HENRY GOLDBERGER Modern Etiquette By WANDA GINGRICH Q. What rules govern, behavior on the street A. It seems odd that so many people who make a definite effort to be charming in their homes and to their friends and acquaintances, acquaintances, forget that public manners are entirely as important aj those they may reserve for private occasions. One has only to pass down the avenue to see people crowding past others to get into stores, brushing fellow pedestrians aside, and giving a fair imitation of a football player breaking through the line, jn their attempt to reach some important (to them) destina-ion, destina-ion, destina-ion, at which they will probably wait for minutes. It is decidedly not good taste to draw the attention of lie passers-by passers-by passers-by with loud laughter or conversation. It is really amas-Ing amas-Ing amas-Ing the amount of very private affairs one hears continually broadcast broadcast to the amusement or disgust of others. Rudeness or accident is treated as an every day affair, and the nicety of conventionalities, conventionalities, observed by a mere, "I'm sorry," sorry," is rarely seen. Any display of affection in public public is in decidedly poor taste. According According to Vogue, "a young man who holds a girl's arm too closely, who conducts too devoted and clearly sentimental conversation in a public spot, or puts his arm affectionately across the back of a theatre seat, is showing his feelings feelings not only to the girl, but to the whole world. Affection too clearly displayed in public Is as amusing to the onlookers as a heated quarrel would be and Just as bad manners." Altoona Woman Marks 71st Anniversary Mrs. Dora E. Skelly, widow of John A. Skelly and residing at 202 Walnut acenue, observed her 71st birthday yesterday. Mrs. Skelly is in excellent health and very active. Mrs. Skelly has been a resident of Altoona since 1902 and has resided resided at her present address for the last 32 years.

The story of Purim has its roots in the ancient kingdom of Persia four centuries before the beginning Lof the Christian era. According to the Book of Esther. Ahasuerus, King of the Persians, was displeased displeased because his wife, Vashtl was disobedient, deposed her and married Esther, a Jewish girl, and a cousin of Mordecai, one of the important men in the kingdom. King Ahasuerus selected Hainan, a favorite general, as his prime minister and trouble threatened the Jews. Because he had a quarrel with Mordecai, Haman plotted against all the Jews in the kingdom. He went to his sovereign with false tales of Jewish disloyalty disloyalty and convinced Ahasuerus that he should issue an edict for the annihilation of the Jewish people In his domain. Armed with this royal order, the prime minister, Haman, drew lots to decide on which day the massacre massacre should occur. Hence the name "Purim," which means "lots." When Mordecai heard of the impending impending peril, he hastened to Esther and begged her to intercede with the king in behalf of her people. At first she demurred. The king did not know she was a Jewess, and besides the death penalty penalty hovered over anyone who came to the king without his express express command. Unless he extended extended to her, when she entered, his golden scepter as a symbol of life, she knew she would be doomed to die. But in the classic words of the Book of Esther which is read on every Purim in the synagogue, Mordecai refilled. "Think not with- with- in thyself that thou shalt escape in the king's house, any more than an ths Jews. For if thou homest thy peace at this time, then will relief and deliverance arise to we Jews from another place, but thou snd th father's house will perisn; and who knoweth but that thou art come t oroyal estate for Just such a tlms as this?" Sn F.sther went to the king. He extended the golden sceptre to her and promised her any lavor sne desired. She asked him to come to a banauet she had prepared, and when he came she told him the storv of Haman and his false ac cusations and his plot against the Altoona Girl Earns Place on Honor Roll Miss Dolores M.

Dear Unseen Advisor: I got the shock of my life when I found out my husband was unfaithful to me. I know I can't believe all the rumors but I saw things that made me suspicious. He denied it and still does. Is he sorry now for what he has done as he tries at times now to be so nice to me? Where have I failed as a wife? I don't want to be perfect as no one is but I got this shock when I least expected It.. I love him dearly and have tried to please him and give every possible comfort in our home. Have always tried to be neat and attractive but it seems he no longer loves me. He was always affectionate but now seems so indifferent. Wlttn he is cross he says I am not like other women. I don't know what he expects of me, as I have always tried to make our home a happy one. He is no longer jolly when he comes home and complains of not feeling well, but when he is out he is full of fun and life. It seems sometimes as though my heart would break because I have failed so miserably in trying to keep his love, I stuck to him through all difficulties and have overlooked many mistakes In his past but can't seem to forget this day or night. When he Is cross he tells me I should leave the sooner the better. better. Should I take this seriously and leave? I do love him. He told me he stepped out a long time ago and I never found it out when I told him afterwards he said I shouldn't believe everything he said but he usually spills the beans when he is cross.
