The white satin trench coat for evening is a new idea in evening coats, is worn with glittering fake jewels and a tiny hat. Pretty bit of nonsense for evening is the white fox evening bag .hat looks like a gigantic powder mff.

LEE BEARDEN PHOTOGRAPHY CHILD ART STUDIO DIAL 3-86G6 You'd Think Some Women Are Ashamed Ruth Miilett A woman is selling all members of her own sex short when she takes these attitudes: Although delighted to find there will be an extra man at her party, she groans about being "stuck" with an extra woman. Makes a big effort to entertain the husbands of her friends when (he wives are out of town for a few days. But she does nothing about being hospitable to her friends when their husbands are away. Makes statements such as: "I just wouldn't have the confidence in a woman doctor that I have in a man." Old- fashioned as that sounds, there are still women who talk like that. Refers to unmarried women as "old maids." Happily that is a term that isn't used as much as it used to be.. Low-rates women who lead active lives outside their homes. She talks as though they are bound to be neglecting their homes if they have outside interests or a job. Refers to parties given for and by women as "hen parties." That is a contemptuous term when compared to "stag party," used for a gathering of men. Declares she wouldn't work for a woman because men are easier to work for. That attitude on the part of women . is a definite setback to the woman who has the ability to hold down an executive job. Isn't as responsible about doing the best she can on her job because she only intends to work until she marries. That not only holds her back but it gives her employer the idea that all young women have the same attitude. Men take great pride in being men. But women often talk and act as though they don't take any pride at all in being women. HARD-WORKING Sc6uT — Fifty four boxes of Girl Scout cookies sold with a commission of $5.40 plus a $5 fence painting "contract" adds up to $10.40 for Sandra Southern for summer Scout camp activities. Sandra is atop the six-foot fence about one-half way of the 200-foot stretch at the rear of the residence of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Baxter Southern, in Caruthersville. A bit of ingenuity in painting the top, yet it appears she has not solved the problem of getting paint on her blue jeans.
