BY TRACY ADRIAN I F YOU are one of many of us who do most of the chores around the house you'll be happy to hear about these utility gloves that will protect your hands •while you are working at the most chafing of jobs. The gloves are beautifully made with the painstaking care that goes into those used by doctors.

We think them quite a boon to homemakers. LADIES EAGLE BOOSTERS The Ladies Eagle Booster club met for the annual Christmas party recently.
