"Best Haven."' ,871 So. Main. Adv. Dear Miss Brooks: I never fail to read your very inter-estln- g corner. There are two question that puzzle me very much and I wouJjL- - like you to help me. (I) My nalr is bobbed and. I look very well with it so. Should I let It grow out or keep It cut? . I am a girl 18 years old. (2) Is it proper to go walking with a boy you have never met If he acts perfectly de' cent? ; BOBBY, Utah. (1) I do not know as I can help you greatly. To bob or not to bob, seems to be an all absorbing question with a great many. I have no doubt th. bobbed head will be seen for some time to come, in fact some predict it will al-ways be with us and while it has en-joyed a slight revival of late, although worn quite different than It formerly was, still It is not so popular as It was some months ago. If you must wear it bobbed, to be quite it must be worn straight, clinging close to the head and the ends curled only slightly, if at all. Personally I do not advise bobbing the hair and do not think it belongs to or Is becoming to any ex-cept the very young girl,, from 14 to. IB or 18. (2) It would depend so very much upon how you came to know about the young man, my dear, that I could scarcely tell you whether It wa "proper" or not without knowing mora of the details.

If he,is "l then convinced that It Is a good idea for you to have it, you may rest as-sured she has good reasons for not wishing you to own one. Don t you think so? If you wlb a personal re-ply, Bobbie, send a stamped envelope. Dear Miss Helen: 1 call on you so often I'm afraid 1 11 wear my welcome out, but you are so nice about helping everyone that I like to come again and again and now after I thank you for the information you gave me may I ask two more ques-tions? (1) How should one eat olives, asparagus, peas, corn on cob, lettuce salad and rice? (2) AVill you give me the names of some of our nation's greatest poets and authors who are living? I thank you ever so much. Your true friend, "LUXIE BUBBLES. No, you wouldn't do that, my dear. (1) Olives are eaten with the fingers, asparagus, peas and lettuce salad with the fork. When corn Is served on the cob, and holders are not provided, hold the ear of corn In the right hand, eat It as gracefully as possible, which Is a difficult thing to do. When rice is served as a vegetable, eat with the fork. (2) Among the most notable liv-ing American poets are Henry Van Dyke, Frank L. Stanton, Edwin Mark-ha- m and Robert Loveman. James Whitcomb Riley, Ella Wheeler Wilcox, Will Carleton and Madison J. Cawein are well known poets who have died during the past ten years. (2) Among our well known authors of fiction (which I take It you wish) are Louis Joseph Vance, Randall Parrlsh, Harold MacGrath, Samuel Blythe, Irvin S. Cobb, Zane Grey, Booth Tarklngton, Mary Roberts Rlnehart, Kathleen Nor-ri- s, James Oliver Curwood and Nina Wilcox Putnam. Dear Miss Brooks: We are two girls 16 and IT years of age and wish your advise on some pus-illn- g things. (1) Is it all right for girls of our age to go to the movies In the evening In company with young men, and let them kiss you good night? We have noticed in your corner that you did not approve of this and we wish to know your objections. Our folks approve of this. (2) Is It proper for us to go with different young men Instead of a steady? We are now go-i'- g with two handsome young men t.t we admire very much. They do njt want nor like to have us go with other young men. Can you please tell us why that Is? (3) Because a girl has bobbed hair, wears rolled stock-ings, short dresses, etc., should people have the opinion of her that she is "tough?" As long as a girl's conscience Is clear that is enough, do you not agree with us? (4) Is It fair to your parents if they object, It a boy friend writes to you and they are not allowed to get or see the letters?, Wishing to see these answered in our paper, and wishing you much success in your work, we remain, as ever, DOI.L1E A DIMPLES, Meridian, Ida. All right, girls, let us hope I may help you. Certainly It is not proper for you to go any place with young men, --If you allow them tills privilege. You are evidently of too Immature years to understand how to conduct yourselves properly. My objections are well sus-tained and approved of, I am sure, by every thinking person, and the reasons are obvious If you will but look about you and study the condltons which exist in your own and every neighbor-hood condltons which are caused largely by Indifferent and careless con-sideration of the proper customs and conventions established by experienced persons, older and wiser than you Ar I, who, from study and observation, have seen the wisdom and necessity of the establishment of such customs. Why should one wish to make one's self a common thing for coarse and un-refined amusement for every boy one happens to be with? (2) I most surely do not approve of allowing one boy to mon-opolize any girl's time and attention. She should be allowed to have as many friends and admirers as she chooses. In what other way will she ever be able to judge and choose a permanent one? (3) No, she should not be condemned for effecting these styles, but you must admit that many of them are very careless and Indifferent In regard to their behavior, which seems to be a part of the make-u- p. There are ex-ceptions, to be sure, as in all other things. Vi'a can sometimes soothe our "conscience" Into acting according to our bidding. (4) It is neither fair to parents to refuse to allow them to see letters, nor Is it fair to the children for parents to Insist upon seeing them. P.ach should have confidence in the other, to have harmony. Dear Miss Brooks: I was very much pleased for the an-swers you gave me last time. Would it be too much bother to answer a few more? My sister has also been Inter-ested in your corner. (1) Is It proper or Inproper to ask a boy friend Into the house when he has come to make a date, if this is about the second time ha has come? (2) Is It proper for a girl of thirteen years of age to go bare-foote- d in the summer? BRIGHT EYES AND SWEET LIPS, Amerlcus, Kansas. Glad to welcome you again. Bright Eyes. You come quite a distance to visit with us don't you? (1) It is al-ways proper to Invite anyone into your house when thelrcail is of a social na-ture. (2) No, It is hardly proper for a girl of thirteen to go bare-foo- t, dear. Dear Miss Brooks: I certainly enjoy reading your cor-ner every Saturday when our town pa-per arrives. I would like to ask a few questions. (1) Could you please tell me where I can find some good humorous and religious or moral readings? Thanking you in advance and hoping to see my question answered In the next paper I remain your friend, BLONDIE of Idaho. It is very gratifying to know you enjoy my corner, and I am very glad that you are now making practical use of It. I believe that the "Peerless Re-citer" will All your need.

I will now hold these letters and If you wish the an-swers, please send a name by which I can reach you. Dr Miss Brooks: I also, like a great many others, have been Interested In your work and cor-ner. I think it wonderful the way you answer the questions. This Is my first time to enter. 1 arn fifteen and live In a country of sage brush. I love to ride horses, go everywhere on them and the faster they go the better. I thank the girl for the recipe for a good com-plexion. I believe as she does. I never owned a box of powder, not because I couldn't have it, but I hate it and the looks of It. Isn't it as bad to pow- der the way they do, as for a man to smoke? I think we oimht to be proud of the complexions r.od gave us and not cover them up I hope I will never be tempted to use It. For if anybody needs It I do. (1) What else are the best studies for a girl to study In High School when she lust wants to be a plain women, as they call them, besides domestic art and science? (H) What's the meaning of Elma and Jessie? A HAPPY U1RL. Lasal, Utah. Thanks. Happy Girl, I am glad you like us and enjoy the corner. I am sure our little Wyoming friend will be glad to know she has another ally, per-haps it Isn't quite so bad as smoking dear, as it does not affect our physical or moral well being to the extent that tobacco sometimes does. (i Every "plain" modern woman should have at advanced study In English, mathemat-lea- . home economics, physical education and Industrial art as is possible for hei to obtain, even though sha la planning on being only a "plain" homemaker (2) The name Elma has no special meaning. Jessie is a Scotch form ol Janet, meaning "grace of the Lord." In regard to speaking plalnlybut normal child will have obtained g00(! command of the mother tongue at fron three to five years. Oftentimes whlli the little one is learning to walk Mi whole attention Is given to this and I he had begun to talk before this, hi i will make no furthnr progress' it speech until Tie has mastered this oh stacle. As a rule a child will learn ti both talk and walk more quickly whei .there are other children in the family (2) Because the syrlnga has been cho . sen as the state flower of Idaho, It I perhaps considered the prettiest by th i greater number of people. Tastes var so greatly in regard to color and forni that It would be difficult for one per son to say which was the prettiest. Dear Miss Brooks: I surely cannot express my thoughts of how glad I was to once more see your corner In our paper. I talked to our editor and he promised me It would be in our paper this week. Miss Brooks. I have quit dances altogether, and I have found that it a much better meth-od to follow as I am much brighter in my school atudies. It was so foolish for me to jnlnk of dances at my age. anyway, which was 11 the 13th of Sep-tember. 1 would like to have your ad-vice on one more thing. I want a bi-cycle, which I have money to buy, but my mother objects to me having one. I would re glad to boycott sweet thlngi. to earn this, but mother, I'm afraid, will not let me. What should I do? Flense 1ft me know whether I should send a s'amped envelope for a personal reply. 1 m ss ever your sincere friend, BOBBIE. Ida. Well, Bobble, I am so delighted that nu have been convinced of the folly of attending dances while so young. Your school work is by far the most Im-portant thing to be considered for some time yet, and dearie, mother knows better than anyone else what her little daughter should have, as she Is fam-iliar with every condition which sur-rounds you and has your interest at heart more than anyone else In the world could possibly have, so I would advise you to Just bring every argument you have in favor of owning the bicycle VELMA. lleber City, Utah. I do not have the songs you request. Should I find them later will send them to you In the envelope you enclosed. Pear Miss Brooks: This Is my first letter to the corner, and I am an interested reader of th paper. May I ask some questions? (1) How old should a baby be before it talks? (2) Which Is the prettiest flower that grows In Idaho? SLEEPING BEAUTY, Lemhi, Ida. You are very welcome and let ui hope It will not be your last visit.
