Fragrant Valentine Flowers i !
HERE ARE TWO SUGGESTIONS for saying "I love you” on
Valentine's Day this year—each “Saying it With Flowers.”
Since this is a frankly sentimental holiday, choose delicate,
fragile flowers, like the fragrant stephanotis, sweetheart roses
and violets in the old-fashioned nosegay bouquet. Stephanotis,
carnations and lily of the valley are arranged in the dramatic
compote. The two cherubs carry through the hearts and flowers
theme. If you are far away on Valentine’s Day, any florist who
is a member of the Florists’ Telegraph Delivery Association
can send this type of gift, or the traditional long-stemmed red
roses, to your lady fair. (ANS)
Gossamer thin glass fibers that wea't bum or wrinkle are used to weave Ale
Fiberglas curtain. The candle flame may leave a dark smudge where it touches (he
curtain, but it can’t start a blame. The same is true oi many drapery fabrics made mi
glass by scores ol manufacturers.
A new dawn of brightness and
beauty is being reflected in mod
ern living with curtains and
draperies woven of actual glass
fibers. In conventional fabrics,
light filters through the spaces
between the threads but in Fiber
glas, the threads themselves dif
fuse and transmit the light. They
have the almost magic effect of
softening, diffracting, and at the
same time glowing with the light.
As curtains, glass fabrics are
becoming more popular with the
busy housewife every day. They
are the easiest to care for since
they can be washed and rehung
in a matter of minutes with abso
lutely no ironing. Because they
are made of glass, they cannot
deteriorate from sun, mildew,
fire, rain, heat or humidity, nor
will they stretch or shrink. The
same advantages apply to Fiber
glas drapery fabrics.
Fiberglas curtains and draper
ies come in a wide variety of
weaves, textures and colors and
are being designed and manu
factured by some 60 firms
throughout the country. The
characteristic gtow suffused
through these translucent yarns,
creates an effect that is similar
to a stained glass window, y

Drug For Famala "Tension State" Also Prevent* Acne
Am* sn4 other skin ailments which flare up periodically in women
may t>* prevented by treatment with a drug developed originally to |
counteract pie-menstrual tension.
The effectiveness of the drug, called Pre-mens, in the prevention of !
acne was described in a report by two Canadian physicians in a recent j
issue of the Archives of Derma- y, 1 ■l !
toiogy, puonsnea oy me /American
Medical Association. The Cana
dian specialists, Drs. Frederick
Kalz and Allene Scott of McGill
University and Royal Victoria
Hospital, Montreal, based their
study on sixty patients. Fifty
patients were women who com
plained of one or more of the
recurring symptoms of pre
menstrual tension — depression,
anxiety, backache, bloating —
and who suffered from character
istic monthly skin problems. The
ten patients who served as con
trols included five postmeno
pausal women, normal in every
respect, and five men, two of
whom had acne.
* Pre-mens, the study showed,
prevented the premenstrual flare
up of acne and other skin ail
ments in forty of the fifty pa
tients in whom this phenomenon
had been previously observed.
The ten patients who derived no
benefit from Pro-mens included
the five men and five women who
apparently were irregular in
their hormone cycle.
in '.lie course of the study, the
investigators observed that an
average weight gnin of 5.4 lb.
was noted in fifty premenopausal
patients just prior to the onset
of the menses. However, when
Pre-mens was given in the treat
ment, the average weight gain
was reduced to 0.6 lb.
The investigators concluded
that the greater effectiveness of
Pre-mens, which was developed
by the research scientists of The
Purdue Frederick Company of
New York, may be attributed to
the fact that the drug contains
significant amounts of various
vitamins, as well as a mild relax
ant. These vitamins, the report
notes, generally help to achieve
an increased feeling of well-be
ing, with the relief of irritability, j

CIVIL DEFENSE ‘KEYPOINT’ for Los Angeles is typical of some
200 such communication centers throughout the nation maintained
by local cIvU defense. In less populous areas, "keypolnts” are
often police or lire stations, where someone is always on duty.
They depend on the Federal Civil Defense Administration’s 14.1S0
mUe warning net (inset) to link them to Air Force air defense division
control centers. Keypolnts notify, in turn some 3,500 ’’sub-keypoints”
which set off sirens and call out civil defense personnel.
Patterns For Patios

New dimensions in outdoor living are rapidly sweeping the country
with patios as comfortable and relaxing as your den. A wetV organ
ized, screen-enclosed outdoor living room can add a sense of openness,
freedom and light to your home while offering shelter and privacy.
Auumg impetus tu tne trenu, i
is a new screening made of actual
glass fibers. It is now possible
to enclose a porch, patio or pool
with window screening made of
glass yams. This glass fabric is
far stronger than ordinary
screening, and like glass in its
other forms, will not rust, rot or
corrode; nor will it stretch,
shrink, dent or burn.

Available in four attractive col
ors, grey, greeny bronze and aqua,
Fiberglas screening comes in
widths up to 72" and may be pur
chased at your hardware store. It
poses no problem for even the un
handy Do-It-Yourself-er, who can
cut it easily with a household
scissors and can work with it
with no danger of stabbed fingers.
