Fashions BY LE CLA,tE if nme. S'.__.wait g»pt. ta I Your daughter will certainly have a difficult time this season choosing her plaids. From the tiny checks to the rich-colored clan plaids there is a wonderful selection in the shops this season to allow anyone to build a complete wardrobe around them. Simply add a sol. id color dress to a plaid coat, a ^hiite blouse to a jumper and so many changes can be added to a young maid’s wardrobe. The plaid reversible pictured albove has a matching hood and is lined throughout with gaberdine. It has a slide fastener fly front closing so much in, demand. The model with the jumper on is a smart gingham, so capable of outlasting many clean blouses. For the tiny tots these cunning little ginghams are sturdy and, above all, very tubbable. The one with the bolero has a pleated skirt and an adorable pair of suspenders. Some of them now have a mat ching school bag, so dear to the heart of the first beginner. ♦♦ 'V v,™ y S'*Art/#MS One of our first considerations when dressing up is a new hat. Of course it must be black velvet. On the upper left si a stunning creation called a pompa dour hat. The brim is stiffened, framing the face and ties dp- ( murely under the chin with a wisp of veiling. I Alor»T) side of it is a new draped crown with a visor which you wear tipped forward over one eye. This hat needs no trim ming but a self material bow at the side-back and being in itself very plain would allow for a quite fancy afternoon frock and lots of costume jewelry. If one is on the small, petit side( th|s new version of the turban, lower left, will add height and plenty of dash. It can be vftorn well back of the head or if one wears an upswing hair-do this turban is equally fetching. Last but not least is the off the face model sketched at the lower right. This style will be well worn this fall and the quill and pompom at the front can be had to match one’s full ensemble. _ Then Read WHY Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound Is Real “Woman’s Friend”!

Y. just dropped in Omaha for a few days and spoke briefly on the subject “Who is to blame for the suffering of the Col ored people. He said as he spoke before the Low Wage Organizat ion, that the failure lies in the min isters of today. If the ministers alliance would cooperate together they could open up the biggest grocery store on 24th street and sell as low as the other fellow. Just $25 from each chur?h in shares would do the job. Just think of it—10c a person would epen up a big store here if the ministers alliance could teach the people to get! together in unity. The Low Wage and Unemploy ment Workers take up all differ ent kind of cases. The Colored people should support this organi zation. Meeting every Tuesday 6 to 8 p .m. during the cold wea ther instead of Monday. Here is one of our cases which we have on hand:— Omaha, Nebraska, Dec. 16th, 1940 Case: Mr. Jesse White, 2808 North 26th Street, Identif action 696f74( Social Security 507181216. To Miss McDirmid: Omaha, Nebraska, Dear Madam: I hereby notify you that this said party is in dire need for coal and rent, although he works out of the county assistance office two days a week and receiv es in stamps $24.00 a month. Therefore it handicaps him from doing odd jobs. He has a family of four, for whom he is entitled to $38.15 cash money without the stamps. In other words this man should be working on the WPA. The Low Wage and Unemployed Workers have already investigated this case. First emergency need ed is coal. Please look into this matter at once. very respectfully yours, Virgil Bailey, Pres., Grant Par ker Sec-, Rev. A. Thomas, and the » Rev. Wm. Barnett co-workers.

VERSIE’S BEAUTY SCHOOL NOTES The students are planning an Xmas party at the beauty school. They will exchange gifts as usual. I WONDER— Why a certain gentleman goes to a lunch room and plays that very popular song hit “So Long” Could it be that he has refused to be “Shorty” to one of the student9 any longer. Why Lula’s Boy friend gets a manicure from another student in stead of from her. W'hy Alberta’s friend gave her a cook book. (Such a lovely one at that1 I «uess he got tired of having to take baking soda after each meal. He eats at her home. Wlhy the teacher looks so sad at times of late. Is it because her friends keep talking of taking that trip to Des Moines. I sup pose she will be lonesome while he is away.
