She begini to measure every one's age by her own. "She must be at least five years older than I." or it the other woman Is a few years younger she says: "We mustke just about the same age." She starts to doubt the number of birthdays oth- Ruth MilleU er women have allowed themselves: "Who does she think she's kidding?" she wants to know; "Why, she'll never see forty again." She suspects that any woman her age who Isn't turning gray is "doing something" to her hair. "You can't tell me that at her age she hasn't any gray hair." Her first comment when she tries on a dress is either: "Are you sure it isn't too young looking?" or "Not that. It looks too old." One of the first things she tries to decide when she meets another woman is how old she. Is. She is shocked when she meets an old friend she hasn't seen in years. She tells the friend, "You haven't changed a bit." But she goes home and tells her husband: "I was shocked at how old Marge looks. She certainly has let herself go." Reminds Husband of His Age She reminds her husband of his age, preferring the phrase "at your age" to "at our age." She always hastens to add when talking of a friend who is older than she is (If only by three or four years) "Of course, she is older than the rest of our crowd." When a woman becomes age-conscious, she Is worrying too much about growing , older herself. Her concern with everybody, else'i age just means she Is self-conscious about her own. f GOOD USED FURNITURE We are now using the second floor of our store exclusively for used furniture.
