WHY WOMEN / i WEAR HATS Some women wear hats because: A hat can ward off a cold in the head or a bout of sinus. A hat can keep the blinding sun out of your eyes. A hat can prevent the wind from robbing your hair of natural oils. A hat can stave off a balch of freckles. A hat can keep your head nice and dry in rain and snow. But some women wear hats because: A hat can be a cosmetic, a beauty treatment. A hat can pretend your skin is magnolia. Try a beige veil. A hat can uplift face lines that are downward bent. (Try the uncurving brim.) A hat can feign height. (Try high trimmings.) A hat can deepen the baby blue of your eyes. (Try a blue hat). A hat can soften a sharp profile. (Flower hat). Also can broaden a receding chin, minimize a poor feature, play up a good one.' And some women wear hats because: A hat (white one) can discourage a taxi from bumping into you on a dark night. A hat (red one) can encourage a beau to bump info you. A hat (new one) can give a three-year old suit a new lease on life. A hat (right one) can wring compliments from a stone. A hat (day one) can make you look tidier on your working way. A hat (evening one) can make you look dreamier on your off duty way. And still other women wear hats because: A hat can lie like a trouper about your age. A hat can pick you up when your best friend has let you down. A hat can help make a gent throw his hat in the ring. A hat can be the one bit of nonsense in your new all sense wardrobe. P. S. Of course, you could go without any hat qt all if you have the prettiest FACE in the world . . . perhaps you don't need any blandishment, any flattery, any ornament any of the cooperation a hat can give. One face in a million may not need a hat ... but the other 999,999 will go for a hat and get that second LOOK!

BUY WITH CONFIDENCE* BULLETIN CONCERNING HOME-BUILDING IN 1950 DISTINGUE SMAI I - 1IOMKS T here are a lot of families in Algona that need new homes, and this spring, summer and fall I'm going to build them . . . They aren't going to be big expensive homes beyond the reach of the ordinary budget—and they aren't going to be cracker boxes. They will be sturdy, comfortable and attractive two- and three-bedroom homes priced under $10,000. I've had this idea now for a long time. I've wanted to build houses that people can afford and that people will like. This will be the first year that I've had the facilities to handle a real housing project adequately. By building 14 or more homes at once, li will be able to make savings in costs and production that will really mean money well spent for you. ' The most attractive part in buying one of these homes will be the financing. The lots and my plans have already been approved by the Federal Housing Administration, and they have given me the "go-ahead" signal on this project. These houses can be bought for 20 per cent down, with payments of principle, interest and insurance balanced over a 25-year period. The houses are all being built within FHA rules and regulations, and will be financed under their long-term low-payment plans. If you, personally, are interested in this project and really need a home, I would appreciate your coming to see me. By contacting me soon, you'll have many advantages—in choosing the plan you like most—and even in specifying the room colors you like. When these homes are finished, they'll be sold lock, stock and barrel— house, lot. sidewalk (in some cases with garages) at the LOWEST POSSIBLE cost. This does not mean that I no longer build individual homos. Yes, I am, and I'll build a home for anyone who wants one. If you are planning a home of your own, I would enjoy discussing it with you. Sincere//, BUD ROBINSON
