LOIS LEEDS. For Vour Boy and Vour Girl j By Arthur Dean, Sc.D. Milk and Lemon Bleach- Dear Miss Leeds In one of your articles you mention milk and lemon juice as a bleach. How is it used? Should it be left on overnight or warned off? Will it bleach freckles? LUCY C. Answer This is a mild bleach. After cleansing your skin leave the bleach on for an hour or so. It will not remove dark freckles, but tends to fade them and lighten the skin in general. LOIS LEEDS. Superfluous Hair. Dear Miss Leeds I am very self-conscious about having hairs on my lip. I have tried bleaching them and plucking them- I have hairy arms, too. How can I get rid of the hairs? MISS A. L. Answer There are drawbacks to any method you may use in regard to the hairs, but I think bleaching is the most practical in your case. Constant plucking encourages the growth and may In time irritate the skin. The use of depilatories or the razor is out of the question for the facial hair. My advice is to make the best of the condition and be thankful that the growth Ls not darker and longer. If your arms are very shaggy you might clear them of hair now and then with a cream depilatory. LOIS LEEDS. Boys and Girls Hate Problems Too. Two men of exceptional promi- ! nence, both interested in this column, one a child psychologist and the other a professor of education, have made ment. It is: To present some problem of exceptionl importance to youth and invite boys and girls to think it through and then send in their answers with any added comment they wish to mase. Both of these men believe that this column represents the inly attempt yet made to discuss iht problems of youth from youth's standpoint. So we are taking their suggestirr and present today the first of a series ot practical moral issues which face young people in daily school We. The first problem is Cheating." A letter which we can publish without signature will be most interesting when it accompanies yoi:r "Yes," or "No." The Problem. "At our regular weekly test the teacher left the room after he had passed out the questions. Ir a class of twenty there were only two who did not cheat. "The next day I saw t'f.e tt&cher and told him the situation.
