Without the right tools gardening is an uphill fight — nothing goes easily and you waste a lot of time you could spend on the more enjoyable phases of gardening. With all of them, of course, a good quality product is necessary. Inferior grades bend, break and dull quickly, making it impossible or difficult to finish one's job. But, what are the right tools? First, one needs something to dig with and to turn over the soil. Best for all- around use is the round-point shovel. It makes a good tool not only for turning the soil but also for digging holes and scooping. For deep holes, prying or taking the backache out of the job the long-handled form is best. And, where digging is difficult because of roots or stones and it is necessary to maintain a firm grip at all times the shorter D-handle comes into its own. For deep, especially non- stony soils in the garden the sturdy spade is best. It, too, comes with a D-handle and is good for cutting roots and root pruning. Its long, straight blade makes it particularly satisfactory for digging plants and it readily doubles as a sod cutter and turf edgcr —• unlike the curved blade of a shovel. It cuts a straight line. Another fine digging tool is the spading fork, particularly adapted to hard or stony soils which Its narrow tines penetrate much better than a spade or shovel. It ii also lighter and, thus, enables one to dig up the garden much faster. Every gardener knows the regular hoe for both loosening and hilling up soils but for small places there are special narrow ones and small triangular ones that slide through the soil with ease in any direction cutting weeds of just below the surface. For weed control the push- pull motion of the scuffle hoe also covers a lot of ground quickly, while for just loosening the soil nothing beats the long-handled, toothed cultivator. Equally useful are the rakes. For working soil smooth a sturdy - fingered steel garden rake is unsurpassed, while on lawn the UNDECIDED NOW? Ever count the hours wasted through indecision? LOTS OF LACE—This is Parisian designer Simone)ta's idea of just the thing for the summer hostess or resort visitor. The tunic is of French guipure lace, the pants of shantung and the boots of shantung topped ,with more lace. t Elmwood Plaza and 312 6th St. STARTS TOMORROW at Both Stores Eimwood Plaza -10 — Downtown - 9:30 PRICES SLASHED FOR QUICK CLEARANCE SPRING AND SUMMER DRESSES Cottons - Silks - Acetates - Daeroiis Formerly Priced to ^25.00 $7 3 LARGE GROUPS 9 - SPORTSWEAR Co-ordinate Groups - Blouses - Sweaters Slacks - T-Shirts - Shorts 3 and off SPRING COATS and SUITS Ruin All Wool Tweeds-WOISUMIS- 'N' Shine Goutg - All Wool UIKI Acetate Suits I^orinerly Pricccl lo $60.00-Out They Go At 15 • *20 - *25 spring steel fingers of the broom rake are Ideals particularly the adjustable width models.

KEEP PRACTICING Practice a confident walk. Your spirits will rise. Honest, They're There Behind those Sunglasses Parents of teena are In for a long, dark summer. That mysterious stranger in the house, that tangle-haired type sitting there at breakfast, maddeningly inscrutably in dark glasses, is a fixture as certain as sunshine this summer. The sunglass syndrome is upon us. Parents who have trouble enough with their bewildering teens must now come to grips with mysterioso f 0 rt 1 f i e d. They wear sunglasses from dawn to exhaustion. Don't fight it! Join it! This is one teen fad which not only has elements of sense in it ... it is one which the wily parent can twist to his own uses. True, sunglasses before dawn or in the gloam Ing are absurd. But, eye care, and proper use of glasses Is sensible, If that sloe-eyed beauty always has preferred vagueness and stumbling to wearing her needed specs . . , rejoice! If that lanky matinee idol In long hair and wrap around sunglasses always rejected his own corrective lenses as unmanly , . . he's caughtl Glasses are IN . . . every kind, dark or otherwise. No self-respecting teen will go without them. According to experts the average eye will suffer no more than mild eyestrain from much use of sunglasses. For the active young types. liACINE SUNDAY lUUITiN proof, U a fiafety d^Vlce, IS also better . iince Experts, recommend green or brownish sha the most effectivj». screening of glare. Blue, while satiify* ingly dramatic, is merely an acceptable alternative. For the normal eye, parents should insist on the best sunglasses and frtimes ,. . . even though the itiv^estment originally may be higher, the quality of sun-screening >vill be better, and the frames will last longer. No matter what the life a teen leads, two pairs of sunglasses are better than one. For corrective lenses, this is also the better part of sense. It means one pair of frames can satisfy teen aesthetics for size and screwball appearance, one satisfy the basic plastic, now hard and shatter-!demands of sense and safety.
