ing in the morning. The only thing
particularly distressing in the mak-
up is the variety which comes off on
slight provocation or the male es-
cort, depending on whether the prov-
ocation or the escort is nearer at
the time.
Seriously, lipstick that comes off
on clothes can be very annoying at
times. Short women dancing with tall
men should take especial precautions
not to nuzzzle up a a nice starched
shirt front or a soft and fluffy tie.
And now we come to the eyebrows,
which have more to do with the ex-
pression than any other thing. If you
must make a thin, tiny line out of
them, for goodness' sake don't arch
them so high that you have a per-
petual expression of surprise. One of
the greatest American tragedies is
the confusion which results when one
of these surprised-looking females
sinks down into the depths of a booth
in one of the local tea-establishments
and sighs something about being

And now a message to all the
ladies: An assignment such as this is
always a severe trial to a Mere Man.
So do not leap five (5) feet (ft.) into
the air if you are at all touched by
this little message. And don't take
down the old family blunderbuss and
go gunning for the writer. It won't be
the slightest use; he'llbe out of town.
