Perfume's Scent Is Fortune Latin Girl Disillusioned By House Duties Well, what do you know? A gal from another country has come to America, looked over us American w o m e n and is ready to go back home without telling us what an easy life we have or that we don't fully appreciate our so-won- d e rful American This visitor « uth Millett came over from Italy all set to marry an American who had been courting her via mail for 18 months. But she quickly changed her mind about wanting to become an Amer ican housewife once she found out we aren't the spoiled darlings we have the reputation for being. In her own words, "It was rather I shocking to me to find out the average American housewife has to keep up her own house—even does the cooking." Every time some babe /rom across the ocean pays America a brief visit aid sounds off about how spoiled American women are, how extravagant, and how little we know about keeping a man happy, our men get smug and say, "Boy, is she ever right!" j So here is a suggestion: Just file ; this little item about Vanna Sous- •> sel, 26, of Milan, Italy, who came to America to become an American . wife and changed her mind when ' she discovered that the average i American wife doesn't have "as | rosy a "time" as she had "been led to believe." I Then next time your husband i starts reading you what some vis- j iting foreigner has to say about • spoiled American women who don't ' appreciate a good thing- when they have it—drag out this clipping and ; read it right back at him. ' You might even point out thai By ALICIA HART NEA Beauty Editor Like all alcoholic products, perfume's biggest customer Is the nir. Left in bottles, perfumes evaporate and change color. In some cases, they disappear entirely, leaving the disgruntled owner with a fancy bottle and not even a whiff of that lovely smell. For this reason, use the perfume rather than admire the bottle.. Yes, perfume can be overdone. But a wise woman has a wardrobe of perfume that she uses with discretion. She beats evaporation to the bottom of the bottle. For everyday use, most women prefer a perfume or even a cologne that's light and clear. It doesn't knock one out in a closed room, but leaves a nice who's- been-here aroma. For evenings out or entertaining. a woman should have a perfume for each sort of costume. For nights when she's being; exotic, she has one scent. For more formal affairs, she has another — cool but certain. She would no more wear the same scent to a harvest party that she wears to a dance than she would wear the same dress to both. * For maximum efficiency, perfume should be worn in pulse spots, wrists and crooks of arms, the temples and the sides of the neck. Nice, too, on the hairline tnd upper lip. Miss Scussel got disillusioned without even waiting around loni; enough to find out that on top ol doing their own housework ami cooking, a big percentage of American wives also help bring home the spaghetti and meat balls.
