In this instance a huge muff is matched with a huge pore pen of fur on the hat. Tiny gilt bows harmonize charmingly with the fashionable mink brown of the crepe. The smooth bodice, with its smartly draped hip!ins tops a pen- ell-slim street length skirt cut on the newest lines. The smart jacket and hat ensem- ble illustrated above to the right shows the importance of "a hat to match." Here a silver fox fur jacket with its brilliant silver marking is topped with a hat of taupe velvet trimmed in matching silver fox. Jag~kets, short coats and capes of fur have a high rating in style pres- tige for the coming winter. One of the biggest successes of the season is turning out to be the wool suit that is smartly trimmed with fur. Every sort of fur from smooth pelts to the long.haired types are in style. The spotted furs are topnotch fashion. The suit centered in the group illustrated above makes fetching use of ocelot (that fur so adored by the younger element) for the notched collar and the patch pockets. The tawny color of the fur contrasts effectively with the black wool of the suit. A telescopic tur- ban of bright red and black novelty striped wool is worn, together with a matching bag. A vogue for pure white evening furs is becorrting increasingly ira. portant. The two outstanding furs are white caracul and snowy ermine.

The World Smiles By R. H. WILKINSON Assoe~ ~ ted Newspapers. WNU Features. OVER the top of her newspa- per Janie saw that the young man with the blond hair was watching her. She knew suddenly that he was going to speak. It gave her a little thrill, yet she didn't know what to do. He had nice eyes and a pleasant face, but you never could tell about men these days, young or old. More, if she permitted herself to follow her own impulse, he'd get the wrong impression. "Forgive me for appearing so bold," he bcgan, dropping into the chair opposite her, "but the fact is, I just had an impulse and decided to follow it." Janie picked up her coffee cup and began to drink. She tried hard to ignore him. Sbe didn't want to, but she didn't want him to get the impression that she could be picked up. "Do you mind if I sit here?" he asked. "I don't mind at all," said Janie. She folded her newspaper, tucked it under her arm and walked away. She felt his eyes watching her go. At the cashier's desk it was a terri- ble temptation to look back, but she resisted it. Outside she had a moment of re- gret. The young man hadn't been rude or even forward. He probably felt about her as she felt about him. He wanted to meet her and there was simply no other way. Drat convention! She sighed, wondering if he would be at the restaurant to- morrow morning. She decided there was one way to find out. Janie spent the day calling on the people whose help-wante~1_ads she had checked in the morning paper. As usual she was unsuccessful. Either the jobs were filled or she didn't qualify or there were dozens there ahead of her or the job was straight commission. She couldn't work on commission. She hadn't enough money left to finance her- self for more than two or three days, even with going without lunches and spending only forty cents for dinner. She had to have a salary job, or else. Janie was halfway through her breakfast the next morning when the blend young man came in. From the corner of her eye she saw that he hesitated at sigh| ~ her, then went on. She dawdled over her coffee, delib- erately, hating herself for do- ins it, When she s~w him ap` preaching she folded her news- paper. "I beg your pardon, do you mind--" Janie stood up and walked away without looking at him. She hated herself more than ever. He was nice. He wanted to meet lier. Yet, suppose she encouraged his ad- vances? He'd think-~-he ~ouldn't help but think--she was--cheap! Oh, why did it have to be that way? This day was a repetition of the one previous. No job. Not even the hope of a Job. Janie returned to her four-flight walk-up feeling tired and discouraged. Tomorrow --if something didn't happen tomor- row she'd have to admit defeat. She, d have to spend her remaining $1.23 on a railroad ticket back to the small town she had dreamed of getting away from all her life. Tears appeared in Janie's eyes. The blond young man was already in the cafeteria when Janie entered the next morning. Sight of him made her more miserable. It re- minded her that here was one more thing ~,e wanted to do and couldn't because she was a girl, a nice girl. Deliberately she crossed to the op- posite side of the room and sat down. She was glad that this would be her last morning at the restaurant. She didn't want to see the blond young man again because--because--- Janie hadn't seen the other girl sit down at the table behind her. All she knew was that the blond young man was coming toward her, and she decided to insult him, even threaten to call the manager• The Words were practically formed on her lips, and then a surprising thing hap- period. The blond young man passed. by without s look and spoke to the girl at the table behind. Jante couldn't hetp overhearing the con- versation. "I beg your pardon," he was say- log to the other girl, "do you mind if I sit down?" "Not at all, Mr. Cutler." "Oh, then you know my name?" "Who doesn't know Robert Cutler, the great stylist at Weatherbee's?" ,'That makes it easier. You see, I've been looking for a mod- el for a long time. I've visited all the cafeterias and restau- rants in town looking for a par- ticular type. The Job Pays fifty dollars a week. Two days ago I found Just what I was looklnK tor, in here, bnL---well, dimcul- t~es arose. Rather hard to ex- plain. However, this mornin8 I was lucky. You came in mad-- well, would ,you like the Job?" "Thank you, so much. I do wish I could accept, but you see I'm mod- eling for Fontenal/a, under con- tract. I couldn't break it." The young man sighed. "What a pity! Well, I suppose I'll have to go elsewhere--" .'%Vail a minuteI" Janie spoke while turning around in her chair. Then she stopped speaking. The blond young man and his companion were both looking at her and grin- ning. "I--I--" began Janie. The blond young man rose. "For- give me for resorting to such an underhanded method of--promoting myself. It seemed like my only chance, and I was so afraid some morning you wouldn't come back • . . You do need a Job, don't you? I saw you reading the want ads. Would you consider modeling for me at Weatherbee's?" Janle's senses reeled. She shook her head, got control of herself and smiled. It was a lovely smile. The young man smiled back. His companion smiled. The bus bey smiled. It seemed to Annie that even the surly oafs at the long counter, wolfing down their breakfasts, were smiling. Marion By M. SCHOLL Associated Newspapers. WNU Features. SYLVIA'S hand trembled ag she picked up the phone. "Give me Main 0520," She told the operator. "Hello?" It was Roger's voice. "It's Sylvia, Roger." "'Oh, hello, darlingi" He was making en effort to sound eager. "I--I was wondering when you'd be home. It's after I0." "Ten o'clock? Good heavens! Well, don't worry, I'll be along any minute now." "Are you alone?" "Sure. Just Marion and me." There it was. The thing she had feared. Marion! She hung up and stared dully into space. After all these months. A year• It would be a year tomorrow, that they were married. It had been a movie that had awakened in her the first glimmering of suspicion. One of those triangular things involving a man, his wife and his secretary. The preview had said: "Any man who leaves his wife and goes to work with an- other woman might be the man in this picture•" Or something like that. At first it had meant nothing. Nothing at all. During the weeks that followed she found herself recalling the situ- ation presented in the film. She began to notice little things, things that hadn't impressed her at first. He was becoming less atten- tive. He wore an absent, detached look. Heretofore she had attributed this to worry about business. There was the new house, for example. They had planned to start building it after their first year. Sylvia got up and went upstairs to their bedroom. At the writing desk she deliberat- ed only a moment No need to be elaborate or accusing or condemn- tug. Merely set down the facts. Try to appear understanding. She wrote hurriedly, signed mere. ly "Sylvia," inserted the note into its envelope without reading it through. She laid the" note" on Roger's pillow, then tried to put her mind on what to pack. Only a few thingg now. Later she could return and get the rest of her belongings. The front door opened and closed. She stood listening. "Sylvia!" There was only one course open now. To face the issue and be as self-possessed as possible. She dabbed at her nose with a powder puff before going out. Roger was in the hall with a strange man~ "Started off to bed without me, eh?" he chided. "Nice gir~! Gettingto the old marriage stage go quick." "Web, here they nre," Rozer staid, removing n sheaf of pa- pers. "Wanted to wait till to- morrow--our amflver~ry ~ to show 'em te you, but ,Hm's leav- ing town and I thOUght you rnigh~ want to suggest some changes." "Changes?" Sylvia stared, feeling a little queer. • 'sure. In the house. Plans for the house, you know. Been work. ins on 'em nights with Jim so's we could get 'era done for the anniver. sary. Big surprise. Hey, what's the matter? Come on in here." Sylvia had reeled and steadied herself against the bannister. She was staring at the stranger• Koger looked from one to the ~ ether of them. "S'cuse.

Sylvia's throat felt dry, It re- quired an effort to get control of herself. "In a minute," she said, "I'll be there in a minute, darling." And she turned and rushed back up the stairs toward where the note lay on Roger's pillow. Yes, It Is Goniophotometry is a highly use- ful activity today.

You'll be praised for a rose garnish made of gelatin candiee shaped like lemon and orange gegments into thin, lengthwise slices. Roll a slice tightly to form center of rose and press other slices around it to make petals. Simpler decorations can be made of almonds or other nut. meats forming flowers with can- died peel as petals or centers. To store cake, place it in air- tight container for several weeks. Sound apples may be placed in qontainer, and changed as they become ~riveled, to provide moisture.
