(leO Upper DM Mein*« Thursday, April IS, 1965 SPRING IS APT TO BE SORT of a giddy season. It's the time when the sap starts rising, when the young mail's fancy turns to love, and when the ladies break out in their new Easter bonnets. The latter can be both sappy and fancy. In fact, of all the articles of clothing Milady has worn down through the ages, no one item has come in for so much admiration and envy from her sisters or so much derision from the fellows as a hat! - o - EASTER IS A TIME OF hope. The day has more spiritual significance for us than any holiday in the Christian religion. All of us know that Easter has more importance than a time to break out new clothes, but, at the same time it seems to me, that the wearing of new clothes can be the outward symbol of an inward renewal. And if a gal can't afford one other new thing for Easter, she should buy a new hatt - o - EVERY YEAR SO LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER, people have said that the current crop of women's headgear is the goofiest ever. I'm not complaining about this, for 1 go for hats - the wilder the better, but the millinery Industry seems to be operating on the principle that a hat designed to look like a hat will never sell. And so long as hats don't look like hats, anyway, why can't we gals who just happen to lack the purchase price of a new chapeau whip up some models of our own out of material we have on hand? - o - f»> THE POSSIBILITIES ARE QUITE endless. For instance, Uiat shiny saucepan reposing in the kitchen cupboard. Coundn't we drag It out, wear it Inverted with a handle slanted upward and decorate it with some carrots and a few cabbage leaves? If it doesn't pan out as a hat we can always turn it right side up and cook the vegetables in it for supper. - o OR HOW ABOUT THAT LARGE lampshade up in the atfic? It's the right shape for a hat and if we could conceal a flashlight somewhere in its depths, wouldn't we be simply delighted with this bright, new number? If it is an "out of this world" hat we are looking for, maybe we could saw that world globe In two and trim it with some tickets for the first space ship trip to the moon. Or we could utilize an old flower pot. Invert It and spruce It up with a little parsley. This would be particularly suitable to the mature woman who has gone slightly "to pot" anyway. - o SOME FASHION EXPERTS ADVISE wearing hats to fit Milady's moods. So if you are in a soft and cuddly mood, maybe an old sofa pillow placed at a jaunty angle would convey something or other to your Old Man. On the other hand, maybe a football helmet to which are tied a pair of boxing gloves would give him notice that you really need to be handled with gloves on. - o IF YOU WANT TO STAY IN theme with the holiday, your Easter bonnet could be made from your deep fat fryer basket. A couple of live baby chicks could be placed in the wire enclosure. Very chic! Your friends will be wordless with envy when you turn up in it. In fact, you won't hear a peep out of them I Since new hats are dizzy anyway, why can't we make one out of our favorite phonograph record. If we decide this hat doesn't exactly strike the right note, we can take it off, put it on a record player and dance to it. - o A HAT WITH AN EXOTIC AIR COULD be made of a wheel of limburger cheese and trimmed with a string of garlic and a brace of Bermuda onions. But if you want a little number that will take your breath away use a garnish of cloves, Sen Sen, chlorophyll toothpast and a small bottle of mouth wash. - o A POPULAR STYLE OF THE SEASON is a hat shaped just like a coal scuttle. What it lacks in beauty is more than made up in practicality for it entirely covers the head and to wear It, you don't have to have your hair fixed. However, in this day of gas and oil fuel, I doubt very much if anybody has an old coal scuttle with which to make a homemade hat. So perhaps, we'd better scuttle this whole idea, and wear your last years bonnet. But the best idea yet is to go downtown and buy a brand new store made model! - o AT OUR HOUSE RIGHT NOW, we are looking forward to some Very Important Company - Mary Ann and her pals from Iowa. I expect that this event will make our Easter most complete. I also got a warm glow from a letter from Margaret Durant, who commented on a magazine item of mine she's seen. This was the second article I'd sold within a week so tilings have been going better than usual for me lately. - o DURING THE WEEK OF APRIL 11 through 17, people having birthdays include Patrick Rooney, Dottle Greenberg, Shelley Smith, Zada Naudain, Patty Hopkins, Michael Ott, Hazel Prieskorn, Eleanor Mowers,.

J. Shey, Gary Naylor and Dean Mulso. Mr. and Mrs. James Chalstrom have a wedding anniversary. - o THIS WEEK'S RECIPE IS FOR Western Cheese Buns - good for a crowd of teen-agers. 1/2 lb. shredded sharp American cheese 2 tbsp. chopped green pepper 2 tbsp. chopped onion 2 hard-cooked eggs, chopped 1/3 cup chopped stuffed olives 1 tsp. prepared mustard 3 tbsps. chili sauce salt and pepper 6 weiner buns Combine cheese, pepper, onions, eggs and olives.

Hoover - "Many years ago I concluded that a few hair shirts were part of the mental wardrobe of every man. The President differs from other men only in that he has a more extensive wardrobe."
