Advice to Young Man: Consider Her Disposition A college boy home for the holidays was felling his wise and realistic mother about the wonderful girl he was dating. With great pride he mentioned her beauty, her brains, and the honors she had won on the campus. His mother listened care f ullv and then tohl him: "All of those things are fine, son. But If you're :. ^^^K thinking of mar-.. VHP i rying the girl Ruth Millclt " there's something more Important than any of them. Has she got a good disposition?" That Is, of course, a far more important question than most young men realize.

I/PJ-A housewife told a gathering of top retail merchandising experts recently that contemporary women's fashions'are "hysterical." And she said the legwork involved in shopping is "terrific." In a speech prepared for deliver}' at the session of the National Retail Dry Goods Association annual meeting here, Mrs. Dorothy E. Swenson of Great Neck, N. Y., declared: "There Is no development of style in the grand manner of the storied past. We don't have historical fashion any more; now it's hysterical. Costly Fashion Nonsense "I'm amazed that the wonderful women of today let you store people pet away with all this costly nonsense of hc-m-line-up-this-year and rtown-some-olher-yeai-. I ask you, did any new crop of gorgeous girls In your memory ever look as droopy and friendless as those who wore what the stores called the -New Look?' Can't you let fashion develop slowly and organically?" The speaker, who said her present housewifely status followed a 30-ycaT career in fashion advertising rnd merchandising, took the retailers to task on several other counts. Too Much Lepwork For one thing, she said, the fun of shopping has been spoiled be,- At the Hospitals Blytheville Hospital Dismissed: Ann Twcedle. city. •Mrs. Tom Brown, city.

COUCH WAIT'S GREEN MOUNTAIN COUCH SYRUP RELIEF Clothes Should Flatter Figure (By NBA Service! , Why worry about your figure j faults, when there IS something you can do about them. The trick! is in learning the art of camouflage and disguise. The too-thin silhouette will deceive all on-tookers when It is pleasantly rounded in gypsy - sleeved blouses, peplums, impressed pleaU. vohiminous coats and boxy Jackets. If your weight Is under par, keep away from slinky jerseys and clinging crepes. You are a woman who can wear wide belts and bright, colors. Disguise is certainly the important element for the overweight figure. To help during the period of tne ditt. stay within straight, classic lines. Narrow center panels, princess styles, and gently flaring skirts all have a slimming effect. Large prints are pointless. «nd loud colors outlandish. This is the time in your life when you must be conservative above all else. Since heavy hips have a habit of happening to all typos of figures, it's well to know that you can balance them with built-up shoulders. Full skirls are. taboo, as are wide belts and stripes. Just the opposite rules apply if you are "top-heavy." Your shoulder line should be kept small and simple, with all emphasis placed on the skirt. Don't depend entirely on your clothes, however, to flatter your figure. Help them along with diet and exercise.
