A quick hair glamor trick for teens requires nothing more than bobby pins and a chignon. In a matter of minutes you can change from short-haired informality to the softer, mm-e feminine appeal of a long-hair fashion. And some of the prettiest and most original hair ornaments, are the home-made variety. String or wire jeweled or colored buttons or odd earrings to bobby pins (left). Before you attach your chignon, pin curl several rows of back hair g so that you will 'be able to anchor the chignon securely (above a center). Use rubber-tipped pins. They're comfortable arid won't harm your hair. A real hair piece, matched to your own hair, will give a smooth, sleek effect (above right). Broker Arrested For Embezzling KANSAS CITY im— Mrs. Faune T. Leask, former bond broker here, has been arrested in New York on a charge of embezzling §4,360 from a Kansas City client, Prosecutor Henry H. Fox, Jr., said Wednesday. Mrs. Leask, 54, was one of four persons named in secret indictments Saturday by a Jackson County Grand Jury. The indictment alleges she obtained the money from W. H. Austin while serving as his agent in buying and selling municipal water bonds in 1949. Austin, now retired, formerly operated a business of drilling municipal water wells. Mrs. Leask, now manager of a fashionable craft shop in New York's Rockefeller Center, is being held there under ?10,000 bond Don't let your husband, brother or son throw away that old shirt. It has tremendous fashion possibilities for you. A little ingenuity plus scissors, needle and thread can transform any number of shirts into a variety of accessories. This news will be especially valuable to the tall girl who can never keep her shirt tails where they belong. Imagine, for instance, the versatile uses of a tuck-in blouse like the one pictured at the left. It's easy to make, too, and looks so chic with a full skirt and wide belt. And if you are a short night- .£»wfl-enthusiast, a made-owrjnan's-shirt-wiH-jnake-an addition to your collection (center). AH you have to do is remove the sleeves and collar, leaving the collar-band, and add a raw edge of eyelet edging. Dye the shirt any color you like. If you happen to be dealing with a shirt'that is too worn to be of much value as a blouse, it still has possibilities. Cut it down to the size of a serving apron (right). For color and design sew contrasting rick rack along the bottom. Your guests will never imagine its natural origin unless you chance to tell them. Of course, there is no limit to-tte diff«rent,shirt-stjles available-for tile-making. "or a hearing next Monday on a fugitive warrant.
