City " Nine-Hour-a-Day Gispness Is Vital for Girl with Career (By NBA Strvlee) Many career girls feel they have discharged their duty to beauty by arriving at the office fresh and attractive. What' happens to their appearance In the course of lh« day's work Is not their responsibility, they feel. Your job may involve meeting a, changing public who, seeing you for only a frazzled moment, don't real- ze you looked better when you >unched the morning time-clock. Or perhaps only your boss and a handful of fellow-employes are subjected each day to watching the itcady downward plunge of your icauty barometer. In either cas«, t's a mistake. If yours is dirty work, like handing carbons or dusting stock, make frequent trips to the wash basin a regular part of your routine. Make a point, too, of protecting Service Program Given For WMS "A Glimpse of Youth Around the World" was the Royal Service program presented for the Women's Missionary Society of the Huffman! Baptist Chureii when the group met Monday afternoon at the church. A devotional by Mrs. Rex Hughes preceded the opening prayer by Mrs. Milton Dallas. Program participants were, Mrs. R. L.

The whole effect of » crisp white blouse can be marred by spots on the sleeve or splptches on the front. Smocks serve HA attractive shields against grime. Or, it the atmosphere of your office or shop is more formal, try sleeve guards to keep your cuffs snowy white. These can easily be made from sheets of typing paper, fastened conn-fashion around your wrists with transparent tape. Remember, too, that the role of sooty-cheeked gamin Is not for career girls. To keep looking your efficient best, remember to check your, face for smudges each time yo\^ wash your hands. " Read Courier News Classified Ads. Is Coke on your shopping list ? It's Here!
