MONDAY BROOKLYN TIMES UNION SEPTEMBER 12, 1932 Leading CHESTER'S 1 I - - No House Ever Built Is Large Enough to Hold Son, Mother, and Daughter-in-Law and Still Have Room Left for Any Happiness. It has often been said that no home is large enough for two women who love the same man. I believe that to be true. No house is large enough for the mother, the son, and the daughter-in-law, all fighting for possession of each other. When it comes to that situation I believe that the girl's rights are to be protected. The mother has had her day and her chance at her son. When he marries he- takes a young girl from the home of her parents, and promises her everything. If he splits that everything with his mother, then he is cheating his wife, and there are no ifs or buts about it. Somo girls are largo enough to take a small portion and like It. Other girla simply cannot. Personalities enter into it also, and many mothers-in-law just simply cannot be lived with, and no man has a right to ask his wife to live with his mother. Settle those things before marriage. Don't Go Dear Hiss Chester: I have often read your interesting column, and now I am coming to you tor some comments. I am the mother of two fine boys, both married, both childless. Until recently I have lived alone in a. large house, the home of the children. They have come there and have brought their wives and we have all been happy. Now I feel that the large home Is too much for me. to handle alone and I cannot afford help. I have a fine opportunity to sell the home, and nm thinking of doing it. The boys think I would be happier with the Income I have and the income from the sale of the house than if I stayed here for always. I have always wanted to travel and I am going to start now. The question is where I shall live. One of the boys wants me to make my home with him. Of course, I shall not be there much, but would like to have some small place to call home. He has a large apartment, and Is moving to a still larger one. His wife has said nothing to mo about It one way or the other. Tho other wife (you can see I am modern, as are my children) told me frankly that she liked me but did not want to take a chance by trying to live with me. I don't know whether to accept the Invitation of my other son or not. I don't want lo make anyone unhappy, and yet 1 do want some flace of my own. MOTHER-IN-LAW. Dear Mother: Then why not get a place of your own not a room in another woman's house. It seems to me that the wife has given you your cue. She can't prevent her husband, apparently, from saying what HH wants, but she can keep still herself and hns done so. And, when all is said and done, it Is HER home. I don't think you ought to consider moving into another woman's home without a definite Invitation, and then 1 think It would be a mistake. Let the young people have their own places, and take a small apartment somewhere else. Choose what furniture you want to keep, and put It in storage against your coming trip. When you return, get out the furniture and take a small place where you can be your own boss and invite your friends in when you want them. If you have always managed a large house, a small apartment with everything in every corner, and the kitchenette so compact and convenient will be just plav for you. and convenient play at that. If you have your own plate you can have your friends in to stay with you, can invite your children to little apartment dinners, can visit them as a welcome guest, rather than seeing them daily us an unwanted burden. It is natural for young people to want their homos to themselves. Think buck In your own youth, ind you'll see that you did too. They simply don't want an older woman around. Older women Just cant keep still. They have to advise and offer and talk. - Your daughter-in-law has given you your cue, and if you want her j-espect and admiration stay independent and modern. Get your own place. SL'KAN. (. Other Places Dear Mis? Chester: I have been reading your column for some months but this Is the first time 1 have had any reasun to Write to any rolumn for help. Now I do need help. I am a girl. 19, and hiii an orphan. I have a mall apartment by myself, and have a steady Job, which is something to be thankful for in these times. Rece ntly 1 met n young man )n whom I am deeply interested. WO find that wo have much in common and I am most anxious to continue tho friendship. There is one cateh, however. Ho has quite a lot of money and he wants to tako me out to placs whore it is necessary to dress quite elaborately all the time. I have been with him several times and have worn all the clothes I own or could borrow for these occasions. Now I ennnot keep that up,, and yet I don't want to lose him. I simply cannot go into debt for clothes to go out in, and yet I don't Medical Baths Institute, Inc. 24-Zq Weil 281k St.. New York EI.FXTKK1 ANI tiAI.VANIC BATHS HNK NU lll.K SI 1. I'll!

(Copyright, 111-'"-. Publishers Syndicate) want to toll him for fear he will think I am not worth his time and trouble. You tee lie is used to knowing girls who have everything, and when I meet them I feel that I must do him credit. I went to high school and had two years at college and so I know how to behave, but the clothes problem worries me. Can you give me some advice? BERYL. My dear Beryl: I can give you loads of advice, just bushels of it. In the first place don't get the idea that clothes are so all-fired important. What is important is the manner. Get the manner, my dear, and you're set for life. I, mean by "manner" that ability to throw on an old sweater with a skirt witli a hole in it and a battered old felt hat and step out and get attention in crowded department stores. That is the ability to sweep through places in any old thing, and get attention and service just because you are YOU, and not because you are wearing a new suit. Tell the young man, right away, that this social life is killing you. Tell him that you can't keep a job and play the giddy butterfly too. Tell him also that he can just stop asking you to big affairs more . than once a month, because you haven't the clothes to make appearances In and that you can't afford to buy them, Tell him that you will be glad to sit at home, or step out to tho theatro or go anywhere where it isn't necessary to dress, but that working girls can't be butterflies. If he's got any sense he will understand that a girl making $25 a week, and living on it, can't live and dress like a girl who gets 100 a week Just for clothes. If you did show up in new finery every now and then he'd have good reason to wonder how you do It and to draw his own conclusions. Don't be sorry for yourself, and don't fret about, clothes. That's the greatest waste of time In the world. The business woman has to dress to suit her station In life and the butterfly to suit hers. Many evening frocks and .wraps, in the ordinary course of events, would simply do smy for you, as a working elrl. The other girl would have little use for the practical semi-sports fpreks and coats which make up your ordinary wardrobe. Don't get to feeling sorry for yourself beeause you can't live the way his other friends live. If you can't, you can't, and that's all there is to that. The fait that he is giving you quite a plav shews that he has the ability to like and understand gins whose life is different from hi own or that of his friends. Give the fellow credit for sns' and let it go at that nnd don't bankrupt yourself buying a lot of trippery that you 11 have no oth use for. Want to Join?

At that time here was born a great influence which was to be exerted in women's causes everywhere. She is Rosika Schwimmer, and cables, letters and telegrams are already pouring in from the great ones of the world testifying to the love and respect in which she is held everywhere. At present, living in New York, Madame Schwimmer is a citizen of no country at all. Although she was said to be "a woman of su perior character and intelligence, obviously more than ordinarily ae- rable as a citizen of the i: rr.ro l States," by none other than the very American and venerable Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, she was denied the right of citizenship re. That was because she is not willing to kill others, or to "bear irms against others, even in times of war. She is known as the first woman in history to become an ambassador from one country to another. Hungary sent hrr as ambassador to Switzerland. She was the leading spirit in the Ford peace enterprise during the World War. Jane Adams, Stephan Zweig, Selma Lagerlof, Romain Holland those are some of the names of persons proud to call her "friend." She is, on her 65th birthday, a woman without a country but a woman of all countries. LLOYDS GOING ABROAD Hollywood. Sept. 12.

The rage family had entertained guests over the week-end. They left late Sunday night. Company was good fun but it left Nancy worn out. Io maid, a nleco seven months old, a son who was four, a ten months old baby daughter and a husband kept Nancy busier than ever she had been before. As she lifted the tablecloth to shake out the crumbs she groaned to think of all the work ahead of her. The clothes had to be sorted and prepared for the laundress who came on Tuesday, the rooms had to be cleaned, beds made, food ordered, meals planned Nancy's thoughts went on and on until she grew more tired by the min ute. She pulled herself up with a start. "Now see here, Nancy rage, you can't do more than one thing at a time. You don't have to do the whole weeks work this minute, this hour or this day. Why don t you attack the dishes which are Just nhead of you, get them out of the way and then go to tho next Job. While Nancy washed and wiped the dishes she decided to make out a schedule for each day's work. With this schedule typed and hanging in her kitchen it would be easy to do the day s work that was ahead of her. She would not have to attack Tuesday until tho day came. On the Monday schedule Rhc put "straighten house after Sun day's disarray. Mako up Su sail's milk formula. Telephone order for groceries. (This would be small for Monday was a day when Sunday left-overs could well be used. A trip to market was useless for few places had fte'sh fruits and vegetables on hand on Monday.) Sort clothes tor laundress, ihere were baths, children's meals, dishes nnd bed-making added. Hut that list included nil the work that posi lively had to be done on Mon day. Tuesday had a differen seiiedule. so did each day of th week. Hut the plan helped Just necause each day s work had a beginning and nn end. Tomorrow, Nancy Pae will present another of her beautiful quilt patterns. Friend to All Countries, Edited by GRETCHEN WEAVEK- Woolen Frocks Add Novel Fur Jackets l sories. I It V, LT f I z 1 Si wjMtjr- Copyright, 193: This Luncheon Easy to Serve Back to Home for Entertaining Guests in Simple Gracious Fashion. Many hopeful people now believe some good things are resulting from this much talked of depres sion. Doubtless most nomemaKcrs will agree that ono of these is the return to popularity of the good old custom of entertaining at home. Dinner and luncheon parties at hotels, tea rooms and clubhouses are being replaced by parties at home. One of tho simplest and easiest ways to entertain in your own homo Is with a luncheon party. The menu and service for such a party should be Blmple enough to require no maid. With a little careful plahnlng In advance the hostess should be able to serve a luncheon easily nnd without noticeable effort and should derive as much enjoyment from it as do the guests themselves. Here is a simple luncheon menu that should give no trouble, even to an Inexperienced hostess: iAiniiieon Party Menu Iced Honey Dew Balls Raked Stuffed Tomatoes Cucumber Salad Melba Toast Ice Cream in Meringue Shells Iced Coffee This menu Is so planned that everything can be completed In 2, by Fashion Coordination Bureau, Inc. MUST KEEP SLIM 1 1 . Small hats that hug the hear, showing its lines, and long slim skirts that reveal the, lines of the figure, are two important features of the season's mode. Hins and shoulders must be kept free ipian to wear tne newer irocks witn success. By THE FASHION COORDINATOR Many of the smart new wool dresses for autumn have their own little fur wraps or jackets. These permit the dress to be worn well on Into the season, and are economical as well, for they may be worn with several different outfits. The simple spectator sports dress skotched Is in a rich shade of wine sheer wool. The brief short sleeved bolero, 'with high collar and scarf, Is of beige lapln, which makes a charming combination with the darker shade of the frock. Wine colored sailor or beret, and beige doeskin slipons are smart acces- advance except the baking of the tomatoes. They can be prepared ahead of time and baked just before serving. Here is the recipe: llukcd Stuffed Tomatoes 6 firm, ripe tomatoes 2 cups fresh or canned corn 1 small onion 1 green pepper 1 tablespoon butter 1 teaspoon salt 1 cup rice flakes, rolled Wash tomatoes, remove a thin slice from top of each and scoop out centres. Combine tomato pulp with corn. Add onion and green pepper which have been finely chopped and browned in butter. Add salt and rice flakes. Fill tomato shells with prepared mix ture, riace in a baking dish with a little water. Bake 30 minutes In a moderate oven (360 D. F.). This recipe provides an excellent way for serving fresh corn while It is in season. Baked stuffed tomatoes besides being delicious are healthful because of the addition of rice flakes which contain cereal cellulose, a natural vegetable substance which furnishes the body with a roughage similar to the roughage of the fresh vegetables themselves. Ice cream In meringue shells suggested for tho lust course of the luncheon provides that catererlike touch which transforms the ordinary menu with a real party menu. The meringue shells may be filled with any kind of Ice cream, When the hostess has an automatic refrigerator it Is possible to prepare the Ice cream the day before and have it ready for last minute serving. from all excess poundage if you Wear a Capelet To Keep in Style All Varieties With or With out Ruffles to Be Popular This Winter. By ANNE TRACY. If you don't own at least two tiny capes this winter, you are simply going to be out of the picture entirely. Even now they are being worn Instead of the coatee. One of the smartest I've seen is the plain, very, very short capelet, that opens in tho back. Tou hang it around your neck like a bib. But around the neck is a large, upstanding velvet ruff and if that doesn't hold the man of the moment, nothing can. Off Side Play For the opening football season's dances, let me recommend the offside capelet. That is a complicated system of scarves around the neck line with an off-side, or side, diagonal opening. Another ducky shoulder covering is the one destined ONLY for the very young ingenue. If your eyes are big, and your voice tiny, and your whole get-up appealing and fragile, this is for you. Other wise not. It is a collar and sleeves, com posed almost entirely of ruffles, Into which you are buttoned. The collar is round and ruffled and the sleeves are just one ruffle after another. It buttons in the back. Fur Trimming Fur. especially the old stand-by, galyak, Is being much used for trimming on dresses this fall. One wool crepe model features a galyak vestce something new and startling. Another frock la made with a gulmpe, the bottom of the dress in wool crepe, while white wool mesh makes the guimpe, with the large puff sleeves. Afternoon frocks of the more formal sort feature the richer furs for trimming in bands. What's In a Name? EUNICE Our forefathers regarded all names commencing with the syl lable "Eu," meaning "happy" or well, as of good augury. Here is a partial list of these names Eunice, "happy victory;" Evan gellne (or Evangelus), "the mes senger of good tidings;" Eudora, "happy gift;" Eudoxla, "happy approval;" . Eugenia, "the well born;" Eulalie, "the good talker,' and Euphemia, "silence." About the most well known Eunice is the Jewish mother of Timothy. The bay is the emblem of the names beginning with "Eu" and reward of merit their motto. FLAMES MENACE STUDIOS Los Angeles, Sept. 12.

(Copyright, 1832, FuDinnere syndicate) Must Eat Meals "Piecing" Between Meals Destroys Child's Appetite for Regular Food. Btf MYRTLE MEYER ELDRED It is nearly impossible to per suade a child to cat the proper amount of food at a meal it all the Intervals between are punctuated with tidbits. Unless a balanced three-times-a-day diet Is carried out consistently, It Is likewise near ly impossible to encourage a gain in weight. The result is that under weight and underdevelopment are often tied up with nothing more serious than between-mcal piecing. Mrs. A. C. writes that her baby of 15 months weighs 22 pounds and has six teeth with two more almost through. She cut the first two at eight months and no more until within the past week. East Between Meals "She takes lour eight-ounce bot ties of milk a day. For breakfast she has one strip of bacon, one Diece of toast, and a small bowl of cereal. At noon she has a small bowl of soup, custard, and things from the table such as potato and gravy or mashed green beans. In the evening she has cereal and milk from a cup. Between meals she has wafers, bananas and pieces of toast. "She tries hard to talk, but can sav only four or five words plainly. She has been on her teet since six months and walked at 10 months. She goes up and down stairs like a two-year-old. She does not gain as she should. Also I have no luck breaking her. She is afraid of her toilet chair and cries until sho is taken off. She has one movement a dav. about 8 o'clock In the morn lng. What shall I do about this?' Gain Is Ideal A half pound gain each month is all that can be expected alter one year of age. If your baby weighed the expected 21 Y at ono year, she would now weigh exactly --Ji pounds. Nothing better than that could bo possible. If sho has 12 teeth at 18 months, that is also keeolne right ud to schedule. He speech Is slightly but not seriously below average for a child of her ago. The only fly In your ointment Is the meals. It Is never advisable to feed a baby from the table. The child's meals should be planned : with her particular needs in mind, and it is better that the family cat the child's diet than vice versa. At noon she needs a vegetable, egg or meat or fish or chicken or cottage cheese, a milk nnd cereal pudding, and milk to drink. Plan Meals At night fruit sauce should be added to your present fare. All of this is outlined In the leaflet. "Feeding From 12 to 18 Months," which offers choices of various foods for tho different meals. Send a self-addressed, stamped envelope with your request for tho leaflet to Mrs. Eldred. Ask for It by name. Between-meal pleclngs aro unnecessary and destructive of the zest for food with which a child should approach each regular meal. Bananas, toast nnd wafers can all be part of nny regulnr meal, but are not to bo fed between menls. The babv Is three months past the age when bottles go out of the picture. She should be offered one glass or cup of milk at each meal. Bottles belong to Infancy, and your baby crossed that threshold when she celebrated her first birthday.
