K. Answer: Of course, I can't ensure anything, but perhaps this Rhyme- o-Eram will reach the one for whom it is intended: Use Your U's. Now. honestly, believe you me, I hate to be insistent, But can't you see that we must be A trifle more consistent? If we say FEW, for pity's sake, Why "noo 1 for NEW, please tell me? And "doo" for DUE, another break That never fails to quell me? If PEWS is "pyooz," then NEWS is "nyooz," Unless I miss my guess, sir. If HUES is "hyooz," why "dooz" for DUES? I'm stumped. I must confess, sir. One should not use the "oo" of OOZE In STUDIO, nor DUKE, sir. That you refuse to use your U's, Musi earn my stern rebuke, sir. Tell any beauty she's a cootie; Whee! She'll slap your face, sir. In line of duty, call her CUTIE; She'll seek your embrace, sir. In feud and mute, and nude and lute. The "U" of USE should blend, sir. Not "food" nor "moot," nor "nood" nor "loot." So let this misuse end, sir. Press Portraits A noted designer says women's hats will not be so "funny" this season.
