Upkeep Is Beauty, Too By ALICIA HART NEA Beauty Editor Most teens are more clever than their elders admit about stretching a tiny clothing budget a long way. It is from teen-agers that half of the novel beauty and fashion ideas come. Shrewd gals raid the five-and- ten and odd boxes around the house to find what -they- need. They ' improvise and invent in ways that are pretty witty as well as pretty. But sometimes, finding that this is not enough, teeners cut the budget in unsound ways. No gal likes to put the price of a new pair of high socks into something that won't show — she thinks. So shoes go unrepaired, bras wear down to the slimmest frazzie and underpinnings tatter unreplaced. Cleaning, repairing, replacing. These are the investments that tire the soul.

Ifl — One of the best known tracking dogs of the Roynl Canadian Mounted Police has died after devoting B of his 10 years to the service. Bobby, part German shepherd and part Labrador retriever, took part In hundreds of hunts for criminals and mlrslns persons. In his last job with the Mounties lie found two prison fugitives after nine hours on the trail. A wedding gown that magically becomes a short evening dress is nice for a tiny budget. But If you're able, a real dress will be very satisfying to you and as a family tradition, used by cousins, sisters-in-law and daughters. that can be offered to make thest payments fun. Undone, they , make a young woman look sloppy and cheap. Done, they are the meticulous mark of a well-groomed high school girl, or young married woman.
