for some cause neither of you have

L. M. C.—My parents are driving
me mad the way they are dictating
to me about the way I spend my
money. I have been working for
the past six weeks on a very good
job. They think it is their right to
take all my earnings. I want to nav

Would I do wrong to move and get
me a place alone?
Ans: No argument can be won
by fussing and bickering the way
you folks are doing. Go to your pa

them that you want to pay them

the railroad’s official statement ex

caravan of workers being sent to
work for SPL-, on the Pacific coas:.

The road’s official statement said:
“The Southern Pacific paid all

men complained that they were not

that the Southern Pacific did not
provide work at destinations as
promised. Railroad and commis

were provided upon arrival of the

important transfer points, where
meals were again provided.”

The Larieuse Beauty Bureau was established by the (
Godefroy Manufacturing Company to study methods
of preserving women's natural beauty, and to make
Ihe results of this research available to the public.
How did women manage to be
beautiful in the days before com
pacts, lipsticks, creams and perma
nent waves? That’s a question we
are all asking now that government
priorities threaten to deprive us of
many of the beauty aids we’ve al
ways taken for granted.
It’s interesting to look back and
see just how much time and trouble
a woman in 1882 needed to emerge
from the beauty parlor looking
glamorous and lovely. Sixty years
ago a woman planned in advance to
take a day off to go to the hair
dresser’s if she wanted a shampoo
and curl. If any dyeing or tinting
was needed, she might plan to spend
a couple of days there because it
meant many applications and hours
of drying for each one!
Her hair was shampooed and
dressed, carefully and tediously by
an expert in the art of coiffure
(usually a man.) After that she sat
for hours while two ?prl attendants
fanned her with palm leaf fans to
dry her hair. It was long and tire
some but she sat grimly through it.
Her cosmetics were put up In
Small bottles by the owner of the
establishment to which she en
trusted her beauty. He saved bot
tles, filled them with preparations
he used in his shop, wrote the labels
by hand, and sold the bottles to his
customers to take home with them.
They, in turn, saved the bottles and
took them back from time to time
to be refilled.
That’s the picture of the hair
dressing parlor as grandmother
knew it. We are indebted to Mr. C.
W. Godefroy of the Godefroy Man
ufacturing Co., St. Louis, who re
cently, in connection with the cele
bration of the Sixtieth Anniversary
of this well-known cosmetic firm,
made these interesting facts public.
It is also a matter of record that
many of the modern appliances used
in present-day shops can be traced
back to Mr. A. F. Godefroy, found
er of the Godefroy Company, who
did much pioneering work in the
beauty and cosmetic field. Dissatis
fied with the gas curling iron used
in the 80’s, Godefroy went to work
and invented an electric curling iron
which he patented in 1888. How
ever, only the bravest of his cus
tomers would let him use it, because
electricity was considered very dan
gerous in those days.
Later Mr. Godefroy invented the
first electric hot-blast hair dryer
designed to speed up the lengthy
process of drying hair. This dryer,
which looked a great deal like a
stove-pipe, was the parent of the
efficient hair dryers we know today.
Unfortunately, Godefroy didn’t pat
ent this remarkable invention at
all because his business advisors
pointed out that there would never
be a market for more than a few of
them throughout the country . . .
not even enough to justify the costs
of a patent.
Today we are at war! We are go
ing to have to learn to get along
with fewer beauty aids and less me
chanical service. We are all urged
to save the jars and bottles our cos
metics come in so that they can be
refilled. Old lipstick containers and
metal compacts take on a new im
portance, and we must use them as
long as possible because the metal
that formerly went into them must
now be used for bombers and tanks.
Fewer creams will be on the market,
but the women of America who have
always had more than women of
other countries know that they can
get along . . . and that after the war
is over, even greater conveniences
will be offered them!
