SHOE REPAIR Workmanship Guaranteed MEZZANINE FLOOR Child Artist Writes Own Stories, Illustrates Them IJy MAE SAINDERS Billie Carol Cierley. 10-yeur-old | artist, who has hr-on drawing .since she was 4 years old, writes her own storlra just to illustrate them. .Many chlldron are clpvor enough to draw, Ijiit Billie Carol has a fund of clover ideas to draw upon as her work is rich in humor and originality. When she was G years old, .she made a. cat calendar with her cuts, Jinx, a hlack ftline, and Pumpkin, a yellow one, as the models. Xow at the :\Kf of 10. and being more adult, she has an all-American girl calendar with ;i beauteous miss ns the subject to illustrate the various months. JUllie Carol doesn't spend all her time reading the comics created by other cartoonists. She makes her own She also draws little piirl dress fashions that indicate a modish pencil, also. "Juily Itnin" She has books and books of comics of which the heroine is one Judy Bum. whose exploits, declare Billie Carol's mother closely approximate those of one little artist. Billie is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. \V. K. Cierley, .'!f>li lOast Casa T .,0111.1 Drive, and her parents have keen interest in the art development of their youngest child. Ivlh parents have always had an amateur love of art, having been art editors of their respective high school annuals. Beyond their critical evaluations and what she has learned in public schools. Billie Carol has not been to art school. "\\V IKIVI' not tried 1o tench her as she seemingly is full of ideas and we 1'ei-l thai it is l»'s| to lei her develop naturally." said .Mrs. Cierley. Her first work at the age of 4 was priming from her wooden blocks, and when she was int roduced to nursery , rhymes, her first impulse was to illustrate them and her ideas took Hie form of humor. She wrote the story of King ]>con, a tale about two lions before she was 10, and illustrated it with many comic strokes going into the pictorial yarn. Works With I'enrils She works mostly with pencils and crayons, and Billie Carol says, "I'm not much good at water colors." She says her sister Ann, who is in high school, is good with colors and Shirley is a good artist, too. Billie Carol not long ago suffered a broken arm. It was her right arm. She .suffered more because she wasn't able to draw, but she didn't put up with the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune very long, because she learned to draw with her left hand. Her copy book- shows that her work done under this handicap .soon emerged in a free and easy stylo that is typical of her natural performance. The only exhibit there has been of her work was at a meeting of the Western Writers at Tula re when her grandmother, Mrs. Jack Cox, exhibited the drawings Walt Disney Fan Billie Carol's favorite artist Is Walt Disney and she hopes someday to create just as proficially for just as many people as he does. Her talent was first publicly recognized by Miss I/orene Lowe, teacher at Beard.sley where Billie Carol first attended school, and her gifts have also drawn attention from her teachers at Union Avenue School where she is in the class of Mrs. Ecalene Parker. Billie Carol is modest about her talent and says she likes to draw pictures for her playmates wheil she is asked. She makes her own paper dulls, and all in all she's a handy playmate to have around because she never runs out of ideas. Her work exemplifies the enjoyment an amateur artist tan have with brush and paints and her talent indicate that there should be growth and improvement possible to her with further study and experience.

YOUNG ARTIST—Bakersfield is producing at least one young artist of talent in Billie Carol Cierley, 10-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. R. Cierley, 356 East Casa Loma Drive, who'd rather make her own paper dolls than to cut out those made by others. Her talents run to illustrating her own stories, making her own comic books. She sketched this horse in a few minutes in the studio of The Callfornian.

You can always be sure of this — the coffee in the Hills Bros, vacuum-packed glass jar and the Hills Bros, red glassine-lined carton is exactly the same blend of the finest coffees obtainable. Our registered trade-marks, the familiar "Arab" and "Red Can Brand," which appear on both containers is our guarantee of this. Although there's no difference between the Hills Bros. Coffee in these two types of containers, there is a difference between Hills Bros. Coffee and other coffees. One of the reasons is because of the way Hills Bros. Coffee is roasted . . . a little at a time instead of in bulk. This exclusive Hills Bros, process—*Controlled Roasting—eliminates variations in flavor because it prevents under roasting or over roasting. The result is that every pound of Hills Bros. Coffee you buy has the same matchless flavor. *> Since the Wartime Package is not vacuum-packed, for freshness' sake, buy only one package at a time.

IT'S GOTTA BE GOOD if you're in "the know" about What's What in Fashion this season. . . . It's gotta be neat and tri*n iiiul well-made-. It's gotta be slim, and smooth, and of impeccably good taste . . . it's GOTTA BE GOOD! * * • LLTRA-VIOLET IS THE TREATMENT in an original Nathalie Niooli of the finest, sheerest Forrstman wool. The neck is round and low, like one of Renoir's young ladies, and there's a little band of cut-out work around it that's faintly reminiscent of eyelet embroidery. The skirt is gored and slim, with just a mere suggestion of a peplum over each hip hone, with a repeat on the cut-out work. You'll love the sleeves, which nre just "right" for all those wonderful bangle-brac- lets you've been collecting nil summer. A narrow, bright gold belt finishes this costume that will assuredly make you someone's ray of sunshine. You can see it in the October 1 edition of Vogue. * * * A CHECK FOR COLLEGE is imperative. MISS PATTY ROBINSON, the charming young daughter of the Les Robinsons of Stockdale, has chosen a delightful black-and- white Shepherd check wool by P-velyn Alden to steer her on the right course at Stanford this coming semester. The distinctive detail on this " original exclusive is the self- ruffles at all the most strategic spots ... at the three- quarter length sleeves, at the diagonal pockets, across the bodice where the raglan sleeves are set In. The skirt has that soft front fullness and straight back that's so N 7 EW this season. The high round neck has a flat double black velvet bow at the front, and 10 tiny buttons down the back. It's really the stuff that dreams are made of, and Patty's sure to inspire plenty of them in her Evelyn Aldcn from Egger's. * * • DEPENDABLY DEVASTATING is a deep, deep black to be worn when you want to look sophisticated. Try it in a two-piece black crepe that is sure to be compliment-winning and confidence-giving. The subdued gleam of little sequins all over the front of the top, the cluster of more sequins near each shoulder, the darted gored bodice—all say nice things about your figure. The skirt is slim, of course, with many, mnny gores. The soft collared V-neckline makes you KNOW you look pretty. * * * GREY IS ELEGANT when it's found in a soft wool-and- rabbit's hair street dress that's straight and slim and smart. Buttons all the way down in shiny silver like a policeman's, and boasts two big patch pockets with a button each. The sleeves are right for gloves, the neckline is a soft, collared V, and the dress is the last word In Fall smartness, with a flair of well-bred styling. * * * You'll look wonderful . . . vou'll feel marvelous nfter you've contributed to the 1944 War Chest. Egger's,
