All those gloomy predictions to the (effect that thcfe weren't going Id be enough men* to go liround In the postwar world weren't based on fatit, According to Dr. H6pe T. Eldrl- dge of the U. S. Bureau of Census, the war did reduce.the ratio of men to women in this country, but there ar6 still p'lenty of men in the marriage market. There was an excess of 3<700,000 marriageable men In 1&40, .War re duced the number by 300,000. So marriageable men arc still in the surplus commodity class, and not among the country's scarce products. You don't-have to grab a husband the first chance you get, without wondering Whether or noi he is a bargairi->-tho way you buy nylons. You can still shop around look over the market, and lake your time Until you have made a real "find." Nor do you have to give the men such a rush you scare them to death, the way many of you di< when servicemen first started com ing back from overseas.

And Val is mad at Cecily because she took Stevie's pin in the first place. XIII Another new experience was awaiting Cecily at Delia's.

"Thank you, Mrs. Halhday, for making your stand so clear in this matter. I had : hoped we could cooperate with each other but I see I shall; have 'to handle the situation-alone.. And I am very thankful that Cecily did-give Steve back his pin. I am sure that her judgment is- more reliable than her mother's!" Her last remark of course, was intended to make Delia smart, but the information' about the pin was the thunderbolt. Delia was frantically telephoning me before the click, of the Ralston connection ceased reverberating. "I hope you're satisfied!" she railed, "Throwing that Marlin street brat at her every time she ash to, bother you with, but has ju?F-'t()ld me that he an daughter Have considered thom- selves i secretly engaged this semester." past Mrs Ralilon was in no position qven to guess what news she had given great Delia. good Let bers requested themselves.

"After all, they've been crazy about each other since they were ''babies;" •?. "I suppose we should have'been warned," Mrs.-Ralston agreed."But I never dreamed they were taking their friendship so seriously! We've never allowed Stevie to go steady with any one girl, 'but of course he has dated Cecily-'more'frequent- ly than anyone else " "And if he has," said Dplla, net tied, "it was because he asked her well in advance. Cecily has always been able to take her choice." — Mrs. Ralston was-no fool. She aught the hint of matters below lie surface. "Of course she has been popular, rtrs. Halliday," she said cautious- y.

"All this wile allc about killing Val if he doosn' eave Cecily alone convinces me norc than ever before that Stevi s still an adolescent at 19!" s. "I don't know why," said Bella, pinning things out so that she night savor them to the full. "Older men fight when someone tries o cut in on their women." She had used the last word 1 maliciously. 'It's quite natural," "It may be natural, Mrs. Ralston conceded icily,"but you'd feel differently, Mrs. Hajlida". if i were your son who ; was threaten- ng another boy.

What shall I tell her when I write Children should be put to bed at the regular time in hot weather, for the average boy or girl does not develbp heat insomnia. Sumrher- lime is playtime for children, and they arc so Ured at' night lhat even a bed in a hot room is welcome. , Sick children, especially those with fevers, should be bedded in a cool place. If there is an electric fan In the room, it should not bo allowed to blow over tho patient, Plenty of water and cool sponges help to keep the patient comfortable. All children need a certain amount of bed-covering, even irt'hol weather. When they arc uncovered they become rcslless, for their bodies cool off more rapidly than do Ihose of adults. Some children become so accustomed to sleeping under a lighl cover that they wjll not go lo sleep without it. Children develop heal exhaustion more readily than adults do, especially when they are tired and have' not had 'enough \Vater to, drink. Children who arc not well should be kept indoors out of the sun in hot weather. Insomnia Is Mental Hoi weather insomnia in adults is largely psychological. The most common cause of insomnia at any time is fear of not being able to sleep, Adults who do hard work during hot weather have no difficulty sleeping, while those who spend most of the day complaining about the heat suffer from insomnia. _ Sleeping pills are not called for in insomnia unless it is a complication of a nervous condition, in which case the sleeping medicine should be prescribed by a physician and given to the patient by an attendant. Nervous, distraught individuals who carry their own sleeping medicine with them may take an overdose when they discover that the regular amount was not effective. The bedroom should be closed and the shades should be drawn during the day Open the windows during the evening, and the room will then be more comfortable for and drinks.
