NBA liciiuty Keillor If you've recently had faded hair tinted a solid silver or steel gray, you may be asking yourself what make-up and clothes colors you can now wear. The answer, in general, is to continue wearing Ihc same colors that were good on you before your hair began to turn. This doesn't mean the shades will bo identical. You may need deeper or more intense shades of the same colors that you wore before. ^ Pick up your eye color more consciously than you ever did, especially for blue eyes that may have faded. Colors near your face thai bring out eye beauty are the colors to. look for. Match foundation and powder to your skin tone, though blondes may wish to add a little deeper wnrinth. Former brunels should beware of yellowish and so-called "mmtiin" shades. They are wise, instead, to strive for greater clarity. Former redheads should stay with the creamy ivory they always used, avoiding yellows or pinks. All types should avoid lipsticks containing yellow or orange. In clothes, all types should avoid rods or groons that are yellowish Bcigo should not bo yellowish. Grays should be really gray, not beige-gray. Black may be very depressing on you unless enlivened with nn intense color that brings out your eye and skin beauty.

Of course not. We've nourished the old-fashioned idea that an unmarried woman is, an old maid. And a lot of unmarried women accept the picture as their fate, even though it is Long outdated. These women, Influenced by that dreary picture, are willing to settle for just any job they think -they | can hold for ycnra even though it] doesn't make them exert their best efforts and offers little in the Way of advancement. So the first thing they give up is their chance to find satisfying work that makes them feel their lives are being put to good use. Then they reason that since they haven't a husband, having a. rc'l home is out of the question. They settle for a dreary room or a lurn- islicd apartment. Whereas, If they put their minds to it, they could in time choose their own furniture and even manage to buy a imall home of 1'ioip'own. If they think of themselves as "old mu.ds" they probably miss out on still another opportunity to make their lives interesting and worthwhile. They leave all community jobs to their married sisters. By doing that they fall to make a real place for themselves hr their communities and fall to make themselves useful to others, Years ago women "missed by marriage" may have had to settle for very little out of life. But they don't ]*••<•(» 1o tirtay. And they don't unless they think of themselves as old maids that life has passed by. Mrs. W. D. Patton Is Hostess to Club Mrs. William D.
