PACE SIX, SECOND SECTION Make Over Out-Dated Dress There are nine chances out of ten that the good, but dated, basic dress which ttill hangs unused In your cjoset can be salvaged. Have you thought of dropping its length by adding a near-matching hem band or setting a yoke in below the waist? Either piece of patch-work strategy can be kept under cover with a glamorous tie-on overskirL St3r-duit chiffon, which is as glamorous as the name implies, was used in this manner to transform a back-isrue number into a captivating ballerina dress. All that was done to reclaim the good, but dated, dress of coppery satin was to strip off hip-drapery and to add a nearly matching hem band five inches in width. To bide the patchwork which salvaged this dress an ankle-length overskirt of beige-colored chiffon, lightly glitter-dusted witn threads of gold and silver, was pleated on to a waistband cummerbund sash. Only four yards of 40-inch wide chiffon were required to make the tkirt Three yards which made three lengths went into a pleated kirt and one yard was used for making a bias-cut cummerbund sah, the ends of which are tucked in after it is tightly wrapped around the waist Child's Duster Aids Grooming Now a tiny child, trained in the habits of good grooming, can also dust herself after a bath without dusting herself out of sight. The hazard of creating a flurry in a bathroom like a rampant snowstorm has also been removed, thanks to a new type of dusting-powder container. For this one, powder is cached in the hollow plastic handle of a brush. The flow of powder from a silky fine hair brush is completely controlled Only when the brush Ls stroked over the user's skin is the powder released. Children will, not only like the business of brushing but the whiff of super - fragrant powder which rewards their efforts. Mothers will approve the idea that no matter with what youthful abandon her child uses the brush, it gives her offspring an after-bath dusting with a fine, even film of powder.

Winter Hair Glamor Wintertime colds and other ills which lower resistance generally, take their toll of hair and skin. This is the time of the year when hair resembles matting used for up-holsterv stuffine. It is ouite an ef fort to get that nice silky smooth ness so easily achieved during other seasons. The only solution seems to be regular beauty parlor visits, frequent scalp and oil treatments. During the cold damp winter months it is a bit of a risk to shampoo hair at home unless you have adequate drying facilities. Physicians say that many sore throats and colds are due to washing the hair at home and not thoroughly drying it. If you find it necessary to clean your hair between beauty shop visits, use one of the dry shampoos or a liquid hair cleanser or witch hazel. It is a bit tedious to cleanse your hair this way but if it keeps you from getting a sore throat, it should be worth it. The dry shampoos can be used with a fluffy mit, the others are applied with cotton and rubbed from the scalp down to the ends of the hair. One thing you can do all winter to promote hair gloss is to brush your locks vieorously and often. Use a good hair brush and remember to clean it frequently. HOUSEHOLD HINTS Thin hamburger patties may be broiled below moderate heat; dot with butter and season with salt and pepper just before serving. Thin raw onion rings or cucumber relish are a delicious accompaniment toi these patties. Children need to have three to four glasses of milk every day; adults need two or more. Any milk not taken in liquid form may be consumed in other ways in puddings, on cereals, in soups, in sherbets and so forth. Nail polish remover can be used in an emergency to wipe off paint spatters from bathroom or kitchen tiles. Next time you bake kidney beans try serving them with skillet-browned sausage and cole slaw.
