TIME ORDER YOUR years. Investment Problems Joyce and Sally have tackled the investment problems of women with a view to explaining in the simplest possible terms just how you go about accumulating a nest- egg that may be expected to hatch some sound security in later years. They tell you such things as what are stocks and bonds, how and where to buy them, how to read the stock quotations in the newspapers, how to choose a safe list of investments and how to cash in if you need money for an emergency. 'Today women have to be economists," said Mrs. Hiram Cole Houghton, past president of the General Federation of Women's Clubs, in a foreword. 'The 'hand that rocks the cradle' belongs now all too often to one who must also negotiate the loan at the family bank to pay for the new roof next fall or understand the provisions of her husband's life insurance pol- lcies. i ' 4 MAPI ORDER FREE ESTIMATE HAWKINS CALL 151 Ctdnr 7393-6 Open House Will Honor R.

The Warner Studio assigned its best talent to bringing the production into being, using as a basis his day compared with the present day hazards of auto, bus and bus traffic, and that the Safety Patrol was one of the greatest helps in combatting these dangers- Mr. Fuller then compared the few visual aids used in his time with the many sound and. strip films available to his children. He concluded by saying, "No one thinks of organized field trips as a means of learning but today that is a part of each grade's curriculum." Miss Nellie Swanson, elementary supervisor, spoke on changes in curriculum. She said she believed the greatest change was in recognizing the importance of children's emotions, by teachers. They know that the inner feelings of fear, worry, home turmoil or hate affect a child's ability to get along with his associates. Teachers recognize that all children do not develop at the same rate, but that they must have a feeling of success in some area. Miss Swanson spoke of the change in the placement of curriculum materials, due to research findings that children learn certain things at different ages than was formerly thought. She stressed the importance of creative work which grows out of the academic. This gives the children the opportunity to express things their way. This releases talents which should not be bound in. Following the panel discussion Mrs. Ellen Hempfing, accompanied by Mrs. Alene Livers, led group singing. Mr, Ostrander, scouting executive, spoke of the need for a cub pack leader. Mrs. Robert Egan presented the Girl Scout Handbook and the Brownie Handbook to Mrs. Morris to be placed in the school library.

They sew them on their sweaters, on hats, on gloves, on .shoes—1 hey even paste them on their eyelids. "If you merely want glitter, why not wear a lighted electric bulb in each car?" Ten Dress Commandments Mr. Fath, under gentle persuasion, Issued the following 10 commandments for being well dressed in any language: 1—Keep it simple. Simplicity is the one fundamental rule for good taste. 2—Give proper enre to the hairdo. It must be suitable to the individual and neat, 3—Wear the simplest possible shoes—plain pumps in well-polished calf or kid or well-brushed suede. No sequins, please. No open toes or open heels. No ankle straps. 4—Don't load yourself with accessories. Learn to eliminate unnecessary decoration. 5—Don't overdress. It's far better to be undcrdresscd for any occasion than to be overdressed. 6—Save your glamor clothes for after 5 p.m. You needn't carry the simplicity theme to the point of wearing an old sweater and tweed skirt for cocktails. 7— Keep your hat smart, but simple. It should not detract attention from your face, your hairdo and your gown. 8—For ordinary evening wear short dresses are most becoming and practical—except for formal dinners and dances. 9—Gloves should be plain, im- maculato and expensive. 10—Jewelry also should be simple —unless you happen to own a peck of real diamonds. Then the sky's the limit. But if your resources are limited, choose one piece of real jewelry rather than several pounds of rhinestons. BEREA CLASS Berea Class of the Mission Covenant Church will meet at the church Monday evening at 8 o'clock. Members are being asked to please note change of meeting date.
