Why Grow Old?
Requests for Nine-Day Diet Swamp Office Eleni, fashion editor df The Star, takes her turn at helping to count and forward "just a few" of the letters received in one day requesting copies of Josephine Lowman's nine-day diet. In the first six days that the leaflet was offered/the letter count touched the 3,000 mark—and they're still coming! Along with spring housecleaning must come the feminine urge to refurbish and streamline the figure. And judging from the number of requests that swamped the Woman's Page during the week that Josephine Lowman was offer ing her Nine-Day Wonder Reduc ing Diet, both in The Star and in leaflet form—there are plenty of figure-conscious ladies in Wash ington and vicinity. Members of the Women’s Page staff practically dropped their own stories and feature assignments to pitch in and count and forward the thousands of letters to Miss ,Lowman's syndicate, where the requests are filled and mailed. As | past experience has taught us that .the syndicate, too, gets swamped, | we think it wise to warn you that it takes some little time for them to mail the leaflets to you. There fore, if you are in a special hurry to lose those pounds, and failed i to save the diet menus and ex ercises as they appeared daily in The Star—May 9 to May 17. in clusive—you'd be smart to obtain any missing issues of the paper, and fill in your set in that way. iThe back issues are kept only fol ia short time, so don't put this off | if you want to make sure of the ! diet in a hurry. (And what were we doing around here w'hen not counting Lowman letters? Why—opening Readers' Clearing House ones, of course! > —B.C. Readers’ Clearing House WATER GLASS FOR FLOOR. Editor’s Note — As several readers reported no success with the water glass treatment lor cement floors, we contacted Mrs. G. A. B„ Alexandria, who had sent in the full directions, as given to her by a friend. She in turn discussed the problem w ith the friend, and found that the trouble lay in the fact that the friend neglected to tell her the water glass should be di luted to a thin mixture—1 part to 4 of water. This soaks into the cement, and then the oil mixture and wax could be_ap plied. As Mrs. B. mentioned in her first letter, she had not tried this herself, but was re peating directions given to her. She regrets the error exceed ingly, as does RCH. ‘WHAT’LL I DO?’ (From Mrs. R. J. A.. ' Takoma Park.) To Mrs. E. B. H., Alexandria: To (answer “What’ll I Do?” for my j2*2-year-old boy. I have part of a | closet not accessible to him set | aside for quiet toys or things that are of little value unless all the | pieces are there or things that need a little supervision. For ex : ample crayons, paper, modeling ; clay, scissors, old magazines, “espe icially nice” picture books, sewing 'cards, pegboard. puzzles, beads to j string, paints, etc. For that fussy time late in the afternoon or quiet time when baby is asleep, I bring out these treasures, usually giving a choice among several things. It works! You can make puzzles, pegboards and sewing cards your self at home. TO . UNMOLD JELLO. (From M. P. D„ Washington.) Wet left hand, turn mold upside down on left hand, hold pan under hot water spigot a couple seconds, shake and out comes the jello. Do not grease mold. The hot water melts the jello clinging to outside edge of mold and re leases it. If hand is wet jello will not stick to hand. * * * * COTTON BAG PATTERN. (From Mrs. J. J. O., Washington.)
