Making Your Makeup Last Advice on Saving Beauty Cosmetics for Ru ration 1 '-' By BKTTY CLAKKK AI> Feature Service Writer How to keep your face made-up longer is something of a teaser any lime. But now when you're doing homework, war work and then some, f you wish you realily had a way to do it. That's why 1 asked the pretty Cuban radio singer, Emma Otero, how she manages to look lovely in spite of rushing from rehearsal to broadcast and back again. '• ' She says her secret is to apply • powder first, (hen add a liquid powder base as a topper (instead of as a base). By smoothing the foundation makeup over the powder, you get a clear and clcmi .'.uok minus a shine. ( I And you thereby avoid cakey or spotty powdering. Miss Otero insists her way wastes less time because it makes the makeup lust longer. She uses no rouge, preferring the languid lipstick und Where We Are Right Now rouge, she puts it lightly over her entire face (and she means lightly-) after the base application and wipes it off with tissue to leave a rosy lone but no red color. You may prefer to put some extra powder also on top of the base but dust it on with a fluffy puff (nose, chin and forehead may need it especially). Try wiping it off lightly with tissue. This is Ihe time to be concerned with correct color. If you're not sure yours are right, next time you buy makeup consult a makeup specialist free at beauty salons or cosmetic counters. And remember, as Miss Otero does, that diet often can do more for your skin—not necessarily a starvation diet but more balance to the food you're choosing.

Starting in a small way, they rapidly developed into one of the largest shippers of these products in Southwest Arkansas. Later or about .» 1927, the Monts Feed Store was established in conjunction with the Hope Fruit Growers Association— carrying jj complete line of field and garden seeds for the benefit of Hope and Hempslead county people.

This part of the business was added about ten years ago and in the beginning was sold to retail trade only. economy in cost became known sales increased rapidly and area of distribution was gradually enlarged until it now includes the entire state. Today, for example, with the exception of local retail trade through the store, the entire output is sold through jobbers and wholesalers with state wide distribution facilities to some 1500 meat markets and grocery stores over the state. This statewide area of distribution is in itself a splendid testimonial of the quality of the product. Monts Sugar Cure, for example, sells for only 7c per pound and 5 pounds will completely sugar cure 100 pounds of pork using 10 days to do the job. Thus, while a very small percentage of their output is absorbed locally yet the mixing cost of the entire production is represented to a great extent by wages paid employees is distributed with Hope people and ultimately enters local trade channels. In fact this one product brings thousands of dollars of outside money to Hope which would otherwise never find its way here and A. C.

The newest yarn about this homely Narcissus concerns his role in a prize All Honolulu Keyed to War Tropical City Wants 'Another Crack at Japs' By BKTTY MacDONALD NKA Service Slnff Correspondent HONOLULU-There hasn't been so much activity in Hawaii since they dethroned the last Hawaiian queen half a century ago. At least, that's the opinion of the graybearcls around town who have lived through 50 peaceful years here on a sleepy tropical island. Honolulu, today, is a gangly, growing, defense youngster in the throes of coining of age—rudely—as of December 7. Palm-fringed streets are studded with sandbagged machine-gun nests, buildings are heavily barricaded and sentries challenge all persons who stroll outside at night. During the day new soldiers are everywhere, just off transports, gawking like the tourists of a season ago. Our favorite beaches are crisscrossed with barbed wire and pitted with gun emplacements. Honolulu housewives gossip over back fences about the new island vegetables they are trying out because most mainland supplies are curtailed. There's a shortage, too, of candy, beef, oranges. Honolulu businessmen are concerned with (a) how to get more gasoline ration tickets, (b) when liquor will be back in Hawaii (c) should par be raised on golf courses since the army fouled the fairways with barbed wire to prevent enemy planes from landing, (d) whether to pay that bomb shelter company $40 to dig the shelter or do the job themselves, (e) about that liquor again. Honolulu children aren't concerned about a thing. Schools are closed, for the present at least. Boy Scouts help keep waiting lines in order at civilian fingerprinting stations and Girl Scouts are folding bandages for the Red Cross and learning how to knit. Crime Is on the Downbeat Crime is down to its lowest level in years in a blacked-out town that goer to bed with the chickens and gets up with the dawn patrol. And, there hasn't been a hangover since December 7. The cry, "Remember Pearl Harbor' has gaineda significance that wil probably out-shout slogans of thi past. Local newspapers and radio stations blast out the phrase daily, res taurants print it on their menus, sailors sing it, soldiers speak it and hun dreds emboss it on their letterheads.

The make-believe war may prepare .hem mentally for the dangers of actual warfare, and an air raid may seem just a more exciting form of a familin game. This is the advice of officials of the Child Study Association of America, now devoting a cencentrated program to the training of parents in the best means of protecting theii children from "war nerves." Fright Psychosis Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt advises parents to teach small children to make games of bombing raids, to protect the magainst a fright psychosis. She tells of her 2-year-old grandson Haven Roosevelt, son of Ensign John Roosevelt, who has been taught to say "Moom!" wherever he heart the big guns at the' San Diego Naval Base. "Now the child thinks he is creating the explosion and is delighted every lime he heads one," soys the First Lady, "As a result of this method, the child will not be frightened if there is a real bombing." War Games Other children may play more intricate war games, plan battle strategy, and take an academic interest in any actual war that may come. It is natural for children to. imitate their environment when they play And so we may expect to see littie ( jj boys playing with toy tanks and anil* * ^ airciaft gupns, small girls dressing *"g then dolls as Red Cross nurses t ~* «f It is an escape from all to grim reaVj-/ if oities, and the sign of a healthy) nb>> nul imagination i f "May I have another cake?".

On a Sunday afternoon visit to Hugh Herbert's ranch .some months ago, she expressed great admiration for the floral equarium which is a feature of the house because it's set into the lloor of the living room. Recently she went out again with some friends and very nearly fell into a second pond which is almost exactly like the first except that it dominates the front lawn.

Hair Raid Your Property on Short Notice. J. P. Byers, Owner. : At one time in the early days of 1 Arkansas, requirements for giving deeds and having them recorded when property transfers were made were not so strict or important as in recent years. Also, during the past few years the desire to cut down expenses has time. These complete records plus their years of experience is your assurance that the title to your property is as shown by any abstract which they compile. Hempstead county people who may solicit a federal farm loan or one under the Federal Housing Authority Act will find this service of especial value since a clear title and up-to-date many property transfers to be ' abstract is required on all property on vilhoul benefit of abstracting | which federal loans are granted. The caused m made with — , or title investigation. The result is business policy of the Byers Abstract that titles to a substantial portion of property not only in Hempstead county but nil over the state has been and Js in a delinquent condition. Because *of such a condition millions of dollars has been foolishly lost all over the United States when for a nominal sum they might have had full and complete information and absolute protection. ) Jn this respect, the Byers Abstract Company is one of courtesy and convenience to their customers and the business they have built up in their years of service is a testimonial to the accuracy and efficiency they employ in solving your title problems. They take this opportunity to express appreciation for your business in the yew pf 1941 and to invite ypur continued patronage during 1942. Adv.

Where most residents have built Hawaiian-type houses with open windows and lanais (porches) thut virtually brought the gardens into their homes, blackout paint and tarpaper have obliterated the views. The lucky officials who can use their autos at night, drive in the wake of two pin points of light shining blue through two-inch slils in the headlights. The gay blades-about-town are in uniform now and our favorite hula dancers are working in defense offices. The siren that once rang curfew from Aloha Tower in the city, now waits silently to signal uir-raid alarms. As you walk the streets, you subconsciously note arrows painted at the corners. They point to first-aid shelters where staffs are on duty 24 hours a clay. And everyone becomes nervous when a hum of planes is hearc overhead or when a nervous crack o machine-gun fire barks through the darkness as soldiers practice.

The army claimed a crushing victory after 8 hours of furious assault. Their enemy: a giant kiawe (algaroba) forest which the army needed cleared for undisclosed military purposes.
