Girls Of That 'Uncertain Age'
Get Life's Answers Early
ONCE a month the teen-age girli of Bethlehem, Pa., gather in the
high-school auditorium "to find out." The dtpors arc loeked; not
• boy is in sight.
Life grows more pleasant, living more gracious liccausc of these
meetings; for here the girls unburden their minds of questions they
would not ask even the most sympathetic mother-—questions of morals
Tho Bethlehem Girls' Council
einie into being three years ago. A
group of enlightened women heard
of* plan dealing with the problems
ot liigh-school girls and set about
puling it into effect. They succeeded
g ell that tho National Council of
Women now has adopted the Beth-
lehem Plan and stand ready to spon-
aor girls' councils all over the
Tho plan is simply this: to let the
iris teach themselves, rather than
ie lectured to, through their own
dramatizations of playlets of morals |)usjness clusses, usunfiv "revive
and manners. There is a question- j for ,cnior Kirls Famoyus uome|
box into which the girls drop any | physicians lecture on hygiene nni
questions they choose. They do not | health; then the girls hand in un
questions already successfully an-
How should you handle a boy who
tries to get fresh?
Should you leave a boy when ho
has had too much to drink?
What do you think about going on
How do YOU rate at a dance?
Is it right, when you have gnne
out with a boy a few times, to lot
him kiss you good-night?
In addition to these dramatiza-
tions, there are personal-appearance
clinics and pro-marriage and pro-
lecture on hygiene and
sign their names. From these ques
tions the monthly plays are chosen.
Members of the women's committee
prepare a rough script and turn it
over to the girls for polishing. Teen-
age language and atmosphere, of
course, are employed.
Helen Welshimor, wh) was sent
to Bethlehem by Good Housekeep-
ing to make a first-hand study of
tho plan, relates her impressions in
an article called "The Questions
They Ask" in the April issue. She
reports that nil of Bethlehem agrees
tho plan is "the best thing thai ever
Tho playlets range in theme any-
where from the problems of smok-
ing, drinking and petting to how to
ncquire charm, poise and personal-
ity. The following nro a few of the
signed, written questions — the
frankest sort of questions—which
the lecturer answers in equally
Thanks to the Bethlehem Plan,
girls of that "uncertain age" are
going to have an easier time of it.
They will be able to meet the world
with greater assurance, knowing
that what they have been taught
will help make them better wives,
better mothers and belter iitiz?ns.
The National Council of Women
is going to act as a dealing house
for communities throughout I he
country, providing them at cost with
detailed outlines of the l! •thlch'-m
Plan. The National Council of
Women, Inc. may be reschcd at
International Building. Hockefiller
Center. New York City.

The wind or sand storm which
came more than a week back did
very little damage to Armstrong
County wheat as a whole. Some
say we did not have a 5 per cent
damage taking from one side of
the county to the other.
Anyway, wheat is promising much
at this time and an average of 20
bushels to the acre and one dollar
a bushel will mean much to Arm-
strong County wheat growers. Here
is hoping that we have the 20
bushels per acre as well as $1.00
a bushel when the wheat goes on
the market. SELAH,

WET WASH PRICE
Make us prove our Price is lower
At our iow price of 4c per pound for Wet Wash we can do your
laundry cheaper than you can do it at home, and we will be
glad to prove it. The actual cost of materials you can purchase
is more than 4c per pound—to say nothing of the cost of your
investment and the tune and worry of operating it.
We urge you to investigate the relative cists or doing your
laundry at home and of sending it to our modern plant. You
already know we can do it better. We can f.iso prove that we
can do it cheaper.
