raman GUESS WHATI "The Reluctant Dragon" is coming to town. ine children's play, already presented by the Minneapolis Junior League to several Twin Cities audiences, will to perform-' ed twice Jan. 10 at the Austin High School Auditorium. Curtain times will be 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m., under the direction of Don Stolz. " A ^« ndeF Auguslus >" the Reluctant Dragon, will be played by Mrs. Clifford Ashmun. Twenty cast members, including Mrs. Edward Schlampp and Mrs. George D. Dayton III, their production crew and several husbands "pressed into service for the day" will travel via chartered bus. The appearance of the Junior League is sponsored by the Austin branch of the American Association of University Women. Miss Thena Sorkill is general chairman, assisted by Mrs. Ernest Jones, who has charge of tickets. Mrs. Jay Daane and Miss Priscilla Hartley are handling publicity and Miss Lorna Bates will supervise the ushers. An advertising flyer done by Stan Whittemore, grade school art supervisor, will be distributed to Austin grade school students and tickets will be available through the grade schools. Mothers of preschoolers may contact Mrs. Merril Rolfson for tickets which also will be available at the door. * * * * AS AIRY AS a petal and as fresh as an April morning. That's the way Carita's angel hair style has been described. As you can see, a ring • of soft curls circles wide around the head to fluff above the ears and at the very top, a halo of bangs. The stylist says it's a charming hair-do that slims the chin and spotlights the eyes. * * * * BEIGE LEADS the popularity list in colors for the home ?t" this year. That's followed by sandalwobd, pink, oyster white, light green, turquoise, light blue and yellow. Dark green, popular during the middle 50s, is No. 20 on the color parade and light gray has slumped to ninth place. Dark blue has been consistently in last place since 1946, says Faber Birren, color consultant who compiled the chart based on actual records of consumer buying and demand. And what has happened to red? Isn't that anyone's favorite anymore? » •:« * ft _ WINNER OF the Best Hatted Award is Rosalind Russell, vivacious star of stage, screen and television. Adam Gimbel, president of Saks Fifth Avenue, presented the Golden Hat Award in New York on behalf of the Millinery Institute of America. Roz has been proclaimed the best halted woman in the world for 1958. Five hundred fashion editors voted for her and after the award was made, the actress said, "Hatlessness is old hat!" Last year's winner was Prmcess Grace of Monaco. IF YOU DISLIKE burning or tearing MBM up those pretty Christmas cards you re- Miss Russell ceived this season, 'don't do it. Two nuns in the art department of a small girls' college in California would love to have them. The Immaculate Heart College has become nationally famous for its unique style of art founded and fostered by Sister Magdalen Mary, IHM, chairman of the art department, and Sister Mary Corita, IHM, professor of art. The two sisters specialize in use of broken bits of pottery, old jewelry, scraps of cloth, magazines and other bric-a-brac to create beautiful mosaics and other works of art. The sisters have let it be known that they can use the lovely art that decorates so many Christmas cards. Some will be used for their decorations, others for special designs. The National Housing Center, 1625 L St., NW, Washington 6, D. C. will act as a collection point and trans-shipper of your old Christmas cards. 31 * » :? TIME FLIES and April will be here before you know it, so start giving a little thought to the Miss Austin Pageant if you or any of your friends are eligible. Contestants for the Miss Austin title must reach their ]8th, but not their 28th birthday by Sept. 1. The winner will again receive a wardrobe and scholarship and ot course, go on to the Miss Minnesota contest in May at St. Paul. You think about it and if you know a pretty and talented young lady who would be eligible, encourage her to enter the pageant. Entries will open in the near future say the three pageant cochairmen, Roger Larson, David Owen and Joseph Stenger. * • * » THEY SAY good things come in small packages—and some of them might weigh about 7 pounds, 9'.i ounces! The Ray Hewitts, 1306 W. College, would say so. Julie Jo, their first child, was born at St. Olaf Hospital Dec. 29 and a welcome addition to the Hewitt clan she is, too! For 10 generations the Hewitts have fathered sons, and Julie Jo along with daughters of Ray's two brothers, are the first girls born into the family in the 10-year span. Ray is an employe at the Austin State Bank. The Hewitts will take Julie Jo to Clear Lake, Iowa, for a home folks' inspection before long. They aren't worried a bit but that she'll pass. * * * * SANDRA ANDERSON will add some traveling to her activities at the University of Minnesota this winter. She's a member of the University Theater Touring Co. which will make appearances throughout the midwest during the winter quarter, presenting Richard Sheridan's "The Rivals." Sandy, who has the role of the harpischordist, will return to the U Sunday has rehearsals. The first performance is set for Jan. 8, at the university and on Jan. 9, the company travels to Vermillion, S. D. Sandy, a former Miss Austin, has spent the holidays with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Lester Anderson, 1015 Johnson.

Often, though, they neglect their growing feet. Years later they suffer for it. Choose school and dress- up shoes with a snug, well-fitting arch and plenty of toe room. Also, this is an age to avoid spike heels, both for comfort and appearance. ANNIVERSARY — Mr, and Mrs. Calvin C. Arthur, Hollandale, observed their 61st wedding anniversary Dec. 26.

By ANN LANDERS Dear Ann: I'm a slightly plump housewife, age 37. Our three children are in school all day and I love to putter around the house, put up strawberry jam, read good books, and even take a nap if I feel like it. I worked for six j years after we married and it's a treat to be able to stay at home and live a leisurely life. Most of the women in the neigh- fa o r h o o d have part • time jobs. Some work from 0 till 5. The other day a friend told me of a part-time job in the neigh- b o r h o o d book store and the salary was $30 a week. My husband thought it Ann Landers would be a "good idea" because we could use the extra money. I turned it down saying I preferred to put up with the sun- split curtains and rather worn furniture and just go along enjoying my unhurried and uncomplicated life. Am I crazy because I have no burning desire for wall • to - wall carpeting and a glassed . in sun porch? Tell me the truth. — C.C.S. Crazy? Not at all. If you like your life as it is why change it? I salute you — your strawberry jam and the sun- split curtains. The world is filled with people who are knocking themselves to pieces to own "better" things. Often they learn too late that the price was higher than they had anticipated — and it wasn't worth it. People can live on less — when they have more to live for. "Farmers always have something to eat" they'd say. "You can always go out and kill a pig or a cow." (Did you ever hear of such nonsense?) Vacation time, nieces and nephews would be sent to us for "fresh country air." Every summer I had kids sleeping on feather quilts on the floor. They weren't interested in helping with the chores or lending a hand in the house. All they wanted was fresh air, afternoons in the hammock and Aunties pies. We worked on a very slim margin of profit, and finally had to give up the farm and move to the city. The moochers made the difference between success and failure. Now, after a few years of city life, the children are begging to go back to the farm. My husband is undecided. How can we protect ourselves from people who make a summer resort out of a farmer's home? — U.D.T. You have a very good writing arm (9 pages) — why not use a little of that energy where it will 1 do some good? Tell your friends; and relatives you're returning to! the soil on a new basis. . .NOi GUESTS WELCOME UNLESS IN-! VITED. If you haven't the backbone to! do this, I suggest you stay in the; city. It will save van expenses —; both ways. j CONFIDENTIAL TO CARRIE: l| have never supported inter-faith i dating. Stick to your own. Mar-i riage presents- enough problems without manufacturing more. CONFIDENTIAL TO HORACE: Bermuda shorts on the street for men? UGH! The knee-cap is the ugliest part of the human anatomy. Why parade it? CONFIDENTIAL TO MARTHA: Tell him if he isn't old enough to ask his mother for his bank book he isn't old enough to get married. A man 28 years of age who gives mama his check and lets her "manage his money" is a poor marriage prospect. Are your parents too strict? You can benefit from the experiences of thousands of teenagers if you read ANN LANDERS' new booklet, "How To Live With Your Parents," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a large, self- addressed, stamped envelope. (Ann Landers will be glad to jhelp you with your problems Send them to her in care of THE HERALD, enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope.)

They're done in shining shades of blue and deep pink and olive green. Household Hints A worn-out glove is pretty hole- less unless it is only the seam that's open. When the fingers wear, retire the pair to kitchen work or for use under rubber gloves when floor scrubbing. With :he fingers cut off, they are good for gardening. Collecting recipes is worthwhile and a lot of fun. After many years a well-used file of recipes can become quite dog-eared. Prevent this by covering the cards with plastic or merely dip them in shellac. Shellac will prevent smudging as well as stiffen the cards, Leather takes kindly to loving care. Shoes respond to polish, repairs made in time and rotation. The way that they respond is to give you far longer service. The shortest way to the shining, well-groomed head is the hair brush. Many women who are otherwise pictures of poise are-careless about this one detail. Frowsy hair destroys the illusion of good looks. Sunday, January 4 PASTORS. Arthur L.
