g Fridoy, October 20, 1944 By MAE S.UNOEUS Are men more vain than women? Dr. Fredeik-k Woellner, speaker here this week, slyly emphasized that women look more often in the mirror, but softened bis observation with the remark. "They do it. objectively as though it were a piece ot art. At least they are never satisfied with themselves, while Mien can look in a mirror •with perfect self-satisfaction." Jt is generally conceded that women do look at themselves in the mirror more than'men do but as Doctor Woellner t=aid it isn't •with that passionate admiration that men lonk upon their visage with the Inner <on\inioii "My what a handsome brute I am."

Now he does il quite naturally." With most women naturally grateful for courteous ways there are some that need to match male thoughtl'ulriess with their own renovation of manners.
