Painting or sketching, for example, are absorbing, don't require great talent to enjoy and are amenable lo Indoor or outdoor assignments, depending on your whim. More value of hobbles such as these, says Miss Van Evera, Is that they help you to expand your circle of friends by bringing you in touch with other enthusiasts. Volunteer service work provides another rewarding Interest for the bachelor girl, maintains the author. The feeling of lending a helping hand, of creating and participating In community life is a wonderful tonic for the emotions. What type of volunteer work does she recommend? Almost any service for which you have an inclination or talent. If you enjoy children, such a service job might be with Girl Scouts or Camp Fire Girls or it might be tutoring a sick child 01 friend. What is Important, says Miss Van Evera. is that you find a niche to suit your talents and then accept the responsibility of sticking by your volunteer work, Death Comes for Third And Last Time to Man Who 'Died' Twice Before BALTIMORE.
