don smith ONE of our regular readers (there are some) ran across some very interesting information regarding gals in one of the very popular magazines the other day. Getting a chance to^ look the magazine over, we found the following items: Mix your own beauty potions from the ice box (that's what it said). Bathing in milk was apparently invented by Cleopatra (when it was much less expensive than today), so now they're advising women to use half a glassful and some cotton to wipe away the day's makeup on the face 1 and neck. You'd better get that milk all off or you'll be a little ripe in in the morning 1 And two brown eggs (whites only), whipped with a fork until they stiffen, are supposed to be a marvelous face mask. Smear it on your face and you can feel your skin tighten. I should think so. Here again, we'd think-it would be well not to leave it on more than a few hours. Of course, if it were left on all night, you might be able to peel it off next morning and fry it for breakfast. There are also uses for cucumbers, butter, honey, lemon and strawberries, but our interest dipped a little after the first two suggestionsl Then there's the Hip Girl's Directory, from which these were gleaned: Fashion Whims Hip: white crepe blouses, overnight ascots, just-below bosom pearls, papier mache jewelry, white stockings, double-breasted jackets, poor girl sweaters, skinny coats, rings on toes, 6- inch earrings, bell-bottom trousers, backless anything* vinyl raincoats; Square: teased hair, silver jewelry, lace (except at night), plaids, monogrammed blouses, formal evening gowns, Capri pants, gay deceivers, Mongol haircuts, ankle bracelets, fresh permanents. Here again, many categories were classified Hip and Square , but this one turned our stomach, so we continued on. Next, came Makeup To Wear To Bed. Your bedtime splashdown ; the cleanest face in town; look, invisible pores; your night-blooming skin; bedtime blush; nighttime eyebrows; bedroom eyes; sweet- smelling you; baby - skin you; light- footed you; sleeping - beauty hair ; nifty nighties, cuddly sleep bras ; a heavenly aura ; delicious indelible mouth; a sensational soother; breath of spring; and to beautifully to bed were the chapters in this one. That one bedroom eyes sounded good, so we read that more closely. First, use eye drops, then roll your eyes around (closed), wear fake eyelashes (quote - there's always an occasion in every girl' s life when she wants extra allure) without eye makeup and you're supposed to be ready for anything. Wow! WHY did the elephant dye her hair blonde ? Because blondes have more fun. - ?A farmer in this area found the perfect squelch for a young motorbike rider the other night. It seems at least two teenagers went to the man's farm and had a little "fun" riding around in a field . The farmer took .a dim view of the whole thing so he took one of the motorbikes away from one of the boys, ending the spree 1 WHEN a baby arrives at your house ten years after the last previous one, there's lots in store for the parents. You forget how much fun a tiny one can be. Especially when she (or he) finds his or her hands for the first time, or the feet, then when you know the baby recognizes members of the family, you really realize this is a full-time human being, as well as a baby. For entertainment (and this isn't intended to be a slap), they beat TV and movies FOR CALCIUM AND PROTEIN Add nutrition to every meal with quality dairy products from .... all to beck 1 A baby also makes you question all this talk about birth control , too. Especially when the results are so terrific ) i - ?- DAVE Martin, star senior athlete at Algona high, is having one heck of a time making up his mind where to obtain his college education. Due to graduate soon, Dave, who is a 2-time state wrestling champion, outstanding halfback In football, track and baseball, as we understand it, had his mind pretty will made up - until he received a lengthy call the other day from Forrest Evashevski, athletic director at the University of Iowa. Dave, also a good student, will undoubtedly come up with the right decision before enrolling at any of the schools that have been after him. SIGN in a Hollywood beauty shop - "The Talk Alone Will Curl Your Hair". HERE'S a bit of advice to anyone with a dollar to invest. Take the buck, invest it somewhere you can get six percent compound interest - then get ready for a big blow-out, 100 years later, for the dollar will then be worth $339.30. On ly thing is, you won't get to go to do.) Upper Pet Maine* Tuesday, May 10, 1966 law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. , D. M. Conley. your own celebration - but it*s worth thinking about, although not mbch 1 ' ' ' SUNDAY, May 1,' was a nice sunny afternoon, so we piled in the family bomb and went for a ride. This side of the old bridge near the State Park, the Manuel Febles family (he's a Spanish teacher at the high school) seemed to be enjoying a walk and it appeared they had been to the park and were headed for their home on East McGregor street. Now, that's some walk I On the hill near the old Good Samaritan Home, Mr. and Mrs. Dick Cook (who had apparently been enjoying a bike ride) were pushing the bikes toward Algona. IrmaDee shouted, "I need some gas!" as we wheeled by. We'll bet she and Dick discovered the location of quite a few muscles the following day. AND then there was the dog that saw the si^n "WET PAINT" - and he did ! MRS. EDNA Harr is spending several weeks at Colorado Springs, Colo, with her son-in- MRS. GEORGE Harris spent Mothers' Weekend with her daughter, Marilyn, student at State College at Cedar Falls. She was accompanied by her mother, Mrs. John Schulz, who visited her son-in-law and daughter, Dr. and Mrs. Randal Bebb. Also in attendance were Mrs. Dean Parrott, guest of her daughter, Judy and Mrs. David Smith, guest of her daughter, Diane. MR. AND MRS.
