That statement isn't Hbeious to women. It's a fact. Women cio talk too much — and say too little. And the woman who lias the most to say that is worth h e a ring Ruth Alillett rarely gets a chance in any group of women. For the big talkers among women are the women who have the least to talk about. Because their lives are geared to keeping up with the Joneses, and trying to push their children ahead of everyone else's children, and try ing to be seen as often as possible in as many right places as possible—all the gabbers can talk about are the details of their endiess rat race. They have to talk long and loudly about last night's party, so that you will know they were there. They have to tell you about all the par- tics daughter has been to, so that ou'll know how popular she is. They have to discuss all their purchases, giving brand names and prices, so that you know they buj the best. They have to discuss their diets. John Gill, student at Hendrix College and trom Little Bock who has been the guest of Charles Ray Hall, returned to his home yesterday. Condition of Roy L.

(Courier News Photo) February Shortest Month of Year Studded With Birthdays of Leaders By MILLIE ANN MALLORY Courier News Society Editor February, the shortest month of the year, is studded with more famous birthdays than any other month of the year. so that you will notice their slim igurcs. They have to talk fast and loud and fight for a chance to be heard. because if they can't talk about th« rat race their lives have become, then they will have to face the fact j .hat their way of living has oecomp ! a rat rnce. j So the women who live by other itandards, and are taking life eas- ly and in stride and have though i. ; hings out enough to have some rieas worth listening to, rarely get a chance to be heard. j The gabbers, trying to talk them- j selves out of knowing how empty j heir lives really are, won't give hem a chance. i They have to talk—because so ! ong as they can talk they dont' lave to think. In this month no less than 27 famous people saw the light of day. Children all over the United States beginning today will be studying about Abraham Lincoln, who served his country during the' War Between the States, and George -Washington, the father of lis country. These two birthdays and Valenine's Day are the three outstanding holidays during the month but in New Orleans the Mardi Gra« season is also celebrated. Abraham Lincoln In school rooms preparations fiaye, been made in decorating rooms, but women who are entertaining this month could use for decorations come February 12, a log cabin theme. Red, white and blue colors could be, used and placecards could be books or small scrolls to represent the Emancipation Proclamation. Refreshments for this occasion could consist of peppermint ioe cream and chocolate cake log. Mardi Gras Mardi Gras falls the day before Valentine's and a carnival atmosphere should be used on that data with confetti, floating baloons. paper streamers and masks. Glittering masks may serve as place cards and centerpieces could be of camellias, which are a favorite of New Orlean's women. For refreshments you could try your hand at making French pastries. February 14 Hearts, flowers and the day for lovers falls on Februray H. This year the girls may bring out their trinkets and fill them with hearts,, cupids and flowers. Although red and white are high ly advertised for this day, other colors which may be used are lavender, ivory, black and gold. This may be demonstrated in hearts of satin, lace and tapers. Flowers for centerpieces are tulips, jonquils, freesia and the flower of the month, violets. Placecards can be Dan Cupid. And for those refreshments, get out your heart-shaped cake pans and Jello molds. You can also use your cookie cutters for open-face sandwiches. George Washington Cherry trees and hatchets are not all that can be used for George Washington's birthday. Also appropriate are ' historical scenes', flags and pictures of George and Martha Washington. Of course, for placecards and refreshments you may take off with your tale of the cherry tree and still further carry it out in the fruit centerpiece. Will Shadow Be Seen? Tomorrow, however, is one of. the most important of the month. Why, of course, it is ground hog day. This theory about winter was brought to this country by immigrants from Great Britain and Germany. So the girls who have already bought the new spring bonnets are hoping he will not see his shadow while the farmers are hoping for j some wet winter weather. Mrs. Flight Guest of Trinity WMU Trinity Baptist Women's Missionary Union met at the church yesterday for a business meeting with 19 members and one visitor, Mrs Izora Flight, present. Repeating of the watchword followed with prayer by Mrs. Bill Cook opened the meeting. Mrs. Cook also conducted the business, gave the devotional and dismissed the group with prayer.

If you have a wail-window combination that demands draperies alJ the way across, make the drapes in six or eight small sections, slip-stiched together. When one spots or needs washing, it can be taken clown by itself, rather than an entire heavy drape. THEATRE On W.

LEE BEARDEN PHOTOGRAPHY DIAL 3-8666 FOR APPOINTMENT New Spring Fashions Shown Today By PEGGY LAMSON PARIS (IP) — Christian Dior unveiled his new spring collection today and didn't give an inch at the bust .But to his flat, H-Hne on top, the pacesetter added pleated or full skirts flaring widely at the hips for a triangular or "A" effect. Dior goes in heavily for a sleeveless pullover jumper which, except for it's color, often looks like a man's bathing suit top from the days when men covered up their chest hair and skin, Dior does seem to have less of the riding habit type jacket this year. Most jackets are shorter, falling quite gracefully to hlpline level. And shoulders seem ,a shade less exaggeratedly narrow and sloping this year. Belts All-Over Belts pop up everywhere. Some fasten loosely at the hip line, some tightly hug a spot just below where the bustline would be if there were any bust. Only on pretty, bouffant - skirted garden party frocks or on short, full-skirted cocktail dresses do belts show up where some people still think they belong—at the waistline. Although the back-to-the-20s long torso look continues, hip emphasis is somewhat modified. There seems little effort to draw additional attention with buttons, tabs, or pockets. Peplums are frequent and smoothly fitted. A typical Dior A-line costume is a three-piece ensemble in grey flannel. The skirt has deep knife pleats all around. The three-quarter length coat, reaching just be- ].ow fingertip level, flares at the bottom. Underneath a flat, straight sleeveless, V-necked jumper is revealed. Perhaps with tongue in cheek or to prove there still Ls such a thing as a bust, Dior allows two or three deeply plunging necklines without any attempt to conceal the curves. If you dote on staying in hotels (just'because you get clean sheets every day), you can have them at home. The new nylon sheets can be yanked off, washed and dried and be back on the bed in an hour. No ironing, ma'am. Hamburger Supper Given For YWA Group A hamburger supper was given at the home of Mrs. Hubert Polsgrove for members of the Dolly Hlett Young Women's Auxiliary of First Baptist Church. Following a business meeting which was opened with prayer by aeraldine Baker, a guest ol the group, they' adjourned to Leach- vllle to attend the Sunday School Rally.
