Requirements on Shipboard
BY LYDIA LE BARON WALKER. QUERIES come in about what is needed in the way of a steamer wardrobe. Without the proper clothing one is handicapped. Many people overburden themselves, while others take Inappropriate things. It is well to re member that most persons like to bring some frocks or wearing apparel home with them, so it is wise to "travel light.” Certain countries are famous for specific things, and it increases per gonal pleasure to be able to get these things "on the spot,” even though they A HEAVY TOP COAT AND A SNUG HAT ARE INDISPENSABLE. Inay be no better than what can be bought at scarcely greater cost, at home. With this hint on "traveling light" Ft us consider essentials for the steamer ardrobe. First of all. be sure to take good warm coat. The enjoyment of the ship's deck will be lost without it. To be sure, when you cross the gulf stream you are likely to be as hot as if on land, but the coat then can be left In the stateroom. A snugly fitting hat is also essential. Today such hats are not hard to get. A silk handkerchief or triangular scarf is so often worn tied around the head that this is recommended for comfort Then, too, they can be extremely be coming if well arranged. A sport suit, preferably in some one I of the many knit ar Jersey weaves, is needed. Most of these weaves do not wrinkle and can be packed easily. Avoid the bulky type of dress. Space is de sirable, and as abroad extra charge is made for overweight, cumbersome lug gage is also expensive. A change of sport wear is advised, something rather dressy for afternoons. A sflk frock packs in small compass. Don't forget a sweater, or “woolly,” as it is termed in England. It is wise to take two changes of underwear. A nice evening wrap will be much used on shipboard by the woman who wishes to be well dressed. Do not omit one evening frock. There are continual functions on shipboard, for which you will wish to be correctly gowned. Choo6? one that will not muss easily. Shoes are a difficult proposition. They are bulky and heavy, yet nowhere can such good shoes be bought as in America. On shipboard good walking shoes will be needed and one pair of shoes which can be worn appropriately with evening dress. As dancing is pop ular on ships, be prepared to enjoy it in nice shoes. Steamer rugs are rented, as well as steamer chairs. Neither should be takpn unless a long sojourn makes one or both of these articles add distinctly to comfort. Sometimes a steamer rug is taken just for this reason. But the rug is more often taken for Winter than Summer trips. If one does noi care to be burdened with heavy garments during travels, it is possible to store them with a steam ship company on which a return voy age is to be taken. Only a modest sum is asked for such storage. (Copyright, 1932. > MENU FOR A DAY. BREAKFAST. Sliced Bananas Wheat Cereal with Cream Ham Omelet Toast Orange Marmalade Coffee LUNCHEON.

NANCY PAGE Susan Is Cool, Comfortable and Covered. BT FLORENCE LA GANKE. The early Summer days were keeping Nancy busy. She had Joan pretty well outfitted and her young son Peter was supplied with sun suits, overalls and afternoon suits of brief trousers of plain color attached to blouses of sheer dimi ties. lawns and linens. Baby Susan was another problem. She would not need many dresses, for Nancy planned a sensible, cool Summer for her 6-month-old daughter. She would be able to kick and stretch and paw the air with chubby, active legs unhampered by dresses and warm petti 1 coats. Much of her sleeping time would be spent in her large pram or carriage. Her crib was out on the sleeping porch, too. Nancy's problem was the kind of coverings to provide for the Summer days and nights. She bought some finely striped pale blue and white seersucker. She made a crib cover of this, turning the hem back on the right side and using rick rack for triirming. She caught the points of pale pink and white rick lallw uiaiu nun jcuuw uu viuiutt; wv ton. In the comers she put three small flowers made of rick rack braid. The points of the petals and the center French knots were made of the same yellow embroidery thread. The hem was blindstitched before the bra\l was put on A transparent cover which allowed the sun and air to come through but kept out flies, dirt, mosquitoes and other Summer pests was made of dotted net or point d'esprit. It had a hem on all four sides. In this was run a dur able round elastic. The cover was slip ped over pram and the elastic kept the cover in place. Nothing could creep in and Susan's kicking could not dis lodge it. Railway Offered as Gift. A railway, complete with stations and rolling stock, is offered free of charge by the Bavarian government. Furthermore. Bavaria will give $2,500 a year to the person who will run it. The government cannot make the road pay and it does not wish to shut it down because it brings many money spending tourists and holiday makers to tile country. S. IDoro^yDi^l 3j: IF a good fairy should suddenly appear before her and oiler any woman her heart's desire, she would cry out, "Give me beauty,” without ever even pausing to consider the subject. For, If she told the truth, there Isn’t a single female of any age, station or achievements who wouldn’t rather be pulchritudinous than to be intelligent or talented or amiable or who doesn't get more of a kick out of being praised for her looks than she does for her accomplishments, no matter how great these may be. Also, the woman would shrewdly argue that if she possessed beauty she could get for herself all of the balance of the things she craved. If she wants money, she can marry It. If she desires good times, there are relays of men anxious to step out with a good-looker. If she yearns lor position and place, she has only to roll her glorious eyes to be Invited into the reserved seats of the mighty. pURTHERMORE, the woman would reflect, there Is no other such alibi as beauty. A peaches-and-cream complexion and wavy hair are a substitute for brains, and as long as a woman’s head is sufficiently deco rated on the outside no one cares how scantily furnished It is on the Inside. Noboby expects a living picture to be a kitchen utensil, or a lily-white hand to cook or scrub or have a tight hold on the market money. But, after all, is beauty so all-powerful as women think It Is? Does beauty insure a woman’s happiness and success In life as women so devoutly believe it does? Is It really God’s best gift to a woman? ACCORDING to the recently expressed opinion of a “Pollies” beauty, '*'*• than whom none Is more pulchritudinous, the answer Is emphatically “no.” She says that beauty Is Indeed a fatal gift and that hers has brought her nothing but trouble and worry and disastrous marriages and blighted ambitions and hopes and plans that failed, and that the woman who has to depend on her brains instead of her looks has a better chance of happiness and success than has the beauty. One is inclined to agree with her and to surmise that beauty has probably always been a much overadvertised attraction, for which its owner had to pay far more than It was worth. Possibly It has never got her what she thought It would, and Indeed in msmy cases It has cost a woman her life, for in ancient times it was always the most beautiful maiden who was selected for sacrifice, while the lucky owners of snub noses and carroty hair went safe and free. TV^OR Is beauty really as potent In modern life as we think it Is. No man, 1 ^ or at least no man's wife, wants a raving, tearing beauty In his office, and so it is a real handicap to a girl in getting a Job if she belongs in the bathing beauty class. Nor is beauty the sure-fire conjure in getting a girl a husband that it Is believed to be. The general assumption is that if a girl has a classical profile and golden hair and violet eyes, she casts a spell over men that they are powerless to resist, and she can marry whom she pleases. This, however, is far from being the case. Theoretically men are worshipers of beauty, and they like to take a girl out who is so good-looking that she makes other men stare enviously after her. but when it comes to marriage, 9 times out of 10 a man chooses a plain little wren for a wife instead of a gorgeous bird of paradise.

'r mt ”TnTp™rWff§ EVERYDAY PSYCHOLOGY Prophetic Dream*. From Bible times on down to the present, different persons have claimed Ahat dreams arc prophecies. I have just finished reading one of these treatises. I am still unconvinced that dreams foretell the future. And I sup pose that thousands are still uncon vinced dreams are not prophetic. How can this problem be answered? For one thing, the proponents of the theory of prophetic dreams merely sav that they know of certain dreams that did foretell the future. They argue on the basis of what some one told them Of course, that means nothing by way of explanation. Take this point of view: A lot of persons, especially children, mistake their dreams for realities. Also a lot of adults go through the better part of a day displaying moods that correspond with their dreams of the preceding night. So much for facts. For a state of mind is a fact. Why, then, is it not possible for some to reason backward and mistake reali ties for dreams? It is quite possible Just as some relate their day-dreams so often that they come to believe they represent facts. This backward swash of fancies e\ plalns why some imagine that they have dreamed things before those things happened. They are mistaken. They misinterpret a reality mood for a dream mood.
