But Kitty Phillips not only supplied the incentive and the ride for the plunge, she also brought a bathing suit.' » * • * MOST OF US GALS WHO ARE CHARITABLY speaking, a little past the first bloom of youth', are quite self-conscious about display- jng our bulges at the pool. But swimming is wonderful exercise, and with all the svelte young bathing beautiies, who's going tb look at us anyway? Come on in, the water's fine! » • " • • » « * FRESH PEACHES ARE COMING on the market, and none too soon to suit my taste.
