Grace Comes From Practice BY ALICIA HART NEA,Beauty Editor No one has kept a record of how many women have spoiled a beautiful appearance by plopping in a chair. A woman may walk beautifully and have a wonderfully controlled voice, but if she settles in a chair like a mUkmaid squatting on a stool, it all goes to naught. Like many phases of beauty. "slowly-does-it" is the motto here. Until you get the knack of it, go as slowly as you have to to do this maneuver gracefully. No one will notice your slow motion, but they will surely notice hurried, awkard, embarrassed movements. Approach the chair sideways for .1 step. Place one foot back, right by the edge of the chair Place the other foot directly in front of it. Then lower yourself gently into the chair. If you do this right, and don't end up on the floor in your practice run you should find yourself sitting easily forward In the chair with your r-nkles crossed. It's best to practice with s straight chair and a mirror at home. Deep, soft chairs take a little more work. Don't settle into .these; , let your good pasture suport you. You should never spraw in a chair. If you need to alter your position after you have sat down, you can do it easily if you haven't given in and allowed the chair to do your work of holding you up, Tf you must heave about in it, discreetly pick a new chair the next, chance you get.

Guests gathered around the fire as they arrived and were served hors d'oeuvers from silver trays by their hosts. A large white heart pierced by an arrow was u»ed on the mantle. Later a buffet dinner was served from a table centered with a white heart encircled with red lacelon and studded with red carnations.

S. Birmingham, and Bobby Koonce was crowned king by the young men's Sunday School teacher, Lois Ges'tring.

A large styrofoam heart was used to decorate the auditorium and baskets of white gladioli. The tables from which the banquet was served was centered with red lacelon, and ,red tapers in crystal .ndelabra. Miniature dolls were used the length of the table. The head table was centered with red camelias flanked by red tapers. A musical program was presented by Fran Carter, Sherold Williams Geraldine Hinton, Barbara Sawyer and Carlene Tate. Bob McCoy was guest pianist. Group singing opened the meeting and the Rev. Bill Cook, pastor of the church, gave the opening prayer. The Rev, Harold Ray was guest speaker for the evening. provement ought to be all to the good. But carried to the extremes that we carry that idea today, we are never left with any time when we can say "This is how I like It" or "This is good enough" or "With this I can be happy." No matter how much we do there is always something more that needs to be done, something crying for change or attention or "mod- _ HAPPY ENDING—Two tired figures relax in a joyous reunion after two-year-old Russell Deming, blind since birth, is reunited with his pet Boxer, "Buddy."

And so we can't enjoy what we have because our eye is always on what we would rather have than what we've got. Do you know one woman who can ta;:e you through her house without explaining how she has planned to change it? Or do you know a woman who can accept a compliment on the behavior of hei children without telling you she is worried about Junior's lack of responsibility or Susie's shyness? Do you know any woman who is satisfied with her weight, her hairdo, or wouldn't ba insulted il anyone'guessed her age as exactly what it is? And do you Know any woman who isn't trying to change her husband or her marriage? In short, dp you know any woman who ever takes time out to enjoy things just as they are? ounting One's Blessings Is A Lost Art There Is one art we have lost in America today, and that is the art of sitting back and appreciating and : enjoying what we have. ; That old-fashioned art has been ; replaced by the cult .of constant improvement. We are so busy today trying to improve on everything — ourselves, our houses, our children, our marriages — that we never enjoy anything as it is.
