Answer—Dancing Is a splendid ex ercise for a girl of your type. Of course, you must practice and take limbering-up exercises regularly. If possible, take a few private lessons and practice in your own room the various dance steps that you feel bother you. Play soothing music, which will help you to relax. A splendid exercise for giving poise and good carriage is to balance a book on the head. The head must be in line with the spine and the rihs lifted buoyantly above the ab domen. which is w’ell drawn in. An other exercise that will help to make the spine loose and supple Is as follows: Stand erect, with feet slightly apart, knees together, hands on hips. Kneel down and drop the chin as near to the fleer as possible. Be careful to keep the stomach well drawn in. From this position swing around and up to the right, down again to the front and up ward to the left. Repeat five to 10 times, swinging rhythmically in a half MENU EOR A DAY. BREAKFAST.

Handwriting What It May Reveal. BT MILDRED MOCKABEE. THIS appears to be the writing of a very interesting personality. This very large, heavy style is frequently used by a forceful type of person. This writer seems to be one who would attract at tention no matter where she might be. She would apparently never be a “cling ing vine." but would desire to lead others. Though she undoubtedly has a keen appreciation of what to do and when, she should not Intrude these good ideaa too atrongly on others. Too great insistence upon her own plans might antagonise those whom the waa trying to help. The tightly closed "f” suggests good management. She does not seem at all stingy, but she would surely de mand full return for her money. She would seemingly desire the best to be had and would gladly pay for it, but she would quickly detect any attempt to sell second-rate goods at first-class prices. The long lower loops and shorter upper ones emphasise this prac tical side of her nature. She probably enjoys travel. Though she would always desire an estab lished home to which she could re turn, she appears to be the roaming type. No corner of the globe would be too obscure to attract her. As her interest In human nature seems great, she possibly enjoys the different types of people encountered as much as their countries. Seemingly she would not be content to settle long In any one place away from home. While away she would probably always want to be on the move. When at home she perhaps enjoys a very pleasant social life. Probably a suburban life would suit her best. Here she could have out-of-door sports which would provide an interesting outlet for her energies. She would perhaps desire her friends to visit her frequently, wanting to have them enter into her pleasures.

The Woman Who Makes Good BY HELEN WOODWARD, ^ Whose uniquely successful career, both in business and private life, enables her to speak with authority on problems of the modern woman. How About It, Mother*? ‘‘Dear Helen Woodward: When I read your article about wives making homes and keeping their jobs, I simply had to write you. Of course, hundreds of Helen Woodward. women are doing both beautifully. But there are still many who balk at it. Some of them are just mentally lazy and some are bound down by traditions. They have forgotten or never knew that the home In the old days was a fac tory In which the wife had to be a aauiea workman and executive, iiut those times are past. "Here’s to speeding the day when women as well as men will seek the Job for which they are best fitted, and stick to it regardless of marriage and children. I have managed a home and a Job together. And for short periods I have merely kept house. I’ll take the former combination every time. A job takes the edge off the dullness of house keeping "And any woman who becomes ex hausted because of having a home and a job has perhaps chosen the wrong outside job. Or she needs a vacation. Or she foolishly tries to shoulder all the household drudgery Instead of hiring some of it done. “Does it not seem strange that we fhould still think the mere act of par entage fits a woman for what should be the highest paid job in the land— the care and training of children? To me it Is perfectly maddening to set what some well meaning but incompetent mothers do to theft children. “I live In an average middle-class neighborhood. One neighbor, a sweet woman who would be a Jewel In an eat ing house, keeping the public well fed, has made her four children a spoiled and helpless lot. Another woman, who would make an excellent gardener, tells boastfully how her son spent her money for candy when he was sent out for groceries. The best behaved child in the neighborhood is the son of a woman who has her own Job outside the house. She hasn't time to spoil him. “Child raising requires experts in nutrition, nursing, psychology and teaching. What parent can qualify in all that? Surely future generations will look back UDon us and laugh. "I wish, Helen Woodward, that you would print a questionnaire in your column to be filled out by the women who hav kept theft jobs and the wom en who have not. The results should i be Interesting. Thank you for allowing me to get this off my chest.” I can't print a questionnaire, but I’d love to hear from other women who have worked and kept house. I've done it myself for 18 years—but I’ve already said what I think. How about it? (Copyright, 1931.) A WASHINGTON DAYBOOK BT HERBERT PLUMMER, ‘‘rJ'EXAS ROW” in the House Office Building on the Hill—long a fixture in congressional circles—will be broken up within a few days if the Democrats come into control. x caoo nuw 15 that line of offices on the fifth floor where Represent atives of the Lone Star State are fond o f establishing quarters when they come to Washing ton. The fifth floor Is attic-like in ap pearance. Main elevators do not go there. It is nec essary to take side i elevators to reach ‘ it. The ceilings are low and the corridors a bit ptejl 1qua*t*ws I gloomy, mere is not the finery there which one observes on the other floors. Each Congressman occupies small rooms partitioned in half. His secre tary sits in the first half, he in the other toward the back. The entrance is through a white painted door, the upper part of it white glass. Walking down one corridor, glancing at the stenciled names on the doors, a visitor gets the impression that he is calling the roll of the Texas delega tion in Congress. In office 538 there is Daniel Garrett of Houston. In 542 Hatton Sumners of Dallas Is located. Sam Rayburn of Bonham Is in 543 Wright Patman of Texarkana Is In 545. And next door to Patman, In 54«, Is Marvin Jones of Amarillo. When the Democrats organise the House In the coming Congress, there will be some moving in this section. Bigger and better offices are in store for some of them—offices which are appro priately termed suites. Three of the group will become chair men of major committees and inherit office space and equipment the like of which only the privileged may enjoy. Sam Rayburn, for example, will move from his little cubby hole on the fifth floor down to the second in the space allowed the chairman of the Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce. His offices are perhaps the swankiest of the lot. Hatton Sumners will be Installed in the quarters on the third floor reserved for the chairman of the Judiciary Committee. The room In which his committee meets resembles a court room in appearance. Marvin Jones, who becomes chairman of the Agriculture Committee, will get the agriculture suite on the aeeond floor, occupied for so long by the ven erable Haugen of Iowa, dean of the House. Most of them admit that it will feel rather strange moving Into sueh luxury after so many years In the "attle.” But ' they're Jubilant all the same. /T,HE way youngsters devour AllWheat Crispbread is de lightful to watch.

KINO OIOROI V Distributed by Good Distributors, Inc., 1100 Maryland Ave. S.W., Washington,D.C. * '! 8 * It all dates back to a few months ago. As you know, I have my hands pretty full with three small children— and Jim really works awfully hard at the office. We were both becoming increasingly run-down, nervous and finding it hard to sleep. So we decided to give up coffee at supper, because of caffeine. ' One day I was talking to a friend of mine who teaches dietetics. She told me that we had acted very sensibly as far as we had gone. That we were wise to give up caffeine — but very unwise to give up a soothing, relax* ing, warm beverage at aupper, She advised me to begin serving Kellogg’s Kaffee Hag Coffee—because it was just as satisfying as the finest coffee, but free of caffeine. And its warmth and cheering flavor would aid digestion, help us relax and induce restful sleep. Well, I followed that advice—and Jim and I really do look like two new persons today. Kellogg’s Kaffee Hag Coffee is nothing but the purest, finest coffee—with 97% of the caffeine — and with the indigestible wax removed. Wonderfully improved in both blend and flavor — the price has also been reduced again, to where Kaffee Hag Coffee now costs practically the same as any other fine coffee. And think of the extra benefits! Try Kellogg’s Kaffee Hag Coffee for a week and see if you do not sleep better, feel better*—put more enthusiasm and *est into your work. Kellogg’s Kaffee Hag Coffee is sold by your grocer In vacuum-sealed cans. Try a pound. It is guaranteed pure coffee, free of caffeine effect. If you aren’t entirely satisfied, return the empty can to us and we will refund your money. Boasted by Kellogg in Battle Creek.
