WE THE WOMEN LET HIM CALL YOU By RUTH MILLETT. Newspaper Enterprise Assn A businessman asks advise wives to stop their husbands during KARL VON FRISCH, if I knew where to locale him, would gel. a note from me with both congratulations and a question . . . First, I'd commend him on his ability to know so much about how the busy little bee performs when she returns to the hive—heavily laden with nectar . . . (To hear Karl tell it, she must be in a class with the likes of little ole me and little ole you when we hit the „ack pot out among the dress racks.) At any rate, surrounded by other bees, she tells the source of her exciting new find by dancing . . . crawling over the comb in loops and circles her body doing a sort of "bee twist"—after which she does a few dainty steps in a certain direction and thereby tips the other bees off as to just, where they can also do well for themselves. I must say I'm truly amazed but not doubtful ... It sounds just like a female—whether a bee or a housewife . . . And, with the exception of the "twist" her performance has been duplicated by women the world over who, thinking they were flying around on another routine shopping tour, suddenly sailed through the door of a dress shop to find themselves right in the midst of values which were absolute "HONEYS" Then, ladened with that particular "nectar" they flew for home to put on a proud strut before the "drone bees" who elected lo stay home instead of winging their way to where all the fashionable buzzing was going on. Naturally, as she strikes a graceful pose and makes ready to go into her version of the industrious bee's dance of victory, she lets her friends know which way they may fly in order to cut in on a fair share of the sweet loot. However, in the case of the human bee. this can easily lead to hard feelings among the members of the neighborhood coffee club before which the victorious one is performing her jubilant danco-and I'll tell you .„„,.

But, such dilly-dally along the homeward route does not coincide with the bee's re~ turn trip . . . The bee, as ev eryone knows, always takes the shortest route home—heading in a bee-line, as it were . . . And, in her case, every winged sister in the colony knows that time has not been a-wastin' and the Highf they make will not. be a fulile one. So, all things considered, It would seem that bees can teach more lessons ttan the ones T learned years ago which were: never step on a bee while walking barefoot . . . And, while Polly's Pointers Tranquilizing Bath DEAR POLLY—One of m> five daughters is at that trans* itlonal stage, not yet a young lady and certainly not a child. I want her to relinquish her tics to childhood gradually arid mature naturally without undue haste and confusion. Like many mothers with teen-age daughters we have had repeated sessions trying to reach a mutual understanding of such problems as the amount of social liberty she should enjoy.

Abigail Van Buren the mark of a deep-thinker to take a long look at a bench before he sits down in a yard where blossoms are plentiful and the bees are thinking about the cold winter days ahead—as they momentarily rest—on the bench—from their nectar-gathering chores . . . (Recalling my stroll through the clover—and the time my mind was somewhere else when I plopped down on the bench—BRIEFLY- -I can assure you that bees don't like to be crowded.) And, speaking of allowing them plenty of space brings me right up to the question I had in mind to ask this scholarly gentleman--who seems to know so much about bee conduct . . . What I want to know is this: Just how did he manage to observe so much bee activity . . . Did he use a strong pair of field glasses . . . Did he peer through one of those enclosed hoods worn by bee handlers . . . Or, is he just taking someone's word for all this??? Somehow, for reasons just mentioned, it is my opinion that nobody . . . but NOBODY ... can hang around a hive — unprotected — long enough to know that much Bill Tracey, and Bobby Owens.

This relaxing bath routine is a wonderful way to calm overwrought, nerves.—MRS. J. P. DEAR POLLY- My pointer is for the men. Take an old plastic detergent bottle (the large ones are better) and tie a string to it. Then take a weight and tie it to the string. When you go fishing, you can mark the place you fish by letting the weight drop under the water. The bottle will float on top and mark the suot.— GARY. BOYS — and fishing girit, too —Put the top back on tha empty plastic bottle so no water seeps in to keep It from really floating on top. POLLY. DEAR POLLY — Washcloths purchased from the store art usually too small to enable one to wash the middle of his back when taking a bath. Make two big washcloths by cutting * 16x24-inch terry cloth towel in half. Use one of these when you bathe. You can grasp a corner in each hand and scrub your back with ease.— ART.
