[n modern limes no one has offered a good explanation for the custom of female wooing in leap years, but It seemed lo be well known in 1283. That year Scotland passed a law. It snid that in leap years any single 8irl could propose publicly to any man not married or engaged. If the man turned her down he was to be fined. France passed a similar law a few years later and the 15th century Genoa and Florence Joined in. Basically, leap years have nothing to do with who proposes to whom. They are just a means to make our years come out even, It takes the earth 365 da.vs, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 46 seconds to travel around the sun.

Tomorrow t it's Whitsitt's 'Because You Like Smart Things' Too-Close Friend May Not Be Any Friend at All There Is such B thing as a woman having too cMse a friend. She is too close n friend if: You feel you can't ever entertain without Including her. She feels free to tell you the unkind Rnd uncomplimentary things thnt someone else says about you. You tell her all of your personal troubles, including the short- *" RuU TMlUctt coming. 1 ; of your husband. She is always critical of- anything you buy If she wasn't along to help you select it. She is forever offering advice. She feels perfectly free to drop in any time. She feels she knows you .=o well she can be "perfectly frank" In everything she says. This is Just an excuse for not bothering to show you the courtesy and respect she shows others. Beware tier Betterment Frogr.iins She is always trying to improve you, Instead of letting you be yourself. She knows just how you should dress, just how you should decorate your living room, ,just how you .should bring up your children. She wants a full accounting of any party you attend to which she was not hwiteri. Sho feels free to ask any kind of personal question, -from how much you paid for your new drirss to how you are getting along with your In-laws. She is jealous of your other friends. She monopolizes ycur time. Close friends :\re wonderful as- cls. But a too close friend will in time always become a nuisance.

In r.ot too long a time men in the Northern Hemisphere would be planting their crops In January, And they uould celebrate Christmas in the midst of a heat wave appropriate to Aug- That Js what had happened In Caesar's time. The calendar was three months behind and months that were supposed to be fait were really winter!, The emperor set things ahead again. Then, with the aid of his astronomers, he decreed that every fourth year should have 3fi6 days. That worked pretty "well for a long time. But it supposes the year to be Just six hours lunger than 365 days. That is too long by 11 minutes. 14 seconds. It amounts to a day in l2fl years. By 1582, the calendar was 10 days off. Pope Gregory ordered the 5th of October to be reckoned as the 15th of October. He also ruled that century years (1800, 1900, etc.) should not be leap years unless they cecds the length of a irue year by 26 seconds a year. That amounts to a day in 3,323 years. In case you want to worry about that. It has been proposed that (he years 4,000, 8.000 and all other multiples of 4.000 be common years. If that is done there would be one day variation In about 20,000 years. Coming Events Buffet Saturday supper and dancing at Country Club. Supper will be served at 1:30 p.m. and will be followed by dancing. Bridegroom Recruited At Minnesota Wedding WQRTHINGTON, Minn.
