Contents:
Tango pirates and absinthe
The most popular girl
Sex o'clock in America
Will she throw her arms around your neck and yell?
Flapper King
Doing it for effect
I prefer this sort of girl
Straighten out people
New York sophistication
Miss jazz age
Girlish delight in barrooms
These modern women
The lingerie shortage in this country
A mind full of fabulations
An athletic kind of girl
Let go of the waistline
Into the streets
Without imagination, no wants
10,000,000 femmes fatales
Appearances count
Papa, what is beer?
Oh, little girl, never grow up
The king of girl the fellows want
Another petulant way to pass the time
The dreamer's dream come true
Suicide on the installment plan
Unaffordable excess.
