The mother missed her tiny
daughter, and notified the nearest

patronized the candy shops and
gorged herself on hot dogs and
other edibles, without a care in the
Finally, she wound up in a bar
ber shop, where she usually went
for a bob. The barber was a bit
suspicious, when he saw her roll
and found no adult with her. He

Kansac City, Mo.—The fate of lost
handkerchiefs is rarely known, but
those that disappear from the poc

part of a pair of “'souvenir paja
mas.” Since only sixteen hand
kerchiefs are needed, discrimination
is used and only those belonging
to “‘good dates,” campus leaders,
such as “ M” men, are taken.
The idea of making the pa
jamas first suggested itself to a
university girl when she noticed
she unintentionally had acquired
several men's handkerchiefs. They
were rather nice ones and it seem
ed a shame not to use them for
something, and then came the big
