THE EVENING STAR, Washington, D. C. MONDAY, MAT 2*. lt»» Why Grow Old? Give Your Feet a Break For the Summer Season By Josephine Lowman Have you been exercising and dieting only to realize at the edge of the beach or swimming pool that your glamour stops at your ankles? Babies are the only people who have pretty feet. Os course, there are some ex ceptions but usually feet are the funniest looking things. Have you ever looked straight at one and laughed out loud? I have. When summertime comes and feet come out in the open we begin taking them a bit more seriously. If we are wise we give them some special beauty treatments because bunions and corns and calluses are hard on summer romances as well as on feet. Corns and bunions and calluses are not only unsightly but they are most uncomfortable. If you have these, do not try to be a bathroom surgeon but go to a podiatrist or chiropodist for help. Simple rough spots on the heels will respond to home treat ment. Use a nail brush on them after soaking in the tub. Massage a good body lotion or baby oil Into the rough places each night.

So in your packing plans re member to include the prepara tions that will insure making bathtime the relaxing and luxuriant business it ought to be. Take along a mitt that will do away with carrying soap. A dusting powder plastic shaker is lightweight and ideal not only for after bathing use but to sprinkle in your shoes for foot ease.

Travel-bound ladies will do well tc note the fabrics since they are lightweight and do not crush or muss easily and are in a glamorous vein.
