NO MOHR BINGO IN DEE CEE
Washington, Nov. (ANP)—Dr.
Frank W. Ballou, superintendent of
schools, has come out against tht
game of bingo, or any other game
that is inconsistent with police re
gulations. Her-1 of ore the schools
have ben op« n to organizations
providing bingo as entertainment
if such organizations obtained a
ruling that their particular game
was legal. Dr. Ballou, in writing
to Mrs. Elizabeth Peoples on the
subject, expressed the opinion that
school officials should not put
themselves in a position of un
certainty in games of chance.
The Larieuse Isanty foundation »M established by 7
the Codefray Manufacturing Company to atudy methodi
of preserving women’i natural beauty, and to make
the multi of thia research available tu the public.
This Is the season of the year
when we are all studying fashion
notes and planning that momentous
step, the selection of our winter
wardrobe. But, unfortunately, there
are too many of us who will rush
out and buy the latest whim of
fashion without tuking thought as
to whether that particular style will

In style, of course, but it is wise
to consider beauty ns well. You
can be dressed In the height of
vogue and still look like a ridicu
lous caricature of What the well
dressed woman Is wearing. Men
have a habit, often times justifiable,
of making fun of the blind way we
follow the dictates of fashion.
Short Girls Get the Breaks
Everything seems to be on the
side of the short girl this season.
Shoes with platform soles ure de
signed especially to give her added
height. The newest hats have
peaks and tall feathers to give her
several more Inches towards the
sky. And then, too, there’s the plied
up hulr-dress to give her the illusion
of height. The short girl should
have no difficulty keeping up with
the style und still looking her love
liest. There are only a few pit
falls which she need vuteh.
First of all, she must beware of
horizontal lines which will give her
a wide, dumpy appearance. Vertical
line*, however, will make her look
longer and slimmer. Two-piece
dri-cses, too, are a mistake since
they have a tendency to cut her lr
two, so to speak, and destroy thal
sweeping all-in-one line which wll
add several illusory inches.
Reverse Rules for Tall Girls
The tall girl, on the contrary
must reverse the rules. The nev
platform soles and extremely liigl
heels are not for her. She must
save the swept up hair-dress for
evening and then only If she Is
fortunate enough to have a very tall
man In tow. Even then It Is often
unsatisfactory since you can never
tell when you will find yourself danc

scout around, however; you can find
some that are fashionable and still
