Renna of New York, savior of many a Hollywood starlet, opened their northern California studio at 100 East Second Avenue, San Mateo, last weekend. Renna's technique is to restore firm lines and vitality to the face and neck with "educated" fingers and a lubricant. Surgery or cosmetics are not part of the Renna method. According to Dr. James Campbell, originator of the technique and director of training for Renna salons, "we force a quantity of fresh blood Taste Of The Times from "Epicure's Delight" By Vera Harnett Wyman Sales benefit the Society for Crippled Children and Adults available 1764 Marco Polo Way Burlingame, California Clam Chowder from a very old recipe (This came from the grandmother of Joan Carpenter (Mrs. James).

Add 1 can of evaporated milk to the onion and bacon mixture, then combine the two mixtures, then add 1 quart of whole milk. Add salt, paprika and cayenne to taste. Last of all add 2 cans of Pioneer minced clams. Keep it very hot, but do not let it boil after clams are added. For a wholesome corn chowder, Joan merely adds % pepper chopped plus 1 can of corn or equal amount of fresh corn, omitting the clams. I think it would be good with both corn and clams mixed together, maybe omitting the green pepper. Thank you, Joan. Indexes available at center. into the congested area. It has the same effect that exercise has on the whole body. The heart pumps faster and blpipd begins to surge faster throughout the body. At Renna .we start the blood moving quickly in an isolated area without putting a strain on the.'heart."The doctor's method originated in San Francisco in 1922 with Dr. Lorenz who made: h'is bloodless surgery famous as a means for restoring vitality to the body. He was a personal friend of Madame Renna who adapted his method to facial restoration. Dr. Campbell was Madame Renna's husband, and they took their unique salon to New York City in 1923. They catered to the "carriage" trade until 1935 when they foresaw their future in Hollywood where facial perfection is a necessity. Their Beverly Hills office was their only salon until this weekend when they opened in San Mateo. The facial contours usually take about one hour and are given in a series as required tb c o r r e c t the sagging lines. There is no soreness or pain although there may be some sensitivity after the first one. After the initial series, treatments are advised from time to time to maintain the new firmness. Dr. Campbell, who was in San Mateo for the opening of the salon, is a distinguished looking gentleman with a goatee who one could hardly expect to have been around in 1922 -much less hard at work on the Renna method. He is a walking recommendation for his technique. He also is a walking volume of interesting stories ; about th§ Hollywood trade he has catered to for the last 30 years. The most fascinating, and surely the most satisfying ;for him, tells the story of Marilyn Monroe's initial film venture. '· "The late Grade Allen was filming the old Burns and Allen show in a sound stage nearby when Marilyn was testing for the role in 'Asphalt Jungle' that gave her her start. The p r o d u c e r originally turned Marilyn down Because she had a double chin. "Grade noticed her crying, asked what was wrong, and then sent her to our Beverly Hills studio. She paid for Marilyn's treatments (which, she took in successive days) and persuaded the producer to give her the part if Marilyn lost her double chin within five weeks. She did, got the part and was on her way." A Granat diamond is for Now. You could wait until the seas run dry and never find diamonds more beautiful-nor a time more perfect than now. Clockwise from noon: Emerald-cut and baguettes, $600. . Ten diamond set, $500. A swirl of diamonds, $850. Brilliant cut with baguettes, $425. Divided payments available, of course.
