Take two of relief now are not call the atabiet Force who see er than any $4]ogte Boy Deserves Credit for Clinging to Aim Despite Objections. DEAR MISS DENE: I am twenty- one years old and have planned to marry a boy of twenty-two who has just started working. His father objects to me and has refused to let the boy see me any more. My fiance has consented to his father's wishes. He came to me, told me the truth and said that until he could support me without his fa- ther's help, he would not see me any more. So long as he is relying on his father, he will not go back on his word not to see me. I don't know what to think or what to do.- Nancy Y. In the same mail comes a letter from the sister of Nancy who says she knows her little sister is seeking my advice--and wishes to tell me the true facts of the case. "I know," writes the sister, "that this boy doesn't care for N. as he should or he would have stuck to her through thick and thin. She is making a fool of herself and break- ing her heart over a worthless man. I only want to help her but I want you to tell her that this boy isn't the man for her and that he has shown clearly that he doesn't love her.--Sarah." ANSWER-Sorry, Sarah, but I can't condemn the boy out of hand. He must have a fair trial before be- ing dismissed as an utter cad and a lukewarm lover. And Nancy must be given an honest answer, not an outburst of angry oratory at the expense of men in general and Nan- cy's true love in particular. Don't forget the boy is only twen- W-two--and not yet able to make his own living apparently. That makes it necessary for him to live with father and mother for a while. True, if he were constructed of heroic ma- terial he'd go out into the cruel cold world to starve in the cause of true love--but heroes aren't pop- ular in these modern times. And with so much unemployment and depression in the world just now, I for one could not praise a boy who added to the sum total of the world's human misery by voluntarily join- ing the bread line. This lad has had to compromise with his fate. He must live with his father who has exacted from him e promise never to see his fair lady again. Having promised the hero shows e commendably honor- able spirit in refusing to break his word on the sly. There is certainly something to be said for him in holding strongly to his purpose. No one can blame Nancy for feel. ing hurt and miserable over the sit- uatim. No one can blame her for seeking to mend her broken heart as best she may. But she need not feel that her erstwhile fiance is ei- ther a cad or a coward. EAR DORIS DENE: 1 am a high school girl and very un- popular. Even the girls don't seem to like me. I am never invited to anything and as it is very hard for me to make new friends, my chance never improves. I am usually at home alone. Can you give me any help?--T. A. S. ANSWER--Again and again I beg of the girls who come to me with a problem like this, to give me some- thing constructive in the way of a analysis. There are dozens of reasons for )opularity. It is easy to say that in general a girl will get over her self-consciousness by taking up in- terests which distract her mind from thoughts of herself but so often this rule doesn't work because the victim of unpopularity is a special case and needs special instructions. There are many girls who are un- popular simply and solely because of their lack of vitality. They may seem colorless and uninteresting, dull and stupid because of ill-health ----or some lack of energy which could be remedied if they found out the truth about theaselves. There are girls whose inability to [riand resu mlely on  t=ct that they hat, s torbidding manners tt are aloe[ and ]rigid. These girls will tell you confidently that they have 'iendliest [eelings in the world to. ward everyone and want $o be liked-- yet i[ they write a long intimate "ac. count el themselves i$ will very o[ten l be revealed that they are super critical and extremely sure of their own spin. ions. They are humble about their lack o[ popularity yet amazingly afro. gant in connection with other matters, i And ere are always girls who simply need to attend to their ap- pearance in order to attract some of the attention they crave so. Un- tidiness and slovenliness have more effect on the high school audience, than the average girl in her teens suspects. The very young genera- tlon is critical of the dowdy, down- at-the-heel girl whose hair is al- ways a mesa and whose general ap- pearance is frumpy. Even a lim- ited income can be made to pro- duce at least one trim costume for school use. But as I say, one can't lay down bard and fast rulels. One must hear about the patient's symptoms first. Will the girls who write me on this absorbing topic, give me some ink. ling as to what manner of human beings they are. The more they write, the more they reveal in some way or other what their drawbacks and their virtues may be. I shall be glad to answer all questions on this subject if I am given some- thing to go on. * * Historic ME __  Offering Information [ H o a x e s , LNOTHER t o. / "k r .... e ---------* " * DUST * 1.

Recently she went to Wash- ington to receive the cross of Knighthood of the Order of St. Ola, conferred by the Norwegian government through their minister to Washington. A few days later her ice ballet the same one you will see in ] .] film "Happy Landing," played a benefit at Madison Square Garden in New York City sponsored by an impressive array of Carnegies, As- tots, and RockefeUers. Beneficiary of the occasion was the Children's Village which lends a helping hand to New York's prob- Sonja Henie lem children, and thanks to Sonja a staggering number of thousands of dollars was raised. Sonja expresses her gratitude for Western Newspaper Union. Anti-Brassiere Campaign HEN the late Halbert L. Hoard, editor of the Jefferson County Union, approached some of his friends in Fort Atkinson, Wis., with a request that they sign a pe- tition which he had prepared, they didn't hesitate. They knew his pa- per advocated some very good things and they were willing to help "Bert" along. What they had signed was this: The undersigned note with alarm the increase in divorces since the nineteenth amendment, the woman suffrage law. We note many more women wearing breeches th4n before. We can stand that, but this new fad  slab-sided dresses, flat in front--showing women in the fashion pictures as flat-chested as man, we regard with jealous eyes as an infringement . . . We ask that the congress of the United States do its utmost to break down thee brassieres as an evil that menaces the future well being of society. They very soon realized that they had been a little hasty. Their wom- enfoik told them they "ought to be ashamed" and that they "should mLud their own business." But a welfare league in a city nearby took the matter seriously and passed a resolution supporting the campaign. Then an official of the state board of health issued a statement say- ing that brassieres caused rickets in babies. Whereupon Mr. Hoard wrote an editorial in which he said: There are cow.milk-fed babies right in this city that are gasping for breath, the doctor at his wit's end to nourish them properly. They could live on monkey's milk, because monkeys are related, but there are no monkeys around except with the deadly brassieres and few of those are giving milk. Before the uproar over this mat- ter died down, Halbert Hoard was known from coast to coast as the valiant crusader against the "dead- ly brassiere"--all because of a hoax which some of his obliging friends helped perpetrate. 2.

Plant seeds of the following in- doors about six weeks before the plants are to be set out: Delphin- ium, pink, gaillardia, lobelia, my- osotis, pansy, Iceland poppy, sal- via, stock and verbena. A week or two later the follow- ing can be sown indoors: Agera- tum, snapdragon, aster, dahlia, nicotiana, petunia, phlox drum- mondi, salpiglossis, scabiosa and vines rosea. Seed may be procured at your corner store sufficiently early to permit indoor planting. With a number of popular flow- ers, however, there is no advan- tage to be gained by early start- ing indoors, according to Gilbert Bentley, flower expert of the Ferry Seed Institute. In this class are sweet alyssum, calendula, calliopsis, candytuft, four o'clock, marigold and nastur- tium.

Gracie Allen, long radio's queen of nonsense, is at last to get the rec- ognition she deserves from Para- mount pictures.

When Jack Benny first started talking about that rattletrap old car on his radio program, it was just the figment of a script writer's imagination. By the time radio au- diences developed a hilarious at- tachrent for his wheezy old motor, Jack began to wish that he really had one, so he and Mary Living- stone made the rounds of used-car lots and found just the car of their dreams. It is a 1921 model and cost thirty-five dollars. That long-promised reurn of Gloria Swanson to the screen is postponed indefinitely again. Colum- bia pictures, which had planned to have her play the lead in "Holi- day," have decided instead to give the leading role to Katherine Hep- burn. Joan Bennett and Cary Grant will be featured with her, so it prom- ises to be one of those knockout pictures that Columbia turns out with unfailing regularity whenever they borrow ranking stars from other studios. Radio stars are much more thrifty than the early motion-picture stars. Most of them invest their earnings in businesses that are not so dependent on youth and enter- tatnment whims of the public. Jack Fulton, tenor of "Poetic Melodies," has bought a half-interest in a Fifth avenue haberdashery. Ethel Owen of Edgar Guest's "It Can Be Done" ! program, owns a dog and cat hos- pital in Milwaukee and is presi- dent of a dog biscuit company. Tru- man Bradley, commentator on the Sunday evening hour, is president of a cosmetic firm. _4t-. Three young men whose youthful ambitions were strictly serious have become radio's great comic trio.

"Rare Old" Newspapers F, WHILE going through an old trunk in the attic, you find a copy of the Ulster County Gazette, published in Kingston, N. Y., in 1800 and containing an account of the death of George Washington, don't get excited and hurry away to tell the local newspaper publish- er about your "discovery." The chances are about 999,999 out of 1.000,000 that it's a "facsimile copy" of the Gazette of that date and thousands of them have been reprinted and distributed as souve- nirs. It was first done back in 1826 in celebration of the fiftieth anniver- saw of the Declaration of Independ- ence but most of them were pro- duced for the Philadelphia centen- nial in 1876. Naturally, in the course of time the paper becomes aged and yellow and brittle. So in that respect it's "old." But it's neither rare nor valuable, unless you can find some- one who is buying "fake antiques." Even then he won't give you much for it.
