THE ART OF BEING FEMININE
Ask any boy what kind of girl he wants to marry
and invariably his answer will be, "A teal woman
one who is thoroughly feminine!"
Some girls think that appearance alone is the yard-
stick of feminity. But a girl can dress Like a valen-
line and still iaek true feminine appeal!
What is it, then, that the truly feminine girl has
that so appeals to boys?
She has a good sense of values. She doesn't judgt
a boy by the amount of money he spends on her, the
type of places he can afford to take her, She appre-
ciates the little things, the small courtesies and gal-
lantries, that he extends to her. A boy knows that
she likes him for himself, not the good times br
can give her.
She is never bored. She hasn't time to be bored
She's too busy doing things. She lives life fully and
completely, and she imparts her zeal for livinj
Others. That is why boys find dates with her so fas-
cinating and exciting.
She has glamour and sex-appeal. In her appear-
ance and in her mannerisms she is smooth and lovely
and feminine. There is a fresh, natural glow about
her that is far more attractive than seductive gowns
and exotic hair-dos. She knows that above all boys
admire daintiness in a girl. She is always neat and
well-groomed.
She is neither cynical nor sarcastic. She realizes
that boys don't like being "yessed" all the time, that
a quick, pert tongue can intrigue a boy. But she also
knows that a continual round of sarcasm and snappy
answers kills all femininity in a girl She enjoys a
friendly, witty argument with a boy, and she is al
ways ready to stick up for her ideals, but she steers
clear of quarrelsand she never nags..
She has respect for boys. She doesn't consider
herself intellectually superior to the boys she meets.
She doesn't think of all men as little boys who musr
be pampered and flattered. She lets a boy feel that
she is looking up to him, that she respects bis views
and opinions. She knows that you can learn some-
thing from every person you meet, that some boys
who can't express themselves well have hearts filled
with wisdom and charm.
She gets along with other girls. Boys admire her
because she is well-liked by girls. Her girl friends
know that she plays the game fairly that she isn't
guilty of gossip or cattiness or man-stealing. She
knows the meaning of true friendship.
She is completely natural. Her love of life and
people is genuine. She doesn't resort to artificial
poses or a line. She doesn't knock herself out to
make an
impression, nor does she try -to steal the
spotlight.
Her humor is gay, sparkling, and her
laughter is spontaneous. And boys sense instantly
that she is fun to be with.
She is warm and responsive. She doesn't place
herself on a pedestal and expect boys to treat her like
a goddess. Keeping a boy dangling or leading him
on isn't her idea of playing fair. And because she
treats boys with frankness and sincerity, shi
their respect and sincerity in return! Above all, she
is unafraid to show her true feelings toward a boy.
And her heart is always open to friendship and love.
These, then, are the qualities that make up the
truly feminine girl. How do you measure
up
to
them?
Remember, whatever your score, being femi-
nine is an art that every girl who wants to appeal
to boys can cultivate because she has the materia! to
work with right within herself.
YOUR MOST GIAMOROUS SELF
Such a pretty girl, Sally! Pretty face, pretty figure,
pretty mannersuntil she sits down. And then Sally
isn't pretty any more. And since Sally spends many
hours of her working and date life in a sitting
ges-
ture, it would behoove her to get wise to the do's
and don'ts about sitting. If you want to be at your
attractive best ail of the time, you'd do well to ob-
.-:.
sitting rules, too:
Choose a fairly high, straight-backed chair to sit
in when you're in a living morn zm\ wan! to be at
your br.-l
Yes, thll
low
easy
chair will be more
comfortable, but il will throw your body out of
alignment and into an unlovely slouch. Lower your-
self slowly into a chair. Don't fall into it as if you'd
taken your very last step. Falls aren't a b*t graceful,
Sit upl The lower part of your back should fit
;;.. tower part of the chair back. Don't put
your weight on your shoulders and neck. It will give
you an unbecoming round-shouldered look.
Sit forward! Your head and shoulders and upper
back should be slightly ahead of the lower back,
especially if you're being interviewed for a job. This
gives you an attitude of alertness and attention.
Cross your legs if you like, but cross them high
above the knee, so that the foot ef the crossed leg
can hang freely, toes pointed gracefully downward.
Don't cross your legs at the knee. When you do, the
calf of the crossed leg is pushed out of shape by the
leg under it, and the foot of the crossed leg points
outward at an awkward angle. Practice crossing your
legs before a mirror to achieve I graceful angle that
won't embarrass you.
If you don't cross your legs, either cross your
ankles, or see that both feet are together, side by
side. Nothing
is more awkward looking than a girl
silting with I.t
legs and feet wide apart, or with one
n a chair rung!
When you're silting at a table or in a booth, it's
i-o put one armand one, onlyon the
table -when
you've finished eating. But don't. put
bo(h arms on the table, and lean your weight
on
them. Your head proirudes ungracefully when you
do this, and the effect of flic prettiest hat or hair-do
is lost.
Don't cup your chin in your palm,
or lean your
head n it. Only
the mosi graceful women can do
this without distorting their facial contoui
ing awkward.
Before sitting down anywhere, stand

these fashion laws to heart:
i. Your legs R'ill appear longer when yen raise
the waistline of your clothes. The highm

legs and a high waistline by wearing a princess-IBS

illusion of more leg length. Your longer skirts will
look fashionable it" you wear high heels with them
and select stockings as dark or as light as your cos-
tume. Avoid anything that cuts your figure helnw
the waistline. Short jackets of the bolero type and
full-length coats should be your choice.
2. If your legs are too thin and have little more

When your legs and anklets are heavy, avoid
tight, straight skirts like poison, Don't wear shiny
stoikings. (Turn your stockings inside
