DON’T SIMMER THIS SUMMER
Keeping coot in summer has long
been a matter that baffles the best
of us. While there is probably no
really satisfactoiy solution to the
problem other than air-conditioning,
there are a number of ways of being
less uncomfortable and looking at
least reasonably cool.
One of the first rules, of course,
is to wear light weight clothes. Per
sonally, I have always found cottons
cooler in summer than silks, per
haps because of the knowledge that
they can be washed. Tight-fitting
dresses and wide, snug belts should
he avoided in extremely hot weath
er. You can look trim and clilc
without having your summer dresses
as closely fitted as your winter ones.
Use Make-Up Lightly
Summer make-up Is Important
too. Use It sparingly during the
summer and choose It carefully.
Your skin tone is likely to change
after a few weeks of summer, so
keep that in mind when applying
your powder. Select the cosmetics
that blend best with your coloring
and then apply them lightly. Too
much lipstick will melt and run be
low your lip-line. Too mdeh powder
will become caked and a heavy dose
of rouge will probably streak as the
perspiration makes your cheeks
Nail polish In summer should bo
of a lighter hue than the deeper fall
and winter shndos. The paler,
pinker shades wil harmonize bet
ter with pastels and will give a cool
er effect. For some unknown rea
son, the cooler we look, the cooler
Warm and Cold Bath3
I can’t stress too much the im
portance of frequent baths in hot
weather. Not only are they nec
essary to cleanliness and beauty,
they are important to comfort as
well. A cold bath in the morning
will start you out refreshed for the
day’s work, but in the evening it is
wise to take a lukewarm batli before
retiring, regardless of the tempera*
ture. Lukewarm baths are soothing
to the nerves and conducive t*
Above all, don’t hurry._ Tak»
everything in your stride and don't
let anybody rush you. Remembe<
that haste makes waste, and in tliif
case it makes waste of beauty, cou»
fort and good grooming.

good. You never get to old to en
joy yourself. You live only once,
so you had better get out once and
a while because people are dying
now who neved have died before,
so get out and have a nice time.
Go to church or ball games or
wherever you want to go but go
somewhere. Don’t stay at home 24
hours per day.
