Home Sweet Home i1|1 By Nellie Hughes With Easter just a week away, the conversation among women of my acquaintance has been divided into two channels--the dietary rigors of Lent, and how to stretch the budget to get that traditional Easter outfit I sat down with our budget last night. I sat down in a coaxing, placating, hopeful mood. But the budget refused to be wooed. None of the bills from doctors, dentists, department stores, mortgage companies bank loan departments, school tuition plans, gas companies, or utilities people contained such notations as : "30-day grace period extended to all customers buying Easter outfits." Apparently auditors, being the cold fish they must be in order to enjoy figuring carrying charg- es for improvident people like me, have no room in their dol- lars-and-cents souls for things like Easter outfits. Almighty Inconsistent When you stop to think about it, the whole business is al- mighty inconsistent. The same department store that sends out the "please-re- mit" notice, also bedecks its windows with wonderfully excit- ing new spring fashions, repro- duces same in the newspapers, and sends out direct mail pieces besides If they took that "deli- ver us not into temptation" bit seriously, they'd place conspicu- ously in their windows, and in their advertising, something like: If "you have not paid last month's bill, please disregard merchandise displayed (or ad- vertised) here. Beauty is only skin deep. you get the bill? You can't take these with you, either. Your husband didn't marry your wardrobe. He married you. Trouble is, logic like this has no feminine appeal Long ago, somebody discovered the thera- peutic value of a new bonnet, and the ranks of our sex became filled with hypochondriacs. That same wiseacre probably discov- ered the importance of labels to the female heart. Along with Gertrue Stein, I know a hat is a hat is a hat-- $2.95 Varieties But, somehow, the $2.95 va- rieties don't have that certain something which make a Plain Jane feel like the Duchess of Windsor. French Room models do. Down where I live, I know: the Lord will love me just as much if I receive Him on Easter Sunday wearing last year's hal i Trouble is, I won't love me as much. And that's a fact! Receives Grant WASHINGTON -- (NC) -- A $10,000 grant has been made to the National Council of Cathohc Women by the Allstate Founda- .ion. Mrs. Arthur L.

This is like ask-' ing the price for a horse. The dif- ference between :a nag or a fine thoroughbred. It I is the same with : diamonds, not all diamonds are a- like, it takes an expert with a trained eye to see the differs- ence, One might weigh more than the other: or have better color; one might be flawed, the other flawless. The brilliance will depend on its being perfect- ly cut, while fhe other less brilo liant because poorly cut. All of these affect the price of the diamond. Each has an in- dividual effect on the value of the stone. When buying, buy your diamond from a diamond specialist. Harold H. Troxel 11S N. CHURCH ST~ 330 West State Rockford, I11. I 114 S.
