GOOD AS NEW—This filler press operator shown wearing an
acid-resistant Dynel uniform while drawing samples of tartaric,
acid, was one of a group of workers chosen to test the new work*’,
clothes over a year ago. To date, there has been no need to replace
any of the original clothes. Low replacement cost is one reason

Ever since Eve was talked into
I eating Eden’s apple, men have
debated about what influences a
woman’s mind. Until recently,
however, hardly any scientific
study had been made of the sub
ject. But now, a team of fearless
sociolgists has jumped into the
fray.. They tell what they found
cut when they asked the women
of an average American town—
Decatur, 111.—who helped them
make up their minds about four
specific subjects: fashions, mov
ies, shopping and public affairs.
What they found out was very
surprising, and not at all good
news for men interested in being
persuasive with women.
In fashions, the survey revealed
that the adage about women
dressing to please men is as far
from realistic as a bikini is dis
tant from mink. Style leaders, it
turned out, were mostly young
women who were seen around
town frequently enough to set a
standard of taste. By and large,
the survey also exploded the myth
of the well-dressed society lead
er being a model for the rest of
the women in town. The average
woman decked herself like the
well-dressed women of her own
group; thus, the average wash
woman bought clothes resembling
those of the well-accounted wash
women in her community. Men’s
opinions just didn’t count, it ap
i peared. Said the authors with re
strained, professional resignation:
“Male influentials are virtually
Having approached their pro

Experience seldom profits a
man as much as a good scare.
It’s all right to dream, but don’t
neglect your work to do it.

Leo M. Zamory, Architect-Engineer House No. A-llTT
YoU have to examine this home carefully to realize that it is planned as a rectangle—univer^ )
sally conceded to be the most economical kind of home to build. And within, the architect has
achieved the extraordinary result of putting every square foot of space to its fullest use.. The
living room with its fireplace provides warmth and charm. By placing the fireplace on the front
outside wall, you get an impression of a brick front. The eighteen-foot kitchen will delight the
most discriminating homemaker. For formal meals there is a dining room which, by the way,
provides direct access to the breeze
way. Eaah of the two bedrooms has
windows facing in two directions, in
suring plenty of light and air. Then,
too, the full basement provided for in
this design will take care of any future
“expansion area” ideas you may have.
