Back row, from left, are Connie Morgan, Betty Hyslop, and Lucille Dull. They appeared in "Fashion Silhouettes And Hair Styles For The Holidays", presented Monday evening at Green Hills Country Club. Mrs. Marvin Phillips served as commentator for the glamorous occasion. The lovely jewelry was selected from the new fall and winter display at Laird Jewelers, and the beauti ful dresses came from the Brides Shop. The attractive hair styles were created by Ed Leyva and Donna Scholosky, both of I he Empress Beauty Salon, and Carolyn Morgan of the Princess Beauty Salon. The show, sponsored by mom- hers of the Eta Beta Chapter of [ Beta Sigma Phi sorority, was highly successful from beginning until its close with the models drawing a constant round of applause for hoth the stunning dresses, the jewelry, and the hair styles which complimented them. Following greetings to the guests. Mrs. Phillips, commentator, said: "The fashion picture for the holidays presents a handsome background for jewelry. It is a season in which there is no single item, no one color, or no individual silhouette. It is. a season of many lovely looks- such as the pretty causal look, the sportive look, the daytime look, the elegant evening look an dthe at-home look. On all these occasions milady is constantly pretty and wears a well groomed look." In jewelry, Mrs. Phillips noted a woman chooses to express hei mood an.l make each costume, or dress, uniquely her very own. Then, as the models appeared, her comments "came to life" in sparking collars, multi-strand chains, pendants, jeweled ropes and matinee necklaces . . . Also, in a lovely upswept hair styles, there appeared jeweled pins — with Lucille Dull wearing a magnificent, "royally tiara." Other jewelry was used to highlight the full length sleeves—or on a lovely bow placed at the hipiine oi a smart black dress and was chosen for the show under the direction of Mrs. Art Laird. The dresses, ranging from casuals to glamorous after-five models, were superbly styled in the most thrilling new fabrics shown in a long, long time. Included in the promenade were those smoothly fashioned in Christmas white nylon jersey. This one featured dainty shirred detail. Other models included cran- beny red knit, black jersey, and black ctepes, a sweater dress of pure white jersey, a black and white combination—with lavish velveteen in the black hodice, and white and gold models.

Polly's Pointers IDLE-TIME GOOD DEED By POLLY CRAMER, Newspaper Enterprise Assn. DEAR POLLY — Recently I saw a way to relieve boredom and while away time when sit ting In a doctor's waiting room. Several balls of wool and pairs of knitting needles were sin> plied with which waiting patients were encouraged to knit a few rows if they could. The squares of knitting eventually were sewn together to make bed covers for the needy and afghans for a home for the aged.—MRS. E. L. R. DEAR POLLY — I had a reed clothes hamper I wished to paint another color. I found it. very hard to completely cover the reed with a brush (spray paint was too expensive to use on this old hamper) until I found that by painting in a circular motion the job was done in no time at all. Now my hamper looks like new. — MRS. L. B. DEAR POLLY — A small daughter who is growing fast is hard on our limited budget, so every saving counts. I cut the tie-on belts off dresses that are too short and let her wear dresses as blouse slips under her jumpers and skirts. This cuts down on the number of blouses and slips to be bought. MRS. A. S. DEAR POLLY — My hint is for typing students or any one doing stenographic work Take a piece of bias tape (enght inches long) and sew a button on each end of the flat side of the tape. You can set your stenographer's notebook upright by putting the front and back covers against the buttons. — MRS. J. C. B GIRLS — I bent a piece of cardboard to form an upside down V and propped It against the buttons to hold loose sheets of paper from which I wa» writing this column. It Is much easier to read and saves a lot of head bending.—-POLLY DEAR POLLY — When burning leaves, take the hose and make a large wet circle around the container in which they are to be burned. If some fall out, they will not burn beyond the water circle. • I have no garage for my car so after each car washing I take an old double-size blank et or spread and throw it on the top and let the sides drop down over the windows. This keeps the car clean longer and is ideal for the wintertime when there Is snow and freezing weather.—MRS. M. R. GIRLS — Before burning your leaves be sure and eheck with city authorities to see If you need a permit Also rnke away any leaves that might be around the container, as an extra precaution, before making the wet circle.—POLLY. Mature Parents Anger Will Find nn Outlet By Mrs. Muriel Lawrence Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Dear Mrs. Lawrence: As I work as a restaurant cashier all day, five days a week, I expect my 15-year-old girl to pitch in on the housework on Saturdays. But instead of backing me up on this, my husband hacks up her laziness. She knows she is not supposed to go out until she has done the marketing but last Saturday my husband told her to forget it. He told her to run along with her girl friend because she will only be young once. This isn't the first time that he . . . ANSWER: Do you enjoy helping your husband to earn the family Inrnme? I don't think you do. Could I he right? If so, let's admit it. Because it is this resentment which may be insisting that your husband owes you unswerving support in your arguments with your daughter as a kind of compensation for the sacrifice you make by leaving your home every day to work. Her "laziness" may not be the problem at all. If we secretly resent a husband's failure to provide us with an adequate income, we may also feel that he has not earned the right to question our discipline of children. As we have to help him earn the family income, we may have struck an unconscious bargain with him in our minds: "O.K. If I have to help you support our home and kids, In return you must support the way I manage them." With our unknown resentment at work inside us, any re- fusnl of agreement with us makes us feel Intolerably abused nnd hotrayed. If we can become aware of The mathematical notation for "equals" was introduced In 1557 by Robert Recorde •with the following explanation: "And to auoide the tediouse repetition of these woordes: is equalle to: I will sette ... a paire of par- ralleles, or Gemowe .(i.e. twin) lines of one lengthe, thus: = bicause now .2. thy- nges can be moare equalle." Gift Shop To Be Conducted By Auxiliary Mrs. Lilliath Stanford, president of the Mt. Vernon American Legion Auxiliary has announced that Mrs. Henry Rockenmeyer and Mrs. Dorothy Warren will join her in again participating in the Gift Shop activities which will be held December 13 at the Veterans Hospital in Marion. This has been an annual project of the auxiliary for the past 19 year3. On the appointed day, veterans in the hospital, receiving 520.00 or less per month in government compensation, are invited to select gifts for his family—without charge. The gifts are then wrapped and sent to the ones for which they have been selected. Money for this worthy project is derived, from donations received from auxiliary units throughout Illinois. Last year, more than 5,000 gifts were sent— at a cost exceeding 510,000—on a state-wide basis.

And so we confess our need for the appreciation. This is difficult for some of us to do. If we have survived hurts by withdrawing our hopes of other people's understanding, we will scorn the idea that we need our husband's. Believing ourselves to be a very strong and self- sufficient woman, we may prefer to go on Imagining that all we want from our husband is WE THE WOMEN Man: A Work Dodger By RUTH M1LLETT Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Whe: it. comes to delegating responsibilities — or getting someone else to do a job for you — men are a whole lot smarter than women. So it is no surprise that when a Houston woman decided to become a professional committee chairman (doing the behind-the-scenes drudgery for busy people who are chairmen of all kinds of committees) her clientele turned out to be 90 per cent men. "Women usually think they have to do all the work themselves, without outside help" is how this "professional committee chairman" explains why she gets most of her business from men. The reluctance of women to delegate responsibility — even when It would be easy—Is why housewives have always complained that their work is never done and why so few women in business become execntives. The housewife finds it hard to trust anyone to do the simplest job around the house, so she does practically all of the work herself. Her husband, she'll tell you, is more trouble than help because he can't do the simplest job without making a big deal of it. As for the children—well, she would rather do things right the first time than have to see to it that they do things right. In business it's a rare woman who depends on a secretary to the extent that most men do, so women with brains all too often waste their time on routine matters any man wonld turn over to his secretary or to a subordinate. In today's world where practically everything seems to be done by committee it was only natural that someone would get the bright idea of making a career out of relieving busy people of the thousand and one details connected with being a committee chairman. It was also only natural that when such help became available the men were the ones to take advantage of it. Men may not be smarter at work than women are, but they are a whole lot smarter about getting out of it. his non-interference in the way ! we run our home and children, whnt we're really angry about, 1 In which case there is nothing we can stop what psychologists j call "displacing" our anger. We can see that what we are furious at is not his support of our child's wish to go out with a girl friend but his failure to appreciate the size of the double job we are trying to do. his refusal to recognize us as someone in need of relaxation and more for me to say.
