Selecting suitable Christmas
gifts for small children usually
presents a problem.
One of the best and most ap-
preciated things to give is a book
that will suit the youngster's par-
ticular taste.
According to Miss Sarita Davis,
Librarian at the University Ele-
mentary School', "Children al-
ways love to read the old classics
such as 'Mother Goose Rhymes,'
'Fairy Tales,' 'Little Women' and
l'-reasure Island.' These books
will never grow out of style."
Pictures play a very important
part in books for children be-

cause they catch and hold the
interest of the youngsters.
Younger children get just as
much of the story from looking at
the pictures as they do from the
written material.

A POPULAR author of chil-
dren's stories is Lois Lenski, who
writes for children of all ages.
Very often children prefer
non-fiction books and enjoy
studying straight discussion on
diversified subjects. Boys par-
ticularly like books dealing with
science and animal life.
It is very important that chil-
dren read a variety of books, in

Skis, Skiing Equipment Feature
'New Look' for Coming Season

Even in the realm of skiing the
"New Look" is beginning to gain
a firm toehold.
Manufacturers in this state
have pioneered in the use of mag-
nesium in skis. This metal is one
of the lightest and strongest
known. Skiers will be attracted
to it's use because of its flexibility
and permanently molded camber.

Musical Qifts
Take Spotlight
The person for whom it is al-
ways most difficult to buy Christ-
mas gifts is the friend who seems
to have "everything" and for that
person the most practical and ap-
preciated present may be the
most impractical and novel gift.
High on the list of novelties are
musical gadgets and this year
they come in everything from the
old Swiss musical powder and
cigarette boxes to tuneful teapots,
atomizers and even toilet paper
Furs also have dropped from
the level of coats and scarves to
less expensive and more unique
bow ties and belts. Such furs as
leopard and mink can even be
bought by the yard in strips for
the active seamstress to attach to
her own original designs.
Cigarette lighters are by no
means something new in the way
of gifts, but they can be when
purchased in the interesting small
variety that comes with its own
changeable wardrobe of cobra
and morocco cases for dress-up.
A friend need not be in the
needy class, either, to appreciate
gifts of food and drink, especially
when they are given in attrac-
tively packaged assortments of
cheese or cordials to suit any
gourmet's taste.

demand for variety since it comes
in several different colors, includ-
ing rose, green, blue, and red. Ski
troopers have approved this new
For lazy fans on the snowy
slopes there is anotther new
type of ski which does away
with tedious waxing entirely. It
is made of hickory with plastic
bottoms and edges.
Skis, no matter what type is
chosen, should be picked with care
to suit the individual, whether be-
ginner or expert, short or tall,
lightweight or heavyweight.
Ski lengths are based on weight,
where weight is in normal pro-
portion to height. For women the
scale is: less than 100 lbs.- 5ft.
9 in. or 6 ft.; 100-120 lbs.-6 ft.
or 6ft. 3 in.; 110-130 lbs.- 6 ft.,
3 in., or 6 ft., 6 in.": 120-140 lbs.
-6 ft., 6 in. or 6 ft., 9 in.
BESIDES the new skis there is
a new type of ski pole, adjustable
in height and adaptable to climb-
ing and racing alike.
Several new designs are fea-
tured in skiing outfits for women.
The inner-outer ski jacket seems
to be the most popular t This
jacket canbe worn inside or out-
side ski trousers.
The short jacket with one
large pocket is another popular.
item on the list of ski togs.
Ski hats and mittens have nott
changed much with th exception
of the unique quilted hat. Another
type of headgear is the ski coif,
which resembles. a scarf but is
made to fit the head.
Designers of ski clothes have:
kep tconifort as well as style in
mind in creating ski clothes with
the "New Look."

Women Now
Doing More
More women are sewing, and
sewing more things than ever be-
fore, according to the latest Na-
tional Needlecraft Bureau survey.
This current trend is con-
firmed by the increase of coeds
who are making many of their
own clothes. Women students are
keeping the sewing machines in
the dorms and other residences
Vacation intervals are also be-
coming favorites times for the
creation of wardrobe additions via
the sewing machine at home.
WITH THE popularity of the
"new look" came the necessity of
buying major items like suits and
coats in the new styles. To econo-
mize, many women found they
have had to sew their less expen-
sive garments to keep within
their budgets.
Another reason for the in-
crease in sewing is the avail-
ability of more and better fab-
rics. These materials stimulate.
women to sew their own
clothes, particularlytwhen de-
partment store garments are
found to be of an inferior qual-
ity, but highly priced.
The technical perfection of to-
day's patterns and other sewing
aids also provide strong influence
which.encourage home sewing.
The group which shows the
greatest amount of home-sewing
is the housewives. The estimates
of the survey claim that 95% of
all housewives in the present-day
United States do creative sewing
or mending and darning.
