FKODKLTN TfAKY EA'GLE, NEW TURK, TUESDAY, XEGUST T?3 7ie Cay; Fits Put It On It's One of the Many New Autumn Hat Styles 17-Year Old Home Might Be Influenced By Bier Brother Friend Believing that many persons are confronted with personal problems, anxious for advice, but unwilling to seek it from friends or relatives. The Eagle invites its readers to write to Helen Worth, who will give each communication close personal attention. Write vnder your own name or an assumed one ASD OS OSF SIDE OF THE PAPER ONLY. Advice by Helen Worth Dear Helen Worth It is a long time since I last wrote you, I know. But if you should receive a letter from each of your friends and admirers each time we feel impelled to write an appreciation of the broad service you are giving in the solution of varied and un-- counted human problems-well, I'm afraid you would be so completely buried that the mailman would be unable to find; you at all the next time he called! P1(ir uretd- 1how"'er-?l- I though you do not always receive tanmblp nroof that hundreds of ns are with you in your inspiring and helpful work. In fact, your beloved column though not always the longest and most prominent among The Eagle's features is nevertheless so vital to Its life that were you to cease, the big bird's wings would be minus so many fine feathers and so crippled and handicapped that he would be unable to fly the distance and the heights where you so often carry him. (To quote your own conclusive words) "And that's that!" This letter concerns the one written by "Arlene" in the issue of July 29 and the 16-year-old brother who is making the home so unhappy, "The product of negligence or ignorance" this must be certainly but sadly true; and, again as you say, "the father should take control." But how? The 17th year is late for any corrective control to be effective. The seventh would be much more promising the first year best of all and conceded to be the easiest period to begin the training of a child. This boy, in his 17th year, has learned to intimidate others even fights with little boys 11 and 12 years of age. In his home and in the street he does as he pleases. According to "Arlene," their home is little more than a prison even worse, for their relatives and friends do not visit them and they are not invited out. This boy is in complete control of the situation and it will take the wisdom of Solomon to induce him to give it up without a struggle, to show him that in his bullying control of others he is slowly but surely losing all control of himself, and that the hard blows he is giving now to make others suffer will one day come back upon himself, and he will be the worst victim of all because of his own folly and misconstrued ideas of life. Has the father the necessary wisdom to "take control" here? Some boys at 16 these days are so over developed along certain lines that their fathers are no match for them along any lines. "Arlene" wrties that he is "disrespectful and unkind" to his parents, "both hardworking" she says. Does this mean that both parents go out to work? If so, may not this be one cause of the trouble? That's the point find ing the cause is always a big aid in the solution of a problem. j How long has the boy been acting ; this way? What is his scliooi recora how does he stand in his studies, with his teachers, with his associates? Interested in games, and does he play fair? Parental supervision in choosing his friends? Has he been allowed to entertain them in his home? Have living conditions at home been happy and wholesome? Does the boy know anything of the training "Back in the Old Sunday School," or is he a product of "The Sidewalks of New York"? Some of his traits he may not be entirely accountable for himself. There are many cases on record to prove that the boy is not really vicious but the victim of a hard blow, a serious fall or some physical defect. An operation has removed the cause. Were I a relative of this boy, I would not be one of those to stay away from him and his family. Rather would I contrive in some way to get him into the hands of a good psychiatrist for a thorough going-over mentally, physically and spiritually. As things are now, the boy recognizes no authority no wishes but his own. He is intoxi-eated with his own power and we might name a few other victims of a similar complex. This is the spirit of the gangster, isn't it? But stronger than that spirit within this boy, somewhere down deep in his heart is a spark of the divine. Breeders of cattle and hogs spend thousands of dollars to raise the standard of their product and to cure or protect them from disease, and the same is true of lovers of fine horses and dogs and cats. Recently I read of a noted doctor summoned to travel several hundred miles by airplane to attend a sick dog, and to reside with the owner a week or more, in order to be right there to treat the pet and restore him to health. Well and good no one loves animals more than I do! But here Is a BOY supposed to be one of the DON'T TEASE n7 krfU THEM rM& Vfi I f'jzMJSS with V I ill! BLACK FLAG Boy Rulimr assets of the nation, but whose present course, if not checked, will sooner or later wreck and disgrace his home and make him a public menace. Can we not do as much for him as would be done for a head , ... 01 Latlle or a uoB' What a fine thing it would be if a Y. M. C. A. secretafj', specializing in Boys' Work, or an experienced Scout Master one of those splendid young men leading so many boys to become useful and commendable Christian American citizens could be admitted as a member of this unhappy family and do for this boy, perhaps for the whole family, what the great doctor is doing for that pet dog I Perhaps this boy needs, more than anything else, a genuine friend a real pal of the right sort. Possibly if one of "Arlene's" "boy friends" had been wise and strong and true, he could have made sure of "Arlene" by first making sure of the boy, and so proving a blessing to all concerned. Perhaps this boy can be helped not so much by punishment as by example the sort of learning that is caught more than taught inspired by infinite wisdom and understanding, with great faith and patience, and all guided by love the LOVE of the Master who, while hating the sin, still loves the sinner. There may yet be the making of a man in this boy. Not an easy task but that is the challenge of it! And the goal-saving a human soul for his God, for his home, for his country, for himself! May God send some such Big-Brother-Friend to this boy! IN HIS NAME, I. W. D. My dear "I. W. D." Although it is a long time since a letter from you has reached this department, your contributions are always accorded a hearty welcome. Thank you for all the kind things you say. While, like the report of Mark Twain's death, my usefulness is grossly exaggerated, nevertheless I thank you for the many kind remarks. A big brother friend might save "Arlene's" brother from himself and restore some semblance of family living in that home. Perhaps "Arlene," groping for a remedy, has found some suggestion in the letters sent to this department that will prove helpful. I hope so. Thank you for a fine and constructive letter. HELEN WORTH. Hospital Company Holds Maneuvers Special to The Eagle Camp Smith, Peekskill, Aug. 8 The 104th Hospital Company, commanded by Capt. Peter J. Sham-mon, was put through a short workout of infantry maneuvers today. Removing their packs on the drill field, the men received practical instruction in the art of pack rolling and making of adjustments. They then listened to a lecture on personal hygiene and first aid. Capt. Charles H. Judson, commander of the Signal Company, directed his men in setting up their field equipment. Several reel trucks built upon old motor chasses have been loaded with miles of telephone wire in preparation for the field maneuvers next week. The first formal ceremony of the camp tour was held last night, when the East and West Camp parade grounds saw the Brooklyn guardsmen passing in review. On the East parade ground the Signal Battalion paraded with the troops of the 27th Division Special Troops and the 102d Regiment of Engineers, while the borough medicos marched with the 102d Medical Regiment, under the command of Col. Lucius A. Salisbury. WIFE SUES W. A. PRIEST Reno, Nev Aug. 8 Suit for divorce was granted today to Alice M. Priest against William W. A. Priest of 2042 Bedford Ave., Brooklyn, on the ground of cruelty. The pair were married In Brooklyn July 19, 1928. The House of the Illinois Legis- j lature recently approved a Senate ; bill to make wives liable for alimony as well as their former husbands. MOSQUITOES.... rTrv We're Getting Real t . i v.

About Bridge By J. ROBERT WARBURG Oswald Jacoby and David. Burn-stine had a good laugh in telling about a hand which they played in an early round of the national challenge team-of-four contest, which they eventually won. The hand, we imagine, would have been entirely lacking in humor for the new champions except for the fact that they were so far in front at the time it was played that nothing could have overcome their lead. Jacoby Bids 3 Their opponents were vulnerable and bidding aggressively and seemed about to slide into an unbeatable (?) game contract at no trumps when Jacoby injected a bid of 2. Jacoby and Burnstine were not vulnerable. Jacoby had the South position and passed. The West opponent opened with a . call of 1. Burnstine passed and East bid 1. Jacoby: Pass. West: 2y. Burnstine: Pass. East: 3. Burnstine Rescuer With five spades to the Q-J-10 and nothing on the side, Jacoby took this occasion to stick in a bid of 3 A. West, who was about to bid 3 N.-T., doubled, and Burnstine bid 4. which was doubled and set four tricks. After the hand was played, and it was revealed that Burnstine, who sat over the potential 3 N.-T. bidder with a six-card club suit headed by A-K-Q-J and would have been on the lead, Jacoby said, "I Just stuck in that spade bid to let you know what to lead against a no-trump contract, Dave." "It sure would have been a swell lead, Oz-zie," replied Burnstine. "It would have given them 4 N.-T." The Hand Bumrtln.

Tomorrow the first hands of the championship contest between Ja-coby-Bumstine-Schenkcn-Frcy and Von Zedtwitz - Fry - Watson-Hymes will be illustrated, as well as an authentic record of the actual bidding which took place. The match was one of the closest ever played in a championship test. The winners scored a net plus of 2.690 against 2,390 for the losers in 48 hands. At. the half-way mark, when a recess was called, only 20 points separated the teams. Miss Frances Felin, of Philadelphia, Pa., believed the only woman engaged in submarine exploration, is an assistant of Dr. William Beebe, not descientist. I LIKE ICED COFFEE, BUT NOT AT NIGHT If coffee at night robs you of sleep, change to Saoka Coffee! Sanka Coffee is a delicious bleod of fine coffees with 97 of the caffein removed! And it's the caffein in coffee thai causes sleeplessness and jittery nerves. Your grocer sells Saoka Coffee with a satisfaction -or-money -back guarantee.

Sometimes they have brims and sometimes they are toques with flapping, upstanding ears; sometimes they are boys' caps, visor and all But there are so many varieties that it looks as though finding a hat to suit the individual face and figure is going to be, for once, a simple matter. Only soft, pliable materials are used. Velvet is in the lead, and after it come wool crepe, tweed, suede satin, antelope velour and hatter's plush. Belting ribbon is used for bands and bows and there are sometimes ornaments of strass or brilliants. The preferred trimming Is of feathers brushes, pompon and aigrette effects. Burnt peacock, burnt ostrich and burnt goose are used and duck quills and other barnyard feathers. Monkey fur is used in imitation of bird of paradise feathers. j ... r rZ: : vJKT- " : The ears have it in the hat in the oval, which has ears front and back and is made of "kitten's ear" velvet as w e 1 1.

Children Give To Send Others Awayvto Camps Aunt Jean's Fresh Air Fund iNeedg Still More to Con-tinue the Work Children continue to help children as evidenced by little sums of money donated toward Aunt Jean's Fresh Air Fund. A group of small children who attend Public School 109 in Queens Village, had a little play and collected $1 which they mailed to Aunt Jean. Another group of little folks at Hotel Cedarshore put on a performance and raised $2 for Aunt Jean's Fresh Air Fund. Among those who took part were Webb Nash Morrison, Jimmy Palmer, Bobbie Mirau, Richard Eckler, Henry Ottman, Joan Freiman, Louise Eckler and Patricia Morrison. The play was "The Three Little Bears' and a scries of tableaux. A friend donated $1 and another one came from "C. H. A." on 77th St., Brooklyn. We also acknowledge one doltar from Mrs. A. H.

Their excitement runs high as they look forward to two weeks at Plattsburg, N. Y. A group of boys returned yesterday from Rhinebeck, N. Y where they have had a glorious vacation at a large camp where an old-fashioned swimmin' hole has been constructed in a stream that flows through the camp propert). Only a few weeks of vacation days remain before the school houses open their doors. We have a few more boys and girls waiting to go away. We hope to be able to place them all so that they will return able to take up the work that lies before them this Winter.

It Is an antiseptic and anti-acid. It also has an abrasive effect when rubbed on the skin that Is stimulating. Salt solutions are helpful In neutralizing perspiration odors for the time being, but they do nbt suppress. The virtues of salt as a dentrifice and, in solution, as a mouth wash are or should be familiar to every one. One might say without exaggeration that salt Is useful from top to toe. Its abrasive and antiseptic action combats dandruff when it is massaged Into the scalp before a shampoo. The salt must, of course, be washed out thoroughly, not left to dry on the hair. Complexions of the rough, oily type benefit by an occasional salt massage to stimulate and cleanse the skin. A salt rub Is especially good for sallow necks, as well as for the body as a whole. Sponging armpits with salt water will help keep them sweet. For Tired Feet Coming down to the feet, we find that salt rubs refresh and deodorize them when they are tired and hot. When giving salt rubs the skin should first be moistened with water. Rub the dry salt on the wet surface, then rinse off thoroughly In fresh water. Salt may be used in combination with other simple ingredients to make effective beauty aids. For bleaching yellow streaks' in whitii hair mix salt with a little hydrogen peroxide and spread it on the discolored strands. After five or ten minutes rinse off the mixture and give a blue rinse.
