EVERY woman must have
some short cuts to beauty if she is to appear at her best at all times, under all con ditions. No matter bow much we beauty experts say about taking one's time for dressing and beau tifying oneself before going out we al! know that this can’t be followed every day. All of which has nothing to do with the soundness of the advice. Hurry-up grooming has its pit falls as many an attractive wom an has learned to her sorrow— and the every-day slogan should be: “Allow for an extra half hour so that everything is per fect” Equally true is the cer tain knowledge that times do come when there just isn’t any extra half hour to allow for! We must be prepared for this emer gency just as we prepare for tlM unexpected in other things. Take the bleaching of super fluous hair, for example. I’ve given you a formula for this be fore. A formula that calls for six tahlespoonfuls of peroxide and one tablespoonful of house hold ammonia to be applied to the hairs that require bleaching. Frequently you have found that two or even three applications are required when the hair is very dark, which is safest and best for that “take-your-time every-day” method. , For the exceptional day when you’ve no time to wait there is a speedier way to bleach those hairs. It frequently is used where the other method fails. Add six drops of household am monia to three tablespoonfuls of peroxide. Add to this solution sufficient powdered pumice to make a creamy paste. Spread this paste over the hairs to be bleached and let it dry. Rinse with clear, cool water; dry the skin and massage with either a nourishing cream or hand lotion, letting it remain on for a minute or two. Then there is the rabbit’s foot to simplify blending the make up. I’ve been boosting this toilet article to you for years because 1 love it and know that those Smooth the rabbit s foot over the face and throat to re move excess powder. who have tried it feel u I da This rabbit’s foot comes mounted on an ivory bandle and costs from 50 to 75 centa. So you see it Isn’t even expensive. After the final powdering of the face, throat and shoulders run the rabbit’s foot lightly over the powdered skin to remove the ex cess powder. Bleaching strings are another pet of mine, proved over a period of several years. They are used to whiten the finger nails and are just what their name implies, bits of string which have been dipped into bleaching fluid and then dried. To use them dip one string in cold water and then run it lightly under the finger nails. The nails will be white and transparent as soon as you’ve washed the hands and dried them. What’s Next in Fashions? % • By BETTY BROWNLEE (Famous Fashion Expert) Distinctive end Sophisticated Evening Gown oi White Satin. CHE opera seasoQ is well on its way and it brings us many new ideas in fashions for evening gowns. White takes precedence with the fashionables, with vivid splashes of color and accent sup plied by ensembles in black or red. Not only is white a decided favorite in satin or velvet for exquisite gowns but ensembles of all-white velvet appear to be the chosen symbol of elegance. Red in accessories accompanies the white gown as a favored and startling vogue, appearing as well in solid color gowns.

The acajou tulle frocks with sequined jacket strikes an Interesting note of color, as well as the velvet wrap in this new shade with trimming of white fox. Accessories of metro politan choosing incline to the fan and earrings.

EXPLAINING THOSE “LITTLE TOUCHES’* HER HEALTH# HEART AND HOME 1 PA6E 1 EVERY WOMAN WANTS These photos Posed by Miss Huddleston ^unr-Tir - Spread the bleaching preparation over the hairs to be bleached. The bleaching strings eliminate the necessity of removing excess bleach from under the nails. The same bleaching solution added to almond meal makes a splendid freckle bleach. The pro portions are three tablespoonfuIs of peroxide, six drops of house hold ammonia added to sufficient almond meal to make a creamy paste.

Mild freckles usually dis appear entirely after one treat ment Stubborn freckle* take several treatments, one each day, until they are gone. And as a final suggestion: Whether you use shading on the upper eyelids as a definite part of your make-up or whether you do not, you must smooth a tiny bit of nourishing cream on the lids if your eyes are to be smartly groomed this season. Glossy eyelids are quite the rage and I l^iow of no better method of attaining the effect than with nourishing cream. I’ve told you before that the lids always should have a bit of nourishing cream on them to keep them from aging. If you’ll follow this suggestion that “yellowish tinge and pebbly texture” can be eliminated. Then too, there’s the unex pected engagement the evening before your appointment with your hairdresser.

CERRY boarded the train for Summerville, the Winter resort where he was to spend a week, with a heavy heart. Why, he asked himself, am I running away from it? Why can’t I fight it out like a man? Yet it was futile, he knew, to re proach himself with cowardice. He hated the new Barbara— loathed her recently acquired pose of hardness, her shameless attitude. He wanted to leave her for a while—he wanted to clear his memory of an ugly vision. The train sped through coun tryside bare of foliage, dreary and desolate. Jerry, leaning on the window sill, smiled bitter ly. “No sympathy even from Nature,” he murmured to himself and in desperation fell asleep. Hours later he awoke to find himself chilled snd aching from his cramped position. The train bad arrived at Summerville and passengers were hurrying to the platform. He gathered tcgether his grips and leaped from the moving train just in time. “This will never do, he thoueht. as he recovered his hat which had fallen to the ground. “I’ve got to snap out of it. Remember, Ren ard, this is a vacation, not s funeral.’’ He walked in the brisk air from the station to the hotel and by the time he had arrived at the top of the little hill where the inn was located he was once more in good spirits. Register ing at the desk he noticed a group of girls chatting at the other end of the reception hall. They were well dressed, obvious ly of wealthy parents—and ob viously having a good time. One girl, he noticed, seemed not to belong to the clique—somehow he fancied she was an outsider (Barbara, poaa'1 by Maryland Jar baa >j co«rta*y af Irani Balaaco.) “Kiss Me." She Said. He Took Her w His Arms and Held Her There, His Mind Reeling. looking in. There was something about her—certainly no physical resemblance — which reminded him of Barbara. That night Jerry managed an introduction. He learned she was Claire Terroll and had come to Summerville alone. Beyond that he knew no more. They sat and talked in a corner of the Hunting Lodge where a. formal dance was being held and he felt himself drawn to this strange young woman who seemed so lonely. They walked in the fresh night air to a bench neneath a tree opposite the Lodge. Jerry held fast to the girl’s arm.. “Please don’t go aw ay—please," he kept begging. “I don’t want to be alone She turned toward him, her dark eye® luminous with desire. “Kis* me,” she said. He took her in his arms and held her there, his mind reeling. “Wonder what Babs would ray if she could see me now?” he thought. Then bitter little word pictures of Barbara came bark to him. He saw her dancing madly, with fierce abandon, for drunken men . . . saw their eyes drink in har swaying body with desire. "She’s probably- having a good time now,” he thought.

There are a number of dry shampoo powders on the mar ket and the wise young woman will see that she has a supply on hand for just such emergencies. Now you put on your pumps and find that the old blister on the back of your heel is still somewhat sensitive. No need to worry, just place a piece of adhesive tape over the blister and brush some liquid nail polish over and around the tape. The polish will keep the corners down as well as prevent the gummy substance coming through on your hose. Then the last glance in the mirror and you find that in spite of having just brushed your teeth they appear stained or yellow. Just mix a little powdered pumice with your tooth paste and brush the teeth in the usual way. All stains will disappear and your teeth will again sparkla with a snowy whiteness.
