Advice To
Mv Dear Annie Laurie: There
Is to be a social gathering In a
short time and each girl Is sup
posed to Invite a young man to
accompany her. Kindly advise me
as to how to ask one to escort
me. R. U M.
When you decide which man you
desire as your escort, write him a
note asking him to go with you,
naming the date and the hour at
which you wish him to call for you.
I am assuming that you do not go
with any yquns man In particular,
for you probably would not need to
be asking mv advice In that case.
I am telling you to write because it
i rather embarrassing for a clrl to
ive a spoken invitation.
Dear Annie Laurie 1. Please
tell me something Interesting to
talk about when you are with a
2. Is It proper to ask boys for
friendship links?

girl, and I want to know how to
win some frionds.
4. There Is a boy who .lives
near me. and we like each other,
t v-fivt speak. Neither of us
knows why we are mod. How
can 1 gain his friendship again?
I am answering your three letters
together because you said you wero
chumi, you know. You will notlco
that there aro several questions I
don't answer, but that's because
I have already done it over and
over ago)n in this column.
First of all, what to talk about
with a boy. Just' everyday things,
of course. You don't need to dis
cuss the European war or the num
ber of industries in America or any-
inins iiae mat. chick to inings
you know nbout motion pictures
and sports and theaters or anything
in whlph you're interested.
I should scarcely think it right to
ask boys for xrlcndshlp links. Walt
uptll they offer them.
Unattractive girls are not tluj
least popular. If you are the typo
that is easy to get along with, and
there aro some ttlrla who get angry
at everything that Is said, you
should have no trouble In making
f i lends or In keeping them After
you know them.
SurprUc tho. boy by speaking to
him next time you meet. This busi
ness of getting angry and not know
ing why you are stamps you as
belns very childish, If you think
you arc enough of a grown-up tu
have boy-friends you should benave
like a little lady and not a little girl.

Baroness Irmgard von Kottenthal, the Croation interpretative dan

dance. Fascinated by the grace of the players during the course of the
first game wh,ich she witnessed she decided to incorporate some ofHhe
most artistic poses in a classic-baseball dance.
"The Temptatfpn of Eve" was the result. In the picture shown here

pea, of a pale, yellowish hue. This
Is the little gland once thought oy
Descartes and other philosophers to
be the seat of the soul.
Modern science' 'has regarded the
pineal body as the remnant of an un
developed th,lrd eye. Physiologists,
however, have rather discredited the
doctrine of 'evolution, and by experi
ment 'have shown that the strange
Utile gland exerts a markel Influ
ence over all the other tissues of tho
human skeleton, particularly mental
and sexual growth.
Dr. Carey Tratt McCqrd of Detroit
has Just undertaken av series of ex
periments with small animals, which
indicate beyond cavil that pineal
gland substance rrom cattle, given as
food, causes precocious development
of young animals.
Chickens, puppies, calves, and guinea
pigs to the nurriber of 303 Were given
pineal glands as food. The first essen
tial result of the experiment was to
show that pineal glands taken from
grown-up creatures are of little or
no value.
Experiments On Younf.
Pineal gland substance, however,
taken from calves and young ani
mals yielded at once very Important
results. The young creatures fed
with young glands grew and maturod
rapidly and, acquired the full weight
and sexual development of adults In a
few weeks' time.
Strango to say, the instant the
young guinea pigs or other animals
became thus full grown and parental,
the pineal gland lost its effects. Al
though Dr. McCord tried hard he
could not produce giants or other ex
traordinary features. The extract
from the pineal gland sterns potent
only to produce proeocltv and full
development In a short space of time.
Besides feeding the gland, and in
order to escape the action of the pep
eln and other enzymes of tho stomach
and liver, hypodermic Injections of
pineal glands from lambs were ad
ministered to forty-eight animals.
There was no great advantage mani
fest In this method over mouth feed
