Here's How
To Achieve
how over 30 and happily married,
but when I was younger I used to
tNQtic I'd never be popular. I had
gone with a girl chum who matured
earlier than I and became interested
In boys much sooner. She was leaa
shy and could talk ctuertaiatn*ly
Later I went away lo teach, got into
a new crowd who had never known
me when I was shy. and soon learn
ed how to attract boys.
“Here are some suggestions I
would give lonely girls: Get into
some organization, club, church, lit
tle theatre, philanthropic group,
that will throw you with young peo
ple in an Informal way. Working
with people is better than only
meeting them socially. Be friendly,
helpful, dependable. Make friends
of girls who are the type boys like,
ana they may either Introduce their
friends and get you a date—often
a start is all that is neet>d—or you
may leam from observation or dis
cussion what you lack.
“When with these boys be friendly
laugh easily. There it nothing more
more complimentary than laughing
at a person's jokes and appreciating
what he says. Get the boy to talk
ing if possible, about his interests,
and that’s where working tn groups,
etc., will help. If you have an In
terest in common outside of your
social life it will draw you together.
“The first thing in being popular,
if you are really attractive personal
ly, is to be well known. Boys are
shy. too, and if a girl is a stranger
and seems ill at ease, they are apt
to leave her alone. If you can work
with them and serve on committees
together, the ice will be broken.
“As a final word, don't feel that
you are the type not to be popular.
It doesn’t follow, necessarily. If you
arc naturally serious, forget it some
times. be smiling, ready to 'kid,' talk
nonsense and depend on the boy s
judgment or advice Even if you are
capable, let the boys build fires and
cook steaks. Be there smllng to ap
preciate their skill, however.
“I hope this may be helpful There
is no more awful feeling than that
you aren't liked. Remember that
because if that seems true now, it
needn't remain so.
Now there is a fine, sensible, help
ful letter which should be a real in
spiration to all, old and young, who
feel that folk dont like them. T
won t add a word to It. And thank
you, Happily Married

LONESOME C.: I do not know
how you can attract the man wou
think you love, my dear. If you
never see him except at funerals
where he 1* busy, you haven’t much
chance to attract him.
I think if he really was Interested
he would try to get to know you bet
ter. anyhow Maybe he will.
Now as you do not seem to be
having much success In attracting
men. why not turn your thoughts to
something that will bring you satis
faction and contentment? There si- j
ways is plenty of work to do in the
world Why not loin a church. 1f
you are not already a member of
«t? Work with the members of
iW Try to visit people who are shut
in. Read to them, and try to bring
them cheer. You see if folk cannot
have one thing that they want, they
can fill their lives with other inter
ests and be reaaonablv happy. The
queer part of life ts. that when they
do that, very often the thtpg that
they want most comes to them.

When you buy vour skirt this
year—that you will buy a suit goes
without saving, for It's a suit year
be sure to order an extra skirt of
contrasting fabric. For instance, a
separate black skirt to go with a
checked Jacket, or the other way
around. Stripes and cross bars are
the most important note in skirts
this spring.
In the matter of accessories, a
suit year calls for caution and taate.
Don’t wear high heels with tailored
suits. That goes ditto for nose veils,
fussy bags and gloves and very lock
necked lacy blouses. Those things all
have their place—when you put
on your, silk afternoon suit

Most Children \
Are Naturally
Perhaps few of us can glance at a
person and tell him what he had for
breakfast—unless there is egg on
his cravat. We cannot tell by his
shoe strings, as did Sherlock Holmes,
that our visitor has gotten out of |
the wrong side of bed. left by the
back door and missed his bus.
But every mother* son of us
misses about nine-tenths of what
goes on because we are just too
dumb to use our eyes.
Observation is lacking in most
people to an unbelievaable degree
and yet It is almost without par
allel as an asset to success
Some schools have taken it up
as part of mental training and I
know of nothing more worth while
Schools teach memorv. or rather
emphasize those studies that train
it. and they keep on inventing mejn
tal gymnastics to develop reason.
But for the major part they stop
there. One would think that mem
ory and reason were the only facul
ties these children were going to
need in a highly competitive world.
Now it so happens that children
are more observant than their pa
rents. Ask almost any child what
Claudette Colbert wore in such and
such a part of a certain show You
will get a fairly accurate description,
whereas you will have to puzzle
your brains to remember what the
plot of the show was about Ask a
boy what the number of the street
car was that he came home on and
there is an almost even chance he
will have it. You or I would not.
quite probably, be able to identify |
the motorman.
Yes. children are naturally ob
servant. They have better memo
ries. too. as we know. Actually they
have far greater potential possibili
ties than grown ups. But while
their memories do not atrophy early,
their powers of observation do.
Why? Because that which is not
constantly exercised and kept on
tip-toe neither advances nor stands
still It retrarta.
This habit of mentally registering
things can be taught at home as

Good Mirror
Is Important
Beauty Aid
’ America's Moat Famous Beaut>’
Whether you’re up on your myth
ology or not, moat of you probably
know the story of Narciaaua. th«
beautiful youth, who In the day?
before mirrors were Invented, saw
his reflection in a woodland pool and
fell in love with It. And In the end,
he pined to death with love of his
reflection Even In pastoral times
the only way a girl could catch a
glimpse of hcraalf was by seeking
her reflection in a pool or rivulet. It
wasn't until the Roman era that
mirrors came into uae and then they
were only made of polished metal
Today, of course, mirrors are al
most perfect. And while many wom
en don t realise it. mirrors are im
portant beauty accessories, as they
enable a woman to see herself exact
ly as others see her. A triple mir
ror is the best sort of mirror to
have at one s makeup table, a* It
permits a woman to view her face
from all angles. For when a gal has
finished applying her makeup, she
should not only obtain a clear view
of the front of her face, but should
also examine each side carefully
This is essential so that she may see
whether or not her rouge, powder,
lipstick and eye cosmetics are blend
ed evenly and harmoniously on each
side of her face. If her makeup Is
not properly balanced, if may give a
somewhat disproportionate appear
ance to her face.
A full-length mirror also is an
important beauty accessory. Some
girls look as though they’ve never
seen themselves other than In sec
tions The short, plump gal. for In
stance. who persists in wearing large
hats, belted frocks, cape dresses and
the like. Or the tall thin girl who
goes for gowns with long, vertical,
flowing lines. Such girls without a
full-length mirror, cannot see that
■lie respective styles they are wear
ing only accent the short squatness
or tall lankiness of their figures.
Without a full-length mirror, no
girl can study herself, can learn to
gown herself correctly so that the
best lines of her figure are fully
brought out. And without a triple
mirror no femme can really get a
decent slant at her makeup. So take
my advice and always study yourself
carefully from every angle before you
consider your toilet complete. Be
fair to yourself in this respect, and
you'll always appear fair to others.

swer to the call of spring It's easy
to make and that gives me more tune
to play with my garden which is just
in the stage where I wish I had no
thing to do except dig It's also good
for jaded appetites which is what all
my family seem to have these spring
feverish days.
Last year I made a culinary hit
in the home circle by scooping out
the pineapple and serving salad In
the shell# This year I’m going to
fill the shell with the salad dress
ing It ought to make a stunning
table picture—the russet pineapple
shell filled with gleaming dressing
surrounded by luscious fruit on a
l bed of feathery endive.
For the salad I use slices of
pineapple, canned pears and fresh
strawberries, one fine large berry
for each person.
Oranges and bananas with straw
berry garnish make a good salad,
And here s the best salad dressing

My home-made bread twists made
with ice-box dough are another re
cent triumph and they go well with
the salad.
Bread Twists
One cup rlced potatoes. 1 com
pressed yeast cake. Vi cup water
in which potatoes were cooked. 2 cups
milk. 4 tablespoons butter. 4 table
spoons lard. 1-3 cup sugar. 2 tea
spoons salt. 2 eggs. 714 cupa flour.
Scald milk and add butter and
lard. Cool to lukewarm tempera
ture. Cool V4 cup water In which
potatoes were cooked to lukewarm
temperature and add crumbled yeast
cake. When cake is dissolved add to
milk with potatoes, sugar, salt and
eggs well beaten. Add 3 cupa flour.
Beat hard, cover and let stand in
a warm place for one hour. Add re
maining flour and knead on a flour
ed board for ten minutes. Cut off
about one-fourth of the dough to
make the bread sticks Put remain
ing dough in a mixing bowl, brush l
with melted butter, cover closely and I
store tn ice-box for future use.
To make bread twists put dough
reserved for this purpose in a bowl,
r^ver with a fresh dish towel and
let stand in a warm place for 3
hours. Roll the dough 4 of an inch
thick. Cut into strips 4 inch wids
and 3 inches long. Roll each stick
on the board with the palm of ths
hand until smooth. Twin two
rolls together and place on a {greased
baking sheet at least an inch apart
sr that the twists wont touch in
rising. Cover and let stand until
'**7 light. It will take at least an
hour for the twists to rise. Bake in
a hot oven < 400 degrees F t for fif
teen minutes.
Instead of twisting two rolls to
gether each roll may be baked sep
arately to make bread sticks.
