1A ROOM TO LIVE IN
'They Love The Colors..." "LYNN’S---!” They Cry
Larger Women Find Right Clothes At Last
Cheerful—attratme—comfortable, here is a room that truly reflects the superb taste
of Pro-Tect-U Jalousie Windows.
Pro-Tect-U's offer the perfect communication between Nature and interiors . . .
the cheer of sunlight, the sense of space; combined with finger-tip control of the
weather. With a flick of the wrist, the hurricane-proof glass louvers open to cross-
ventilation, or close against rain, dampness, storm, or cold. So perfect is the insula-
. tion that homeowners say one small heater keeps these jalousied rooms pleasantly
w arm in winter.
More than 1,000 Houston homeowners have installed Pro-Tect-U's manufactured
by PRO-TECT-U JALOUSIE CORPORATION OF TEXAS, 2501 Wroxton Road, Ja-
r lousie pioneer in this area. Phone LY-1998, LY-9459 for a conversion expert to show’
you, without obligation, beautiful colored slides of magniificent Pro-Tect-U converted
rooms, porches and breezeways. Terms: 10 percent down, ‘10 months to pay.

Hundreds of style-conscious larger women
—who once walked their heels off in down-
town stores trying to find a garment that
would fit and have style too — have aald
goodbye to all that exercise.
For years they made the rounds of the
big stores, and gazed longingly upon rack
after rack of stylish clothes — made for
smaller women. Finally, in desperation, they
would walk off with that same big sack with
the V-neck. The only person the sale satis-
fied was the saleslady.
Today, they shop exclusively at LYNN’S,

Fpr example, take the case of Mrs. Alma
Sprague, of 3317 Morrison (who is building
a beautiful home in Bayou Woods off Memo-
rial Drive). For 10 years. Mrs. Sprague said
she ‘‘combed the town and often went home
empty-handed looking for garment* size 52.”
‘‘Today, I shop at Lynn’s and go home with
four or five garments that fit — and they do
have style!” said Mrs. Sprague. “Their variety
is terrific. It’s a unique store and many of
my friends shop there too.”

store. Whether it be lingerie up to size 60;
suits to 56; dresses from 20 to 60; and in half-
sizes from 16'2 to 3V/y, or coats of any size.

his grades rose to 95, 98, and

as he studied the copy book.
Afterward, Johnnv sneaked a

Message Brings Health
The desire of intelligent women to look their best
and feel their best is achieved by training, not by wishful
Careers . . . social life . . . marriage and children, all put heavy
demands upon the modern woman. Unless she takes positive action
to keep herself fit, the years steadily take their toll.
For the many hundreds of women who keep their shape and
their health at THE GRACE SYSTEM, 3825 Fannin, JU-5591, this
problem is solved by expert masseuses (graduate physio-therapists),
medicinal baths, Swedish massage, systems of dieting, and the
famous SlendaVogue (Miracle Spot Reducer) course.
“The Xm&M season,” points
out Mrs. Grace Donnelly of the
HA famous salon, “means women
worn out with social and shop-
tSmgWE ping problems, nervous and in
many cases overweight. Women
X who do not enroll through the
Xmas season will certainly pay
the penalty later on.”

physiotherapist, who is giving Swedish Massage to the
young woman, gives additional body stimulation with a

How To Freeze
To preserve the freshness of.
fruits and vegetables, wrap them
in moisture-proof materials be-
fore they go into the freezer.
Frozen foods are likely to lose
quality if poorly packaged. The
dry cold air in the freezer con-
stantly steals moisture from foods
in the form of moisture-vapor—
unless products are wrapped and
Keep this in mind when you
buy containers and wrappings
for freezing spring and summer
produce. Find ouf directions for
sealing containers at the time you
buy them Then seal packages
carefully before freezing. It's
good insurance for top quality
This is hard to believe, but it
THIS GAL, an assembly
operator in a plant, was new but
talented. Plenty brains. Then she
began to make mistakes on the
job so awful that her super-
visor could not imagine her mak-
ing these mistakes. When ques-
tioned, she was very frank *
SHE SAID she was just curi-
ous to see what would happen “if
she did the wrong thing!”
TIP: A good supervisor not
only shows a new worker how
to do a thing right, but also how
to do it wrong. This satisfies a
worker s natural curiosity 1
