If you're a "tipping worrier"
you'e be amazed at how much
company you have. Unless you
travel so much, or dine out so
often, that it becomes almost
automatic you probably have
those momenta when you won
der, "How much should I give
her?" . . .. "Was that enough?"
"Did the waiter expect more?"
So it bothers you—and you—
and you.
It really shouldn't, you know.
It just isn't all thflt important
to let it make you anxious
about doing the "right thing"
. . . There is no such animal
as a perfectly positive tipper—
nor a positively perfect tipper,
either.
It is said that it all began
in English inns a century or
so ago. There were little, slott
ed boxes placed in the lobbies
which were labeled "To Insure
Promptness." Guests dropped
small coins into the slots when

Shown with a company stew
they wished an errand done
for them or some other extra
service performed. The rewards
in the boxes were a sort of
"incentive plan" for the serv
ants. In time, just the abbrevi
ation of the phrase appeared—
T. I. P.—and later came into
the language as the term for
the money itself. It is not a
thoroughly popular custom by
any means—but it is here to
stay.
Since tipping is part of the
out-of-pocket expense of any
vacation it must be given some
consideration. Here are a few
tipping hints that will give you
an idea of some "average"
gratuities expected from you
for certain services.
First, let us S|ay that most
airlines personnel never accept
tipping of any kind. Sky Caps
(airport porters) are the ex
ception. Usual tip soc per
bag.

nice L. Alexander, Miss Byrdie

The dime tip has just about
gone the way of the buggy
whip. About the only place left
where it is accepted with pleas
ure is at a drug store soda
fountain or at a small coffee
shop counter when you have
had something less than a meal.
Hotel tipping: To the porter
who carrier your luggage to
your room upon checking in
or out, tip 50c a bag minimum
if you have several pieces. Tip
more if you have but one case.
Dining in hotels calls for 15%
of your total meal cost for
average waiter service. Boost
to 20% if the service is ex
ceptional. Chambermaids wel
come 25, 50c per guest per day
spent in the hotel. Doormen
who get cabs or help you with
packages are usually given 50c.
It is not necessary to tip for
just opening the door of your
car. Some hotels have an ex
tra charge for room service. If
so, a token tip is enough.
