One In Every Group Not Satisfied 11 c i i they he Her husband has financial success could have hoped for when were married. It has been a slow but steady climb, based on ard work, dependability and nteprity, rather ;han on brilliance, education or • connections. And yet though she has more than enough to make her life comfortable, convenient and se- Kuth Muiett cure, she is as far from being satisfied with what she has as she was when her husband was making only a fraction of his present income. " And no matter how much he makes, she will never be any nearer to getting the things she thinks she simply must have. For every time her husband moves up one notch, she moves the family up two. So they always Live in a neighborhood that is one step more expensive than they can afford. They always have. friends who can and do spend more than they can. And whatever she buys Isn't quite good enough to satisfy her, because whatever it is some friend has something a little better. The years have etched lines of discontent in her face. • Her conversation sometimes gives away her envy of anyone who has more than she has.

A little imagination on her mother's part put some fun and excitement into bathtlme. Bath brushes, grownup soap, or, in this case, a bubble bath just like mother's turn the bath into a kind of play-acting party. Little Ladies Love Bubbly Bafli By ALICIA HART NBA Beauty Editor A lovely playful little girl suddenly becomes a^ very stubborn piece of merchandise when a parent tries to bully her into good habits. Pressure about brushing the teeth ends with the toothbrush going out the window or down the toilet. Pressure about eating more rapidly; dinner last for three hours. Pressure about keeping clean; the palms of the hands, only, touch the bar of soap. Of course, a child ought to have good health habits. Wise parents and pediatricians have found that the easiest time to introduce these is during the copycat stage, at whatever age that may be in an individual child. Wise mothers move 'quickly when first they find a daughter digging in the prized lipstick and filling the air with precious face powder. Out come juvenile cosmetics — some just for fun, some with an earnest purpose. If a mother can't seem to buy any of these fancied-up products, she can make do with her own. The lipsticks for chapped iips may be inserted in empty adult lipstick tubes. Baby powder, which is safe, may be put in a pretty box with a lavish-looking puff. And, of course, the pill hidden under all the ruffles is soap. One of the easiest ways to entice a suddenly lead-footed child into the tub is with a bubble bath. There is a special children's bubble bath with a matching cake of soap that ought to satisfy any tiny lady's desire for splendor in the bath . Blytheville Hairdressers Unit Makes Plans for Welfare Projects and they've dried, use the soapy dish cloth to sponge off the rubber drain board. It will stay clean and odor free this way. Left to spring cleaning, it may accumulate stains that won't come off. Colors are weapons in a home.' Blue, for instance, is soothing and. restful. It might make an excitable i person more calm, but on the other hand, it might make a moody person depressed.
