The Program Committee has rranged for a square dance with Charles Sturtevant calling the figures..Anyone missing a step will be beaned with a gavel. Music will be furnished by a nationally known orchestra via the N.B.C. network.

ADVICE TOT HE LOVETORN Ask Aunt Agnes Dear Aunt Agnes,

  I have just invited my girl to the Polygon Thanksgiving Dance, and it leaves me in a terrible fix. It seems that she is particularly fond of the new trucking dances and all of the fast and furious hops. But unfortunately, I am one of these slow and romantic dancers who spend more time on smooth talk rather than on actual steps. Please advise me what to do in order to insure a good time for her. 
   Malcolm Joyner

Dear Malcolm,

  The only thing to do is to see Mr. Edward Radcliffe when he arranges the dance cards, and get him to book most of you girl's dances with Bill Pace. 

Dear Auntie,

  I am worried sick. I'm in an awful tight spot. It happened that my good nature and generosity has led me in a pitfall. While on a moonlight excursion last summer, I invited every girl on the boat to our Thanksgiving dance, and two of them accepted! How can I escape from this predicament. 
    George Gaskins

Dear Sonny,

  I suggest that you invite you very close friend, "Chuck" as your guest, and have him as an escort to one of your girl friends. She will be delighted with the change -  if she can tell the difference. 

Girl Friend: "Gee honey, I'm so thin you can feel my ribs," Boy Friend: "Gosh, thanks."
