Then, loo, ihtf repairs are not noticeable. Hosiery Repair Section 1UU AVENUE BUILDING BASEMENT * There's no month quite like it. Gusty. Brown. Crisp. Warm underneath with the smolder of leaves. Stadiums scoop up thousands. Cleats pierce frozen mud. "Down in front!" A warm glow indoors mocks dull skies. Merry evenings of dance. "Come on, let's go." Everything moves faster. The game, the dinner, the dance, the breathless ride over smooth roads that once echoed the clop of flying hoofs. Best of the season's shows seen with smart young lords of the universe disguised as freshmen. A touch of memory—the march under steel helmets—the war is not forgotten. Then, a mellower day of Thanksgiving that prolongs itself into a Summer-like week-end indoors. Delicacies for the gourmet, games for glad hearts, colorful spectacle! Folk from the country to the city, and from the city to the country. New melodies ride the radio from Broadway to Boise. New gridiron heroes. "Please, mother," from petulant daughters eager to go places, is the modern saxophone against the older folks' violin tales of seeing Kathleen home. Femininity wraps itself in a cocoon of furs. Lusterless eyes begin to sparkle and sallow faces touch on red. It's a newly eager world, amazingly alive and active in this November month. It finds its way into the great doors of this store, is reflected in the glorious spectacle of fine things, warm things, new things to help the pagentry of November
