WATCHES DIAMONDS 3 WEST STATE This Woman Has the Right Idea She's started early on her spring wardrobe and she's started right. She's buying the new GRAYBAR Electric Sewing Machine on easy terms. And she figures the money she is saving by making her own clothes will pay for the machine. The book shown at the right-(64 pages of helpful information on sewing tricks) was a gilt to her from us. COME IN AND PICK OUT 1'OIiE MACHINE TERMS AS LOW AS PEOPLES GAS AND ELECTIC COMMY Department Hears Talk at Hanford Remley Glass Reviews "Sev- en.Pillars of Wisdom" at Meeting. Characterizing "Seven Pillars of Wisdom" as a marvelous adventure story, and its author, T. B. Lawrence, as the only hero of the World war, Remley J. Glass reviewed the book at the Woman's club literature department meeting Wednesday noon at the Hotel Hanford. Three drafts of the book were prepared, one of which was burned, another stolen, and the third, which had been written from 1919 to 1922, published in 1926 in a subscription edition, according to Mr. Glass. The 750 copies of this edition were given to friends and associates of Lawrence and provision was made that no public edition of the book be made until after his death. Thoroughly English. "The book is thoroughly English," Mr. Glass said. "There is not a single contraction or abbreviation in the text. It is comparable in style to the unabridged and unexpurgated editions of "Arabian Nights." The style reminds one of the older writers. "Lawrence was born of an old English family in 1888 and was 26 years old when the war broke out. He was peculiarly fitted by his education and oriental exeprience for the post that came to him when he was commissioned a lieutenant in the intelligence department at Cairo." Mr. Glass gave, as a background for his review, a description of Arabia and the districts mentioned in the book and a brief account of the history of the Arabian tribes which Lawrence united. "In 1916 the World war was at a low ebb and the Turks had swung down within a few miles of the Suez canal and would have taken the canal without the leadership which Lawrence gave the Arabian tribes," the reviewer said. Revolt in the Desert. "Lawrence sprang into prominence as the leader of the revolt in the desert. A young English intelligence officer, without the consent of iis superiors assumed control of the enterprise." Mr. Glass .outlined the campaign briefly in' which Lawrence interviewed-the Amir of Mecca and finally chose his son, Feisal, as leader of the tribes; the move up the coast from Mecca to Medina and Damascus, the mechanizing of the warfare and teaching the tribesmen to use occidental weapons, the union of the Arabic forces and the taking of Jerusalem and finally the treaty of Versailles which refused to recognize the treaties which Lawrence had made with the Arabs. "It is interesting to realize how Lawrence can in a few words graphically portray the man he seeks to present," the speaker added. "He has wonderful power of description and nature to him is a living, breathing thing. He chooses his-words to convey their sense in a surprisingly effective way," Mr. Glass said. He read passages from the book to illustrate various points and to indicate the style of the author and the material with which the book deals. --o-Feet Tell Secrets · About Personality of Feminine Owner By RUTH COWAN Associated Press Staff Writer CHICAGO, LT)--To gauge a lady's temperament, Andre Perugia of Paris advised Wednesday, look at her feet. The shoe designer who lists roy. ally among his clients gave these pointers: "A woman who is envious and down-at-the-mouth--she generally has a bunion. "A woman who walks pigeon-toed is, ah, dull, even stupid. · "A woman who is fearful, unsuccessful walks a la Charlie Chaplin, toes turned outward. "A woman who is timid and self- conscious places her feet close together when seated. "A woman whc has- a nervous temperament lacks rhythm in her walk. "A woman who has 'sex appeal' walks along evenly, firmly and with poise."

Yes, We Have No Bagpipes, Theme Song of Seniors It might not be so hard to locate kilts or a tarn o'shauter, but bagpipes--that's different. This is the consensus of opinion among property collectors for the senior class play which will be presented by Miss Ruth Irons' students in the high school auditorium this spring. A search for properties generally develops into more or less of a scavenger hunt, but bagpipes--that's something. Does anyone know anyone who knows anyone who has some bagpipes? The Mason City high school seniors would like to know, because the class play this year is Scotch and what is a Scotch play without bagpipes- skirling and droning? Shades of Harry Laudcr and Bobby Burns, of the coming Campbells and the Highland fling, to say nothing of the high road and the low- road--how about some bagpipes ?

"I don't know what to serve for three meals a day." "Buying meat is my problem. I never know what to select." If you have expressed these or similar laments, it will be "money in your pocket" for you to attend the sessions of the Globe-Gazette's cooking school, "Foods on Parade," opening March 17 at the high school auditorium, and which has been expressly planned to aid housewives in their budget and cooking difficulties. That big problem, the selection of meat, is gone into very carefully by Miss Ann Kingsley, who conducts the school, and who is a member of the staff of the National Live Stock and Meat Board and thus is in a position to handle this subject very competently. 'There are 101 different cuts oC meat available, yet the average housewife Is familiar with approximately a half-dozen," says Miss Kingsley, who will describe these various cuts of beef, lamb, pork ai'l veal, and demonstrate the best ways of cooking and serving each. In order that this new knowledge may be put to most immediate and practical use, the meat retailers of the city will co-operate with Miss Kingsley in displaying in their markets the cuts of meat demonstrated each day in the cooking school. An illustrated cook-book, "Our Favorite Meat Dishes," will be presented to every woman attending the opening session. In addition to these recipes, the printed program will contain recipes for the dishes prepared each day. A total of 74 dishes will be demonstrated during the four days of "Foods on Parade." At the close of each session, the foods will be "paraded" before mirrors in exhibition of culinary art. At the close of each session, the food prepared is given away. The following firms are co-operating with the Globe-Gazette in making the cooking school possible: American Crystal Sugar company. Blancbard's Jewelry, Currie-Van Ness company, D. K. Lundberg company, Damon's, Inc., Hermanson Bros. Dairy, Iowa State Brand Creameries,;. Inc:, v Iowa Tea com- paHy/ "J." ".C. 'iPutn 'company, Jaques Manufacturing' company, (K. C.
