Drama Queen, August 1944

Drama Queen was a favorite of those who enjoyed playing out all the little scenes in life and was chock full of goodies and new tricks.  Darma Queen was also the first perdioical to take the bold step of declaring that dropping one's hankie to lure a man into one's circle of influence was passe, instead insisting that all any man wants is to have a woman grab onto him, sobbing and refusing to let go.  In 1929, the magazine even was so bold as to suggest that if one were going to throw themselves out of a window, do so with "flourish and panache" and on an empty stomach.
