Give Nails Their Due BY AUCIA HART NEA Beauty Editor Toenails can give a lot of trouble if they're not properly groomed. They never really look like a beauty asset, as do fingernails, however carefully they're done. But they can be disabling if they're neglected, so beware. They must be cut straight across to prevent the possibility of in- growing, a very painful condition. Don't attempt to do this with garden shears. If you don't have pro- per toenail scissors that are tough enough to do the job, buy a heavy- duty toenail nipper at the drugstore for a modest price. If your toen*ils are tough, and jagged after being trimmed! they should be filed and buffed to protect your stockings. Toenails are great dirt catchers. To get it all out, soak your fe«t in a basin or tub of hot water, soap and any bath product that's soft- ^ening. Then use the fingernail fil« to clean out the dirt. It's worth a visit to a foot doctor if you have repeated trouble with one particular nail. It may turn out to be your shoes or it may turn out to be an ancient splintet of nail that's causing the trouble. Dorcas Circle Has Program And Party An old-fashioned quilting party was held following the program meeting of Dorcas Circle of Beacon Baptist Church Tuesday. The circle met at the home of Mrs. Homer Porter. Mrs. Joe Whisenhunt led the opening prayer with Mrs. JackiRushing giving the lesson, "How We Should Dive." Mrs. J. J. Johnson led the dismissal prayer preceding the party This is the time to check over last spring's .wardrobe and decide or subtractions and additions. Last year's clothes have a way of carrying on in those clothes bags and getting themselves all wilted. So try them on to be sure they're still becoming. If they're not, gt rid of them.
