The ease, good looks and neatness of a cropped mane have made women get their hair up off their collars. But just because it's bobbed and thinned, the hair can't be left alone. Most women know this and once a week submit themselves to the ministrations of a beauty salon. For hair that doesn't need to be set by a professional and given a permanent now and then, revisits are still necessary. There is nothing more bits-and-pieces-looking than a carefully styled cut that's grown out an inch and been improved by a little home nibbling with a pair of paper shears. Once a month or every five weeks, depending on how your hair grows, take the cut back' to the creator and let him trim and thin. Providing you have been setting and combing your hair in the way he recommends, a hair style should improve with each cut. Each time you're at the beauty salon, if you're a busy person, make your appointment for next time and then jot it in your notebook. This way, you'll have a sure reminder of your next time for shearing. You may not notice how fast it's growing or how long it is in back, but your public notices. Spring Flowers Decorate Home Of Mrs. Ellis Red gladiola and spring flowers were used to decorate the home of Mrs. J. C. Ellis yesterday when she entertained members of the Town ind Country Club. Mrs. V. G. Holland, Mrs. John Cox and Mrs. John V. McHaney were guests of the., club. Bridge winners were Mrs. Marvin Nunn and Mrs. James B. Clark. A dessert course preceded the bridge games.

The woman who thinks in terms of a lovely house is more c o ncerned with the lines of a chair than with its comfort, with * uth Mlllett the placing of bric-a-brac than wtiii oily be sacrificed for the creation a fabric than with whether or not it will take normal family use. She sees rooms as pictures—not as shelters for family living, and so comfort and convenience can readily be sacrinced for the creation of a "magazine" room. The woman who is Interested in making a comfortable home builds the rooms of her house around her family's interests, needs, and comfort. She doesn't ignore beatuy for she, too, wants her home to be attractive. But she subordinates beauty to usefulness and livability and comfort. And because she does this her house looks like a home that a real family lives in instead of a furniture store window or a model home. Not only that, her family does more real living in their home, because it is furnished and equipped for their comfort, rather than to impress visitors with Mama's exquisite taste. Don't you knbw at least one man who worked "hard to build a "nice" home for his family, only to find that his idea, of an easy didn't fit Mama's idea of how a '— 8218 By Sue Burnett Here's a date (rock lhat's as simple and lovely as can be, yet as up to the minute as yoii could wish.
