Magnificent, huge, arresting-- hese are the adjectives that best [escribe the smartest jewelry pieces f tin's winter. Does it strike awe and fear into the heart of your UN- magnificent Christmas budget? (Veil, It needn't! The most luxuri- ius looking bracelets and brooches are to be hed for amazingly small sums--because all that glitters is not gold, or even diamonds and rubies. Just you go out and look around the shops--and gloat. If you have a very little bit to spend, go in for sports jewelry. You'll find massive .wooden brace- ets of all kinds, shapes, swirled, carved, dull or polished--sometimes combined with one of those new ong bar pins to match. They look particularly smart with woolen sports dresses and such. Big wooden clips or Initials for handbags will go over in a large way with S'our sophisticated friends. We confess we were lured by thoae immense new rings carved out of Crystal or out of ruby-colored glass.. If you have a friend who loves to trail around in dinner pajamas, and who effects'long cigaret holders, here is the gift for her! Gifts Around §S. You will no doubt see plenty of rhinestone jewelry for a couple of dollars, but you really ought to spend more and get the kind that s finely carved and well set. You vill still see lots of those long elaborate earrings in rhinestones that are a sort of party dress requirement with some people, but the newer, smarter ones are shaped like lalfmoons and look like the clips on he ears. Newer still are the hair ornaments in rhinestones--little stars, crescents, long bars, even mposing diadems to wear across ·our head. Any girl who goes out a- arcing to the best places will adore ·on for thinking of these. If you are not of the young, up- and-coming generation you will no doubt be horrified at some of the larbaric-looking bracelets that are eing shown around and about--but ake our word tor it, they are tremendously smart just now. Big vide ones in antique gold are especially In favor, .set .with coral, ;urquoise, or ohyxi-irreal or simulated, according to your'purse. Or you. may be intrigued by the Victorian ijangle variety, jingling with china salts in pastel shades. Since the whole success of a gown this year may depend upon the jewelry that is worn with it, it will repay you to go over mentally the wardrobes of your friends when you select their gifts. "Collar and cuff" jewelry is stunning on a plain sophisticated frock, for instance. Some of these are fashioned of grosgrain ribbon and metal beads, others are made entirely of wooden beads--and they are unusual. You have no doubt heard of cul- ture pearls--the pearls they trick the poor little oyster into making by putting a grain of sand inside him and irritating him to the pfint where he has to do something about it. They have the same lovely luster and tone as the natural pearls (how could they help it), but cost much less. In fact, you can get a short necklace of these pearls for about 535. Rings and brooches are even less^and you can still brag about possessing real pearls. Another luxurious gift to give a lady is.a small clip-watch, with or without jewels. Later she can have it fashioned Into a bracelet if she gets tired of the novelty of clipping it on her dress or handbag. Classes hi typewriting, bookkeeping and .commercial arithmetic were offered to officers in the CCC by East Central Oklahoma Teachers college.
