You've got only a few weeks to check up on yourself to see, that you look this pretty for your January party or for your next trip home. . ! ! ; , Remember, rest j at the last minute won't do as much good as regular sleep from now until then. Some sun and fresh air, even if it. is only a walk during your lunch hour, will add to the natural but nifty look you want. When you pat perfume from your jet-topped bottle for a dancing date, you'll be more beautiful if you don't neglect your sensitive, skin now. After allt Winter dryness starts' with the season sometimes. That probably means extra creams for your" skin, longer wait before you go out after you wash your face (and a little cream while you, wait before applying make-up). Occasionally you'll want to treat yourself to a good over-night mask or cream. You may be wiser to use . a creamier powder base, at least alternate from one make-up to another with liquid, then cream base. : ' ' ' SOCIAL AND Mrs.. T. A.

There are continual interruptions and. there is the disadvantage of working . in cramped quarters on a family stove, a grill and. two electric toasters. . ... ' No breakfasts are served except in the case of a man arriving by train who prevails on Mrs. Harrison's good nature. Apart j from the main dish there is a. steady demand for short orders such as one egg boiled, one poached, on-fried on both sides, etc. j Although Mrs. Harrison leaven at noon for a well-earned rest she has to answer frequent SOS calls from the canteen and has been known during a particularly busy time when supplies i were running low to arrive with 10 pounds of sausages, thus saving the situation. j At any time during the day the kitchen is a veritable hive of industry. Once the noon day rush is over the kitchen volunteers gather round the table to peel potatoes for the following day and re-cooking commences for the evening meal when soup, a hot supper, also cold meats and salads are prepared.: The electric .dish washer 'manned by' two volunteers is Jii constant use. and although requiring skill is most ably operated, Mrs. Harrison and her satellites of, the kitchen say that the splendid cooperation and gratitude of the men make their work well! worth while.
