This sudden style shift, from the conventional nickel - sized earring grew out of a new gadget called v.jngback. This remarkable earring back, which fits into the ear and is not attached to the lobe itself, changes the earring from an im plement of medieval torture- to a comfortable ornament. And even more important to the jewelry designer it makes possible heavy ear ornaments which former |y could not be worn with the ordi nary clamp or screw back. Using the wing back for a base, the Bee Norton company has gone wild with startling new earring styles. Most unconventional is a spider-like arrangement of pearls strung on six adjustable wires. The wearer can twist the wires to form a small compact cluster of pearls or stretch them into b big pin wheel which almost covers the side of the head. Only one of these giant ornaments is worn—a matching clip is fastened on the opposite shoulder for balance.

Twenty - six million pills, tablets and. capsules are consumed here every year. Most of all. Wilmingtonians love the druggist's acetylsalicylic acid aspirin to the man on the street. They swallow over a quarter of a million of them every week. One taking them. Most laxatives are liver pills, and there are big, little and medium sized ones. Vitamins, a newcomer in the pill field, are reaching great popu larity. Grouping the whole filpha bet of vitamins together, people eat about 60,000 a week here. One druggist who has hundreds of bot tles of vitamins to keep track of was overheard muttering to him self, “I’ve never seen a vitamin, and never hope to see' one. But A Pill A Day Esther Ann Shaw, attractive cosmetician in a local drug store gives her version of how VVilmingtonians take some 250,000 pills a week. It Is onlv an act as Esther is “fit as a fiddle.” (CAROLINA CAMERA PHOTO). local drug store alone sells about 3.500 a day. That’s a lot of head aches. Also nice business for the drug store. The reason aspirin has such a monopoly on the pill sales is that people take it for just about everything. If Joe has a headache, toothache, backache or a cold, he usually trys an aspirin first. Next on the list of the pill pa rade is the laxative. Wilmington eats about 80,000 of them a week.

Most tummy aches are treated with old-fashion ed "bicarb,” but even so there are over 40,000 commercial indigestion tablets downed every week. No tell ing how many actual stomach dis orders Wilmingtonians are actually plagued with. Like women’s clothes, pills definitely have their season. For instance in the winter montns peo ple gorge on cold pills. In the summer they eat salt tao lets. Right now cold pills are in vogue, and about 50,000 oi them are taken each week. Since the advent of sulfa, most cold remedies contain such com pounds as sulfadiazine. But doc tors still s-ay that no real cure has been found for r.he common cold. Pills help a great deal though, say the labels. Expectant mothers are the best customers for calcium pills, and for good reason too. Doctors al ways advise taking them liberal ly Kidney pills also come in for a good showing in the week’s sales. With about 32.000 consumed in seven days, nobody can say they are being overlooked.
