With the Coming of Lent Many of Us Must Change Some Food Hahits —-A r ■ i , , a-a _^ cnnaren, ana proviae ior inem. mere Is one set of apartments in Chicago that does consider children, but they are almost unique. There ought to be a garden, play space, nursery school In every block of apartment houses so that the children, already handi capped by city life, can have some little chance for activity and social growth. New houses certainly ought to pro vide for the coming of children. In the old days the scheme was t® start with the first essentials—kitchen, bed room, maybe a sitting room, and add to these as the children came. That Is not such a poor scheme, provided the original plan has the additions in mind. The new house must have a child's bedroom, a handy bath room, and a place for play protected from traffic dangers. Young people build- ! ing their first, and perhaps only home, must consider the care of their com ing children. The country is the best place for rearing children—not the back coun try where there are no roads, no schools, no modern helps to pleasant living, but the country closer to big centers. Here the children live in an airy, well-lighted, warm house with gardens, playmates and pets. The schools are good, and the rich cultural Institutions of the big cities within reach. Good children can be brought up In the city. Many have been. But It is harder for them to be healthy, harder for them to be good, harder for them to concentrate on their school lessons because of the general noise and bustle about them. There is no rcocnn fnr molrinir Vta than it must be. Life supplies diffi culties in plenty, and any we can eliminate helps just that much toward mental and physical health. A child brought up in a suburban community has the best chance for a strong body and a healthy nervous system. We have not given the children’s place as much thought as we should when establishing real estate develop ments. In a few rare places like Radbume and the Chicago apart ment I mentioned, the children have been provided for and the owners lost nothing by their foresight. Some day, maybe sooner than we think, the family will live in the clean sweet country place and use the city for trade purposes. Industry may have to be carried on in the cities, but family life will carry on in the garden towns. Then children will truly come intp their own. But until that time comes let’s keep the chil dren in mind and build for them first instead of last. • (Copyright. 1036.) A Little Attention Helps Knitted Suits When a knitted suit jacket or blouse loses its shape at the shoulders, it Is ft good idea to run a ribbon from neck to armhole. This will keep it in Shape. When putting away such suits, fold them ana store carefully in a chest or good-sized box. When washing them, be sure to let them dry on hangers. Let the skirts hang as a man’s trousers and watch the drying process, pulling a little, crunching up a bit there. Keeping Flowers Fresh. Change the water in flower vases daily. Don’t have too much sub merged foliage drinking up the water. Remove the leaves that would clutter the vase’s base as the stems need room and this also makes the flowers last longer. Sticky Sirup. If you are serving sirup for break fast and the pitcher has a lid, dip in very hot water before putting in the sirup. Also rub a little butter on the top and bottom of the pitcher. It will not stick to the saucer and the lid will lift easily. rr— Shopping in Washington Concealing Marred Skin Often Gives New Outlook on Life. A special pore cleanser will tone and revitalize the skin, while the new liquid that entirely covers blem ishes and birthmarks will prove of inestimable value to the girl who has heretofore suffered from either Cause• Sketched In a Washinaton Shop. BY MARGARET WARNER. IP YOU have a naturally clear, love ly skin of fine texture that only requires careful cleansing to keep it at its best, this story will not 1 interest you in the least. But if you ; have happened to look carefully at the faces of an average crowd of people as they walk along the streets, you will find that the vast majority do not have i the best of complexions, and there is j always a large percentage that have | definitely bad skins. Some of these are very young, and the condition may be a temporary one; others are no longer young and have allowed lack of time | or carelessness to develop a muddy ; skin condition, where blackheads and i enlarged pores produce a most un I sightly appearance. v I During cold weather these conditions are apt to be much exaggerated, due ; to insufficient elimination of impuri j ties through the skin, and another con ! tributing factor may be a chilly bath room, which cuts down the amount of time you might otherwise spend on a thorough facial cleansing each night. But it is always refreshing to know that nothing is impossible, and that if you attack the problem from the proper angle you will probably begin to get results in a short time. * * * * j ENLARGEMENT of pores, as you undoubtedly know, is caused by : nvprart.ivp planris Thp G'rpat.pr t.hp flow of oil, the wider the pore base. The enlarged pore is receptive to dirt collection, which, in time, solidifies and forms blackheads, which, if not prop erly cleansed from the skin, often cause infection, sometimes developing into blemishes which may result in an acne condition. Large pores cannot be contracted from the surface alone; in stead they must first be cleansed and then shrunk at the base. We have found an "open pore and blackhead” wash that will start you on the road out of your difficulties. It is a heavy, slightly gritty paste, that may either be used as a supplement to or a substitute for soap and water. It is diluted with warm water and worked into the affected areas with the finger tips in a rotary motion and then rinsed off. It should be followed by applica tions of cold water to contract the pores, or still better, a pore reducer with more astringent qualities that will shrink the pores from the base. This pore reducer is applied with a feit of absorbent cotton and pressed very gently Into enlarged pores at night. Such a treatment should also In clude the drinking of plenty of water during the day and getting as much fresh air and exercise as can be squeezed in between the busy hours. * ■* * * 'J'HE rest of this story concerns a visit with a very attractive young woman who asked me to come to see her at the toiletry counter of one of our local shops, and the amazing thing that happened while I was there. This girl was demonstrating a prod uct that I had known about before and I was all set to hear some new details about it. She said she wanted me to actually see how it worked and began moistening a cloth in a bowl of water and removing the make-up from her face. Imagine my astonish ment when a large, dark birthmark covering half of one side of her face began to appear! Also imagine what that girl’s life would be without the covering mask of protective make-up! This young lady is almost a counter part of the woman whose disfigure ment aided by a clever brain and a knowledge of chemistry developed the formula for a heavy liquid that com pletely conceals birthmarks, burns from injury and other skin discolora tions. It is one of the most thrilling bits of news in the cosmetic field, for all those handicapped with facial blemishes, and the fact that it has been tested and approved by the American Medical Association lends further assurance of its purity and worth. It comes in a large range of colors and when blended into the skin and covered with the usual make-up, com pletely masks the disfigured area.

ALTHOUGH we gave you the story about the Shrove Tues day pancakes in Saturday’s column, there was not space enough to include a good recipe for them. And as day after tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, and the first few Lenten recipes are in order, we thought we might combine the two items for you in the column today. Of course, the pancakes may be made from any batter that you particularly like, but, while digging around in the books about Shrove Tuesday, we found what purports to be the recipe for the „ , „ "real" Shrove Tuesday pancake. Thinking that you would perhaps be interested in having the mixture exactly like the traditiona. one, we are passing the recipe on to you just as we found it. SHROVETIDE PANCAKES. Stir two cups milk into two well beaten eggs; add enough flour to make a thin batter. Add one-half teaspoon salt and one heaping teaspoon of bak ing powder. Sour milk can be used. In which case omit the baking powder and add one-half teaspoon soda. The Dak- j ing powder or the soda should not be but in until lust before the cakes are I j ready to bake. The cakes w ill be \ lighter If the eggs are beaten separate- I ly, and the stiffly whipped whites folded j in just before baking. The griddle should be piping hot. Serve the pan cakes with honey, sirup or jam. Creamed chicken may be poured over them instead of the sweet, if desired. * * * * pROM the famous Creole cooks come some of the best recipes for Lenten or “fast day" soups. These are, of course, made without mest, and to produce a full-bodied, tasty liquid without a meat stock base requires all the skill of which a cook is capable, j The Creoles have found the best so j lution of the problem, so that it is ! from their culinary lore that today's ' recipes have been culled. PAST DAY BOUILLON. 4 carrots. 4 onions. 4 turnips. 4 tomatoes. >/2 pound dried green split peas. 1 small head of cabbage. 2 stalks endive. 1 stalk celery. Small bunch parsley. 3 quarts water. 1 tablespoon lard or butter. Salt, pepper and celery salt to taste. Peel all vegetables that need to be small pieces. Place all In a saucepan ana add one extra glass of water and the butter or lard. Then add the parsley, chopped very fine. Let all boil until the Water has evaporated, then add the split peas which have been soaked overnight. Last add the three quarts of water and the season ing. Let ail simmer slowly for three hours, then drain and press through colander; return to the fire, let boil up once more ana serve very hot. Another good, nourishing and very delicious Lenten soup is OKRA AND TOMATO SOUP. 1 cup cooked okra. 1 can tomatoes or 1 cup cooked tomatoes. 2 finely chopped onions. 2 dozen large oysters. 2 tablespoons butter. 4 tablespoons uncooked rice. Salt and pepper to taste. Saute the onions in butter. Wash the rice and cook it with the onions, the tomatoes and seasonings in 3 quarts water, to which 1 pint oyster liquor has been added. Simmer for 3 hours, stirring frequently. Ten min utes before soup is to be served, add the okra and let all boil up once. Drojl in the oysters, boil up once again, and serve. * * * * A GOOD main dish for fast days j may be concocted almost en tirely of vegetables, to vary the more usual eggs, fish, cheese and cereal dishes. Here is a tasty one: VEGETABLE NEWBURG. 1 cup tomatoes, peeled and cut into smau pieces. 2 small onions, diced. 1 green and one red pepper, diced, cup cooked peas. 1 can cream of mushroom soup. ’s cup cooked beets, cut small. *2 t'up cooked celery, cut small. Salt and pepper to taste. Heat the vegetables in a little butter in the top of a double boiler. Turn in the mushroom soup, and cook all \ together until mixture thickens. Sea- 1 son well, and serve on large slices of dry toast. And for a novel fillip to the fish course, try this: BARBECUED FISH. Marinate 1 pound of any cold boiled white fish in one tablespoon oil, 1 I tablespoon vinegar, 1 slice of onion, pepper and salt. Leave the fish in as large pieces as possible. Put into a saucepan three tablespoons chili sauce, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, and j 3 tablespoons butter. Put the butter j in first, when it is melted add the J sauce, lemon juice, and the fish. Baste ' the fish with the liquor until it is thoroughly heated, and then serve | very hot, garnished with lemon slices } and parsley. This is a good way to use up left-over fish if the pieces are fairly large. Dorothy Dix Says Husbands Are Apt to Stray When Wives Become Too Bound Up in Children. i 4 ft 'll MY DEAR, said a mother to \/\ her daughter on her wed I V I ding eve. “I know you are ’ * going into marriage just j sloshing over with intentions ol being a good wife to Jim. That’s fine and ! noble, but it won’t get you anywhere : if you are irritable and fretful and suspicious and nagging and gloomy. “The woods are full of divorced women who were model wives and did their full duty by their husbands, ! but who are so disagreeable their hus- i bands couldn’t stand them. What a man wants is a pleasant wife, a wife ■ who is easy to look at and good- | natured and amiable and who has a laugh hung on a hair trigger. And if you are easy to live with, you needn’t bother about the major and minor domestic virtues. Your husband won't know whether you’ve got ’em or not. “Bear in mind, my child, that what a man really marries for is to get a claque. The reason he assumes some girl’s food and lodging and shopping ticket for life is because she has made him believe that she, alone in'all the world, looks upon him as an oracle and a spellbinder, and sees how won derful and handsome he is. And all goes well as long as she gives him the glad hand. * * * * “1VEVER have I seen a wife for ^ saken by her husband who was an adept salve spreader.

The best way to treat this hallucination is to humor it. Make the gesture of obeisance that will keep the poor creature content, and do you no harm. Listen with bated breath to his views on politics. Request his advice on whether the library shall be papered in red or brown. Ask his permission to go down town shopping or to the movies. Hus bands don’t really care what their wives do in reason. They only wish to have their authority recognized, and if you do this publicly you can pri vately do as you please without fever having to fight for your rights. “Don’t forget that men like to be babied and chucked under the chin and told they are the ‘boofiilest fing’ on earth. It is only after women transfer their cooing and gurgling and silly talk to their children that their husbands start out to hunt for other ladies to hold their hands and make a fuss over them. * * * * “OEMEMBER that men like their wives to press-agent their good qualities and turn the spotlight on them and show them off before com pany, so if your husband thinks he can sing, or fancies himself as a raconteur, or does tricks with cards, call upon him to perform at parties. It may bore ^ers, but it is a knock out for you. And always lead the laughs when your husband tells a funny story, no matter how many times you may have heard it. There is nothing that makes a husband sourer than for his wife to listen to his pet jokes with the expression of an early Christian martyr. “Don’t be a wet-blanket wife. Don’t be one of those wives who can’t step out of an evening when husband feels like going places and doing things be cause she is afraid to leave the baby with a nurse, or because she has put the bread to rise, or because she isn't dressed. Get a frock you can drop into and jam on your hat whenever he says ‘go’ and make just as much an effort to be gay and entertaining as if you were a date instead of a wife. Don’t spoil the fun of every party by counting up the cost and wondering if you can afford it. Save up the price on the butcher’s bill and say nothing about it. If you want your husband to take you out, you have got to add to the hilarity of the occasion, not spoil it. • * * * * ’•D°N ’T expect too much of your husband. He is human and has his faults for which you must 1 make allowance, as you expect to make allowance for yours. Don’t ex pect him to change his tastes and 1 his habits to coincide with yours.

"And finally, my dear, drive with a. light rein. Don’t make marriage oppressive. Don’t deny your husband every bit of freedom. Don’t argue. Don’t quarrel. And keep up the love, making. Before marriage the man does the courting. After marriage the woman has to do it, if it is done. But, if she does, she never has to go to Reno.” DOROTHY DIX. (Copyright. 1936.) My Neighbor Says: March 17 is early enough to plant flower seeds in the house, Planted earlier they require more frequent transplanting. When cleaning Sut a fireplace sprinkle tea leaves among the ashes. This will prevent the dust from flying about and will keep the room wonderfully clean. This hint should be remembered for a sick room. Never use a damp or wet cloth or holder in removing a hot dish from the oven or stove. A dry one prevents the heat from pene trating and scorching the fingers. When making griddle cakes, melt 2 tablespoons of shortening and add to the batter. This eliminates all need of greasing the griddle, saves time and there is no smoke. (Copyright. 1936.) —«4 — Alluring Daytime Frock Unusual Yoke Extends Over Shoulder, 'Flaring Into Chic Little Caps.

BY EMILY POST. r\EAR Mrs. Post: At a family din ^ ner recently my married sister iad the waitress place before us, ifter the meat course, a finger bowl on ;he dessert plate, on which were also i dessert spoon and fork. Being her :rotchety bachelor brother (who is levertheless devoted to her) I ques ioned her service and contended that he finger bowl should be served sep irately. She held that it was not rregular to serve it this way in a iimple house, thereby expediting serv ce by letting each person at table emove his finger bowl and use the )late under it for dessert. Is my lister right? . Answer: Your sister is entirely ight. In fact, what is known as ■aouDie' service or tne nnger dowi following the dessert course was, until a comparatively short time ago, known as hotel service and in every well appointed house the correct dessert was “single” service—namely, a des sert plate, on that a doily, on that a glass saucer, on that a matching finger bowl; on either side of the finger bowl a fork and a spoon. One lifted off the finger bowl and ate on the glass saucer. The used sau cers were then removed two at a time and fruit was eaten on the plate that remained. At present, many peo ple have the finger bowl brought in on the glass saucer with no plate under it—a custom that is very ugly, since it saucer without a plate under it is both out of scale and unsuitable. The present fashion Is first a des sert plate with fork and spoon, then the finger bowl on a fruit plate, sometimes with a fruit knife and fork and no doily. The single serv ice is much more practical in a simple house, since it saves exchang ing plates one at a time. In fact, since one leaves the table at once, nothing at all need be removed. * * * * Dear Mrs. Post: (1) When coffee Is served at the dining table, should guests be called upon to remove the coffee from the tray presented by thte waitress, or should the waitress place the coffee on the table at the place of each person? (2) Should cream be served with the coffA? Answered) It should he put at each place by the waitress. (2) Cor rectly, after-dinner coffee is black, but, since many people like it with cream, cream is proffered almost as often as not. * * * * Dear Mrs. Post: Should a gentle man assist the lady on his left or on his right at dinner? Answer—The one on his right—un less the one on his left needs as sistance and the one on his right does not. * * * * Dear Mrs. Post: What is the perfect hostess expected to do when she sees her guests setting their beverage glasses down on her finest table tops and knows all the time that no matter how quickly these wet spots are wiped away after they leave, there will be the inevitable white rings for ever after that? Answer—She should buy coasters or small placpues and see that one is put under each glass. Should a care less person lift it off, she would have to put it back. This sounds almost as bad perhaps as trying to watch for flies, fly-swatter in hand. But as a matter of fact most people will put their glasses back in their coasters. If they don’t, then she will have to be a glass watcher. (Copyright, 1936.) * Swept-Back Hair Styles Flattering Sihart Coiffure Calls for Smooth Brow and Clear Skin. BY ELSIE PIERCE. I^ANGS and curls are still seen; but the swept-back-from-the-brow style seems to have taken. It is flat tering to young and old alike, par ticularly if the features are good and the skin smooth and unwrinkled. The forehead is very much in evi i utrnuc uiese uays, ana women are re | minded that it is not only part of the face, but to be considered as a facial feature. Like the neck, the forehead is too often sadly neglected. Women seem to concentrate on keeping that part of the face beautiful which ap pears below the brow and above the jawline. Often there is a line of de marcation at the chin and another near the forehead. But. we predict the new hair styles will do much to make women aware of the brow and forehead and as a result you’ll see greater improvement of these features e’er long. In our facial review lessons re cently we made special note of the fact that a headband is an important accessory to the successful home facial. Such a headband when prop erly adjusted permits the forehead right up to the very hairline to be treated with the rest of the face. Cleanse with cream, pat with tonic] apply an emolient cream or anti wrinkle cream to keep wrinkles at bay. If the forehead needs bleaching there are any number of excellent ready-prepared bleaching creams and lotions. Lemon juice, peroxide, other vege table juices are a few of the home | made bleaches that are readily pre j pared and very effective. An occa | sional mask bleach Is splendid. My bulletin on “Bleaching Masks That Can Be Made at Home” will cheer | fully be sent to readers on receipt of stamped (3-cent>, return-addressed | envelope with request. You’ll find that the placid face | usually has a smooth brow—a fore , head as free from lines as that of a m o rKlo rtoti.n m._ «■ — -- wuu iivjyfiii must be prepared for furrow’s. Try your best not to scowl, squint or frown. Very often eyestrain causes | frowning. It is wise to consult an oculist, not only to avoid premature wrinkles, but also to avoid premature eye trouble. Apart from wrinkles, the next of fender is shine on the forehead. The same shine that makes its perch on the nose. There are fine powders, astringent and special anti-shine preparations on the market and these are as effective and should be used on forehead as well as nose. A smooth, clear brow adds loveliness to a face. (Copyright 1036. i -•-— Psychology BY DR. JESSE W. SPROYVLS. Will Power. IN AN old psychology text I find this statement: “Will power is the mighty monarch who sits upon the throne of human intellect and sways our destinies for good or evil.” Read this definition carefully. And then j reread it. Then take some time to j think about it. That’s how they used to explain ^ psychology. By using beautiful words j and phrases which referred to some | thing mysterious. Psychologists are not talking that way nowadays. If you look through the more recent texts on psychology you find very little reference to will ! power. It seems that the old re spectable term has almost lost Its : fascination, and I suppose it should. | For it really explains nothing. Some say that will power is that something which you create for your self. Before you do something you think it over. Then you go into ac tion. You might then say that you “willed” the act. On the other hand, if you thought a proposed action over and didn’t do anything about it you w'ere merely "reflecting.” Thinking then is of two sorts, “willing” and “reflecting.” But perhaps this dis tinction isn’t worth anything, either. (Copyright. 1036.) Bath Room Don’ts Don’t leave a small child alone in a bath room to wash if the water is exceedingly hot. Don’t let a child jump immediately into a very hot oath with cold, wet feet after Winter play. Don’t wash your face with water just before going out in Winter or it will become chapped. Soaking Handkerchiefs. Always soak handkerchiefs in water to which salt has been added for half an hour before washing. This makes the job much easier.
