She can laugh and perhaps enjoy an hour at a party so her companions can express their How Could You! feelings. Or, she can act a hit tired and depressed. That will give them opportunity to dust off their pep talks. They can tell her how LIFE GOES ON and that she must snap out of it!

It is is-onlonic in action, assisting the plasma colloids (the skin's water carriers) to retain a balanced moisture level at the skin's surface, so that the complexion acquires a florious bloom. Smoothed over the face and neck before make-up is applied, this moist oil of Olay helps the skin to enjoy clear loveliness. Ask your druggist for a supply for your personal needs. . . . Margaret Merril cille Ball just to see how they would handle the problems of widowhood. Alas, I should have known they would not be confronted with any of the real problems. Diahann Carroll has had to face up to some minor racism but there's nothing she can't handle with a snap of the fingers. Miss Ball and her teenagers have only minor conflicts with each other and apparently none with the outside world. Doris Day, equipped with two adorable sons, is as sweet as ever und Hope Lange types away at her job as a writer and copes beautifully with the help of children, maid-companion and fluffy dog.

She had to be asked because she and dear old Harry were part of the crowd for years and friends have to be sympathetic, don't they? Of course, having her does make the seating arrangement difficult. And, It is rather embarrassing the way all Irene's old friends clutch at their husbands when she walks in alone. Well, not all of them. Seemingly, the wives of the very dullest men are the most defensive here. But, the real problem is that Irene walks in ALONE. As though she doesn't understand that the world is set up on a couples-basis. Not only has Irene suddenly, in the eyes of her best friends, become a femme fatale the minute the funeral flowers faded, but she also Is a nuisance. It isn't really anything she DOKS. It is just that one feels sort of responsible for her. And, there are times when she actually resents it! She seems to think It rude and peculiar when a friend asks questions about how much money Harry had in insurance. Think how strangely she reacted when asked if she really needed to buy that new winter coat! Of course, one wouldn't have thought of asking such a personal question last winter, but that was BEFORE and things have CHANGED. As the season goes on, Irene might find herself weighing her words carefully on our show. She will not dare tell that hilarious story about the cat pulling down the window shade in the dining room because she will know the reaction of some listeners will be, "Irene wants my husband to come over and fix that window Here's Weight Of Problem It's a tricky problem.

It takes four wardens to move 43-year-old Clara who is serving a sentence for theft. Says a prison report, "No furniture or beds can now be produced to sustain Convict Bertoll." They tried moving her to a hospital. But that (ailed, for the police complain they can't spare the men necessary for shift guards. But here's a curious thing. Clara was nothing like so fat when she was arrested three years ago. Now psychologists have to decide: Is she allergic to prison life, and reacts by gaining weight? Or is she simply over-eating to embarrass the goverjr?
