For all its cutting edge, there Is a great deal of wisdom in that statement. There Is no such thing as a 40-year-old girl and the woman who tries to remain a girl forever doesn't fool anyone but herself. By the time she has reached "40— if not before— a woman should faced the fact that she Is through with girlhood and that the way to make the most of herself Is to be as attractive a as she can be and leave being girlish RuUl M ||lett to • girls. Instead of clinging to a type of hair style and dress that were becoming to her In her twenties, she should figure out what Is appropriate and becoming to her as a woman of 40. Instead of thinking she can get by forever with being scatterbrained or inifficient, she should realize that a woman ought to be well organized and efficient, once she has passed that age when her faults will be over looked on the basis ol youth. Instead of living from day to day, the woman who has had her fortieth birthday ought to know what she wants and where she is going. Instead of competing with other women, the woman who Is approaching middle age ought to have learned the Importance of making friends with women Instead < of trying to outshine them. By age 40 a woman should have given up- any kittenish, cllnging- vine ways, and have become a responsible, self-reliant person. There's just no such thing as a 40-year-old girl—so there's no use for any woman to try to be one. At the Hospitals Blytheville Hospital Dismissed: Mrs. Esther Moore, Huffman. Mrs. A. J.
