For while it may be true there's a heart of gold beneath that gravy- spotted shirt, who's going to bother looking for it? Grooming plays a big part in a person's advertising of himself. The trimly-suited secretary, the crisply-frocked housewife, the regally-robed judge, the Homburg- hatted statesman all illustrate the effectiveness of dressing lor one's role. And notwithstanding their complaints about clothing bills, many men appreciate their wives dressing the part for them. .

Winners of the ga/nes last night were Bernard Gooch and Mrs. R. F. Kirshner, first place with 49 points; Mrs. Samuel F. Norris and Mrs. F. E. Black with 47 points in second place;" and Mrs. E. B. Gee Gee and Mrs. Eugenia Jenkins of Steele, third place with 45% points. Color Is Right For Wardrobe If 18 to 80 BY ALICIA HART NEA Beauty Editor Traditionally, women's hats re»- flect the color and gaiety of spring. But many women respond in other ways to the most feminine of seasons. The important thing is that you DO respond. Whether you are 18 or 80, add color to your wardrobe j this season. ' It's unfortunate that some mature women limit their costume colors to the neutral shades. Wearing only black, gray and brown season after season can't help but injure any women's morale. If you've become so accustomed to these background shades that you hesitate to plunge into color now, use it only in tiny touches. You don't even have to go so far as to buy your hat and gloves in a bright color. Instead, select a black straw hat trimmed with little colored flowers, or with white flowers centered with a flash of color. Then buy plain, white cotton gloves, and trim the wrists with bits of chiffon in the same bright shade. And confine your jewelry to just one or two pieces that also carry out the gay color note.

FIRST PRIZE Beautiful 16x20 Heavy Oil.Portrait in Appropriate Frame WADE SHOWNES Son of Mr. & Mrs. Vaughn Shownes Latest Glove Styles Need Cleaning Care BY ALICIA HART NEA Beauty Editor GAY in dtsign but genntle in j color, gloves have new importance j in the fashion picture. Women are j finding the distinctive detailing and fragile shadowing irresistible. And almost even-one knows that no outfit is complete without gloves, i even in warm weather. | Here's how to keep the new gloves as fresh as spring itself. Cottons and nylons that ordi- j narily would be washed in very | warm water often include features j that require more gentle sudsing, i Use of elasticized shirring to pro- j mote neater fit in such gloves, for J example, calls for warm, but not! very warm, suds to preserve the resilience of the elastic. When leather palms are combined with sheer nylon - backs, the gloves should be washed very quickly in warm suds to prevent the loss of the natural oils that keep leather soft. You can preserve the tone of pale pigskin by bleaching it with a litte lemon juice after sudsing. Whenever possible, remove the trim from gloves before washing, j And, to make sure crocheted suffs' or gusses dry back to shape, smooth j and straighten them gently with your fingers when you lay them on a towel to dry. Fringe trim should be fulffed a few times during drying. Teen-Agers Show Maturity by Shopping Aione BY ALICA HART NEA Beauty Editor One way you teen-agers can show your" maturity is to learn to select 'your own clothes. Taking a friend or two along may be fun, but: it's really unwise. In addition to learning to rely on vour o\vn judgement (so important m all aspects oi adult living), making a habit of shopping alone will help you to develop an individual style sense. Instead of consulting your friends on what to buy. consult fashion and grooming articles in your newspaper. Learn to understand your figure, how to tone down bad points, play up good ones. Then interpret fashion news in ohe light of what you know about yourself. If you follow this plan. you'll be able to tell far. . better than any friend what will look best on you. And you'll be gradually developing your style sense, based on your familiarity with your personal needs and current fashion trends. You'll have to expect to make some errors in the beginning. But that's how anything is learned. Besides, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that the wise choices were entirely your own. If you aim to get in ana out of a bathing suit in record time, look for one that features a zipper down the front. With this feature, you'll keep your count to seconds. Overweight?
