Style News; There's No Tax on Ingenuity With Your Old Furs By HELEN FORRIST HALL (Associated Press Writer) All right, all right! We women are foolish. Maybe the men know about it. But we still can save outfaces and look extravagantly pretty even though we missed the boat on buying those new furs. The answer is old furs. If cash is low, why not take what you have and put your imagination to work? For the tax on furs docs not apply to workmanship or added materials, although it does apply to new skins neeed for repairs. It's surprising how much chic can he pulled out of a mere scrap of fur. It may be anything from a bracelet to a tippet, a button to a cape, but whatever you have can go to make something in fashion. In cutting down a large item such fas a coat into a jacket, weskit or capelet see that as much of the fur as possible is utilized, then hang onto the scraps. Creating unusual gadgets is real fun. NOVELTY WITH COLOR To start with, if tho pieces are not too valuable, you even may experiment with color. Fancy colors are smart in small itt;ms. A very uptown New York milliner, want-In? a certain hitrh shade of pink for a hat and muff, dipped white fox into benzine which was tinted witn oil naint and cot the desired color. Dried, the furs were spanked into fluffiness. and the result was a 6wish little hat and g"ay muff, tonned with a rose or two. for which the customer was charged $60! Persian lamb sleeves, which slip on the arm and stay firm by means of elastic bands, have been brought out by one Now York designer. They may be worn over coats, suits and street dresses. You might try the Idea with other furs. TRIMMED WITH RICHNESS Fur bags, purses and muffs have been gaining In popularity and add a rich note to a simple costume. Nearly every town affords a shop or artisan who will make them up, or patterns may be found in home sewing magazines. The same Is true of gloves made entirely of fur, or fur-trimmed. One designer creates long suede gloves with red fox cuffs which may be turned down Into a muff. Shoes, incorporating fur In the body proper, may need to be made by the custom bootmaker, but little bows, loops and trims may be managed at home or by the local dressmaker. The little shop around the corner will make smart fur buttons for you though you may need to have the shoe-repair man make up your matching fur belt. However, If you're handy with the needle, soft cords and chains of fur may be made at home. This is a good place for experimenting with color before the Items are made up. A well-known designer creates link chain necklaces and bracelets and cuts out leopard, backed by green felt, for a lily to wear at the lapel. Another designer appliques flut caracul flowers around tho hips and at tho lapel of simple black afternoon suits and dresses, outlining them with black wool yarn.

WITH OUR COMPLIMENTS Beautiful Beige SAN BERNARDINO DAILY SUN, and STYLES and T?AnA k WlMTTTPIn MARTIN UUltCU UJ i. BRIDGE WAITING FOR THE SIGNAL "That fellow's too good a gucsser for me," complained a member of our bridge club recently. "He always seems to' know how to finesse for queens or how to give his partner the lead at a critical moment." We sympathized and asked what had caused the complaint. As we had expected, the expert about whom the complaint had been made had not done any guessing at all. As a matter of fact, one of the marks of the true expert is that he will never rely on his guessing powers if there is any way for him to find reliable evidence to guide him. That's what he had done in the hand in question: South, Dealer East-West' vulnerable NORTH A 10 7 4 10 8 0 AKQJS 852 WEST EAST A 6 3 A J 9 4 3 J ?

Duramv returned a low spade, South putting up the king. But West refused to win the trick. He knew he had to win three tricks in clubs and hearts to defeat the contract but b didn't know just which tricks they would be. If South had the heart ace, as seemed orobable. West would have to trv for three club tricks. But if East had the heart ace, West could lead a heart and get a club return. One thing was sure: East could not have both the ace of hearts and the king of clubs, so West had to make the right decision before South managed to discard his losers on dummy's diamonds. South continued with the queen of spades, and this time West took the trick. The reason for his holdup became clear when East signaled with the seven of hearts. West had aimnlv been waitine to give his part ner a chance to signal. It was then easy to lead a heart to East's ace and get a club return to set the contract.
