Hello, Lucille, how are you? I
was talking about you yesterday,
saying that you will have a birth
day this month. How have you
been anyway? I heard about the
wonderful time you had in Idlewild
this summer. Yes, Walter Aber
nathy told me that there were
more people there this year than
he had ever seen before.
Yes, it seems that everybody is
talking about the Henderson wed
ding. They all say that it was one
grand affair, and that Lovelyn
Evans had charge of it. I was told
that nearly everyone who came
downstairs at the Chicken Shack
after the wedding supper, helped
himself to something from the cash
I know that Lovelyn would have
put a stop to that had she seen it.
One person remarked that he knew
Ernie had to start from scratch the
next morning, for there could not
have been anything left in the
cash register. But they say that
the wedding was lovely, and that he
got a very fine girl.
* ■* * *
Yes. I was by her house Tues
day. \Ye played bridge and then
went over to the Pioneer Barbecue
Pit on 51st street for something to
eat. Talk about barbecue! I never
have eaten such delicious lamb as
they have there. The place is so
lovc'y, too. The walls are hand
painted scenery, and everything is
so spotlessly clean. Mrs. Ella
Morphis is the owner and she and
the people connected with it are
so affable.
* * * *
Are you going to the Tuskegee
Wilberforce game Saturday? I
would not miss it for the world!
I hope that it is a pretty day. I
can’t wear a green dress this year
as I had my dress dyed black. No,
I took it to the William Cherry
Cleaning Company at 43rd street
and Prairie avenue and it looks
like new. They certainly do fine
work there.
* * * *
Talking about a cleaning place,
I must tell you about a new pro
duct that is on the market. The
Pynol Flakes. It is one of the finest
preparations for silks, etc., which
I have ever used. Then the sham
poo is par excellent. I want you to
try some. They have several ar
ticles which are worth while. Your
face fee's so f r e s h after using
Pynol soap. I am just simply car
ried away with it.
* * * *
Did you hear about Enid Lee
passing away? Yes. she died in
New York, and her funeral was
held Thursday. I have not heard
whether Etta Moten went to the
services or not. You know she trav
eled to South America as Etta’s
' — ■■■ I
accompanist on her trip there. She
was certainly a brilliant pianist.
I understand that she was ill only
a brief period, too.
* * * *
That is life, you are here today,
and gone tomorrow. I saw Dr.
Lawson driving his car the other
day. I was so glad to see him out
as Lulu told me that he had been
awfully ill. I think he looks fine,
and he told me he goes for a drive
every day.
* * * *
I was down there the other night.
The conversation came up about
them, then. T heard several of the
girls say that they were really sep
arated. It seems that she is the
one who refuses to come home.
She had better be careful, for as
good looking as he is, you know
someone will soon begin to comfort
him. He does net seem to be wor
^ * * *
I will have to tell you about it
when I see you, as this is “deep
stuff,” and my line is a party line,
and it is too dangerous to talk over
the phone. I'll give you a ring what
time to come by for me to go to
the game. You will be rooting for
Tuskegee, and I will be rooting for
Wilberforce, but that will be al
right between friends. So long, ’til

Good afternoon, friends. We arc
going into further details about
conditions which cause dry, split,
lustreless hair.
Many people of both ses.es think
because they see the final white
suds, the hair is clean, and when
rinsed in three waters the shampoo
Is complete.
Remember we spoke of our hair
growing In shingles and there is
also grease, acid, salt, etc., that
remain under these shingles and
unless they are carefully removed
will dry, and when coming in con
tact with hot combs, will further
dry the hair and cook it, causing
the hair to burn, mat together, and
begin to break off.
Sometimes one will shampoo her
own hair improperly and ask the
beautician for a press and wrave.
The hair is not c’ean and eventu
ally is burned and breaks off. If
she is informed of this, and is not
told in detail how to shampoo
properly, rarely will she be con
vinced that it was her fault and
not the beautician’s.
I always advise betting one who
