I How to Keep From Startling New Husband- Many a bridegroom, so they say, has been frightened by the first sight of his bride in curlers. And many a bride has worried about how to maintain the glamor of the honeymoon and still keep her hair curled. Edith Ta.pley. of Treuton, N. J. has come up with an answer. It's a gay little cotton jersey turban with attached bangs of real hair, faultlessly curled and available in blonde, brunette or redhead tones. It comes in a full range of colors, and proving popular not only for covering pin curls but also for riding in a convertible with the top down, for playing golf on a windy day and even .for wearing to work on the day of a big date, when a girl wants to keep her hair up in pin curls until the last minute. The caps also provide variety, as they enable the same girl to appear with blonde, red or brunette bangs on successive days.

Married life would run a lot smoother if every bride would memorize that sentence and call it to mind whenever her relationship with her mother-in-law grows strained. Here is the kind of failure that usually results when a daughter-in- law decides to "have it out" with her mother-in-law. A wife writes: "I never wanted any trouble with my mother-in-lnw and so until about six months ago I just put up with her bossiness. But I finally couldn't stand it any longer and told my husband how I felt about constantly being told how to run my house, bring up our children, etc. "He advised me to call her up and talk things over with her. I did. I told her I felt I had a right to do things my way in my own home, and that I wished she wouldn't criticize me to my husband. "Boy, that fixed things for me. Now she is crying on everyone's shoulder. She has told her son I was rude to her, and she thinks I should apologize. What she told her other son and his wife I don't know. But they treat me very coolly. "So I am in the doghouse, simply because I tried to stand up for what I feel are any wife's rights." That is the kind of messy situation that usually results from a wife's taking a stand against her mother-in-law, no matter, how justified the stand may be. The mother-in-law can always resort to tears, crying on others' shoulders, and she can usually make her daughter-in-law appear to be inhuman. Furthermore, no son is going to lightly dismiss what his mother says about his wife. He may know in his heart that his mother is bossy and hard to get along with. But he expects his wife to win her over, not to fight her. The only way a wife can win against an overly possessive, interfering, or mischief-making mother-! in-Iaw is to hold her tongue and do | as she pleases without making an | issue out of it. It's when she decides to come out in the open and fight for her rights that she is a sure loser. MEDICAL TABLET DISCOVERY! Without Electrical Devices...

There's nothing more effective than fresh air and sun in drying up facial eruptions. So get out into the air every chance you get, whether for only 15 minutes or a full day. And face the sun without a bit of make-up on your skin. Don't wait until you have a swimming or tennis date. The sun you'll get in your back yard will be just as benefical to your face. Watch your timing in the sun, in order to avoid a burn. Of course, you can't expect sun bathing to do the job. The care you've taken through winter should be continued. Keep using lots of soap and water on your face several times a day. At bedtime, apply medicated cream. And, when you're not sun bathing, conceal the blemishes with a medicated lotion. After covering the blemishes with the lotion, apply some more to blend over your face for a smooth ( finish. That way, you needn't wear j powder, which may penetrate the lotion and interfere with the healing process.

Bangs draw attention from pointed chin to lovely eyes. i Give Some Though to Your Bridal Headdress BY ALICIA HART NEA Beauty Editor NEW YORK— (NEA) —Selecting a bridal headdress deserves more thought than many girls give it, in the opinion of the nationally known hair stylish, Michael of the Waldorf. In addition to complementing your gown, the headdress, says Michael should become your facial type, the shape fo your face and your height. And your hair should be styled to go with it. Regarding the wedding hairdo.! Michael advises: "He'fell in love; with you as you are. so jdon't appear on your wedding day in a radically different hair style." Michael's clients bring their headdresses to the salon several! weeks before the wedding for a I "dress rehearsal." That gives the j stylist an opportunity to take all factors into consideration in creating the bridal hairdo. Having her hair styled well in advance of the wedding also gives the bride a chance to get used to the hairdo and to become adept at caring for it. If you intend to have a permanent, this dress rehearsal visit isi the best time for it. The final set- | ting should be done two days be-j fore the wedding if your hair isi normal or dry. a day before if it is limp and fine. This stylist believes a coronet that's raised in front and tapers off softly to the sides is most effective | on the short girl. A highwinged; hairdo, modified to flatter facial j facial contours and type, comple-1 ments this headdress beautifully, he says. However, the short girl whose chin is long and pointed should choose a j face-framing cloche or simple flor-} al wreath instead. And her hair | style should accent a soft, dipping! movement with short tendrils con-! centrating attention on her forehead and eyes. For the too-round face, Michael suggests the Juliet or shell cap that will allow the mist of veil to add lengthening lines. The best coif for this face, he believes, is one that is rather straight and simple. A coronet that's plain on top with tiny flowers framing the face is this expert's choice for the thin- faced girl. For this headdress, he would create a gently-arranged hairdo that adds fullness with curls built out at the sides. The square-faced girl, according to Michael, should avoid the symmetrical in both headdress , and hairdo. He says the uneven lines of a floral or pearl spray help to lift the eye from the square jaw. A hairdo that's built out at the tera,- oles but close over the ean tlso helps to soften this type face. Don't Sit on the Sidelines, Girls Take Some Initiative Yourselves B. Ramey, Mr. Ramey and their two children, Judy and Joe B., Jr., all of Tuscon. Ariz., and all formerly of Blytheville, are spending two weeks "here with Mrs. Hood's daugh- tre, Mrs. W. B. Oenning and family, and her son, Eugene Hood and fami- ; iy- ! Mr. and Mrs. Frank Turner are the parents of a daughter born Sunday, and whom they have named Judy Faye. Mrs. Turner's mother. Mrs. George Watson of East Prairie Mo., has arrived to spend several weeks with her daughter and family, j Leaving today for St. Louis to i attend the Southern Baptist Con- j vention being held there this week ' were Rev. and Mrs. E. C. Brown j and sons. Don and Jerry, the Rev j John D. Gearing, Mrs. Hubert Pols- ' grove. Mrs. Herman May and Mrs. Vernon Boyd. Mr. and Mrs. Kendall Berry and Mr. and Mrs. Charles Ray Newcomb will leave tomorrow morn- i ing to attend'the convention. j A 16-year-old girl writes: "The other girls are nice enough to me at school, but when four or five of them make plans to do something together I am never included. Can you tell me why that is?" If the girls are friendly toward you at school, then vou are evidently liked. But just being liked won't insure you of being included in the plans other girls make. You can't just sit back and wait for others to ask you to do something. You've got to do some of the planning yourself. Instead of wishing that a group of girls would ask you to go to a movie, or go'swim- ming, get a group together yourself. If you'll take time to really figure out why some girls always seem to be included in plans, you'll dis-, cover that those are the very girls j who do a lot of the planning themselves. Instead of waiting for others to get a bright idea, they get the ideas. Instead of waiting for someone to include them in plans, they extend, the invitations. And that isn't just true of teenagers. It is true all through life. The sideline sitters wait to be asked to join a game instead of starting one themselves. They don't know how easy it is to get others to do things with them if they just take the initiative and do a" little organizing on their'own. There are so many people in the world who wait to be asked to do things that anyone who is willing to do the asking can usually be one of a crowd. NOW OPEN IN OUR New Location So.
