Many's the modern bespectacled
woman who would take issue with
Dorothy Parker's famous words toI
the effect that "men seldom make
passes at girls who wear glasses."
Years back women who had
imperfect eyesight were faced with
quite a problem. Either they chose
to see, peering out at the world
through heavy, unattractive spec-
tacles and fulfilling Miss Parker's
prophecy, or they rebelled and
risked an endless unseen, oncom-
ing hazards, including speeding
vehicles and insulted friends.

TIMES AND spectacles have
changed. Nowadays manufactur-
ers of eyeglasses for the fair sex
have gone all out to produce
frames which will not only be
comfortable to wear, but will be as
pretty and flattering as any fash-
It is no longer uncommon for
women with perfectly normal
vision to make frequent visits
to their eyedoctors in the vain
prospect of legally receiving a
prescription some day. Impa-
tient souls often dispense with
the costly visits andinvest in
frames of their choice which
they have filled with window

is made to point up a woman's
lovelier features and minimize
those which are not as lovely. In
other words, the glasses are sup-
posed to "do for your nose what
lipstick does for your lips."
MANY NEW AND unusual ma-
terials are being used in the con-
structicn and adornment of the
most recent frame styles. Still, the
old standbys, horn rims, are as
prevalent as ever for school and
every day wear practically having
replaced the once-common neu-
tral and flesh-colored plastic rims.
Gay plaids and checked
frames are becoming more popu-
lar for the classroom. They pro-
vide a bright accent for sweater
and skirt combinations and a
wise investment for those who
can afford one pair of "imprac-
Many kinds of metals are being
featured widely in current frame
designs. A new feather-light metal
has been introduced which makes
glasses a light load for the tiniest
of noses. Frames in the metal col-
lections offer durability and are
found in muted pastel and russet
shades. Some of the frames have
a trim, gold or silver, on the nose
bridge and the temples (earpieces).
Others are untrimmed.
PLAIN GOLD and silver rims
are back, but in styles far more
appealing than those of grandma's
day. Some opticians are featuring
glass styles which do hark back
to the old days, though, but they
may be worn to advantage by very
few women. Flawless features and
just the right hairdo are absolute
prerequisites for those who intend
to select such conversation pieces
to correct their faulty vision.
Clear lucite frames containing
a surprising variety of bright,
colorful inserts are now on the
market. The glasses are partial-
ly hand done since the strands
of material or metal are inserted
by hand throughout the frame.
Lace, gold, silver and straw are
only a few of the ornamenta-
tions being used. These frames
are particularly smart for dress
Wearing glasses is no longer
considered detrimental to a wom-
an's looks now that manufacturers
create eye wear which is not only
therapeutic, but cosmetic in de-
sign. Current thought regarding
glasses is aptly phrased in a prom-
inent eyeglass firm's advice to its
patrons, "You look through your
glasses; the rest of the world looks

hold its second meeting of the se-
mester at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow at
the Hillel Foundation.
The organization has extended

gram will be centered about pres-
ent day life in Israel.
The evening will start with the
singing of Hebrew songs which
will be followed by a report by Al

Special attraction of the evening
will be the showing of the film
"Homecoming 1949." The movie
will present an up-to-date survey
of the national and international
problems which Israel is facing
with emphasis on the recent elec-
tions, immigration and housing.
