The woman who said that is probably c o nsid- ering u n derpriv- ileged by ,m a n v of her friends and acqiminta D c e s. Kuth M!Ilett For, although her husband makes a good income, they don't have many of the luxury items that are fnst becoming regarded as necessities by medium income Amen- cans. They don't have an automatic washer and dryer. They don't have a television set. They don't have a dishwasher. They don't have home freezer. And they don't have two cars in their garage. Instead of spending their money on these modern-day "essentials' they take wonderful trips. The husband never misses a meeting — whatever part of the country Et happens to be—if it -Is important to his work. They have a collection of beautiful pictures to remind them of the places they have been and the things they have seen. Their house ig full of .magazines and books. And they are wonderfully generous with both money and time when it means that they car. do something for friends. In short, they have had the cour- aee to spend their income on the Mrs. Hill Elected Head Of Beacon WMA Beacon Baptist Women's Missionary Association met Friday evening with 18 members and two visitors present.

Rounding Out Takes Time By ALICIA HART NTA Beauty Editor A girl just beginning her teens writes of her discomfort over her undeveloped figure. Most of her friends look like young ladies and she feels awkward because she doesn't yet. Both sides of this problem are common: the girl who seemingly Lags behind her classmates and the one who develops before her friends. This is completely natural. Just as one girl's height shoots up when she's in the sixth grade and another doesn't grow until she's starting high school, so do girls round out at different ages. The embarrassment concerns not being completely "average," which no one ever is. There are no them from expecting other families to spend on the things THEY consider important.

Black braid sewn along the edge of the suspenders will set oft any color (blue, cocoa, gray, red) nicely. Next, dot the suspenders with large and small sparkling jet buttons. Add four jet buckles and your new school wardrobe pet Is complete. Remove the suspenders, add another petticoat, and you've a ne\'/, graceful party skirt for your dressy velveteen blouse. Another simple sewing task is that of making a weskit. In just 46 minutes you can have a different-looking weskit to complement your matador pants or Bermuda shorts.
