A real stutterer U conscious of nil •speech and usually Is embarrassed by It," Vernon said. , a new principal. .Our old on called for a design to cover the clasp and many women want their lobes uncovered." The hoops, which come' in several sizes, have a tiny section cut out to let them slip on the ear. Their own weight works to keep them, secured from the curve ot the lobe.
