His bride is attending Fitchburg State College. It's Fashionable I The new gear from knee to toe' is high socks and tow shoes. Knee socks are so much fun and the greatest companions to the new mini-shoes. The mode is to wear hot (colors) socks and pale shoes, textured socks with shiny shoes, white socks with bowed shoes. Even socks over tights if you can believe that. All but the slimmest figures make a better appearance on the; beach if snug briefs and bras are worn under figure- revealing swim suits. To chieve a smooth exterior, such undergarments should have as few seams as possible. These, like the swim suit itself, should always be sudscd out after each wearing. 'Round Home Considering a paint job for the den or children's play areas? Make a room appear larger and cooler by sleeting such shades as blue or green. Save damage to clothes on washday. Label measuring cups for "soft- or "strach' and use the proper amount. Foot lockers convert to win- dow seats for college-bound girls. Cover them with tailored slip covers and. top with a la tex foam rubber cushion cov- ered with the same fabric. A sandwich is moving into the lousing picture. A new exterior home wflll is a sandwich of aluminum siding, wood fiber ward and aluminum foil. Each s applied as a separate layer, t Is said to be a good insulator and also has a rugged paint finish. I RETURN OF THE '30s and '40s is evident in a fashion release from London, birthplace of the miniskirt. Bulky trouser legs, black shirts and wide silk ties stage a comeback in men's suits, this time they're on the girls. In contrast to the minidress were two creations right, featuring a demure look and mid-calf hemlines. Fltchbnrg (Mass.)

So the sudden rush of blood that produces a blush is more no tieceable in blondes, whose blood vessels are nearer to the skin surface. You can't rinse off a blush of embarrassment, but you can rid a fair skin of pore, clogging grime and make-up with a face cream that takes it all off with plain water. The rinse off cold cream is for both oily and dry skin. Often a summer tan does not go with autumn wardrobe col- ors. To tone it down, do this before bathing: Squish up thick soap suds on a wet sponge, squeeze lemon juice on the suds and rub this mild bleach over your body. Let the suds and lemon poultice remain on the skin for about 15 minutes before rinsing off and then bathe usual. as Her elbow-length veil was caught to a crown of lace, pearls and crystals.
