Less erffsstd over the knees will look graceful if the.v ire swung off-center and held al- parallel to each other. By ALICIA HART SEA Staff Writer Ever notice the graceful way an actress uses her legs when she sits down and crosses them? One of the reasons why Is because she is trained in the art ol crossing her legs. If she crosses them above the knees, the graceful slant legs take comes from a trick of swinging them a little oft center and holding legs together in a line that is almost parallel. There are oilier l-ricks of sitting pretty which an actress is taught. She reaches for her skirt from the back of her hips and pulls the fullness to the front before she sits. This is graceful as well as practical. Her skirt doesn't crush when she sits. An actress Is also taught to back i up to a chair and "feel" for It with her legs before she settles down. When a woman does that —whether the woman Is Mrs. Jjlin Jones seeking a chair for a same of bridge or an actress displaying her grace to an audience—she takes no chances ol missing her aim whei she sits.

But nothing I '"in say seems to sink in. Is there smitiing I can do to make h)r see that good manors arc nnnorL- am?" writes one of my readers. If you'rj; just starling to worry about her manners at age 13. it's going to be hard goinu. | For at her age good manners ' should already be an established 1 tubit. It's a lot easier to teach an eager- lo-learn, admiring 6 or 7-year-old Uie fundamentals of good manners, than to unit and try to learh them to a teen-ager who probably isn't nearly so easily influenced by a mother and who may R1T2 THIATRi BY REFRIGERATION resent any kind of criticism or correction. However, there are books of etiquet written especially for teen-agers, and you might find one of these to be a help to you, since they deal expressly with the social problems that are especially important to teen-agers. Also, it • would be wise to see that your daughter gets a s much social experience as possible. Keep Her Around Have her around when you entertain, instead of letting" her go off to the movies when you are having your friends in. Give her a job to do, so that she can forget her self-consciousness in helping you take care of guests. But most important of nil, demand that she treat the members of her own family with courtesy. No pirl whose manners are disagreeable at home is going to knoxv ho\v to act when she Is away from home. And .whenever you suspect (hat Horn* and Panntcroft Is Educational Problem LONDON -W_ The ministry of education admit that teenagers are as bartllmr to educators IE they are to parents. The ministry wants to expand its experimental courses in parentcraft in British schools but it has run into this problem: At what age should a girl begin to study how to become a successful mother? In a pamphlet "Citizens Growing Up," the ministry put it like this: "There are many who think that 13 or n Is too young, since much of what is learned at that age Is forgotten by the time a girl marries." But, on the other hand, it said, "girls at this age are mostly Interested In smal children, while at the age of 16 or thereabouts Ihcir Interest tends to shift i to boys or young men." The pamphlet-writers threw up their hand?. "It Is strongly urged," they advised, "that opportunities for homecraft and parentcraft should be given girls of every age in all types of schools."

Above all. don't dismiss her lack of manners as just a phase she Is going through. Good manners are important at every age—and the rude teen-ager suffers just as much from a lack of social grace as does an adult. Furthermore, the teenager's family has to suffer with her.
