Torturous Timepieces of Past,

Heavy Watches Considered Luxuries ;

Student Pilgrimage to
Treat the June graduate to a pilgrimage to


Time is one aspect of life not
to be treated lightly in the world
of today.
Even in the days of old, time
hung heavy on the necks of the
aristocracy because of the early
watches made of ii'on and wood.
With a diameter of four or five
inches, these torturous timepieces
,,,had to be worn around the neck
on a chain. Even with all the
discomfort, these were considered
luxuries to be enjoyed only by
the wealthier classes.
CRYSTALS were unknown
wlen the first watches made their
appearance on the fashion market.
As a matter of fact, not, even a
reasonable facsimile appeared un-
til the late sixteenth century when
the tulip design was one of the
favorites of watchmakers.
One petal of the flower was
hinged so it would lift up to re-
veal the dial of the watch. A
step forward came when this
petal was carved from rock
crystal, thus creating the first
watch crystal.
Grandma joined the parade of
time with an innovation of lapel
watches. These took the form of
padlocks, insects and crosses.
Even before the bustle age,
xthough,blapel watches were en-
j oying a reign of popularity.
* * *
s AMONG THE fantastic types
seen in the sixteenth century was
one in the shape of a death's head.

The case was designed in the
form of a skull, and the jaw
opened to reveal the dial.
Mary, Queen of Scots, was
believed to have been the owner
of a particularly gruesome
watch which bore the inscrip-
tion, "Time consumes all things."
Incidentally, the timepiece had
the appealing shape of a coffin!
Today's trend in timepieces,
though, seems to be in a lighter
vein with lapel watches disguised
as windmills, sunbursts and baller-
inas. Nevertheless, they can't du-
plicate the watch designed for
the Czar Nicholas of Russia.

n- Dotting perfume behind the
pe ears is out of date!
ve "It is far more effective to ap-
he ply the fragrance with a hand-
hie kerchief or wad of cotton to five
e- other choice spots," says Captain
et Molyneux, a leading French per-
r fumer and couturier.
ter Mentioned as the favored per-
ind fume. places by Captain Molyneux
gh, were the eyebrows, the hairline,
tier the arms from the wrist to above
the elbow, the elbow bone and the
- base of a plunging neckline.
The woman whose skin absorbs
perfume more quickly than others
will have to apply it more fre-
quently and more lavishly.
Captain Molyneux reports that
the perfume consciousness of the
American woman will never equal
that of the French woman, who,
in his words, "perfumes herself so
completely that she scents every
room she walks through."
More and more, however, the
American woman is learning what
a charming effect a delicate aura

[RS s Newi oI uct
of fragrance has anywhere at any-
time. She is taking the advice of
her European sisters and is not
leaving those bottles of Christmas
perfume to decorative disuse on
the dressing table.

On the Owners of Business


A "community" estimated at some
14,000,000 people owns American
business. The Bell Telephone sys-
tem is owned by 940,000 stock-
holders. General Motors is owned
by 436,000, Pennsylvania Railroad
by more than 202,000.
There are more stockholders in
the U.S. than there are farmers.
More than the membership of the
C.I.O. More than the membership
of the A.F.L. Certainly stock-
holders -are no "privileged few.'.'

65,000 General Electric employees

Compared with the boom year of
1929, American businesses have
collectively increased their pay-

45%, and their tax payments to
government by 678%.

of business directly injures 14
