I thought I would pick up some paper things for investment, what do you think? -B.G.G., Franklin, Ind. By "paper" I assume you mean postcards, greeting cards, sheet music, newspapers, magazines, land grants and a host of other things. Some persons have been predicting this for several years but as a fad it hasn't really caught the collectors' fancy. If you are interested in paper items you could make a good collection now because it is very plentiful. However, the same rules apply as to other collecting — buy only what you like, select the best you can afford and don't expect any profit on your investment except personal enjoyment. I like old things and am J ust beginning to collect a ew pieces. Can you recommend a good general information book that I could use? -L.L., Fort Worth, Tex. One of the best books I have found for beginning collectors is "A Fortune in the Junkpile" by Dorothy H. Jenkins. This book is almost an introduction to many fields of collecting. You will want to add more specialized books to your library as your collection expands. A check with your local library or a knowledgeable dealer in an­ tiques will help you in selecting more advanced books in your field. Have fun. At a recent antique show, we saw a Hires root beer mug with what we thought was a very high price on it. Are they realty that scarce? C.W. - Wichita. Kan. This could have been a Mettlach mug made by Villeroy and Boch expressly •for the Hires company. Anything with the Mettlach name generally commands a higher price. I recently purchased a "cut glass" decanter for S3S. I knew it was a reproduction but the label read "cut glass from Germany." I later discovered the glass was { tressed pattern with only he small rose in the center cut with a wheel. How do you tell real cut glass? - T.K., Jackson, Mich. Welcome to the club. Almost every collector has had a similar experience. Cut B lass is generally brilliant in ght, sharp to the touch. Get busy and find some good cut f llass to examine. Train your ingers and your eyes to recognize quality before buying another piece. of the touchtone home.; Mrs. Touchtone, Mrs. Herman Henite, grandmother of the bride-to-be and Mrs. Lloyd Thorn, grandmother of the groom-to-be greeted the guests as they arrived.

Some of these beauty tips can be practiced right at home; others are professional secrets that are best left to professionals. A FACIAL MASQUE OUT OF YOUR REFRIG. Mix the yoke of an egg, 5 drops of olive oil, 3 drops of fresh lemonJuice, apply to face and neck. Rinse after Mmin. It will leave your face feeling tighter and fresher. Here's where you need professional help Without setting too technical, the simple hair shampoo thai most women do at home is beat left to the professional. Most drug store shampoos contains an excessive amount of alkali, what the chemists call a "high PH". But hair is acid and should be shampooed with a' solution with a relatively low PH. Too much alkali is very harmful to your hair. Your professional has access to superior low PH shampoos made only for salons ana not available to the mass market.
