contributes an article on the modern den as fol Eliminates All Fussiness Perhaps nowhere in the house or apartment is the modern room more appropriate than in the mans den The furniture built on plain lines eliminates all the fusainess to which men object and the absence of all but the very necessary draperies if any are used at all makes it a truly masculine creation Curtains are ot course more or

but it goes without saying that a room of this typo would naturally call for con cealed lights Naturally a bit of color spot like orange red or blue should be here and there The desk and the shelves for instance could carry a few bright spots of color and a iit of bright color could be introduced into the rug it desired Caro should however be exercised neither to de tract from the masculinity of the room nor to spoil its feeling of vital ity and spirit This reparations conference over In Paris will be a success If the Eur opean diplomats can figure out some way to make Uncle Sam pay for eve

Carefully By ALICE JUDSON PEALE Whats that says the toddler find having received what his moth er believes is an entire adequate ansvvcr repeats Whats that Again and again monotonously and relentlessly Whats that Whats that until adult patience Is exhausted and the young tormen tor is silenced sharply or snubbed out of existence Why does almost every child go thru a stage when he does

eventuation of uch calamities as going to bed But where the relationship be tween parents and child is sympa thetic the repeated question ia born of genuine curiosity a wish to un derstand The tiny child to whom 13 given an explanation in a sentence containing three or four new words asks his question over and over again in ordet that the meaning may sink in and that he may so familiarize himself with the new words as to be able to use them himself When the situation makes Its ob vious that the childs motive Is one of honest curiosity the repeated Friends Present Suite to Mr and Mrs
