This Precedes All Other Laws
of Etiquette, Writer Says.
"To be well-bred is to be thought-
ful. This rule precedes all other
rules of etiquette," states Mary As-
tor Bristed in an article entitled,
"It's. A Comforting Rule," appear-
ing recently in McCall's magazine.
Not all the education and travel
and money in the world can make
a person sought after if she is
thoughtless and rude. The author
cites an instance of a rainy day
at a country house, where one of
the guests spoiled everything for
her hostess and five fellow guests
because bridge bored her, she hated
pool, she didn't feel like dancing
and conversation made her gloom-.
ily silent or discouragingly contra-
dictive. She wouldn't even go to
her room and rest - as someone
tactfully suggested.

Alice Booth Tells of Her Genius
for Interpretation, Her
Personality, Charm.
Alice Booth in her series of ar-
ticles in' Good Housekeeping on
America's twelve greatest women
says of Minne Maddern Fiske that
"her finest, strongest, and most
delightful role is the one she plays
every day-Herself.
"Rarely is it given to one woman-
to stamp upon the memory of the
public such a series of celebrated
portraits as Tess, Hedda Gabler,
Lona Hessel, Salvation Nell, dear
Miss Nelly of New Orleans, and the
glorious Becky Sharpe. But then
rarely are combined in one per-
sonality charm, intellect, charac-

nothing less than perfection, and-

They Are Not as Sophisticated
as They Appear, Declares
Marguerite Marshall.
"College girls detest sentimental-
ity. They do not get enough sleep.
They are sophisticated in appear-
ance and in actuality-although
not as sophisticated deep down as
they seem to be on the surface.
They like men and. are liked by
men," according to Marguerite
Mooers Marshall, who writes for
McCall's magazine.
She observes that the college
girl of today is cramming her life
full of activities in an effort to util-
ize those four precious years and
consequently thinks of her health
only at odd moments. Medical ex-

men reveal the interesting fact,
however, that the modern girls are
healthier than those of a preced-
ing geneatrion. Every effort is
