These Come First

We beauty experts approve the arts of make-
up. But we know that they fail unless a basis
is created, and that basis is this:
A radiant glow A cl&ar, skin
An animated look A soft, smooth skin
The skin must be cleansed to the depths. The
causes of blackheads and blemishes must be
removed. Dead skin and hardened oil must
be taken out. Enlarged pores must be reduced.
Blood must be drawn to the skin to nourish
and revive it. That's the only way.

With older women, there are little lines
to eradicate, there are wrinkles to combat. Per-
haps sagging muscles must be strengthened.

The best ways known to do all these things
are combined in Boncilla clasmic pack. The
most famous beauties, the greatest beauty ex-
perts, seem to agree on that.

BUSTER KEATON presents arms
at the ^vrong time in a comical scene

Goldwyn-Mayer's "Spite Marriage."

If you haven't had many opportunities to
meet people of larger experience than yourself,
don't be discouraged if you are a little shy with
them. That's a normal reaction and it mil
soon wear off. Let them lead the conversation
and you will be drawn into it naturally.

AND finally, cure yourself of the self-con-
scious person's worst fault, over-sensitive-
ness. True sensitiveness is an aid to social
intercourse, as it is in every phase of living.
But so-called "touchiness" has spoiled many a
promising social and business career. Don't
look for trifling sHghts and slurs. Don't put the
most uncomplimentary construction on every-
thing that is said and done to you.

Try to look your best, act your sweetest, and
use your sense of humor at least as often as you
do your powder puff.


Vou have diagnosed your own case. You
are not popular mth boys because you play
practical jokes on them and make them appear
ridiculous; you say, " I talk a lot," which prob-
ably means you talk so much that no one else
can edge in a word. You are not honest in your
friendships — you tell petty lies in order to get
out of awkward situations which you yourself
have brought about. You add, "When I meet
the right man I will cahn down." But can't
you see that when you meet the right man he

won't know you are the right girl for him, if his
first impression of you is wrong? You'll have
to calm down a little before you meet him —
not do a sudden, right-about-face afterwards.

I know it's the fashion to be a little reckless,
but you will find as you grow older that funda-
mental standards have not changed. Be as gay
and light-hearted as you please, but don't make
your friends the butt of your jokes. Don't
monopolize the spotlight. Its constant glare
•will become monotonous both to you and to


Five feet, eight inches tall and slim. And
you ask what you can do about it! Nothing,
except thank your lucky stars. That's a lovely
height. I'm glad you haven't fallen into the
error of slumping, of bending your shoulders in
a misguided attempt to hide your height.
That's the biggest mistake a tall girl can make.
Height is considered a queenly attribute, and
one should carry it like a queen.


Sly book of reducing exercises will give you
some arm movements that will slenderize your
upper arms. Yes, you are over-weight, about
ten pounds. I wouldn't advise any system of
reducing for a girl of sixteen. Just cut down on

of outdoor exercise — tennis is ideal for the

A. W.:

If you have never had long hair and have
weathered that first stage of growing out, why
not let it get long to put up becom-
ingly and decide whether you prefer it to a
bob? Then if you don't like it, you can always
have the long hair snipped off in a jiffy.


Bending and squatting e.wrcises which make
the muscles rigid in the right direction are
helpful in correcting bow legs. If possible, go
to the Y.W.C.A. or some other g>'mnasium in
your city and take a course in corrective


Since the young man has written to you
first I do not think you will make any mistake
by answering him. I should write him a casual
but friendly letter, just as if you had been
hearing from him right along. INlake the
letter short, but write in a natural manner.
It is always well to avoid taking an injured or
neglected attitude with a man, for nothing
annoys him so much — especially if he is in
the wrong! It is a promising sign that the
young man has found you "wear well" and
stand comparison favorably, since he has
grown tired of the other girl and come back
to you. Perhaps your friendship will be
stronger because of this temporary lapse.


You write me. "my nose is my ugly
feature." Then e.\periment with various ways
of arranging your hair and decide which one
makes your nose seem less prominent. Wear
hats with soft, graceful brims. Make yourself
as attractive as possible, physically and
mentally, and then go ahead and enjoy your
youth. You will find that happiness does not
depend much upon a shapely nose. Its roots
go much deeper than that.

LuELi..^ C:

You don't have to do anything you feel is
undignified or not in accordance with your
ideas and ideals in order to be popular. You
do have to cultivate an agreeable personahty
and make yourself companionable to boys. 1
think my article in Photoplay of last March
will help you. Read it.

Marg.\ret M., CoLtTMBUS:

If your mother objects to your entering a
dramatic school and you feel you have talent
for writing as well as acting, why don't you
interest yourself in a short-story or journalistic
course? You will find several such courses
advertised in the pages of this and other repu-
table magazines or there may be a good
school in your own town.


I think you are going with the wrong crowd.
You needn't drop them entirely, but stop being
so intimate with them. You ha\e the right
ideas for a girl of your age and these other girls
are making you older than you should be, and


For your age and height your weight
should be about 116 lbs. Your height is about
normal for a girl in her late teens. The May
issue of Photoplay carried an article chock-
full of splendid advice for the brown-haired
girl. It will answer all your questions about
what colors to wear and what shades to choose
in cosmetics.


If the man has left your firm and docs not
get in touch with you himself, I don't believe
there is anything you can do but forget him.
He evidently isn't as interested in you as you
are in him. If you will senc' me a self-addressed
stamped envelope I shall be glad to send you
my leaflet on the care of the skin.

r^ rank facts about


that everyone should know

THERE is no denying that
man>' of the present day
methods of reducing are extremely
injurious to the health. Starvation
diets not only make the face and
body look drawn and haggard but
they sap the strength and often
impair the health. Chemical baths
usually effect only temporary re-
ductions and are very weakening.
Medicines and pills that act on
the glands are also dangerous —
they frequently tend to throw the
whole svstem out of balance.

Health of Prominent Movie Stars
Wrecked by Unwise Reducing Methods

In a recent magazine article, a'well-known
West Coast Physician says:

"The weight reduction craze has become
a national problen-, in fact a menace.
Tuberculosis, anemia, and nervous dis-
orders have been counted among the tolls
wliich voluntary' starvation for a slender
figure and cinema stardom has exacted."

In another article, this same doctor con-
tinues as follows:

"Right now five young women of national
prominence in motion pictures are griev-
ously undernourished because thsy have
ignored the demands of their bodies for
fuel to burn. Two are said to be on the
verge of tuberculosis. One is suffering from
a severe anemia, another is a nervous
wTeck and the fifth one has so affronted
her stomach that it now returns to her
^cverj'thing slie eats." j

Lose 2 to 6 pounds a week . . .
easily . . . sensibly

BUT now it is no longer necessary to resort to
these dangerous reducing nietliods. For
through a remarkable new kind of reducing
garment, many overweight men and women are
losing from 2 to 6 pounds a week in a safe, natural,
healthful way.

Vou simply wear these garments a little while
each day — while doing your morning setting-up

exercises — pla>-ing golf — or even \Vhile working
around the house. Every minute, the gaiments
are helping to take off e-xcess fat. And soon vou
are on your way to a slim, graceful, youthful figure.

How Fat Is Banished

Fat is the fuel that keeps the body going. As we
move about, this fuel is burned up (oxidized). But
due to the foods we eat or to lack of exercise, fat is
often produced faster than it is consumed. Naturally
it accumulates on the body.

In order to get rid of this excess fat, oxidation
must be speeded up. Formerly this was accom-
plished through strenuous exercise. But this
method was slow and tiring and often overtaxed
the heart.

But while wearing the Olympic Reducing Gar-
ments, mild exercise and activity have the same
reducing eiTect as strenuous exercise — without any
of its harmful consequences.

The garment excludes air from the body and
circulation is stimulated. As a result, more
oxygenated blood is rushed to the fatty parts and
thus fat is oxidized more rapidly. The solid
residue is then carried off in the blood stream while
the moisture is given oU through the pores.
