I
; WAS LENA HORNE
IN OMAHA?
He was standng in the par-mu
tuel line out at Ak-Sar-Ben play
ing “Eenv Meeny” with one of
those betting sheets preparing to
| make his Annual contribution to
1 The Hosses’ Oat Fund. But for
i some unaccountable reason his
eve3 continued to stray in the dir
ection of a lovely, equsite figure,
j Now while he ^has the usual mas
: culine admiration for beauty, it
I was nothing personal. Just ad
miration. Even as you and I.
! He had seldom been so transfix
| ed by feminine loveliness. There
! was an infinitesimal something a
bout this Heavenly body, whose
face he could not even see, which
caused him to forget about those
galloping nags.
The fellows behind, nudged him
as a wide gap was growing in the
line—while he gazed in admiration
Finally, after what seemed an
eternity, she glanced in his direc
tion, and smiled. Yes... Smiled at
him.And she WAS beautiful.
The most beautiful woman (per
iod) he had ever seen in his whole
I life.
' Sparkling. evenly set teeth,
smiling lips, velvetry bronze com
plexion, flirty-flirty nose, dreamy
black eyes, dramatic lashes; her
luxurious Latin hair framed her
features in a setting of tantaliz
ing paradise. Her whole being,
her every gesture and movement
radiated grace, beauty and a
thrilling personality.
And she had smiled ..the sweet
est smile he had ever seen. He
was about to pinch himself when
the bookie said ‘What’s your Bet
Buddy?” He still doesn’t remem
ber how he picked the winning
Hoss. He was just standing
there dazed like, wondering how
such a lovely creature could be
living in Omaha and no one had
ever mentioned the fact before.
And wondering if she had been A
Dream after all, because Now
His Searching Eyes failed to lo
cate her anywhere. After a while
someone touched his arm, ever so
lightly, as if anticipating his
thoughts and cooed “Here I am.”
It was SHE.again, But before
he could compose himself she had
disappeared into the crowd, still
smiling ...that unfathomable sweet
smile.

SOME SALARIES GO DOWN
These are sad days for the little
fellow with the big family. The
little fellow who has been receiv
ing a fixed salary over a period of
years. While some are boasting
of increased salaries, The Little
Fellow is in the relative and uni
que position of having his salary
reduced nearly 50 percent. The
purchasing power of the dollai
has been greatly • reduced with in
flation and is subject to even
greater reduction with no price
control and the new tax burdens
and levies.
Who is harmed by price control •
Even the Seller has to buy from
somebody else, They say prices
will adjust themselves. Do they
mean like in ’29 and the early
’30s? Even a car falling over a
cliff will eventually adjust itself.
But How? The system of price
control administration is perhaps
slightly bungled at the present
time. But controlled prices are

■SWEATERS AND BLOUSES
MAKE MATINEE IDOLS
In this generation what ever;,
woman knows is the value of a
smart well groomed appearance.
The modern woman mut be de
manding. She must have clothes
that fit her well She must know
the current values of fabrics and
above all she must be resourceful
and practical. Most women’s bud
~ets are always a challenge to
their being well dressed.
Sweaters and blouses are indis
pensable to the modern woman's
dressing habits. During recent
years several young women have
become internationallv famous
I for £heir ability to look ultra-at
| tractive in their sweaters and
, blouses. The most easily remem
j bered of such stars is the glam
1 orous Betty Grable. But of course
i the superb workmanship of the
I sweaters worn by Miss Grable
j haTl more to do with her attract
iveness than is popularly suppos
I ed. To begin with each of the
j sweaters and blouses worn by her
| was a special creation made to
| her measurements with her choice
! of colors, her coice of threads and
fabrics. Then her sweaters were
fitted so as to give her breasts
just the. correct lift.
Now all of these things are very
important when you are prepar
1 mg yourself to appear n public.
•They are important for movie
stars and they are for you to re
! member. Aten’t you just import
I ant. in your world of things as
Betty Grable ? Why of course you
are. And it is your duty to see to
: it that your appearance is just
! as immaculate and correct as any
' movie star or matinee idol. Your
familv, your friends, your most
casual acquaintances deserve the
privilege o admire and idolize you
'for he sensitiveness of your dres
sing appcarel.
Difficulties vanish with know
ledge. Skill comes with practice.
Good workmanship demands the
most efficient tools'. The pride of
accomplishment and the pleasure
of feeling well dressed may be
intangible results, but they be
come real when you can evaluate
them in terms of actual savings
in dollars and cents.
You should dress well in sweat
ers and blouses, but you should
also achieve that result at the
lowest possible cost.
certainly desirable if the little
fellow is to be considered.
MERCHANTS OF HATE
The Bilbos, RanTTTns and East
lands are having themselves a
weird Celebration down in that
strange land behind the Sun.
Their candid and whole hearted
disrespect for the manifestations
of the Fatherhood of God and the
Brotherhood of man would turn
Hitler and his gang green with
envy. Sortie people think “Strange
Fruit” and like literary efforts
are fictional. That is because i
they don’t understand the strange
social and economical system as
practiced in some parts of the
south.
Are Bilbo’s filthy and noisy mis
representation a sham cover-up
for those who accept none of the
responsibility created by their im

just how to go about caring for
herself; how to comb her hair, file
her nails, preserve her teeth, darn
torn wearing apparel neatly, and
how to wear and prepare her clo
thes.
One of the most important items
to keep in mind is that you can
not crowd all the knowledge of
how to care for one’s self into a
1 young girl's head overnight. Its a
slow continuous process and it
should begin the girl’s formative
vears. A good way to teach the
very young is to arouse their in
terest by having them try to imi
tate ,;you. •
For instance, if a mother wants
her daughter to be a seamstress
or to take a personal interest in
preparing her clothes, the mother
should begin very early to have
her young daughter help mother
fix curtains, towels, doilies, tab
le cloths and of course the young
lady's own wearing apparel. Hav
ing ihis knowledge at her finger
tips early in life, gives your dau
ghter the necssary confidence and
control that makes it possible for
her to conquer in other fields. Et_
en more than that, in the practi
cal sense, the mother will have
taught her daughter a lucrative
trade at which many make mil
lions of dollars anually.
So far we have nothing concern
ing the economy of teaching your
daughter to care for herself and
particularly to sew for herself,
and particularly to sew for herself
and .this is a most important item.
Yes, girls are dainty and girls are
also more expensive than boys,
hats, shoes dresses stockings and a
thousand and one accessories are
what it takes to keep a girl dainty
and attractive. These items can
literally cost a fortune if you run
to the store everytime your daugh
ter needs a new an dattractive
outfit.
