A powerful ally lius come to the

N.i less a person than Dr. Koyal S.

his medical hooks to prove that
American girls will be a whole lot
healthier if they defy the Prench

skills and low heeled shoes.
"The short skirt is immeasurably
more hygienic than the long one that
sweeps on the ground picking up
dirt and disease germs," Dr. Cope

freedom to get around as a woman
If the idea of the long narrow
skirt is to hobble the flapper so that
she can't flit around quiet and free

effective device be adopted,

BLUER ELD COLLEGE
OPENS SEPTEMBER 20
Twri years ago then existed an
indefinite pui pose of founding a col?
lege at Blucficld for boys. Then
there wetc in. definite plan- nor had
n colic rente policy been conceived
Since that time building plans, in?
volving an outlay of mote than a
million dollars, have been scientifi?
cally laid out, architects and con?
tracts have 1.n secured, building
activities have been in operation,
equipment all ordered and now very
hugely installed all of these pre?
parations have gone forward and on
Sept,ml,ei Juth Hindi, Id College
will open lot the first lime its don s
to students under most gratifying
A faculty has been secured and a
retinue of helper- employed and
readiness to open as .scheduled will
prevail in ample time.
It is a matter of no small moment
that in one m :u foul hundred thou?
sand dollars have been expended by
religious denominations in founding
a school. Such presages' determina?
tion lo achieve the entire plan, sac
nine on the pait of the friends of
Christian education, and an auspi?
cious future for this college. This
school is significant In all of South?
west Virginia, as well as to South?
ern W. st Virginia.
Perhaps no school of the charac?
ter of Itlucficjd College has today so
large and populous a field heeding
such an institution. The college will
maintain two departments a tilting
school, offering foil I years of high
school work, and a college depart?
ment, ottering two full years of stan?
dard college woik. The object of
the titling school is to meet the needs
of those mountain localities without
accredited high schools. This des
pal Illicit! w ill be one of unique ser?
vice since there are too many com?
munities without the benefit of
thorough going high schools. Since
the tilting school work will be offered
at the bands of college teachers, and
very largely with college equipment,
this department will become very
popular with those students who de?
sire to prepare themselves for en?
trance into higher institutions of
learning. The college department,
Offering two years of work, will lie
of special advantage to those stu?
dents, who not being able to spend
four full years in college, desire to
prepare themselves fur certain pro
them. You might as well put a wo?

with armor plate as to squeeze her
into the old time steel stays. They
make her muscles weak and MUM se?
rious dislocations. A light elastic
girdle is not objectionable.
? "As for shoes, women ought to
continue to wear the low heeled
kinds. Extremely high heels throw
the foot muscles out of position.
"Iliddied hair'.' Well, my profes?
sional knowledge tells me that bob?
bed hair is more sanitary, better for
the hair and better for the scalp.
Hut I'm a man and like all men I
love the dignity that long hair gives
to a woman. Most of men like bob?
bed hair on everyone but their wives,
ami I guess I'm that way, too."
Hut Dr. Copeland didn't quite like
the idea of men telling women what
"You know there are a lot of men
who go around wearing flannel un?

We Eliminate Waste
The cost of gas is a big element in the
maintenance of your car. Gas expense can
be materially reduced by a proper adjustment
of nil working parts of your engine and car.
A car improperly adjusted does not work
to advantage?it "pulls" against the engine.
And every minute of such a pull means the
loss of power and a waste of gas.
Loose piston rings, carbon in your en?
gine, clogging of your oil tubes, hardenii
of grease in the cups, all of these are power
destroyers and gas eaters.
We make a specinlty of reducing the cost
of operating your car.
