"Our ton li being mtrrled next month and I want more than anything in the world to htve my dtughtcr-ln-ltw like me. So many of my friends don't get along well with the ilrls their sons mtrry that it frlfhttnt me. I've only met my son's flaucee once—but they'll make their home in our town—so you see I want to get off on the right foot." You're llreidy getting off on the right foot You realise the Importance of the mother-daughter-in- law relationship and you art eager to make It • pleasant one. I once hear a woman say: made up my mind I'd like any girl my son married." That is important. Since » mother can't pick out a wife for her son, It's up to her to like the girl he picks out for himself. And if you like her—snd show that you do—she will like you. I believe at the start of their marriages most girls want their husband's mother to like them. It isn't until after they get the feeling that they are resented by the mother-in-law, or that she Is critical of them, or that she is unwilling to let the youjig folks lead their own lives, that the daughter-in-law feels she must prove who Is head woman. YOU'LL GET ALONG TOGETHER IF ... So if you are glad that your son s marrying and mating a home of] ills own; If you accept the gui :hose Instead of measuring her actions by some yardstick you h»ve your mind of how our son'i wife should -ct and what should be like; It you resolve neve to offer unsolicited advice or Int fere in their plans—you'll gel ali all right with your daughter-' law. But In your de.slre to make son's wife like you. don't work to hard at it. A new marriage can .stand a lot of letting alone fron the parents on both sides. Let you daughter-in-law know that she ha a friend In you and that you'll there whenever she needs you help—but trust her to decide wherj she does need you. In the mean time go right on about the buslJ ness of living your own life—ancf let the young folks live theirs. Mrs. P/cfeens If Hostess To Dyess Baptist W.M.U. The Dycss Baptist Women's Missionary Union met Thursday even- 1 ing at the home of Mrs. Ernest Hlckcns for a Royal Service Pro- j gram. Trierc were 13 members and five guests present.

Toes get "the works" first: The barest rounding of toe-nail corners is best. Deep-filing woti't give the flesh on toe tips the protection it needs; can be encouraging to in- growing nails. Use a liquid cuticle remover that allows dead cuticle to be shredded off with a towel. Follow with a soaking in warm oil which will help in sloughing off callouses. This double-routine cleans up the shaggy outline around the nails. Pedicure routine should follow the manicure routine down to the last layer of "overcoat." However, toe polish should not cover the entire moon. A slight arc left unlac-. quercd on all nails adds the salon- neat look of polished toe and ilnger- Vofns as Technician Pvt. Claverr G. Loveless, of Rt. ll Manila, has recently been gradu-tf d from the hospital technicl: ourse just concluded at Medici Field Service School, Port Houston. Tex. He is the son of Mr! and Mrs. K. S. Loveless of Rt. l| Manila. Polish the most difficult hand first (your right If you're right- handed) with not more than lour brush strokes per nail; one stroke of color to outline the cuticle and three more to cover the nail. Little rolls of cotton wedged between toes before polishing will simplify your pedicure and keep polish on each toe safe from smears. There's almost a prism of reds to choose from for any color. Pick n red at fingers and 'oes that will be an accessory color for your favorite summer cottons. Keep that color blight and unchipped by add- iug a clear lacquer to nails three days afier a manicure and pedicure to prolong the lastingness of both.
