If You Think Business Women Aren't Glamorous, Shop in Palm Springs It's a 'Sndp' to Record Holiday! AUSTIN (Minn.) HERALD Off. 3, 1956 By DOROTHY ROE Associated Press Women's Editor Anyone who thinks businesswomen aren't glamorous ought to inspect the current crop of feminine storekeepers in Palm Springs, Calif. j 1 recently paused at this gilt- edged desert resort for a weekend en route back to New York after several weeks of California headline hunting and I'm still blinking from the dazzling lineup of local lady merchants. The night I arrived, Mama Gabor and two of her three famous daughters were holding open house and making merry to celebrate the opening of Mama's new boutique shop, named simply Jolie Gabor. The Viennese Mrs. Gabor has been doing right well selling jewelry in ,New York for come time now. Then there's Marion Davies, who owns Palm Springs' oldest and most renowned hotel, the Desert Inn—all 30 acres of it- but has announced she is tearing it down next year and turning the land over to the city for a parking lot. The astute Marion plans to keep a front strip of the property and put in one of the most glittering shopping centers in the West—a feat which will make her probably the top lady merchant of the Coast. Madelyn Fio Rito, the striking brunette who trained the girl and boy guides in the United States Pavilion at the Brussels World's Fair, also has a new Palm Springs boutique, where she sells the fashionable goodies she gathers up in her periodic trips abroad. Andrea Leeds Howard, former glamor girl of the films, has a dress shop too, as does Mrs. Harry Joe Brown. Carolyn Jones and Linda Dar „ Waters Hotel, and Claudette Colbert is a stockholder in Bing Crosby's trailer park. Mrs. Alan Ladd keeps a watchful eye on her husband's Palm Springs hardware store, and Mrs. Bob Hope takes an avid interest in Bob's real estate business. Lucille Ball appears regularly to check the customers at husband Desi Arnaz's Western Hills Hotel, about 12 miles out of Palm Springs, where film luminaries fight for tables. Legion Auxiliary Holds Dinner Party The LeRoy American Legion Auxiliary met for a Christmas dinner Tuesday. Program chairman, Mrs. Kent Vatne, introduced selections by JoAnn Jones, accompanied by Janet Jones; a skit by Mrs. Roger Fister and Mrs. Sidney Fister; a Christmas reading by Mrs. A. M. Wells.

Koopals Celebrate 25th Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Case Koopal, Lyle, celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary Sunday. Open house was held at their farm home, west of Lyle, with Mr. and Mrs. Jack By KAY SHERWOOD The derision to make some of 'your Christmas decorations is its- jually bolstered by the presence of children who are old enough to want a hand in the fun.,Picturew- que props can be made from simple materials, with results pleasing to all. When the fireplace Is outfitted for the holidays or the entryway is decked, don't fail to snap the picture in color, to capture t h e spirit of the holidays, and the handiwork of a very proud designer. Besides being a fine record of how the house and artist looked Jin '58, a snapshot tucked into thank-you notes can be a post-Christmas treat for dear friends or family. Bright with red, green and white and not too difficult to make are a Santa-sit-by-the-fire and holiday greetings spelled out in lollipops over a fireplace or doorway. Basic ingredients are 14 lollipops, a grocery carton, gift wrapping paper or colored shelf paper, cellulose and plastic tape. Merry Christmas lollipops are made by covering the 14 candy suckers with clear cellulose. Use red plastic tape, cut in 1%-inch strips, to form one letter on the front of each lollipop. Spell out the greeting. Tape the suckers about two inches apart to a length of red ribbon and tape or thumbtack into position.

Give him blue star eyes, a Christmas tree ball nose and a fluffy beard made from cotton or white sashee ribbon bows. The body is red paper taped or pasted around the box and marked with a black plastic or paper belt. A cone-shaped, red paper hat about 12 inches tall trimmed with cotton or ribbon bows caps the figure. If there's a camera fan in the house, he will be equipped with all kinds of film, bulbs, cameras and directions. For your own peace of mind, and I speak from experience, I'd suggest you quietly take your own pictures with a simple, box-type camera; the newer ones can literally be aimed and shot. All you need to remember is to coordinate the bulbs with the film type (color or black and white) and to check the recommended working distance from subject to lens.
