She was an unusual hostess be- r-.mse she didn't make the mistake ,o many women make of running down herself, her family or her possessions with any little disparaging remarks. And so her guests not only felt they were in the.home of ii woman who was happy with her lot in life iind wus delighted to share her home with her friends, but there was thfi unconscious feeling that h a woman would be as uncritical of her friends as she was of nor family. 'h:'t nvkcs for real hospitality, j Ami yet it i.s surprising how- few \vomi*n can enterhun without making apologies for what they are or for what they have. Girdle Guides Hose Lengths By ALICIA HART NBA Beauty Editor STOCKING advertisements ar« constantly heralding manufacturing advances. Yet no matter what lengths the stocking people go to» some girla nve forever on the run. The trouble often Is a failure to coordinate stockings with girdles. When stockings are too short for the girdle, they not only develop rims quickly, but also pull and are uncomfortable when one is sitting or bending. Just being sure you get your stockings "plenty long" will not end your grooming: worries. For the hose will wrinkle and bag ftt the knee, angles and heel if too long. Besides, seams will not stay straight. There should be no problem in coordinating these items since girdles, lige stockings, come in several lengths. The time to check the length! is when wou are selecting &. girdle. Fasten the garter at the point where they fall when, the foundation is adjusted to your figure, ancr- always fasten the back garters first. The garters should take hold, right in the middle of the double welt of the stocking top. Fastened there, they will anchor the girdle at the thighs as well as hold the hose properly.
