JUST WHO DOES GEORGE PEPPARD THINK HE IS, ANYHOW??? (That was the question I directed toward Glenn one evening last week— a question brought on after I read quite an article written by this man.) Could be, you know all about him . . . But,in case you don't, then let me explain that George Peppard is thirty years old . . . he is tall . . . blond . . . handsome—and he is an excellent actor . . . (That is what Glenn said—and then, in answer to a straight glance from me, he also said "Don't give me that I'll bet-he-is-look, either". . . Naturally, there have been many times when I have made a different reply to that comment on my glance . . . But. he couldn't have made it at a better time because it fit right in with what I wanted to say about this Peppard guy. So I said it . . . And, what I said was this ... I think Mr. Peppard has a lot of nerve to say that American women don't know the art of talking with their eyes ... I also said that, obviously, he is a bachelor since any married man knows that a wife can eloquently speak with her eyes ... As a matter of fact, I'm confident that more than one says things with hoi eyes that she would ncvei think of saying with her lips. For example: What, husband ever fails to read a glance lev clod at him by a wife when- for the tenth time—he starts to tell a joke that really wasn't too funny the first time around??? What husband has ever failed to translate a glance that plainly says he had bettor not make i one more trip back to where I the glasses are clinking ... or The wedding date has been set for January 12.

There will be a dollar gift exchange. Sigma Alpha Mu social fraternity. (Dclo Photo Oral'O f\nd, in case he defies a wife and makes it to the blonde's side, then what husband ever had a moment's trouble trans­ lating the messages flashed at him by the fircy glance shot, from across the room ... It is the one which, boiled down to its more refined terms, gives a promise of how the conversation will go once they have returned home. Then, too, there is the glance directed from a wife to a husband which he knows by heart (It is the one which—when they arc joined by some of HIS boring friends — plainly says: "I'll give you just five minutes to get me out of here and away from these creatures.") And, by that same token, a husband never has one bit of trouble reading a glance from his wife which informs him that he had better be nice to a certain group—OR ELSE. So, now you know why I was a bit affronted at this Mr. Peppard's idea that American women cannot talk with their eyes . . . Along with all other wives, I can tell him that we are, without, exception, EX PERTS in this field. However, I must not claim that my eye language is always correctly interpreted . . . After all, there was a time—long ago and far away—when I was having a wonderful time . . . Then, for no apparent reason, 1 found Glenn at my elbow with his coat and mine over his arm—and before I could got my bearings, we were out in our car and headed along the highway for home. Well, I was so provoked that I sulked for about, three blocks . . . Then, I demanded to know just why he had to ruin a perfectly grand evening for me. I'll bet you'd like to know why he did, too . . . So, I'll tell you . . . Me happened to glance in my direction just as I was seized with an unexpected twitching of the eye lid . . . You guessed it, he thought 1 was talking with my eyes—and, he thought I was telling him it was time for us to clear out . . . Since then, when I'm having a grand and glorious time, I'm mighty careful not to give him so much as a brief side-glance. J J. W. Sanders, Dist. Governor, To Visit Mt. V. Rotary Club James W.

Dear Kathy: My boy friend and I broke up about a month ago. lie is dating other girls and it breaks my heart to see them together. I've tried dating other hoys but I just don't feel the same about them. It's serious to say you're in love and I don't, believe I am. Fifteen is an early age to think seriously but I can't forget him no matter how hard 1 try. -Can it be love?—Broken-hearted. Dear Broken - II e a r I e d: Throughout our lives, whenever wo lose something familiar or leave a familiar place, we feel regret. Separating from people we're fond of is a bigger emotional tug. You'd be less than human if you weren't sad but don't mistake loneliness for love. Purposely plan to keep yourself so busy that you haven't time for anything except looking forward to what comes next. It's the only way I know to make yesterday's love just one of a stream of memories rather than today's heartbreak. There's always a chance he'll get lonesome for you, but don't keep hoping or you'll hang onto that broken heart for a long, long time.

DEAR POLLY—Tho reader's suggestion of making a Thread Tree reminded me of a sewing plaque my mother-in-law gave me as a bride 22 years ago. Use piece of I inch by 12 incho board, about 15 inches long. Sand the ends and rough spots. Drive in two rows of finishing nails, properly spaced to accommodate spools of thread. In the remaining space arrange the following: a cup hook at each end for scissors and a tape measure, a small cork to slip a thimble on. and a small pincushion. Do not add the pincushion until you have painted the board. Tack a strip of heavy ribbon on the top edges of tho board so it can hang on tho wall. * I pur a coat hook in the back of my closet and on it I hang all the empty coat hankers. They do not clutter up the l'od and a hanger is always ready without having to rummage around for one.-MRS. II. L. McA. GIRLS—The sewing plaque would be a nlcv Christmas gift idea—different and not expensive. Sorry, girls, it Is Impossible to return hints to you that we cannot publish. -POLLY. DEAR POLLY — When light switches are taken off the wall to be painted, insert tho screws (which fasten them to the wall) into holes punched in the end of a paper cup or a small box.

Who ever heard of a working woman playing bridge in the afternoon? 2 p.m.: Yoit think it would be nice to take a short nap before the children get home from school. Forget it—that's entirely out of the question. 3:30 p.m.: The children rush in from school yelling "Mom" the minute they come through the door. As you listen to their excited accounts of the day's happenings — just remember that if you had a job you wouldn't be there to greet them when they came bursting through tho door. 5p.m.: The experiment is ov« er and you can do as you please. When your husband gets home and asks, in the way of husbands, "Well, what have you been doing today?" why not tell him you've been figuring out whether or not it would be more fun to be a working woman than a full-time housekeeper and you've decided you like the job you have.
