Evvy and I had taken a very early |
tea and it was only a little after 5 j
when 1 got home from my unhappy j
hour of disillusionment.
I hurried into my bedroom and :
began to take off my hat —then II
stood motionless with oine pin in my j
hand and reflected upon the blun- j

Item: The climax that had given |
Betty every right to think she was i
not wanted or needed here and was;
welcome to pursue her intimacy with |
Virginia and to forget me. t |
At this stage of itemizing with j
niyself and my loneliness, I removed .
the other pin from my hat, put away
the outer trappings used for my;
afternoon with Evvy and addressed |
myself sternly: I
"Anne, you've been taking what i
you insisted was 'something just as |
good' in place of real friendship. You j
were suspicious of Betty just because j
she was so kind. Now 1 guess Betty's j

In answer to my own questions,
I went to the phone and called Vir
ginia's apartment. Phoebe answered.
"They've uone out," she replied,
almost petulently, when I asked for
Virginia or Betty. "They're going
to have dinner together. They left
me here alone."
"Then you come straight over
here. dear. Mow can you be alone
when you have us?" 1 asked with
pity for another lonely creature.
'Oh. I'd love to. Anne —-but I'm

So I gave Phoebe till 7.30 to make
herself pretty and sweet, and then
turned from the phone and her de

What was I to do about Jim? I

and Virginia were growing very inti

opened. Neal dashed in and caught
me in his sturdy young arms.
| I wasn't alone at all— I had Neal!
"Babhs, what do you think of
• your old fox, Nenl?" he cried. "Two
weeks at his job. and doesn't he get
'i a promotion already: Forty per,
1 that's what he gets. Guess he could
almost support a wife, hey?"
There was a note of deep anxiety
in his voice, but X didp't fully sense
it at the time.
"Promotion already?" I cried. "It's
wonderful, Nenl darling! I'll have
to kiss you for that. Tell your Babba
just how it happened."
"Well, it's like this," Neat's voice'
was unsteady. "So many of the men
are leaving, and they're afraid a
| good accountant will be offered an
i other job. So they advanced ine to
| forty, with a promise of tifty in six
i months."
"Oh, I see. So many of the men
1 are being drafted that they want to
j pay their boys well." I returned
easily, remembering what a wizard
j Neal was at figuring.
At that Neal turned his head away.
I "Babbs, I could get married, hon-
I est now, couldn't 1?"
I laughed.
"You could, indeed. But how sorry
you'd be in a week or so. You seem
to be taking your latest crush seri
ously. Who is she, laddie?"
4 "This isn't a crush. A fellow isn't
certain of much nowadays. That's
why he ought to make sure of his
happiness when he can. If a girl

Neal flung off the hand that was
| stroking his red curls, and with the
same motion flung himself to his
• feet.
j "I come to you—and you laugh at
; me!" he cried bitterly. I
J Then I knew that Neal had a realj
problem. Not a boy's flickering de
sire for sympathetic attention.
I followed him and catching his |
hand in mine, pulled him round to f
face me.
"Neal, you've more to tell —I can ;
see that. What is It'.'"
Again he flung me off —almost;
wearily. Then he berame alert us
a key turned in the lock and Jim i
limped into the room. ' ,
Jim stooped to-kiss me. Out of i
the tail of my eye I could see Neal j
standing taut, expectant. •
"What's the matter, young fel- i
low?" Jim turned to Neal with real j
concern. 'You look as if you'd
something on your mind. Anything 1
I can do?"
Weal's eyes flashed. His voice j ■
as he replied held warm gratitude to ' j
Jim and reproach for me.
"There sure is! You're a brick to | 1
see it without my asking. I'd like a! 1
j talk with you—alone, Jim."
Jim's eyes met mine for a moment, j
j They held a question 1 couldn't an- j
swer. I didn't know what was my j
brother's need.
Then Jim said: |
"Come on into the bedroom while |
I get my slippers on."
He meant his words to seem natu
ral, casual and to assure me against
feeling shut out.
Then he limped into the bedroom
and Neal followed. The door closed
behind them—and I was on the out
side again.

A Series of Plain Talks to
President of thr Parents Association.
(Copyright, the Parents Association. Inc.)
It ig most natural for children.to i
turn a deaf ear to the word, "Don't."
Many children will run errands;
willingly but are hard to stop from |
doing things once they have started. I
For example, one mother writes j
to me:
"My boys aged four and six do j
what they are told fairly Well but
persist in doing what they are told j
not to do. If I ask one of them to I
bring me an article, he brings it. If!
I say, 'Close the door,' he closes it. ;
But. if he is playing with the door I
and wants to continue, I can request j
a dozen times and he wouldn't close' t
it. Please tell me what 1 have done ;
wrong and how I should manage in I
the future?"
You may not have done anything |
especially wrong, it simply is a na
tural tendency In children to want to
continue what they ulready are do
ing, particularly if that activity is
furnishing them pleasure.
Of course, in the example that you
cited, if you actually requested the
boy several times to close the door,
you might improve on this point in
the future. After you make your very
first request, and he ignores it, do
not follow this up with another un
der the same conditions. Either you
should have the boy come directly
in front of you or you go directly to
the boy and after securing his un
divided attention, then state your
command in a low, expectant tone,
suggesting that you mean strictly
Make it an invariable rule that |
neither of your boys gets a bit of
pleasure out of trying to continue a
line of action after you request him
to stop. Do not allow any excep
tions if you can help it.
When any child finds that his
mother does not know how to deal
with his delayed action, but merely
repeats her requests, he falls into
the habit of being slow as naturally
as can be. Only the opposite, strict
policy advocated will change the
habit after it has started to grow.
Give your boys the idea, unmis
takably, that you want to see them
have a good time. Don't try to give
them this idea by merely telling
them so; show them! Suggest new
things for them to do, which they
will enjoy playing. With boys as
young as yours, it is an excellent
plan to have them jump for you and
run for you--not in competition with
each other, but one at a time —and
approve them generously.
This will get their confidence; they
will like you better; they will realize
that you are indeed interested in
them and their pleasure and then
when you tell them not to do some
particular thing, they will be much
more inclined to listen to you.
Rook ahead whenever possible and
manage to . occupy • their minds in
some agreeable way aforehand so
that it will not be natural for them
to want to do forbidden things. But
if they have already started, suggest
some new thing as soon after as pos

feverish, breath bad, restless, doesn't

because it is perfectly harmless, and
In a few hours ull this constipation

waste will gently move out ot the

carefully and see that it la made by
the "California Fig Syrup Company."
Do not be too strict. It is a good
idea, when they ask to do something,
to grant part of their request. For
example, if they want to play in
some new place say, "Yes. you can
play out there as far as the big tree,
but don't go beyond that." This
shows the idea. Keep them on

Common Ways of
Wasting Fat
To "eat fat just to save it" is as
unwise as it is ditllcult. A small
piece of bread left on a plate can
be eaten to save it from ending its
day In the garbage can, but fat is
not so easily and judiciously saved
from waste.
The Food Administration points
out that all the many ways of wast
ing fat should be thoughtfully avoid
ed by the housewife.
Dou you waste fat in any of these
1 By serving baked ham with large
portions of fat on the edge.
By throwing away fat trimmed
from beef or other fresh meat.
1 By serving large butter or mar
, garine balls to each person.
By using heavy cream.
• By frying food In deep fat.
i By frying food when It would lie
1 as well or better to bake or stew it.
: By making pies or other pastries
when simpler desserts would be
' more nourishing.
Think it over, and see that these
sins are wiped off your slate.

I You Can't Brush or
Wash Out Dandruff
The only sure way to get rid of
dandruff is to dissolve It, then you
destroy it entirely. To do this, get
about four ounces of ordinary, liquid
arvon: apply it at night when retir
ing; use enough to moisten the scalp
and rub it in gently with the finger
1 tips.
Do this tonight, and by morning
i I most. If not all, of your dandruff
| will be gone, and three or four more
I applications will completely dissolve
aiul entirely destroy every single
■ sign and trace of it, no matter how
much dandruff you may have.'
You will find, too, that all ' king
and digging of the scalp will stop
! at once, and your hair will be fluffy,
' lustrous, glossy, silky and soft, and
, look and feel a hundred rites better.
You can get liquid anon at any

never fails to do the work
