Good Roads And Education
In a report made lo the Minister
ol Education ior Saskatchewan, Mr.
D. S. McCanncl, chief attendance
officer iu tlie province, to whom is
entrusted the administration of tlic
Compulsory School Attendance Act,
s>ays, in part, as among the reasons
assigned for thc absence of children
from rural schools: "Impassable
roads, but this is a condition which
will improve as the province grows
In previous issues, the writer of
this column has dwelt upon thc importance and necessity of good roads
in these western provinces, and also
upon thc absolute necessity that
farm boys and giils should be given
the best possible education and kept
in school as long ~as possible. In
this article wc hope to make clcai
thc bearing which the provision of
good roads has upon the succcssf.:l
carrying out of a better schools policy and a higher average attendance
at school.
There are four main groups tinder
which evcry problem treated as \>c-
culiar to rural communities! are or
can bc properly grouped:
First: Greater production or moie
intensive farming, which is priniaiily
a question of more population on tli:
Second: Proper educational facil'.
tics for the boys and girls, or provision for a high school education
without forcing parents to lea\ e w^
farm at the period of thcir greatest
production in order to give their
children an even start with the town
boy and girl in educational equipment.
Third: Proper social and amusement facilities for" the entire family
as a primar.v nn_,ms of keeping thcm
contented with lifc on  the farm.
Fourth: Thc development of a
community spirit, hearty co-operation in a social and economic way,
as the best means for guaranteeing
the prosperity and contentment of
Thus, roughly, do we group ' thc
various topics which concern tiie relations of the people one with another, as distinguished from those
which deal wilh those things that
concern the individual farmer, such

.Now analyse this proposition: The
{dilution of all these problems, thc
���*nc final answer to them, thc one
thing that will lay thc foundation that
.will make them possible, and' leaves
but details in connection .with each
to be arranged, but without which
success cannot bc achieved, is.a'pass-
able, system of all-thc-ycar s good
In some of our more thickly populated districts in thc West,- a consolidated school would-mean a vast
improvement over several small district schools. > It would bc a better
school in every way, .and provision
for- high school training would be
- possible. But without .,--.. roads for
thc conveyance of pupils liic consolidated school and rural high school is
impracticable, and many of such"
schools established in thc -United
Slates have been abandoned solely
because of the impossibility of-transporting the school" children .over the
existing roads.
But, it is said, it will take money
to build roads. Certainly it will, and
Jots of it. But the city dweller cannot- live jn an eight or ten-room
house with "electric lights, hot water
and   other  modern   conveniences   for
the same outlay that hc can live in
a cave. Hc pays for those conveniences and he finds that it pays him
to pay for them. So with good
roads���thcy will more lhan pay for
Here in Western Canada we arc
soi..��..��vnat inclined to look upon thc
Province of Quebec as backward and
slow because we arc not fully informed of what is transpiring there.
Within the past fifteen years Quebec
has been forging ahead in general
agriculture, dairying and livestock
raising faster than Ontario, and in
some respects more rapidly and substantially than these Western Provinces. Industrially and commercially it is going ahead by leaps and
bounds, and a complete transformation is  taking place educationally.
What is the basis for ihis development in Quebec? F.vcryonc who has
studied il has but one answer: Good
roads. 'The IYo\iuce of Quebec has
now thc hest roads in thc Dominion,
as far as it has gone, ami il means to
continue iinlil every farmer can get
his goods to market, his children to
school, and his family to church,
uilhout a breakdown or being mived.
Some ycars ago thc Provincial
Government asked for authority lo
spend $20,000,000 on roads. Some
people who think thc French-Canadian habitant is penuuous and un-
progrcssive mif.t give some thought
to lhc fact lhat thcy enthusiastically
gave thc necessary authority. That
$20,000,000 has been spent, and Quebec now leads the Dominion in good
roads. Two or three months ago the
Government appealed to the people
for a ncw mandate to keep on spending millions on good roads, the result being that a majoiny of Government siipporieis were lclurncd by

Finding1 Another Pompeii
Newly Discovered City Will Eventually Prove Actually Richer
During thc war, archaeological excavations wcrc continued al thc Italian colony of Cyrenaica, on the north
African coast, and now comes thc
news that what has been found already promise? the uncovering of another ancient city as important as
Pompeii. Once upon a timc thc spot
was a Greek C0I0113', with the civilization of Greece transplanted lo the
soil of Africa. The work has been
carried on during the war under the
supervision of Prof. Lucio Mariani,
director of the archaeological services
of the Ministry of thc Colonies, aud
thc prediction is now made that the
newly discovered city" will eventually
prove actually richer than Pompeii in
its evidences of a past civilization.
Here havc been found already statues
of the Graces, a Hermes, an" Eros, an
Alexander thc Great, and most impressive of all, thc Aphrodite of
Cyrcne, which is said by certain connoisseurs to bc a fair rival in beauty
lo thc Venus of Milo ancl thc Venus
of Cnidus. The discoveries havc cx-
Icndcd* over a good many ycars. It
may bc. added,-however, as an illustration of the modified joys of archaeology, and thc introduction of a ncw
mystery into thc history of art, that
the Aphrodite of Cyrenc lacks both
head and arms. Thc world may wonder what she looked like as well as
what she' was supposed lo bc doing.
The Prince Invests In
War Savings Stamps
Delighted   to Find   Stamps on Sale
Same as in England . j
Not the least amongst the many

Prince of Wales during his brief stay
in Ottawa was to invest in a complete certificate of War 'Savings
Stamps. His Royal Highness was

to those, that arc so popular in England, ll was his intention lo call at
mc post office and make his purchase

dining his stroll around Ottawa incognito, but pressure of other engagements prevented this being done.
Thc stamps wcrc therefore sent to
hiin at Government House, aud the
sale, duly made in cash by the secretary of thc National War Savings
Committee. The Prince was quite
���willing lhat his investment should bc
madc known, ami kindly sent the following letter, with permission lo publish it, lo Sir Herbert 13. Ames, chairman of the. National War Savings
Government   House, "Ottawa.

Common Bond of Sympathy
Russia Is Music
In spile of the wide gap between
the radicalism of the "left wing" and
the ullia-conscrvatism of the "right
wing," there is one common '^oiid of
sympathy in Russia, and that is in
music. In Kussia everybody sings,
and the songs of the simplest peasant are dear to the tu ^,

was in Vladivostok at lhe lieigl.it of
thc revolutionary movement saw a
troop of Kolchak's men who were
singing a Russian song as thcy
marched down a mountain pass, being passed by a band of Bolshcviki,
who took up the air ~and" carried it
along enthusiastically as they proceeded in the opposite direction. Tlic
Bolshcviki felt that the song belonged to thcm quite as much as to the

Hamilton Tells How It Is Done
��� -*,.
In speaking of the ills from whicli
women suffer, Dr. Hamilton points
out that nine out of evcry ten women are  by nature inclined  to  hab-
' itual constipation. Harsh-purgatives
arc resorted to, which only intensify
thc trouble. Although_not generally
known, it is a constipated condition
of the bowels that,causes half the
sickness and tired weariness with
which all womankind is so familiar.
It was aftcr long years of study that
Dr. Hamilton - perfected the . pills
which have been of such .marvellous
benefit to women .the world over. In
his pills of Mandrake and Butternut
every sufferer will find an absolute
specific for constipation, sick headache and biliousness. It is safe to
"""say..that Dr. Hamilton's Pills bring
. better health and keep the system in
a~ more vigorous condition than any
other medicine ever discovered. At
all dealers, in 25c boxes. ���
under ordinary circumstances, but

behind a table with his back tp the

Repose and -the inky mixture of
chicory and some few beans of- the
order Rubiaccoc contributed to clear
Ruggles's bewildered brain. With
clearer thought came also a certain
amount of better cheer, for RugglcS,
as has, been' several times said, was a
born optimist. Aftcr all, the situation was not so hopeless. Darthea
was an artisl and very young, and
for both reasons-infused with more
than her due allowance of romance.
He had conic spinning into her life
like a plumed knight-errant and shc
had endowed him with a station
whicli hc did not possess.,
Although conscious of a certain
tender sentiment for Darthea, Ruggles was by no mcans in love with
her, nor did he deceive himself in
this respect. But shc was thc first
girl friend of her class  that thc boy
and Rugglcs wondered whether perhaps he should have given him a
tip. Soniev minutes passed, and thcy
were not restful ones -to Rugglcs,
who was beginning to repent him of
his temerity. Then the door to an
adjoining"room opened, and Ruth
entered. Ruggles could not have told
to his dying day what she wore. If
it had been a bathing peignoir, it is
probable that he would not havc observed the fact.
It may have been that Ruth had
second sight and divined that Ruggles had,some real and pressing need
of her, or perhaps it was merely her
natural graciousness of- manner. At
any rate, thc instant she entered, all
of Ruggles's embarrassment vanished, and as thcir eyes met, he fell that
he had made no mistake in coining
to her.. x . V.
"How do you do, Mr. Rugglcs?"
said Ruth, and offered him her firm
little hand. "I'm very glad to sec
you.   Won't you sit down?"
Ruth was her father's own daughter, her brother's own sister, and no
had, ever possessed, and this  friend-j employee of the Walkeasy Company

no need for mc to bother you any
longer. Maybe you're right. After

voice caught in his^ throat and hc
walked toward the door, which was
rather blurred and indistinct. Darthca followed him, straight and still
and white as an Easter lily.
Hc opened thc, door of the ante
chamber, went out���and turned.
"Good-bye," hc said.
"Good-bye," Darthea answered,
her hand on the knob to close thc
door behind him.
-   "Good-bye," Ruggles repeated.    "I
won't bother you again."
A sudden mania seized him. He
took Darthea's hand, as it rested on
lhe knob of the door, and raised it to
his lips. Darthea was loo startled
to withdraw it. v
"Good-bye,"     Rugglcs      muttered.
"  "Good-bye,  Darthca���-"    It  was   the
first lime that he had ever called her
"Miss Wcstbrooke,    please,"    said
^Darthca, snatching away her hand.
-.   "Sure," Rugglcs replied.   "I forgot.
.Good-bye, Miss    Westbrookc.    And
say, "Darthca," hc added desperately,
for  shc  had  stepped  back and was
closing    the- door, "there's just one
thing morc'I want to tell you���" He
tried to get a farewell glimpse of her,
but  Darthea  was  a shimmering,  uncertain vision.
"' - -You'll prob.ably-mc.et lots of-richer
men than mc," said Rugglcs, speaking fast and rather thickly, "but
you'll never meet one that thinks
more of you. than I do. "I don't ask
anything of you, but if ever you need
a good friend���-
"Thank you, Mr. Rugglcs," said
Darthea, in her most limpid ���v6icc.
"You're awfully kind, I'm sure. Goodbye."
.And    the door    closed gently
Ruggles's face.
Rugglcs went out into thc street
hot of heart and blurred as to his
eyes. But these conditions wcrc as
nothing compared to _thc mysfifica
tion .of his mind. . No doubt he felt
rather like a dog whieh has been
caught and whipped without in-the
least - Understanding why (perhaps
because the cat had misbehaved during the wight). Rugglcs had no
knowledge of any .cat, nor did he,1 as
many men might havc done, consider
Darthea as of this class of supreme
egoists. He did not blame Darthca;
he did not blame anybody. Hc was
merely very puzzled and very sad.
.Wandering aimlessly, he crossed
thc Gardens and came out on the
Boulevard Saint-Michel, then turned
in the direction of thc river, prob
ably following the line of least rc
sistance and because it was easier to
walk downhill than on the level. Men
are apt to feel that -way aftcr such
au experience as that of Ruggles. He
was tired, too, having walked several
miles in the course of the morning,
which would not havc mattered much

ship had been very sweet and dear
to him; more so, perhaps, than if it
had been colored with passion. Hc
was very""fond of her, and deeply, admired and respected her, and it cut
him deeply, not only in his pride, but
in his heart, that she could think him
capable of cheap deception. He hoped, however, that on reflection she
would relent, in which case hc was
quite ready and willing to iorgive her
and bc readmitted lo her friendship.
There was much that was doglike in
Ruggles's devotion.
Meanwhile, however, hc was cheered by thc reflection that there still
remained to him two stable" quantities on which to nail his worldly
faith���the Downings and thc Walk-
easy Shoe Company. Hc worshipped both and felt that neither could
ever betray his confidence. Had Dick
Downing been accessible, the chances arc that Ruggles would have
found the courage do go straight lo
him in his perplexity, for hc felt a
dire need of friendly counsel after
Darthea's apostasy. But hc had
heard that Dick had returned to

It was still, however, with a very
heavy heart that Ruggles crossed the

purposed to spend thc rest of the
sunny afternoon in thc sum/ of German verbs. Hc had nearly reached
the Carlton when he saw a big limousine draw up before the door ancl
an exquisitely gowned girl, followed
by an. elderly woman, descend and
enter the hotel. Though still at some
distance, Ruggles's quick eyes had
recognized the girl at the very fii jt
glance. 11 was none other than Ruth
A -sudden icsolulion, the daring or
which caused Ruggles's healthy
young heart to whirr like a starling
taxicab, fetched him up "all standing," as sailors say. Here, sent perhaps by Providence, was his friend in
need. Less than an hour ago lie had
been vaunting thc loyalty of the
Downing family to their great army
of vassals. Hc would put this loyally to the lest. He would call upon
Ruth, explain his trouble���which was
aftcr all more or less her own doing
in having fired his heart with ambition���and demand her sympathy and
advice. -   _ ���
There was nothing, presumptuous
about this swift decision on thc boy's
part. Hc felt honestly that it was
right, and there was about it somc-
thing-rathcr fine and "belonging'to a
feudal age. His mother and father
before him had lived and labored and
died in thc service of the company,
which is to say, in thc service of the
Downing family. He himself was
giving the best of his brain and body,
the best of his youth, to thc same service. Now, as a result of this fidelity, he was more unhappy than -he
could remember ever to havc been,
and he' could sec no reason why he
should not turn to a Downing for
aid in his perplexity. Thc responsibilities of licgedom .should work both
Glancing at thc reflection of himself in the plate-glass window of an

quite satisfied with his prcscntabil-

modest shoe clerk. Hc entered the
fashionable hotel with an air of assurance which he was far from feeling, and sent up his. card to Miss
Downing���his social card, which was
inscribed simply "Mr. Richard P.

that card, because two-thirds of it
were identical with Richard P. Downing, junior and senior.
The boy returned presently to say
that Miss Downing would receive
Mr. Rugglcs in the salon of her suite.
Rugglcs mounted in thc lift, glancing
at himself in thc mirror and pushing back a long lock of wavy yellow
hair, which was slightly damp. He
was ushered into a salon prettily
furnished in Louis XV. style, and

Province Seeks Own Powers
British Columbia Wants Jurisdiction
to  Deal     With Profiteering v
Vancouver. ��� Thc mayors and
reeves of 27 British Columbia municipalities met here, wilh Hon. J. W.
DcB. Farris, attorney-general, lo discuss mcasuics for relieving thc cost
of living, and adopted a resolution
suggesting thc appointment of a provincial board of commerce for British
Columbia, with full judiciary and administrative powers, lo'bc appointed
and administered by the fcdcral government.
It was argued that the , existing
board of commerce, working from
Ottawa, was too distant lo bc fully,
effective on thc Pacific Coast, and the
feeling ^was , lhat _this federal board
should bc supplcmcncd by a~-body
with provincial jurisdiction, but with

Would Be Grateful to Holland if She
Refuses Extradition  of the
Former Kaiser
The Hague, Holland. ��� Thc
Deutsche Allgemeihc Zcitung some
timc ago wrote lhat the German
people would be grateful to Holland
if she adhered to the policy,of refusing the extradition of the former
Kaiser. A union of German officers,
the league of German sergeants, various women's leagues, and so foith,
asked the Dutch Government to refuse extradition, expressing much
gratitude if their request were conceded.
All. these movements give better
proof of sentiment than of tact, and,
as the llandclsblad points out, show
a misapprehension of the situation.
There can be no question of gchei-
osity or of thanks in this matter. If
Germany had reason to thank Holland, the entente would have reason
to reproach her with not having fulfilled  their wishes.-      But  the  whole
Holland adheres to right as she did during the whole war. At most Germany
may thank the Dutch law for being
what it is, and the entente may regret that it is not different.   -
The Nicuwc Rot'lcrchinischc. Cour-
anl, discussing the extradition question, points out that,-if thc court that
is to judge him is to bc formed by
the entente from- amongst their own
men, whatever guarantees lhc former
Kaiser is given, thc proceedings can
only end in his 'being found guilty.
If il could bc proved that those in
St. Petersburg or Paris who in 1914
had to decide for war were as guilty
as the defendant, and the London
judge recognized this, thc whole basis
for the peace treaty would lapse and
the peace treaty itself bc automatically condemned. Thc guilt of the
former Kaiser cannot bc judged
without fixing the responsibility for
the wai.

"Finest Act In The  War"
Marshal Foch Pays Tribute to Valor
of the Canadians
Marshal Foch never forgets, says
the London Evening News. Some
timc ago hc was presenting��� French
decorations to Canadian officcis of
thc famous First Canadian Division.
Hc discussed with them the second
Battle of \piLa,-.uia especially thc
Battle of St, Julian, where the Hun
first used gas, and where the Canadians held the line after thc troops
on thcir flanks had been suffocated
or retired.
Foch was in command of that por-.
tion of the front.at the lime. Hc told
the Canadian officers 'that had their
troops given way-nothing could have
stopped ~tirc~~Gcrniaris " ihafchihg"tb
Calais, and added: "I think the finest
act in thc war was the counter-attack
of thc 10th and 16th Battalions of
Canadians after thcir division had
been frightfully punished by thc German gas." This counter-attack so
amazed thc enemy, who counted jti
their gas demoralizing or 'killing thi"
Canadians, that thcy slowed down
thcir advance to the coast and Calais
was saved. That was in thc fateful
spring of 1915, but the great Marshal
of France remembered every detail of
thc long battle ancl thc actual Canadian battalions.

relation lo industrial efficiency and
thc lifc'of a nation cannot be overestimated, and everything possible

Monday, October 20. Sir William

when the provincialgencral elections

generally believed that thc members
of the government desire to havc

However, there arc conflicting interests, one of which is that the majority,
of temperance workers wish to keep

Grazing Laws to Be Changed, According to Interior Department News
Ottawa. ��� The Department of the
Interior has announced important
changes in the regulations regarding
grazing leases which arc of particular interest to, the West The drought
conditions which havc prevailed in
the southern portion of the prairie
provinces havc resulted in representations beiny madc to the department
by thc possessors of small herds of
from 50 to 500 cattle, for permission
to '''move to lands farther north where
better grazing facilities offer.
Changes havc been made in the grazing regulations to permit of this.
There arc largc aicas of land in these
nprtherl; prairie districts ; which, because of remoteness from settlement,
liability to frost, or swampy or gravelly character of the soil, arc not
adapted to agricultural production,
but which aic, nevertheless, ' quite
suitable for grazing purposes. The
Minister of thc Interior, Hon. Arthur
-.leighen, after careful consideration
oi'llic .representations made, decided
it would be prompting the best interests of this icgion as a whole if
ranchers .who wished to establish
themselves permanently upon such
areas and who have the proper qualifications, wcrc permitted to migrate
and settle there. In no case, -however, will this''arrangement lie allowed to li'tciieie with anj' promising
movement to settle farmers on lands
suitable  for agricultural purposes.
Under 'the present grazing regulations leases are limited to a term
not exceeding ten' years, and lo aii
area not largci than 12,000 acres and
in no case may"a^leasc be issued lo
other lhan a .-atish subject. With
these conditions in force it was demonstrated i;ua ranchers of the kind
desired would not move llich-^hcrds
and establish their homes in thc more
northern country, where climatic conditions '."we're 'such that they would' be
compelled to provide fodder for llic
winter mouths and to eiect corrals
and sheds for.: the protection of-tlicir

To Remain Until Another as . Good

"What is lo bc done with the

vicar, the Rev. T. Grey Collier, and
churchwardens. Thcy havc decided,
says "Diarist" in thc -Westminster
Gazette,   that  it  is  "to   remain  until
another as good or better, is present
cd to the church," whicli is, perhaps,
thc best way of stimulating local
generosity. Thc body of Captain
Fryatt lies near "thc Kaiser window," as it is called, which was erected by the ex-Emperor in memory of
the "German Legion" who died from
disease during the Walcheron Expedition in 1810, and were buried with
Britisii soldiers in the adjoining
churchyard. It forms thc large west

London.���The proposal to establish a permanent hostel for the bene

thc Canadian authorities here. Thc
opinion is prevalent that many of
these men and thcir wives who have
decided to remain in England will in
a couple of ycars or so be equally
anxious to return to ^Canada. One
authority says that at thc present
timc a certain class of demobilized
soldiers, who have been in England
during the past five ycais arc a bit
dazzled at the wages now being ���paid,
forgetting that thc cost of living is
steadily mounting. It is expected that

Our Returned Soldiers
Major F. A. Robertson addressed
a meeting in the Greenwood
Theatre on Thursday night explaining the work and scope of the
B. C. Returned Soldiers Commission. In the absence of Mayor
Gulley, Alderman Chas King took
the chair and stated that Major
Robertson was formerly with the
47th Battalion and fought in all
the battles of tbe Somme where he
lost an eye at the taking of Regina
Trench and afterwards had his leg
blown away at Passchendaele
Ridge. The chairman asked Major
Robertson to explain tho gratuity
question which seemed to be creating a great deal of misunderstanding. Major Robertson stated that
the G. W. V. A. were not asking
for an out and out gratuity of
82,000, but merely asked the government to appoint a commission
to see if a further gratuity could
not be given the returned soldiers
with a $2,000 basis on which to
work upon. All the G. W. V. A.
ask is for the government, to appoint a -commission to talk the
matter over, but this request having been refused the G. W. V. A.
are now going to assert themselves.
Dealing with the scope of the
B. C. Returned Soldiers Commission, Major Robertson said that if
there were any real cases of distress caused by sickness or fire or
other unavoidable accidents it was
the citizens duty to inform G. B.
Taylor, who is the agent for the
commission in this district, and he
would notify the head office and
assistance would immediately be
granted. -      -
The Major grew quite eloquent
when telling of the deeds
of the Canadian Corps in
France. He showed how the Canadians saved the coast town? at the
second battle .of Ypres when the
French army turned and fled but
the Canadian army stood firm
without any supports or reserves
to fall back upon. Then again it
was the Canadians who took the
highest point on the Somme after
it had been taken and loaFsevon
times by other of the allied armies.
Tbe Canadians were then moved
to the supposed impregnable Vimy
Ridge, where the French lost over
75,000 killed and more than 200,-
000 wounded, but the Canadians
took it at a jump and went five
miles beyond. He then explained
the taking of Passchendaele Ridge,
���the moBt bloody battle of the
whole war���but it was J^arshal!
Haig who commanded General
Currie to take the Ridge at all
costs. By this time the Corps had
won the admiration of all tho
allied armies and in -captured
documents the Germans had said
fehat the Canadians were the storm
troops. The battle of Hill 70 was
explained and of how the, Canadians were the spearhead in the
battle .of Amiens with the Australians on the left and French on
the' right. How the Canadians
fought almost . continuously for
three months afe ' Arras, Canal du
Nord, Cambrai-and firing the last
shot of. the war at "Mons. The
Canadians hold the proud distinction of never having IoBfc a position
once it had taken or of ever having
failed to take an objective.

Major Robertson for his very able
and instructive address.

How to Tell Age
Another Dry Vote
" 'A burnt child dreadB fihe
fire',", announced the.teacher during ihe lesson in proverbs. ''Now,
give me a sentence differing in
wording but meaning the same
thing." * ���       .
A grimy band - shot np from the
back of the claps, -
'.'"Please, teacher," came a email
\oice.   "A, washed  child:dreads
the water."-^Blighty. V
Among many ingenious schemes
for telling a persons age this is oho
of the easiest and best. Let the
person whose age is to be discovered do the figuring. Suppose, for
example, if it; ia a girl, that her
age is 15, and that she was born
in August. Let her put down the
number of tbe month in which she
was born and proceed as follows:"
Number of month - - _ 8
Multiply by 2    ' -     -:    - 10
Add 5 .   "   -   . -  '_--<,-   21
Multiply by 50 'y - '- . 1,050
Then add her age - - 1,065
Then snbstract 365, leaving 700
Then add 115 - ��� - 815
. She then announces the result,
815, , whereupon she may be informed that, her. age is 15, and
August, or tbe eighth month, is
the month of her birth.
Tbe two figures to the right in
the result will always indicate the
age, and the remaining figure or
figures the month the birthday
comes in.
This rale never fails for all ages
op to 100. For ages nnder 10 a
cipher will appear profixed in the
result, bnt no account is taken of
���Try it on yonr friendB.
A sure sign that yon don't know
much is to think that you know it

There was a picture in the papers recently of Enid Bennett,
- movie star, using the telephone. Miss Bennett is'afine actress,
and she surely knows how to use a telephone, but in this illustration she had her face., turned away from the transmitter.
Perhaps she was posing," but it might, have suggested to some
that her method was the proper one when telephoning.
When you telephone, talk directly into the instrument,
with your lips an inch or more from the transmitter. Then
you will have to talk in an ordinary tone and the person at
the other end Tyill be able to hear you distinctly.
