Teens' Broomstick Party
Shrill the wind and wild the night; Spooks go prowling, black cats fight; So set your spooky fears aside And join us on a Broomstick Ride! BY RUTH H. BRENT This party should be planned and carried out by the teen-agers themselves—even to cooking the supper. Mother should stay in the background. Place: A rumpus room or good-sized living room. Of course, a cabin in the woods would also be ideal, as would the municipal recreation rooms set up by your park service.

Ricochet Romance
TEENS OF OUR TIMES BY HELENE WRIGHT No, we're not going to say what practically everyone always says about rebound romances — that they're unwise, unsafe, and should be avoided. We think they can be a very good thing indeed if one important fact is kept in mind: "Rebound" should be recognized for what it is, a reaction to another emotional situation. As long as yon don't fool yourself into taking a rebound romance too seriously, why shouldn't you enjoy whatever consolations there may be for your broken heart?

THE MODERN RICE
One change any meat-and-gravy man will like! Any woman can cook it fluffy every time In your heart you know it. You married a meat-and-gravy man who likes substantial meals and plain cooking. (And your children take after him.) So tonight you're going to serve up some savory pot roast, plump pork chops, or a steak (if it's the day after payday) and go heavy on the gravy.

Give an Old West Chuck-Wagon Party
"Go West" Invitations Have your party in the wide-open spaces of your own back yard, with all the Western atmosphere you can muster. Even the invitations can have a "Go West" appeal for 7- to 11-year-olds if they're made this way: Paste brown wrapping paper onto thin cardboard; from it cut out a wagon like that above. From plain cardboard, cut out a wheel; sew it to the wagon, using a button as a hub. At the opposite end of the wagon, punch a hole; run yarn or twine through the hole; then tie it in place. On the wagon, write the rhyme, place and time of party, etc.

"What! No Kitchen Telephone?"
Of all things, Mr. Bridegroom! Surely you don't expect that lovely new bride to get along without a telephone in the kitchen!

And there's nothing that makes life so much easier as telephones around the home.

Give a Saucy Pirate Party
Treasure-Map Invitations There's hardly a lad whose heart doesn't beat fast at the very thought of pirates and buried treasure.

Don't let Drying Skin push you into "middle-age"
You may not feel "matronly"... but is dry skin making you look it? To a woman whose husband is starting to call her "mother" It's just a little habit that husbands often slip into—loving, maybe—but dangerous. Because, if you are spending more and more time on the children and neglecting yourself —the attractive girl your husband married—remember this: These are the very years when you can either grow lovelier—or just older!

"There She Was Waiting at the Church!"
There she was waiting at the church . . . because the cutest boy of the neighborhood playing "groom" to her "bride" walked out on her . . . and told her why. Lucky little Edna—to learn so young what some people never realize at all —that halitosis (unpleasant breath) is a fault not easy to pardon. It was a lesson she never forgot. Later in life, attractive and sought-after, Listerine Antiseptic was a "must" before every date.
