Sunglass Frames Suif All Tastes The day of the heavy frame In sunglasses is gone forever. In 1959. frames may look fashionably large but they are light on the face. The reason? It's because they're made of feaUi- er-light nylon. ! There's something for everybody in sunglass frame? this year. Oversized sunglasses in tortoise or black are eye-stoppers for bright days.

Okla.—— On playing fields roughly hewn from a 65-acre woodland, boys are learning how to be "big league" citizens through baseball. The youngsters, 8 to 18, ive" baseball seven days a week at the Chandler Baseball Camp, but the operation embraces much more than baseball. After the camp's first season of operation last summer, many parents wrote camp di- State University in 1958. The For patio parties and picnics. I ^-oupie will reside in Racine, frames become dressier. Some are trimmed with pastel Limoges and others get a treatment of silver filigree or colored stones. Others have rhinestone or pearl trim to be matched to jewelry. The lenses in your sunglasses should, of course, be ground and polished whether you use a prescription or not. They prevent distortion and give maximum protection. Make-up Hues Differ Under Artificial Light Artificial light plays tricks with one's face. Electricity drains color from the face. Also, there is a tendency to pick up shadows from Edi.son's pride and joy. So choose a foundation and powder which add color to your face. Chandler Camps -^uts Emphasis on 'Big League' Playgrounds Hold Pet Shov/s Both "live" and "toy" pet shows were held last week at Racine playgrounds to climax "Pet Week". The "pet" theme also was used in many day-to-day activities, as playlcaders read animal stories, directed songs and games about animals and supervised the making of animals in handcraft periods.

Birthday Party for l^Year-Old Means Work, Planning for Motfier Ry Vivian Brown (AP NBWiitf«turi'M A mother is very likely to give a birthday party for herj first 2-year-old child. Few people could restrain her from this idea though her child may not even be aware of what it's all about. Mother is determined to start her child out with all the good things. So — there is going to be a party. The best bet is to limit it stead of spoons helped prevent spilling of ice cream. Individual Cakes Mother may be appalled at the idea, but the most practical birthday cake at this age is the individual one, an iced cup cake with two small candles on top: Colorful bibs were made of two squares of brightly flowered sailcloth tied together at the shoulder, and —Journ»l-Tlme» Photos io four children, and to make itl^^^ese not only protected the lit- tie party dresses but were gay and decorative as well. They Special Towels for Beacfi Purposes Good for All Members of Family If you're tired of having your good towels vanish toward the beach or swimming pool and re- ance, Mark guide lines for rickrack and bias tape trimmings on the fish. Jumbo width rick- turn loaded with grit and sand.| rack in brilliant sunfast colors remedy the matter with beach towels just for this purpose. You can buy them ready-made or make them yourself from terry cloth, available by the yard in wonderful colors, and gay trimmings. You might want to make one for each member of the family, custom-tailored to their sizes. Two yards of 48-inch terry will be enough for a big, man- sized towel. Colorful appliques, such as fish, are gay and define its purpose as a useful and decorative addition to water and sun recreation. Fish Applique An extra yard and a half of contrasting terry will make big and little fishes. Draw fish pattern on wrajiping paper. To insure that both sides of the fish will match, draw a half fish and lay straight edge against fold of terry'. Mark outline of fish on terry cloth and cutout, leaving one inch seam ailow- will striije the fish and survive hard wear. If you use a slant-needle .sewing machine, set it for a wide xig-zag stitch to applique the rickrack to the terry. Pin bias strips in place and stitch with a straight stitch or a decorative one. Finishing 1'ouchcs Basle the trimmed fish in position on the towel. Stitch around the outline following the guide litie. Trim away excess fabric close to the line of stitching. To make fringed ends, simply thread white yarn through the end of the towel just above the turned hem. Knot yarn close to towel, for better wear, looks. Other designs that might be used are sunbursts, with rickrack "heat" waves, sailboats, giant lifesaver with the person's name appliqued on it, or a corner monogram. simple. Invite the mothers to stay. You'll need them to keep things in tine. Festive Colors • A gay color scheme of red, yellow, orange and pink was used by one mother to impress the children with the festive occasion. She used yellow and white bowls and plates of childproof plastic for ice cream, cake and milk. She made orange felt coasters which were used under each bowl of ice cream and this made a gay contrast with a yellow formica top. Oriental porcelain scoops in- need not be hemmed for party use. It's a good Idea to have a party for small fry in an open part of the such as a screened-in porch or patio. It could be on the lawn. Children at this age need freedom, and will want to stretch their legs during the entire party, so you don't want to be put in the po sit ion of saying "don't touch that," "don't do that" at every turn. It will dampen the spirits of the small fry who are there to have fun. Letters from Home Important to Camper By Dorothy V.

How you forgot to Maybe its his first expen- ^^e milk and flow the STOREWIDE SUMMER CLEARANCE All Summer Wear Must Go! \ SAVINGS i UPTQ Mi 11 9U0GIT (BHARGI ALL SALES FINAL MAIN AT FOURTH ence away from home. He will most certainly want to hear how thing are doing at home. He will need word from home more in the beginning of camp than toward the end when.he is in the swing of camp life. Begin to write to him at once and write to him often. Pictures Help if your youngster is below 10, make very sure he is able to read what you write. Children have difficulty reading the handwriting of many adults. It is not a bad idea to print out your letters. It takes a bit longer—but then it's better to send many short letters than only a few long ones. A few don'ts: milk is crowding out everything else in the refrigerator and you guess you will have to give Daddy junket for supper. "I'll bet he won't eat it up the way you do," you should add. Talk about how neat house is without small boys to mess it up. And you might say, "You linow I looked everywhere yesterday for my scissors. I looked in your room and in the toy chest and everywhere — and where do you think I found them? Right by my chair where I dropped them." Episodes Maybe you could write him Don 't give him a lot of in- a story about some episode of structions. Don't remind him to brush his teeth or .say his pnvyers. The adults in charge of the camp will see to these details. Your child will not appreciate being nagged by you long distance. Don't nag him about writing to you. If there is anything wrong you will hear immediately from the carhp. On the other hand, if he does write, always mention his letter when you write to him. Tell him you miss him. No one likes to slip out of an established place and not leave a hole, but don't make him his childhood that he will remember: "Once upon a time there was a little boy who had an itch when he went to bed for his rtap. He scratched and he scratched and couldn't go to sleep. Finally his mommy came and put some salve on his itch. She left the tube of salve on the table by his bed. The little boy itched some more. After a while he got some more salve to sooth his bites. His hands were gooey. He rubbed them together and then he rubbed them on thei wall. What a mess that little boy made!" andi Your stories need not be masterpieces of literary skill to fascinate your child. With your stories and family episodes, draw a few pictures. You don't have to be a great artist. A few straight lines and a circle for a head are enough, just something that adds contrast and interest to a whole page of writing If you are really ambitious the!you can cut out a picture or two from a magazine and paste into your story for illustration Letters of this sort are the kind children away from home love- to get. They make the child feel friendly and warm toward home and parents and such feelings in the child help to make him co-operative at camp. You need not tell him you love him — though of course you can always add it but whether you say it or not the child knows it because you take the necessary time and trouble to write good letters. rector Bo Belcher that after their youngsters returned home, marked improvement was noted in their character, responsibility and getting along with others. Confidence "Baseball like other competitive sports," Belcher says, "instills that confidence and teamwork in a youngster. Character and responsibility are the by-products. "We try to build poise and confidence on the baseball ield in a youngster. He acquires this when he knows exactly what to do in a given situation. He reaches a point where there is no tension when he plays." Through baseball and the camp the youngsters can acquire other desirable traits. Under guidance of a counselor, the boys are responsible for tidiness of their bunk area. A banking system adds to the younger boys' learning. Par^ ents deposit $5 to $10 in the 'bank" and the boys write checks for haircuts, soda pop, candy and toilet articles. Appearance In keeping with his "big eague" theme, Belcher stresses the importance of appearance of a ball club. For games, the teams use regular baseball uniforms. "Learning how to act like a ball player really gives the kids a lift and is an essential part of our program," Belcher says. Each boy must attend Sunday school at one of Chandler's II churches. They pjay a game on Sunday afternoon and view films of World Series games that night. Boys are divided into age divisions of 8-10, 11-12, 13-14 and 15-18. There are three 3- weeH sessions with about 90 in a session. •Wealth of Spirit' Belcher, a former newspaper editor, publisher and Oklahoma State Fair promotional director, launched the camp with little money but a wealth of spirit, and the aid of the Chandler Chamber of Commerce. The camp IS a $75,000 investment consisting of seven diamonds and 11 buildings. The two main diamonds have scoreboards, public address systems, lights and concession stands. Nine cabins house the youngsters with 10 to each cabin. There is a staff of 18, including 10 coaches. Whether big league ball players will be turned out is only a guess, but several hian- dred parents can vouch for the fact that "big league" citizens are already on the production line. YOUNG ARTIST'S SMOCK—A striking style for little girls sized four to si .K is a button down the front artist's smock with an appliqued drum pocket. A white Peter Pan collar frames the face. It's in cotton for quick as a wink washing and wearing. NOTICE: Due to oven breaking down, we will not be able to re-open tomorrow, following our vacation.
