Please give me a Pointer for retinismng. waxing or wuat- ever I should do to restore the bowl's natural beatny. -MRS. W. T- P.

I iron over the spot and then pin a safety pin where the mending needs to be done The machine mending is put n one stack and the hand sewing in another. When anv *oi:ng neighbors: drop ! n fnr a cup of coffee I do this hand mending at the kitcnen taole while we have our coffpe. The safety pins save forgetting as well as looking for the places that need attention.

Extension Agent. 4-H and Youth' Winchester Hall "Reading the hands" is a form of fortune-telling practically anyone can engage in, even without psychic powers. Hands too often reveal traits that the face can conceal. It doesn't take extrasensory perception to conclude that a girl with consistently dirty fingernails under high style polish is careless -careless about her appearance and probably careless about her manners. Grubby knuckles, dirt- rimmed nails, and rough elbow* ar« signs of neelect which can be avoided by attention to soap, water, and a hand-brush. Five minutes at the wash bowl several times a day will work wonders, usi n g a brush with bristles long and firm enough to get under the nails and into the crevices of knuckles and elbows. Coat the brush lavishly with soap lather and apply it with determination, following the method used by surgeons. Begin way up on the arms, and work down toward and under the nails. Laymen have the same need as medics for under-nail scrubbing, because this area is most retentive of bacteria. While germs on more accessible surfaces can be washed difficult to dislodge those under the nails. This area should never be neglected because fingertips frequently touch body surfaces and food. Health authorities often trace cases of mass food poisoning to a single pan* of hands which have contaminated the ingredients of a seemingly delicious dish Summer calls for special hand care, because short- sleeved dresses bring them into view right up to the armpits and because soil adheres to perspiration. Also many outdoor activities are real dirt-catchers. Always suds-brush hands thorouzhlv after gardening, with special diligence after using chemical weed or bug- killers. Lathering is essential for safety's sake even after wearing garden gloves. To prevent deep soiling, scrape nail across a moist bar of soap before starting on any grubby job. When the job is done, the soap and soil will wash away together. Sun-tan oils and lot i o n s should be removed upon returning indoors. Some such products rub off on upholstery; the easiest way to prevent stains is by using soap and water to wash arms and hands which no longer need their sun-screening protection.
