Noyes spoke informally on * their hobbies of amateur photography before the fine arts group of the Ironwood Woman's club yesterday afternoon. There were 45 women in the audience.

Among his mounted pictures on the wall were enlargements of Boulder Dam taken from an airplane and another of a circus parade on Suffolk street. Mr. Noyes, in speaking briefly of press photography, demonstrated the use of the pressman's camera by taking a flashlight picture of the group. He said that if there is any secret in taking good pictures it lies In being careful. Modern photography he said is not a change In the invention of picture talcing but in the thought behind It.

Picture taking as a constructive hobby for children was endorsed by him.

Brand new right now is a pencil-shaped Up-coloring gadget, filled with creamy lipstick and tipped with a small sable brush.

The penci; is filled with lipstick which flows easily when the cap is turned. Turn the cap and the red cream flows out of the pencil into the center of the brush. You first outline the lios with the brush, then fill in between the lines. Let the color set for a few moments before pressing a piece of cleansing tissue tightly between lips.
