"Otherwise 1 dress her in a costume of the presidential period that looks appropriate."

S. opened in New York City 100 years ago. but today there are more than 3,500 throughout the country. .The American Society of Planning Officials cited those figures in a study ol the development of the day nursery as a national institution. Behind the figures, the society said, is the story of mothers joining the labor force in ever-increasing numbers through the depression of the 1930's, through World War II. and in the present period of defense status. The society said the number of working married women with children under 18 rose from 1,500,000 to 5.262.000 during the years from 1940 10 1851. The ne6d for day nurseries can no lousier be classified as a temporary (r emergency one, the society said. To look her fresh and alluring best for a party or important date after a hard day's work .isn't always so easy for a busy career girl. Even modern make-up wonders can't completely camouflage tired facial lines and put an attractive sparkle in weary eyes. A beauty pick-up which the working girl might well copy is that uscd by many movie stars after a wearing day on the set. Actually crawl into bed and take a cat nap. Rest helps achieve both a party look and party mood, for no woman can really feel congenial and gay when she's tired. Wnila^ a girl rests, wrinkles smobth out, tense muscles relax, and her eyes become clear again. Her whole body, in short, undergoes a rejuvenation. The busy girl may complain that there just Isn't time to nap before her date, but it isn't how long — but HOW WELL—<shc rests that's really important. Just ten or fifteen minutes can do wonders. Napping is one of the quickest and most effective beauty pickups a girl can find .. . and It won't cost her a cent, Perkiest Percolator Perks In A Hurry NEW YORK —fflt-The speed-up age has spread to the electric coffee percolator. A new model brews nine cups in nine minutes. Secret of the faster brewing lies in the unit's two heating elements —one of 350 watts and the other 650 watts- Controlled by thermostats, both elements operate for quicker preheating of water and then the 650- watt element cuts off. After the coffee has been made to your taste, the 350-watt element turns off. This leaves the other element to cycle on and off to keep the coffee at the desired serving temperature. The coffccmakcr also features high velocity pumping action and a novel type of coffee basket which is fully perforated. This permits speedier extraction of coffee oil.s during the brewing. The lid has a clear plastic "spreader" in place of the conventional bubbler. New Folding Doors Save Closet Space CHICAGO —UP— Many of the homes currently on display feature folding closet doors as space saving devices. The folding doors need no room to swing open and shut, designers say, and have the advantage of throwing opon the entire doorway or closet entry instead of merely half the opening, as with sliding doors. Several types of doors are demonstrated but one of the most popular is a new style made of narrow vertical slats of northern basswood woven together with hard twine to form a flat wood In pressing corduroy, iron on the wrong side of the fabric.
