If you switch from using polish to using wax on your (urni- ture, or the other way around, remove the old finish by washing the wood surface. Wipe with a well-soaped cloth, then a clean damp one. Then give it a good chance to dry. The really covered-up look offers an alternate to the baretop dress for party wear this fall. But no halfway measures — high neck, long sleeves, too, make this style what it is. A boon to those with bony shoulders or not-so-pretty Be Lavish If You Like By ALICIA HART NEA Buuty Editor A woman had reached the age when she felt she was entitled to wear one splendid jewel. But the family couldn't afford anything near the »i»e of what she wanted. do her husband, a chemist, found her an industrial diamond of immense proportions. He had It cut and set for her and the process cost about what a good real diamond, small, would have cost. And she wore her headlamp with delight. "It's so enormous, everyone believes It's real. They think a woman of my age wouldn't dare wear a fake of thU size," she said, watch- Ing her dice-sized rock flash. • There's some truth In it. A mature woman can carry off something that delight* her with greater ease than the more competitive younger woman. If she wishes to drive a Jeep, or a sports car, or wear a pink coat, she can probably do it. She has done her work in the busy main stream of life and can now have some fun. Many women wait until this age to buy a fur coat, feeling that Ihey can really get, the enjoyment out of it now. So If you have a temptation that falls within the bounds of good taste, be it a party for 20 or a large dog, don't feel inhibited about It. What pleases you will probably please your audience, for your taste has been formed and now you can have some fun in being your own special kind of beautiful. Kilt skirts are making college girls happy and putting a feminine note in sports wear for fall. They are a wonderful boon to the outdoorsy young wife who hesitates to get into slacks or pedal pushers.
