Is Chance the
Dictator of YourDiet? Learn the Fuel Requirements of Your Body a«d Avoid Nutritional Failure fcy R. S. COPELAND, M. D. U. S. Senator from New York. Former Commissioner of Health Few York City. IT has been said that the normal person, when free to choose, will select the food best suited to his needs. It is true enough that most persons will eat enough OR. COPELAND I o o d. Bat whether that I food is of the rijrht kind is entirely another qaea ► tion. On the other hand, there are too many persons who eat too little for the body needs. Diet is a I very impor tant thin*, and you can’t 1 a a v e to chance, to the ciiciaips oi your appetite, or to taste just what is (rood for you. It is not so simple as that. Everyone should learn how to avoid nutritional failure. There are plenty of sources from which to draw information on the subject. The libraries, the schools and the lecture room afford plenty of knowl edge in nutrition. There are four factors that should always be considered. They are the fuel requirements of the body, for which there must be fuel to produce energy; the protein intake; the min eral substances, and the need of vita mins. 1 Increase Calories? ] A normal six-year-old boy requires a total daily average of about 1,600 rah ries. Calories are units indicat ing the energy-Qroduclng value of food. We must have energv to run this machine—the body. Girls re quire a slightly lesser emqsrat, 1.500 calorics. At ten years of age the average boy needs about 2 300 calories daily to furnish him with enough energy' for his so active life. A girl at this age requires about 2.200 calories. During tfce next few years the girl's ncfis slightly exceed the boy's. At fifteen the boy s needs are again greater—3 S00 calorics daily, wfcile a girl s needs are about 3.200.

Three-Minute Journeys By TEMPLE MANNING t ttiding Herd in Hungary |TT is only natural that we of the*' i United States should think of our Western cowboys whenever fthe question of cattle is raised. We *re apt to forget the other great Crazing lands of this world and that (Wherever there is grazing there must t>e horsemen to guard and care for the herds. But if we think of our own eow .boys, we have the picture of at least '©no thing which seems to be well fnigh universal among the tenders of ibeids. They are colorful. Our cow jbors with their ehaps and bright ithirts and bandannas, the gauchoe of the Argentine pampas with their full pantaloons and boots and orna mented belts, the esikos of the Hungarian plains with their whips *nd “trick” hats. We are going to visit the esikos •today. Last of Budapest a short distance, the traveler will find the beginning of the Alford, that great central plain of Hungary. This is fertile end rich, on the whole, but in the northern part lies a great uncul tivated stretch, a moor, known as the Hortobagy or the pusrra. And here we will find the esikos and toheep herders. Although there are definite social distinctions between the various herder* (the cowherd ranking first end the swineherd down at the 'bottom of the scale), there is no great difference In their dress. First and foremost is the “suba” or long cloak of sheepskin. On the skin Bide there will always be found em broidery work — flowers done in bright thread. The heavy fleece makes this a warm garment for the chill nights. Next come the long pleated trousers of linen and the long whit* woolen coat; this, too. Is embroidered in reds and blues. Top Herdsmen of Hungary. plnr this la hta hat which looks like a low derby with a curled brim. Two items of '‘impedimenta" are worthy of mention. One is the whip used by the mounted herdsmen and the other Is the crook erf the sheep herders. The whips are the pride and Joy of the herdsmen and they are works of art. The handles are usually dec orated In one way br another. The shepherd's staff has a metal crook at one end and this crook is so shaped that it will fit neatly around the sheep’s back leg. When a sheep begins to wander the shep herd need only reach out, catch the wanderer’s hind leg and ha la brought back to the fold. , Flowers of the Field By Fanny Darrell SIMPLICITY is the keynote of all that is fine in life. And those of us who can find our joy and happiness in simple things, amid simple surround ings, are blessed, indeed. The sweet smelling country side, a whispering stream hurrying through a fresh, green meadow, birds, whose songs are more sweet than those of any prima donna; butterflies with wings of brighter hue than gleaming sapphires and rubies, a little cottage, made beautiful dv love, a simple garden made glorious by the music of children’s voices—these * are the priceless leaves on the tree of life. Life itself is so beautiful, such a marvelous adven ture, that somehow it seems a pity to complicate it by the introduction of non-essentials. A simple but beau tiful home is so often ruined by an excess of furniture that makes a room look like an auction room, with all the items on parade. A simple gown is spoiled by too many trinkets, some of them not in keeping with sim plicity. A beautiful face is ruined by too much make-up, that obscures rather than brings out its fine points. And love is so often ruined by the introduc tion of unfounded jealousies, bitter words, hastily spoken, and a lack of mutual consideration. -- L I flow beautiful life would be if we could eliminate the things that ane not essential, and for them substi tute the lovely simple things, and be content with them. For it is these simplest things that last the longest, that have come down through the ages unchanged and unspoiled. Find your happiness, therefore, by learn ing not to clutter up your existence with gaudy things, with things that do not matter, and concentrate on the things worth while. Thus you will eliminate discontent and envy, and within a simple little cage you will find the bluebird of happiness waiting to sing his joyous song for you—alone. or >r>“*_ior'OK-*"-v"v~K'"w'TooooooooooooooooooooooooooO'' The Home Kitchen Bt ALICE LYNN BARRY French Dressings Plus THE Great American Balad— meaning lettuce and tomatoes —could be served every day in the year, and yet be different every time, because of the change in the dressing used. French dressing is usually preferred by most persons (especially men) but it doesn't always have to be the same. To begin with, the French dress | ing can be made so as to suit any I taste. Some like it more arid, some I like It more oily. The standard is I as follows: Plain French Dressing. 3 tablespoons oil, 1 tablespoon vinegar. H teaspoon salt. hi teaspoon pepper. Place the salt and pepper in a cold bowl and rub with the oil. then add the vinegar slowly. Use at once. A great improvement on this sim ple sauce Is. to break a small clove of garlic in half, then with a spoon rub the sides of the salad bowl with it before adding the other in gredients. Throw the garlic away after tincturing the bow! with it— tby no means let it remain there. An easy variation to French dress ing is a change in the spice used. Instead of pepper, a little curry or I powdered ginger may be used. Love’s Reawakening By Adele Garrison Phil Veritxen Beams as Mary Assumes the Role of Awed, Infatuated Schoolgirl on Meeting the Handsome Cinema Star. COLIN CAMERON, whom Philip-* ▼eritzen had Just introduced to me. was the type of young man which Dicky calls “God's | gift to •entimentaJ womankind." 'Just above medium height, straight as the traditional arrow, with dark brown hair having Just the slightest suspicion of curl, with features as regular as those of a Greek god. with larsre brown eyes shaded with dark lashes which any debutante might envy, he was. as Harry' Underwood had drawled, "a most be-yew-ti-ful young man.” He had manners—or manner isms—to match his looks, I decided, ! as he bent over my hand with a gesture familiar to thousands of •'talkie’’ fans. And his murmured. "Mrs. Graham. I am glad that Mr. Veritzen has given me thia oppor- i tunity to meet you,” was a perfect thing of its kind, even though his eyes were straying past me to where Mary was smiling up at Philip Ver itzen. The next moment Mr. Veritzen deftly detached him from me and was introducing him to Mary with the words astounding to us who knew of his cavalier treatment of Mary. "You two young people ought to know each other. Broadway's Prince Charming and the street's future queen should have much to chatter about." "I am infinitely flattered,” young Mr. Cameron said graciously, but there was a certain smugness In his voice which betrayed his conviction that the older man had only given him his proper meed of praise, and that Mary was the one who should be thrilled by proximity to greatness. Apparently Mary- was. Her cheeks were flushed, her eyes starry, her manner that of a schoolgirl movie ►fan as she looked at the young man^ and cooed: “You—you—are really Colin Cam eron?" If she had said "You are really the Prince of Wale*?" her voice could not have held more awe-stricken Joy i I started angrily, wondering if the child really had an unsuspected ad miration for cinema actor*. Then I caught sight of Lillian's uplifted eye brows and Harry Underwood's sur reptitious wink at me, and under stood with infinitely lightened spirit*. Mary with the greatest aplomb in the world was eimply holding out that which begin*, "Tell me more about yourself!” uttered In a voice whose every tone sounds the question, though without words. “Is the world really round?" Young Mr. Cameron snapped at the bait—he was a eingularly un wary trout. I decided, although Mary’s loveliness was Justification enough for any young man's •'sitting up and taking notice." ‘Tea. that is my name." he said.

"Every time I can save up enough money for one of your pictures I saw "Splinters of Fate’* six times.” Mr. Cameron beamed fatuously. Mr. Underwood changed a snort of laughter Into a cough, while Lillian standing next to me, murmured from the side of her mouth in the noiseless speech she had perfected: "The anointed little liar! But watch him lap It up! And pipe old Phil!" Mr. Veritzen wds paying no atten tion to any face save Mary's. His own countenance was inscrutable be hind the perfunctory little smile which curved his lips. But there was a glint in his eyes, and I won dered whether it was of approval or of annoyance. And were his eyes, ordinarily keen, able to appraise Alary's apparent adulation at its true value, or were they blinded by his prejudice against the girl? Did he realize how cleverly she was ‘ spoof ing" the young talkie star, or did he think she was in reality as silly in her admiration of him as she ap peared. 1 put aside those questions, how ever. They were trivial, Indeed, be side the all-absorbing one which I knew was present in Lillian's mind, in HarrT*s. and. pre-eminently, in Mary’s, even as she dimpled and smiled and looked up through her lashes with coquettish admiration of young Mr. Cameron in every glance.

The Vicar—and the Hot-Water Bottle Winifred Black’s Story Today THE Reverend Addison J? Wheeler, of Thuralay. Eng land, died the other day In the full ardor of winctlty and repute. He left a letter to his parishioners behind him, snd In that letter he asked his friends to bury with him— what do you think? A picture of his dead wife? No. A lock of his mother's hair? No. A letter from his first sweetheart* Not a bit like it. Well. then. I'll tell you. He asked them to take his hot water bottle and bury it with him in the little green churchyard behind the gray old village church. Some laughed, some frowned, some shook their heads and sighed, but the hot water bottle was buried with the Vicar just as he had asked, for after all, a man's last request is his last request, isn’t it?., no matter how foolish and puzzling it appears to be. Now what's your “hot water hot* tie"? What is the thing that you want buried with you? What is ths last thing you will think of when you take your last look at this gay and amusing world? Will you remember the days of your youth, and the sweetheart you loved better than life itself? Will you think of some yellow old letter which had often warmed your heart? Who's face will you se* in the room—the one who loved you ao dearly, or the one who has forgotten ill about you? ► Or maybe Jt is a mortgage or a bond you’ll want for company, or a little bunch of stocks that haven’t sold so very well, but that were the last thine between you and fear of hopeless poverty. How about the cruel letter you wrote to the little sister who wasn’t quite what she should be, would you like a copy of that put away with you? ► What is it that is your comfort and your Joy. and your pride, and your hope? Be careful; you may be pinning your faith to something even less important than a hot water bot tle. Thing* must look so different to you—when you lie there and you wonder which one of those you loved so dear really misses you and wishes you would come back.

Here *s a Safe Superfluous HairRemedy But Authority Stresses the Ne cessity of Care in Blraching oul Offending Growths. By Josephine Huddleston CONTINUING our superfluous hair discussion I want to give you again the safe methods by which this beauty trouble can be eliminated, tempo rarily at least. Bleaching a slight growth of superfluous hair is the most sensible thing to do. Then if it still proves disfigu ring more drastic steps can be taken. But I always favor the simpler method, at least until one has prov en that it is not effective. JOSEPHINE HUDDLESTON. .reroxiae ana ammonia are usea for bleaching superfluous hair al though the proportions vary ac cording to where the hair is* For the arms, hands and legs one-half (H) tablespoonful of ammonia should be added to eix (6) tablespoonfuia of peroxide. Use ordinary household ammonia and when the two liquids have been beaten until they have a clouded ap pearance the preparation is ready for use. Just take a small pad of cotton and. after saturating it in the per oxide and ammonia solution. pat it lightly over the offending hairs. Let It dry. I_ The Proportions. Rinse off the parts of the body that have been treated and then, tf bleaching has not been as effective as you desire, a second application of the liquid may be used. A much weaker solution of per oxide and ammonia must be used for bleaching hair on the face because of the greater delicacy of the skin there. The proportions for the bleaching solution when It is to he used on the face are: Three (3) tahlespoonful« of peroxide and only six (6) DROPS of ammonia. Please bear this in mind and don't become overly anxious or ambitious and so increase the amount of ammonia. If you do there's much danger of irri tation. I can’t emphasize this warn ing too strongly. Be careful! Application for the face is the same as for other parts of the body. Now. th»n. if the hair still remaips dark after the second application you should try once again before resort ing to actual removal Keeping the hairs moistened with the bleaching solution is essentia! to the success of the treatment. Therefore, if the sec ond tr.al doesn't give d®sircd resul’s, the peroxide and ammonia should be mixed with some sort of base that will insure moisture for a longer period of time. | Avoid Ammonia Fumes. [ Powdered pumice or chalk of mag nesia may be used for the base Chalk of magnesia Is the hase used in beauty parlors for bleaching the hair and is what is commonly known is white henna After measuring the peroxide and ammonia into a small dish, add suf ficent of either preparation to the liquid to make a smooth paste. Smooth this paste over the hair to be bleached and let it remain on un til dry. Rinse It oft in cold water. Should the hair still be noticeable to such an extent that It is disfiguring removal is essential as far as beauty is concerned. TVhen using either the liquid or paste forra of this bleach on the face, small bits of cotton should be placed in the nostrils to prevent the am monia fumes from penetrating. In my next article I will discuss further the removal of superfluous hair. Ihe Stars Say— For Friday June 6. By GENEVIEVE KEMBLE.

What happened was this: They went for a sail on the wisp of a feather. Which they oould easily do since they were light sa a breath dfc air and smaller than a pin. How ever, the feather overturned while they were sailing over a forest and they tumbled Into a deep cave, where they found a lot of queer gnome* with long green beards and green clothes which made them resemble cabbages and heads of lettuce. Indeed, they were garden gnomes, who took special care of all growing things, such as to give string to the string beans, straw to the strawber ries. hluing to the blueberries, a chair to the cherries, water to th* watermelons, a goose for the goose berries. a horse for the horse radish, a spinning wheel for the spinach, a pump for the pumpkins, and so 0n. While the gnomes were explaining all this to the shadows, a gnome from another part of the cave came running up in great perplexity. “The trouble is this.” he said ex citedly. holding up a bowl of steam ing mush. “I’ve forgotten which oI the fruits or vegetables Is to get this mush except that I know it isn’t tht mushrooms. Can’t anybody help | me?” You can’t imagine how puzzied “Hooray!" Shouted the Cnomeil y MiJ, Flor, Hamd. Tam and Knarfl the ehadows—were, for try aa they would they couldn’t imagine any thing besides mushrooms that could have anything to do with mush. Even the gnomes were all at a loss, and walked about upping their heads or pulling their long green beards, which didn't help much. Things were looking very bad (for the mush was rapidly getting cold), when Knarf exclaimed brightly: “I know what it's for—it's for the mush melons"’ •‘Hooray!" shouted the gnomes, dancing around him in Joy. “That'* what it’s for—the mushmeions”' "Oh, but it isn’t mushmelon." cor rected Hamd. “It's muskmelon, Knarf has made a mistake." But the gnomes were singing and shouting too loudly to hear her. Be sides. the gnome with the mush had already hastened off to give It to the muskmelons. and it was too late to call him back. So grateful were the gnomes to Knarf for having solved their problem that they gave him a turnip which made pretty turns and brought all the shadows back home. "Still gnomes don't know much about spelling,” Hanid couldn't help saying whenever they spoke about this adventure. Copyright, 1930. Nrwippper rtttur* SotM. las. f I Words of the Wi§e.
