6 iuJsJay, May 4,1965 Redlands Daily Pacts Modern Mothers To Have Their Day On Mother's Day, Sunday, mothers throughout the land mil be honored with religious ceremonies, happy family reunions, long distance calls, flowers and sifts. Surrounded with perennial idealism, these modern observances have their foimdation in ancient customs. The Greeks and Romans paid homage to Cybelc, or Rhea, the Great Mother of the Gods, with the festival of Hilaria on the Ides of March, at which time they brought gifts to her temple. Later transformed into a festival glorifymg "Mother Church," the holiday finally emerged in England and Scotland as Moth- ermg Sunday, a special day in mid-L*nt set aside for children to visit their mothers and bring them some little present. In 1914, President Wilson p r o- claimed the second Sunday in May as Mother's Day, a day for public expression of love and reverence for the mothers of our country. As the holiday approaches, let's take a closer look at the! Uie last published figures of the 1960 Census of the U.S. Population, of the total 179,326,000 Uv- ing Americans, 33.7 per cent, or 53.813.000, were mothers or grandmothers. Of this group, 24.164.000, or 22 per cent, were mothers of children under 18 years of age, while tlie motliers tlieniselves ranged in ages from .2 per cent under 15 to .1 per cent over 45. The largest group, or 34.7 per cent, were between the ages of 20-24, which was also the average age for mothers bearuig their first cliild. The Women's Bureau of the U.S. Department of Labor reported that of the 24,164,000 motliers with children under 18 years of age, 8,000,000, or nearly one-third, were working mothers, the highest number ever recorded! Their average age was figured at 38 years, slightly below the 40 year average for all working mothers.

Good grooming is the first step in covering up imperfect legs. Many neglect their legs and feet and the result often is flaky, scaly skin. Keep legs free from hair and smooth on a softening lotion after bathing. Apply this with a massaging motion from toes up to the knees with the palms of both hands. You will fmd this soothes aching muscles and also stimulates circulation. Shorter skirts and the approach of summer call for special knee cai-e. Rough, discolored knees look awkward.

Apply a coating of baby cream or moisturizing lotion after each bath and exercise by walking up and down stairs or doing deep knee bends. You will find this aids the over-all appearance of your legs as as your kness. Here are some tricks you can do with stockings to camouflagn less than perfect legs and ankles: To make large ankles look smaller — wear dull-finish seam_ed stockings and keep the seams straight. Wear dark shades and also avoid bright or light-colored shoes and especially those with ankle straps. These always call attention to your feet and legs as do jeweled or intricately designed shoes.

Charles fo the Ritz smooths the way for this summer-bare beauty with "Sun-Bronze" tanning lotion slipped on from tip to toe. Delicately, it gives protective shelter from the harsh effects of sun and windbum as it gradually turns you to a sun- kissed golden girl. Embroidered into the folds of this lotion is golden glow on their bodies the first days out on the beach. This season "Sun-Bronze" has a new sundress — all yellow and speckled with bronze, orange and brown ui a plastic tube.

Extremely nai-row skirts also accentuate thin legs. "Table Top" Art New Status Symbo MiUions of people are milling through art museums annually. Over half-a-million visited New York's Museum of Modern Art in just the last six months of 1964. Multi-thousands more are buying art of their own. Sears- Roebuck's art sales just hit the two-million-dollar mark. Even Woolworth's is selling original art (at around S37.95). Another 10 million amateurs, poised at make-shift easels, are turning out their own inimitable canvasses. Art clearly has become America's Number One status symbol. Topping this trend toward more and more art in everyday life is a ragey new form called "Table-Top" art. It's not as zany as "pop." It's not as illusory as "op." It's art in a much more fashionable, if saner sense. And it fits right into decorating like a special wonderful accessory. Just like its more imposing predecessors. "Table-Top" art is all original oils or water colors devoted to a variety of subjects: flowers, fruits, landscapes, still-lifes, sea scenes, animals, or abstractions. Its singular advantage over the mu suem-scale art is that "Table- Top" is small and inexpensive You can afford to indulge in a dozen canvasses (they cost from SIO.OO to S45.00, framed), and scatter them all over your house, or clump them in a sort of "art nouveau" end table arrangement.

Choose either the clear "Sun-Bronze" or tlie one with tlie Deep Tone tint added. The latter is perfect for those who require that extra dash of be a welcome one. Bland tables are riots of color now: colored linens, colorful art, colored glassware, plunk at each place. There seems no end to the variety this simple new little idea can produce. Not the least is a refined uncluttered arrangement, for an awkward end table, of merely a lovely glass vase, a single flower, and a piece of art. Another is the ability to casually unbalance a monotonous mantle by pairing candlesticks at one end; staggering small art the rest of the length. There's no question about it.

CITRUS LAURA CREATURA Phone 793-2555 REDLANDS Give Hands As Much Care As Face A woman's hands reveal personality as much as facial expression, eyes, hair style and clothes. Because hands are always on display, Pacquin experts recommend that hands should be given as much care as most women give the face. .A survey also indicates that the way a woman cares for her hands is typical of how she feels about herself generally. It was observed that women who use face cream regularly also use body lotion and hand creams faithfully for skin grooming. In: contrast, women who apply ^ ofifacial cream infrequently apply; "Table-Top" art is to use thej hand care products "only when they remember." or when handsi "chap and hurt" from seasonal neglect. More than 70 per cent of American women have dry skin on their hands, according to the experts.
