It's the time when the sap starts rising, when the young man's fancy turns to love, when the kids lose their marbles and when the ladies break out in their new Easter bonnets. Of all the articles of clothing Milady has worn down through the ages, no one item has come in for so much admiration and envy from her.sisters or so much derision from the fellows as her hat. * • » A hat is more to a woman than a mere means of covering the head. It's a kind of bright banner to make her feel better when she's blue, yet she can wear a hat when she's feeling gay to express her exhuberance. A gal .can wear a hat to cover up her hair when it's looking less than it's best or she can also wear a hat to show off a hairdo that is the latest word in perfection. If circumstances permit, any woman would prefer to buy herself a Whole new outfit and use the new hat as" the final bit of frosting, but if she can't buy a single other new thing, a new bonnet can disguise the fact that the rest of her outfit is leftover from last year. And almost, if a lady is going to invest in a spring hat, she manages to year it for the first time on Easter Sunday. • • • Easter is a time of hope.

All around us in nature is evidence of life renewed and we gals, vaitt creatures that we are, like to keep in the spirit of the season by blossoming out in new fineryi This is all well and good, and a bit of vanity may be forgiven as long as we don't let our interest 1ft our appearance eclipse the true meaning of the day. But, Upon a little introspection, I find that I am somehow more apt to preach this philosophy in the years, like this one, when I don't have a single new thing to wear for Easter. * • • I like hats. 1 like little hals and big ones; I like them gooped up with flo"wers and feathers. Veiling ahd artifical fruit and the sillier the better. Every year, as long as I can remember, people have said that the current crop of women's headgear is the goofiest ever and this year, I think they really have grounds 'for their criticism. There are hats shaped like a coal bucket, hats shaped like a wash basin and hats shaped as if they were flying-saucer fugitives from a space ship. The millinery industry seems to be operating on the principle that a hat designed to look like a hat will never sell. * * * AB long as hats don't look like hats, anyway, why can't we gals who just happen to lack the pur- •ctiase price of a new chapeau whip up some models of our own out of material we have on hand? The possibilities are quite endless, it seems to me. For instances, that shiny saucepan reposing in the kitchen cupboard. Couldn't we drag it out, wear it inverted with the handle slanted upward and decorate it with some carrots and a few cabbage leaves? If it doesn't pan out as a hat we can always turn it right side up and cook the vegetables in it for supper. * * • Or how about that large lampshade up in the attic? It's the right shape for a hat and if we could conceal a flashlight somewhere in its depths, wouldn't we be simple de-lighted with this bright new number? And, tod, it would come in real handy on dark nights when we're trying ib-iind the..Keyhole in the Jqpj. and it wouliii also be convenient : in finding our shoes after we've kicked them* off for comfort in the movies. * • • If U is a hat that is "out of this world" we are looking for maybe we could saw that world globe in two and trim ft with some tickets for the first space ship trip to the moon. Or we could utilize an old flower pot, invert it and spruce it up with a little parsley. This would be particularly suitable to the mature woman who has gone slightly "to pot" anyway. Some fashion experts advise wearing hats to fit Milady's moods. So if you are in a soft and cuddly mood, maybe an old sofa pillow placed at a jaunty angle would convey something or other to your Old Man. On the other hand, maybe a football helmet to which are tied a pair Marilyn Roeder To Wed June 4 L Mr and Mrs Georee Boeder announce the approaching Wedding of their daughter Marilyn, above, and Leroy J.

(Isaacson photo—UDM engraving) of boxing gloves would give him notice that you really need to be handled with gloves on. If you want to stay in theme with the holiday, your Easter bonnet could be made from your deep fat fryer basket. A couple of live baby chicks could be purchased at a small outlay and placed in the wire enclosure. Very chic! Your friends will be wordless with envy when you turn up in it. In fact you won't hear a peep out of them. • • ' • Since new hats are dizzy anyway, why can't we make one out of your favorite phonograph record. That is certainly in keeping with the platter shaped mode. If you decide this hat doesn't exactly strike the right note, you can take it off, put it on a record player and dance to "Tina Marie.". . A hat with an exotic afc could ^made of 'a' wheel of limburge'f cheese and trimmed with a string of garlic and a brace of Bermuda onions. But if you want a little number that will take your breath away, use a garnish of cloves, Sen Sen, Chlorophyll toothpaste and a small sized bottle of mouth wash. One of the most popular of the season is a hat shaped just like a coal scuttle. What it lacks in beauty is more than made up in practically for it entirely covers the head and to wear ft you don't have to your hair fixed. Of course, most gals when they wear this have a little trouble seeing out, but then you can't have everything," However^ in this day of oil and gas fuel, I doubt very much if anybody has an old coal scuttle with which to make a homemade hat. So perhaps, we'd better scuttle this whole idea and either wear the Happiness to share a diamond chosen with caro, One of the most important decisions you'll have to make,..selecting her diamond.

And if I want to keep in good with my friends the local merchants, perhaps I'd better add that I have been only kidding. I think this year's offering of feminine millinery is perfectly darling! * « * Last week something happened that I've been predicting Would happen ever since that barber shop rented the other half of the building that houses a local plumbing firm. Saturday there were some children waiting in line at the barber shop to get haircuts. As is inevitable with the small-fry, a couple of them had to use the rest room. The plumbing firm was closed, but the barber gave the kids the key, told them to go through that door and turn on the light in the bathroom. After a few minutes, another of the barber shop's -waiting patrons thought he'd go along to see if the children found the light. The rest room was empty! But that bathroom display of the newest in tubs, lavatories and, water closets is now .a bit more second-hand than the plumber thought it was. ;• * * One of the time honored traditions of the Easter season is Hot Cross Buns, so that's what this week's recipe is. 6 to 6Mi cups flour !• tsp. cinnamon % teasp. nutmeg 1 cup milk 1 cake fresh yeast 1 cup seedless raisins V\ cup sugar 1 tsp. salt 1 egg well beaten Vt cup softened butter % cup water % cup currants Sift and measure flour and sift again with spices.
