FASH TIPS TO THE LADIES
By G. MILLER
Well ladies, Mia Pavan a new
personality in the fashion world
has come up with something I
think is worth talking about. She
says, if you wish to dye or tint
your hair you should talk it over
with your beauty operator, and
not try to do it yourself. This is
alright she says if you have done
it for years and are skilled at it,
but, she says if it is your first
experience, please don't do it
yourself. The dangers lie first
in the elements in the tint and
is skilled in this sort of work and
dye only your beauty operator
she should do the work. Your
hairdresser she says has had
years of actual work and study
in this line of beauty care and
the tint or dye should be done
according to your complextion
and the color of your eyes. An
other good word on this, is that
so many of these tint’s and hair
colors wash out so fast only your
hairdresser will know which one
to use for our special type. So
ladies that is our word on fashion
for this week. Good Grooming to
you from me.

One veteran Congressman has suggested that this Congress
will be known as ’‘the Congress that adjourned one man at a time."
With the work in the House virtually finished (unless the civil
rights bill comes up again) many Congressmen have simply left
Washington and returned to their homes.
One quorum call this week found 96 out of 433 Congressmen
absent. I am proud to report that I have not missed any roll call
votes so far this year. There have been more than 200 roll calls
and quorum calls during this session.
* * • •
Adjournment could come suddenly this year, or it could be a
couple of weeks before we officially finish the business before us.
The Senate is meeting long hours each day to catch up on the many
bills passed by the House when the Senate was tied up with the
civil rights bill. The House, by comparison, has only a few bills
before it each day, although there are some important mutters that
are not being taken up.
House Speaker Sam Rayburn has announced that several of the
so-called maior bills will not reach the floor this year. So we are
marking time for the most part until something happens on the
civil rights bill or until we adjourn. House Republican Leader Joe
Martin threatens to keep Congress in session until November to
force action on the civil rights bill, but adjournment could come by
the time you read this colmn.
Many persons have written about Hoover Commission recom
mendations. H.R 8002 has been reported for Houseaction, and it
has iny full support It provides for ail appropriations on an an
nual basis, this eliminating the huge carry-over funds now existing.
This bill has passed <he Senate.
H.R. 5836, which requirei that parcel post rate* reflect certain
indirect cosat, has passed the House but not the Senate. H.R. 5883,
which would liquidate the Postal Savings System, has been reported
by the Pott Office Committee but not acted on by either House.
One other bill awaPa action by both House*. It ts H.R. 5828.
which restricts government competition with private businesses.
Unless the leadership of the House snd Senate caP (or action
on these bills, they will not come up this session.
