ARIZONA Womans Youthful ness Being Extended Into The Years Varied Activities Helping Nature By HELEN JAMESON IT IS AN advantage to have been born with beautiful bones—bones of perfect proportion—so that torso and limbs are of harmonious lines. Short legs and long body don’t make for smart attire, nor does the short-vvaisted torse and long leg combination. , Add slenderness with natural curves to beautiful bones a"d you’re right there in the front ranks of the beauty chorus. If you exercise and mind what you eat, being careful not to let the years fling fat cells at you, you’ll stay that way. But beautiful figures are not to be depended upon. Poor posture spoils them; awkardness of movement causes them to lose value as pulchritude assets. CUTE WAISTS NEEDED Requirements at the present time, with dress styles what they are, Include a cute little waistline hips with pretty curves, small firm, young-looking breasts.

Jo Relieve MUery fPTui Wwwwwmw tiny hands were blessings from heaven. Not so these days. Hands must look interesting; if they look useful, so much the better. Woman’s youthfulness is being extended into the years, largely because of greater understanding of the laws of health, partly be cause of her varied activities, part ly because of greater interest in outdoor life. The smaller waist, demanded by the tyrant, Madame Fashion, is the result of two much freedom in dress. Too many women have tag ged about with revealing folds of flesh, no neat bandages to give smoothness of surface. Something had to be done about it. A littia harnessing won’t do a bit of harm. That does not mean that the oid steel-riveted corset will return. REGULATE DIET It’s one thing to have freedom of movement, another to look fleshily sloppy. Trimness is the order of the day and thank goodness for that. The smaller waist will lead some of our heavyweights to try harder to be rid of their excess tonnage. It isn’t always easy to do that. Regulations of diet and exer cise are tough, but if the good wo r k goes on long enough, the bath room scales will bring happy tidings. As if to compensate for giving us hats that are hard on the face, fashion is offering us frocks and robes that are easy on the femi nnjne shape. Necklines are becom ing, a blessing to the woman whose neck has started to go to seed. Blouses and the upper por tions of gowns are given fulln-iss to give the effect of the normal bust. Many dresses are beltless, tne pinch-in produced by cut an, careful fitting. Princess effects for evening wear are as romantic as moonlight; no other style ever created can dis play at beautifully molded figure with such exactitude and perfec tion.

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 30, 1939 Negro Must Keep Awake, Mrs. Bethune * By ETHEL HARRIS RICHMOND, Va.—(ANP)—“Thi? is Your Day, This is Your Hour was the opening remark of Mrs Mary McLeod Bethune, founder of Bethune-Cookman college, in an address here Sunday afternoon et the Moore Street Baptist church. Mrs. Bethune explained that her present post as adviser on Negro affairs in the NYA arose out of the anxiety of the president of the United States to better the condi tion of those youth who could not secure work or whatever else de noted security at a time at which the economic level of our country had fallen. It was her feeling that white children would always have su perior opportunities, better equip - ment, a differential in transporta tion and higher cultural advant ages if Negro leaders did not participate in existing £rogvan.». “This is a day,’’ she conment'ed, “that Negro leaders need participa tion in every place. Somebody ha.> got to be there for them to realize that we are to be - participants in the program. If you Virginians are not getting what you are supposed to get, it i 3 up to you to let them know it. . . Negroes are very important to everything now. They are taking the time to look around to sea what we are doing, what we are thinking. . . You must have Amer ican everywhere, realize that tne Negro is not asleep, but is wiae awake.” Mrs. Bethune pointed out t-> NYA, when the program was in its inception, that $6 a month might seem a very little money for tne little children in the rural area, but it meant so much to them. I* meant not only books, but medi cine and other necessities of liv ing. The CCC program, for instance, has offered similar advantages for Negroes in that it has given these boys good shoes, good showers good recreation and conferences with an educational adviser. Mrs. Bethune stressed her posi tion by stating, “I think the day has come when black faces must be seen in high places.” Difficulty, however, lies in the fact that “it is hard for us as Negroes to realize that the doors are open. We tend to wait until we are led on.” Mrs Bethune urged Negro youth to be come more aware of the oppor tunities of participation in world and national affairs, and to entc? these doors whenever they are open.
