waltz step and gradually -allowing the
Boston glide to become more pronounced.
"The man leads tho direction, , In- a
very simple manner, with his eyes'. Thsn
the man catches the -.girl, holding her
right hand from behind with hia loft,
spins her around and then catching her
back to him, they dip together In the
regular Boston dip. After this, the-regu-lar

than men. We are less Inclined to try

of our sex every Individual of us must
try to overcome It Instead of doing our
work as we did It yesterday we must en
