Girls You'd Be Surprised How Much You Get Along Without Women of Gay Nineties Did All Right Without So Much How did women manage to be beautiful in the days before com pacts, lipsticks, creams and perma nent waves? That's a question we are all asking now that government priorities threaten to deprive us of many of the beauty aids we’ve al ways taken for granted It’s interesting to look back and see just how much time and trouble a woman in 1882 needed to emerge from the beauty parlor looking glamorous and lovely. Sixty years ago a woman planned in advance to take a day off to go to the hair dresser’s if she wanted a shampoo and curl. If any dyeing or tinting was needed, she might plan to spend a couple of days there be cause it meant many applications and hours of drying for each one! LONG AND TIRESOME Her hair was shamnooed and dre~sed, carefully .and tediously by an expert in the art of coiffure <usually a man.) After that she sat fcr hours while two girl attend ants faned her with palm leaf fans to dry her hair. It was long and tiresome but she sat grimly through it. Her cosmetics were put up if small bottles by the owner cf the establishment to which she en trusted her beauty. He saved bot tles, filled them with preparation? he used in his shop, wrote the labels by hand, and sold the bot tles to his customers to take home with them. They, in turn, saved the bottles and took them back from time to time to be refilled. That’s the picture of the hair dressing parlor as grandmother knew it. We are indebted to Mr C. W. Godefroy of the Godefroy Manufacturing Co., St. Louis, who •recently, in connection with the celebration of the Sixtieth Anni versary of his well-known cosmetic firm made these interesting facts public. INVENTED IRON It is also a matter of record that many of the modern appliance? used in present-day shops can bf traced back to Mr. A. F. Godefroy founder of the Godefroy Company who did much pioneering work ir the beauty and ccsmetic field. Dis satisfied with the gas curling iror used in the 80’s Godefroy went t< work and inver ted an electric curling iron which he patented ii' 1888. However, only the braves of his customers would let him use it, because electricity was con sidered very dangerous in those days. Later Mr. Godefroy invented the first electric hot-blast hair dryer designed to speed up the lengthy process of drying hair. This dryer, which looked a great deal like a stcve-pipe, was the parent of the efficient hair dryer we know to day. Unfortunately, Godefroy didn’t patent this remarkable in vent ion at all because his business advisers pointed out that there would never be a market for more than a few of them throughout the country . . . not even enough to justify the costs of a patent. SAVE YOUR JARS Today we are at war! We are go ing to have to learn to get along with fewer beauty aids and less mechanical service. We are all urged to save the Jars and bottles our cosmetics come in so that they can be refilled. Old lipstick con ' ainers and metal compacts take m a new importance, and we must ise them as long as possible be ’ause the metal that formerly went nto them must now be used for lombers and tanks. Fewer creams vill be on the market, but the wo nen of America who have always \ad more than women of other ountries know that they can get ilong . . and that after the war s over, even greater conveniences vill be offered them!

Finicky eaters have more beauty griefs than they can bear. They may wail about a dry skin, hair that looks dead to the world, fin ger nails that break, impaired eye sight or teeth that are constantly demanding professional attention. The reason: the diet lacks certain elments that are necessary for well being. The child who eats every thing that is placed before him on the table has better muscles, a sounder nervous system, more nor mal development generally than the one who limits himself to a few fa vorite dishes. In a booklet distributed by the American Dental Association, and approved by the United States Pub lic Health Service, is an interest ing chapter entitled “What Foods Do for Teeth.” It is especially nec essary that mothers of young chil dred should have this information. Dragging the kids to the dentist’s office to have caries filled is no hilarious pastime. EAT RIGHT FOOJfS To build strong, healthy teeth that can resist and fight decay,, the child must eat the right foods— some to build strong teeth, others to exercise the teeth and still oth ers, which are course, to help mas sage the gums and clean the teeth. For general dental health cal cium, phosphorus and vitamin D, which is found in cod liver oil, are necessary. - Milk is rich in calcium; a quart a day is the required amount for a growing child. Milk is the great est known source of this mineral though it is found in cereals, eggs, some fruits and vegetables. Phosphorus is supplied by milk, eggs, primes, beans, meats, oatmeal and whole grain bread. When a child does not get enough of this valuable substance the enamel of the teeth Is often faulty. Vitamin A is a good friend that guards against infection, so the diet should include spinach and butter. There’s our old friend spinach bobbing up again. When a child refuses to eat it, it may be because it is not properly cooked, i It should not be a soft, watery mess. The leaves should be whole, no water present. Spinach should not be cooked longer than five or seven minutes to be appetizing. CHEW VIGOROUSLY Vigorous chewing keeps the gums healthy, as will hard foods—celery, bread crusts, apples, cabbage. They are also cleansing. Every member of the family should seek the attention of the family dentist twice a year for an examination and repair work if necessary. This practice saves time, money and pain. Though daily brushing be thorough, tartar may form to press up under the gums and cause trouble. Only the dentist’s little pickaxes will re move these troublesome deposits. WORLD OF WOMEN 8th AKA Health JACKSON, Miss.— (A.NP)—Health workers, including physicians, nurses, dentists, nutritionists, social workers and school teachers from various parts of the United States last month opened in Holmes county, Miss., the eighth an nual health clinic sponsored by Alpha Kappa Alpha sorori ty.

Dr. Griffin, a member of Alpha Gamma Omega chapter of the sorority, has offices and a large practice in Pasadena and Los' Angeles.

Methods of com bining foods with a large vitamin content to “stretch” or increase the bluk, plus the use of canned milks or other less expensive foods, are stressed. Records taken by the interview ers on the AKA staff indicate that a very limited variety of foods is made available to these people.
