So don't try to make yourself a carbon copy of anyone else. The teen • ager who tries for a short period lo imitate a favorite actress, follows-with a spell of aping the school beauty, then steals the stuff of a popular movie star, never gives herself a chance to develop her own style, It's not smart to toss away your own individuality. After all, what's the... percentage, in beirjg a poor carbon copy of the original? If, for example, a new shade of blue crops up in the fashion world, and every givl in your' crowd simply "must have it," b; a bit above the crowd if the shade doesn't look right on you. Don't worry about being criticized. You've got a sensible answer if you're nagged about why you didn't buy "the blue." Even the boys in your group will be smart enough to appreciate a girl who has enough on the ball to stick to her guns. Ex- a Co ca t j plain your reason tactfully, ! Ihriugh. No need to sound superior. You'll not lose your popularity, and may even convince a few of I he other girls that they can be individuals and still be part of the crowd.

But remember when you choose frames to be sure you have given thought to where -you'll wear Ihem, the shade that will go best with most of your clothes, and the contour that's best for your fnce. Your lenses should be large enough not to cut off the outer edge of your eye. The width across -the top should be slightly wider than your face. Your frames should follow, generally, the line of your brows, but never hide it completely. When you wear make - up, be sure it doesn j t clash wit' the color of your frames. You can go a little more heavily on eye make-up thnn those who don't wear specs, , Don't be shy about wearing'glas- ses. Perky frames can improve rather thnn detract from your good looks. Courtesy Is Charm Courtesy is an integral part of chnrm. And if you constantly keep your escort wailing, you are guilty of a breach of good manners. When you suggest that your date call for you at eight o'clock, ;you should be ready at that time. You'll look better for one thing, for (here will be no last - minute hurry about clothing or makeup, and your consideration of him will boost your popularity index.

His normal h o m e- f and our four children plan to! comin g tin ">e is around 9:00 p.m., drive to British Columbia to visit his sister, her husband and their five children- We have t h r,e e week's vacation coming. Haven't seen these folks for four years, and think it would be lots of fun. We will stay with them, of course, since we don't know anyone else up there. Now for our problem: Should we let them know we are coming, or should • we just drive up to their back door and surprise them? My husband is sort of superstitious and says it is bad luck to reveal your plans in advance, and he wants to surprise them, Would this be proper? B. C- BOUND DEAR B. C. BOUND: This would be HIGHLY improper, and J.I suggest you write first. Your husband's sister might be superstitious about thirteen people in a home that ordinarily houses sev- ! en. ; ; DEAR ABBY: How do you tactfully tell a .neighbor woman that you would like to entertain once in a while without her presence? Every time a car drives into my driveway, my neighbor "joins us- She is a good neighbor in many ways, but we do not travel in the same circles. Many of my friends do not care for her. (Her language is a bit on the vulgar side.) I'don't want to hurt her feelings, as we both own our own homes and I like to be on good terms with my neighbors, but if I don't find a solution to this problem my husband is going to but lately he has been pulling in at 4:30 and 5:00 a^m. When I ask him where he's been, he says at the corner tavern. They close the place at 2:00, but he claims that just means they lock the door and tlort't let any more customers in, but anyone who is already in can | stay as long as he likes. Is this true? Or am I just plain— GULLIBLE DEAR GULLIBLE: True or untrue, the real question is, "What has the corner tavern got that your home hasn't got from 9:00 P'm. to 5.00 a.m.?," If you don't firfd out, you are more than "gullible," clear. You're sunk! .Everyone has a problem, What's yours? For a personal reply, write to Abby in care of this paper.
