Research shows that none of these gambits woos the sandman. There's ""strong proof that fretting over lost sleep is one of its causes. Actually most adults require less than they get or think they need. The tack to take when sleep will not come is to get up and do something that interests you —some sedentary task or pursuit. That way you relax and, instead of trying to catch some sleep, it will catch you. Another theory about sleep is that a brief cat-nap during the day goes ft long way to make up for a short night. It breaks the pressure from work, worry and fatigue. As a consequence you have more energy for your duties, pleasure and even the night's sleep to come. Purely from the feminine view, a soothing preparation for sleep is going "pretty" to bed. Not with-a mass of face goo and curlers, but with an invisible amount of cream and with curlers covered in a frilly cap. . On these hot nights It is especially tranquilizing to devote a leisurely half-hour to the . beauty rites: to t a shower and cologne rubdown; to tending the face and hair; to putting RSVP Chariot^ Ford Gang L&tiders Witt Go the room in sleep-shape order.

By LUCIE NOEL, PARIS .#—Christian Dior today .showed the most daring low cut bosom line in years—but left the hemline modestly just covering the knee-cap. The House of Dior, a recognized fashion leader, tightly strapped down bosoms but left them to bulge seductively in vampire sheaths and low, square necklines. Bloused cocktail dresses were left wide open, revealing almost the entire bosom. Designer Marc Bohan, in the fall and winter designs given their first showing this morning, lifted waistlines in shifts and chemise dresses—mostly in the evening models—to just, below the pushed-up bosom. The torso was elongated. The greater exposure of the bosom applied only to certain types of dresses. Fashion observers did not expect it to change the course- of designing history. The program for the showing explained that the models had the winter hemline. This possibly opened the way for a drop in the hemline next spring. ' Jacques 'Heim has lowered the henvby about three inches on his fall and winter wear.
