notes, someone could
write for her across
her black-bordered visiting card, “Thanks for
your kind sympathy” or “beautiful flowers."
TELEPHONE. What is the proper way for
a maid to answer the telephone?
Mrs. Post: “Mrs. Jones's house” or “apart
ment.” “Mrs. Jones’s residence” always has
sounded pretentious and is, therefore, in bad
When answering the home telephone
yourself, is it better to say, “hello” or
“Mrs. Brown speaking”? The first is usual
and some people feel it is more friendly.
Others think “Mrs. Brown speaking” is
more informative, causes less confusion.
Mrs. Post: “Mrs. Brown speaking” is
. more efficient, but she may not always want to
reveal who is speaking. Therefore, “hello” is
8till the correct answer.
WHICH PLATE? When relishes, pickles,
celery, jams and cheeses are served with a
dinner, should they be placed on the
bread and butter plate, the
salad plate or dinner plate?
Mrs. Post: If thev are to he
eaten on the bread, place them
on the bread and butter plate;
if they are to be eaten with the
meat, put them on the dinner
plate; if they go with the salad,
then put them on the salad plate. *
WEEK-ENDER. When a girl is invited by
a boy to spend a week end at his mother’s
house, may she accept?
Mrs. Post: Yes, if she.receives an invita
tion from his mother.
GREETER. When having a party at home,
should the husband or wife greet the
guests at the door?
Mrs. Post: The husband.
STORK NOTES. Is it necessary, or even
customary, for the parents to send near
relatives announcements of a new baby?
Mrs. Post: The word necessary is perhaps
overemphatic, but it is certainly customary
for the father, the grandparents, or whoever
may be present, to telephone the news imme
diately to members of both families and most
intimate friends. Notifying others is entirely
a question of personal inclination.
WHO SPEAKS FIRST? Should a girl
meeting a boy say “hello” first, or is it the
boy’s duty to say “hello” to her?
Mrs. Post: According to strait-laced prin
ciples of etiquette, the girl should speak to the
boy first, but in this modern day of camarad

be absurd.
WHEN TO KNIT. Is it per
missible for a woman to knit
when guests are present?
Mrs. Post: If she can do it
without paying any attention to
her work — but when only very
intimate friends are present.
COURTESY. When a guest does not seem
to appreciate anything done for him or
does not thank his hostess properly, is
there any way of making him see his lack
of courtesy?
Mrs. Post: Yes, of course, by never in
viting him again!
