Free Parking Rear of Sforel Business Suit, Coat Musts for Winter Travel in East East is the direction for the, fellow who seeks his winter kicks in the steel and con-' Crete canyons of the big cities. According to the American; Institute of Men's and Boys'^ Wear, the bright frosty days' and nights are among the best in which to enjoy the' sophisticated delights of the; theater and the night spots,' the cultural advantages offered by the many and varied! museums, and the endlessi opportunities for making dra-i matic photos. ^ Of course, half the fun of; a big city vacation is being; able to blend in with thei mob. The big town uniform' for the man in the know is the business suit. Medium to dark shades in subdued patterns can see the well-suited fellow through a day of shopping the big stores, visiting museums, dining in the varied restaurants and taking in the best musicals. A dark or medium .shade overcoat in a cheviot, Shetland or fleecy fabric is a "must," too. And it is ac- knoledged that the hep man about town always tops off his outfit with a becoming hat. Trim dark brown (jr black well-fitted busincis shoes w'ill be needed for pounding the pavements. He will probably want to travel in an easy-going sport jacket and slacks outfit that will come in handy on the weekends and for shutter- bugging as well. Business shirts in his favorite collar styles, colored or patterned for day — white for night, teamed up with plenty of smart ties round out the picture. Gauge your needs for underwear, handkerchiefs, socks and gloves and remember that you will need toiletries, too. Snow and Ice Are Fun-lf • You'e Warm From his tasscled toque to his knickered knees this skier skims the slopes in practical good fashion. Quilted nylon stuffed with dacron provides stay-dry warmth, while the stretch nylon inserts give maximum flexibility. Underneath he wears a turtleneck sweater of lightweight wool. His knickers are of water-resistant corduroy. 79 Baptist Churches Have 5,000 Members NASHVILLE, Tenn. — (./Pi now contain more than 5,000 The Southern Baptist Con- members, s'ention reports that 19 of ils Largest church in the de- more than :iO,OOn churches nomination is the First Bap-|phis with 9,480 members. tist Church of Dallas with 12,108 members.

The American Institute of Men's and Boys' 'Wear offers the following words of advice to that rugged breed of men who takes to the snowy slopes of the north on skis or to the glistening ice of the lakes on skates. A good winter sports outfit should be built from the inside out, so let's consider the best underwear for cold weather fun. "Long Johns" in either the full or three- quarter lengths are the choice of most experienced skiers, skaters and bob-sledders. Not the old big thick bulky jobs —but the newer products made in multi-layer and thermo-cell constructions. For skating don two pairs of socks—one pair of lightweight cotton socks • to go under another pair of lightweight wool. Next slip into a lightweight wool or cotton flannel shirt, a pair of stretch ski pants or a pair of Alpine type ski knickers. The latter call for those handsome husky knit ski shoes. Now for a full cut easy fitting lightweight sweater (if it is a turtle-neck wear it under the shirt). Finish up with a water-repellant ski jacket and top it all off with a ski cap or a knitted ski toque and head for the ski lift while you pull on your ski mittens. For those happy evenings in the ski lodge bring along some warm tweedy sport jackets, flannel and whipcord slacks, comfortable after-ski slipons and a handful of ascots to dress up your open sport shirt collars. A beefy fleece-lined or shearling outerwear coat is 'also a must for spectator Iwear as well as for your comfort enroute. christensen's semi- annual clearance and sale of samples • discontinued patterns slightly soiled displays • broken lots reduced 20% to 50% curtains - draperies—falirics rack samples of bedspreads one-of-a-kind • mostly double size 20% to 331% off sclecf group of fabrics 50c group of pillows $1.00 inil $2.00 selecf group of fabrics yd. $jOO 10% discount- on ony purchoie of rcgulor mcr- cfiondito mode in the iforc during our cicoronce sole.

Cerebral Palsy's damage ranges for beyond the child. It may cripple the family's finances and where there are other children, it can absorb their share of deeply needed affection. Nothing known to man approaches its power to cripple infants in so many ways. When cerebral palsy strikes, brain injury damages part of the brain that sends "orders" to the body . . . contact is broken. An arm or leg is crippled if it receives no messages from the brain , . , muscular control of the body, sight, speech or hearing is thus impaired. Cerebral Palsy's burden is such an overwhelming one that it must be shared.
