Keep Beauty Freshners Handy
For Those Last-Minute Dates
By ALICIA HART
NEA Service Staff Writer
Those lastminute invitations to
country houses near a rail or bus
line, or to a cool roof for dancing
. . . what a respite. But, how im-
perative it is for evry girl to have
a few last-minute beauty fresh-
ener tucked away in her desk,
locker, or dresses table at home.
If your hair gets oil all too
quickly after a shampoo, you
should keep a container of ab-
sorbent cotton within easy reach. '
Put it between the teeth in the
coarse end of your comb or into
the bristles of a clean hairbrush,
and comb or brush off the oil.
It’s surprising how much and
how quickly the cotton absorbs
the droop-producing oil. Replace
the soiled cotton with fresh, and
give the hair a final going over.
Then, dampen straggling ends
slightly, pin them up for just a
few minutes while you finish your

kid curlers—the simple strip of

store— with your makeup prep-
When your hair is very dry,
simply brush and polish it until
it looks clean, fresh, gleaming.
For this purpose, it is extremely
important to have two hair brush-
es, so'that one always is spic.

The Moon’s Light May Be Sufficient
But In Your Home
YOU NEED GOOD LIGHT
• For eyes at work you need GOOD LIGHT, and plenty
of it. In the home or in the classroom, eyes deserve
the best in lighting conditions. Good eyesight is too
valuable and the cost of electricity is too low to take a
chance of eyestrain.
• If members of your family complain of eyestrain, per-
haps you need new I. E. S. bulbs in those lamps. (At
least 100 watt bulbs should be used for studying.)
• When-your strength is taxed because of lack of time
and the tension of conditions, you need rest and relaxa-
tion at night. Good lighting will help supply that

War heroine in a symbolic cere-
mony marking the formation of the
initial Molly Pitcher Brigade chap-

fair to expand into a national
movement with thousands of mem-

Although she is not loading and
firing a cannon at her fallen hus-

part as vital as the role of her
Revolutionary predecessor. For the
modern Molly Pitcher. is today’s
woman war worker, and her efforts
on the production front will con-
tribute very largely to final victory.
Symbolizing the rebirth of the
spirit of the Revolutionary heroine,
the women war workers of the
Hyatt Bearings Division of General
Motors here have formed a Molly
Pitcher Brigade, which, from the
outside interest aroused in it, bids
fair to become a national move-

PUEBLO, Colo.—Ever since the
Colorado state highway patrol was
organized it has been a standing
order for patrolmen to give one
gallon of gasoline, free, to any
motorist found stranded by lack
of gas. But no more. With the ad-

of being the charter unit, the Hyatt
group has extended invitations to
fellow women war workers to join
them in similar Molly Pitcher Bri-
gade units. Women workers in both
war plant and office, married or
single, are eligible for membership.
Though not called upon to do
battle as the original Molly Pitcher
did, the women of today have an
important part in this all-out war.
They are asked to fill the empty
ranks of industry as the men go to
the front, and some of these women
are filling their own husbands’
posts. Besides their war work, the
Hyatt Molly Pitchers, now 400
strong, are carrying on a number
of other activities to aid the men
in service—raising money to supply
them with cigarettes and other
treats, knitting, writing letters and
sending books and gift packages to
The Molly Pitchers are so intent
on their efforts that they asked the
Hyatt plant to set aside its plans
for sending Christmas boxes to the
men. Then the brigade took over.
Through their own efforts they;
raised $1,200 and sent 350 Christ-

of $3 and contained good things to

Good Posture Keeps
You Sitting Pretty
By ALICIA HART

The woman who grew up with
a fine, upright posture in walking
will find it easy to sit correctly
also, especially after she has dis-
covered by experience that bad
sitting postures bring on fatigue.
If you haven’t already learned
to do so — start now to sit up
straight. This is a prime anti-
weariness rule for the woman
whose new job keeps her sitting
in one spot all day in an office or
You sitting posture may make
or break your figure, too.
As most women know, the best
way to correct standing posture is
the perfectly simple and obvious
one of practicing standing upright.
Women who do not really know
exactly what that meanes are ad-
vised to stand against a wall and
straighten the back against it.
The same procedure applies to
If you have a tendency to slump
and sag in your seat, try straight-
ening your spine against the back
of a straight chair. Be sure the
back is straight, be sure to sit far
back in it so that the small of
your back can touch.
It will be useful to get your
whole torso “up,” too. Sitting
straight, pull your chest high
Keep the head straight and high
also. Hold the position for a min-
ute or so. Do this exercise sever-
al times a day. It is relaxing as
well as corrective.
When you work at a table or
bench, be sure that your furniture
“fits,” for legs that dangle or dou-
ble up under your table are sure
