Birren claim i different personality' types lean toward different color group-" ings. "As a general rule." Miss Kenny said, "if you are an introspective persons you · should like the blue-green range' in decorating. If you are extroverted -- full of warm feelings--you're likely to prefer the red-yellow range. Of course, there always are exceptions." · · » · WHEN Miss Kenny decorates an exhibit home she usually establishes a predominant color that goes all through the house. "For example," she said, "violet carpeting in a living room and dining room sets a certain color mood. Then I pick up the color again here and there, in upholstery, draperies and accessories." Miss Kenny said she uses many different color schemes in model homes--to help match e v e r y o n e ' s color psyche. Her model homes have set the decorating pattern for more than 60,000 homes built mainly on the East Coast, in Puerto Rico and Paris. »j WA UASTltSON' IT'S THIS THURSDAY--NOT APRIL 14!

Would disaster change your personality? Yts No No, in most cases it probably would not. There are some cases in which a serious accident, or the loss cf a loved one, has caused a person to change his whole outlook on life- But this is unusual. Studies of refugees, for example, who were completely uprooted as a result of the Hitler regime, indicated that they r e m a i n e d essentially what they had been. Those who had been dull and colorless before were the sune as refugees. . Those who were pleasant and affable before, W had sparkle and verve, had the same in their new homes. Apparently personality patterns remain much the same, r e g a r d l e s s o f e x t e r n a l changes. now... see yourself in the AS TO the personalities of the several families of color, Miss Kenny said the color psychologists pretty well agree that: p agt -- Red is exciting. It increases restlessness and is an excellent environment for the creation, but not execution, of ideas. -- Modified forms of red -rose, maroon, pink -- are beautif:'! and expressive, universally appealing and deeply emotional. -- Peach has strong appetite appeal and, as a result. is suitable for dining areas. -- Green provides an ideal background for sedentary tasks, concentration and the execution of ideas. -- A dull brown indicates avarice. A grayish brown means selfishness. A greenish brown signals jealousy. -- Orange, the color of self- satisfaction, reveals pride and ambition. Light blue marks devotion to noble ideals. -- Emerald green shows versatility and ingenuity. Look at the colors around you and then j-ou answer the questions.

And they tell a story about grooming habits that is almost impossible to contradict. Every day your hands tell their tale hundred of times! Proper hand and nail care is not as time consuming as you might think. It takes only the will to eliminate a few nail-breaking habits and a 30-minute weekly manicure. For your manicure youl! reed: a rich hand cream, orange wood stick, cotton, emery boards, cuticle remover, polish remover, polish base and colored polish. All these are available at any department or variety store. Although the list is long. the items are quite inexpensive. Start by removing all the old polish using a cotton square and creamy polish remover. Now take a long look at the shape of your nails. File them so that the tips compliment the base. If the base is ovalish, file the top accordingly. Never file nails to a point. they break more easily and are not attractive. · · * * IF 1IAXDS are suffering from long neglect and the skin around the nails is very homy, use the reverse side cf your emery board and gently file it down. Once your nails are shaped soak them in warm soapy water for about two minutes. Rinse and dry hand]. then use an orange wood stick to clean under each naiL Twirl a piece of cotton over the tip of an orangewood stick and apply creamy cutkle remover to each naiL Now go back and work on each finger individually, pushing back the cuticle gently. Rinse your hands in warm water. Thin give your hands a two-minute cream massage. Apply the cream as if you were putting en gloves, massaging each finger from the nail down, and then massaging the back and palm. Wash your hands in a mild soap and dry them thoroughly. Then a p p l y another coat of polish remover. (Polish will not stick to an oily or wet surface.) ing screws should be left to the spatulas and screwdrivers. Don't dial the telephone with your fingernails--that's a sure nail breaker. Use the eraser end of a pencil instead. Don't do heavy housecleaning w i t h o u t using sturdy gloves. Strong detergents, bleach and scouring powder are murder on lovely hands. Do cream your hands after each washing, massaging the cream or lotion into the skin as if you were putting on gloves. Do file off a rough nai] edge as soon as it appears, if your nails are brittle do include gelatine in your diet. NOW YOU'RE ready to give your hands the finishing touch--polish. For long- lasting polish which is practically chip-proof f o l l o w these steps: Apply polish base, let it dry and follow with three coats of colored polish, allowing plenty of drying time between coats. Be sure to use the same brand of base and colored polish. Each maker uses a different formula and mixing brands often results in those terrible little bubbles. Use the tip of a metal nail file to remove any polish on cuticle. Now that you have a pair of hands to be proud of -keep them that way. Here are some do's and don'ts to help ycu.
