"From the time their children reach junior high a lot of mothers seem to think that everything the children want is more important than what, their parents want." That criticism hits a lot of mothers hard. For it is mighty easy for a mother who wa'nts her teenage children to be happy and popular and one of the gang to go overboard in her determination to deny them nothing. She is willing to make any sacrifice to give her children ev- Ruth Millet erything and to always put their plans ahead of her own, and she thinks their father should feel just as she does. But men aren't .often as willing to take a back seat for their children as women are. And so while the mother is putting the children first, many a middle-aged husband feels that he and his wife are no longer and Mrs. Edd Burks and son, Roy, Mr. and Mrs. Grace Briggs and son, Eddie, of Scooba, Miss.; Mr. and Mrs. Werter Burks and family of Gates, Tenn.; Mr. and Mrs. Adrian Hill and Jim Ashmore of Ripley, Tenn.; Mr. and Mrs. Charlie Mueller of Ashport, Tenn.; and Mrs, Louise Payne of Jonesboro, Ark. Mrs. Ira Dickson, Mrs. Harold Thompson, Mrs. A. P. Burks and Mrs. Werter Burks spent Thursday getting all they should out of life . . . and that he is no longer as important to his wife as he once was. So watch it, you mothers of teenagers. It's fine to be sympathetic and understanding toward your growing-up children, but don't make every decision in their favor. Don't put their happiness always ahead of your husband's and yours. You won't be doing them any favor by being so self-effacing, and you won't be doing yourself or your husband any favor, either. The two of you are still important. And you both still -need to see to it that each of you feels he is important in the other's eyes. Those two facts shouldn't be overlooked in your determination to give your children everything they want. vian Patterson, and Mrs. Jerry Van Zandt of Fort Smith, the former Miss Annella Humphreys. The debutante color of this season, pink, was used in the decorations for the party with glass- topped tables arranged in the ball room against a setting of greenery. A figure, more than two feet high, representing Miss Brooks was arranged at one end of the Long table for the featured decorations. A photograph of the guest, of honor was enhanced with a rhinestone tiara and ear rings and the bouffant pink maline, skirt flowed into a base of fern. In her pink satin- draped arms she held a colonial bouquet of pink caranations. Nestled in the lacy fern which ran the length of the table were individual corsages of single pink carnations and at each place was a pink-wrapped box topped with a cluster of matching maline and satin streamers. These held stationery, in a pink caranation theme which, with the corsages, were favors. Miss Brooks also received a gift of perfume and a shoulder corsage of pink carnations worn with a dress of grey cotton and a long coat in a darker gunmetal shade. Bugs Move In Hair Care Is Do- It- Yourself Project Now The do-it-yourself craze has gone to most women's heads. A survey of more than. 1,500 women concludes that 96 per. cent of them regularly do their own hair grooming. Hair care includes shampooing, conditioning, setting, massaging and use of tonics and home permanents. According to the survey, prepared by a beauty institute, many women feel personal hair conditioning is practical. Sixty per cent of the women questioned live in urban areas, 40 per cent., in rural sections. Income seemed to have little influence on the frequency of home care; 32 per visiting Mrs. W. D. Bloomfield, Mo Mrs. J. C. Underwood left Wednesday to join "her husband, who is stationed at l?"ort Lewis, Wash., with the 44th Infantry Division. Godwin in' cent of the women were over the 35,000 bracket, 31 per cent from 53,000 to $5,000, 37 per cent under $3,000. Wide differences are shown in Mr. and Mrs. J.

The harmless little bugs don't bite, undermine houses, create offensive odors or carry disease. But they're bugs — and unwelcome. Less formally known as' box elder bugs, they are members of the sap- sucking family of insects. Their favorite is the box elder tree. The best method of getting rid of them, experts say, is to cut down the box elders. A less drastic method involves a spraying with DDT. LUXORA NEWS By Mrs. Lester Stevens Soak neglected paint brushes in hot vinegar to make them pliable again. methods of using hair preparations successfully. Some women use them before or after shampooings, and some between washings.
