MONDAY, DECEMBER 12, 1048 Dryer Masquerades as Kerchief By ALICIA HART 1 &Ult Writer Who would have «ver thought that a hair-dryer and * pretty scarf would merge and make a fetching handkerchief which a woman could tie over her wet locks and wear to town? That's what American know- how has brought about. A triangular scarr with moisture-absorbing crystals qullt-stltclied between two layers 01 fabric makes z so-called "thirsty handkerchief." Tied over freshly-shampooed locks or over hairpin-lanced pin curls, hair dries underneath this concealing kerchief In half the normal time, So determined were Us makers to turn this hair-dryer Into a fashionable accessory that famed hat designer Uly mche wns brought In to style kerchief. .Results are high-styled prints- peppermint stripes, polka dots and other colorful motifs—and a variety of smart designs. Any one of these a woman can tie on and wear with perfect confidence to tea. bridge or luncheon while her hair dries underneath. Masquerading as a gay peppermint striped kerchief, this girl's scarf is really a moisdire- absorbin;, scientific hajr-dryer. 2:30 p.m. All members of the High School PTA were urged by the publicity chairman, Mrs. Herbert N. Swear- cngcii, Sr,, to attend this annual event. 26 Blytheville Homes Are Entries In Christmas Lighting Competition Twenty-six Blythcville homes are listed as contestants for three cash awards in the Garden Club's home lighting contest, and contest leaders today announced a seven-day extension ol the deadline lor entries.
