If exercises and diet are doing their work for flabby upper arms slowly or not at all, don't despair. Results will begin to show soon. But meanwhile, they can be kept under cover. Short sleeved dresses are a bane for older women. In most cases involving nonperfect upper arms, they shouldn't be worn at all. Inex- . pensive• house dresses are designed: with no sleeves or short sleeves, in • most cases. j Avoid tiiem at all costs. They cut Into the flesh of the arm or under the arm and make a bad situation look even worse. JH you can't seem to find any cotton house dresses with sleeves, hedge a little. Get a jumper or cobbler-apron dress and wear it over a long-sleeved shirt or blouse. Make your own, if you have to. For housework, you don't Vr wrist length sleeves, as they just have to be rolled up. Seek out below-elbow sleeves, preferably with a slight puff. If you can make your own, design three-quarter sleeves that are cut with an upward slant, with the point, on the outside. This will streamline the lower arm and conceal the upper. For that all-too-seldom evening dress, full-length sleeves by all means. Nothing is more formal and elegant looking than a long, fuU sieeve. £ ound Only at Whitsitt's City-country suit advertised in August Harper's Bazaar.

Style Choice Is Wide This Fall Br ALICIA HART NEA Beauty Editor A gal who is about to take off (or school this (all has a lavish selection of luggage at the command of her purse. Variety of conception, texture and coloration in this fall's luggage means that she can be as luggage-stylish at she Is clothes- stylish. The basic wardrobe of luggage a gal should be building toward will Include many of the following: a train box or fitted cosmetics case for toiletries and weekend trips; an overnight or weekend bag for hand luggage on a long trip or to hold clothes on a shorter jaunt; a Pullman or wardrobe case that uses hangers for dresses; a hatbox or shoe-and-hatbox; a .traveling garment bag for gals who love those frothy skirts; a trunk to ship outer-season clothing ahead or wardrobe trunk for suitcase living. LJ Ruth Millet* Never Con Tell How Marriage Will Work A high school teacher who has followed the lives of her former students with concerned interest after they have left her classroom asks: "How can a girl know that the young man she falls in love with and wants marry is going to have the qualities that will make him a good husband and father? "I'm talking about the so-called .little things. How aoet sne know that he will be the kind of father who will take his son hunting with him? "How does she know If he will have affectionate regard for her parents? "How does she know if he will be the kind of father who will take over the children when she needs a few hours of rest? "How does she know if he will take pride In the things she does well and encourage her to make some kind of life of her own? "How does she know if he will be strong when she needs his strength? "A girl falls in love with a boy— but how does she know how he will react to the problems of everyday living? The answer is, of course, that she doesnt. And neither does anyone else. That is why it is so foolish, for parents to think that a girl is making a "good" marriage, simply because a young man has money or position behind him. It is also why it is foolish for parents to carry on because they think their daughter is not making a "good" marriage. A good marriage is made up of so many things. And ho one knows, looking at a young man, what kind of a husband and father he will become. L*« Immrt Thhtyt" TWO NEW ROTTER GIRLS Now yowt fc« CM fed * young as you do.

SONS SHOES With her immediate needs from among these (irmly in her mind, a school gal Is then faced with a fine array of luggage styles. Color is the first choice she must make. Feminine shades are practical as well as popular,this fall because the scuff-proof coatings and plastics are easy to keep clean and wear well. Pink, mint and gray rank high tills fall. White is still a good choice in either rawhide or synthetics. Bright plaids appear in all styles from giant duffel bags to traveling garment bags. Many gals like to match a case of a solid color to the predominant tones in a plaid bag for a nice coordinated look. Most gals .';now what their favorite coat colors or suit fabrics are. For luggage that will stay coordinated for four years, this taste should stay in mind. Some gals will never be the needlework type, however cute it may appear on the shelf. Styles offer possibilities for expressing preference, too. There are classically square lines or the newest in rounded molded luggage. The European look, made light of weight and durable by American manufacturing, is a good bet for the gal who likes antique china. The smooth glossy look in molded Fiberglas with aluminum binding is for the gal who prefers shiny plastic. Fittings Inside have been subjected to a little designer know- how, too.
