i
M Che training center in Epping
Forest, where a four weeks' course
is provided for prospective farm
workers by the national service com
mission, girls from all over the king
dom live together in bright, cheerful
quarters.
They work outdoors all day, and
in the evening come together in a
comfortable general room, where
they learn to milk a dummy cow.
When they have mastered the mys
teries of the dummy their evening
work is done and they are put at a
daytime shift of milking goats, and
finally live cows. '
The rise at 6 in the morning and
have cocoa. At 8 there is breakfast
of porridge or bloater, tea or cocoa,
"oread, butter and jam.
From 9 to 12 there is work. At 1
dinner of meat, vegetables and pud
ding is served. From 2 to 5, work
again. At 5:30 tea, bread, butter and
jam. At 8, cocoa, and bed not later
than 9:30.
"I did not like cows before I came
iiere. Now I can groom a bull," said
a girl from the city when she was
questioned.
"The life is grand. Never felt so
well in my life. I mean to stick it,"
was the report gathered from an ex
ladies' maid.
THE MUSTACHE
The mustache is the movable feast
of man's upper lip.
There are five stages and some
times only five haire to every mus
tache. It is first a Bold Idea. That comes
when the prospective grower smites
fist on, palm and ejaculates: "I'll
do it!"
In a couple of days the mustache
is a Supicion. Then it develops into
a Rumor. Next thing we know it is
a well-grounded Report; and, finally,
if the perpetrator doesn't weaken,
the mustache becomes an estab
lished Fact
But in all stages, from Bold Idea to
Fact, it is (and we say this under
pain of peeving Pete Yoder) an
abomination.
DESIGN
BY BETTY BROWN
On the opposite page is the tenth
diagram in the Bathing Suit Contest
There will be two more diagrams,
ending Saturday. But you have then
another week in which to work over
your ideas, for the time limit does not
expire until Saturday, April 28.
rhat means ygu don't have to hur
ry. And you can use all 12 diagrams,
or as many more as you wish. There
are absolutely no restrictions as to
number. The more the merrier, and
the better chance I have to get some
thing different to wear at the beach
this summer.
Remember, the two girls, old,
young, blond or brunet, who send in
the best designs will each be given a
bathing suit as a reward. The max
imum cost of the suit to be $10. It's
worth an effort,
A BATHING SUIT FOR ME
Artistic ability, I have emphasized,
is not the most considered quality.
Taste of design and" ability to blend
colors make the big impression. But
you needn't use colors for your draw
ings. Indicate on the margin the
material and color. Pen and ink,
pencil or colors, it makes no differ
ence what your design is outlined
with. -
Get busy and help me and at the
same time maybe you will be help
ing yourself. The young lady who
was given the Castle gown last year
said she didn't know much about
drawing but she certainly knew all
there was to know about style.
