Near Approach Of Mother's Day
Brings Many Qift Suggestions

By JOAN LIST
Mother's Day is on the tenth of
May this year and now you can't say
you weren't warned; from the bulk
of the advertising which has lately
been dropping you unsubtle hints as
to how you can fittingly pay your re-
spects to Maw you must have gath-
ered at least a hazy idea that some-
thing by way of token is expected of
you unless you are a no-good bounder
and downright un-American to boot.
Research informs us that the whole
thing began back in old England with
an institution called Mothering Sun-
day. On a Sunday in spring it was
the custom for children who lived
away from home to visit the family
Ihomestead, bearing gifts of sugared
cakes. If, today, you want to stick
to the traditional idea, a box of candy
or cookies would be a suitable gift for
your mother.
For A 'Young' Mother
But perhaps you have a "modern
mother" who counts calories as rig-
orously as any of her daughters. In
this case you could compliment her
femininity with a prettily-packaged
set of beauty aids.
Perfume too would delight her and
a generous flacon of cologne would
be appreciated throughout the warm
weeks ahead. And even a most con-
servative mother would approve the
delicate scent of sachets for her
drawers and closets.
Be Careful Of Jewelry
Be careful if you're thinking of
costume jewelry and remember that
most mothers might feel a little fool-
ish wearing the whimseys which cap-
tivate the college girl. But they can
Compacts Are
Invaluable Gifts
For Alt Women
Compacts are what a man inevit-
ably gives a woman when he runs
out of ideas or never had any in the
first place, and what a woman throws
into a drawer along with no less than
five other trick specimens culled from
those birthday gifts Aunt Ella sent,
now that little Annie likes to feel
grown up.
Among some of these snappy little
affairs is a handy item about the'
size of a flapjack, containing all the
powder, rouge, lipstick, skin freshen-
er tissues and cigarettes that a wo-
man is apt to need for a week, any-
way. She could probably squeeze in
a couple of aspirin tablets and a ra-
tion of vitamin pills if the situation
really called for it.
Another happy thought from the
whatnot moguls is the blackout van-
ity case with its own light. This is
truly essential. Think how simply
ghastly it would be after the lights
went on to see shiny noses and rouge-
less lips. The very thought is enough
to make even a brave man pale.
As a matter of fact, the only truly
practical thing in compacts we've
seen advertised so far is glazed chintz
waterproof bag closed with a draw-
stringt that one can throw in her fav-
orite lipstick, pancake powder, air
warden equipment, swim-suit or
what you will, provided it's small
enough.
All-Out For Defense
Is Out On Our Lapels

find many uses for classic pearls,
rhinestone clips, or something really
elegant in the way of compacts.
Among things to wear handker-
chiefs, bags and gloves are always
safe bets and if she is still a sweater
girl (lucky woman), a cardigan or
slipover in a flattering pastel would
be a good idea. With a possible nylon
shortage ahead and slik, Vogue tells
us, "on its last legs," stockings will be
more welcome than ever this year.
She'll Like Books
Don't overlook the possibilities of
books, magazine subscriptions, or
record albums, if you know her taste.
Dainty notepaper or a quaint stamp
box for her desk will encourage her
to write to you often. (Incidentally,
what she'd probably like best of all
would be more and newsier letters
from you.)
If you still feel uninspired you can
always betake yourself to the flor-
ist's and dispatch spring posies, one
of the prettiest presents of all. Broke?
Well, surely you can borrow a quar-
ter and send a Greetings telegram at
least. Remember, May tenth's the
day!
Fanc yNew Frames
Impart Glamour
To Drab Sun Glasses
Protecting the eyes from the sun is
an important problem at all times of
the year but it is even more pertinent
in the summer because the sun is
brighter and shines more consistently
and more often.
There are many kinds and grades
of sun glasses and although the best
for the eyes are those ground by an
optician, others have their good
points. For lying in the sun the kind
with shields on the sides are good
because no matter which way you
turn your eyes will be protected from
the direct glare of the sun.
The kind of sun glasses which clip
on over your regular corrective
glasses are the blessing of the near-
sighted person for they assure pro-
tection when taking part in active
sports which demand good eyesight.
Regular sun glasses which might stay
on even over the regular glasses when
you are relatively inactive would not
stay on in a fast game of tennis. Of
course the best solution if you have
to wear glasses and if you could af-
ford it is to have a regular pair of
corrective glasses tinted dark.
If it's glamour you're striving for,
there are all sorts of fancy framed
sun glasses.
Ingenious Methods
Will Solve Jewelry
Priorities Problem
Ingenuity on the part of some of
the "smart young things" today has
lessened the drastic effect of govern-
ment priorities in the junk jewelry
field. A few pennies, a little imagina-
tion, and a Irip to the nearest dime
store is all that is necessary. Using
a bit of brightly colored yarn as a
foundation, string all sorts of crazy
things.
Catch your man with the new plas-
tic shower-curtain hooks strung. in
alternate or matching colors, or
string bunches of bone rings. Get
some of those small plastic measur-
ing spoons to string, or some spools
