When a woman brags that she "gets along" with her in-laws you can be pretty sure there is no love lost between them. We don't brag about being able to "get along" with those we love or even truly like. When a man starts calling his once-slender wife "Chubby," it makes no difference how much he seems to be kidding, it is time for her to reduce. When Junior insists that "all the other kids" are going to get to do something, you can be sure that "all the o t h e r kids" are telling Butft their parents the very same thing. When a mother tells you her child has never given her a moment's trouble, she is either blessedly forgetful, or she is the kind of mother who always blames someone else for whatever trouble her child gets The Fourth of July holiday this year wil! oc celebrated at th« Country Club here with entertainment planned for the more than 200 members and their families. With the three-day celebration to get underway Saturday, a buffet supper will be served, followed by informal entertainment with A. H. McManus and B. B- Goodman in charge of games. The regular golf games and supper will be the program for Sunday as final preparations are made for the Carnival Monday afternoon and night, following special golf matches. All members of the club, their families along with dates of their sons and daughters, and visitors outside the 30-mile radius of Blytheville will be included in the festivities. They will be invited to view the club house, which is being re-arranged and to enjoy the four new fans given by the Duplicate Bridge League, which have made the club comfortably cool. Paul Farriugton, pro of the club, will be in charge of the golf matches which will end as the Carnival Midway opens at 5 p.m. There will be special attractions for the young fry and 'teen agers along the midway which is to be gaily decorated, with a dozen booths arranged. Such sh^ws as fortune telling, a children's fish pond, the balloon-dart game, a show "For Men Only", a barber shop quartet and various other carnival type games will entertain the large- crowd expected. A special fireworks display and piano music by Willie Blum of Osceola are other attractions slated. A barbecue supper will be served with the new hostess, Mrs. Welch Foster, in charge of reservations. into. When a woman has a reputation for being a "perfect housekeeper," you can usually find her children making cookies in a neighbor's less- shining kitchen, or playing ball on a neighbor's less - well - groomed lawn. When a man low-rates women in general, it's a safe bet he doesn't have a very high opinion of his wife. When a wife airs her grievances against her husband at her sewing circle it is probably because she is afraid to stand up to him at home. When a man tell his wife they have got to start economizing,* he expects her to understand that any equipment he needs for hie.hobbies comes under the heading of "necessities." When a woman says that a girl would make some man "a good wife" it is the same as saying that her marriage chances are pitifully slim.

Ntws & Cartoon "I Gopher For You" BETTER TO HUG YOU WITH-Resembling s mythological goddess, this bather at a Hamburg, Germany, beach seems JQ.aave 10 arms and 10 feet Actually there are five well-placed bathing!, beauties providing the illusion. Teeners Guard Good Looks Teen-Agers, you're probably very anxious to fulfill your plans for summer fun. By this time, you've taken last summer's wardrobe out of moth balls. Just looking at your bathing suit and playclothes makes you wish you were on the beach. It will be a wondeful summer, too, if you put in some work at your beauty routine. And eating the proper foods each day will provide you with all the necessary vitamins for those fun-filled beach parties and barbecues.. The skin and hair need special attention during very hot weather. If you're extremely fair, don't ruin your skin in trying to get a quick tan. Chances are you'll get a quick (and painful) sunburn. Time your- self on the beach. It's better to acquire a very light tan than a series of sunburns which can cause great damage to your fair skin. Be sure to apply sun-tan oil several times while on the beach- This is especially true after leaving the water, if your sun-tan oil isn't waterproof. If your hair is rather dry, it would be wise to include an oil treatment with your weekly shampoo. Apply baby oil to the scalp, then wrap a hot towel around your head. Keep the towel on for an hour, then shampoo. Keep your brush and comb immaculately clean, or your weekly shampoo will Lose its value. Summer is for relaxation, but that doesn't mean letting yourself go beauty-wise. You should look the way you want to look on th« beach —pretty, cool and well- groomed.
