who grow up ignorant of how to handle money either had no money to handle in youth or were not trained to handle it properly. Your child’s allowance is not only a fund for buying candy or going on picnics or buying trinkets. It is part of your investment in his education as well. We sometimes hear of little boys bring given allowances to the exclusion of their sisters. This we believe to be wrong. There are one-third more widows than wodowers in this country, and none more than a widow n<eds to know how to handle money. Many a parent who would not dare place his or her child at the wheel of a car to drive be fore giving lessons, will die and leave money to his or her children when they attain the age of 21. Yet those chil dren are no more qualified to adminis ter their money than, untrained, would they qualify to drive the car. Many children marry when they are still young. Girls may marry men of which comes from a new, pateotecl niEINZ I I FLAKES| WOMAN'S PAGE Winter will supply a welcome variety to menus and make the slacking up on meat not adversely noticeable. A Pleasant Feature. The homemaker can add rest to a menu by making each now vegetable or variety of fruit served an especial fea ture of the meal. This may be, either in the nature of a surprise for which the minds of the family have been pre pared or it may be mentioned that such and such a dish of vegetable or fruit is planned for the meal, thereby making a bit of pleasant suspense or anticipation precede the meal. Fresh rhubarb sauce with a roast of veal or fresh rhubarb pie with a lattice crust through which the succulent veg etable is glimpsed has a tempting sound. Strawberries, red and tasty, served with whipped cream and home made sponge cake, supplies a dessert or supper dish to appeal to the epicure. Fresh asparagus on toast with butter or with a cream sauce made with rich milk is hearty enough for the main dish for a light luncheon or supper dish. A slice of cold meat on the side gives a heartier menu. From the time when new potatoes begin to appear as a native vegetable to the time when the last of the Fall fruits and vegetables appear there can be a succession of table delicacies, fresh and delicious, to give menus an appe tizing appeal. While these foods are in season is the time when they suit con stitutions best, for nature suggests that they be served then, and she is the wisest guide. Moreover, foods are their very best, most luscious and full flavored when they are in season. So, both for health .and for the advantage of get ting foods at their best let them have places on menus while native ones are available with all the delicacy or zest of freshness. (Copyright. 1929.)

They might as well be expected to pilot an airplane. Ex perience Is an enoromus factor in sending money, and children should be given a chance to acquire It. How can spending pennies and nickels qualify a child to spend sizable amounts? Because In spending those pennies and nickels, later quarters and dollars, a child Is taught the principles of spending, thrift and saving. Once learned, these principles may be ap plied to sums of any amount. Our problem with regard to the child and his allowance would seem clearer if we would remember we are training the man as well as the boy, the wom an as well as the girl. At what age should an allowance begin is another question? Usually when a child begins to attend school, he is old enough to learn the rudiments of money, too. However, mothers can best decide when. We frequently remember, when our children are grown, traits that were first manifsted in their childhood. Spending Is not unlike these personal traits. As a child spends, and saves, so will the man or woman spend or save. Skill acquired, judgment de veloped, thrift inspired are well worth the pennies of childhood. THE EVENING STAR, WASHINGTON, D, C„ THURSDAY, APRIL 25, 1925. DOROTHY DIX’S LETTER BOX rtEAR MISS DIX: I left my husband five months ago. It was the fourth time I had done so, and for no other reason except just a foolish argument. Each time I just put on my hat and walked out and went to some of my relatives. My husband is a good man who gives me all of his salary. He loves me and is willing to take me back, but I am ashamed to return to that neighborhood and ashamed to let my people know I want to go back to him, because in order to justify myself I have lied about the way my husband treated me. Now I am with a brother, but he-will not be willing to support me and my 8-year-old son much longer, and I am untrained and have no way to make a living for us. Just what would you do? J. MAC Q. Answer; Well, Mrs. Mac Q., my earnest advice to you is to go back to your husband and eat humble pie while there is still a chance to do it and hence forward to try to conduct yourself like an intelligent, grown-up woman, instead 1 of a petulant, spoiled baby. Doubtless you think you make a fine gesture of Independence when you slam the door behind you and walk out on your husband whenever you have a 1 disagreement with him, but in reality you only proclaim yourself a quitter and show how little appreciation you have of the binding nature of a contract and the seriousness of the obligations of a wife and mother. ~~ According to your own showing you have not really tried to make a go of your marriage. You not only have not attempted to keep your home together, you have done your best to wreck it. You have exercised no self-restraint. You have never controlled your temper. On the contrary, as soon as you encountered the slightest difficulty and you couldn’t have your own way in everything, even ‘ to the last say in an argument, you scrapped all the vows you took at the altar and ran away from such a minor unpleasantness as a family spat. A pretty poor sport you are. Doesn’t it make you feel ashamed of yourself when you look about you and see the women who have had the courage and 1 the steadfastness to endure marriages that were earthly purgatories for the sake of their children and because their own self-respect would not permit them to force other people to pay for the mistake they made in marriage? I often wonder that the ladies who rush so gayly and with so little provoca tion to the divorce courts never stop to consider how unfair they are to their 1 unfortunate families. For when Mary decides that she has lost her taste for her husband or becomes green-eyed over her husband’s having a pretty stenographer ; and picks up her children and goes back home, it is her relatives who have to | pay the bill for her matrimonial grievances. She and her children have to be supported, and it comes pretty hard on those who have about all they can do to take care of themselves in these times [ of the high cost of living. All of us know fathers and mothers whose old age is ; deprived of every comfort and made hard and poverty-stricken because their : pittance of an income has to be divided with a divorced daughter and her ' youngsters. All of us know brothers and sisters whose own families have been almost wrecked by having a divorced sister and her brood foisted upon them. So it seems only fair, before a woman leaves her husband, for her to consider whether she is able to support herself and her children or not, and if she is not whether she had not better put up with a good deal of unpleasantness from friend husband rather than hang herself like a millstone around the neck of her afflicted family. For, after all, it isn’t their fault that she doesn’t get along with her husband. Think this over, Mrs. Mac Q. Realize how unwelcome you are at your brother’s and in your other relatives’ houses and perhaps it will make you decide that it is better to be mistress in your own house than a forced guest in some body else’s house. ' DOROTHY DIX. • • • • r\EAR MISS DIX; Can you tell me what to do about my inability to make friends with girls? lam a law student, in fair financial circumstances, like a good time, am good enough looking, yet since all the maidens seem to avoid me it must be my fault. My loneliness has almost driven me to desperation. BYDNEY. Answer: Girls often suffer from datelessness because they have to wait to be asked, but I can imagine no reason for a man not having a girl to step out with unless he is too lazy to hunt one up or too bashful to give one the high sign. For the world is full of girls of every variety and description—tall ones and short ones, demure ones and bold ones, plump ones and slim ones, morons and highbrows, chatterboxes and Dumb Doras, brunettes and blondes, and they all have the come-hiiher-look in the eyes for any personable man, and they don’t have to be shanghaied in order to get them to a dance or into a restaurant or to take a joyride. A girl to be popular with boys has to be good-looking and well dressed and peppy and carry a winning line of jolly and know how to dance, but girls aren't so particular about boys, and almost any youth can be a riot with them if he is fairly pleasing in personal appearance and neat and if he doesn’t step on their feet when he dances and if he is willing to spend a little money on them. Usually when a boy isn’t popular with girls it is for one of three reasons. It may be because he is so conceited that he bores them to death talking about himself. Girls are pretty patient about that and will stand a lot of hearing about how great and wonderful a fellow thinks he is and what a marvelous car he has and how people tell him he looks just like Valentino and so on and on. But after a while this monologuing about himself gets on a girl’s nerves and she , decides that having to listen to it for a couple of hours on a stretch is too high , a price to pay for being taken to the movies. The second thing that queers a boy with a girl is for him to patronise her I act as if he thought she should be down on her knees in gratitude to him for noticing her and condescending to take her out. Girls loathe this grand sheik l pose and a little of it goes a long way with them. Also, it makes a girl mad through and through for a man always to be gibing at her sex and making her feel that he considers every woman a fool. The third thing that makes a boy persona non grata with girls is for him to be a tightwad. This is the case with girls who are not gold-diggers either. It is just that all girls feel that a man should be willing to pay something for the pleasure of their company, and they just naturally despise the chap who shows up regularly around mealtime and eats mother’s good cooking and then l thinks it is so much pleasanter to sit in the parlor and listen to the radio than 1 it is to go out and burn up a few gallons of gasoline or to go to the theater. So, Sydney, if you are not conceited or insolent or stingy, there is no reason for you to lack a sweetie. DOROTHY DIX. • • • • ■ r\EAR MISS DIX; In a case where a man and woman are both well educated, i in comfortable circumstances, and of the same class socially, would you be i inclined to encourage or discourage marriage if the woman was from five to eight years older than the man? Would the difference in the ages be a serious ( handicap to happiness in such a case? , . . A. R. Answer: I think it a great mistake for a man to marry a woman who is ’ as much as 12 or 15 years older than he is. but under that age it does not matter, ! particularly in these days when women make a cult of youth and often look, and . are in reality, 10 years younger than their age. I I see no reason why the couple in the case you cite should not be most , happy if they marry. DOROTHY DIX.

This chat is to be lor all those girls or women who sus pect taht they have a drab or uninter esting personality, and how to overcome it by completely false effects. For instance, the drab little woman usually wears dull and uninteresting clothes. Perhaps she hasn’t the imag ination to wear better ones, perhaps she hasn’t the courage to wear color. It is not a question of money, for cheap clothes are amusing and colorful these days. The dull woman must wear bright colors. If she is dark, the new soft, dark, geranium red, all shades of yellow, the new, very vivid blue, never beige nor pastel tints. If she is blond ish, yellows and greens and blues, never, gray and pastel colors, only when they can be combined in some interesting or unusual fashion. When practical dark colors must be worn, a scarf and a hat of matching brilliant shades must be used. With a blue serge, for in stance, a hat of geranium red felt and a scarf of the same red with huge polka dots of pale yellow. Who could look drab with that color combination? There are other things the drab wom an can do. Shoulder flowers are still worn and are invaluable for giving an animated touch. She must cheer up herself personally too. A henna sham poo never hurts any head, for Instance, but will brighten the color of uninter estingly dull hair. Highly polished, slightly pink nails, while unbecoming to most people, are not bad on this type. A touch of rouge will not hurt the skin, and if its tint is chosen care fully it will give life and animation to the expression. The hair should be cut to make it look soft, fluffy and frivo lous: if a very good hairdresser does it once, a cheaper hairdresser can copy the method afterward. A Reader—You would be compelled to continue indefinitely, If you took a professional facial massage every day. There should be no need for such ex acting methods, and you would soon tire of it. Send a self-addressed stamp ed envelope and I shall mail you a formula for a good cream that will keep your skin supple so it will not form into these tiny lines. If you apply such a cream with finger tips, massaging gently while the blood is brought to the surface, you w'ill have done as much for your skin as you should for a regu -1 lar daily treatment. Wipe off the sur FEATURES/ plus cream, and take the Ice rub as you have been doing. Harry S.—Try witch hazel, or • few drops of benzoin in half a pint of water, to help contract the open pores left distended from squeezing out black heads. Jt will take a long time for such pores to recover, but anything that tones the skin, like cold showers or exercise, helps a great deal, because they keep the skin active over the whole body. Creamed Lobster. Remove the meat from one medium sized lobster. Pound it in a mortar with one tablespoonful of butter and pass it through a sieve. Pound the coral and rub it separately through a sieve. Keep the coral at one side to use for garnishing. Whip half a pint of cream, adding to it little by little one teaspoonful of lemon juice. Add slowly to keep from curdling, then add the lobster and half the coral, season rather highly with cayenne pepper, put in souffle cases and sprinkle the re mainder of the coral over the top. If ; you have no souffle cases, nor the skill to make them from paper, the creamed lobster may be served in any kind of dainty dishes.
