(#)-Th» marriageable girl's chaperone persists in Mexico but she l« gradually giving way to modern influence. That trio seen entering i (movie Sunday afternoon Is'quite likely to be a courting couple and aunt, or perhaps a sister, niayb* It's a little brother who tags along. A relic of (he day when daughters •ere cloistered In the home until lift marriage, the custom was brought from Spain. It lingers now imong the well-to-do middle class ind especially in the smaller cities. Some Mexican men insinuate that iome of the supposed chaperones •ide. They suspect the girl friend •ings In an undated companion on the entertainment—a sort of double dnte with one man. One' such explained: "Going out In Mexico is expen- .ive. Some women like to go to the bcsl places and have men spend money on them. This is one of the many forms of women's vanity. Lonely Days "For this reason, since manV men Cannot afford to take a girl out, there are many lonely women especially on holidays. ' ''And when some brave man burdens himself with a girl, this girl adds a sister, a cousin or a friend. This is not exactly chaperonag*; out the women's social necessity to be entertained at the expense of the brave or the well-to-do." Chaperonage seldom begins until a girl is 15 y»ars old. By Spanish custom, her 15th birthday party is her coming-out party. She get's a r>arty dress, her father leads her In the first waltz and the family begins thinking about her marriage. Chaperone Enters ' That Is when the chaperone Is likely to enter the girl's lite. If the girl Is still unmarried bv the time she is 30, then she u old enough to chaperone somebody else By the unwritten rules, a chaperone does not take part in the conversation. The girl walks be- Lween her chaperone and her escort. The chaperone does not laugh at Jokes. She does not even appear to hear them—unless they are the sort ol Joke she should not hear. The escort pays for the chaper* one's movie tickets, her meals or refreshments In a restaurant and tier carfare. He U not supposed to bring her Into the conversation The chaperone Is there but everybody Ignores her. Her role Is to report to the father anything of which she disapproves. .If - her. report is adverse, the young man will probably find the girl has been forbidden to go out with him again.' Poor and Rich Exempt The poor girls and the very rich are. as a rule, unencumbered by chaperones. The poor because they are less concerned with the financial standings, social position and perhaps, intentions of the boys they go out with. The rich because they follow the freer ways of cosmopolitan society. An exception Is found among some old families of Imprint Stationery 100 Single Sheets or 50 Double with 50 Envelopes $1.00 51) Personalized Napkins 5100 •10 Imported Dinner Napkins $1.00 Greeting Cards for All Occasions ....

A . , AjHs In ^ lv -"» '" (By -VF.A Senrke) Not to be overlooked in these nays of rush and run Is the imount ol dressing time you working girls budget for yourselves each morning. For If you arrive »l the office with your hair still up In pin curls, your slip slightly askew, and your hose hanging haphazardly, you may well consider taking stock of the situation. To save minutes in the morning, decide what you will near before you go to bed. B« sure thnt all repairs such as loose buttons and torn hems have been made. Plan your accessories thoughtlully. Allow at least one hour in the morning for breakfast and dressing. Get into the habit of scheduling your time so that at eight o clock you are brushing your teeth, and at eight-fifteen you are drinking orange juice. At least 15 minutes should be set aside Tor vour make-up cthis should Include your personal daintiness routine), and 15 minutes for actual dressing. Watch for stray threads and lint, If you wear seamed stockings, be positive they are straight. Keep everything In its place. Searching for shoes or hat pins at the last crucial moment can have a devastating effect. HOB- much easier and pleasanter to know, without having to give the matter any thought, just where to find everything! A carelully planned morning routine, will make a difference in your whole day.

H»v« you «ver stopped t» think wh«t an Important role a woman's speaking voice plays In th« happiness of her hom«? Oo Into a house where th« mother's volc« la «h«rp wh«n ah* eor- rects • child, petulant when she speaks to her husband, h*rsh when fhe points out tnotbe^e shortcomings, triumphant when she says "I told you so," and the chances »re you aren't in » happy household. That voice i» too busy antagonizing all day, every day, to create > hippy atmosphere, But go into a house where the woman's voice Is quietly warm when she corrects a child, amused when she points out a human frailty, sollly feminine when she talks to her husband, and It's a different house entirely. That voice encourages and soothes, laughs and teases, quietly directs, and peace Is usually the result. Women can't be all-wise snd always cheerful. But they can do a lot about their voices. It's How You Say [t That Cminti Nagging Isn't words. It's a tone of voice. Sharpness with a child isn't just words. It's a tone of voice. Hatefulness often isn't in what Is said, but the voice in which the words are spoken. Watch your voice if you want to create a happy atmosphere around you. What you say Isn't nearly as important as how you say it. And how you feel will not be nearly so apt to affect your family if you watch your voice. You may be tired but it's when you let your voice become dispirited that- the whole iamily reflects your tiredness. Start really listening to other ivomen's voices. If you don't believe, how Important your own really Is. Read Courier News Classified Ads.
