By BETTY CLARKE
AP Newsfeatures Beauty Editor
Young girls this season are striv
ing for that vital, healthy look.
Youth must look wholesome and
the effect can’t be achieved with
a face that looks as if it fell in a
flour barrel or one that has layers
and layers of cake makeup plaster
ed on it.
If you want a strawberry-and
cream complexion and can’t
achieve that radiant glow by good
living and proper diet, then per
haps you do need a little makeup.
But make it light. A strawberry
shade should please the blonde,
brunette or redhead. And if a
rich, creamy beige shade of face
powder is used the makeup job
will look more natural.
There are tricks that can make
a made-up face look unmade up.
There is one simple one that mod
els use to make their complexions
look pretty. This method of ap
plying makeup requires a little
patience but it is worth it in the
long run.
The skin is “iced” first. This is
done by taking some ice and put
ting it in a smooth towel and rub
biffg it across the skin. Or, if you
prefer, you can dip your towel in
ice water and rub it across the
face until your skin glows.
Now you can apply a light
foundation lotion, if you like. Take
your sthawberry-shade rouge and
apply it in the three-dot method
on the cheekbones and rub it up
and out to the corner of the eye.
Outline your lips and apply your
lipstick next. Now you are ready
for powder. When you apply / “r
powder be sure to dust it on in
stead of rubbing it. Then take a
clean piece of cotton and orusn
.the excess off. Dip another piece
of cotton in skin lotion or freshen
er and brush lightly over the face.
Blot with tissue. Now you are
ready for your final powdering
which should complete- the job.
Powder in the same way as before.
Smack your lips to remove excess
powder from lipstick.
This method of making up, if
done properly, will make your
complexion look natural. If you
use an eyebrow pencil, you should

A STRAWBERRY AND CREAM
complexion can be achieved with
makeup properly applied.
apply that at tne same time as
the rouge. Mascara is always ap
plied' last.
Don’t ship your neck when pow
dering and if you are going to
wear an evening dress, make sure
your shoulders get a good powder
ing too. You’ll need a foundation
lotion on your neck and shoulders
to hold the powder.
A teen-age girl shouldn’t require
eye-shadow or false eye-lashes. A
little mascara won’t hurt if pro
perly applied but if sloppily han
dled, it will ruin an otherwise per
fect makeup job.

them stick together in a ball.
Fruit may be rolled around a fil
bert, browned in butter or mar
garine, or may be rolled in finely
chopped nuts, shredded cocoanut
or quick oats browned in butler

be placed between two halves ol
walnuts or pecans. (Makes 2 1-2
pounds.)

if We, The Women 5
War Proved Quality Of Older Workers
BY RUTH MILLETT
Change the attitude of employ
ers toward older women looking
for work and we won’t have to
pretend to be younger than we
” writes a
woman
answer to a
column criticiz
ing women for re
fusing to admil
age and
running around
circles fight
ing a losing bat
tle to stay young
Ruth Millett indefinitely.
The writer says that when she
arranged her gray hair neatly and
went job Hunting she was told
everywhere that she was too old
Whereupon she decided that a1
least one group of women—those
working for a living—couldn’t af
ford to be frank about their ages.
If the war didn’t teach employ
ers a new respect for their oldei
women employers—and older men,
too—they will never be able tc
see their superior qualities. For
during the war these workers
stood out markedly.
Walk into a store and the clerks
were usually either very young
girls or gray-haired women.
Some of the young girls were
courteous, but all too often they
were in a corner talking over last
night’s dates. And they looked
insulted if they were interrupted
by a customer.
OLDER WOMEN COURTEOUS
If your purchase was important
to you, you found yourself looking
for an older woman. For usually
the older woman was smiling,
courteous and anxious to please.
She had grown up in an age where
“thank you” was an importan
part of a business transaction.
Nor was it unusual in wartime
to hear a sweet young thing tell
ing off the boss in no uncertaii

Pacific Fruit Express 1
To Buy 2,000 New Cars i
NEW YORK, Jan. 16. — (TP) — j
Pacific Fruit Express Co., plans
to purchase 2,000 new railroad -
refrigerator cars at a cost of $12,
000,000, it was announced today, j
The Union Pacific and Southern
Pacific railroads own the Pacific
Fruit Express Co., jointly.
The company obtained delivery j I
last year on 1,000 new cars at a *
cost of $5,296,000 to help haul a I
record volume of perishables, ex- |
pected to be approximated again >
in 1946. I
Refrigerator cars of the nation p
have been pooled in an endeavor
to bring about equitable distribu- j
tion among all shippers. The num- I
ber of cars available has declined t
2,756 since Pearl Harbor, because |
many old cars wore out in heavy |
wartime traffic. j_
The Pacific Fruit Express Co., r
operating the world’s largest ref- L
rigerator fleet, had, as of recent |
count, 36,528 serviceable cars in t
the pool.
During the war nearly all of the
commercial shipping between the
East and the West coasts was
moved by train, including the 27,
000,000 tons a year which was
shipped through the Panama Ca
nal in peacetime.
