EDITOR'S NOTE: This edition of Woman's World is a reprint from the Tuesday, July 29, 1952 issue of the Algona Upper Des Moines. MUCH OF THE SMART IN SMART clothes comes when one woman sees them on another. Men don't seem to mind that they dress much the same as every other man. Maybe this is because so many of them have just two changes of clothing- with and without. But the girls look at it a little differently. For most of them, at least, a little of the thrill of having a new dress is taken away when she sees another woman wearing one just like hers. - o - IT ISN'T QUITE SO BAD if you like the person who is making like your twin. In fact, I've felt very nattered when a friend whose taste I consider good, turns up with an outfit similar to mine. But if the offender is someone you aren't exactly enthusiastic about, and if she happens to look a little better than you do in the dress- watch out! There'll be sparks Hying and a. couple of perfectly good dresses donated to the next rummage sale. - o - DORTHEA MOULTON AND BETTY MONACO turned up at bridge club last time with dresses identically styled. Both of them were complimented on their appearance, both looked very nice and neither of them seemed a bit peeved! The situation was helped considerably by the fact that they are good friends and that the dresses were of different colors. - o - EVEN THE LITTLEST LADIES notice when someone else is wearing the same styles. One little lady I know didn't take very kindly to the idea. Jeanie has a yellow bathing suit and she wore it for the first time when I took her to the swimming pool several weeks back. I noticed her giving somebody very dirty looks while she was waiting her turn at the drinking fountain. Sure enough, there was another chubby three-year-old with a tiny yellow bathing suit just like Jean's. - o - WITH MINKCOATS AND DIAMONDS, the situation changes a little. It is quite understandable that a gal who hasn't a mink coat or a diamond should envy the gal fortunate enough to have either. But I've never run into anyone who complained because her coat or jewels were just like someone elses. My experience is a bit limited, I admit, but Pd be willing to do some personal research on the problem. Provided the coat was to keep me warm instead of quiet and that it would not make me the object of one of those government investigations. - o - ' THIS SUMMER, A LOCAL LADY, whose son was marrying, decided to splurge a little and get an extra nice gown for the wedding ceremony. She found one that was just right and she justified the expenditure of the extra money by saying she would wear it, for many seasons. When she arrived at the bride's home, several states away, the mother-of-the-bride could hardly wait to show the visiting mother her dress for the wedding. The gasp that the Algona mother gave when she saw her hostesses' gown wasn't altogether caused by the beauty of the material. They discovered that their choices were identical, even to color! I don't know just what they did about the whole thing, but I do know that there have been some weddings where the mothers of the bridal pair dressed alike on purpose and very effectively, too. Maybe that is the way they passed it off in this case. - o- TWINS ARE USUALLY DRESSED alike from babyhood as a matter of course. The past few years Pve read several articles where the Authorities (whoever that means) deem it bad to dress twins identically. You should give a twin a chance to assert his individuality, they say. Phyllis Bray, who has darling seven-year-old twins, is not one who attempts to thwart her youngster's development. She sees to it that the little girls have plenty of twin outfits, but when she get's them ready for school each morning she asks them, "Do you want to be twins today?" and lets them choose accordingly. - o I TALKED WITH ALMA STOEFFEL last Sunday and met her nine-month-old twins, Barbara and Bobby. They are beautiful babies but they don't look much alike. Alma says that it is difficult to find brother-and-sister suits for them at their stage of development so she sews their clothes herself. Barbara had a cute red sun dress and Bobby a brief red sunsuit when I saw them. - o- I THOUGHT THE STOEFFEL FAMILY, consisting of the twin babies plus two tiny daughters, must take a great deal of managing so I asked Alma how she was making out. She told me that when she first learned that twins were imminent she was almost overwhelmed by the prospect of all the family talks. But, so far, she says, all the things she has worried most about have sort of taken care of themselves, one at a time as they came along. Alma has a real talent for homemaking and I imagine she is finding plenty of good use for it. - o - I KEEP WONDERING ABOUT Mrs. Maurice Reding and her family of twins and triplets. I have never met the lady, but reports via the grapevine have it that she is doing very nicely. She even manages occasional evenings out away from the family with her husband. She also does a lot of canning. - o WE HAVE SOME NEW reference books at our home. The encyclopedias are for the adults, the other set for the children. From the way it looks now, Bill is going to get the most good from the adult's books while I find the kid's set fascinating. - o - WE HAVE LEARNED ABOUT THE NEWT. We have a small monster in a fish bowl at our house, S. D. McDonald gave him to us and he was found at a sandpit. We didn't know what he was nor did any of the several uncles that we asked. He looked to be part reptile, part fish. The previous book we consulted seemed to identify it as a newt but our creature had some kind of antler-like formation on his shoulders. When the new books came, we looked up newt, and found that those antlers, since fallen off, were one of the stages of the thing's development. We thought that maybe he had gotten so hungry that he had started to eat himself, - o THE BICYCLE FUND really grew this week. The realization that summer is nearly over may have curbed Bill's appetite for costly knick-knacks for he saved most of what he earned. The present total is $6.65, pending payment for lawn mowing, when and if he finishes it tomorrow. Bill is looking with new respect upon the Algona Upper Des Moines newspaper since he helped haul copies of that worthy publication to the post office last Tuesday! The ABC audit may not agree, but BUI tells me the circulation is around one milliorii GRACE ALL ALGONA city delivery mail carriers began delivery last Saturday and continuing through Monday, of approximately 4,000 "zip-a-list" kits to every household In Algona on a city carrier delivery route. In the above picture, Howard Esser, one of the carriers, Is displaying a telescoped sheet containing eight cards to be used to obtain zip codes needed for personal mailing lists. Howard was carrying city four, replacing Harold Voigt for the latter's day off, when this picture was taken. Householders will simply list the addresses for which zip codes are wanted and return the card to the postoffice. No postage is needed. Your own return address must be included. The postoffice will then help you by filling in the zip code of the addresses you most frequently use and send it back to you.
