Take Steps To Be A Good Neighbor In winter it is fairly easy to take your neighbors or leave them a- ionelone. But in the summer with children playing out-of-doors, families doing a lot of their living outside, and with houses opened up to catch a breeze, you've got to take your neighbors and they have to take you. You can't leave each other alone. So what kind of a neighbor are you? One. Have you learned how to maintain a friendliness toward your neighbors without overdoing it so that you are forever borrowing or running in on them at any hour of the day? Two. Do you make sure your children don't "live" at the neighbors? Three. Do you occasionally check to make sure that your radio or television isn't turned on so loud it seems to be aimed at the aext- door neighbors? Four. If you have to correct the neighbors' children, can you do it in such a way that you aren't that "mean woman" to the neighbor -hood gang? Respect Neighbors' Privacy Five. Do you allow your next- door neighbors to have privacy in their own yards so that they can eat, entertain guests, and relax out-of-doors without any fear of being interrupted by your wandering over to join the group? Six. Do you refuse to pass on neighborhood gossip, however spicy is may be? Seven. When a new family moves into the neighborhood, do you allow them to find out about people for themselves instead of rushing in to tell them which neighbors they will like and which are hard to get along with? Eight. Do you go by the theory that where your neighbors are concerned the best policy is "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil"? A good way to keep your wardrobe in tip-top shape is to have a week-end check without fail. Sort out the clothes that need cleaning, that are minus buttons, that need pressing, that need fresh collars and cuffs. And you'll avoid that sinking last-minute feeling you get when a survey of your closet reveals you have literally nothing to wear.

Reduction or weight should be slow — to to five pounds a month if you want to prevent wrinkles and baggy skin. Remember, the slower you lose, the easier it will be to keep your weight down. After four or five months of reducing, rest for a few months, then continue. Your blue eyes will look even bluer when you wear violet or yellow with a bit of turquoise.
