This letter will explain the true aims of the organization. The service is an organization dedicated to and catering to the tradesmen and people of our city, lmost exclusively. The main function of the service is to stage and direct fashion shows, which are the mainstay of many social affairs in the uptown area and which create an ever increasing demand for garments that are both new and stylish, i Our people are becoming more and more style - conscious due, in part, to the fact that our buying power now exceeds three million dollars annually. The promoters, designers, clubs and organizations have foreseen th,e potentialities of this new market, thus creating a need for a service such as 'Fashion Show Service'. The service will choose models from the ranks of the professionals from the various agencies or obtain the services of the mod els who have become a part of F. S. S., depending on the performance need. i If, by any chance, I have for - gotten to include any information of which you are in doubt concerning the activities and aims of 'Fashion Show Service', please do sot hesitate to contact me.

For instance, a hungry workman in a Brazilian quartz mine piled up some rocks to heat soup and a new color in amerhysts was born. The rocks turned green from the heat of the fire.

BAKER The nation remains one and Indivisible despite the electerate hurricanes that enevlope it every two years. During presidential and mid - term election campaigns spokesmen for each of the great narties paint a picture oi a re nublic in mortal danger which will not survive if the other par ty wins. 1 It was probable before Nov, 2, that the contest for control of Congress would be close, and this fact cave to orators an eloquence that none of the preceding 83 such experiences had proven fatal. leading Republican warned that a victorious Democrat party wnnld rehire all of the ousted "security risks." A leading Democrat spokesman warned that a Republican victory would cause a "fur ther decline" in our prestige abroad, which he saw at an all - time low. Both statements were absurd. NO EFFECT ON FOREIGN RELATIONS What effect will the recent elec tion. have on our foreign rela tions. The answer is fairly ob vious almost none. Both his torical and current evidence would seem to bear this out. After his defeat in 1860, Stephen A. Doug las gave to Abraham Lincoln his fullest support in preserving the Union. The example set by the late Wendell Willkie remains fresh inspiration to millions. The Republican - controlled 80th Con gress supported the Truman doc committee; Miss Rebecca C. Hennie, director of hospital, Pearl W'iliams, treasurer, Pauline Gallimore, . Satarus Hammond, Dr. Normaa H.

Indivisible trine, the Marshall Plan, a new draft law, and othe" such mea sures in the early post - war years, Gov. Dewey came at ouce to for mer President Truman s support on the intervention in Korea. DEMS SUPPORT IKE The Democratic Party Is Interna tional minded. In the recent Con gress, it supported the President again and again in foreign policy matters. The Bohlen confirmation and the defeat of the Bricker amendment are American victories in which they played their full part. They will play it now. Yes, this nation is still united. We have our violent family quarrels, but an enemy will find that we don't really forget that we're a family. Rice Diet Is Aid To Health By now, nearly everyone knows of the remarkable success of many physicians in supplementing their medical prescriptions by a special rice diet in the treatment of high blood pressure (hypertension). Doctors and their high blood pressure patients attest to the excellent and sometimes almost miraculous results obtained by combining proper medical treatment with the famed rice diet for high blood presure. However, the patients complained that the rice diet was too monotonous, offering too little variety of other foods to go with the necessary rice. Now, a rice diet for high blood pressure has been developed which includes a much wider variety of other foods. N Of course, all treatments for high blood pressure should be taken only under the direct care and supervision of a physician. 'Cooking Proves A Popular Chore The most popular household job, with both city and suburban house wives, is cooking. This was shown in a survey made by the Michi gan Experiment Station of the U. S.

But care of children followed cooking as the second most popu lar home job. A lot of men also expressed a liking for washing clothes, especially if they had washing machines.
