American Way ot Lite
Penetrates Deeply Into Many German Homes BERLIN, July 8 (NANA).— The American way of life has penetrated into almost every Ger man home in Western Berlin. Acfults who once knew nothing and cared less about the United States now find they have a fund of knowledge learned from their, children. - The teen agers collect every. United States magazine they can find and try desperately hard toj wear their clothes in the manner of Americans. Boys roll their; patched and torn trousers up above their ankles and wear what are meant to look like baseball caps on the backs of their heads. All chew gum if they get the chance. Vocabularies Expanding. These youngsters also have con tests as to who can learn the most American words in a week. Their American vocabulary no longer consists solely of "O. K.”j and "any gum. chum?” One exasperated mother said every time she spoke to her 10 -year-old boy he replied, "so what?” and the number of chil dren who "don't give a hoot” bodes; ill for the future generations if they know what they are saying. All the smartest shoes designed In Berlin now have an ankle strap. Short-legged pajamas shown in so many advertisements are all the rage here. As one storekeeper said: "They are pretty and save material.” Stores are full of goods portray ing the owners’ idea of America. Wastebaskets with a thin card-; board base are smothered with gaily colored pictures of automo biles or of the Grand Canyon, cut from magazines and then pasted on and shellacked. Jitterbugging Popular. While newspapers decry jitter bugging, showing cartoons of can nibals doing just that, the younger generation has taken to it with a will. German girls no longer are interested in waltzing; they ap- j pear only happy when being thrown headlong across a room, caught, bounced and thrown again. Every boy has what he thinks Is a baseball bat. Father has sacrificed a piece of precious fuel to whittle a round stick. Many times this isn’t shaped, but the boys are happy just the same. ■When they haven’t a ball they bunch up sheets of paper and play j with that.

That’s why she chooses Endocreme. Because Endo creme is made by the specialist in hormone cosmetics. Originated and tested by doctors. Used and ap proved by many thousands women since 1937. No hormone cream can do more to help give you younger-looking skin. If you’re asking for proof... not a promise . . . ask for Endocreme. $3.50, plus 20% Federal tax. Cosmetics—Street Floor 7th, 9th & [ St NA. 9800 r-- • i Along Our Street with Aunt Penny Several tennis players in the j neighborhood have been work ing for months on a court in the lot just around the corner. It’s finished now and busy most of the time. I was walk ing by this afternoon and stopped for a short time to watch a “singles” game. Two other folks arrived while I was there and the first couple suggested they join them in a “doubles” match. So no one had to wait for the court — they all shared it together. This same principle applies to lots of things. Take party line telephone service, for ex ample. Just the other night I read that three out of every four telephone subscribers have party-line service. The reason,of course,is that party lines mean more service for more people sooner. And I’ve found that party-line service is good service when everyone ases it “sharingly.” The Chesapeake A Potomac Telephone Company. ' '• i OUR FAMOUS BEST-SELLER!
