All of Us, Old and Young, Need Diversion—Dr. Copeland
NOTHING SO DREARY
AS LIFE’S MONOTONY
Nerves Become Ragged, Tempers Totter Under the
Strain and Bright Brains Are Dulled by the
Steady Grind of Existence Unrelieved by Play.
By ROYAL S. COPELAND, M. D.
United States Senator from New York.
Former Commitstoner of Health, yew York Ctty.
ONLY a few weeks ago the world was enjoying the holiday season.
Perhaps the members of the families who pay the bills are less
enthusiastic just now about the holiday season than they were
on Chriitmaa morning. But they’ll be happy again when another
Christmas rolls around.
The fact is, we need diversion. need a
change from the ordinary routine of life. In
deed, we need frequent changes. I say in all
reverence, that the Sabbath has a significance
beyond the religious one. It is a day of diversion.
Of course, I do not mean by this that it need
be made a day of celebration and riotous living.
That is not tha sort of diversion I have in mind.
But it is intended to be a day different from
the other six days. It should be a day of relief
from the monotony of existence.
I cannot speak too strongly about the need
for diversion. It is absolutely essential to make
provision for regular and frequent changes from
the routine of life, no matter how agreeable
that routine may be.
There is nothing so depressing, so nerve
wearing, go temper-breaking and so deadly as
■the steady grind of existence. The best machine in the world must
have its periods of overhauling. Few engines ever made could run from
New- \ork to San Francisco without stopping. Overhauling, oiling,
fuelling and repairing are necessary. The only safe way to run the
engine is to nave periods ana places,
for regular stops.
Certainly this is the case with the
human machine. Not alone does the
body rqflujre these periods of rest,
hat the brain and aervoua system
demand them.
1 have seen many • friend of

Vi hat are you doing to vary the
•monotony of your life? Do you
go out to lunch with a friend occa
sionally? Do you take a walk In a
new part of town? Do you walk In
the woode or go Into the attic to
see how things are there? When did

Do you ever hear a preacher other

Building the New Home with Home-Making Helps |
an Eye to the Future By Wanda Barton j
SPRING homebuilders are busyl
with blueprint* and catalogue*
r*p:erenting both Indoor and
outdoci- inteicsts. It la the furnleh
Inga that concern the housekeeper
most after the h.g building problems
begin to thin out. Right here is
where the thing* we want built-in
must be planned so that there axe
no building extra*. These extras
are much like the mysterious
"findings ' on the dressmaker e bills,
hard to locate yet materially in
creasing the costa
Perhaps we cannot afford all new
fumahings the firat year after
building, a© plan the built-in things
so they w ill look well when the
new furniture really comes. We will
find that in harmony with the style
of the perch and entrance, wooden
benches at either aide of the door
are decorative and charming. Also
benches of cem*nt or stone, around
part of the rorch wall or railing,
will save buying porch furniture
right away. One porch on a re
cently discovered model house was
all cemented, with a cement table
in the center and benches at the
wall around the outside.
Built inside the hallway was a
tall cathedral bench with hat clos
ets above and a seat that opens 00
overshoes and such things may be
tucked inside. Then along the aide
wall were Rat closets with sliding
doors to hold all outside wraps.
These make excellent permanent
featurea. Under the etairs were |
closets to take caxe of golf sticks
and that sort of stuff. Opposite
the cathedral beneh a glass with a
consol table underneath and at each
end a straight backed cathedral
’chair made a dignified and com-4
pi«-te hall furnishing.
If the hall should be square then
maybe a fisldstnne fireplace Will fit
in with a built in settle at cither
side.
ao far we enter quite reasonably
into the furnishing proposition.
Then we come to the living room
and w-e may repeat the settles at
either aide of the fireplace in dif
ferent shapes. ma\he earni-circular,
if the room permits, and took
shelves may be built In at either
s:de of the fireplace from focr to
ceiling. The space back of the door
that opens into the next room may
he filled with a bank cf three
draweis. with book shelves above.
Such space Is often wasted If there
are deep window seats book shelves
may be built in at either side while
the seat may be lifted to use as
magazine boxes
In the dining room a built-in
sideboard may 1* a permanent fea
ture copied from an ©Id Engliah de
sign. A Georgian model, perhaps,
with closets for bottles and drawers
for linens and silver, with an ample
top for set pieces. Corner closets
are charming additions, and a bench
under the window will not take up
chair apace, but add a cozy feature
to the room.
In the kitchen, built-in eloeeta are
► far better than anything that can
l>e purchased for they fit in tha
spaces and can be modeled after
any we hav e seen and like L Built
in settles for the back porch are
always desirable.
Tainted furniture is best for use
until the day conies to get the
best which we have always longed
for. and it is surprising how many
lovely pieties are coming unpa!nted
and at fair prices to choose from.
It is so easy to concentrate on color
schemes for each room in painting
this stuff. It won't be ultra and
distressingly modern, perhaps. Tiut
it will be homey and attractive at
small cost. Small wardrobe*, desks,
chest# of drawers, book cases, all
sorts of chairs and benches are
available, and many thlrgs not car
ried in regular stock caa be
ordered.
Lots of our old piece# that have
grown shabby may be scraped and
painted to go with the new. Thi*
ta not an extravagant thing to do
for it is simply making harmonious
use of what we have. For the first
year the walls will probably be
tinted, ready to point up and finish
as liked when the house haa settled.
This gives the color keynote for
the furnishings. Slip old chairs
temporarily if they are not worth
doing over.

LOSING A FEW POUNDS
BY SENSIBLE DIETING
Miss Huddleston Recommends a Week's Trial of the
Old Pineapple and Lamb Chop Combination for
Women Who Are Slightly Overweight.
By JOSEPHINE HUDDLESTON
NO doubt you are all exhausted listening to the many ways of
losing weight, but today I’m going back to the pineapple and
lamb chop diet because I know that if you want to lose a few
pounds in a great hurry, you can do so without injury to the entire
system. But don’t overdo it!
We are all firmly convinced that the ex
tremely angular figure is of the fast and that
curves are definitely established. By this I don’t
mean that the plump figure Is fashionable, but
the bones must be well covered, and the flesh
evenly distributed over the entire body.
When the figure is in proportion, our pos
ture improves, and since posture means the way
we stand, walk, dance and lounge, or the position
of the body at all times, it is readily understood
how very important these two things are in at
taining or retaining a graceful figure.
We can’t ail be beautie3 and so win a place
among those famous for face and features; but
we can keep our bodies in proportion if we are
willing to give ourselves over to a little effort
for a few days.
The pineapple and lamb chop diet is a splendid
method of keeping the weight under control. A
daily check-up on the weight of the average woman will show that the
scale fluctuates. If the normal weight is 130 pounds one day, the
scale? may give the weight as 104 or 128 pounds a few days later.
Four pounds either above or below normal may not be noticeable

Advice to Girls
By Annie Laurie
Dear annie laurie
I am a girl twenty-on® years
old. About a year ago I mat a you**
man about my own age, and went
with him for about four months.
Just a few days ago I heard from
a friend of mine that thia young
man tad been seriously ill for some
time. Naturally. I felt bad. and. af
ter hesitating awhile, decided to cal]
hie mother and find out how be waa.
Do you think it wfaa proper for me
to call? Do you think it would be
all right for me to send him flowers,
with wishes for bis speedy recovery?,
MART ANN.
MART ANN: Perfectly proper for
you to CAM aadamoet thoughtful
to send him the flowers, or maga
zines or books.
Dear annus laurie
*1 am a school girl and have
many opportunities to go places with
boy*. I would appreciate It very
much if vou would please answer
this question for me.
When an usher in a theater asks,
“How far front?'* who should an
swer. the boy or the girl?
2. When in a restaurant who
should give the order to the waiter,
the girl or the fellow?
3. About how many times a week
should a girl see the same fellow?
(Entertain him at her home?)
ELGINA.
ELGIN A: 1. The boy consults the
girl as to her wishes, and then
advises the usher.
2. The young man glv es the order
to the waiter, after consulting the
lady's wishes.
3. As you are a school girl, the
calls should be limited to such eve
nings as you do not have classes the
following day. If your parents allow
you to have callers, they should
lea e at a fairly early hour In
order that you may have time for
your studies, and be able to get to
school in time the following day.
Frankly, though. I feel that a school
girl should not be allowed too much
liberty in the way of callers. Fri
day and Saturday evening* should be
sufficient.' for then you have no
classes the following da>s.
.on some women, depending entirely
l upon just how evenly the surplus
weight is distributed. But if the
new pounds happen in the wrong
spot, the entire figure is thrown out
of line.
So for the overweight woman the
pineapple and lamb chop diet should
be Indulged in for a week or ten
days, at which time the weight will
no doubt be normal. Then if a
weather eye is kept on sweets, fats
and starches, the newly lost pounds
will not return so quickly. If, how
ever, you find them creeping back,
return to the diet one day each
week. This should be sufficient to
keep the weight down to normal.
The only time to go on any
“trick” diet, such as the pineapple
aiid lamb chop. Is when only a few
pounds are to be lost and can be
accomplished In a week or ten da vs.
The pineapple and lamb chop diet
follows:
For breakfast eat two slices of
pineapple (either fresh or canned),
two slices of toast and either tea. or
coffee.
For luncheon, one or two broiled
lamb chops, two slice* of pineapple,
two slices of toast end whatever
you wish to drink.
The dinner is the same as the
luncheon menu.
A pound each day should be loet
after the fourth day of this diet.
Bating between meals la taboo
unless, of course, you get hungry.
' than an apple or a g1a*s of orange
Juice may be taken. Since the pine
apple and lamb chop diet is for
quick results, however, the pounds
trill be more easily lost If no food
is taken between meals.
Women who have more than
five or six pounds to lose should
not use such & diet as the one
above, but one that has b*en
especially prescribed by a physician
. for theiir particular needs.

frequently that Dicky had taksn his

Now Frank didn't think th's half

should turn her back, to leave hie
bed and thus make hsmself sick for
a week. Knarf viewed thw inten

at all to stay at home for & week,
particularly as it meant lying at the
foot of hi# master's bed. Therefore
when, the moment Frank's mother
turned her back, the bad Frank
started to slip out of bed. Kxvarf
